The GOP had a Terrible 2013


By key Republican metrics, 2013 was a banner year for the president.

Instead of noting this, Republicans are celebrating their success at helping to turn
public opinion against President Obama in his fifth year in office.

After years of trying to conjure a scandal for this White House, Republicans were even eager
to attack the president from the left on Syria and government surveillance. The right-wing media
amplified the complaints of the small group of “anti-war” Republicans not because they were
rejecting the warmongering and abuses of power of the Bush administration, but to score points
against a man they despise for beating them soundly — twice. This specious strategy became
obvious when the administration’s sudden progress toward disarming Syria — and Iran —
was met with silence or the sorry trope of “appeasement.”

Regardless, the president did the most damage to himself this year with the launch of,
which shook the nation’s confidence as it sputtered and crashed for two whole, crucial months.
Now that the site is working for most people and millions have signed up for health insurance,
Republicans are hoping they’ll be able to make 2014 about the failings of Obamacare.

The chances of another fiasco are minimal, so the focus will be on making
the inevitable troubling anecdotes of reform drown out the droves of people with health coverage
for the first time in years—or their lives.

Racist Duck Man Risks $500M
Exactly how much does he hate Blacks and Gays?


The gay-bashing “Duck Dynasty” family and A&E have lots of reasons to resolve the controversy
sparked by the racist's comments about gays: almost $500 million in fact.

Robertson, the rich Republican elitist, was suspended indefinitely last week by A&E after telling GQ
magazine that homosexuals were akin to adulterers, the greedy, drunkards and swindlers and would
not “inherit the kingdom of God.”

His comments and suspension put at risk a show that has exploded in popularity since it first began airing
in March 2012. “Duck Dynasty” has generated $400 million in merchandise sales. The show has produced
almost $80 million in advertising sales for A&E this year through September.

“‘Duck Dynasty’ is A&E’s biggest revenue generator and major viewer franchise,” said Porter Bibb.
“America believes in second acts,” he added, predicting Robertson “will be given another chance.”

Subject: Don Seigelman

Bart, you are correct that this case is just the dirty bastard Republicans and their
false outrage at Don.  They couldn't beat him at the polls and had to resort to lies. 

If Don is guilty of what they accused him of then EVERY politician is also guilty. 
Rove and the other Bush Bastards were complicit in this and Democrats have not been heard from. 
He is a good man who has been terribly wronged and I hope people begin to help him!!

Gay Marriage in Dark Red Utah?
The Rude Pundit makes sense of it


On Friday, in a surprise decision that made the bones of Brigham Young reach for his
scalping knife, Judge Robert Shelby ruled that Utah's 2004 voter-approved ban on
same-sex marriage was unconstitutional. He did so without a trial because, as his decision
makes clear, why the fuck bother? Is there really anything new to add to the argument?
Does someone have evidence that gay dudes marrying is a secret conspiracy to castrate
the straights? No? Then, to paraphrase Shelby, "Go fuck yourselves instead of fucking
with the rights of others."

County clerks around the state started issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples,
and there was much muff-diving and cock-gobbling in celebration, especially after Sunday,
when a federal appeals court refused to issue a stay of the decision.

Damn, I'll bet f-ing Utah gets legal pot before Oklahoma does.

Palin's Wall between Church & State 
by Gene Lyons

                        The Alaskan babbler


We have just enough religion to make us hate,” wrote Jonathan Swift, “but not enough
to make us love one another.” A lifelong religious controversialist, the 18th-century Irish
satirist definitely knew whereof he wrote. After all, it’s fewer than 20 years since Protestants
and Catholics in Northern Ireland quit dynamiting each other’s gathering places.

Even here in the United States, it often seems that picking fights over religion increases during
the Christmas season. If anything, claiming to be persecuted while expressing contempt for
others’ belief appears on the rise.

And, no, I’m not talking only about the annual invocation of paranoid triumphalism Fox News
calls the “War on Christmas.” Nor even about noted theologian Rush Limbaugh assailing Pope
Francis as a “Marxist” for criticizing the tyranny of markets and the worship of money.
Because Jesus was all about capital formation and tax cuts for the wealthy.

Everywhere you look, somebody’s insulting somebody else’s religion.

Cowboy Romo out for the Season
Millstone removed for BIG game Sunday


Dallas Cowboys fans who have complained about butterfingers Tony Romo
are about to find out how bad it might get without him.  ha ha
Romo is out for the season with a back injury, according to ESPN.

