Rand Paul Slams Chris Christie
Don't you love it when Republicans fight?


The next Republican presidential primary is already heating up.

On Friday, Senator Rand Paul (a KY senator) slammed Chris Christie for his recent positions
— from the Hurricane Sandy Relief Bill to his views on gun control —saying they would likely
alienate GOP primary voters.

On Thursday, Christie — a Republican darling who many called on to run in 2012— weighed in
on the recent NRA ad against Obama, taking the president's side and calling the ad "reprehensible."

Paul, who thinks he's going to be president, said on The Laura Ingraham Show: “I think criticizing
the Second Amendment movement and the over-the-top ‘give me my money’ stuff, ‘I want all 60
billion now or I’ll throw a tantrum,’ I don’t think that’s going to play well in the Republican primary.”

“You have some Republicans backing down like Christie backing down and criticizing the NRA,
and I think that doesn’t do any good,” Paul said, according to a transcript.

“I think he may be solidifying his support with Democrats in New Jersey and maybe liberal Republicans,”
Paul said of Christie’s recent positions.

Christie has received criticism from a number of conservatives recently.

Yes, by all means, criticize the most popular Republican in America.

Call him "crazy" for being the most popular
Republican in America.
Tear him down and force him to become just another Teabagger with a 30% approval rating.

the most popular Republican in America is a bad thing, right Rand?

I suggest we keep winning presidential elections to deny the crazies access to the levers of power.

As time goes by, maybe Democrats can get a handle on all this.

Measuring GOP Extremism
  by Joe Conason


It is becoming increasingly plain that the most formidable obstacle to national progress and global
security is the Republican Party – and specifically the extremist factions that currently dominate the GOP.

Now Democratic pollster Stan Greenberg and James Carville have announced what they plan to do about
that pressing problem: namely, “The Republican Party Project,” which will provide extensive survey research
devoted to “exposing, monitoring, and confronting” the Republicans while helping Democrats and progressives
to regain the political offensive.

Carville and Greenberg released the first in a series of polls on Wednesday. According to Carville and Greenberg,
Republican extremism is leaving the party increasingly isolated, even from many of its own members.

At the moment, only 31 percent of voters identify as Republicans. Republicans are regarded with absolute disdain
by most of those polled.  Only 13 percent believe that the GOP “shares their values” and only 9 percent believe
that the GOP has “realistic solutions to the nation’s problems”

I was going to say something about Democratic loyalty, but it's Wednesday.

On Wednesdays, we fight ONLY with Teabaggers and Republicans.

Not only that, but they'll cheat and break the law and destroy evidence next time, too.
There's no reason to obey the law if there's no penalty.
I would say something about Obama's negotiating skills
but it's Wednesday and I'm trying to  play nice.

Say I'm selling 8-balls of cocaine for $300.

I make $150 profit per 8-ball, and if I somehow get caught,
I pay a fine of $25 and go right back to selling more cocaine.

There's no reason to obey a law if there's no penalty.

Last night, John Oliver had something to say about this.

It's Illegal to be Gay in Louisiana
Don't they know it's the 21 Century?


Police face criticism over undercover operations aimed at stopping "crimes against nature"
At least a dozen men have been arrested by the East Baton Rouge sheriff's office in Louisiana since 2011
for agreeing to have consensual sex with an undercover male officer, according to The Advocate newspaper.

These men weren't handing over money or having sex in a public place. Instead, they were arrested under
Louisiana's anti-sodomy law, despite the fact that such laws were deemed unconstitutional by the Supreme
Court in 2003 in Lawrence v. Texas.

The most recent case involved a 65-year-old man who was approached by an undercover cop in a park.
The police officer, who denied he was a cop, asked if the man wanted to go back to the man's apartment
for "some drinks and some fun." After the man agreed and led the officer back to his apartment, he was
arrested for an attempted "crime against nature."

Similar stings had been conducted by the sheriff's office even after the district attorney refused to prosecute them.

So, having "some drinks and some fun" is illegal in Louisiana?

Seems like that would kill tourism.

1400 US Cities Underwater
But Jungle Jim Inhofe says "Not a problem"


A rise in sea levels threatens the viability of more than 1,400 cities and towns, including Miami,
Virginia Beach and Jacksonville, unless there are deep cuts in heat-trapping greenhouse gas emissions,
says an analysis out Monday.

Prior emissions have already locked in 4 feet of future sea-level rise that will submerge parts of 316
municipalities, but the timing is unclear and could take hundreds of years, according to the paper in
the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. If global warming continues at its current rate
through the year 2100, at least an additional 1,100 cities and towns will be mostly under water at
high tide in the distant future.

 Subject: Global Warming?


For the moment, let me pretend to be a global warming ignorer. 
I can tell there's no global warming, since I was on vacation at
the end of June and the high temperatures rarely reached 90°. 

Yes, I did get a sunburn, but there were also a few days
where it didn't get above 70° and there was even rain.

Oh, by the way, my summer vacation was in Alaska.

Russ, thanks for that.

I don't say this often enough, but when it comes to climate change, if THEY are right, and
climate change isn't a problem, we've squandered some money.
If WE are right, and climate
change is a serious problem, we've squandered precious time and now we're all dead.

Do they think God is going to send a fleet of arcs?

Since it's Wednesday and I'm trying not to say anything negative about any Democrat,
let's just say things would be better if this issue WAS NOT treated like "we each have our own opinion."

No, that's not true.
This isn't "I like Ford, you like Chevy,"

Earth is burning the f-up before our eyes and nobody is doing anything about it.

Did you hear the one about the glacier in the mountains above Bolivia? (whatever)   It's melting
and when it's gone, tens of millions of people in South America will have no access to fresh water.
I suspect they come north when that happens - sound like fun?

And I'll be gone in the year 2100 when 1400 American cities are expected to be underwater
but what about your grandkids?

Are they expecting God to send a fleet of arcs?

Is climate change what God meant when he warned about "burning for all eternity?

Hillary Machine Gearing Up
Harold Ickes, James Carville on board


The Ready for Hillary super PAC has raised $1.25 million over the past three months,
an official confirms, adding that $1 million of their haul was raised in June alone.

Last month some leading Democratic donors pow-wowed in New York City with top Clinton
allies to discuss funding for the PAC. Harold Ickes, who's now advising Ready for Hillary,
made a pitch to potential donors.  Clinton aides say 535,000 are signed up as supporters.
While guarded at first, some top names, such James Carville, have now embraced the PAC.

I know you know who James Carville is, but Harold Ickes isn't such a household name.
Harold Ickes is a SERIOUS player and he's been under-the-radar for far too long.

Ickes is one of my favorite political people of all time and if he's on Hillarty's team,
she's certainly a step closer to running.  Ickes is like a Bartcop plus 100 IQ points.

The good news?
My biggest advertiser wasn't all that big, so this isn't a crushing blow.
But you know how they say when one door closes another one opens?
I need a new banner advertiser door to open.

Anyone out there know of a banner network that needs more eyeballs?

I don't need one of those "hijack your page" advertisers,
just a regular banner displayed like you've seen here for years.

These guys pay a month or two late so I need to sign someone up - quick!

could slide in there and grab, say, 10% for yourself.

Bart, so much what makes athletes great is TALENT.
I could take all the "performing enhancing" drugs there are and I would still be lousy.

Of course players want to extend their careers when that much money is at stake.
I don't know the answer but colorful, dazzling players, with or without drugs make sports popular.
I'm thinking the drugs are not that big a deal. Anymore than the other equipment the players use.

It would appear The Quitter wants it both ways. She starts out saying

but then she says it's all a fake plot by pointy-headed liberal-elites, etc.
