…and she wants everyone to stay that way.

Memo to Jeb ‘Brother of George W. Bush’ Bush

Sept. 11, 2001 was almost eight full months after Jan. 20, 2001.

If you don’t care about that fact, then you’re unfit to hold public office.

If you don’t understand it, then you’re not sufficiently competent to hold public office.

Third Time’s the Smarm

From Crooks and Liars:

Mitt Romney is rebranding himself again, this time as a poverty fighter

Seriously?

Seriously.

“Under President Obama, the rich have gotten richer, income inequality has gotten worse and there are more people in poverty than ever before,” Romney said. “Under this president, his policies have not worked. Their liberal policies are good every four years for a campaign, but they don’t get the job done.”… He added, “People want to see rising wages and they deserve them.”

By the time the debates begin, he’ll have blamed the Great Depression and ever other evil that Republican policies have brought about on the Democrats.

Only if You Put On the Uniform You Conned Your Way Out of Having to Put on Fifty Years Ago, Mitt

Again, the rich snots who avoid ever having to wear the uniform and put themselves in harm’s way are getting all hot and bothered over the prospect of sending more poor kids off to die:

Mitt Romney Says U.S. Shouldn’t Rule Out Sending Troops Into Iraq Or Syria

None Dare Call it Treason

From Crooks and Liars:

Fox Cheerleads U.S. Companies Moving Overseas

They’d have to evolve to become a pile of maggot-infested skunk excrement.

Has Rachel Maddow Jumped the Shark?

Crooks and Liars points to something good that Corporate Maddow did this week – while also having the temerity to observe that Corporate Maddow is a bit late to the party.

I don’t want to take away from the fact that I’m really happy to see someone in our corporate media point out that Bloody Bill Kristol should not have a platform where he’s allowed to push for more military interventions, to fearmonger and to lie about U.S. foreign policy (or any other subject he’s asked about for that matter), to the point where, as our brother Charlie Pierce pointed out this week, he deserves to be shunned, and certainly does not deserve a platform on any of our so-called “news” networks — I was disappointed to see MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow ignore the fact the the criticism she gave of Bill Kristol for always being wrong about everything, has been written about and highlighted and mocked on progressive blogs like this one and others for years on end now.

There are a lot more of us out there who have been banging Kristol over the head rhetorically for being wrong about everything besides the one blog she featured which was adding content for a whole month or so, and Mediaite.

So welcome to the party Rachel. Maybe next time you could mention just how many of us there are out there who have been saying that Kristol does not deserve to have any sort of a national platform to spew his venom for a very long time now. What I’d really like to know is just who Kristol is friends with that keeps making sure he stays gainfully employed no matter how horribly wrong he is time and time again? Who keeps booking him as a guest on MSNBC and NBC?

I’m sure that Rachel is too busy trying to figure out the next way in which she can erase trans issues from an otherwise substantive discussion.
