Tonight's Featured Artist "Anthrax"

Here they are doing "ONLY" My favorite tune from them.

Bobby Jindal busted for lying.

You remember that nice little story ol' Bobby Jindal told us about Sheriff Lee and the rescue boats? Turns out that was bullshit.

What's funny is that it was central to Jindal's premise, which I guess, is the government is the problem, never a solution. And Bobby felt he needed to lie to make the case.

TPM: Jindal admits lying

Ya' know Bobby Jindal, now that you bring up those volcano detectors...

...I wonder what they, the dead at Pompeii, would say about it. It's all fun and games until that natural disaster comes calling right?

Hmmm....this puts a nail in the "blame the victim" argument from the GOP-

I luvs me some freepers...

From SolidWood at Free Republic:

...I agree that his age, 38, may be a disadvantage at this point in his career, but he has a great future ahead of him. As my tagline suggests, IMO there are three bright lights in the Conservative movement today :
*BOBBY JINDAL* SARAH PALIN * ERIC CANTOR *. If you can find me a good solid Conservative Republican who actually has experience, and has a chance to get elected, I will support him or her.
Freeper-Jindal/Palin flame war

Two of those bright lights don't even believe in evolution. And Cantor's big idea is to imitate Newt Gingrich-a guy who resigned in disgrace.

I am so looking forward to 2010 and 2012.

TGIF open thread

This a free rant and rave thread to post on. Write about whatever you feel like.

Alan Keyes goes Wingnutty!!!

Meanwhile at the RNC, Steele says they need to be more "hip hop."

NYTIMES:Steele says "fo shizzle we need rizzle"

“We want to convey that the modern-day G.O.P. looks like the conservative party that stands on principles,” Mr. Steele said. “But we want to apply them to urban-suburban hip-hop settings.”

Sure that's the problem-MARKETING!


Check out the new blinged out RNC logo! Word to the G-Oh-P beeyotches!

Let's talk about it: The NY Post's [dumb racist] chimp cartoon

Yesterday, the NY Post ran a cartoon of police shooting a chimp with the caption "they'll have to find someone else to write the next stimulus bill".

Um, what does Travis the chimp have to do with the stimulus bill? Did he have some input into it? I must've missed that memo. Or are they trying to say that the stimulus package was written by a chimp? Can chimps even write?

OR are they insinuating that our President is a chimpanzee? Is he hairy? Does he like to swing from trees? I did not notice- maybe I missed that memo, too?

OR is the NY Post staffed by a bunch of hillbilly racists? I think thats the most likely reason this piece was ran and it makes me SICK. I am sick not only that someone would draw such an offensive cartoon but also sick that it got approved by the editors and publicists and anyone else who saw it before it hit the presses.

Yes, racism is alive and well in the United States and it makes me sick to my stomach and embarrassed to be an American.

Am I wrong? Can this "cartoon" be anything other than racist? Is there some correlation between Travis the Chimp and the stimulus bill????????????????


Mr Bold adds-

The NY Post is a Rupert Murdoch rag, and he can't give that crap away. No really. I get hit up for a free month of daily propoganda from these people at least once a week.

The cartoonist, Sean Delonas, has a history of tacky cartoons that only racists and homophobes could love.

And this might be a good time to review "How To Tell People They Sound Racist."

Frontline:Inside the Meltdown

A word about political correctness...

I just read a good comment at SadlyNo! and thought I'd share:

Seriously, and this goes for every two-bit “comedian” who pisses and moans about “political correctness” when no one laughs at their fag jokes, if it’s too hard for you to work around basic human decency - which is still a fairly new concept - maybe you should move into a new line of work. Fuckin’ crybaby.

Matt T.

I feel the same way. Every time I hear someone bitching about political correctness and then I ask them, "What don't you think you can say?" and they proceed to tell some lame ass joke that predates women's suffrage.

I'm glad these idiots are getting more and more marginalized.

It's a hump day open thread ya'll.

You can rant and rave about whatever you want to here.

Suggested topics for discussion-

Was Hitler really breast fed past toddler stage?

What's the most effective way to get a teenage boy's mind off of sex and into school work?

These are just some of the burning topics demanding discussion. Goofiest comment should get a reward.

It should...didn't say it will.

Maybe you missed this first time around...

Here's an article with some age on it, but it is still relevant to understanding the Conservative mentality-
CommonDreamsStudy of Bush's Psyche Touches a Nerve

This was written before I started really surfing the web.

Senator Kit Bond-what an asshole.

Kit Bond on 02/10/09-

“Unfortunately, this bill stimulates the debt, it stimulates the growth of government, but it doesn’t stimulate jobs,” Bond said. “More important, it doesn’t provide the basic need we have in this country to deal with the problems we have in the home industry and the credit market.”


Senator Kit Bond subsequently voted no the bill.

And now today:
“This is the type of emergency stimulus spending we should be supporting – programs that will create jobs now and help families,” said Bond."

Kit Bond-press release

I guess voting against a bill is how Republicans support the bill. As I said before, Conservatives just love this country to death.

Tales from the American Taliban

Did any of you hear this story?

BELFAST, Maine — James G. Cummings, who police say was shot to death by his wife two months ago, allegedly had a cache of radioactive materials in his home suitable for building a “dirty bomb.”

BangorNews article

He was a Conservative so upset that Obama won that he decided to build a dirty bomb with all the radioactive do-dahs and do-hickies.

I can just imagine this guy. He was probably one of those self described self made Conservatives who railed against the welfare state and earned all the money he got. Of course in reality all his money came from daddy-

Cummings grew up in California and lived in Texas before moving to Maine in August 2007. Although Robbins said Cummings told him he made his money in Texas real estate, it appears that the actual source of his wealth was a trust fund established by his father, a prominent landowner in the Northern California city of Fort Bragg. An Internet search of the James B. Cummings Trust indicated that it has an annual income of $10 million.

Conservatives-they love America to death.

Happy 200th Birthday Charles Darwin!

200 years ago today Charles Darwin was born in Shrewsbury England. His idea, that nature through selecting of mutations for reproduction is responsible for the biodiversity we see today, has become the foundation for modern biology. And he managed to piss off the people I like to piss off, the Xian fundies, for a hundred years.

From the BBC-

It's an open thread ya'll

Feel free to rant and rave about whatever...

OK I might have been wrong about this...

When the RNC picked former Lt. Governor Steele from Maryland to head the RNC, I thought, "Hey they did something smart for once!" Out of all the choices they had running, Steele came off as the most sane and nicer of the candidates. I've seen Steele on Bill Maher, where although wingnutty, he seemed good natured.

Well I don't think being good natured can overcome this kind of wingnutty:

STEELE: You've got to look at what's going to create sustainable jobs. What this administration is talking about is making work. It is creating work.

STEPHANOPOULOS: But that's a job.

STEELE: No, it's not a job. A job is something that -- that a business owner creates. It's going to be long term. What he's creating...

HuffPo: steele-confuses-stephanopolis

Our federal government employs 2.7 million people which included at one point RNC Chairman Steele.

Is Joe the Plumber the Ted McGinley of American Politics?

Let's hope so. Because like every sitcom that Ted McGinley shows up on, Joe's patrons seem to get canceled too.

Joe showed up for McCain. Canceled.

Joe showed up for PajamasTV as a war correspondent covering Gaza. Gaza over. PajamasTV sucking and shedding viewers fast.

Joe just signed on for spinning the stimulus package for the GOP. Will that mean the end of the GOP is nigh?
