So, who’s the next Republican House Majority Leader?

http://twitter.com/#!/allahpundit/status/476519295481282560

He’s not out yet, but House Majority Leader Eric Cantor has been shown the door by Virginia voters by an impressive margin. That’s quite a shake-up, and it raises the question: Who’s taking over as House Majority Leader? Twitter has already started a wish list.

‘We are being slaughtered’: Yazidi Kurds face genocide [video]

http://twitter.com/#!/DavidBCohen1/status/497509437775437824

You may not have even heard of the Yazidis, a religious minority primarily Kurdish in ethnicity. Since they are not fundamentalist Islamists, ISIS has targeted them for extermination. Currently tens of thousands of Yazidis are under siege in the mountains of Iraq where they are suffering from a lack of food and water.

Meanwhile much of the world is diminishing the real meaning of “genocide” by using the word to describe Israel’s efforts to root out Hamas terrorists in Gaza.

Rush Limbaugh blasts latest Democrat attempt to silence him

http://twitter.com/#!/TheRightWingM/status/512342523792994304

The Democrats have launched another “Stop Rush” push to get Rush Limbaugh taken off air, but mostly to fund raise.

.@IsraelDCCC: Limbaugh "should be taken off the air immediately." Agree? Add your name. http://t.co/7MJcjaGN0u pic.twitter.com/mQhxYHSgGp

— DCCC (@dccc) September 17, 2014

Limbaugh is fighting back:

The .@DCCC lie about .@RushLimbaugh in .@politico: http://t.co/2iAx7yYUpE. Don’t let them raise funds this way. Spread the word.

— Rush Limbaugh (@rushlimbaugh) September 17, 2014

Limbaugh says that the DCCC is not showing the entirety of his remarks for context, which are available here.

The DCCC doesn’t appreciate any attempt to throw a wrench in their fundraising efforts:

.@rushlimbaugh These are YOUR words, Rush. Will you apologize for your disgusting comments? http://t.co/YkDsf9eBcZ pic.twitter.com/Id1tMIf4Go

— DCCC (@dccc) September 17, 2014

It has to be asked:

.@rushlimbaugh I'm curious, did the @dccc solicit donations from Juniata Broaddrick, Kathleen Willey, Paula Jones?

Heartbreaking photo inspires dog lovers to dedicate pics to Nathan Cirillo

http://twitter.com/#!/TorontoStar/status/525248006501982208

Face it: posting a photo of your pet to social media isn’t exactly groundbreaking. Twitter users today, though, have started the #TweetAPicOfYourDog hashtag for a special reason: to honor reservist (and dog lover) Nathan Cirillo, who was murdered Wednesday in a terrorist attack while guarding Canada’s National War Memorial. As Twitchy reported, an utterly heartbreaking photo of Cirillo’s dogs waiting for their master to return home is bringing tears to the eyes of more than a few.

Here are just a few photos tweeted in Cirillo’s memory by fellow dog lovers.

Rest in peace Cpl. Cirillo.

You won’t believe what this shameful Texas Dem said at Wendy Davis event

http://twitter.com/#!/BecketAdams/status/527090371340161024

Yes, it did.

Oh, yes, it’s real. And it is not spectacular: It is shameful and shameless. Check out what an oh-so-classy Dem state representative said at a recent Wendy Davis campaign event:

More from the Daily Caller:

“And then we have this guy who kind of just rolls around thinking that he can get tort reform for himself but take it away from everybody else in the state of Texas,” said state representative Dawnna Dukes at the event which was held Saturday in Pflugerville, just east of Austin.

Dukes’ remarks were filmed and uploaded to YouTube.

Wow.

Just when you think they can’t sink any lower.

And an excellent exit question:

‘Can’t wait for this one’! Dana Loesch reveals cover of upcoming book [pic]

http://twitter.com/#!/gordonshuckrow/status/477090652006522880

Dana Loesch has a message for all the gun grabbers out there: Don’t mess with the Second Amendment — or with her:

http://twitter.com/#!/DLoesch/status/477076233193148417

Loesch, via The Blaze:

“Gun control is the ultimate war on women. Firearms are the equalizer between the sexes. Sam Colt made us equal, indeed. This book explores that, the racist roots of gun control, and debunks the biggest arguments made by anti-gun extremists. The AR is on the cover because it is the most vilified, misunderstood rifle in America, responsible for the fewest crimes. Education is the antidote to ignorance. Consider this book the medicine.”

Oh. Yes.

Dale Earnhardt Sr. comparisons sparked after Tony Stewart hits, kills Ward

http://twitter.com/#!/JohnEkdahl/status/498461478643838977

As Twitchy reported, NASCAR driver Tony Stewart crashed into and killed another driver, Kevin Ward Jr., last night at a race in upstate New York. Some Twitter users are arguing that Stewart should not race today as a result of the fatal accident.

Dale Earnhardt, Jr. whose father Dale Earnhardt, Sr., a beloved NASCAR driver who was also killed in a racing accident, tweeted his condolences.
