Severe Conservative Syndrome 
 by Paul Krugman


Mitt Romney has a gift for words - self-destructive words. On Friday he did it again,
telling the CPAC Nazis that he was a "severely conservative governor."
As Molly Ball of The Atlantic pointed out, Mr. Romney "described conservatism as if it were a disease."
Indeed. Mark Liberman, a linguistics professor at the University of Pennsylvania, provided a list of words
that most commonly follow the adverb "severely"; the top five, in frequency of use, are disabled, depressed, ill, limited and injured.
That's clearly not what Mr. Romney meant to convey. Yet if you look at the GOP race,
you have to wonder whether it was a Freudian slip. For something has clearly gone very wrong
with modern American conservatism.

They keep saying Willard and Obama are tied.
I don't believe that for s second.

I think the whore press wants you to THINK they're tied
so you'll tune in more often and get "the latest scoop."

Willard hasn't had a gaffe-free day in months and Obama keeps on sailing smoothly.

24 Hours to Stop the Pipeline
 by Robert Redford


Every once in a while an opportunity comes along for all of us to be the solution. This is one of those times.
We're collecting a half million messages to stop the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline in the next 24 hours.
This dirty, dangerous tar sands pipeline is not in the national interest. It's that simple. And the Senate,
officials of both parties, need to hear that message loud and clear and fast because some of them are
threatening to push a bill as soon as Tuesday, to approve it.
Go to and send a message. Then turn up the volume and send it to everyone you know.
Tweet it, Facebook it, blog it...urging everyone you know to become part of the solution in the next 24 hours.
Go to, please, and send a message.
This U.S. Senate has to stop looking towards the past and move into the new century.
If only some of these politicians showed the same level of passion for creating new markets
around cleaner forms of energy, as they're showing for crippling a sitting president with a dirty,
potentially highly dangerous, old-school Canadian tar sands pipeline.

Subject: Have you lost your fu*king mind?

I'm sorry but I have a bone to pick with you.
You and I have 'gotten' in to it before, some months ago.

<>You gave me the red ass for what I said to you concerning your discord for "liberals."
I told you I felt offended because you painted all liberals with a pretty broad brush.
I took exception w/that.

Now in your last page you again are painting democrats in a bad light.
Can I ask you something, what exactly do you classify 'yourself' as????
I'm confused.

Usually I enjoy your page, but sometimes you are quite frustrating!
My husband loves your page, and it's a must read every day.
He has sent you posts before and thinks you're wonderful.
He loves Tequila now too, thanks in part to you.

Like I said, I'm kinda annoyed with you right now.
But I do hope you're feeling alright and Mrs. Bart is well too.

Now, stop annoying me!
p.s. My birthday is on the 18th so we have decided to send you a little something!

A liberal, a democrat, butt mostly a progressive!

If you send me a donation, you can call me anything you want.

I am a Democrat who fights back - not many of those around.

Many Democrats, (I assume to my Left) say things like "Fighting is always wrong."

Truth is, fighting is OFTEN wrong, maybe even usually wrong.

Subject: Strange Compromise on Contraception

President Obama made a weird compromise on birth control coverage.
Under his plan all women will have contraceptive coverage regardless of religion.

However to create the illusion of religious freedom Catholics won't have to pay for
their birth control coverage. Those costs will shift to non-Catholics who will have to
pay for Catholic birth control through higher premiums. Atheists will have to pay for
Catholics who sin. I suppose the good side is that we won't have to pay as much in
taxes to pay to raise their kids that they can't support.

Bart, you wrote:

Nope I did not say that.

Sure you did.
You just don't understand what words mean.

I accused your drug and booze addled inbred brain of being in love with the word Nigger.

That would be illogical - falling in love with a word.
I'm listing the facts and YOU think I should candy-coat what racists say.
I refuse.

The Governor of Arizona did NOT call Obama a Nigger....

You know for a fact that she didn't?

Maybe she didn't right there with Obama standing a foot away,
but I know how racists talk when there are no mics or cameras around.
To suggest racist Republicans DON'T use that word is illogical.

Trouble for Benny the Rat
Bishops are into mutiny, they say


Call it Conspiracy City. Call it Scandal City. Call it Leak City.
These days the holy city has been in the news for anything but holy reasons.

