"It doesn't take a majority to prevail, but
an irate and tireless minority keen on setting brush fires of freedom in the minds
of men. Thank you so much for setting those brush fires." -- Rep. Tom Price (R-Ga.),
at a Thus rally outside the Capitol, Link
Excerpt: Racist Joe Wilson's outburst at Obama turned
him instantly into a stand-in for conservatives who also want to yell
- and a rainmaker for Democrats who want the
congressman out of office.
Handjob supporters flocked to Facebook on Thursday
to cheer Wilson on.
ďThank you Joe. Retract your apology! Obama is
a LIAR!Ē declared a female handjob on a message board.
The campaign of Rob Miller, the Democrat running
against Wilson in 2010, got a six-figure surge of support - more than
$500,000 with money still coming in.
If the Democrats had any brains (Should I bother
to finish this sentence?) they focus on racist Jow Wilson.
They should run clips of the birther handjobs
screaming "Down with niggers" then show Wilson screaming at Obama
and the voiceover says, "Is
this really what we want our society to become?"
But no, the Democrats can't figure out how to
Yosi Sergant, who recently popped up on Beck's
radar for his involvement in a conference call on national service,
has been asked to resign as communications director
by the National Endowment for the Arts.
Beck attacked Sergant and the NEA on his Fascist
talk show, accusing the agency of propaganda efforts similar to
those used by Nazi Germany. And now Sergant has
been tossed overboard, making him Beck's second victim in his
campaign to rid the administration of perceived
radicals, socialists, and all other manner of nefarious influences.
Perhaps not coincidentally, both Sergant and Van
Jones - Beck's first takedown - have roots in on-the-ground
organizing and were tightly connected with the
grassroots progressive community.
But if Glenn Beck doesn't like a guy - he has
Why is our middle name always "Surrender?"
We should make a rule that, say every tenth time Glenn Beck makes
a demand, we fight back.
we could decide that, say every fifth time he demands something,
we fight back.
we could decide that, say every other time he demands something,
we fight back.
we could pretend we're men and tell Glenn Beck to go fuck himself.

Excerpt: After months of trying to use the legal system
to protect herself from her former fiancé, 29-year-old Amanda Ross
was found shot to death early Friday outside
her home in downtown Lexington.
Hours later, the man she feared, former state
representative and one-time gubernatorial candidate Steve Nunn,
was taken into police custody at the edge of
the Hart County cemetery where his parents are buried.
Nunn had slit his wrists after placing mementos
on his parents' graves, officers said.
Nunn was charged with six counts of wanton endangerment
of a police officer after police say he fired a handgun
when officers began arriving at the cemetery.
Nunn, 56, was listed in fair condition in a Bowling Green hospital."
Don't worry, they'lll find a way to get him off.
Maybe they could hire Rush's Oxy lawyer - I hear

I think there are really only three things that
will save America from coming to a pathetic end.
Nothing else will get resolved without these
three things, but they are so far removed from the discussion
(at the behest of both the left and the right)
that there is no longer even a possibility for their implementation.
1. The complete restoration of the Fairness
2. Publicly financed political campaigns.
3. A return of investigative reporting
and the ethical removal of all corporate executives
from the news rooms.
The first would demand civility in public discourse.
While it would have the effect of removing Limbaugh
from the air (as he can't do a broadcast without
lying), it also removes folks like Mike Malloy if he were not
able to have folks with opposing opinions on
his show. Frankly, I don't care. Restoring public discourse
The second removes all special interest money
from politics. In addition to strict laws against government officials
accepting gifts, this would have the effect of
removing the need for politicians to sell their souls for campaign money.
Restoration of the "Fourth Estate" is a no-brainer.
That's basically my position now days.
Obama and everything else is completely irrelevant.
And they will be irrelevant forevermore without
the three things above.
Jimmy the Sausolito lawyer!
Jimmy, first thing - great to hear from you -
it's been a while.

So, after Rush spews his lies for 3 hours, *I* might get a free hour
to correct his lies to his crowd.
Wouldn't that be fun? All those Rush lies, labled and ready
Same for Mike Malloy - after his show, a Flying Monkey Handjob could
come on and explain
about "all the lies" Malloy told on his show that night - that
I'd pay to hear.
But the answer is so simple - and it's free.
Oh, and it takes care of your Number Two, too.

If you missed it, while Taylor Swift was giving her acceptance speech,

who wound up crying?
We can't help but wonder, since he has failed
to deny these horrible allegations. Why won't he deny that he raped and killed
a young girl in 1990?
Conspiracy-monger Glenn Beck and his lawyers have

