Another sign of desperation

Apparently mobilizing the 101st Fighting Keyboardists, activating all the deep sleeper cells in CO and sending a truckload of Vicodin to Rush hasn't been enough to 'energize the base'... so now the heavy smear artillery is moving in:

Some clueless douchebag claims to have a compromising video of Biden's daughter. (and don't forget we're still waiting for the blockbuster Michelle Obama tape *cough*cough*bullshit!*cough*)

Of course the videocam didn't use tape - it was record-to-hard-drive model and was 'drilled into and thrown into a lake' (hm... wonder who taught him that Rovian trick?) and the video was so lame the Washington Post (aka 'Fishwraps Very Last Stand') wouldn't touch it.

The first asking price for the video was $2 million, then $400,000 - hell, that's going down faster than realty values!

It's really sad when the wingnutroots start resorting to this kind of childish crap. I wonder how long till someone else carves something on their forehead - it's like outtakes from Helter Skelter.

Heckuva job.... heckuva job. Keep it up kiddies.

Go Betsy!

Ignore the threats and bullshit, do what you were elected to do - the right thing.

OOOhhhh... Major Wingnut must have taken a special tech-smarts seminar! He (she?) now knows how to embed videos! OOOHHH!! The Dems might as well pack it in, the battle for techno-superiority is o-ver baby. We haven't a chance in the face of this kind of skill... (giggle).

I don't mind that this horrifically-poorly-done 3D is a blatant ripoff of Avery Ant because it just goes to show that the folks on the right still can't come up with anything new, just more ripoffs and hand-waving.

But when it comes to destroying their own party... they do rock.

We're always in such a big hurry. We travel distances routinely that would boggle our ancestors. For recreation.

The worst air disaster ever, Tenerife, Canary Islands.

Political violence played a part:
A militant separatist group set off a small bomb at Las Palmas Airport on Gran Canaria, closing that field and rerouting air traffic to the much-smaller Los Rodeos Airport on Tenerife.
Which overworked the controllers (and of course there's never enough anyway...) so things got hectic and the bad airport equipment didn't help...

The bottom line?
Despite the various factors feeding into the disaster, the official inquiry laid the entire blame on van Zanten. The veteran pilot's most egregious sin, caused either by impatience or miscommunication, was to take off without having received clearance from the tower.

Had van Zanten waited, the worst aviation accident in history would never have happened.

Sanity Prevails in Texas

In a stunning blow to theocrats everywhere:

From Religion Clause:

3/27/09 5:30 AM Howard Friedman (

Yesterday the Texas State Board of Education again more or less reaffirmed its earlier decision to mandate teaching of evolution in a manner consistent with mainstream science. After hearings in January, the Board preliminarily voted 8-7 to drop prior languge in the state's science curriculum standards that called for students to analyze the "strength and weaknesses" of scientific theories. (See prior posting.) New, more pro-science, language was adopted that says students should "analyze and evaluate scientific explanations using empirical evidence."

The final set of hearings on these standards began Wednesay. (AP). Yesterday, according to the New York Times, the the Board by a vote of 7-7 refused to adopt a proposal to go back to the old "strengths and weaknesses" language. However, social conservatives were able to add new requirements at various specific points in the curriculum that call on teachers to evaluate the sufficiency of current scientific explanations. For example, Biology standards will now call on teachers to "analyze and evaluate the sufficiency or insufficiency of natural selection to explain the complexity of the cell." A final Board vote is to be taken today. It is expected to reaffirm yesterday's result since one additional Board member will participate and she has already indicated that she opposes the changes pressed by social conservatives.

Bachmann Must Be Charged

U.S. Representative Michelle Bachmann wants a revolution
by Joe Sudbay (DC) on 3/27/2009 01:41:00 PM

Talking Points Memo, via Dump Bachmann, has the transcript of Congresswoman Michelle Bachmann calling for a revolution. Now, she wants an "orderly revolution," but a revolution nonetheless. As TPM notes, she's said it before, too.

