The Tea Party, we're told, are extremists.

Exactly how isn't, say,  Wasserman an extremist? Heck, the Democrats have outright commies in their ranks - and ABC glosses over it!

Her name is Amanda Curtis by the way and she's the poster child for the politics of envy.

Blah, blah.

She needs a new hair stylist.


More crap clueless people say about libertarians.

Who said they hated buses?

Children is different. We use them for the diamond mines. What? They're orphans. Oh, like they have anything better to do. Hey, we're keeping them off the streets causing trouble, no?


Rotherham: But he's missing the point. Liberals have good intentions. Results don't matter when you mean well.

/Burning bush in background.

"This isn’t just a problem with political correctness or multiculturalism. It’s a failure of every component of the modern bureaucratic state, and every element of modern liberalism, from an education system that fails many poor youngsters and a welfare state that traps its dependents in poverty (both of which systems the current Conservative-led government are slowly reforming), to inertia and unaccountability of public sector bureaucracies, and the dynastic and often corrupt culture of the “Old Labour” political machines that dominate the UK’s northern cities.
One of the many disturbing aspects of the Rotherham scandal is that virtually no one has been held to account for the multiple failings that allowed the abuse to continue for so long. Many of those responsible have simply disappeared into the public sector morass, with some moving to other councils and some still involved in child “protection,” where they will continue to pull down their six-figure salaries before retiring on six-figure pensions.
The poster boy for these shameless public servants is Shaun Wright, a former Labour councillor who was responsible for children’s services in Rotherham between 2005 and 2010, when hundreds of children were being abused. He resigned from the council, only to continue failing the victims in his new post as police and crime commissioner. Wright has so far refused to resign from that position, insisting that he is “part of the solution.”

Britain should be embarrassed.  Just an absolute disgrace.


So it's okay when Ben or Jerry gets involved in politics to make changes but Koch is not?

And Lord oh me, the commenters at Salon should not be allowed to handle money.

Leave that to the grown ups.


Arron Woolf thinks Americans should pay more for food.



This is the best.

"The daughter of the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, President Barack Obama’s former minister, was convicted by a federal jury Friday of laundering thousands of dollars from a $1.25 million state grant for a Chicago-based job-training program."

God damn America!


Look. I think Obama is as bad a leader I've seen in my short life. I don't particularly think he's a powerful orator nor do I care for his banal takes on economics.

That being said, conservatives keep repeating the line about how he'd side with Muslims should it come to war.

It's not what he said.

"Of course, not all my conversations in immigrant communities follow this easy pattern. In the wake of 9/11, my meetings with Arab and Pakistani Americans, for example, have a more urgent quality, for the stories of detentions and FBI questioning and hard stares from neighbors have shaken their sense of security and belonging. They have been reminded that the history of immigration in this country has a dark underbelly; they need specific assurances that their citizenship really means something, that America has learned the right lessons from the Japanese internments during World War II, and that I will stand with them should the political winds shift in an ugly direction."

There's plenty to be critical of Obama without resorting to misrepresentations and fabrications.

Italians were interned as well. Just saying.
