DLC loses tax exempt status

Tags: 

It couldn't happen to a nicer crowd of Bush enablers. Although silly Forbes still thinks the DLC are Democrats:

In a previously unreported action, the Internal Revenue Service has revoked the DLC's tax exemption on the grounds that it primarily benefited a private group--Democrats, and particularly "New Democrats" running for or holding office--rather than the community at large. The DLC has sued in federal court to overturn the decision;

Bloggers Who Aren't Black

Well, I was willing to only make a couple of comments about it, but it seems other folks are motivated to make this an issue, so I might as well join in. Steve and Liza and Pam and T and folks at the Crack Den have all chimed in about it, and I have to say that I’m on the list of the deeply disappointed. It’s just not that hard to find bloggers of color. The excuses I’m reading just don't hold much water. Read below the fold...

Jesus Calls Muhammed A Doody Head

(Jivester World Anticipatory Armageddon News, Lmtd.) The Day Room at the Afterlife Hotel has been witness to an increase in tension of late, as deities from various quadrants of Belief Land have begun to bump up against each other with increasing frequency. Jesus, who went for centuries without so much as looking at the Prophet Muhammad (He wasn't sure what Muhammad looked like and didn't want to make it a "thing") accused the Prophet of drinking his last bottle of "Sangria de Christos" and called him a "doodyhead." Muhammad, who claims he doesn't drink wine or blood or diet coke, left the Day Room and sat down on a nearby hill, visibly upset. "Pbuh ate all of my figs, then accuses me of drinking his stupid wine. As if." Read below the fold...

They've changed Bush's meds again

If you want to be afraid, very afraid, listen to His latest news conference. Bush is becoming positively florid. (I'm still listening to it, and it's unlike anything I've ever heard. [Again, let me emphasize how truly weird it is. We're definitely in train-wreck territory here.] Read below the fold...

Renew your passport now!

Security expert Bruce Schneier in WaPo:

If you have a passport, now is the time to renew it -- even if it's not set to expire anytime soon. If you don't have a passport and think you might need one, now is the time to get it. In many countries, including the United States, passports will soon be equipped with RFID chips. And you don't want one of these chips in your passport.

At last! IRS Investigates Church for Politicking

Finally we're going to see some action on those abodes of the "Religious Right" where they tell you from the pulpit that voting for a Democrat will send you straight to HAAAAAIL!.

Oops...guess they're still working on those. This is the church they're going after:

The Internal Revenue Service has ordered a prominent liberal church to turn over documents and e-mails it produced during the 2004 election year that contain references to political candidates. Read below the fold...

Bush: "These are decent citizens who don't want to break the law."

And all Bush wants is "an alternative set of procedures." Is that so bad?

Then again, there's Abu Ghraib.

Everybody knows what Bush claiming the Geneva Convention is "vague" is all about:

It's about Bush making sure he'll never be held accountable for war crimes. Read below the fold...

The Never-Ending National Emergency

Departments: 

In the face of signing statements, torture, and lying us into war, I suppose it's not that big a deal. But I recall reading in the past how keeping the nation in this state allows him to get around certain legal hurdles on his path to return America to monarchy.
However it may be, long live the Emergency!

Iran: Things to Keep in Mind

Sob, I don't think Corrente is widely read enough that this post will ever be read by the Op-Ed staff of the WaPo, but apparently Chuck Kruthammer has some new POS up about how if we don't bomb Iran yesterday civilization as we know it will come to an end. But I'd like to remind Mr. "I've never seen a brown person I didn't want to kill" of a few facts, facts which make "our" prospects for a Glorious Victory in Iran somewhat less likely than he and Chimpy may believe:

Santorum Demon Children Sell Papa

I aspire to snark, but there are times when one must defer to a master of the art. Tony Norman of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette has been on a tear lately. Today he writes in the form of a letter to the Allegheny County's Office of Children, Youth and Families, the local child-abuse people.
