Despite an attempt by Chabot’s campaign and outside Republican groups to tout some, well, laughable poll numbers, the race is still considered a tossup, even as forecasters like Charlie Cook have gotten more bullish on the GOP’s chances of retaking the House.

Almost immediately after writing that post, we started to see conservatives (who denying reading us like they’ve never seen a Playboy, but for some unknown reason felt compelled to say something about the race immediately after my post) tweeting about how the “most […]

“It’s a metaphor Jon! It’s a clear metaphor for grassroots voter registration efforts in vulnerable districts. Skull fucking. It’s a common term.”

Mike Vanderboegh, a 57-year-old former “militiaman” from Alabama, who called on teabaggers and wingnuts to “Break their windows.? Break them NOW” has a very interesting way of supporting himself according to WaPo:

Vanderboegh said he once worked as a warehouse manager but now lives on government disability checks. He said he receives $1,300 a month because of his congestive heart failure, diabetes and hypertension.

I’ll hang up and listen.

Well, that didn’t take long. Series it is! More manufactured outrage from the left. No wait. This is manufactured outrage from the RIGHT! Apparently Ohio Congressman and House Minority Leader John Boehner is in on the conspiracy to stoke fear and sympathy for Democrats:

Republican House Minority Leader John Boehner, R-Ohio, denounced the threats and acts of violence, saying it’s “not the American way.”

We’ve probably all seen the video of the teabagger heckling the Parkinsons guy.? It was disturbing to say the least.? Now we know who the heckler of the Parkinsons guy was.? Chris Reichert.? We know he is a registered Republican (big surprise there).? Some folks in back channels want us to know more about Chris Reichert in an effort to further embarrass him.

Signed.? Sealed.? Delivered.

…and yes.? It IS a big fucking deal.

More than a year’s worth of intense political haggling, legislative maneuvering and emotional debate reached its stirring conclusion Tuesday morning as President Barack Obama officially signed health care reform legislation into law…

…For many in Obama’s inner circle, health care reform began to eerily resemble a legislative version of the Democratic primary, with emotional ebbs and flows, dramatic breakthroughs, vitriolic rhetoric, crushing defeats and, ultimately, historic conclusions. (HuffPo)

Looking like today will be an historic day.? Years of battles with obstructionist GOPers and recent intense months of continued obstruction and tea bagger insanity gives way to the passage of healthcare reform.? Marcy Kaptur backs away from the Stupak bridge to announce she’s on board.? John Larson says the votes are in hand.? We’ll know this evening whether this was true.? I’m hearing 217-214 in a stunning display of partisan obstructionism on the part of Republicans.

The good news is that our own John Boehner will be proved a spectacular failure in declaring the bill will “ruin […]
