Republican candidates and the super PAC's that support them are spending huge wads of cash on ads attacking each other. A relatively small group of billionaires have directed approximately $54 million to super PACs this cycle, bankrolling a tide of negative ads in primary-contest states. http://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/super-pac-donors-revealed-who-are-the-power-players-in-the-gop-primary/2012/02/21/gIQAPU3BSR_story.html
In other news, Bob Morris, an Indiana lawmaker, refused to support a resolution celebrating the 100th anniversary of the Girl Scouts because he feels the group is a "radicalized organization" that "sexualizes" young girls and promotes homosexuality. According to the Associated Press, Morris said he found online allegations that the Girl Scouts are a tactical arm of Planned Parenthood, encourage sex and allow transgender females to join. He also wrote that the fact that first lady Michelle Obama is honorary president should give lawmakers pause before they endorse the Girl Scouts.
Perhaps those crazy, radical, sexy Girl Scouts should rename their signature cookie Tranny Trefoils.
