Excerpt: Kimberly Munley, the civilian police officer
who confronted and shot the Fort Hood gunman, is being hailed as a hero.
The base's top commander, Lieutenant General
Bob Cone, credited her with stopping the shooting rampage that killed
13 people despite being wounded herself.
Munley and her partner responded within three
minutes of reported gunfire on Thursday afternoon.
Munley had been directing traffic moments before
she confronted the gunman, reports the New York Daily News.
A doctor said earlier that Munley had a gunshot
wound that had hit an artery.
"She happened to encounter the gunman. In an exchange
of gunfire, she was wounded but managed to wound him four times,"
Cone said. "It was an amazing and aggressive
performance by this police officer."

How many lives did she save by dropping the shooter?

Excerpt: Kimberly Munley is being honored as the hero
she is, having risked her life, doing the job she was trained to do, and
countless lives in the process. But its worth
remembering as conservatives oppose the health care bill, that 20 years
ago they opposed someone like Kimberly Munley
being able to do the job she is now being honored for.
As the congress gets closer to passing health
care reform and as Republicans and conservatives ramp up their opposition
predictions of doom and gloom in their opposition,
its a good idea to remind ourselves of how wrong Republicans have proved
to be about everything over the past 25 years.
And Kimberly Munley is only the latest shinning example.
The incident at Ft. Hood and the heroism of Kimberly
Munley reminds us that 20 years ago conservatives were telling us that women couldn't do the same jobs men could.
And they shouldn't even be allowed to try.
As Munley is being honored for her heroism, returning
fire after being shot herself, and taking down Nadal Hasan, putting an
to his killing spree, we should remind
ourselves that conservatives opposed women becoming police officers,
they opposed women in combat roles in the military, they
opposed the removing of any institutionalized barriers that separated men and women in terms of opportunity, authority,
and ability. And they did it because
they said women just were not equipped to do the job. They told us where a woman's

economy grew in the quarter that ended in September, driven largely
by federal stimulus. But government spending,

Unemployment surged from 9.8 percent in September
to 10.2 percent last month, its highest level since 1983.
And who was president the last time the economy
crashed? Saint Reagan.
It's always the Republican who crashes the
economy, but the Democrats refuse to list the facts.
Why can't we get a Democrat to list the damn facts
so the ignorant voters can learn?
At the same time, the economy lost 190,000 more
jobs. That means employers have eliminated
7.3 million positions since the recession began
in December 2007.
Taken together, the numbers paint this stark picture:
At no time in post-World War II America has it been
more difficult to find a job, to plan for the
future, or - for tens of millions of Americans - to merely get by.
Obama says "bold, innovative action," would be
needed - from the administration, Congress and the private sector
- to undo the devastation in the labor market.
Americans are waiting for Mr. Obama to lead the way.
Excerpt: Unless your spacecraft just landed last week,
I’m guessing that you’re familiar by now with the new order of things over
NBC’s 10pm time slot. In an attempt to
focus solely on cost effectiveness, the network has tossed any attempt
at real programming
for the archaic comedy of one Jay Leno.
Not that NBC has had much to speak of in recent years in the entertainment
but this clear and admitted tactic of filling
prime time with cheap product, ratings be damned, spells out a dicey situation
not just for
televised entertainment but for this country
as a whole. To put it succinctly, Jay Leno is bad for America.
This is a purely suburban example I know, but
seeing Jay Leno on week nights at 10pm is sort of like when the big fancy
in your town starts sliding downhill and the
Foot Lockers and Banana Republics are replaced by 99 cent stores and party
warehouses. Sure it’s still technically
a mall, but only the dregs still go there. The only reason it stays
afloat is because the inventory
was purchased at last weeks swap meet for a biscuit
under thirty bucks. NBC has become the once fancy mall that replaced
carpet with linoleum and sells its cheap plastic
wares under blinding florescent lights. Quality was sacrificed in
the name of margin.
Jay Leno at 10pm is not entertainment, Jay Leno
at 10pm is borrowed time waiting for a land developer to turn him into
Subject: Re: So how does killing
the front-runner's momentum make Palin a winner?
Palin can be a loser and a winner all at the same
time, it just depends on your perspective.
From the Democratic side of the fence, she was
no doubt a loser with the chaos she caused.
But look at what she accomplished from the movement
conservative perspective ...
She got what they would call a RINO (Republican
In Name Only), that was selected by the local GOP machine,
booted out of the election and she moved the
party towards more ideologically pure (nutso) candidates.
It doesn't matter that the RINO probably would
have won the election. Now even though she lost, she's helping
shape the Republican party in her image (isn't
that a scary thought?). I'm hoping she has more success, as I believe
that will continue to turn what is left of the
Republican Party into the regional rump it deserves to be.
The movement conservatives and fire breathing
progressives/liberals have one thing in common,
they'd rather lose an election, than help a non
pure candidate win.