The Cowboys play the Eagles at home this Sunday night with the NFC East
championship on the line, but will have to go with Kyle Orton at quarterback.

Orton has just 15 attempts over the last two seasons with the Cowboys.

you probably have millions of people bugging you to push something on your page all the time. 
as reluctant and as mortified as i am to be 'that guy,' i think this is a really worthy cause. 
hell, for all i know, YOU were the one to educate me about this american's life in the first place!

i'm sure you've heard of Don Siegelman.  he's been a bright light in alabama state politics for many years
 - and for all the right reasons.  ...until the '02 election, that is.  he was hounded by filthy right wing scum
from the bush "administration" with trumped up, bullshit charges, notably by that cockroach karl rove. 

i guess his only real crime is not being a dirty, mindless fascist during the bush years.  siegelman is a good guy
who was at the wrong place at the wrong time - NOTHING more.  and he and his family have paid for it
having to watch this poor bugger sit for two years of his life in some shithole american prison.  'course, even
under those conditions the guy bears up under it with the utmost grace and humility. 

this is a travesty - hell, it's a fucking disgrace.  (it makes my blood pressure blow a bloody safety valve
AND I DON'T EVEN HAVE HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE!!) --that these rat bastards can just flush
a good man's life down the dunny without the slightest consequences.

anyway, he's got this devoted daughter who fights like the devil to get some justice.  all she asks is that
people who use social media (not me, unfortunately, but hopefully this makes up for it) to spread the word. 

i don't know what it would take to put a little blurb on your page, but if you
could see your way clear, i know I would be happy and proud to see it.

either way, thanks, bart.

I get e-mail that says, "I bought a big ticket item from Amazon. Did you get credit?"
Often the answer is no and ducks (She's from Oregon) may have found out why.

 Subject: your Amazon credit

Bart, you need to tell your 12 readers about this (see reply below from amazon), it makes a difference.
Do NOT shop first and then use your link, bart gets no credit then. Everyone needs to use your link first.
Although I think the whole process is kind of complicated, I have to say I am impressed with the response,
including how quickly they replied.

Again, the key is place it in the cart during the 24 hour session after using your link.
People can shop all they want, just don't put it in the cart unless you do it during that window.
 Hope this helps.

Hello Ducks,
I have researched your orders placed on December 11, 2013 and found that they weren't credited to Bart's account.
I'm sorry, but these order cannot be retroactively credited to the Associate.

In order to ensure that Bart receives credit for a future order you will need to start your shopping session from that site.
As you stated in your e-mail that you already had items in your shopping cart when you went and clicked on the Associate
link on this site, that appears to be why the items didn't get credited to this Associate.  Anything you place in your shopping
cart within the 24 hours following your entry from the sponsoring website will be credited to that site if it is purchased
within 90 days. Credit will not be given for other items already in your cart from a previous visit.

I hope this information helps.

When will A&E Network Crack?
"Duck Dynasty" is their biggest show


While boycott petitions against "Duck Dynasty" bosses A&E take off, the network itself is staying quiet.

Since its Wednesday decision to "indefinitely" suspend racist gay-basher Phil Robertson, A&E has yet to
publicly clarify what the future of the show might be, what they'll do with their block of reruns, or even
what it really means to be "indefinitely" suspended.

The network's lack of communication has done nothing to stem the tide of detractors who strongly disagree
with its decision to put Robertson on the bench his racist, gay-bashing remarks. A petition demanding
that Robertson be reinstated and the network issue an apology was steadily climbing toward 100,000 signatures Friday.

A separate petition at a website called makes a similar appeal. Hosted by the online
community Handjob Driven Consumers, the website helps its members spend their money with companies
that hate niggers and queers. That petition surpassed 130,000 signatures last Friday evening.

So, when will A&E Network cave?

Should we make a grid like an office betting pool?

Hi Bart,

That’s Moscow State University. 
I spent an interesting summer there a few years ago as a guest student.

MSU is one of the “Seven Sisters,” seven high-rises that ring Moscow. All seven buildings
were built post-WWII under Stalin.  They’re all similar in size (read:”HUGE”) and style.

MSU is a self-contained university campus --- classrooms, dormitories, auditoriums,
food courts, post offices, laundry facilities --- all under one roof.  The locals proudly
claim it is the largest building in the world.
