Dana Milbank - Washington Sketch: Republicans Behaving Badly at Obama Speech - '

"The national debate, already raw for years, had coarsened over the summer as town hall meetings across the country dissolved into protests about 'death panels' and granny-killing. Guns were brought to Obama appearances. A pastor in Arizona said he was praying for Obama to die.

But even by that standard, there was something appalling about the display on the House floor for what was supposed to be a sacred ritual of American democracy: the nation watching while Cabinet members, lawmakers from both chambers and the diplomatic corps assembled."

This is how we do it.

Opponent of ‘You Lie’ Rep. raises $96,000 overnight:

"The opponent of GOP Rep. Joe Wilson (R-SC), who yelled 'You lie!' at President Barack Obama during his speech to Congress on healthcare, has raised more than $96,000 from online donors since Wednesday evening.

ActBlue, a liberal advocacy group, posted an appeal for Wilson opponent Rob Miller, a Democrat. Within hours, online donors flooded the site, leaving the Republican's Democratic opponent flush with new campaign cash overnight.

A spokesman for ActBlue tells RAW STORY that Miller has raised 'north of $96,000' since Wilson's outburst Wednesday."


Recorded sex comments cost Calif. lawmaker his job - Yahoo! News:

"The Orange County Republican is now a YouTube hit after KCAL-TV aired his racy comments about sexual conquests that were caught by an open microphone in a Capitol hearing room. Several media outlets said the comments referred to Duvall's affairs with a female lobbyist and another woman. He resigned Wednesday."

A'merika. Fuck Yeah!

Free market, bitches.

Walmart's Project Impact: A Move to Crush Competition - Yahoo! News:
"Thus, the company is in the beginning stages of a massive store and strategy remodeling effort, which it has dubbed Project Impact. One goal of Project Impact is cleaner, less cluttered stores that will improve the shopping experience. Another is friendlier customer service. A third: home in on categories where the competition can be killed. 'They've got Kmart ready to take a standing eight-count next year,' says retail consultant Burt Flickinger III, managing director for Strategic Resources Group and a veteran Walmart watcher. 'Same with Rite Aid. They've knocked out four of the top five toy retailers, and are now going after the last one standing, Toys 'R' Us. Project Impact will be the catalyst to wipe out a second round of national and regional retailers.' (See 10 things to buy during the recession.)

Though that's bad news for many smaller businesses that can't compete, Walmart investors have clamored for this push. Despite the company's consistently strong financial performance, Wall Street hasn't cheered Walmart's growth rates. During the 1990s, the company's stock price jumped 1,173%. In this decade, it's down around 24% (Walmart's stock closed at $51.74 per share on Sept. 3). 'Walmart is under excruciating pressure from employees and frustrated institutional investors to get the stock up,' says Flickinger."