Okay, in the United States of America, we have these orderly revolutions called elections. Barack Obama won. But, Bachmann isn't happy with that and seems to want to take this outside of the electoral process:
At this point the American people - it's like Thomas Jefferson said, a revolution every now and then is a good thing. We are at the point, Sean, of revolution. And by that, what I mean, an orderly revolution -- where the people of this country wake up get up and make a decision that this is not going to happen on their watch. It won't be our children and grandchildren that are in debt.
Oh, now the Republicans are worried about the debt -- like George Bush had nothing to do with it. And, this:
Right now I'm a member of Congress. And I believe that my job here is to be a foreign correspondent, reporting from enemy lines. And people need to understand, this isn't a game. this isn't just a political talk show that's happening right now. This is our very freedom, and we have 230 years, a continuous link of freedom that every generation has ceded to the next generation. This may be the time when that link breaks. And I'm going to do everything I can, I know you are, to make sure that we keep that link secure.
This is very incendiary talk for a member of Congress. She's calling the elected government of the U.S. her "enemy." It sounds like the rantings of one of the hard-core militia nuts. Those guys are willing to take up arms against their country. Sounds like Bachmann is willing to join them. I think there are laws against this kind of behavior.

The traditional media doesn't hold Bachmann accountable for her rantings. They think she's crazy. But, Bachmann means it and she speaks for her party. You don't see any Republicans reining her in. It's the same subtle call to violence that Palin used during the campaign. This shouldn't be dismissed.

And, yes, there is a law: 18 U.S.C. § 2385. Advocating overthrow of Government. Here's how it starts:

Whoever knowingly or willfully advocates, abets, advises, or teaches the duty, necessity, desirability, or propriety of overthrowing or destroying the government of the United States or the government of any State, Territory, District or Possession thereof, or the government of any political subdivision therein, by force or violence, or by the assassination of any officer of any such government; or

Whoever, with intent to cause the overthrow or destruction of any such government, prints, publishes, edits, issues, circulates, sells, distributes, or publicly displays any written or printed matter advocating, advising, or teaching the duty, necessity, desirability, or propriety of overthrowing or destroying any government in the United States by force or violence, or attempts to do so; or

Whoever organizes or helps or attempts to organize any society, group, or assembly of persons who teach, advocate, or encourage the overthrow or destruction of any such government by force or violence; or becomes or is a member of, or affiliates with, any such society, group, or assembly of persons, knowing the purposes thereof—

Shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than twenty years, or both, and shall be ineligible for employment by the United States or any department or agency thereof, for the five years next following his conviction.
You know damn well that if a Democrat had called for a revolution during the Bush years, we'd never hear the end of it. There would be press conferences and floor speeches and editorials. There would probably be an indictment. You know it. But, Bachmann just foments revolution without being held accountable.


From Howard Friedman at Religion Clause:

The Pew Forum last week published a long interview with Denver Archbishop Charles Chaput on the political obligations of Catholics. Chaput, author of the recent book Render Unto Caesar: Serving the Nation by Living Our Catholic Beliefs in Political Life, says in the interview:
we Catholics serve Caesar best when we serve God first, and that means living our Catholic beliefs vigorously, faithfully and without apologies at home and in the public, at work and in the voting booth. We can’t ignore the sufferings of the poor or the homeless or undocumented immigrants and then claim to be good Catholics. We also can’t ignore the killing of unborn children without struggling to end that daily homicide – not just through supportive social policies, but by changing the law.

[Thanks to Brad Pardee via Religionlaw for the lead.]
IE, crossing the line between Church and State.

Ladies and gentlemen, you've just read a declaration of war - from the Catholic church to the secular world.

I've been saying for years that our next biggest challenge would be well-funded fundies trying to take over the world WE BUILT - and there it is.

It's time to start nailing these people up on their own theological crosses - they want to do politics? Okay, fine.

No More Tax-Exempt Status.

We'll see how their money-raising machinery works with that wrench in the gears.

Next of Kin

John Hope Franklin via Prometheus6

Go. Read. Be Moved.

