Bill Clinton Walks into a Dic...tatorship

Bill Clinton takes a trip to Korea and returns with two AZN chicks?!?

Hillary is going to be pissed.

But, seriously, folks. This cost the U.S., what, 50,000 grand total? And we didn't have to blow any shit up... specially our men and women in uniform?!?

Diplomacy. What a concept.

N. Korea Says Two U.S. Journalists Have Been Pardoned - washingtonpost.com:

"North Korea announced Tuesday that it had pardoned two detained American journalists, hours after former president Bill Clinton met in Pyongyang with reclusive dictator Kim Jong Il as part of an unannounced and highly unusual diplomatic mission to win their freedom."

Shit the pool. That's all Republicans know how to do.

Doggett undeterred by unruly right-wing mob, says he remains ‘more committed than ever’ to health reform.:

"This mob, sent by the local Republican and Libertarian parties, did not come just to be heard, but to deny others the right to be heard. And this appears to be part of a coordinated, nationwide effort. What could be more appropriate for the “party of no” than having its stalwarts drowning out the voices of their neighbors by screaming “just say no!” Their fanatical insistence on repealing Social Security and Medicare is not just about halting health care reform but rolling back 75 years of progress. I am more committed than ever to win approval of legislation to offer more individual choice to access affordable health care. An effective public plan is essential to achieve that goal."

Amazing that the traditional media is picking up on this thuggery.

Maddow does a great job reporting on the ThuGOP Life.

"Corporate lobbyist are organizing far-right hooligan tactics to disrupt civic meetings about health care reform"

And damn glad Dems are pushing back hard. Check out some of the push back in this DK diary:

Daily Kos: Calling Out the Right-Wing Noise Machine:

"This is the kind of pushback we need to hear from all Democrats.

And kudos to the reporters who have recognized what has been happening and are asking questions about it. But of course the question is, will they aggressively report on it or will they follow the lead of the New York Times and CNN's Candy Crowley and either ignore or dismiss it?"

Interesting. In America politicians trust prostitutes more than their wives... and constituents for that matter.

Chinese Trust Prostitutes More Than Politicians, Scientists

Alabama gone wild.

Troops may be deployed to Alabama county

Agreed, Allen. It is nice not having penis-envying Republicans Hulk-smashing the globe.

And cost effective, too!
