Bachmann bought 4,000 votes?
She only got 4,800 or so...


The Ames poll, although important because people think Iowa counts, is nonbinding and unscientific.
AFP reported that "It has been criticized as playing too heavily in favor of candidates that are
well financed, since their campaigns can buy the $30 tickets for their supporters to attend and
presumably vote in their favor."
The Ames event was considered to be a Republican fundraiser, yet Bachmann's campaign
bought and "handed out at least 4,000 free tickets to supporters."
Therefore, Bachmann rigged the vote at a minimum direct cost of $120,000 to her campaign.

But why didn't the other guys buy more votes?

Obama found to have a pulse
He actually criticized the thieving bastards


Obama launched a rare direct attack Monday on the GOP presidential field,
criticizing them for their blanket opposition to any compromise involving new taxes.

"Think about that. I mean, that's just not common sense," Obama said
"You need to take a balanced approach," he said.

Obama made the comment after describing last week's GOP presidential debate
when all eight of the candidates said they would refuse to support a deal with
tax increases, even if tax revenues were outweighed 10-to-1 by spending cuts.

Well, I guess you could call that criticism.

He still wants to be Mr. Nice Guy, instead of Mr. Effective.

In 2008, he wanted to be president so f-ing bad.
Now he's in the White House - and he refuses to come to work.

Bart, Tiger is just like Sampson.

When Delilah cut off his hair, he lost his strength.
When the media, and others cut off Tiger’s access to girls, he lost his game.

Just saying, he is thinking about the sex, instead of the golf-swing.

Poor Eldrick - it's so sad...

The Texas Unmiracle
Perry thinks God will save us


Rick Perry is running for president. And we know what his campaign will be about: faith in miracles.

Some of these miracles will involve things that you’re liable to read in the Bible. But if he wins the
Republican nomination, his campaign will probably center on a more secular theme: the alleged
economic miracle in Texas, which, it’s often asserted, sailed through the Great Recession almost
unscathed thanks to conservative economic policies. And Mr. Perry will claim that he can restore
prosperity to America by applying the same policies at a national level.

Isn't that what Bush promised?

In 2001, his harshest critics said he was going to "Enron America," but that didn't happen.
Turns out Bush "Enronned" the whole f-ing world and we'll paying for that for decades.

So when Perry says he knows how to create jobs, don’t believe him.  His prescriptions for job creation
would work about as well in practice as his prayer-based attempt to end Texas’s crippling drought. 

It's funny when you read a history book and read about ancient cultures who worshipped the sun
and tribal cultures who sacrificed virgins to volcanoes, you think, "How could they be so primitive?"

Yet that's America in 2011.
We throw science and logic to the f-ing wind and we pray to a being who doesn't exist.

If only there was some pushback from the Left - but we're too afraid to confront the bully.

Subject: Isn't it sad...
Isn't it sad that a Democrat leaning site needs a corner to support the Democrat POTUS?

Since Tally is (perhaps) Obama's last defender, I offered her a regular column to speak up for him.

Do we have a Democratic POTUS??   Coulda fooled me.

The way I see it, when Obama strikes out to end the game, some people want me to write,
 "Obama wins game with dramatic 9th-inning Grand Slam."

When Obama fumbles the ball to give the GOP another victory,
some people want me to write,
"Obama sets new touchdown record in dramatic 4th-quarter victory."

What game are you watching where Obama is winning?
What is there about a 39% approval rating that spells "Victory!"

I wish was in the business of selling t-shirts and jackets and bumper stickers that said,
"Obama, best president ever," but if I bought into that franchise I could sell one to Tally
and ...surely someone else would buy one, but that wouldn't even pay the printer's costs.

It's as tho one of us is looking at the facts and commenting on reality,
while others have their fingers in their ears chanting. "La la la la - I can't hear you!"

I hope Obama doesn't end up "Winning!" like Charlie Sheen.

Rick Perry: Tax the Poor


"We're dismayed at the injustice that nearly half of all Americans don't even pay any income tax."
     -Texas Gov. Rick Perry, presidential announcement speech, Aug. 13, 2011.

Really? Of all the ills in the world, of all the problems with the economy, all the difficulties with
the tax code, this is the one that Perry chooses to lament?
Perry's statement conjures visions of America as Slacker Nation, where the overburdened wagon-pullers
drag an increasingly heavy burden of freeloaders. His number is correct but, like other conservatives who
have seized on the statistic, Perry draws from it a dangerously misleading lesson.
Forty six percent of households will owe no federal income tax in 2011. This is, for the most part,
not because people have chosen to loaf. It's because they are working but simply don't earn enough
to owe income taxes.
As the Tax Policy Center's Roberton Williams explains, "a couple with two children earning less
than $26,400 will pay no federal income tax this year because their $11,600 standard deduction
and four exemptions of $3,700 each reduce their taxable income to zero. The basic structure of
the income tax simply exempts subsistence levels of income from tax."
Does Perry truly see this as an "injustice"?
Does he believe his "dismay" should be alleviated by raising the tax burden on these households?

This is the basic philosophy of the religiously-insane Right:
'God provided for me - if he's not providing for them, fuck 'em."

Religious insanity rules America - and has since January 20, 2001.

Obama is unable/unwilling to speak up for science and logic (or Democratic values)
so America continues to fester in this hellhole of insanity.

