"Romney is pro rape. Both romney and ryan oppose paying for the abortions of
  our raped and forcibly impregnated FEMALE troops!  Romney no longer believes
  that his health care program should pay for the abortions of our raped/forcibly
  impregnated troops. Denying our raped and impregnated female troops the right
  to paid abortion is pro rape, pro rape culture, and anti american.”

Romney, the coathanger president
You won't believe what he has planned


In this 47-second video, Romney says he'll de-fund Planned Parenthood AND
he wants to enforece the "Mexico City Rule" which apparently means American
funds can't be used to pay for an abortion in any other country.

Gee, if I was a woman of child-bearing age, I'd want to know that Romney
wants to restrict my reproductive rights even when I travel abroad.

Thanks to bozak for the video

Obama takes 2nd debate seriously
Rumors say he might show up for this one


Although Obama’s ability to show some fight — or, at the very least, not look like he wants to
get off the stage as quickly as possible — will be the dominant story line of Tuesday night, there
are a few other interesting narrative strands to keep an eye on. We’ve plucked out three of those
most interesting below.

Obama the (more) aggressive:
Can Romney do it again?:
Town hall = tough(er) to attack:

Why did Obama agree to a debate where his hands are tied?
Why aren't they allowed to ask each other questions? Obama could say,
"Mitt, please take some of my time to explain which loopholes will be closed so
 you can pay for your massive 20% tax cut, or have you disavowed that, too?"

How's Obama supposed to win a debate if Mitt's constant lying is acceptable?

I just heard on CNN that Candy Crowley's not allowed to ask follow-up questions,
which means Mitt can non-answer EVERY QUESTION and the moderator is helpless.

Why did the Obama camp agree to such stupid rules?

Mitt's touching, heart-felt story - fake?
One you fake the sincerity, the rest is easy


On the stump in Iowa Tuesday, Mitt told a touching, heart-felt story about meeting a former
Navy SEAL Glen Doherty at a holiday party some years ago. Doherty is one of four Americans
killed during the September 11th attack on the American consulate in Benghazi.

Romney's story started out lighthearted:

"He told me that he keeps going back to the Middle East. He cares very deeply about the
people there. He served in the military there, went back from time to time to offer security
services and so forth to people there. You can imagine how I felt when I found out that he
was one of the two former Navy SEALS killed in Benghazi on September 11th."eek's

But that's not how Doherty's friend remember the encounter:

Elf Ellefsen met Glen Doherty when he was 19 and the two men remained friends for
more than 20 years.   According to Ellefsen, Romney introduced himself to Doherty
four separate times during the gathering.
"He said it was very comical," Ellefsen said, "Romney approached him ultimately four times,
using this private gathering as a political venture to further his image. He kept introducing himself
as Mitt Romney, a political figure. "He said it was pathetic and comical to have the same person
come up to you within only a half hour, have this person reintroduce himself to you, having absolutely
no idea whatsoever that he just did this 20 minutes ago, and did not even recognize Glen's face."

For a crook, Romney certainly is a clumsy liar.
You'd think he'd get better at lying with practice.

Heaven is Real, says Dr. who visited 'afterlife'
There's a sucker born every minute

After a week in a coma during the fall of 2008, during which his neocortex ceased to function,
Dr Eben Alexander claims he experienced a life-changing visit to the afterlife, specifically heaven.

"According to current medical understanding of the brain and mind, there is absolutely no way that
I could have experienced even a dim and limited consciousness during my time in the coma, much less
the hyper-vivid and completely coherent odyssey I underwent," Alexander writes in the cover story of
this week's edition of Newsweek. 

So what exactly does heaven look like?

Alexander says he first found himself floating above clouds before witnessing, "transparent, shimmering
beings arced across the sky, leaving long, streamer like lines behind them."

He claims to have been escorted by an unknown female companion and says he communicated with
these beings through a method of correspondence that transcended language. Alexander says the messages
he received from those beings loosely translated as:

"You are loved and cherished, dearly, forever."

"You have nothing to fear."

"There is nothing you can do wrong."

Have you ever heard such hooey in your life?

First, he admits there's no medical possibility that he saw what he saw.
Plus, his vision was a little cliche, don't you think?

"Floating in the clouds, transparent, shimmering" angels?  Really?

I'm surprised he didn't smell cinnamon in God's Cloud kitchen.

