Excerpt: The Republican fratricide in the November 3 special
election in upstate New York may prove just an opening round
of an even more spectacular bloodbath in Florida
in 2010. In New York, Republican feuding lost the party a House seat.
At stake in Florida is not only a senatorship
-- but very possibly Republican hopes for 2012 as well.
The battle in Florida pits Gov. Charlie Crist
against birther-handjob Marco Rubio. Both men claim to be conservative,
pro-life, tax cutters. On the issues, they would
seem to agree far more than they disagree. But they have disagreed on
Obama's fiscal stimulus. Squeezed by his state's
desperate fiscal condition, Crist endorsed and campaigned for the
Obama stimulus. Inspired by his conservative
ideology, Rubio opposed stimulus.
Now Rubio is the darling of conservatives nationwide.
Just this week it was announced that he would give the keynote
address at next year's annual Conservative Political
Handjob Conference in Washington. He has been profiled on the
cover of National Review, endorsed by the Club
for Growth, and feted by radio talk show hosts.
So Florida will be a rerun of NY-23.
The Palins, Becks and Pigboys will attack Crist
for not being Nazi enough.
In football, when the defense jumps offside, the
offense geta a free play. This is like that.
The Democrat, whoever he/she is, will win Florida's
goober election in 2010.

Excerpt For the second time in just over a week, Fox
News has been caught misusing old news footage.
The latest flap is leading some people to charge
that the cable news network is intentionally misleading
its audience, while Fox claims, with a straight
face, a "production error."
Wednesday's incident occurred when Fox News whore
Gregg Jarrett mentioned that a Sarah Palin book signing
in Grand Rapids, Michigan had a massive turnout.
As footage rolled of goober Palin amidst a throng of fans, Jarrett noted
that she is "continuing to draw huge crowds while
she's promoting her brand-new book,'' adding that the images being shown
were "some of the pictures just coming in to
us.... The lines earlier had formed this morning."
In truth, the video used in the segment was from
a 2008 McCain/Palin campaign rally.
My question is - what's changed?
FOX has been lying their asses off for years and nobody ever said anything
Now, other whore media outlets are beginning to call their lies - so
Was it Team Obama calling attention to their whoreness?
When most pundits said it was wrong to take on FOX, I said it
was the right move.
Fighting back and listing the facts are almost always winners.

of which would hire Palin to make an editorial judgment but both of which would be thrilled to see her as president.

Have you noticed how few "intellectuals" there
are in the Republican Party? Seriously, they are a bunch of rednecks,
skinheads, racists, mysoginists, and uneducated
simpletons. And, like Beck and Limbaugh, they are too stupid
to realize it.
Their IQ hovers around their belt size.
It blows me away how really moronic they are. These are on the lower

They will never change.

Excerpt: During a debate on the House floor today over
designating 21 miles of the Molalla River as “wild and scenic,”
Rep. Virginia Foxx (R-NC), who opposes the legislation,
tried to claim a progressive environmental record for her party.
“Actually, the GOP has been the leader in starting
good environmental programs in this country,” said Foxx.
Foxx then extended her claims of the GOP’s progressive
history to the issue of civil rights. “Just as we were the people
who passed the civil rights bills back in the
’60s without very much help from our colleagues across the aisle,” said
“They love to engage in revisionist history.”
When Foxx finally yielded her time on the floor, Rep. Dennis Cardoza (D-CA)
passionately rebuked her:
CARDOZA: Today, what I’m hearing on the floor
really takes the cake. The gentlelady from North Carolina, in her
statement just now, indicated that the Republican
GOP had passed the Civil Rights Act legislation with almost no help
from the Democrats. I can’t believe my ears.
It was the Kennedy and Johnson administration where we passed that
Great Society legislation. It was over the objections
of people like Jesse Helms from the gentlewoman’s state that
we passed that civil rights legislation. John
FOXX: Would, would the gentleman yield?
CARDOZA: No, I will not yield. John Lewis, a member
of this House, was beaten on the Edmund Pettus bridge
to get that civil rights legislation passed.
Tell John Lewis that he wasn’t part of getting that legislation passed.
When she was given a chance to respond, Foxx could
only say that Jesse Helms wasn’t elected to the Senate until 1972.

strategy and said that any troop increase should wait until a firm endgame
