Pamela Powers Hannley, a progressive voice for Arizona
As announced earlier this week, the worst-ever Speaker of the US House of Representatives, John Boehner, is coming to Marana on Saturday to be the headliner at a $500/plate fundraising dinner for CD2 candidate Martha “I got no opinions” McSally and gubernatorial candidate Andy “I heart the Christian Right” Tobin.
These three Regressive knuckle-draggers are perfect for each other: anti-abortion, anti-woman, anti-gay, anti-education, anti-immigration-reform, anti-healthcare-reform, pro-military-industrial-complex, pro-NRA, pro-Christian-Taliban, pro-Wall-Street. It’s a menage-a-tois made in
heaven… er… backroom deals with the Koch Brothers.
By refusing repeatedly to offer opinions on just about any issue except the fate of her old aircraft, the A10, McSally has been playing it even safer with her campaign in 2014 than she did in 2012. But actions speak louder than words. Her alignment with Teapublican Tobin (who has been in the thick of Arizona’s anti-gay and anti-woman legislation and personally tried to stop the Equal Rights Amendment this year) speaks volumes. Campaigning with one of the Arizona Legislature’s Christian Taliban adds to McSally’s street cred as a Teapublican “Regressive”.
If you’re as excited about the Boehner/McSally/Tobin event as I am, but don’t have an extra $500 to donate to the newly formed “McSally Tobin Victory Committee”, you may want to join the
welcoming committee protest outside the event. Come to the corner of Tangerine and Dove Mountain Blvd at 11 a.m. on Saturday, March 29, and bring signs! Details here. Tucson, it’s your turn to show Teapublican Regressives how much you enjoy austerity, poverty, and legislation that steals your freedom.
[NOTE: I have stopped calling Teapublicans “conservative”, since they conserve nothing. “Regressive” is far more descriptive of their policies and ideology.]
