Who Lies and Who Speaks the Truth? The Results Are In.

I do not for a minute excuse the Democrats for not being truthful when speaking to the media and to their constituents, but anyone who has any idea of what's really going on in our country knew that this would be the way an objective analysis would turn out. If you haven't bookmarked Politifact, do so. It will astound you.

Here's a Good Look Into the Soul of the Tea Party

Meet Danita Kilcullen, a co-founder of the Tea Party in Florida. This photo was taken a couple of years ago after she had kicked a policeman. More recently, an email from this dear lady surfaced in which she raved against the new law forbidding discrimination in the workplace. Ms. Kilcullen's electronic rant ended with the thought that she resented the notion that the government could demand that she had to hire "a man in a dress… or some butch-looking female."

Isn't she a sweetheart!

Ain't It the Damn Truth, Though!


National disgrace number 3,427 ... seems like.

Actually, it's not her so much -- the comic relief is sometimes welcome -- it's the people who actually believe what she says.

Where Can I Find That Petition for Texas Secession?

"We started gittin' pointy-headed folks like that runnin' fer office 'cause we been teachin' Critical Thinkin' in our public schools. Thank the Lord the Texas Board of Education done outlawed that class."   (That's not a joke, folks. )

Can You Think of a More Disgraceful Decision?

Actually, yes, I can. How about Citizens United? What were these people thinking??

Mostly Nothing ... But There Is An Occasional Something.

Full speed ahead when it comes to restrictive voter ID laws!

Ignorance and Arrogance ... A Dangerous Combination.

But shame on the Republican candidates who cave in to these loonies!

Do Not Disturb: The Speaker of the House is on Vacation.

Boehner deserves a rest. Presiding over a House that voted FORTY TIMES to repeal the Affordable Care Act (aka Obamacare) must have been exhausting.

Better Late Than Never … I Guess.

The New York Times has an interesting story today about Ken Mehlman, who was one of the key political strategists for George W. Bush’s re-election campaign in 2004.

That was the year the Republicans got the issue of gay marriage on the ballot in a lot of the swing states in order to turn out their base … the theory being the would vote against gay marriage and for “Dubya”.  It worked, too.

And now we learn that Mehlman is gay, has come out of the closet, and is urging the Republican Party to accept gay marriage. That story prompted some wonderful comments in the Times, but of those I read, this was the best:

Yet another conservative taking the liberal position on the one issue that hits close to home.
McCain, on torture. Rubio, on immigration. Cheney, and this guy, on gay marriage. Ryan, on his family government contract business issues. Jindal, on hurricane relief. 

And so it goes.

Shallow News Reporting for All

I wonder what Ted Turner thinks of the "reporting" these days on his brainchild, CNN. Once upon a time, it was the place to go for immediate coverage of hard news. Now ... ?

Good Question!!

The great mystery of our times is how can roughly half the voting population of this country can support a political party that advocates so many positions that simply defy rational thinking.

Of course he's against it. Bump the Minimum Wage to nine bucks and the cost of a Big Mac would go up by 3 or 4 cents at least!

Pretty Hard to Argue with Mr. Buffet, isn't it.

Well, I've neglected this spot for far too long. Just been preoccupied with other activities. Anyway, I spotted this early this morning and thought it worth posting.
