I'm Sorry. So Sorry.

A very special message from Kos to the media:

Daily Kos: Memo to the media:

"Dear media,

95 percent of Americans are getting a tax cut with Obama's budget. So framing this as a tax hike makes you look pretty stupid. And dishonest. And wrong. So stop it.

Hugs and kisses,


Now THIS is how you apologize to Rush.

DownWithTyranny!: BREAKING NEWS: Alan Grayson Apologizes To Rush Limbaugh:

"Late this afternoon, in keeping with apologies to Rush Limbaugh from Georgia Republican Phil Gingrey and RNC Chairman Michael Steele, Rep. Alan Grayson (D-FL) issued the following statement:

“I’m sorry Limbaugh called for harsh sentences for drug addicts while he was a drug addict. I’m also sorry that he’s bent on seeing America fail. And I’m sorry that Limbaugh is one sorry excuse for a human being.”

The Congressman then rejoined his Democratic colleagues in working on cleaning up George W. Bush’s mess."

Electronic voting machines with a delete button.


The Raw Story | Diebold voting system sported 'delete' button: report:

"Zetter continues, 'But the most startling information in the state's 13-page report (.pdf) is not about why the system lost votes, which Threat Level previously covered in detail, but that some versions of Diebold's vote tabulation system, known as the Global Election Management System (GEMS), include a button that allows someone to delete audit logs from the system.'"

Thank god we haven't had another terrorist attack on our soil since 9/11..... oh, wait....

I like the cut of this young lady's jib.

911 McNuggets Call: Latreasa L. Goodman Calls 911 3 Times Over McNuggets "Emergency" (VIDEO):

"Police were not buying Latreasa L. Goodman's definition of emergency after she called 911 three times to report that her local McDonald's was out of chicken nuggets. Goodman had paid for her 10-piece McNuggets but was then informed by the employees that the restaurant had run out. Goodman claims she was refused a refund and felt it rose to the level of a 911 emergency. Police have charged Goodman with misusing 911."

Nice 'boy meets girl' short film.

i say bravo to the 911 McNugget lady -- finally somebody's fighting back against that dastardly fast food industry, which is obviously set on destroying us with their addictive, tasty trans fats and dollar menus...
