P.S.: What a stupid concept: "Here are pictures of some of the major jerks in the GOP 'Civil War,' w/ a line or two about what they've done/said." Dumb dumb dumb.

And how much will you bet that the shooter was a law-abiding citizen or, if he was the convicted kidnapper, the "good guys w/ guns" apparently didn't have the will or common sense to relieve him of his weapons after his conviction?Police have confirmed that the shooting is related to an ongoing child custody dispute case that has been played out in Delaware courts for years.
Five years ago, Belford's former husband kidnapped their three children and fled to Central America. He was later caught and sentenced to four years in prison.
Police are not identifying the gunman yet, saying only that he is a white male in his 50's or 60's.
Police say the two injured officers, a 42-year-old 7-year veteran and a 50-year-old 1-year veteran, were shot in an exchange with the gunman. Luckily, the officers were both struck in their bullet proof vests and are in good condition.Fuck this shit. Maybe, rather than everyone having weapons everywhere all the time (Because it doesn't look like the "good guy w/ a gun" can even keep himself safe.) we could just issue bullet-proof vests to every American who leaves her or his house on a regular basis.
The Israel lobby made sure that this Saturday Night Live sketch on the Chuck Hagel hearings was dropped from the show …
Well, maybe the lobby didn’t need to intervene. More likely, the show’s writers had to reconcile themselves to the fact that their audience doesn’t pay too much attention to what happens in the U.S. Senate. It’s hard to satirize a particular form of behavior — in this case, shameless displays of slavish adoration of Israel — if the people who need to get the joke are ignorant about the thing being mocked. Still, thanks to SNL for giving it a shot.
Wonder if ol' L. Brent III has any shootin' irons. 'Cause it would be irresponsible not to speculate. Public safety & all.
Gee, they really are out to get you, aren't they?Read the article. Am I crazy or is the editor of this piece mocking Levin and standing up for establishment kingmaker Karl Rove?
Are there any big sites that aren’t dismissive of conservatives and the TEA Party?
We are in trouble.
UPDATE: No reading between the lines necessary. The Daily Caller has laid it on the line -
Mark Levin has signed a clown letter that embarrasses clowns.
The DC Caller is not only having trouble with the TEA Party, but they are having trouble identifying the left from the right. Why would anyone on the right hold up Ron Jr. as someone immune from attack, legacy or not? It’s a clown analogy that embarrasses clowns.
The only big site worth going to is American Thinker. The rest are all suspect as far as I’m concerned.

You're a fucking cretin.Newly published research provides a compelling answer: brand-name products. Conservatives gravitate toward them, and Walmart, unlike Trader Joe’s, is packed with them.
That provocative conclusion can be drawn from a study in the journal Psychological Science. A research team led by Vishal Singh of New York University’s Stern School of Business has discovered a relationship between voting behavior, high levels of religiosity, and “seemingly inconsequential product choices.”
They argue that your decision to vote for a certain candidate, and purchase a particular brand of detergent, springs from the same basic impulse:
Trotter herself seems surprised by all the attention. “I would not call myself a political activist,” she tells The Daily Beast. “I’m just very interested in our liberties under the Constitution.”Trotter being the anti-feminist who told a Congressional hearing that she wants a scary-looking gun w/ which to defend her "babies."

The 41-year-old is a mother of six and a partner in the law firm she and her father built. She has written for a few blogs, including the now defunct Christian-themed Evangel. She’s a senior fellow at the Independent Women’s Forum, a nonprofit research group whose mission is to “expand the conservative coalition.”Whenever we at Just Another Blog (From L.A.)™ hear the phrase "nonprofit research group" we reach for our revolvers. Same deal when we see this much boiler-plate strung together.
She also defended her testimony further in an email, writing, “I am an unapologetically liberty-loving, tyranny-hating, red-blooded, patriotic American woman, a lawyer who is proud to say that the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution and the Bill of Rights are the founding charters of freedom and that government of the people, for the people and by the people is here to stay.”That is senior fellow-worthy blah blah yada yada if we've ever read any. And what exactly does redbloodedness have to do w/, well, anything, really? Are green-blooded, patriotic American woman not as patriotic as the red-blooded variety?

"Beloved," too, not merely a "critically important" playa. Hard to imagine whiny scold L. Brent as beloved; we can conceive of him as a playa, ah-iight, just not in American history beyond the obvious use as a peripheral bad example.

Euclid James 'Motorhead' Sherwood I've known for 12 years. We were in high school in Lancaster together. He used to play baritone sax in the Omens. He has the ability to perform a dance known as the bug, which resembles an epileptic fit. He's one of those guys you say, "I know this guy who's really weird and I want to show him to you." He was our equipment handler for a while and when we started the atrocities we started handing him our instruments to see what would happen. He played things more imaginative than the proficient musicians could lay down. It was just him against the machine in his mouth, a saxophone. He is also very proficient at dolls and visual aids.

On the one hand, the United States aggressively tried some of them at Nuremberg, and deported others like Demjanjuk, who had acquired U.S. visas by fraud, granting extradition rights to those countries who wanted to try them. On the other hand, the United States hired, used, and protected several thousand Nazi war criminals and collaborators for scientific and espionage purposes. The use and shielding of these criminals for more than 50 years was and is a massive obstruction of Holocaust justice.
Also included on the list of “nations” that collaborated with Nazi genocide is the Catholic Church. Not only did local churches in Croatia, France, Slovakia, and other countries actively support the Nazi regime, the Vatican itself failed to use its authority over those churches to stop the collaboration in a timely, decisive, and effective way. The Vatican also silently condoned the activities of priests and bishops living in Rome who helped Catholic war criminals escape to South America and the Middle East on what has become known as the Vatican ratline.

A new Pew Research survey finds "trust in the federal government remains mired near a historic low, while frustration with government remains high. And for the first time, a majority of the public says that the federal government threatens their personal rights and freedoms.Name. Just. One.
"The poll found shows [sic] "that 53% think that the federal government threatens their own personal rights and freedoms while 43% disagree."
For now, officials say they envision flying only unarmed surveillance drones from the base, though they have not ruled out conducting missile strikes at some point if the threat worsens.
Last June, a Washington Post report noted that: conventional aircraft hold two big advantages over drones: They are cheaper to operate and far less likely to draw attention because they are so similar to the planes used throughout Africa.

Fox News paid Palin over $15
per word, including 111 ‘amens’
An analysis by the University of Minnesota’s non-partisan Smart Politics website determined that Fox News paid former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin over $15 for each word she uttered on the air during her three-year contract, and 111 of those words were “amen.” Following last week’s news that Palin…

This is the thing that makes the South the distillation point for all the fugitive extremisms of our time, the heart of Say-No Republicanism, the home of lost causes and nostalgic lunacy. It is as if the whole continent were tipped upward, so that the scattered crazinesses might slide down to the bottom. The South has often been defeated. Now it is defeating itself.
