...when the President's own official store turns an embarrassing gaffe into a selling point for merchandise, well, that's a little bit different, now, isn't it? A little bit different and oh so classy.
Let's imagine this was a Bush/Cheney thing, huh? Yeah.

Yeah. I'm convinced that what they're saying is TOTALLY in our best interests.
Update: Well, sure, this guy is someone we should be listening to about the conservative movement, huh?
And he tries to say that the Dems aren't in bed with any media organizations with a straight face. Are they even trying anymore?

Here's a clue: Gibbsy is a fan, eh.

Nope. For conservatives and the GOP because (shocka!) we didn't compromise enough for his liking with Teh Won.
And he titled it "Waterloo."
Oh, and talk radio and Sarah Palin and Fox News are all terrible, too, according to this fraud, so we should all turn away from them and, well, elect people like The Twat, I guess.

The Healthcare bill WILL pass. It will be signed. Also, the Supreme Court will NOT overturn it based on the "Slaughter" situation because the Court generally will avoid any interference with how the legislative branch accomplishes its "voting" on bills.
So, I think its time we start game planning for what we do next. Constitutionality of the insurance mandate? State resistance? Riot?
Update: This comment got out of control so here it is in an update...
1) It isn't my job to motivate you.
2) You being motivated will have literally 0 impact on whether a bunch of crapweasel Democrats do what they want to do instead of what they think they need to do to keep their jobs.
3) Eat my shit.
4) If I or you or anyone in the American electorate had ANY power in the matter I'd be in front of the line screaming and fucking pushing those fucktards toward the correct decision but they have CLEARLY decided that what the public WANTS is irrelevant. They're going for it. The goals of the socialist party can finally be realized and if a few heads have to roll, it'll be okay. They've set the self destruct mechanism and killed the only guy with the code.
Its just a matter of how shiteously they rape the Constitution before they're done. Hopefully they are egregious enough to motivate the populace into supporting a complete undoing of this piece of shit. Probably by two years into the higher taxes with no benefits the economy will be so unbelievably fucked up that it'll be destroyed.
But this bill this week? Passing. Get used to the idea. Its like when people say "Iran won't nuke us because they'll be destroyed." That stupid statement only makes sense when Iran is a rational actor. The Democrats, similarly, aren't rational actors so it will be equally invalid as an argument.
And if that won't stop them, then go ahead and tell me what will. I can't think of anything we have to offer that they want more than this.

Quoth St. Andrew's reader (who totally isn't one of the voices in his head):
First, the voices on the right advocating opposition will have to account for their failing. Second, Obama will gain more leeway and tolerance from the middle-of-the-road voter, further strengthening his hand. In effect, succeeding grants Obama the right to move even slower in the future, as it suits him. Trust is (re)born.Riiiiiiiight. If this hugely unpopular bill gets rammed through, everything will be FUCKING AWESOME for Obama and a disaster for the GOP. Because they failed somehow to stop a gigantic, expensive overhaul of the nation's health insurance system. And if the Dems ram this piece of shit through, Obama gets to claim victories when his deadlines expire. Because...um, shut up, that's why.
Oh, and what does the sage of "The Conservative Soul" have to say in response?
Do what you can to get healthcare passed. Yeah. I'm talking to you. Call your congressman and Senator. Organize.Yeah.

I was so angry, I actually wrote down in MS-Word (fuck you, MS-Word!) a response that I was itching to give to this person, should he choose to reappear. Sadly, the guy did not, and I now can't find the response (fuck you, My Mad Computer Haxxor Skillz!), but it was passionate. I was and continue to be angry that people with whom I share a common bond (opposing leftism) and a Fake Internet Friendship were told they were not worthy of consideration based not on their political views, but on the fact their sexuality is different than his.
Fuck that. Fuck it with a Roast Beef Combo with rocket AIDS in place of au jus. While this is not my site, I do not look kindly upon somebody coming along and demeaning my friends and cohorts. I will not tolerate those who wish to go beyond legitimate political debate and into bigotry directed at or about my friends. I fucking look at people based on whether or not they are decent people, share my views, and just want to be left the fuck alone by the Nannyarchy, and not other things. Maybe I am wrong and naive, but fuck it. I just don't like seeing any of my friends hurt.
And since I can't duplicate what I wrote, please allow me to present an audio visual portrayal of how to handle people who are assholes.

