Father Morris pushes "federal funding for abortion" falsehood to suggest Obama is untrustworthy:

Furthermore, it's high time we cut the top marginal tax bracket again. And how come we have to take care of sick people? Buncha parasites!!!!

And don't get Jebus started on teh death tax...

Former governor Mitt Romney assaulted by a Canadian.

Unfortunately, the details are less satisfying than the title.

Words of Wisdom

As seen at Tres Toros

O.K., I'll go to work now.

UPDATE: Leaving work and trudging home through the snow after 8 P.M. has not improved my opinion of the way that I spend (most of) my day. How about some Killdozer?

Schiller Park - February 7

I was wondering what happens to the ducky denizens of Schiller Park in the winter. So I walked on over Sunday to see for myself.

P.S. Another Kiwi is right!

Grifter Queen Sarah Addresses The Rubes

Thanks, A.P.!
Palin told the national "tea party" convention Saturday that America's national debt, which is held largely by other nations, "makes us less free" and "should tick us off."

The 2008 GOP vice presidential nominee got one of several standing ovations from the gathering of about 600 people when she said the nation is drowning in debt. The Obama administration argues that much of the nation's debt is being caused by tax cuts and a Medicare drug program enacted under former President George W. Bush.

Too bad there's no way to establish what the actual facts are, right, A.P.?

M.B. was liveblogging the spectacle, but I fear he has expired.

UPDATE: What Glennzilla Said!

That's one major reason why neocons such as Bill Kristol love her. Led by Joe Lieberman, neocons have repeatedly shown their willingness to cynically exploit extremist Christian Rapture dogma for greater American fealty towards Israeli actions, and Palin reliably spouts neoconservative dogma on virtually every issue. Almost every one of her national security pronouncements sounds exactly like Dick Cheney and The Weekly Standard (though her call for expanded Israeli settlements go beyond what even most neocons are willing to advocate openly).
All of this underscores both (a) the total incoherence of the "tea party movement" and (b) how it is, at bottom, nothing more than a cynical marketing attempt to re-brand the right wing of the Republican Party under the exact same policies and principles which defined it for the last couple of decades.

Teabaggers Ball Begins This Weekend!

Kathy Kiely, USA TODAY

Not terrible, Kathy, but you left out Glenn Beck and FAUX News.

The corporate media's obsession with these sockpuppets is sad. They happily ignored genuine grassroots opposition to the Iraq War. Of course, the Iraq War served corporate profits, specifically those of the defense and energy industries. And this teabagger movement protects health insurance industry profits.

W. Mark Felt to Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein, early 1970s: "Follow the money".

The Washington Post under Donald Graham: "Worship the money".

UPDATE: It's the Associated Press, people!

Here's what's clear: This is pure people-driven politics facilitated by the Internet. This is an ideological mix of libertarianism and conservatism with the common denominator being lower spending and smaller government. This is a loose collection of citizen groups with no leader but many voices. And this is the product of long-simmering anger.
What's clear is that the A.P. is as full of crap as FAUX News.

Feeling Sheepish?

The Pride of Hewlett-Packard, people!

P.S. If you have gotten off the boat and come to realize the mangoes aren't worth it, you can bail to about 2:25.
