The secret of eternal youth is arrested development. — Alice Roosevelt Longworth
Palm Sunday special: Jew returns to Judaism after an unfulfilling sojurn worshipping Jesus. And the piece is not as stupid as you think. This is someone with actual beliefs, not a Kool-Aid drinker.
Iraq. Justified at last. Not. To paraphrase Ronnie Raygun, Iraqis, are you better off now than you were ten years ago?
Beneficiaries of the Socialist Welfare State: The hypocritical stooges of the corporatist leadership, the Teabaggers. Me, I’m sure fighting against the benefits you’re receiving and the nation and states that provide them, is a rock solid reason to cut off all benefits, starting with health insurance. I mean really, why should our tax dollars go to people trying to ruin our nation? Did I say they are proven sickos? And punk racists. And of course the rest of the Republicans are quite nearly as sick. Again, just about the whole party and all their enablers are sick. I’ll make it simpler: There is no excuse for any of this kind of behavior. None.
Lesson from George Walker Bush: After touching a Black person, one must wipe one’s hand:
One stop “shopping”: Just go here for a huge bunch of pieces about a bunch of nutjobs that make up our nation’s leadership; a shame. I just don’t have the energy to list them all… too much insanity…. Just remember, these aren’t jokes, they’re people actually ru[i]ning things….
Can Obama be doing something else right?
Watch President Palin heckled at McCain rally. I watched a little bit of it, without sound, and I must say she looks like an utter retard.
Bob Herbert explains to us dumbies what the Republicans have to offer this nation:
For decades the G.O.P. has been the party of fear, ignorance and divisiveness. All you have to do is look around to see what it has done to the country. The greatest economic inequality since the Gilded Age was followed by a near-total collapse of the overall economy. As a country, we have a monumental mess on our hands and still the Republicans have nothing to offer in the way of a remedy except more tax cuts for the rich.
This is the party of trickle down and weapons of mass destruction, the party of birthers and death-panel lunatics. This is the party that genuflects at the altar of right-wing talk radio, with its insane, nauseating, nonstop commitment to hatred and bigotry.
It should not be news to those who watched the fucker’s career but the current pope was a professional scumbag while at the Vatican, if not longer (my recollection doesn’t go that far back), and, if I recall, an opportunistic little Nazi during WWII. His election to pope was something he worked for for years; simple politics successfully executed. So this is no surprise to those watching. And Matt Taibbi weighs in.
Asshole: New Hampshire State Rep. Nick Levasseur has apologized for saying, “Anime is a prime example of why two nukes just wasn’t enough,” on Facebook:
Who needs the old media if this is pretty much the level of crap they deliver? Meanwhile, bankruptcy courts give four publishers a little breathing room. All they need to do now is relearn what to publish to attract an audience back and, you know, become relevant.
Lordy, how quickly Rupert’s sending the Wall Street Journal down the toilet. Read about the latest here.
