NRCC comes to its senses - Gently Ditches Dede

73wire and RedState are reporting that the NRCC is now focused on running negatives on Owens in NY-23, pulling all the pro-Scozzafava and anti-Hoffman stuff.

While I'm certainly not the first person to suggest dumping Dede, I did suggest that the "dumping" needn't be explicit, that they could just stop supporting her and let nature take its course.  So yay me.

Let's Throw A Can of Petrol Onto the Fire That Is NY-23!

Well, it appears as though moveon.org has decided to enter the fray.

From their fundraising letter:

Charlie Cook, one of the most respected political analysts in Washington, says that a Hoffman win would “shock Washington and force both parties to rethink their strategies.”4

It would dramatically strengthen the Sarah Palin wing of the Republican party. And as for the Democrats—remember how the teabaggers’ town hall disruptions rattled conservative “Blue Dog” Democrats? Imagine how hard it’ll be to pass progressive legislation if conservative Democrats spend the next year worrying that they may be unseated by people who think Medicare is socialism and President Obama isn’t a U.S. citizen.

It would be funny if it wasn’t so serious. But it is. Which is why Bill Clinton and others are working hard to raise the money Bill Owens needs to win. Local MoveOn members voted 77% to endorse Owens. But they need our help.

Most of us probably haven’t heard of this race. But it will have an impact on health care and everything else we’re fighting for. So can you spare $10 or $20 to help stop the far-right from scoring a major victory? I’m contributing. Will you join me?

Yeah, this should end well.

Have "they" gone too far?

Some school had a series of 'streakings'. Then, they caught some of the kids.

Okay, so detention? Suspension? Expulsion? Community Service?
Guess again.
one of the teenagers could be charged with criminal sexual conduct because of his nudity

A sex crime. He'll be on the sex-crimes database if they do it. Imagine him at 50 and everywhere he goes they tell his neighbors a sex-offender is moving in?

But the officials say it's a good idea
Harapat pointed out that the last football game was streaker-free.

Oh well, that's worth destroying that kid's life.
H/T I forget. Sorry.

BBC Questions Global Warming

Really, the BBC? It appears so:

This headline may come as a bit of a surprise, so too might that fact that the warmest year recorded globally was not in 2008 or 2007, but in 1998.

But it is true. For the last 11 years we have not observed any increase in global temperatures.

And our climate models did not forecast it, even though man-made carbon dioxide, the gas thought to be responsible for warming our planet, has continued to rise.

So what on Earth is going on?

Excuse me I think I hear 4 horses in the parking lot. It has to be the beginning of the end times there is just no other explanation.
