Sexy Weed

If you didn't see it, watch Stewart hand Cramer his ass.

Stewart to Cramer: 'It's not a f**king game'

Don't they do this in China? Isn't China a Communist country? Wouldn't this be a form of socialism?

Oh, Newt.

Pay teenagers not to get pregnant, Republican says:

"The man who dubbed Vice President Joe Biden a socialist last September for arguing that paying taxes is 'patriotic' appears to have some government redistribution ideas of his own.

Newt Gingrich, often cited as a Republican prospect for president in 2012, says the state should consider paying teenager girls not to get pregnant."

Typical rough day for a Republican.

Getting his ass beaten with a guitar is a nice twist.

Police report: Skoien with two prostitutes :: CHICAGO SUN-TIMES :: Chicago Crime:

"Inverness Police say former Cook County Republican Chairman Gary Skoien admitted having two prostitutes in his children’s playroom when his wife walked in on him early Sunday morning.

The allegation is in a domestic battery report from Skoien, 55, against his 36-year-old, 5-foot-4-inch, 110-pound wife. He said she beat him with her fists and an electric guitar."

I was wondering about all of those vapors wafting from North Alabama.

"Great Sex" Sermons Cause Controversy In Alabama:

"GOOD HOPE, Ala. — It's one thing for a church in a big city like Dallas or Atlanta to tackle the ticklish topic of sex. It blends in with the urban scene.

It's another thing when a small-town congregation puts up billboards with the phrase 'Great sex: God's way' on rural highways to promote a sermon series. You can't even legally buy beer in Cullman County, and a preacher is talking about S-E-X on Sunday morning?

Daystar Church, whose congregation has grown dramatically under pastor Jerry Lawson, has run up against the sensibilities of a conservative north Alabama community with a monthlong focus on sex."
_______

Move to Oregon?

'Socialize' it? Oregon may grow, tax and sell medical marijuana:

"In most states, the issue of medical marijuana is not on any legislative docket.

In Oregon however, a state which already allows medical marijuana, socializing the weed is being pitched as a bipartisan cause celebre.

Maybe socializing is the wrong word.

'House Bill 3247 would direct the state to establish and operate a marijuana production facility,' reported Oregon's KGW-TV. 'The state would control potency and pharmacy distribution.'"

How do you make Ron Paul seem less bat shit crazy? Pair him with Stephen Baldwin.

Now don't get me wrong, Paul has some very reasoned, progressive/libertarian ideas that I agree with, one being the repeal of marijuana prohibition. Paul and I are good-good on that one.

It is only his economic/foreign policy/loving the religious fundies hypocrisy that makes him oh so bat shit crazy.

Ron Paul: Congress 'drinks a lot of alcohol' but won't legalize pot

Gold standard! Ron Paul loves him some gold standard! An even better summary of his record in Congress from the always thorough Orcinus.