Bart, why do you post pix of Angie Harmon
who happens to be a republican bush-loving loon?

Sara, you're right about that.

She's so crazy, she said, "Dennis Miller for President" but that
was before her god Rick Perry threw his neo-swastika in the ring.

Truth is, I'm using her pictures to make money.

The teenage boys who might click all 670 pages of her gallery don't care if
she's a flaming Nazi gasbag - they just want to see more pictures of her.

So, I'm using her the way Republicans use the religiously-insane.

Perry's Revisionist History
   by Steve Benen


Rick Perry has some creative spin on S&P’s downgrade of the U.S. credit rating: turns out Obama did it.
Perry places the blame for the downgrade squarely on the shoulders of Obama.

As the buffoonish governor sees it, “the president’s refusal to control spending” led to the downgrade.
Perry may believe this, but if he does, it reinforces fears he wasn’t burdened with an overabundance of intelligence.

There’s no great mystery as to how and why S&P arrived at its conclusion: congressional Republican expressed
skepticism about the serious consequences of a credit default; they undermined confidence in the American political
system; refused to compromise; they ruled out additional revenue; and they deliberately played a radical game with
the credit of the United States. S&P didn’t leave much doubt about which side of the aisle the agency considers responsible.

This needs to be said:
Anyone who blames "both sides" is a fucking idiot.

When the fox eats the chicken, do we blame both sides?
When Hitler invaded Poland, did we blame both sides?
When a Republican molests a child, do we blame both sides?
When one side refuses to compromise in a negotiation, do we blame both sides?

America is broke because the super-rich pay no taxes.
America is broke because our wealthiest corporations pay no taxes.

Pretty soon, the GOP will be telling our disabled soldiers, "
We frankly don’t have the money."

Whoops - turns out that's already happened

Romney's dog-on-the-roof debacle
He tied their dog to the roof of their car


It may sound like a scene from "National Lampoon." Mom and Dad pack their station wagon,
load the luggage into the back, strap the dog to the top of the car and begin the annual family road trip.

Wait: Strap the dog to the top of the car?

"Before beginning the drive, Mitt Romney put Seamus, the family's hulking Irish setter, in a dog carrier
and attached it to the station wagon's roof rack. He'd built a windshield for the carrier, to make the ride
more comfortable for the dog," read the article.

The worst part?
Romney told this story himself - he thought it was cute.
He used to tell this story to make him appear "normal."

What's funnier (or sadder) than a Rethug trying to appear normal?

Subject: Can Perry win?

Hi Bart,

Perry may very well be unelectable in the eyes of demonstrably gullible voters BUT,
(a very large but)   Duh-bya didn't "win", he was installed.

Will we be stupid enough to accept another Texas Gubner installed like W?

The GOPers have yet another mess in their candidate pool.  Captain (magic) Underpants
may be the sane one in the bunch, but nobody, especially evangelicals would vote for him. 

Perry, Bachmann, et al have proven their nutjob credentials with the last "debate",  so we know
they are pure enough for the nutjobs, but are they capable of getting within 10 percentage points
so that Slappy, Scalia, and Roberts can twist arms for another W "decision"?

I doubt it, Obama looks better than the Trix Rabbit, and better than
Koo Koo for coco puffs, however, will he win by double digits?


America's acceptance of their vote being stolen in 2000 might've sent the SOBs
the signal that stealing the White House was a lot easier than they thought it would be.

We know our Democrats - "We don't want any trouble..."

"People invest to make money, and potential taxes have never scared them off,   I have worked with
  investors for 60 years and I have yet to see anyone -- not even when capital gains rates were 39.9
  percent in 1976-77 -- shy away from a sensible investment because of the tax rate on the potential gain,
  I would note that a net of nearly 40 million jobs were added between 1980 and 2000. You know what's
  happened since then: lower tax rates and far lower job creation,"

Subject: Obama skips Wisconsin on his Midwest bus tour

Hi Bart:

First, let me say, keep up the good work Bart!   I LOVE your site! 

Obama is on his Midwest Bus Tour, but apparently that tour does not include Wisconsin. 
Gee, I wonder why he's skipping Wisconsin???  Keep up the tradition is my guess.
I have heard NOTHING about his skipping Wisconsin in the media.

I do not see a candidate anywhere that I can support.  I was a strong Wes Clark
supporter in 2004 and 2008.  Obama SHIT on Wes Clark, and I never forgot that.

And yes, I too miss Clinton :(

What is last issue's History Mystery?

Hiya Bart, the Jim Crow image in minstrel shows, Old Black Joe, Uncle Tom, Uncle Remus,
and later Amos and Andy were once extremely popular among whites and in many places still
are considered humorous.  So at the turn of the 20th century “funny” ads like this worked. 

Attached are two more ads that Bull Duram produced.

 Another Perespective

Not much shocks me these days, but these ads do.

F-ing Whitey - he'll beat a slave who he catches reading a book,
then mock him for not knowing proper English and sentence contruction.

THIS is why Perry announced in South Carolina - the same reason Reagan
announced in
Philadelphia, Mississippi to send the signal that he's not one
of those liberal Boston faggots who think niggers are actually human.

No, Rick Perry's a big he-man Texan who knows a niggers' place.
If we vote for Perry maybe he'll find a way to send them back to Africa.

Hey, a racist can hope, right?