Excerpt: NY-23 was a damaging setback for the hard right.
Hoffman had the energetic support of Sarah Palin, Glenn Beck,
Rush Limbaugh and the Fox bastards as well as
big bucks from their political auxiliaries. Furthermore, Hoffman was
running not only in a district that Rove described
as "very Republican" but one that fits the demographics of the incredibly
shrinking G.O.P. The 23rd is far whiter than
America as a whole - 93 percent versus 74. It’s rural. Its income and education
levels are below the norm. Only if the district
were situated in Dixie - or Utah - could it be a more perfect fit for the
American demographic where the McCain-Palin ticket
had its sole romps last year.
If the teabagging right can’t win there, imagine
how it might fare in the nation where most Americans live.
Some G.O.P. leaders have started to notice. Mitt
Romney didn’t endorse Hoffman despite right-wing badgering to do so.
On Wednesday, Michael Tom Steele dismissed the
right’s mantra that somehow Hoffman’s loss could be called a victory
and instead talked up the newly elected Republican
governors who won by appealing to independents and moderates.
Chris Christie and Bob McDonnell are plenty conservative,
but both had rejected Palin’s offers to campaign for them.
They also avoided the teabag zanies, the fear-mongering
National Organization for Marriage and the anti-abortion-rights
zealots Hoffman embraced. They positioned themselves
as respectful Obama critics, not haters likening him to Hitler.
In the aftermath of this clear-cut demonstration
of how Republicans can win, the revolutionaries are still pledging to
purge the party’s moderates by rallying behind
more Hoffmans in G.O.P. primaries from Florida to California.
And they may get some scalps. But Tuesday’s loss
revealed that they’re better at luring freak-show gawkers into
Fox’s tent than voters into the G.O.P.’s. As
if to prove the point, protesters hoisted a sign likening health care reform
to Dachau at the raucous tea party rally convened
by Michele Bachmann on Capitol Hill on Thursday.
So what will happen when thre teabagging handjobs have total control
of the GOP?
Excerpt: Dave Weigel reports that the conservative Committee
for Justice is complaining in the aftermath of the nomination of one Latino
and one African American to the federal bench,
that President Obama's judicial nominees aren't diverse enough because
aren't enough southern white men among them.
'Does President Obama or his advisors believe
that southern white men are likely to be bigoted, making them unfit to
the second most powerful court in the land? We
hope not and readily concede that it is difficult to know if any such stereotype
lurks in the White House. The absence of southern
white male circuit nominees could, instead, be an innocent coincidence
the not-so-innocent byproduct of a judicial selection
process dominated by racial and gender preferences.'
The white man just can't make it in Obama's America.
Excerpt: The favorite mantra of the tea baggers is that
the public option will add to the deficit. They say it even though the
has scored 4 of the 5 health care bills and said
they would acutally reduce deficit. Needless to say the news media,
especially CNN seems to give equal weight to
the estimates of the CBO and tea party protestors wearing
"Obama Sucks" t-shirts. So we can add the
news media to the dumb category also.
And if that wasnt enough stupidity to go around,
at what might well be called a Stupidity Rally, John Boehner waved
a document that he said was the constitution
and told the assembled tea partiers that he stood with the constitution.
Waving the document aloft he yelled into
his microphone with the legislatively psychotic Virginia Foxx nodding behind
that he "stood behind the words of the constitution"
that " we hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created
equal and that they are endowed by their creator
with certain unalienable rights including life, liberty and the pursuit
And the crowd went wild.
The problem is those words are not in the constitution.
They are in the Declaration of Independence.
So like most Republicans and tea party protestors,
Boehner has spent as much time reading the constitution
and knowing what's in it as he did the health
care bill. And his knowledge of what's in both is about the same

Hillary wouldn't be playing all the post-partisan crap, and letting the
Dems decide everything. Obama is
close to losing my support, for all the obvious reasons. I live in a state
where that won't
matter (SD), and I've already stopped voting
for Herseth Sandlin, one of those worthless Blue Dogs. I figure now I either
quit voting altogether, or my wife and I move
across the border to IA where it might make a difference!
Obama either needs to wake up, clear out some
of the corporatist jerks advising him, or he is going to go down big time.
It will turn my stomach to see the Republicans
latch onto the angry populist sentiment out there, since they mastered
of the corporation, by the corporation, and for
the corporation. (replace that with wealthy if you like)
But people are really pissed off, they're getting
squeezed, and times are tough. Bankers and big investors are bailed out,
and making off with billions, while the little
people are trying to find a place to live and a way to buy groceries.
I could go on all day, but I guess that's your
job...I'd better get going on mine.
Don't take it easy on Obama, not that you would....
I think he must be totally disconnected from
what life is like for ordinary people.
Bill and Hillary Clinton understood this, and
never forgot even after they joined the jet-set lifestyle.
There's no point in speculating how Hillary would've been as president.
