Monkey See, Monkey Fling Do-Do

Wow! FAUX New's lying finally becomes news?!? What a world.

Fox News again accused of airing misleading video - Yahoo! News:

"For the second time in just over a week, Fox News is coming under fire for misusing old news footage. The latest flap is leading some people to charge that the cable news network is intentionally misleading its audience, while Fox claims a 'production error.'"

The most terrifying thing you'll read all day.

Daily Kos: Don't Get Palin's Appeal? Try a Little Harder:

"Each time I read a diary or a comment that wonders out loud how someone as 'stupid' as Sarah Palin could be appealing to anyone, I shake my head in disbelief.

In 2004, this website was clogged up with comments and diaries about another politician most people believed to be 'too stupid,' to succeed. 'How can anyone be a supporter of someone so stupid? Someone who sounds so dumb and has done so many stupid things?'

Then, after that 'stupid' guy was re-elected, the Democratic Party went into an identity crisis tail spin.

Have we forgotten all this? Apparently we have.

Still don't get Sarah Palin's appeal? Try a little harder and you will."

Because, how do you reach through the painful stupid of these people and bring them to the light? I just don't know and that really bothers me.

They are going to believe what they want to believe, facts be damned.


And they are so fucking angry about.... well, something all the time that they even turn on V-PILF.

These folks do not live in the land of reason.

Video of Angry Wingnuts Booing Sarah Palin, Calling Her a “Quitter” & Chanting “Sign Our Books” | Rumproast

Teabaggers just aren’t happy about anything these days. I guess the Noblesville, Indiana Going Rogue book signing didn’t go very well yesterday because 300* or so of the 1000 people with wristbands were asked not to tread on Sarah Palin and then she tried to make a getaway with Baby Trig and several duffel bags full of cash but wingnuts have learned to protest about everything these days, so they were having none of it. This is the best thing you will see about horrible, horrible Sarah Palin on the internets all day and until the end of time.

Amen, Conyers.

Conyers Rips Obama, Emanuel For 'Bowing Down' To GOP On Health Care

Health reform's human stories - Countdown with Keith Olbermann-

New Orleans, La. — - It happened as I watched a 50-something woman walk out, after spending several hours being attended to by volunteer doctors. "She's decided against treatment. A reasonable decision under the circumstances," the doctor tells us as she heads for the next patient. The president of the board of the National Association of Free Health Clinics tells me why: "It's stage four breast cancer, her body is filled with tumors." I don't know when that woman last saw a doctor. But I do know that if she had health insurance, the odds she would have seen a doctor long ago are much higher, and her chances for an earlier diagnosis and treatment would have been far greater.

After watching for hours as the patients moved through the clinic, it was hard to believe that I was in America.

Eighty-three percent of the patients they see are employed, they are not accepting other government help on a large scale, not "welfare queens" as some would like to have us believe. They are tax-paying, good, upstanding citizens who are trying to make it and give their kids a better life just like you and me.

Ninety percent of the patients who came through Saturday's clinic had two or more diagnoses.
Eighty-two percent had a life-threatening condition such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes, or hypertension. They are victims of a system built with corporate profits at its center, which long ago forgot the moral imperative that should drive us to show compassion to our fellow men and women.

Can't they take one day off from being a massive collective of douchebags. Just one day.

This action only serves the credit card companies.

GOP senators block effort to freeze credit card interest rates:

"Republican senators on Wednesday blocked an effort to debate a bill that would prevent credit card companies from raising interest rates ahead of new regulations coming into force next year.

The move angered congressional Democrats who were pushing for an emergency freeze on credit card rates.

'I’m extremely disappointed that the financial health of millions of American taxpayers has been completely brushed aside by a handful of Wall Street banking interests in the US Senate,' Rep. Betsy Markey (D-CO) said, as quoted in the Coloradoan."

Now, something that makes sense.

Some 'Awwww' for your Monday:
