Has Katie Kouric Gone Crazy?
She's "pulling a Jenny McCarthy" on vaccines


Katie Couric may want to brush up on her reporting skills before she becomes "global anchor" at Yahoo!,
according to a number of critics displeased with a report about the HPV vaccine on her how, "Katie."

In a segment that aired Wednesday, Couric and a panel of guests discussed the supposed controversy
surrounding the vaccine, known as Gardasil, which prevents transmission of a STD that affects 80 million
Americans and has been linked to numerous forms of cancer, particularly cervical.

The outcry began Tuesday with a blog post from science writer Seth Mnookin. Mnookin was troubled by
the sensationalistic teaser for the episode: "The HPV vaccine is considered a life-saving cancer preventer
… but is it a potentially deadly dose for girls?"

People could get sick or die because Katie wants higher ratings.
I hear measles is on the rise because teabaggers and homeschoolers aren't getting their shots.

Who knows - maybe we can get polio to come back, too.

 Subject: CNN Breaking News

Florida State University quarterback and Heisman Trophy hopeful Jameis Winston will not
be charged in a case of alleged rape, the state attorney for Lee County, Florida, said today.

"We have a duty as prosecutors to only file charges if we have a reasonable likelihood of a conviction,"
State Attorney Willie Meggs said. "We did not feel we could meet that burden."

I know very little about this BUT I read that the accuser said her attacker was 5' 10".
Jameis Winston is 6 foot 4, so maybe that's why they felt they couldn't win.

KY Gov: Bitch, Stop Lying
Kentucky signed up 70,000 and counting


It was just Wednesday that Mitch the Bitch (R-Ky.) railed against the Obamacare, calling it
a "catastrophic failure" for people everywhere.

"This is beyond fixing. It needs to be pulled out root and branch and we need to start over,"
McConnell lied on Fox News. "It's been a catastrophe for health care and for the economy at large."

But the governor of McConnell's home state says The Butch is lying, the health care law is working,
and people in Kentucky can't get enough of it.

"The Bitch keeps saying Kentuckians don't want this. Well, the facts don't prove that out," Kentucky
Gov. Steve Beshear (D) told reporters.

Beshear said more than 550,000 people have visited the state's Obamacare website More than 180,000
have called into the health care call center and about 69,000 people have signed up, or about 1,000
Kentuckians per day. Of those who have signed up, he said, 41 percent are under the age of 35.

"There is a tremendous pent-up demand in Kentucky for affordable health care," Beshear said.
"People are hungry for it."

Nelson Mandela passed away but he left behind an incredible legacy that has been a blessing to humanity.
Very few people have lived the kind of extraordinary life that he lived with a record of accomplishment to
be celebrated by the entire planet. Mandela joins great people in history like Martin Luther King and Mahatma
Gandhi who not only freed the oppressed but created a standard worldwide that all people have an equal right
to lives of freedom and dignity. Mandela is an inspiration and a role model for everyone on the planet and his
spirit lives on in the soul of humanity. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Palin 'humble enough' to accept Bashir apology
If you belueve that I have a bridge to sell you


Sarah Palin accepted Martin Bashir's apology on Thursday, a day after he resigned in the wake
of a scandal stemming from comments he made about her.

"My role is to accept his apology and be humble enough to accept it and move on," Palin said.
“At this point, I’m used to it. ... In this world, you are going to be hurt and attacks will come your way."

Last month, Bashir apologized to Palin and MSNBC viewers after suggesting on air that Palin
be defecated on for comparing the federal debt to slavery.

"I made some comments which were deeply offensive and directed at Gov. Sarah Palin," Bashir said.
"I want to say sorry to Mrs. Palin and to also offer an unreserved apology to her friends and family,
her supporters and our viewers. My words were wholly unacceptable."

But the initial apology was apparently not enough for Palin, who canceled a scheduled holiday
interview with the "Today" show in protest over NBC News not taking action against Bashir.

