Democratic Florida Rep. Joe Garcia — fresh off being caught eating his own earwax on camera — was caught red-handed (or is it yellow-fingered?) in another gaffe this week, claiming that low crime rates in border cities with lots of federal immigration workers is proof that “Communism works.”
Don’t hold this against me, but I’m going to blurt it out. How do I say this … men in the South, they are a little effeminate,’ he offered when I mentioned the stunning news. When I asked him what he meant, he added, ‘They just have effeminate mannerisms...' -Former Montana Gov. Brian Schweitzer, Democrat
Colo. Gov. John Hickenlooper (D) accidentally referred to Lt. Gov. Joe Garcia as a “rising sex star” Wednesday while introducing Garcia at a literacy event at a Denver elementary school, the Associated Press reports.

Silvestre Reyes, the Democratic nominee to head the House Intelligence Committee, failed to answer both questions correctly last week when put to the test by Congressional Quarterly. He mislabeled Al Qaeda as predominantly Shiite, and on Hezbollah, which is mostly Shiite, he drew a blank. “Speaking only for myself,” he told reporters, “it’s hard to keep things in perspective and in the categories.”
"Hands up, Don’t Shoot"
Liberal Democrats Fall For Hoax, Embarrass Themselves and Their Country
The “Hands up, don’t shoot” slogan used by Democrat activists since August 2013 is a complete falsehood, outgoing Attorney General Eric Holder admitted Wednesday.

It appears someone on the White House press staff may have forgotten to use spellcheck. The press office misspelled the name of 40th president Ronald Reagan not once, but three times in media documents about President Obama's schedule on Wednesday... "The President delivers remarks at the League of Conservation Voters Capitol Dinner (at the) Ronald Regan Building and International Trade Center," it says.

Sen. Charles E. Schumer, New York Democrat, stumbled Tuesday over basic American history, crediting Thomas Jefferson for authorship of the Bill of Rights during a debate over the First Amendment and campaign finance. “I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute,” Mr. Schumer said.

Vice President Biden chose an inopportune time for either a nap or some deep reflection today. As President Obama weighed in on one of the most important issues of the day, outlining his plan to deal with deficit reduction and attack the national debt, at least one audience member did not appear to be fully engaged.

The hiring of politically wired Democrat Sheila Burgess as the state’s highway safety director — despite her four-page driving record that included 7 crashes and 4 speeding tickets — was a “screw up,” Gov. Deval Patrick conceded today... Secretary of Public Safety and Security Mary Heffernan said last night Burgess will be “reassigned.”

It appears Democrat McBride received a phone call from a constituent asking what Trenton was doing to combat the dreaded chroma-labial infection. When she found herself questioning a health official at a hearing, Democrat McBride raised her concerns, as reported by NJ.com: "It's already claimed 85 lives and there's a case here in Trenton," McBride said. "It is a virus that is 10 times greater at this point than the AIDS virus."

“A smart fence, which is what Senator McCain and I want to build--since he’s from Arizona, I think he knows more about this than the Senator from South Dakota who only has a border with Canada and that is quite different,” Landrieu said. South Dakota does not share a border with Canada. It does, however, share borders with North Dakota, Wyoming, Montana, Minnesota, Nebraska and Iowa.

On February 28th, the Democrat Party used their official Twitter account to tell followers the minimum wage is worth less than "when Ronald Reagan was in Congress." The problem--Reagan was never in Congress.

Chairman Tom Perez
"The Electoral College is not a creation of the Constitution. It doesn't have to be there."
Contrary to Perez's claim, the U.S. Constitution establishes the Electoral College in Article II, and the 12th Amendment details the process by which electors will meet and vote for president and vice president:
"Each State shall appoint, in such Manner as the Legislature thereof may direct, a Number of Electors, equal to the whole Number of Senators and Representatives to which the State may be entitled in the Congress: but no Senator or Representative, or Person holding an Office of Trust or Profit under the United States, shall be appointed an Elector," Article II states. -Melissa Quinn
Tom Perez is a graduate of Brown University, Harvard Law School and the John F. Kennedy School of Government.

CO State Rep. Diana DeGette (D) "I will tell you these are ammunition, they’re bullets, so the people who have those now they’re going to shoot them, so if you ban them in the future, the number of these high capacity magazines is going to decrease dramatically over time because the bullets will have been shot and there won’t be any more available."
