"Compromise is Democrats agreeing with Republicans."
--  the Teabagger who beat Sen Lugar in Indiana    Link

  The problem is the GOP doesn't want to be agreed with.
  When Obama agreed with them, they changed their minds and moved to the Right
  until he could no longer agree with them, THEN they said Obama was "rigid."
  Let's hope our president is as smart as Ol' Bart and realizes that.

Obama Gambles on Gay Marriage
Why did he light that fuse?  He was winning...


Obama said Wednesday he supports same-sex marriage, raising the political stakes on
an issue in which Americans are evenly split.   The announcement, long sought by supporters
of same-sex marriage, puts Obama squarely at odds with back-to-the-fifties Romney.
"At a certain point I've just concluded that for me personally it is important for me
  to go ahead and affirm that I think same sex couples should be able to get married,"
Obama said with all the clarity of the Second Amendment.

Obama once opposed same-sex marriage. He later indicated his views were "evolving."
His announcement in support of same-sex marriage was the first by a sitting president.

I don't get it - why pick this fight?

This is a BIG move and I damn sure don't see the reason for it.

Didn't Obama just start a war with pretty much every church?

Why?  and why now?
They surely planned this. Biden's "slip" didn't cause this - they wanted this fight.
(The White House claims they were "forced" to out Obama after Biden sac'd up,
but I don't believe them.)

They're going to drop a bomb each month - and this was May's?

April went to the bin Laden anniversary. 
May went to gay marriage, so what's June?   
Legalize pot? 

I haven't been this puzzled about something political in a long time.

What the hell does Obama have up his sleeve?

This was a tremendous gamble - one that could easily swing this election
and affect the future of every living American for the rest of their lives.

...yet it's illegal for me to bet $1 on three Jacks?

Why did Obama do that?
Was it just politics?


Even now, Obama remains a curiously elusive political leader. That is why his gay marriage
announcement Wednesday is one of the most fascinating moments in his presidency. Glib theories
about Obama’s often-cautious approach to the presidency, especially in an election year, have to be
revamped in light of his sudden endorsement of gay marriage.

There is a temptation to view the turnabout solely in electoral terms. Obama himself said that the
politics of same-sex marriage “may hurt me.” But perhaps the president made the calculation that
he was willing to risk the loss of a fraction of socially conservative swing voters in states like Ohio
in order to guarantee the enthusiasm of his top fundraisers. (A Washington Post analysis found that
almost 20 percent of Obama’s bundlers are gay). Maybe polling said that voter turnout is apt to be
higher if the president took a firm position on gay marriage.

Even if that's the case, Obama has the luxury of doing the right thing.
It's not like he suddenly came out for BIG tobacco or the NRA.

He came out for goddamn civil rights which is what Democrats are supposed to do.

Viewing child porn now legal in NY
But possession of child porn is still a crime


The New York Court of Appeals ruled Tuesday that viewing child pornography online is not a crime.

"The purposeful viewing of child pornography on the internet is now legal in New York," Senior Judge
Carmen Beauchamp Ciparick wrote in a majority decision for the court.

The decision came after Marist College professor James D. Kent was sentenced to prison in August 2009
after more than 100 images of child pornography were found on his computer's cache.  Whenever someone
views an image online, a copy of the image's data is saved in the computer's memory cache.

The ruling attempts to distinguish between individuals who see an image of child pornography online
versus those who actively download and store such images, MSNBC reports. And in this case, it was
ruled that a computer's image cache is not the same as actively choosing to download and save an image

This actually makes some sense.

Intelligence is overrated
by Keld Jensen at Forbes Whore Magazine


Albert Einstein’s was estimated at 160, Madonna’s is 140, and John F. Kennedy’s was only 119,
but as it turns out, your IQ score pales in comparison with your EQ, MQ, and BQ scores when it
comes to predicting your success and professional achievement.

IQ tests are used as an indicator of logical reasoning ability and technical intelligence. A high IQ is
often a prerequisite for rising to the top ranks of business today. It is necessary, but it is not adequate
to predict executive competence and corporate success. By itself, a high IQ does not guarantee that
you will stand out and rise above everyone else.

Isn't it funny that, every fours years, the right-wing media starts their "Brains don't count" chant.

"You don't really want the president to be the smartest guy in the room," they tell us.

"Pick a president you'd like to have a beer with," they say, every four years.

They say that because, every four years, they nominate a f-ing moron.

FOX anchor applauds Obama
Shep Smith warns GOP not to fuck up


Moments after Obama said that he supports gay marriage, Fox News' Shepard Smith applauded
the president, and warned conservatives not to use the issue as part of its presidential campaign.

"What I'm most curious about, in this time of rising debts and medical issues and all the rest,
if Republicans would go out on a limb and try to make this a campaign issue while sitting
very firmly, without much question, on the wrong side of history."

Subject: Lugar

Oh my God don't get me started.  Dick Lugar's politics looked pretty
Neanderthal back in the 80's - I remember friends talking about one
sit-in at his office over foreign policy (back before I was a
sufficiently committed liberal) - but in recent years, seeing news item
after news item out of Indiana, I could always kind of sigh and remember
that Lugar was at least one thing Indiana could be proud of in the
political arena.  He's a good man. Privileged, yes, rich, yes, but still
*sane* and aware that you have to support society as a whole, not just
your friends.

I have some pretty tea-bagging high school friends on Facebook, and I do
my absolute damndest not to excoriate them - the worst is the one
counting down to the end of the despotic, tyrannical, treasonous Obama
reign and I do my best not to laugh at that every time she posts it.
Well, *she* was quite enthused about deposing Lugar, who, as she said,
has been our senator literally our entire lives.

It's poison.  I like Lugar and always have.  I've been profoundly
disappointed that he's played limp as he watched his party disintegrate,
and that he didn't bother to phone in any kind of criticism of Bush and
Cheney back in the day, but seriously - the new guy will be a joke and
an embarrassment.

If, as people are saying, this is all last-gasp conservatism, then I can't
wait for the fat lady to start warming up those vocal cords. 

We gotta get to the end of this.

Yogurt makes your testicles bigger
Our Democrats need cases of it


Yogurt could feed your sexual prowess, says the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
Last summer, the MIT team wanted to test the link between eating yogurt and obesity.
The team fed mice with either a high-fat, low-nutrient diet or a diet more typical of rodents.
“The most entertaining aspects of all this were things we didn’t anticipate,” says biologist
Susan Erdman.   Male mice developed testicles that were 5% heavier than mice that were
only fed regular food, and 15% heavier than mice fed only junk food.

Wait, how do you weigh a mouse's testicles?
And don't say with a Mouse Testicle scale.
The extra yogurt boost also gave the creatures a “swagger,” researchers said. Male mice were faster
to inseminate females and had more babies than the other group. As a result, females had larger litters.

Did Bush eat Yogurt before he played dress-up on that carrier?

Longtime Bartcop Reader getting 20 years?


Tom Daubert, 59, faces a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison,
a $500,000 fine for following Montana's pot laws to the letter.

He did NOT count on Obama waging a jihad against his legal business
that was helping sick people.

So, what's the lesson here - don't follow the law?

Maybe second-term Obama will help overturn the craziness of first-term Obama.
