Drama Queen of the Day

Bryan Fischer, hateful racist asshole formerly of the American Family Association, with an over-the-top screed on the Dictator Obama daring to restore the historic name of sacred Mt. Denali in Alaska.

Always Remember, Kids!

It’s not a “mandate” unless it includes a majority of white people, preferably white men!

Putin and the Right: Remember When?


The American Right Wing has always had a disturbing man-crush on Vladimir Putin, they just seem to have forgotten it lately. Even now, though, some like Cong. Mike Rogers can’t help slipping in a little praise for Putin as they bash Obama.

It Sucks To Be Boehner


John Boehner has, for all intents and purposes, been deposed by Ted Cruz as Speaker of the House in a (so far) bloodless coup. The Lunatic Fringe caucus of his party takes its orders from Cruz, leaving him powerless to extricate himself from the shutdown debacle Cruz got him into in the first place, even though he clearly has the votes to end this. How crazy is the Lunatic Fringe Caucus, you may ask? Crazy enough that even Grover “Drown the government in the bathtub” Norquist thinks they’re crazy. Uncharacteristically, Obama and the Democrats are standing firm and Republicans are taking huge hits in the polls. You have to work pretty hard at it to get a 10% approval rating. What’s the solution? If this trainwreck continues for a month, Democrats and a few sane Republicans can force a vote through a discharge petition, which will also likely be the final nail in the coffin of the Boehner speakership. It could also provide momentum for Democrats to retake the House, though they still have a high hurdle to overcome thanks to gerrymandering. Unless something changes dramatically, this seems like the most likely scenario to me.


Drifting Away

Does anyone, including President Obama, have any idea what he wants to accomplish in his second term?

Obama 2.0

Overall, a good speech. Surprisingly for the notoriously centrist Obama, it was an explicitly liberal/progressive speech, tagging formerly forbidden topics like gay marriage and climate change. This, combined with the generally more aggressive stance he’s taken since Election Day gives me a little more hope for the next four years.

Bottom Line…

…repeat of the last debate in terms of style/presentation, meaning advantage Obama. Kind of confused by Mitt’s bold strategy of fighting to agree with Obama every chance he got. Took Obama two good debates to wash off the stench from his first performance. Substance? Please. America has had the same China policy (economic capitulation) for the last 30 years. And everyone agrees that blowing up villagers with drones is a swell way to win friends and influence people. Global warming? Hah. Evidently teachers unions, bayonets and horses are more relevant to foreign policy.

“It’s just like Nazi Germany/Hitler!” “I am completely and totally ignorant of world history.”
“The Civil War wasn’t about slavery.” “I am completely and totally ignorant of American history.”
“Barack Obama is a socialist/communist.” “I have no idea what Obama’s policies are nor do I have any idea what the word ‘socialist’ means.”
“You can’t prove that it’s not true!” “I lack the knowledge of logic and reason found in junior high debate classes.”
“That’s against God’s will.” “I have never actually read the Bible and wouldn’t know it if you smacked me upside the head with the King James Version.”
“Homosexuals are destroying America.” “I am so far in the closet I can see Narnia from here.”
“Indians should just get over it.” “Please smack me in the mouth.”
“My great great grandmother was a Cherokee princess.” “Please smack me in the mouth.”
“America was founded as a Christian Nation.” “I am completely and totally ignorant of American history.”
“It’s well-documented…” “I’m totally pulling this out of my ass.”
“I want the government out of my life.” “I want the government in your life.”
“I’m sick of all these welfare moochers.” “I hate that any tax money goes to brown people.”
“Tax cuts pay for themselves.” “I don’t understand arithmetic.”
“I don’t need any help from the government.” “I would starve to death in my own filth without government assistance.”
“Illegal aliens need to go back where they came from.” “Irony escapes me.”
“I want a small Federal government.” “I want a police state for everyone but me.”
“Muslim extremists are taking over America.” “I want Christian extremists to take over America.”
“Bring back prayer in public school.” “Bring back Right Wing protestant evangelical prayer personally approved by me in public school.”
“Corporations are people, my friend.” “Unicorns are real.”
“Voter ID is just common sense.” “I’m upset that Negroes and poor people are allowed to vote.”
“We just want to Take Back America.” “I’m upset that Negroes and poor people are allowed to vote.”

FOX “News” Is Lying

In other news, puppies and kittens are cute and the Earth revolves around the sun.  Here’s what’s REALLY pathetic about this story, though; it’s NOT that FOX “News” is nothing but a transparent propaganda shill for the Republic Party.  We already knew that.  It’s NOT that FOX “News” would blatantly edit footage to cast the Evil Kenyan Usurper in the worst possible light.  No, that just means it’s Thursday.  The REALLY pathetic thing about this story is that NO ONE covers this story, or even mentions the obvious lies, except for a comedian on a comedy network.