Far from the divisive caricature painted by some cable news outlets [Some? I don't seem to remember any net but Fox News mentioning teh crazee that is Van Jones, but I guess you'd rather not mention them by name, especially since you're writing this for Completelyignored News Network--ed], Van has been one of America's most effective and inspiring bridge-builders. He has successfully brought together labor leaders, business executives, civil rights champions, students and environmentalists to find creative solutions to the ecological and economic crises. His efforts earned him designation as a Young Global Leader by the World Economic Forum in 2004.Not mentioned anywhere in the article is Jones's trooferism. What a shock.

A Seattle fortune company cookie has unveiled a line of cookies bearing messages on behalf of the U.S. Census Bureau.Yes, really. They're actually spending money—your money—to put Census crap in fucking fortune cookies.
At this point, I wouldn't be surprised if they've come up with some kind of program to hire high school kids to stand next to everyone's mailboxes on weekends, twirling those stupid arrow signs that property managers normally use to point people toward condos for sale.

I have to say I fear her. Or, rather, I fear a country that has allowed such a person to come so close to power and to dominate its discourse quite so powerfully. It is a sign that all is not well.You might want to take some medication, there, Andrew. And, even if the medical marijuana clinics are legal there in P-Town, something from the pharmaceutical industry might help.

Fuck you, Pat Robertson. Fuck you with the blood money you collected and the Book of Ruth. And fuck you for being such a fucking sleazeball who worked to keep thugs in power and lobby on their behalf.
Former Liberian President Charles Taylor, testifying in his own war crimes trial today, said that the American conservative evangelist Pat Robertson was awarded a Liberian gold-mining concession in 1999 and subsequently offered to lobby the Bush administration to support his government.
The revelations came in the midst of a U.N.-backed trial of Taylor at The Hague on 11 counts of war crimes and crimes against humanity during Sierra Leone's 1990s civil war. Taylor is accused of directing a Sierra Leone rebel group, the United Revolutionary Front (RUF), in a campaign aimed at securing access to the country's diamond mines. The rebel movement stands accused of committing mass atrocities in the late 1990s in the West African country, including the mutilation of thousands of civilians.
The international prosecutors contend that Taylor offered concessions to Western individuals in exchange for lobbying work aimed at enhancing his image in the United States. The prosecution maintains that Taylor also spent $2.6 million on lobbying firms and public relations outfits in the hopes of influencing the policies of former President Bill Clinton and George W. Bush.
Under cross-examination, Taylor said that Robertson had volunteered to make Liberia's case before U.S. administration officials, and had spoken directly to President Bush about Taylor. He also confirmed that Robertson's company, Freedom Gold Limited, signed an agreement to exploit gold in southeastern Liberia, but that it never generated any profit.
Seriously, lobbying on behalf of third world thugs in exchange for gold mining rights? What the fuck? This shit is fucking bad enough when a regular citizen does it, but when a man of the cloth does it? Last time I fucking checked, clergy were supposed to be looking out for the souls of folks, not pocketing blood money in exchange for anything.
Ugh. I could ignore some of Robertson's foolish comments about a lot of things, but working on behalf of a guy like Taylor? Fuck. No.

I suppose it's true, lawyers don't have to actually make any sense.
Rick Strandlof may have lied about being a decorated Iraq War veteran, but those lies are protected by the First Amendment, according to his attorney and a civil liberties organization.
He is accused of posing as "Rick Duncan," a wounded Marine captain who received a Purple Heart and a Silver Star. Strandlof used that persona to found the Colorado Veterans Alliance and solicit funds for the organization.
Rutherford Institute attorney Douglas McKusick argues that Strandlof's lies did not "inflict harm" upon the medals he lied about or debase the meaning of the medals for the veterans who actually earned them.