On Wednesday, Bashir announced his resignation.

It was a really stupid and unnecessary thing to say, Martin.
Palin loves playing trhe victim and your comments gave her more power.

 US states take jump as legal marijuana markets open


 Colorado and Washington are taking a big jump forward. They are creating a pot market
in which local authorities will oversee growing, distribution and marketing -- all of it legal
-- for people to get high just for the fun of it.

In Colorado, famous for its Rocky Mountain ski resorts, at least 130 licenses have been issued
for small shops which, starting January 1, will be able to sell up to 28 grams of marijuana to
people aged 21 or older.

Another 300 applications for licenses are pending. The pot sold in shops will come from private, licensed growers.

In Colorado, consumption, possession and domestic growing of pot in small amounts were already
allowed. But sales of it were not. This left the door open for drug dealers to operate.

In legal terms, smoking pot will be subject to the same rules and obligations as those governing
alcohol. People will not be able to smoke it in public or grow it on public land.

Oh, so nobody's drinking beer at the ball game?

 Subject: JFK, 9-11 and all the rotten schiess...

In a span of less than five years the three greatest and most high-profile Progressives this country
had ever seen, men who had more support from our nation than any of their competitors or detractors,
were murdered.  Ever since then the Progressive cause has mostly floundered while the far-right was
resurrected from the fate of national irrelevance.  Coincidentally the murdered President was about to
announce his plan to disband the CIA before he was shot.  And those within his inner circle knew and
he was no fan of the FBI or the warhawks in the Pentagon either.
Skip ahead 37 years, one generation.
Within less than one year, after the most contentious and controversial election this country has ever held,
our nation suffered the most devastating and violent attack that ever occurred on American soil, apart from
the Civil War.   It made Americans “forget” any issues of illegitimacy hanging over the new president, and it
became unpatriotic to voice any doubts about it either because now we were “under attack”.
And coincidentally, a certain report which claimed to verify the legitimacy of the new president was simply
buried by the mainstream national media.  The report concluded after a review of some 175,000 ballots that
although the new president may have won, ballots by minority and elderly voters were tossed out over all
other ballots at a rate over 3-to-1, a difference significant enough to have changed the outcome.  And not
so coincidentally, after all the clamor about the need for ballot reform, the only changes to have occurred
in all these years since make voting even more difficult for minorities and the elderly, not easier.
Now what do these seemingly separate and terrible events have in common?  I won’t review all likely
degrees of separation, but two certain federal agencies and two certain presidents, who happen to share
the same name, immediately come to mind.
No one will ever convince me there wasn’t a conspiracy at the highest levels of our national law enforcement,
both before and after the fact, in each of these tragedies.  In October of 2017 the last of the JFK assassination files
will be released.  There won’t be any telltale clues of course, but if they do raise more questions than they answer
you can be sure a new generation of dedicated historians will make it their mission to discover, and uncover, the truth.

“If you died today, do you know where you’d spend the rest of eternity?”
No, and neither do you. So stop asking such a presumptuous question.
“He is in a better place.”

Right-Wingers vs Shirley Manson
An Appropriately Named Rock Band  is Creeping into the Consciousness of Our Youth

“Come down to my house–stick a stone in your mouth
 You can always pull out–if you like it too much
 Make a whole new religion
 A falling star that you cannot live without
 And I’ll feed your obsession
 There’ll be nothing but this thing that you’ll never doubt”

These are the first words that our precious youth will hear when they
play the CD from rock band very appropriately named “Garbage.”

Yeah, eighteen years ago.
That CD came out in 1995, before today's precious yoots were born.

The song’s lyrical content paints an eerie picture of deviant sex by rejecting the religious upbringing
that their parents have worked so hard to instill in them. This band and its popularity is a testament
to the depths at which the world has fallen as it succumbs time and time again to the will of Satan.

You think there's a Satan?
Are you f-ing six years old?
Do you really think invisible demons are coming to "get you?"
I'll bet you voted for Romney.

