"Neoconservatism might be summed up as, 'somewhere, shaggy kids might be having
sex or smoking dope - so let’s cut interest
rates and invade Iraq!'",
-- Daniel McCarthy, senior editor
of The American
It's always confusing when a Rethug tells the truth.
Excerpt: If history had taken a different course, Doug
Holtz-Eakin would be inside the McCain White House driving McCain's
domestic agenda, including health-care reform.
But now, Holtz-Eakin, who was McCain's senior health care advisor
remains unemployed -- and his health coverage
is running out.
Holtz-Eakin, 51, is shopping for insurance. And
he has a "preexisting condition" that insurance bastards use to deny coverage.
Holtz-Eakin said he's been paying about $1,000
a month to extend the private health insurance he received on McCain's
through the government's COBRA program, but that
will expire in a few months. This is the first time in his life he has
employer-provided health coverage. "I worry about
where I go next in the way many Americans do," he said."
See how they are?
The GOP is all "Fuck you, I got mine, go get
yours," until they don't have theirs.
Excerpt: Says Everett Wilkinson, a tea-bagging handjob
in Florida: "We are not going to allow our teabagging movement to be stolen
by the GOP or by any political party."
This energy on the right seems to exist outside the control of the conventional
structure, and GOP politicians and operatives
are as likely to be victims of this anger as beneficiaries.
GOP leaders are about to learn the lesson again,
several conservatives warned.
Grass-roots activists are ready to turn their
fire on Republicans in a host of races across the country, said Adam Brandon,
a spokesman for FreedomWorks, an organization
of handjobs that helped gin up the teabagger protests and town hall flare-ups.
“If you look at other bellwether races, we’re
still going to be on opposing sides,” said Brandon, who pointed to the
Senate race, where the hyper-handjobs are
targeting GOP Gov. Charlie Crist as the next Glenn beck victim.
This is getting good - and funny.
Yes, run your Glenn Beck clones in every race.
Set your hair on fire and start screaming.
Orzo in Baltimore wrote in to say, "Obama ran
on an anti-war platform"
Is this statement 100% true? Nope. As I recall
Obama waffled on this issue.
He was not an anti-war candidate.
You can ask my old Eisenhower Republican Dad.
I told people Obama was a conservative in the
manner of Bill Clinton.
Despite what Rush has to say, the Democratic
Party is not a party of liberals.
They are just more liberal than the Republicans.
I'm a liberal and I will take what I can get.

During the campaign, Obama wanted out of Iraq
so he could concentrate on Afghanistan.
Not sure if that was the right move then but
I think it's the wrong move now.
How do you get 50 goat-herding tribes to get along?
And if al Qaeda is in Pakistan, who are we fighting in Afghanistan?
Excerpt It still surprises me when I hear skeptics claim
there is no evidence that we're causing global warming.
The evidence is there in the peer reviewed literature.
What they're really saying is they haven't bothered to look.
So to make things easier for everyone, here is
the evidence that humans are causing global warming.
It's not based on theory, climate models, faith
or political ideology but on direct, empirical observations.
The line of evidence is as follows:
Subject: Re: CO2 + Warming
There's a good piece on the media-matter site
about the Fox News
'temperatures have been declining steadily for
last 11 years' lie.
(Hannity's in there too - hmmmm Hannity, Fux-News
- seems like the word 'lie' was kind of redundant).
Excerpt: It is another element of the Palin risk-taking
temperament and anarchicness - she might rightly be described as
the nation’s first major anarcho-conservative
politician - that she built this domestic-political fantasy around
somebody her family undoubtedly had reason to
believe was uncontrollable.
Or perhaps they didn’t. Maybe they saw him just
for what he obviously was, some stupid, minor, local doofus,
and missed the more salient point that he was
a stupid, minor, local doofus who got the joke about himself.
Of course, it may not even be Levi who got the
joke. He’s surrounded now by retinues
of handlers and
publicity strategists who are marketing the irony
that is Levi - although, to be fair, such retinues
not known for their sense of humor, and this
Levi rollout is riotous.
How far will Sarah Palin ultimately go?
How big might Levi Johnston get?
I don’t think at this point it’s quite possible
to say who, in terms of
American archetypes and media success, will come
And again, this time relating to the special election
in NY 23.
Please don't get me wrong, dude, I thoroughly
enjoy your site and am in complete
amazement that you live in OK, but can you explain
the love/hate relationship with Arianna?
I have no idea what Arianna stands for besides more money and power
and fame for herself.
She started out, like Kos, as a Rethug, then switched to our side for
Then she decided California didn't need democracy when she helped overthrow

It was fine with me if people preferred Obama to Hillary, but then they
Certain Clinton-haters - Arianna, consortiumnews.com, Randi Rhodes,
Ed Schultz, Kos - found it
close to impossible to stick to the facts - and then they started that
They turned into little Ken Starrs, yapping about "Mena airport" and
and the dozens of political enemies that the Clintons had murdered.
I had never seen such unwarranted ugliness from our side.
I, on the other hand, questioned Obama's lack of experience and willingness
proving that it was EASY to take the high road when it came to Democratic
...and to make things worse, they STILL lie about the Clintons every
chance they get.
They won, but the Clintons are still breathing so they're still angry.
That's a stupid way to treat our only double winner in 60 years.
Subject: Huffpo redux!
I am somewhat confused. You first reference
the "wehateclintons" web site in an article relating to the JFK assassination.
In my way of thinking, "wehateclintons" is a
derogatory comment about that web site.
You got that right.
Then, a few inches down, you talk about McChrystal's
Tillman Story, with a link to..."wehateclintons", except there is no reference
So my questions are, is Huffpo bad when needed,
but also good when needed? Is there an inconsistency there?
If so, does it matter?
Paul in Boca
Paul, Arianna hates the Clintons like I hate the Bush bastards so I
don't trust her.
Yes, they often have great articles on Huffpo and we link to them a
But after the lies she/they told, how can anyone trust them?
You should check out "Real Enemies: Conspiracy
Theories and American Democracy, World War I to 9/11" by Kathryn S. Olmstead. LBJ was a conspiracy
theorist when it came to the assassination. He thought it was
payback from Castro, but he didn't dare dig into
it. If he did, he was certain he'd find evidence it was true,
and that would end up causing a nuclear showdown
"Republican Dede Scozzafava, who dropped out
of the race Saturday after right-wing Republican titans backed Doug Hoffman, has endorsed the
Democrat in the race, Bill Owens...Scozzafava is just one more Republican woman who's seen her party
reject her; Palin and her right-wing friends seem determined to make sure the GOP is small enough
to hold NaziCon 2012 in the Wasilla Sports Complex."

"The GOP is telling every moderate Republican
across the country is that it doesn’t matter if you’ve been a loyal Republican for decades, it
doesn’t matter if you know the district and the people, it doesn’t matter
if you fit the district, and it doesn’t
matter that you have given decades to the party. It just doesn’t matter. If the teabagging wingnuts and the
shrieking lunatics like Michelle Malkin don’t like you, high profile crackpots like Palin and Dick Armey are going
to swoop in and back some clown who doesn’t even live in the district and then shit all over the area’s voters,
telling them their interests are 'parochial.'"

When I see Joe Lieberman I can't help but to look
to see if there is egg yoke or chicken pinfeathers stuck around his mouth.
He reminds me of the most despised creature on
the farm, an egg-sucking dog.
Johnny Cash, several years recorded a song about
egg-sucking dogs. After being given food, a home, and allowed to
in exchange for warning you about four and two-legged
varmints sneaking around the farm the egg-sucking dog would himself
sneak into the henhouse and suck eggs and kill
chickens. The eggs he sucked and chickens killed were more valuable
than the dog.
Theys were sneaky but they couldn't always wipe
the egg-yoke or the pinfeathers from their muzzle after a trip to the henhouse.
Lieberman always looks like he's been to the
henhouse and still has the evidence on his mouth while trying to convince
you that he's a good dog.

I truly believe that this is brought on by what
I call the Minority Thought Pattern, which is the total disdain

As I recall, Griese's comment was that NASCAR
driver Juan Pablo Montoya was not at a publicity event
because he was out having a taco.
How well did Griese know Montoya? Was he referring to Montoya's
recent tweet that he went out to a Mexican restaurant
with his wife for lunch, and the tacos were good?
Did he have some inside information about
where Montoya was? Would it have been better if Griese had
Montoya was out having a pizza, or a steak (at
Griese's restaurant)? Montoya's from Colombia, which is generally
sterotyped as a cocaine source; what if Griese
had said "he's out having a toot"? I guess it's just harder
for me to
see racism than many other people, maybe
I'm already not racist and don't need to look for racism everywhere
In the original story I read, it said, "Montoya,
who's from Columbia..." but certainly his nationality
wasn't mentioned in the broadcast, so why would anyone make the leap
And let's remember, this hyper-sensitivity started (in my opinion) when
Jimmy The Greek said
"the slave owner would breed his big black
to his big woman so that he could have a big black kid," and that cost him his career.
Seems to me this is crying "Wolf" where no wolf exists.
On the other hand, if Griese's "overt Rethug racism" is known to everyone
then I could be wrong, but barring that, there was no reason for ESPN
to suspend him.
Rush, on the other hand, doesn't make accidental racist comments.
He gets paid $40M a year to be a racist prick without using the N-word.
