And Bush flew the planes into the Twin Towers personally, I hear. Both of them.

I am sorry, but if you believe the newest death of OBL, you’re stupid. Just think to yourself–they paraded Saddam’s dead sons around to prove they were dead–why do you suppose they hastily buried this version of OBL at sea? This lying, murderous Empire can only exist with your brainwashed consent–just put your flags away and THINK!

Wow. There really is a liberal special interest group for everything

[Peggy] Howell said Obama’s campaign [against childhood obesity] marginalizes weighty children and turns them into victims.

“Well, how are they marginalized?” Howell asked. “Studies indicate that children of higher body weight are 65 percent more likely to be bullied than children of lower body weight. When our First Lady said that we have to wipeout childhood obesity in one generation, she essentially gave permission to everyone to condemn the children with higher body weights. How this translates in real life is that these children experience more ridicule, more teasing, more bullying, and the perpetrators feel justified in their actions because after all, the First Lady said these kids have to go.”

Howell said being targets — whether intended or not — causes heavy children “pain and suffering” – even depression and suicide.

“When children of higher body weight hear we have to wipeout childhood obesity in one generation, for them those words translate to: we have to eliminate obese children. They hear: your body is bad. They hear: thin equals good, fat equals bad. They hear: your body is bad,” Howell said.

Rick Perry is looking better all the time

I guarantee you that Perry will be the nominee. He’s the right kind of ignorant, bigoted, religious nut that will attract the religious fanatics, he’s a gun loving cheerleader who speaks the secessionist code and the teabaggers will love him, he’ll talk constantly about deregulation and lower taxes and the money will be on board, and as you can see from this syrupy sweet interview with Halperin […] the only decision for the media bobbleheads is whether they will spit or swallow.

It’s Sunday morning

See you in church!

Wait… aren’t you guys supposed to be the feminists?

LOL! It just looks like they didn’t photo shop the photo [of Bachmann on Newsweek] which is bad for her as a conservative woman because the only way a conservative woman can make it to the big time it to be attractive. This photo has killed all of the wingnut’s boners, so in other words she’s toast.

Yes you are

Today Texas Governor Rick Perry held his prayer rally “The Response,” with a panoply of the most insane, bigoted, and outright racist fundamental Christian leaders imploring their God to help them turn America into a repressive theocracy.

No, I’m not exaggerating.

Next, let’s call muggers ‘undocumented community organizers’

Making it illegal to cross made up lines on a map is a stupid practice. I hate the term “illegal” as if anyone has the right to say someone else is wrong for merely existing. The term should be “undocumented”. It’s far more appropriate and more accurately descriptive. I have worked alongside undocumented workers and you know what they find jobs and buy goods and services which help increase demand (something sorely lacking in today’s economy). Imagine living in fear that one day you’ll get pulled over for speeding or cited for jaywalking and get deported. Especially if you moved here as a small child. You’re no more hispanic than me and my family has been here since the 1770s. You’d end up in a country you know nothing about that you may have never been to while the rest of your family remains in the states. That’s a pretty horrifying existence if you ask me, yet they still choose to live here. you have to respect it. I’ve sacrificed nothing to live in the states and given the choice I’d probably be a citizen of a European country with better health care and better general access to services.
