The violence brewing in video clips of the astroturffing tea baggers hell bent on making sure no intelligent debate can take place in Town Hall meetings regarding Healthcare has thrown even the unflappable, calm, rational ex-clown, Glenn Beck, into a tizzy of fear.

Two years ago, yesterday, in Minneapolis the I-35 W Mississippi River Bridge (known officially as Bridge 9340) like the London Bridge in the Nursery Rhyme came falling down during the peak of rush hour, 6:05 PM, CDT.

So, there you have it. It’s the evil liberals’ fault that the birthers have made such a fuss. It certainly had nothing to do with the many Republican senators who refused to sign a bill celebrating HI as a state, which just so happened to mention that President Obama was born there. Naw. Republicans are really mad at HI and just don’t want to acknowledge the state. Just cuz. Stop asking questions.
Jon Stewart has now earned the wrath of Rush Limbaugh for getting Bill Kristol to admit on The Daily Show that government run healthcare works.

Tuesday's episode of MSNBC's the Ed Show included a segment on the return of Michael Vick to football. PETA, the animal rights extremist group is demanding that Vick undergo a brain scan first.