He was no Pollyanna. He knew, as my son Drew once wrote, that we are still always crossing that bridge from Selma to Montgomery. But John Hope always looked at the state trooper blocking the bridge, the figure standing in the way of freedom, and saw there another child of God. He knew, as Charles L. Black Jr. said, that the tragedy of Southern race relations was drawn from that "prima materia of all tragedy: the failure to recognize kinship."

That such a heart as this has gone from the earth makes us all poorer. -d

While it's endlessly funny in most cases, this case is screamingly, fall-down funny since it's a tip-of-the-fringe wingnut callling for the recall of fellow Republicans.

What do you call a budget with no numbers, no ideas, no detail and no plan? The House Republican budget
by Joe Sudbay (DC) on 3/26/2009 03:07:00 PM

DailyKosTV has great video from the big announcement of the GOP budget today. The big news is that there really is no GOP budget. No numbers, no ideas, no details, no plan. They are the party of "NO" -- No future:

At Huffington Post
, Ryan Grim detailed the exchange between reporters and GOP House Leader John Boehner:
Reporters -- mainstream, liberal and conservative -- greeted the Republican document with a collective scoff.

"Are you going to have any further details on this today?" the first asked.

"On what?" asked Boehner.

"There's no detail in here," noted the reporter.

Answered Boehner: "This is a blueprint for where we're going. Are you asking about some other document?"

A second reporter followed up: "What about some numbers? What about the out-year deficit? What about balancing the budget? How are you going to do it?"

"We'll have the alternative budget details next week," promised Boehner. Minority Whip Eric Cantor (R-Va.) had wisely departed the room after offering his opening remarks. ("Today's Republican road-to-recovery is the latest in a series of GOP initiatives, solutions and plans," he had offered.)

A third reporter asked Boehner about the Republican goal for deficit reduction, noting President Obama aimed to cut it in half in five years. "What's your goal?"

"To do better," said Boehner.

"How? How much?"

"You'll see next week."

"Wait. Why not today? Because he asked you to present a budget."

"Now, hold on," said Boehner. "The president came to Capitol Hill and laid out his blueprint for his budget during the State of the Union. He didn't offer his details until days later."

"In general, where do you see cuts coming?" the Huffington Post asked.

"We'll wait and see next week," he said.

Another reporter reminded Boehner that he has "criticized Democrats for throwing together a stimulus quickly and nobody knew what they were voting on. Are you saying that your budget will be unveiled on the same day that the House is expected to vote on it?"

"No, I expect it'll be out next week," he said, though the House is expected to vote on the budget next week. "But understand that a budget really is a one-page document. It's just a bunch of numbers."

Though not today, of course.
Of course. The Republican leaders are a bunch of clowns. This is all a big political game for them. But, it's a game their losing, big time.
I think the most telling thing in the whole video clip of Boner is this frame:

Those eyes remind me of Ted Bundy:

at least Teddy could try and fake a smile even though he knew he was going down (too).


From AmericaBlog:

AMERICAblog 3/26/09 3:35 PM John Aravosis (DC) (

Palin informs us this week that John McCain's presidential campaign staff was unworthy of being prayed with. Considering Jesus reached out to even the harlots, that's quite a charge from Palin. It's hard to come up with a better example of what's wrong with the Republican party today. Sarah Palin, and the rest of the conservative wing that runs the Republican party, think they literally speak for God, judging who is and isn't worthy of the Lord. It's pretty sickening that this deluded woman had a chance at running our country.
Later in the speech, she told a story about praying for strength before last October's Vice Presidential debate with Joe Biden in St. Louis.

"So I'm looking around for somebody to pray with, I just need maybe a little help, maybe a little extra," she said. "And the McCain campaign, love 'em, you know, they're a lot of people around me, but nobody I could find that I wanted to hold hands with and pray." As the crowd laughed, Palin grinned and said she meant no disrespect to the McCain campaign. She said she ultimately prayed with her daughter Piper.
I suppose by now I shouldn't be astonished at how low these lunatics will go, but this is astounding. So she was willing to be his Vice President, but didn't think he was worthy of praying with...