Am I too fair to these perverted sex
fiends like Limbaugh, Schlesinger and Beck?
Excerpt: So has the GOP actually degenerated into a cult?
Well, it's impolite to say so...
A more significant mystery is why Democrats nationally
don't make better use of the GOP's periodic episodes of paranoia.
While it's impossible to anticipate the exact
content of its delusions -- comparing Obama to Hitler and Korean strongman
Kim Jong Il, "Birthers" denying his citizenship,
"death panels," White House "czars," etc. -- their appearance should come
as no surprise.
It's much the same with the far right's political
How many seriously believe that Democrats favor
euthanasia? Relatively few.
But you can't beat something with nothing. Which
is why the Democrats' collective failure to develop a strong counter-narrative
remains so bewildering. Are they waiting for
what Eric Alterman calls the So Called Liberal Media to step up?
That's never going to happen. To cable TV, in
particular, politics is a carnival sideshow; they're peddling tickets.
Countering one falsehood at a time keeps Democrats
constantly on the defensive. People need to be told a competing story:
Who's deceiving them, and why. Take "death panels."
Who first concocted the lie?
Who pays her? Where does the money come from?
Describing the machinations of the right-wing
noise machine shouldn't simply be left to Internet media critics.
It should be an out-front political issue at
a national and local level.
Sure, they'll call it "class warfare."
They already do.
saw an item on the net re the people waiting in
line for free dental care...
800 or so per day were treated... people with
no insurance or not enough money to pay for standard
treatment from a dentist. this begs for further
comment but i am sure that anything i could say has already
been said or thought of. i instead will just
mention a couple of things that you may find interesting.
my wife needed to get all 4 of her wisdom teeth
pulled. the dentist recommended one tooth pulled
every two weeks. three came out fairly well...
one broke and had to be plucked out piece by piece.
details aside, the total cost was less than 200
usd... everything included.
i had a tooth with an old filling that was breaking
down... old fillings do this and usually have to be
replaced when this happens. my dentist, who works
in a very nice clinic with all the modern goodies,
recommended that the tooth should be crowned
and i agreed. he prepared the tooth that day and i
returned 10 days later to have the crown installed.
the workmanship was as good if not better than
the other crowns i currently have. the cost for
the crown... gold... was virtually half the cost of the
treatment. treatment with a stainless steel crown
would have been considerably less, but i opted
for gold. my total cost... about 300 usd.
Excerpt: Nancy Pelosi for the first time yesterday suggested
she may be backing off her support of the public option.
According to CNN, Pelosi and Harry Reid "said
they would support any provision that increases competition
and accessibility for health insurance - whether
or not it is the public option favored by most Democrats." When "asked if inclusion of a public option was
a non-negotiable demand - as her previous statements
had indicated Pelosi ruled out any non-negotiable
positions," according to CNN.

We're watching TV and suddenly Rusty the cat was mega-interested in
I looked closer and it was what we cal a CGI spider.
A CGI spider is a spider so big you figure it can't be real,
but there it was.
Like a super-hero, I bolted into action. I grabbed a TIME Magazine
It was tough getting Rusty to back off because for him, this was the
most exciting thing this month.
And yes, if I'd had more time I might've looked at other options but
the kill option won out
so I smacked the CGI spider and you'll never guess what happened next.
The spider was preggers and after I smacked her, 40-60 baby spiders
They were crawling in all directions like blood spatter.
This was now officially the most fun the cats ever had.
I kept pushing the spiders back towards the center while Mrs Bart grabbed
some bug spray.

I'm watching NBC's Poker After Dark, where they play some low, high
I'd guess the average pot is between $4K
so they spiced it up.
They started betting $50K
on every flop - would it be mostly black or mostly red?
There's a lot I don't know about poker, but I know poker is part skill,
and I know betting on the color of the flop is pure chance, so why
bet small on the skill
and then bet 15 times that on the pure luck?
Phil Ivey, the luckiest man alive, won $200K on four consecutive flops.
Is that God's way of telling them they need a cocaine habit?
Subject: the same corporate media
now adores Obama
I have yet to see prominent liberals notice that
the multinational corporate interests seem quite content to have Obama
For example, the biggest recipient of TARP money
is GE, whose NBC and MSNBC affiliates function as Obama cheerleaders.
In 2000, NBC was vicious in attacking Gore, and
I recall stories at the time about Jack Welch ordering his news division
to campaign for Bush.
Could it be that partisans on both sides are
being played for fools, and that Bush was the candidate of Big Business
and so is Obama?
I voted for Bush, but did so knowing he was a
When you voted for Obama, did you realize that
he was representing exactly the same elite financial interests?
If not, have you figured it out yet?
I can't find any other big time libs who have.

Excerpt: There's something loose in the land, an ugliness

Look back to Obama's speech Wednesday night and
racist Joe Wilson's crude "you lie" shout.
Witness the boorish behavior in the GOP seats.
They are an inspiration to Obama-haters.
It's not just those calling on God to harm the
president who cause worry; consider what comes with the territory.
The day after Anderson's "I Hate Barack Obama"

Excerpt: Joe Wilson yelled "You lie!" at a president
But, fair or not, what I heard was an unspoken
word in the air: You lie, boy!...
Iíve been loath to admit that the shrieking lunacy
of the summer - the frantic efforts to paint our first
black president as the Other, a foreigner, socialist,
fascist, Marxist, racist, Commie, Nazi; a cad who
would snuff old people; a snake who would indoctrinate
kids - had much to do with race.
I tended to agree with some Obama advisers that
Democratic presidents typically have provoked a frothing
response from paranoids - from Father Coughlin
against FDR to the vast right-wing conspiracy against Bill Clinton.
But Wilsonís shocking disrespect for the office
of the president - no Democrat ever shouted "liar" at W. when
he was hawking a fake case for war in Iraq -
convinced me: Some people just canít believe a black man is
president and will never accept it.
