Normally, I save the fun stuff for the end but this is too awesome; the world can wait a few minutes to go to Hell….
Professor Krugman agrees: even when the Times does good work, it’s often still somehow lacking, like this.
Another hypocritical GOP asshole: Chuck Grassley: Votes for “death panels” then, against them now. Reason for change: no better reason than to stop Obamacare. More here. Of course, it would help the debate if the Big Media bothered to make clear at all appropriate times that one of the big objections to the public option is that in a lot of states, health insurance is a political-contribution-purchased monopoly so f course the pols there are paid to vote against competition.
But will he be happy to be a one-termer because his services to Wall Street fail to really fix the economy? You know, like despite everything he does, instead of an L-shaped downturn we get a W-shaped one with the second valley coming around 2012? Four years of recession and near-recession and relative impoverishment usually isn’t a winning platform.
Coming this Sunday: Smackdown! Maddow vs. Gregory. The freaky looking white boy hasn’t a chance, unless he games the match….
The secret of health for both mind and body is not to mourn for the past, nor to worry about the future, but to live the present moment wisely and earnestly. — Buddha
So he confesses and cries like a baby. Where’s the taking any responsibility? Apologizing for lying on so profound a level, for the dishonesty? It’s like there’s not a single GOP pol with anything remotely like true honor and this asshole was nowhere being the exception. To put it politely, he was a posturing piece of garbage. But that goes back to when he was screwing his puta behind all our backs. An awful little man.
Why are facilities associated with rightist organizations and the such never bombed or attacked but lefty facilities such as abortion clinics and the offices of diversity organizations are? What’s that say about the right? That the lefties fail to incite their followers like Rush and O’Reilly do theirs? Is this some sort of proof that the wingnuts are truly sick, that they only condemn the violence after they successfully incite it? And Professor K got this right: The wingnuts will rise again, sure as Obama will re-inflate the speculation bubble. (And he’s right about this too but his periodic optimism hasn’t helped.)
Michael Jackson’s death means little to me — I mean, my world, already spinning at an accelerated rate, didn’t stop for his death (slowed a little bit momentarily for Farrah’s though) — but I do hope he’s finally at peace, His life, at the end of the day, must have been a troubled one, particularly the last five or ten years when he went from supremely talented musician and performer to gossip industry freak show.
I totally can’t figure out whether this is worth sharing….
Another sick fuck heard from. Shame on whoever givesthe National Review for giving him a platform. Oh wait, he’s clearly sponsored by people who despise this nation….
Did inherited wealth save Ford? When you rely on a company for long-term health for long-term wealth…. But then, there are the former owners of the Wall Street Journal. But, of course, they lost faith… and may yet get the last laugh….
Obama’s radical health reform doesn’t have any public alternative. Reform looks more like a health insurer windfall act with a few goodies for the medical professionals. You know, rewarding and therefore encouraging bad behavior like TARP bailouts and credit card reform (latter only lacked the most important benefit, to wit, a cap on crushing interest rates). (More financial failure noted here. Obama’s latest failure is here.) Dunno who Obama’s leading with all his popularity but it sure aren’t the Dems in Congress.