With opponents like this in the next election it will be no contest.

Dallas police chief apologizes for conduct of officer who drew gun on NFL player outside hospital
07:52 PM CDT on Thursday, March 26, 2009

By STEVE THOMPSON and TANYA EISERER / The Dallas Morning News

Dallas Police Chief David Kunkle stood in front of a dozen news cameras this afternoon at police headquarters to apologize for the behavior of an officer who stopped a family outside a hospital emergency room.

Kunkle said Officer Robert Powell has been placed on paid administrative leave in connection with an incident last week in which he stopped a family rushing to visit a dying mother, detaining them for 13 minutes to write a traffic ticket.

“His behavior in my opinion, did not exhibit the common sense, discretion, the compassion that we expect our officers to exhibit,” the chief told a packed audience of media outlets that included Inside Edition.

During the traffic stop, caught on the officer’s in-car camera, Powell berated the driver, 26-year-old NFL running back Ryan Moats, and threatened him with arrest for running a traffic light.

“I can screw you over,” said Powell, 25. “I’d rather not do that.”

At one point during today’s news conference, Kunkle seemed to restrain himself from being even more candid with his views on the incident.

“When we in the command staff reviewed the tapes,” he said, “we were embarrassed, disappointed — it’s hard to find the right words and still be professional in my role as a police chief.”

The chief also praised Moats and his family for how they handled the officer’s behavior.

“They exercised extraordinary patience, restraint, dealing with the behavior of our officer,” Kunkle said. “At no time did Mr. Moats identify himself as an NFL football player or expect any kind of special consideration. He handled himself very, very well.”

Moats rolled through a red light as he and his wife were en route to Baylor Regional Medical Center at Plano. A Dallas police squad car pulled their SUV over near the hospital's emergency entrance.

Moats and his wife implored the officer to let them hurry on to the bedside of her ill mother.

“You really want to go through this right now?” Moats pleaded. “My mother-in-law is dying. Right now!”

His wife, Tamishia Moats, said Powell "was pointing a gun at me as soon as I got out of the car. It was the weirdest feeling because I’ve never had a gun pointed at me before under those circumstances.”

Powell then spent long minutes writing Moats a ticket and threatening him with arrest.

Powell could not be reached for comment.

Kunkle, asked about Powell’s reaction to the investigation, said the officer told a member of the command staff that he was just doing his job.

“My understanding is that Officer Powell, even when he saw the videotape, believed he had not acted inappropriately," Kunkle said.

“I've read some of the comments in some of the publications, and the majority of the comments reflect my position — that at the point the officer was told that they were responding to a dying family member, that should have been his concern: to allow those people to get access to that family member."

The scene, captured by the officer's dashboard video camera, prompted apologies and the promise of an investigation even before Kunkle met the media.

“There were some things that were said that were disturbing, to say the least,” said Lt. Andy Harvey, a police spokesman.

Harvey said Powell told his commanders that he drew his gun but did not point it at Moats or his wife.

The lieutenant said it's not unusual for officers to draw a gun in traffic stops if they feel threatened.

Moats’ mother-in-law, Jonetta Collinsworth, was struggling at 45 with breast cancer that had spread throughout her body. Family members rushed to her bedside from as far away as California.

On March 17, the Moatses had gone to their Frisco home to get some rest. Around midnight, they received word that they needed to hurry back to the hospital if they wanted to see Collinsworth before she died.

The couple, along with Collinsworth’s father and an aunt, jumped into the SUV and headed back toward the hospital. They exited the Dallas North Tollway, just down the street from the hospital.

Moats turned on his hazard lights. He stopped at a red light, where, he said, the only nearby motorist signaled for him to go ahead. He went through.

Powell, watching traffic from a hidden spot, flipped on his lights and sirens. In less than a minute, he caught up to the SUV and followed for about 20 more seconds as Moats found a parking spot outside the emergency room.

