Grover Norquist not happy with chuck muth?

November 21, 2011

In a stunning turn of events it appears chuck muth’s no-tax pledge franchise may be in jeopardy. Why? Because Nevada has significantly under-performed for Grover Norquist versus the rest of the country.

In fact, chuck muth’s ability to get state elected officials in Nevada to sign “the pledge” is by far one of the worst in the nation. At the federal level both Republican congressmen have signed the pledge, but that is to be expected. Nearly all federally elected office holders do.

Chuck Muth in happier times was able to get a photo-op with a Republican governor signing the pledge. Of course we know how that worked out for the ex-governor. Nevada's current Republican Governor wants nothing to do with Chuck Muth and that governor has a 75% approval rating!

But at the state level most Republicans, including the Governor, Lt. Governor and the overwhelming majority of the Republican legislators have not signed “the pledge”. What’s worse for chuck muth’s job evaluation is the fact that Nevada’s Governor actually opposes taxes, yet he recognizes muth for the bipolar loser he is — which is why Grover Norquist’s ‘official pledge’ goes unsigned.

And guess who is on the hot seat for Nevada’s poor showing? That’s right chuck muth. His biggest problem according to more than one elected official in Nevada is that he is a political liability who can not be trusted with information.

Muth has become the stereotypical political parasite to both politicians (e.g. Elizabeth HalsethEd Goedhardt, Richard McCarthur, etc.) and political journalists (pathological liar, etc.).

So if you are an articulate conservative who has no history of stalking the governor’s mansion or advocating for statewide service taxes and gay marriage, then you might want to call Grover Norquist about a possible job opening in Nevada.

Translating Idiot Speak

August 8, 2011

At the risk of boring you blind, we will illustrate points  #2, #4 and #5 of Group Think 101.

This illustration comes from chuck muth’s most recent e-mail ‘alert’. The original ‘alert’ text is quoted below. The translated  portion, or what Idiot Muth meant to say, appears in italic red letters.

“I finally got around to reading Sen. Raggio’s biography, A Man of His Word, on the flight home to Las Vegas from last week’s ALEC meeting in New Orleans.”

By finally, I mean to say I am so cheap I didn’t read Senator’s Raggio’s book until I could borrow a free copy from someone. 

Now, before I get started, let me say this: Personally, I like Bill Raggio.  A lot.  I’ve known him since 1996.  I respect him.  I admire him.  But on this tax-and-spend issue..he’s just plain wrong.  Nothing personal; just business.

“Just business” means I don’t give two craps about anything in Nevada politics other than myself and trying to create boogie men inside the  Nevada Republican Party. I do this so that I can create a wedge with one or two deep pocketed conservative donors who I hope will write checks to one of my “non-profits” instead of supporting the GOP directly.

Fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice, shame on me.

I don’t really know why I wrote that, I just can’t write anything without using at least one lame cliché.

We Need More Pledge Signers!

Grover Norquist told me that unless more elected officials are beholden to me they will sell my pledge franchise to someone else.

So I hope you’ll contribute $100, $50, $25 or whatever you can to help us flood the state with Nevada’s Least Wanted signs and help elect better, more conservative candidates in GOP primaries next year. 

If I don’t make a good faith effort to attack Republicans, then conservatives might wake up and  realize I am actually the guy who wants to legalize potlegalize gay marriage and introduce a service tax on Doctors, CPA’s and plumbers. Hell, I’ve been told we could even add a Gross Receipts Tax on ALL businesses in Nevada, as long as the magic tax fairy is able to “offset” them somewhere else.

Oh well, if I can scam just enough of the conservatives in Nevada to make a living off of GOP primary elections then I will keep doing it.

Disclosure: I don’t care if the GOP wins or loses, I just need a check. After all, your donations allow me to take two week vacations… PT Barnum was right!