Bart, I recall you said you were planning a trip to OR, and I welcome your visit, but...
You are running out of fair weather. This past weekend it rained here in Portland, and while that in itself is not news.....

This was the first rain we'd had in, oh...4 months or so.
We've had what one would call a 'mediterranean summer'. 
Now, we might be coming back down to reality. 
So sad to see the sunshine go away.

At least the beer is still good....

Mitt: Clueless on Foreign Policy?
by Russ Baker


Take, for example, a recent New York Times assessment of Mitt Romney’s foreign policy positions.
The headline, “Romney Remains Vague on Foreign Policy Details,” was about as restrained as it could be.
But read a few excerpts, and you see what is really going on:
…beyond his critique of Mr. Obama as failing to project American strength abroad, Mr. Romney has yet
to fill in many of the details of how he would conduct policy toward the rest of the world, or to resolve
deep ideological rifts within the Republican Party and his own foreign policy team. It is a disparate and
politely fractious team of advisers.
…Each group is vying to shape Mr. Romney’s views, usually through policy papers that many of the
advisers wonder if he is reading. Indeed, in a campaign that has been so intensely focused on economic
issues, some of these advisers, in interviews over the past two weeks in which most insisted on anonymity,
say they have engaged with him so little on issues of national security that they are uncertain what camp
he would fall into, and are uncertain themselves about how he would govern..
…Two of Mr. Romney’s advisers said he did not seem to have the
strong instincts that he has on economic issues; [Emphasis added]
Given the common belief that national security/foreign policy is one of the two most important
areas a president must contend with, it is reasonable to ask: What the heck is going on?
How did we end up with a situation in which one of our two choices in
November is a man who seems to know, or care, so little about the world?

Sports Roundup

Cardinals come-from-behind victory Friday. (sorry, National fans)
They even won their first game against San Francisco Sunday night.

The Sooners kicked the Longhorns by, like 50 points (and 55 points last year)
That was once a hot rivalry, but Texas losing every time doesn't keep things very hot.
Then the Razorbacks actually looked like a football team in their win.

Then that wacky Mom-headbutt-er, Dez Bryant, dropped the pass
that would've tied the game for the Cowboys.
Cowboys are 2-3 now - and no doubt headed for the Super Bowl.

I miss Eldrick on days like these.
Eldrick missing a four-foot putt to lose the tournament would've made the weekend perfect.

 Subject: followed by irrational despair

Irrational?  Have they fucking forgotten Kerry in 2004?
A dead skunk should have been able to beat the Monkey by that time, but Kerry just
smiled and rolled over for his Skull and Bones brother - and left $40 million in the bank
after saying he'd fight for valid vote counts until he was broke.

Assholes.  Despair is all too rational.

I was doing so nice over here where I don't care what idiots they elect in Budapest,
because honestly, what can they break here?

I agree with Tally. 
The only reason people think Romney won is that the media told them Romney won. 
The fix was already in - Romney could have showed up drunk and fallen off the stage
and he still would have won.

Today's Mystery Celebrity Photo 


 Subject: last issue's Mystery Celebrity    Link

Bart, that's Eddie Izzard, the best stand-up comedian in the world for my money.
He's as liberal as they come (plans to run for Parliament), won one Emmy for his
stand-up performances and a second one for best writer as well.

He took up acting and in his first Broadway appearance was nominated for an Emmy.
He ran the equivalent of 43 marathons in 51 days for charity.

Check out the DVD of his life: "Believe." It's really moving, yet hilarious at the same time.
I think he's one of the nicest, most decent humans I've ever heard of. And yes, I did get
to talk to him a bit after his most recent Broadway run in "Race." And he's a transvestite,
but has stayed in normal dress for the last few years. An amazing guy.

Eddie breaks my rule.
Americans play guitar funny and the English can't do stand-up.

Eddie proved me half-wrong :)

Bart, that's Albert Einstein and his wife, Elsa, on a visit to the Grand Canyon in 1931.

The site is just to the left of the entrance to the Hopi House, and the others in the photo are Fred Harvey
employees, Hopi artists and artisans who produced pottery, weaving and silversmithing on site.

Out of respect, they gave Einstein a Hopi name, "The Great Relative." Clever, eh?
The war bonnet and pipe are plains Indian artifacts, not Hopi, but that's what the tourists expect.
