MA SENATE: Elizabeth Warren Projected to Beat Scott Brown

Hooray! I’ve gone through lots of elections in which I was felt I was voting to prevent some clown, scoundrel or crook from getting elected, rather than for the person who won. But this year, I voted enthusiastically for Elizabeth Warren, and she’s now projected to win. It’s a nice feeling.

Little Paul Ryan, 12 Years Old, Has Nightmares about Central Planners, Whose Levees Are Saving New Orleans from Drowning

Paul Ryan’s speech to the Republican National Convention will be praised by unthinking pundits today for its success is revving up the GOP base — and you can only shake your head at what that takes these days. From early reactions, I suspect the speech will be a litmus test

Little Paul Ryan, 12 Years Old, Has Nightmares About Central Planners, Whose Levees Are Saving New Orleans From Drowning

Paul Ryan’s entire premise is so juvenile, so ridiculous, so oblivious to the reality of everyone’s everyday life that his speech should go down as one of the most absurd ever delivered at a national convention. But will any of our elite pundits notice?

Marco Rubio: Mitt Is My Hero and Every Child in America Should Grow Up to Be Like Him

Mitt Romney’s popularity/approval ratings have been in the dumps since the early primaries, and they’ve remained there or worse through the summer as the American people learned more about him.

So a recurring theme among Team Republican hacks has been that the one thing Mitt needs to do to capture the Presidency is to “tell us who he is,” as if the man who has been running for President since forever would become enormously popular if only he, his wife, and his friends would just reveal the “real” Mitt Romney.

Dick Cheney’s VP Advice to Mitt Romney: Pick Me! Pick Me!

It seems almost predictable that with Mitt Romney in Israel encouraging their government to start an unnecessary war, that the man whose lies and paranoia led America into a disastrous, unjustified and unnecessary war would have the chutzpah to presume to advise the apparent GOP nominee whom to select as his Vice Presidential running mate.

It’s now generally accepted that Dick Cheney’s advice to George Bush — pick me! pick me! – helped lead to over 4,500 pointless American deaths, tens of thousands of wounded, hundreds of thousands of tragic Iraqi deaths, millions of exiles and untold civil destruction that still makes the front pages of our newspapers.

Did Justice Scalia Just Encourage the Next Crazy to Aim a Real RPG at the Supreme Court?

It is a well know fact that when a right wing zealot is invited onto Fox News, you’re likely to hear the the most extreme forms of right wing nuttiness, while the Fox interviewer barely flinches at the sheer nuttiness. And that rule apparently applies to radical right wing Supreme Court Justices.

Zach Ford at Think Progress caught Justice Antonin Scalia telling Mike Wallace and Fox viewers that under his view of the Constitution’s 2nd Amendment, the “right to keep and bear arms” extends to whatever a man not affiliated with any militia can physically carry and aim at another human being, including a launcher for rocket propelled grenades.
