The National Disease That We Managed to Vaccinate Ourselves Against


I tacked on one of the chunks of text myself, but the rest is from the Romney Transition website that – luckily – never went live.  (Does that mean it was….



A Political Reality That a Christianist-Controlled Republican Party Will Not Acknowledge

Rmoney in concession last nite:

At a time like this, we can’t risk partisan bickering and political posturing. Our leaders have to reach across the aisle to do the people’s work.

In spite off everything else, even I might actually have developed a bit of respect for him if he’d then said: ‘I’m looking at YOU, John Boehner and Mitch McConnell.’

In all seriousness, they’re as much to blame for his loss as his own lies and flips are.  If those two – and I won’t even mention Eric Cantor, Darrell Issa and Paul Ryan – had actually compromised on anything and the economy had ended up where it is right now, Rmoney would have gotten to give a victory speech last nite.

How’s that $100 million of dark money thingee workin’ fer ya, Mr. Adelson?

Have fun invading Iran by yourself (or maybe you can get the Koch boys to be a right flank for you…no?) using swizzle sticks, dice and poker chips.

LBJ on the Anti-Mental Petri Dish that Breeds New Fox ‘News’ Viewers….

…and why the very people whose jobs Mitt Romney makes millions by destroying will dutifully march into the voting booth on Tuesday and vote for their own economic executioner.

I’ll confess that I have no idea if the attribution of this quote is accurate.

Given  that the substance of it is unquestionably accurate, however, does it matter?

Mitt Gets to Visit Atlantic City After All

Just When You Think Mitt Romney Couldn’t Possibly Be Any More Immoral or Any More Fake…

So not only did we have the borderline act of criminal trespass committed by Paul Ryan when he and his entourage barged into a soup kitchen to pretend to care about people – and in the process cleaning some pots and pans that were already clean – for a fraudulent photo op, but now we find out not only that Mitt the Flip’s fraudulent ‘relief effort’ yesterday diverted legitimate Red Cross resources away from New Jersey, et. al., but also that the entire spectacle was fake:

[T]he night before the event, campaign aides went to a local Wal Mart and spent $5,000 on granola bars, canned food, and diapers to put on display while they waited for donations to come in, according to one staffer. (The campaign confirmed that it “did donate supplies to the relief effort,” but would not specify how much it spent.)

Oh, but it gets better:

Distributing birther-inspired anti-Obama t-shirts at the “non-partisan” rally

That sound you definitely do not hear is Marie AnnToinette riding Rafalca through the ravaged areas of New Jersey to rescue people.

“Government workers shall hereby be known as ‘rescue creators.'”

Stick that in your Alabama’s Greatest Hits package and NASCAR it, Mitt.  Or…

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, who has blasted President Obama’s leadership, heaped praise on Obama on Tuesday for his handling of Hurricane Sandy.

“The president has been outstanding in this and so have the folks at FEMA,” Christie said on NBC’s “Today” show.

Christie, whose state is among the hardest hit by the storm, made appearances on several morning talk shows on Tuesday and applauded Obama at each stop.

On MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” Christie said “the president has been all over this, and he deserves great credit. He gave me his number at the White House and told me to call him if I needed anything and he absolutely means it, and it’s been very good working with the president and his administration.”

On CNN’s “Starting Point with Soledad O’Brien,” Christie added that Obama “has been incredibly supportive and helpful to our state, and not once did he bring up the election.”

Is that too dificult with Chris Christie’s tire tracks all over your back?

I’d say the New Jersey governor’s 2016 presidential campaign is already under way.

You’re Doing a Fine Job Mittie!

Is Rafalca Arabian?