The track is called “Supervixen.”
It is sung by a visibly striking glamor whorelot named Shirley Manson.

ha ha
You might want to watch what you say.
If Shirley gets angry she could bite your ears off.
You'd really be better off going after anyone else.

While rejecting religious upbringing during her formative years in Edinburgh, Scotland, Ms. Manson
took to the lure of satanic music in the form of bands like the Pretenders and Patty Smithe.

Really, Dude?
The Pretenders and Patty Smithe are Satanic?
How can you tell if music is "Satanic" - if it sells well?
BTW, The Pretenders went country - can you have Satanic country music?

Manson’s early slippage down the popularity ladder...

What does that mean?

was caused by Christian rejection of her acceptance of Satanism.

She's not as poular because Christians rejected her acceptance of Satanism?

That "Satan song" is 18 years old, so why is she being rejected now?
And who decided she was being rejected?

If you decide to confront Shirley, could I be there to watch?
I'll bring a plastic bag for your ears.

More States Turning to Pot
Every state but Oklahoma will get there, eventually


The economics of legalizing marijuana for recreational use has several states watching Colorado and
Washington to see if revenues rise. The latest member of the club is Portland, Maine, which just legalized
pot within the city limits. A city ordinance went into effect on Friday, Dec. 6 that allows possession up to
2.5 ounces. It's the first city on the East Coast to legalize recreational use of marijuana.

"It's like the onset of casino gambling," says Alan Bochstein, founder of the 420 Investor. Colorado and
Washington are the first states to legalize recreational use of marijuana and the money is as green as the weed.
Colorado is expected to save $12 million a year for reduced criminal costs and generate $32 million in
new revenue. Washington state says it can save $23 million a year on criminal costs, but thinks the business
could deliver up to $530 million, a much higher number than the other states partly because it includes
marijuana tourism estimates.

All in all, it's no wonder other states are jonesing for this new found revenue.
Who's next?   MN, NY, PA, AK, AZ, CA, OR and Illinois got there, already.

Saving millions on reduced criminal costs should do the trick all by itself.

Making hundreds of millions of dollars from tourism is a gift from Baby Jesus.

Bart,when my state blocked Medicaid expansion, I knew it was… SABOTAGE!
And, the Insurance companies are part of it.
The Sheeple are conned by it.

The shame is, Obama proves to be ineffective.
This would never have happened to Lyndon Johnson or even Nixon.
Arms would have been fractured by either of them. They got what they wanted, even war.

Fuck the "Little Girl Can't Sell Mistletoe" Story:
Nobody tells it like the Rude Pundit

Here's the story: Adorable 11 year-old girl with the uber-American name of Madison Root finds out
she needs braces. To help her Oregon family with the $4800 cost of the things, she harvests and bags
mistletoe at her uncle's farm. She heads to downtown Portland - you know, of Portlandia - to sell her
Christmassy wares at the Portland Saturday Market, which happens right on the waterfront every, well,
Saturday. Madison gets to the market, sets up shop, and starts making coin. Then a park guard at the
market tells her that she can't sell, that she needs a permit and a membership in the market. Then he tells
her that it'd be cool if she wanted to ask people for donations because that's protected speech. Says the
crooked-toothed young entrepreneur, "I don't want to beg! I would rather work for something than beg."
The market organization has invited her to become a member without paying the fee that everyone else
has to. And people offered to buy her mistletoe and donate money to straighten those beaver chompers.

Should be the end of the story, no? No? No.

Because, see, then Madison, prompted, no doubt, by her outraged father, went full teabagger to a
local news station: "It’s not about the mistletoe. And it’s not about me. It’s about all of us. It’s about
how we’re raising wimps, how people would rather beg for money than work hard!"

And, before you could say, "No, dear child, it's actually about how laws apply to all people, even tweens," 
Right Blogsylvania and the conservative media went to DefCon Benghazi.