"It is a total mess," said one high-ranking Vatican official who spoke off the record.

The Machiavellian maneuvering and machinations that have come to light in the Vatican
recently are worthy of a novel about a sinister power struggle at a medieval court.

Senior church officials interviewed this month said almost daily embarrassments that have
put the Vatican on the defensive could force Pope Benedict to act to clean up the image of
its administration - at a time when the church faces a deeper crisis of authority and relevance
in the wider world.

Some of those sources said the outcome of a power struggle inside the Holy See may even
have a longer-term effect, on the choice of the man to succeed Benedict when he dies.

From leaked letters by an archbishop who was transferred after he blew the whistle on
what he saw as a web of corruption and cronyism, to a leaked poison pen memo which
puts a number of cardinals in a bad light, to new suspicions about its bank, Vatican
spokesmen have had their work cut out responding.

Hey Benny, don't feel too bad.
If anyone believes that wild, ficticious Bible, God once had a mutiny, too.

Of course, they didn't say why God couldn't see the mutiny coming and never-you-mind
asking a bunch of pesky questions about the Texas-sized loopholes in their nutty stories.

Open Letter to George Soros
by Carolyn Kay


Mr. Soros:

I know from your past commitments to organizations promoting freedom in Eastern Europe
that democracy is very important to you.

And on Fareed Zakaria’s “GPS” today, you said that the Supreme Court’s decision on the Citizens United case,
which allows unlimited donations to supposedly uncoordinated efforts to elect candidates, will create
“an unlevel playing field that will further destroy the political system.” You said that you’re distressed
by this decision, but haven’t yet decided how you will respond to it.

May I make a suggestion?

I wish you would make the same kind of commitment that you made in Eastern Europe to a movement
to overturn Citizens United by way of a constitutional amendment. Nothing in our broken system can be
mended until we substantially reduce the subservience of our political leaders to big money. Also, the
movement could start a real debate in every state, and nationwide, on what we citizens want from our
government and how we should go about getting it.

But please don’t just hire the usual suspects to do this for you. I’m tired of seeing the same old tired
organizations getting money to do the same old tired things that haven’t worked in the past to improve
democracy in America.

It’s time for new thinking, new ideas, new ways of looking at the problem.

I have some of those new ideas, if you’d like to hear them.

Poor Eldrick Loses Again
Mickelson crushed him like a hydrant


Mickelson shockingly went from a six-shot deficit to a two-shot lead in just six holes.
Equally shocking was Eldrick the goat.

He three-putted for par and a 75, a whopping 11 shots worse than Mickelson.
Only four other players had a higher score than Woods in the final round.

Woods was two shots out of the lead when he walked off the sixth green
and then bogeyed the next three holes.

The two biggest names in golf played together in the second-to-last group,
both feeling as though they were close to breaking through,
both needed a dramatic charge at Pebble Beach.

That player turned out to be not Eldrick.

I hate it when Eldrick's tournament turns to muck
and I wasn't there to yell "Hex on Thee!" at the TV.

Poor Eldrick - will he ever win again?

Assad: Syria will shower Tel Aviv with rockets if attacked by foreign powers
  Michael Dare

Are you suggesting we do nothing and let Assad
systematically murder everyone in the city of Homs
and whatever city he decides to make his next example?

Syria's Homs under new deadly blitz

More than 80 people were killed in Syria Thursday, most of them in a new regime blitz
on the city of Homs, an attack Obama decried as "outrageous bloodshed".

Shelling erupted at daybreak, killing more than 50 civilians in the besieged central city
and burning several bodies beyond recognition, the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.

Troops trying to crush opponents of President Bashar al-Assad have killed at least
400 people in a relentless six-day onslaught on Homs, opposition activists say.

"The shells are raining down on us and regime forces are using heavy artillery,"
said Ali Hazuri, a doctor in the Baba Amr district reached by telephone from Beirut.

Omar Shaker, an activist in Baba Amr also reached by phone, said residents
were hiding on ground floors as there were no underground shelters.

As Billy said, WE didn't start the fire.

IF Assad is hell-bent on going out with a bang, maybe we should oblige him.

Maybe we could drop leaflets telling all civilians to leave Damascus
and then we have the Navy explain to him how shit works.

Sometimes, doing nothing is not an option.

Just my opinion...
