Lieberman is a cancer

Now he's campaigning with Republicans against Democrats. Firedoglake, as usual, is all over this one.

And what do you do with cancers?

You cut them out before they spread and destroy more healthy tissue. C'mon, Harry, you know I love you, but why is it so hard to do the right thing on this? Read below the fold...

Sometimes I'm Happy


THE PRESIDENT: Frustrated? Sometimes I'm frustrated. Rarely surprised. Sometimes I'm happy. This is -- but war is not a time of joy. These aren't joyous times. These are challenging times, and they're difficult times, and they're straining the psyche of our country.

Christianists can be stupid all they want, but why must they try to make others stupid?

Get a load of this:

Evolutionary biology has vanished from the list of acceptable fields of study for recipients of a federal education grant for low-income college students.

The omission is inadvertent, said Katherine McLane, a spokeswoman for the Department of Education, which administers the grants. “There is no explanation for it being left off the list,” Ms. McLane said. “It has always been an eligible major.”

House Republicans: Intelligence on Iraq, oops, Iran WMDs is weak

Even the House Republicans, crazed, corrupt, and desperate at they are, aren't on board with Rove's Iran gambit. And surprise! The intelligence is weak:

The U.S. intelligence community is ill-prepared to assess Iran's nuclear weapons capabilities and its intentions for developing weapons of mass destruction, a congressional report said on Wednesday.

Wingnut at Powerline: Bush has "big brother" persona


Assrocket's Freudian slip is showing [DCOW] (not to mention his authoritarian cultism):

bigbrother I had the opportunity this afternoon to be part of a relatively small group who heard President Bush talk, extemporaneously, for around forty minutes. ...

And speaking of narcissistic personality disorder

And lack of empathy, and sociopaths, carnacki at Skippy's place works Doctor Freud's ol' purloined letter routine--mental fucktitude so obvious it's hidden in plain sight:

Read aWol's quote again: "You know, nobody likes to see innocent people die. Nobody wants to turn on their TV on a daily basis and see havoc wrought by terrorists."

What he does not say is "Nobody wants innocent people to die."

Satan forces Christianists to put hotel porn on their credit cards

What is it, demonic forces seize control of their bodies, call the front desk, and force them to put porn on their credit cards? What is it with these guys? Read below the fold...

Market fundamentalism on health care

Bush cuts loose with another one:

The initiative underscores Bush's belief that the nation's health-care system would be more efficient if consumers could shop for the best care at the best price, administration officials say. "The fact is, if you have excellent information about quality, about service and about price, people make good decisions," Bush said during a roundtable here to discuss the initiative.

It's only words: Cut out the "Cut and run".

Words can be pesky little things. They can express love, hate, and anything in-between. A single word can cause, in certain circumstances, death, or worse. And words can tell a story, not just in the presence of a narrative, but by their very use. Read below the fold...

Pray For the Restoration and Revival of Our Otherwise Late Great State

Below is the text of an e-mail I received regarding legislation before the California Assembly, followed by my response. I have had quite enough of this absolute nonsense, and though I suspect the sender will remove me from the mailing list, I hit reply all and let anybody who cared know my thoughts on this subject. Fundamentalism is, in my opinion, anathema to the teachings of Jesus, and is anathema to the workings of the human heart. It must be faced down wherever it rears its ugly head, and bitch-slapped back to the bitter, scabrous womb of its unholy birth. Read below the fold...

Net Neutrality News of the Day


I had a conversation recently with a woman who works for an ad firm specializing in internet ads. She says, wait for it, that no one in her company knows or is talking about the threat to net neutrality. Heard the same from a family member that works for a company that would be wiped out if Steven's Tubes bill passes. So this is uplifting to read about:
