Name and email are required

I've maintained for years that there's something about the brain and mindset of right-wingers.

They have a need to be told constantly that they are right, a need for constant validation of their worldview, constant justification for their prejudices, affirmation that their fears are warranted, verification of their suspicions.

Progressives/liberals don't have this need. This is why Faux News Channel dominates so completely in the cable news ratings. And it's why Rush Limbaugh makes such an ungodly amount of money while liberal talk radio has never really gotten off the ground in any meaningful way.

I have a relative who almost never turns Faux News Channel OFF. She and I have discussed this multiple times. She just can't see that she is a junkie, and Faux is her dealer.

July surprise! Oh noes!!

Finis Hominis

Will Mittens abandon his current strategy and go full Obamahate? Stay tuned for the clown show, or if you’re a supporter of Mittens, fasten your tinfoil hat.

Mercifurious

Oh please please please sweet Chuthulu, make every GOP congressman swallow this pill and hold investigations. And then have Mittens do the same. Chucks, Puts, and KC would LOVE IT and probably end up voting for Mittens... too bad no one else will. Amen

Mercifurious

KS from weekend thread:
Sheriff Joe confirmed the long form of Owebama's birth certificate was a phony - at least Romney has shown us his real birth certificate. If BO was born in Hawaii - what does he have to hide ?? You can't make this stuff up.. Unfreakin-believable..

BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH!!!

*ahem ahem* Excuse me.

What I meant to say is this is a serious situation, a serious investigation, with serious consequences. In fact, I couldn't be any more serious even if I were right now wearing a Sam the Eagle costume.

So in all seriousness and with total due respect, the GOP Congress must move on this now and without hesitation! Romney must do the same. That is all.

All together now:
Ready...
Aim (at your own temple)...
*BLAM*

Finis Hominis

Sam the Eagle costume? Correction; you mean a bloated 57 year old Captain America with teabags?
Carry on.

Puget Sound Blathers

yikes
please make the bad sherrif joe go away...

Whatever

They have a need to be told constantly that they are right, a need for constant validation of their worldview, constant justification for their prejudices, affirmation that their fears are warranted, verification of their suspicions.

"Name and email required" is dead on...except for one thing. He has perfectly described a liberal. Just look at these comments. The BW crew posts these inane stories and the liberal sheep pile on. I rest my case. LMAO

Finis Hominis

There is no better example of “Name and email required” than Freeretard. That blog has no political equal. There are more, but that one has to take the first place.

BlackRhino

Not Sam the Eagle nor bloated Captain America, the name is “Bane”.
Dunt dunt dunnn!
Come on guys, even Rush knows this.

KS

This blog is becoming too much like shooting fish in a barrel. We all know Barack Hussein Obama was born in Hawaii, but Sheriff Joe who is a reliable sheriff represents nothing more than a political caricature is highlighted here by this so-called news.

Some more controversial subject matter would be refreshing for a change. It's great (/sarc) being quoted by Mercifurious aka MF. but what follows is typical progressivist swill. Whatever has it correct. I rest my case.

Mike D

"This blog is becoming too much like shooting fish in a barrel. We all know Barack Hussein Obama was born in Hawaii, but Sheriff Joe who is a reliable sheriff represents nothing more than a political caricature is highlighted here by this so-called news."

You're using a lot of words and saying absolutely nothing. Kinda like Sarah Palin.

T-S

Thanks, Mike. I thought it was just me.

This just in... George Zimmerman just told Hannity that he would not change anything that happened the night he shot Trevon Martin. He said "It was all God's plan."
Actually, Hannity carefully guided Zimmerman through Hannity's version of what happened that night and George dutifully answered "Yes sir" and "No sir." If he tried to give further explanation, Hannity cut him off and got him back on track.
Interesting...
Also, Michelle Bachmann just got exxcoriated by former campaign manager Ed Rollins for her comments about top aide to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Huma Abedin, accusing her of some connection to the Muslim Brotherhood. (Huma is the wife of Andrew Wiener.)

From FoxNews.com...


BlackRhino

This is why Mittens should follow the lead of KS,

However, it is fair for him to suggest the Prez release his college records, which he has refused to do, unlike any other president so far. I doubt that Owebama would even admit he hasn't released his college records and the other documents of importance that are sealed in turn for Romney's tax records - funny if he did, it would give him the upper hand, but he is not smart enough to figure that out.

