First, State of the Union insanity from the Republicans:

Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA) gave the official GOP response and laid down some stunning, bald-faced lies but did it in such a boring, Mom-next-door kind of way:

  • the "trusts people to make their own decisions, not a government that decides for you" except of course when it comes to a woman's right to choose. But that goes without saying, right?
  • the GOP "helps working families rise above the limits of poverty." Except when they slash government aid and oppose raising the minimum wage.
  • the GOP "protects our most vulnerable." Except when they slash social services for the mentally ill or oppose the Violence Against Women Act or slash funding to help vets returning from Iraq or Afghanistan.

Sen. Lindsay Grahama (R-SC): "The world is literally about to blow up and our president did not really paint a fair picture of the threats we face."

Jim Garrow: Obama should be put down like a rabid dog. Nice.

Rep. Tim Huelskamp (R-KS) uses Twitter to attack Obama during SOTU then goes on Rachel Maddow's Show and goes ballistic.

Rep. Michael Grimm (R-NY) threatens reporter live on air after SOTU because reporter asked about his corruption scandal. Now nobody will ask about it for sure. Maybe it was the steroids talking. He has a history of threatening people. Grimm apologizes to reporter. Maybe that will make it go away?

Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN): Obama is not a King so we'll sue him.

6 craziest reactions to Obama's SOTU speech.

Round-up of RWNJ tweeting about SOTU.

And now for your Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) round-up:

RWNJ radio host Gordon Klingenschmitt: It should be illegal to recruit minors into homosexual sin.

The right wing christianists go bonkers over yet another christianist child getting their christianist rights all stomped on by some Jesus-hating, Satan-loving teacher. Except that's not what happened. At. All.

Bob Vander Plaatz is the head of The Family Leader. He's thinking of running for US Senate in Iowa. His views of what government is and should be are totally insane.

American Family Association's Bryna Fischer: Did Beyonce and Katie Perry sell their souls to The Devil? Editor-At-Large Ben Shapiro: Hollywood will doom marriage equality.

Michelle Malkin: billionaires getting bullied.

Eric Bolling of Fox News fails to paint Obama as hypocrite on executive orders.

Charles Payne of Fox Business: Tom Perkins ahead of the curve with his Kristallnacht comparison.

Fox News Martha McCallum on income inequality for women: Most women don't want a special little handout. Here's more analysis of McCallum's insanity.

Fox News Nina Easton: Government aid programs like disability benefits consign people to poverty. It couldn't be poverty doing it. No way.

Rep. Tom Cole (R-OK): GOP is never going to stop trying to repeal Obamacare. This is a picture perfect definition of insanity.

All Texas GOP Lt. Gov candidates want creationism taught in school.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
