The Republicans say taking prayer out of public schools leads to violence. But they offer no evidence, and cannot point to a more peaceful world when prayer was allowed.
This morning, Malia Litman (owner of MaliaLitman's "A Rebuttal to the Rogue" blog) alerted PoliticusUSA that she had uncovered a rather large lie Sarah Palin has been peddling to the American public. Litman did an exhaustive investigation which revealed that Palin has been fooling the American people about a fundamental aspect of who she is as a person.
On today’s (September 17) edition of Fox News' Fox & Friends, Geraldo points out O’Donnell has no qualifications for office. This moment of sanity doesn’t go over well with the Fox game show hosts and the infomercial hostesses, who are super busy trying to sell the oldsters some Christine O’Donnell as a “common sense conservative”.
In an interview with Jon Stewart on The Daily Show last night former President Bill Clinton explained and broke down the true purpose of the Tea Party. Clinton said that Tea Partiers are pawns in a game and, "The people that are funding this Tea Party are trying to weaken the government... so that they can have unaccountable private power."
Christine O’Donnell is an extremist who believes that a wife should be subservient to her husband. What I find most hypocritical about this, however, isn’t the fact that she and Palin are trying to sell women being subservient as the “new feminism”, but that at the very same time they are touting this kind of good girl routine, sucking up to the patriarchs with their winks and cheerleader smiles, they are also engaging in highly emasculating behavior.
Sarah Palin is learning that Fox News and all of its media outlets can be quite the fickle mistress as evidence by Kimberly Guilfoyle's Fox News Radio appearance where she basically touted Christine O'Donnell as the new Sarah Palin, "She is really becoming an engaging compelling figure. I think she definitely got a little bit of Sarah Palin appeal to her."
Palin went all Tea Party gangsta on Karl Rove for Rove's accurate analysis of the threat O'Donnell poses the GOP's big dreams of taking the senate back this fall. Tonight on the The O'Reilly Factor, Palin called Karl out, issuing a few body blows to the Great White Thug in round one of the battle for the helm of the GOP.
Vice President Joe Biden gave one of his best interviews since he has been in the White House on Rachel Maddow's MSNBC program, where he expressed why progressives need to get energized about this election, "Our progressive base, you have, you should not stay home. It, you better get energized. Because the consequences are serious for the outcome of the things we care most about."
I'm gonna go out on a limb here and suggest to my new pals in the Tea Party that we start pushing Christine O'Donnell for President!
After all, Christine has never quit her job. She's hotter than Palin, younger than Palin, and she puts the cute in cute. Plus, while she doesn't know anything, at least she has no ethics violations under her belt. Sure, she's using campaign funds to pay rent and that ain't legal, but really, who cares? She hasn't been busted yet, and even if she is, we can just lie and say she hasn't been.
During election season arguments fly fast and furious. It can be hard to keep up; it can be hard to know what/who to believe. But if you listen carefully, you will find that the Republican narrative has made clear that Republicans don’t know what an argument is.
With the money, the polling and the endorsements breaking her way, it is no surprise that Christine O'Donnell was able to beat Rep. Mike Castle in the Delaware U.S. Senate primary, but polling and modeling shows that Sarah Palin and the Tea Party have taken a likely November victory away from the GOP and quite possibly handed control of the Senate to the Democrats.
The National Federation of Republican Women (NFRW) held its annual fall Board of Directors meeting in Charleston, S.C. last weekend and naturally, trouble ensued. Of the Confederate kind. And the tax-payers paid for this little shindig. Nothing like celebratin’ slavery to say “freedom and liberty”, eh?
With the news that the NFL is investigating a claim by TV Azteca reporter Ines Sainz that she was sexually harassed by members of the NY Jets organization, Glenn Beck and Rush Limbaugh have both weighed in and decided that Sainz deserved because of the shirt she wore and according to Limbaugh she is,"bootylicious."
Having trouble talking sense to your Republican neighbors and friends? Have no fear, Yuri is here.
Yuri Hertzberg of the San Fransisco Chronicle was fed up trying to talk about the facts behind the issues with his conservative friends, so he came up with a rather ingenious way of forcing an open mind. The trick is making an analogy to purchasing something innocuous like dish soap and then secondly, hiding the party names and just presenting the record.
These are dark days, festering with fear and deliberate manipulation of the masses into a frenzied rage against “the other”. But there are some voices speaking out against politicized hate; voices speaking out for the power of love, tolerance and acceptance. Their names may not be as recognizable as say, Frank Schaeffer, who is also doing plenty to speak out against hate as espoused by the modern day evangelical movement, but they are committed to peace and dialogue.
More and more, Republicans insist on creating a fantasy world that has nothing in common with the reality in which we all operate. They invent something, and then invent “facts” to support the fantasy tale. It’s all as true as a prince rescuing the princess in her tower from a dragon.
But it’s two years later and finally, the press begins their push-back, albeit local press from Missoula, Montana (aka: Real America), who may be stunned to find themselves on the accused end of Palin’s ceaseless witch hunt against the dissemination of information. This is not the Real American Mama Grizzly they thought they knew. No, indeed, Dorothy. These are dark days.
This morning on MSNBC's "Morning Joe" Joe Scarborough and team of analysts laughed hysterically at Newt Gingrich's birther statements regarding our President. They tried to stop, and even went so far as to read Newt's entire quote to make sure he wasn't being quoted out of context, but his entire statement was even more crazy. Hilarity ensued as the entire panel laughed at Newt.
Former part-time Alaskan Governor Sarah Palin has repeatedly demonstrated her lack of knowledge about...well, almost everything, really. If there is an antidote to the European Enlightenment, which threw back the darkness of the Middle Ages and gave birth to the United States of America, it is Sarah Palin. She is to knowledge what kryptonite is to Superman. She is anti-knowledge.
The newest Pew Research Center's survey of where and how people get their news has been released, and while Fox News is still polling the oldest viewership, Stephen Colbert and Jon Stewart are pulling the youngest. As Stewart educates his young viewers in the ways of FNC on a nightly basis, it is clear that he is the biggest long term media threat to Fox News.
