Washington state cast its 12 electoral votes for Barack Obama, as was the will of its electorate. Its voters also saw fit to legalize both gay marriage and recreational marijuana usage.
So, as I'm sure you can imagine, a place like Seattle is pretty much a nightmarish hellscape of oppression for freedom-loving Tea Party activists…
"It's getting harder and harder for me. I was at Trader Joe's, and I was glaring at everyone around me," says Keli Carender, 33, co-organizer of the local group… "I kept thinking I was surrounded by people who are destroying freedom,"says Carender. "It's starting to make me angry, not wanting to be around these people."

"This party tonight could be a model for the way that the world should work, and I just want to say that I'm totally stoked to the max about it." — Barack Obama, circa 1980

This actually ranks among her most astute criticisms of the president…
Sarah Palin on Monday said Democrats who "still have that addiction to the hope-ium" President Barack Obama peddled four years ago need to "open their eyes" and vote for Mitt Romney this November.
Well done, Sarah, you truly are the GOP's heroine. (Sorry, I couldn't resist. I'll show myself out.)
But anyway, she should thank John McCain for that reference. She had no idea what the drug was before hearing about his time as a First Opium War private in 1841.

You can't throw a banana in Miami without hitting a convicted cocaine trafficker. That's a lesson the Romney campaign learned Monday after stopping at a local fruit and vegetable stand to hand out juices to the crowd and film a political ad. Come to find out, the proprietor of the stand is a convicted cocaine trafficker. See?
Here's the story…
The Republican presidential candidate is holding an afternoon rally at Palacio de los Jugos, which is owned by Reinaldo Bermudez, who served three years in federal prison after pleading guilty in 1999 to one count of conspiracy to distribute cocaine.
Bermudez, AKA "El Guajiro," was a member of 12-person ring that was busted in 1997 for attempting to smuggle more than a ton of yeyo disguised as fish and soap into three South Florida ports. According to Bermudez's indictment, some of his co-conspirators had nicknames straight out of a Hollywood movie, like "Ali Baba," "Skeletor," "Buckwheat," and "Stump."
Hollywood?! These conspirator nicknames sound more like they come out of a Disney movie! Yeyo! I'm not sure what yeyo means, so I'm just going to start saying it after I make a joke.
Bermudez actually sounds like a nice guy who has put his past behind him. He claims the Romney camp vetted him beforehand and knew about his past. A drug smuggler has has less compunction about revealing his past than Mitt Romney does his taxes. Put that in your crack pipe and smoke it, Mittens!
So why is this story news? I called the news and asked them and their response was, and I quote, "YOLO, dawg!"

I haven't thought about the Herman Cain ad — the confounding one in which his campaign strategist Mark Block smoked a cigarette seductively into the camera — in months, and yet I somehow felt an immense sense of relief upon watching this explanatory video from Block himself…
"I still can't go anywhere without anybody asking for an autograph on a cigarette."
Reacquaint yourself with Block's smoldering foray into the public eye after the jump…
