A Reward for Your Patience

Mount St. Helens from Johnston Ridge, September 2011

Sorry, my darlings. It’s apparently a holiday week: I’m disorganized as hell and keep getting distracted by shiny things when I should be writing. I’ve nearly got everything together for our next Prelude to a Catastrophe installment. Unless a squirrel happens, I should be writing it tomorrow night. We will not discuss the post WordPress …

Birthers Suffer a Blow

This week’s seemingly been bonza for Birthers. Cons in Congress have been so afraid to defy them that they’ve been taking all sorts of evasive maneuvers rather than a stand: Blogger-activist Mike Stark has been staking out Capitol Hill recently, trying to get Republican congressmen on the record about whether or not they believe President …

NRCC Puts Its Money Where The Insanity Is

I think this means they’re desperate: The National Republican Congressional Committee, which runs the GOP effort to recapture the House, has now expanded its list of vulnerable Republican incumbents the NRCC is committed to protecting, and one new name jumped out at me: Rep. Bill Posey of Florida. Rep. Posey, as it happens, is the …

Yet More Birther Bullshit

Credit where it’s due: Rep. Dave Reichert has to do a tapdance for the crazies in his base, but at least he admits the President is a natural-born citizen and wishes him success: Meanwhile, G. Gordon Liddy’s on Hardball bleating insanity: G. Gordon Liddy, the man behind the first Watergate break-in and founding father of …

We Need Birther Control

We’ve got a population explosion of Birthers. The stupidity’s multiplying exponentially, much like Tribbles. I think an air drop of condoms is in order. The first person who needs one snapped right over his ejaculations is Lou Dobbs: Today, Political Wire posted a clip of an episode of Lou Dobbs’ radio show in which he …

“God, Guns, Guts, and American Pick-Up Trucks”

Interesting marketing ploy: Mark Muller, the president of Max Motors in Missouri, is offering a gift certificate for a Kalashnikov AK-47 rifle to anyone who purchases a pick-up truck. A Ford and the weapon-of-choice of the mujahedeen. Fascinating one-stop shop options, there. However, the gun rack is going to cost you extra: Mark Muller, whose …

Ballots and Bullets

I don’t know how the fuck Cons are supposed to portray themselves as a sane, worthy opposition party when they keep fielding insane pieces of shit like this: We already noticed that the latest round of “Tea Parties” on July 4 in many places became forums for Mad Hatters and March Hares: far-right conspiracists and …

Sessions Succombs to Friendly Fire; Elsewhere, Buchanan Takes Aim at GOP’s Foot

A number of things has the far right completely unhinged, but they’re really coming apart over Sotomayor’s nomination: But a few right-wing activists not only think they can still rally some opposition to Sotomayor’s nomination, they’re doing so in the cheapest, most ridiculous way possible. Yesterday, we noticed that the Committee for Justice had just …

Birther in the Military

I wonder if a discharge for chronic stupidity comes under “dishonorable” or “medical”? U.S. Army Maj. Stefan Frederick Cook, who should be getting ready to deploy to Afghanistan, is instead seeking a temporary restraining order under the guise of being a conscientious objector. Cook is a birther who is arguing that President Obama is not …

Things to Bring Up In Arguments With Cons

A few posts on Crooks and Liars you should absolutely not miss, especially if you get bogged down in discussions with Cons: When they babble there’s no problem with racism and class divisions in this country, point them here. Be prepared to explain to them why, after generations of piss-poor treatment and rampant discrimination, black …
