This is too funny. Fox News apparently is so desperate for right-wing drivel that they have resorted to reporting parody as actual news in an attempt to get the knuckle draggers to foam at the mouth. I’ve always thought the Fox News audience was basically the same demographic that continues to forward me wingnut laced hoax emails. Think I’ll go ahead and pen over the pencil on that theory…Full Story... →

Awesome. From Dave at ProgreeOhio:
Strong American Schools is a nonpartisan public awareness and action campaign offering a voice to every American who supports ?ED in 08.? The goal is to ensure that the nation engages in a rigorous debate and to make education a top priority in the 2008 presidential election. They expect candidates to offer genuine leadership rather than empty rhetoric and tell voters how they intend to strengthen America?s schools so all students receive the education they deserve.

The first debate of the 2008 Presidential race is behind us. The Democrat side was represented by far too many people – so much so that the wide view made it hard to distinguish between the candidates. The flag backdrop was nice though:
The bottom line is this pretty much means nothing in the bigger picture. I didn’t see anything that happened that might shake up the current balance other than Edwards appearing to fade somewhat. The show of hands questions were idiotic. They should have limited the questions, but it had to be tough with such a large […]Full Story... →
Hmmm…wonder where all the talk of “mission creep” has gone? It is amazing to see the arguments used then and now and how dramatically they change given who is in the White House. (ht www.noiraqescalation.org)

Most recent McCain gaffes (he should go pro) have him singing a song about dropping bombs on Iran and joking about giving Jon Stewart an IED as a gift from his shopping spree in Iraq. In case you’ve been sleeping in a cave for the last few years, an IED is an “improvised explosive device”. The kind currently being used to kill our troops in Iraq. HA HA HA HA!
I noticed the Stewart joke in this clip (first one). It was a nervous attempt to deflect the criticism that John knew was coming. A poor […]Full Story... →
Ah irony. [Breaths in deeply] That sweet smell resulting from those being caught completely unaware that the words they are blogging don’t actually have the intended effect, but instead reflect upon them in a most unfortunate way. Take a recent post by our favorite wingnut GOP talking point automaton boy Matt Naugle. Matt is upset because the Senate voted 32-0 to change outdated language referring to those with mental illness as “idiots, imbeciles, lunatics and insane persons”.
First off, the 32-0 vote should have clued Matty Boy in to the fact that he was dancing on that far […]Full Story... →
