Doug Parris runs this red-meat social conservative group site which bars no holds when it comes to saying who they are and who they're not; what they believe and what they don't; who their friends are and where the rest of the Republicans can go. Well-written, and flaming.

These guys are as far to the right as the court was to the left decades ago.
Douglas, Black, and Warren must be spinning in their graves.

KS

Sotameyer, Kagan, Breyer and Ginsburg are as far left as anyone ever on the SCOTUS and make Warren, Douglas and Black look like moderates.

Chucks

Just thank God Douglas, Warren and Black are in their graves (though retirement is just as good at ending the terror)

Wow. Current TV's countersuit, on Olberman. Jeez, this guy sounds seriously unhinged. Given his track record, I am willing to bet this isn't an exaggeration.


"Current argues that Olbermann refused to promote the network or its shows, and would order staff not to promote “Countdown” when he wasn’t anchoring. It also pulled some embarrassing emails and events from Olbermann’s tenure at the network. After a picture of the “Countdown” set leaked to the press by the designer, Olbermann asked Current CEO Joel Hyatt “Can you assassinate him, please?” Another incident saw Olbermann throw a glass mug against the wall of the studio, shattering it.

Somehow, Olberman will manage to make it about Bush...this should be good

too damn funny. john gibson bids adieu to Olberman
Olby actually cried that he can't stand the smell or the fact that the limo drivers would dare to talk to him.

Gibson is damn funny - he is the one who coined the name "Bathtub Boy" for Olby.

If Prez. Obama needs any more trash talking material when he exposes his demagoguery , besides Al Sharpton, he can also reference Olby's worst person in the world diatribes.

(It is a sad commentary that I have to expose this side of the guy who serves as the Leader of the Free World, because many folks are too unperceptive and lazy to realize they are being played for idiots).

looks like olberman did not care much for Cenk Uygur. (I actually like Cenk and started to watch him)
From David Weigel blog:
"Cenk Uygur, who brought his "Young Turks" show to the network even though Olbermann thought it would stink. "Olbermann told them that he did not think Uygur would be a good choice. Olbermann opined to Bohrman that Uygur had difficulty separating facts from things he wanted to be true… when Uygur appeared on "Countdown," the day after Ugyur's much publicized departure from MSNBC (at the height of his perceived popularity), the ratings on the Program had actually gone down during Uygur's segment."

Difficulty in separating fact from fiction? From Olberman? jeez. You know it's bad when Al Gore and Roger Ailes both agree on something: Olberman is ridiculous.

KS

I watched Andrew Breitbart rip Cenk a new one in a one on one exchange a few months ago about the falsehoods Cenk was telling the viewers during their interview. At first, I thought Cenk was the caliber of a Lawrence O'Donnell or a Chris Matthews - overboard and asanine, but he actually got better as the show went along - not talking over him as much and allowed Breitbart to have a forum which he loved no matter where.

The next day Cenk Ugyur came on and admitted that Breitbart helped straighten out his false perceptions from the left wing media (Huff Post, media matters) and moved on. I'd watch him again, knowing that I'd disagree with his take, but he would at least provide a reasonable forum for opposing views.

at lest Cenk is still alive...

Mark Steyn wrote the following;

"In the end, free societies get the governments they deserve. So, if the American people wish to choose their chief executive on the basis of the "war on women," the Republican theocrats' confiscation of your contraceptives, or whatever other mangy and emaciated rabbit the Great Magician produces from his threadbare topper, they are free to do so, and they will live with the consequences. This week's bit of ham-handed misdirection was "the Buffett Rule," a not-so-disguised capital-gains tax hike designed to ensure that Warren Buffett pays as much tax as his secretary. If the alleged Sage of Omaha is as exercised about this as his public effusions would suggest, I'd be in favor of repealing the prohibition on Bills of Attainder, and the old boy could sleep easy at night. But instead every other American "millionaire" will be subject to the new rule – because, as President Obama said this week, it "will help us close our deficit."

Wow! Who knew it was that easy?

President Barack Obama speaks about the Buffett Rule, Wednesday, April 11, 2012, in the Eisenhower Executive Office Building on the White House complex in Washington.
SUSAN WALSH, ASSOCIATED PRESS
ADVERTISEMENT
A-hem. According to the Congressional Budget Office (the same nonpartisan bean counters who project that on Obama's current spending proposals the entire U.S. economy will cease to exist in 2027) Obama's Buffett Rule will raise – stand well back – $3.2 billion per year. Or what the United States government currently borrows every 17 hours. So in 514 years it will have raised enough additional revenue to pay off the 2011 federal budget deficit. If you want to mark it on your calendar, 514 years is the year 2526. There's a sporting chance Joe Biden will have retired from public life by then, but other than that I'm not making any bets."

That pretty much sums up what the POTUS election is about.