Posted by: KS | July 18, 2012 at 07:26 AM

Looks like Rmoney will pursue your strategy KS. I wonder what Putz thinks?

T-S

O'Donnell making a good case for Americans (Democrats) to go off the cliff with the tax hike for everyone at the end of the year. He promises the Dems will come back with a bill to reestablish the tax cuts for the 99% only and the Republicans will have to vote for them because Grover made them promise to vote for tax cuts.

So simple.


Rush has been all over left media today. I think he's really losing it. He sounds more and more like KS. It is amazing anyone still takes him seriously.

Re: Republican brains - always good to revisit the research:

Research suggests that conservatives are, on average, more susceptible to fear than those who identify themselves as liberals. Looking at MRIs of a large sample of young adults last year, researchers at University College London discovered that “greater conservatism was associated with increased volume of the right amygdala” ($$). The amygdala is an ancient brain structure that's activated during states of fear and anxiety. (The researchers also found that “greater liberalism was associated with increased gray matter volume in the anterior cingulate cortex” – a region in the brain that is believed to help people manage complexity.)

In other words; R brains are still primitive; D brains are evolved to handle complexity. :)

"It was all God's plan."??? Why is killing a man apart of Gods plan? What if it was a woman?

Gentlemen Rouge

It’s called cognitive dissonance. KS just realized, through the web or tv, his “way” is political suicide for the Mittster. If I’m wrong I wonder why KS isn’t talking up the Mittster’s decision to do exactly what KS wanted.

T-S

Listening to Eliot Spitzer and apparently there may be as many as 750,000 people denied the vote in Pennsylvania due to a voter ID law to take effect right before the election. That's a swing state.

The National Guard should be called out. No one should be disallowed voting rights due to a frivolous law activated right before a Presidential election. That's criminal.

KS

Sorry to break this to you - T-S BS, but Owebama's baseless attacks on Romney have hardly moved the polls at all and now Mitt is fighting back. More people have negative views about how he is handling the economy than in April by about 10%, not a good sign for an incumbent and his approval ratings continue to hover in the mid-40's - another bad sign for his reelection;



The latest poll pokes a hole in your wacked theory

Not a frivolous law, only in the mind of an anarchist. Voter ID should be mandatory to receive a ballot - it is required for everything else significant. Do yourself a favor - take the treatment. You'll regain your self respect if you do.

T-S

I have been watching MSNBC for some time now. I can understand why it isn't as popular as Fox non-News. It is absolutely the most repetitive network I've ever watched. (I'm sure Fox non-News is equally repetitive but the sheep on the right need repetitive messaging.)

I have both MSNBC speaker-off and Current speaker on currently running on my computer. I see what Maddow is talking about and it is the same thing O'Donnell, Ed, and even my wonderful Matthews talked about. Those of us on the left do not need that much messaging.

Current, on the other hand, has such diversity: Spitzer just discussed the FDA scandal in which the FDA was targeting certain employees who were potential whistle blowers. Then, he discussed the Huma Abedin thing.

Right now Jennifer Granholm finished interviewing Jill Green, Presidential candidate for the Green Party. I watched the whole convention for the Greens. They are on the ballot in I think twenty-one states. They are increasing their numbers slowly over time. I was honestly surprised at how well Jill pushed back to Jennifer who applauded the Green platform and yet sees them as potential spoilers. (Now Granholm is talking to Planned Parenthood representatives.)

I don't know how the Greens could honestly be any greater spoilers than the Republicans themselves by disenfranchising millions of people.

It is time for a change. If we have to go backward in order to go forward, I might finally be willing to do that.

BlackRhino

The numbers KS throws out are always in question if you want to know the truth, good or bad, you need to dig deeper.
This is the origin of the power lie polls he sourced. A bit more complicated than portrayed.

KS

Shrug. MSNBC is the Al Jazzera of the USA. Take the treatment, T-S BS - you sound as cynical and incoherent as Owebama railing about control of the state. He also has a mental disorder...

You should audition for a show on MSNBC - after they fire some other perverted slacker like Al Sharpton. I may even want to subscribe to cable if that were to happen.

Gentlemen Rouge

This highlights the problem with the lies of Rmoney. They are easy to look up. Or in our case, disclose.

Gentlemen Rouge

Or expose.

Dave in Lynwood

POCATELLO, ID—A $1 bill somehow made its way into the hands of Mitt Romney during a campaign stop Thursday, reportedly causing the Republican presidential candidate a moment of uncomprehending fascination. "What am I looking at here? What is this?" said Romney, squinting at the bill as he turned it over and over in his hands. "It almost looks like money, but it's missing the zeroes. Huh. Do people try to buy things with this?" Romney finally crumpled up the bill and threw it away, chuckling as he told reporters that "whoever thought that one up must be a real wiseacre.

KS

Gentleman Rouge - you sound as coherent as Sarah Palin...

Lies of Romney ? Sure, bet you can name at least two.

Gentlemen Rouge

Sorry baby, it’s the Onion.

It doesn’t matter if I can point out pass lies, what matters is if I point out you are passing about lies.

Sorry the link did not work, this is indeed the original CBs poll. You know, the same CBS which KS calls into question from time to time.

BlackRhino

“The polls I cited were true as part of the CBS/NYT polls, and were cherry-picked…” Posted by: KS | July 18, 2012 at 10:05 PM

An extraordinary admission.

KS

The NYT/CBS poll samples registered voters and Romney was ahead 47-46 in this poll.

It has been shown though that registered voters oversamples Democrats and likely voters (as Gallup samples) is a better indicator. That would be why I call that poll into question from time to time.

BlackRhino

The people have the authentic CBS polls, would you like to provide the Gallup polls?

David Brooks shows his IQ once again:
Alex Pareene: Did David Brooks Just Make His Most Absurd Argument Yet?
Squishy conservative columnist David Brooks wishes someone would explain to the rubes why Bain was a good thing.

David Brooks presents the middlebrow version of the “Obama is attacking capitalism” line, and, as usual, he does so poorly and with much unintentional humor.

Brook's column (and his columns' commenters as usual tell the story): The Capitalism Debate

I wonder why the Times keeps publishing such a poor excuse for a reasoning writer on the right. Or is it possible the right is so far right that no one can make sense of their position?

KS

Brooks is one of the best and the fact that you slam him because of something a rube like Alex Pareene writes, which is BS shows your lack of reason and shall I say intellingence ?

You'll listen to anyone who aligns themself with Pres. Deadbeat, but anyone who does is a true wingnut of the leftist ilk.

Brooks is exactly correct, whether he clashes with your bubble world or not.. The truth hurts, T-S, BS.

totally stupid conservative

Kay S is araid yew won't watch that new batman movie beacuase the auidiance will kepp yealling Bain and then romimy wont be electeed.

"your bubble world"...haha... spot on KS............T-S- my scheme to make googobs "of money this week is in full "go-flight" mode tonight..... no big, "obscene green' money yet BUT very probably as early as tomorrow the stacks of cash will start spewing out of the fiGurative personal ATM machine ....haha T-S

Thanks for ruining my joke, Gentleman Rouge.

Ann Romney to “you people”,
"we've given all you people need to know"

The contempt for the middle class rages at the Rmoney household. She said later; ‘let them eat cake’.

Hedge Fund Hal

she knows the libber media is not fair , wants her husband to lose and will give Obama a pass on virtually everything while going after her husband with a proctologist's scops, a "proctoscope" to quote Richard Nixon. Under these circumstances "you people" is quite appropriate, and very mild.

Whatever

Seems Anne Romney was showing her contempt for the media (and rightfully so), since that's who she was speaking to. It was an interview, not a speech. Another comment taken out of context. Tiresome.

T-S

She's the judge of what the media (or the people) need to know? Maybe in her mind. Not in mine or apparently the medias or other Republicans.

Gorgeous

Was being interviewed by a Blah person?

totally stupid conservative

I herd nixon made that comment after he saw deep throat, he had to watch it 3 times before he got it down pat

BlackRhino

Mittens is just plain out of touch. And Colbert points it out in satire.
Colbert: Romney Connects With Average Joes By Insulting Them In Front Of Wealthy Donors

Gentlemen Rouge

Do you aspire to become as rich as Mittens? Take the test, you may be a lost Romney.

T-S

Did you know that one of the things that makes private equity so lucrative is that they leverage highly? They get to borrow money to buy out firms, load them with debt, then break down their assets and sell them off. They then get to deduct the interest on the money they borrowed.

How come I don't get to deduct the interest on my credit cards? And they better never take my mortgage interest deduction away. Small potatoes when compared to Romney's subsidized wealth.