Tamishia, 27, was the first out. Powell drew his gun and yelled at her to get back in.

“Get in there!” he yelled. “Let me see your hands!”

“My mom is dying,” she explained to him.

Powell was undeterred.

“I saw in his eyes that he really did not care,” Tamishia Moats said. “Honestly, I don’t think I cared that he had a gun pointed at me. My train of thought is that I’m going to see my mom in the hospital before she dies.”

Tamishia Moats and her great-aunt ignored the officer and headed into the hospital.

“It was almost like a movie,” she said, “It felt like we had robbed a bank or something.”

Ryan Moats, who stayed behind with the father of the dying woman, said Powell also pointed his gun at him. He said he put his hands on the car because he was afraid that he might get shot.

“I put my hands on the car so he couldn’t say I reached for something,” Ryan said. “He didn’t ask me to put my hands on the car. I just did it to try to protect myself. I was pleading with him.”

He tried to explain the situation to the officer.

“I waited until no traffic was coming,” Moats told Powell, explaining his passage through the red light. “I got seconds before she’s gone, man.”

Powell demanded his license and proof of insurance. Moats produced his license but said he didn’t know where the insurance paperwork was.

“Just give me a ticket or whatever,” he said, beginning to sound exasperated and a little argumentative.

“Shut your mouth,” Powell told him. “You can cooperate and settle down, or I can just take you to jail for running a red light.”

There was more back and forth.

“If you’re going to give me a ticket, give me a ticket.”

“Your attitude says that you need one.”

“All I’m asking you is just to hurry up.”

Powell began a lecture.

“If you want to keep this going, I’ll just put you in handcuffs,” the officer said, “and I’ll take you to jail for running a red light.”

Powell made several more points, including that the SUV was illegally parked. Moats replied “Yes sir” to each.

“Understand what I can do,” Powell concluded. “I can tow your truck. I can charge you with fleeing. I can make your night very difficult.”

“I understand,” Moats responded. “I hope you’ll be a great person and not do that.”

Hospital security guards arrived and told Powell that the Moatses’ relative really was upstairs dying.

Powell spent several minutes inside his squad car, in part to check Moats for outstanding warrants. He found none.

Another hospital staffer came out and spoke with a Plano police officer who had arrived.

“Hey, that’s the nurse,” the Plano officer told Powell. “She said that the mom’s dying right now, and she’s wanting to know if they can get him up there before she dies.”

“All right,” Powell replied. “I’m almost done.”

As Moats signed the ticket, Powell continued his lecture.

“Attitude’s everything,” he said. “All you had to do is stop, tell me what was going on. More than likely, I would have let you go.”

It had been about 13 minutes.

Moats and Collinsworth’s father went into the hospital, where they found Collinsworth had died, with her daughter at her side.

The Moatses, who are black, said Wednesday that they can’t help but think that race might have played a part in how Powell, who is white, treated them.

“I think he should lose his job,” said Ryan Moats, a Dallas native who attended Bishop Lynch High School and now plays for the Houston Texans.

Powell was hired in January 2006. Assistant Chief Floyd Simpson said Powell told police officials that he believed that he was doing his job. He has been re-assigned to dispatch pending an investigation.

“When people are in distress, we should come to the rescue,” said Simpson. “We shouldn’t further their distress.”

Collinsworth was buried Saturday in Louisiana.

Rebecca Lopez of WFAA-TV contributed to this report.

I can't comment, I'm simply too upset right now.

Why Outsourcing Must Stop - RIGHT NOW

The Agonist makes it quite clear:

"The pollution will hobble India's growth path, if that indeed is what the country wants. (Which I personally doubt, as India is far too conservative a country, in the small 'c' sense.)"
"The second issue, infrastructure, can be divided into four subcategories: roads, rails and ports and the electrical grid. The electrical grid is a joke. Load shedding is all too common, everywhere in India. Wide swaths of the country spend much of the day without the electricity they actually pay for. With out regular electricity, productivity, again, falls. The ports are a joke. Antiquated, out of date, hardly even appropriate for the mechanized world of container ports, more in line with the days of longshoremen and the like. Roads are an equal disaster."
"The last major problem in India is an old problem and can be divided into two parts that've been two sides of the same coin since government was invented: bureaucracy and corruption."
The more we outsource to this crumbling, corrupt mess, the greater the danger that when they collapse, we go with them.

