Embarrassingly Superior to Me

Crazy! Newsie people talking the sense on the TV. Does. Not. Compute.

Republicans: Masters at twisting the connotations of good, decent words into something you have to whisper.

Give the Republicans a word such as 'ice-cream' and they'll turn it into pukeshittraitor cream.

They really are that good.

"'Doesn't elite mean 'good?' Is that not something we're looking for in a president anymore? ... I know elite is a bad word in politics. You want to go bowling and throw back a few beers. But the job you're applying for---if you get it and it goes well---they might carve your head into a mountain. If you don't actually think you're better than us, then what the fuck are you doing? ... [N]ot only do I want an elite president, I want someone who is embarrassingly superior to me.'
---Jon Stewart"

New Freakin' Rule:

Real Time with Bill Maher: New Rules On Being An Elitist:

"Referring to voters who America has left behind economically as “bitter” isn’t an insult. In fact, it’s a compliment, acknowledging that they’re smart enough to understand what’s happening to them. The hopeful, now those are some idiots. So let’s separate the bitter – my people – from the idiots. If you think the Democrats are going to take away your Bible, you’re an idiot. If you think they’re going to take away your gun, you’re an armed idiot. And if you think they’re going to take away your gun and give it to a Mexican to kill your God, you’re Bill O’Reilly."

Can Bob Schieffer's comment be the final word on the Made in China, manufactured bullshit flag pin issue. Please?


Why a nation should never blindly support the military. You can support the frontline troops but never trust the leadership.

This NYT article is.... just.... BushCo has destroyed our military from every conceivable angle.

Behind Military Analysts, the Pentagon’s Hidden Hand - New York Times:

"A few expressed regret for participating in what they regarded as an effort to dupe the American public with propaganda dressed as independent military analysis.

“It was them saying, ‘We need to stick our hands up your back and move your mouth for you,’ ” Robert S. Bevelacqua, a retired Green Beret and former Fox News analyst, said."

Welcome to the no-freakin-shit club.

Pentagon institute calls Iraq war 'a major debacle' with outcome 'in doubt':

"WASHINGTON — The war in Iraq has become 'a major debacle' and the outcome 'is in doubt' despite improvements in security from the buildup in U.S. forces, according to a highly critical study published Thursday by the Pentagon's premier military educational institute."

Won't pass, but at least it is another step in the right direction. Ron Paul backed it too!

Congressman introduces bill to decriminalize personal marijuana use:

"Congressman Barney Frank today introduced bi-partisan legislation aimed at removing federal restrictions on the individual use of marijuana. One bill would remove federal penalties for the personal use of marijuana, and the other – versions of which Frank has filed in several preceding sessions of Congress – would allow the medical use of marijuana in states that have chosen to make its use for medical purposes legal with a doctor’s recommendation. Representative Ron Paul (R-TX) joined Frank as a cosponsor of the federal penalties bill. The cosponsors of the medical marijuana bill are Rep. Paul, along with Reps. Maurice Hinchey (D-NY), Dana Rohrabacher (R-CA), and Sam Farr (D-CA)."
