Rob Portman Back at OMB?

On June 27, 2008 By

Actually no. No he’s not.

But you’d think so if you visited certain pages at

I just came across this page that still says Rob Portman is director of OMB even though he was replaced by Jim Nussle over a year ago…

Not surprising though. The Bush team never did get teh Internets.

The Neo-Con nightmare is about over. The latest evidence is how it has damaged the GOP brand to the point that the NRCC is advising candidates to try to avoid looking Republican in order to stave off massive losses set to come driven by Obama coat tails.

A new playbook for House Republicans urges them to run essentially as independents, showing empathy for voters, emphasizing local issues and ignoring many traditional party campaign practices.

The evidence is also mounting that we, as Progressives, have already won. The tide is turning. It’s up to us and our electeds […]

Joe Lieberman is a Dick

On June 27, 2008 By

Dickipedia is pretty fucking hilarious. If you haven’t checked it out, be sure to read the entries for The Pilgrims and Lance Armstrong.

One of the latest entries is for our favorite dick Joe Lieberman

Joseph Isadore “Joe” Lieberman (born February 24, 1942) is a former Democratic candidate for Vice President, an Independent Senator from Connecticut, a supporter of Republican presidential candidate John McCain, and a dick.

Lieberman’s strongest dick quality is his propensity to betray those who have been loyal to him. Whether it’s trading in his kind-of-Jewish first wife Betty for his super-Jewish second […]

So with the recent DC handgun ban ruling by the Supreme Court and the resulting glee on the right (despite the court continuing to allow “reasonable restrictions”), I began thinking.

On one hand (guns) it is government hands off!

Two days ago the US Supreme Court shot down a Louisiana law that allowed the state to kill someone convicted of raping a child under 12,

No one is going to argue we shouldn’t give the most severe punishment possible to a guy who rapes his 8 year old step daughter. It’s a horrible crime and the guy deserves to rot in jail for the rest of his fucking life.

But this is the death penalty we’re talking about here. The DEATH penalty. State sponsored killing of another human being. If we are going to use it – […]

Unity! See it live.

Hillary really is doing a fantastic job.

The Hill reports that Dennis Kucinich – in another sad attempt to stay relevant – has not yet endorsed Barack Obama and doesn’t plan to until he knows “what the party stands for.”

Obama’s campaign “declined to comment”.

Which is exactly what they should do.

Barack is going to win Kucinich’s district even if Dennis doesn’t endorse him and he might actually do a lot better nationally if Dennis doesn’t endorse him.

Obama needs to avoid that “most liberal member of congress” label – and not hanging out with Kucinich is a great way to start.