Outsourcing was a bad idea to start with and gets worse every day - like throwing your slimy garbage in the gutter - civilized countries don't do it.

Rush Limbaugh Lied - Again

From the Drudge Retort:

Toby Harnden: Remember that business about President Obama thanking himself for hosting last week's St. Patrick's Day event because the wrong speech was loaded on the machine? Remember how Rush Limbaugh brayed on about how Irish premier Joe Cowen started reading Obama's speech from a teleprompter, and how Obama then got up and started reading Cowen's speech from the teleprompter? Only one problem: It never happened.
Here's the story from the Telegraph

Once again Rush proves what a bald-faced liar he is - a perfect leader for the GOP: Greasy Old Prevaricators.

Rocky Mountain National Park to be designated wilderness

Well, the hopes and prayers of the AK-47-toting hunting nuts are about to be dashed - the Omnibus Public Land Management bill has been approved by both the House and the Senate. Now it just needs the President's signature and all of Muskrat's disingenuous lying and posturing will finally be for naught.

Allard and Pombo can howl till dawn for all I care, they didn't give a damn about our state's most important natural treasure and would have had Fall River Road lined with condos and burger joints.

Here's to the folks that kept this bill alive and fought it to the finish.

Obama Will Speak At Notre Dame; Some Catholics Protest

On Friday, the White House announced that President Barack Obama will be the commencement speaker at three universities this spring. One of those is Notre Dame. A press release from Notre Dame indicated that the President will also be awarded an honorary doctor of laws degree. LifeSite News reported yesterday that since the announcement, Notre Dame has been deluged with criticism from those who believe the invitation should be withdrawn because of Obama's pro-abortion positions. Notre Dame President Fr. John Jenkins says that the honorary degree "is not intended to condone or endorse his position on specific issues regarding life." Jenkins also commented: "You cannot change the world if you shun the people you want to persuade, and if you cannot persuade them show respect for them and listen to them."

The Cardinal Newman Society, however, is circulating an online petition that calls it "an outrage and a scandal that ... one of the premier Catholic universities in the United States, would bestow such an honor on President Obama given his clear support for policies and laws that directly contradict fundamental Catholic teachings on life and marriage." As of Monday evening, the CNS website said that there were over 46,000 signers on the petition. [Thanks to PewSitter for the lead.]

Ok, strap in kiddies and make sure there's no Republican Catholics in the room - or at least have mercy on em and tranq-dart em right now. I mean it.

Ready? Yeehaw.

First, the Cardinal Newman Society can suck my balls. Really. It'll fit right in with the 'tea-party' motif the right's been masturbating to all month. You want tea? Have a teabag. Really, here - have two, the flavor will be better.

Where were you thumbsucking theological thugs during the pedophile priest era? Oh, that's right, helping cover it up.

Now that there's a Democratic President (and a black one to boot! ooohhh!!) you limpdick liturgical lackeys suddenly find your powah? Blow me. Pretend I'm an altar boy, I'll even wear a robe - it'll be good for all concerned.

Oh, and Bishop John D'Arcy (rhymes with Marcy) of Fort Wayne (home of fine mail-order porn for near-on a century) says he'll refuse to attend "in protest of President Obama's policies on stem cell research and abortion" oh man, that's rich. You did nothing while priests under your 'guidance' were ass-raping children in a house of God and now you speak up?

I'll gladly go to hell just so I can piss fire on these worthless bags of pus.

Yeah, yeah "would a Christian say things like this?" I'll bet Jesus had a few choice words for the crooks He kicked out of the temple. I think the Son'll cut me a husk and give me an asbestos dick to make my time in Hell easier.... not to mention a triple-size bladder. C'mere Marcy.
