The Sarah Palin Facebook Translator

0 votes | submitted 2010-07-22 00:56:32 by divinediva | 0 comments

"Refudiate," we have taught the ex-governor by now, is not a word. Not even on Twitter, where she took to defending her vocabulary this week. But it's on Facebook where Sarah Palin takes to pushing her policy, her endorsements, and her general paranoia.\r\n

From the Tea Party to Andrew Breitbart, the president should confront bigots and their enablers.\r\nLet's take a moment to understand what we've seen over the past several days. As of last week, the Tea Party was a movement whose leadership included a man who once called the first black president of the United States, "a welfare monkey,"

For political junkies, the midterm election's marquee races are well known -- and I offered a list of those last week. But in a year when politics is hitting the boiling point, a top 10 list can't cover all the interesting races going on across the nation.

Grover Norquist on Big Government and the Online Poker Issue

141 votes | submitted 2010-07-20 22:02:10 by theengineer2008 | 22 comments

Grover Norquist, president of Americans for Tax Reform and author of Leave Us Alone, is opposed on principle to government interference in the lives of Americans. It does not matter if that interference comes from the left or the right -- big government is big government. This has recently gotten him into a public spat with a so-con leader.

Such impressive critical thinking skills on display here! My oh my. No wonder the teabagger movement is lauded the world over for its eminent rationality. When presented with the evidence that this video is satire, the ever vigilant skeptic responds with "But what if it isn't?"

One year ago, America's auto industry was going through very tough times. Caught in the quagmire of recession, two of Detroit's Big Three had filed for bankruptcy, and they'd brought a few of their pals along for the ride. American tax-payers bailed them out. How have they performed since? Was it worth it?

How Glenn Beck Warped Liberal Thomas Paine Into A Teabagger

351 votes | submitted 2010-07-19 22:54:24 by philperspective | 186 comments

Glenn Beck dislikes government. He also dislikes social programs - such as Social Security, Medicaid and Medicare. Those who advocate such programs are, for Beck, ?cockroaches.? Beck, a radical conservative, thinks he channels Paine, an interesting feat considering Paine was a radical liberal, who is considered the real father of Social Security.

Never mind you evil elites that Sarah Palin can?t speak English ? she?s inventing a new language and you?d be wise to adopt it soon, in light of her Second Coming, er Assault, on America. In the name of the troops and New Yorkers everywhere.

10 Most Horrifying, Absurd Things in the GOP State Platforms

78 votes | submitted 2010-07-19 09:30:30 by novenator | 41 comments

The GOP leadership's plan for addressing the nation's problems is to make them worse in order to screw over Obama and Democrats. Republicans at the state level, however, have introduced more proactive solutions to America's ills. These include outlawing oral sex and porn, taking a stand against the New World Order...

What if the Tea Party was Black?

31 votes | submitted 2010-07-18 23:52:25 by stonecircle | 6 comments

What if the Tea Party was black? At minimum, it's pretty clear that its gun-toting and violent rhetoric against the president would probably not be going over terribly well, especially with law enforcement (think the Old Black Panthers carrying guns into the State Capitol in Sacramento).

The Tea Party Signs You Won't See On TV

149 votes | submitted 2010-07-18 21:02:29 by anomaly100 | 69 comments

The Tea Party represents the Christian, patriotic, flag waving, freedom loving, decent citizens that only want small government, right? They’ve told us the racist signs are held by only one or two people in the crowd. Hardly. This is the Tea Party right here....

George Will: Can the GOP reach out to Hispanics?

0 votes | submitted 2010-07-18 02:38:39 by theengineer2008 | 0 comments

Conservatives need a strategy for addressing the immigration issue without alienating America's largest and most rapidly growing minority. Puerto Rico governor Luis Fortuno (R) wants Republicans to couple insistence on border enforcement with support for Puerto Rican statehood. This, he says, would resonate deeply among Hispanics nationwide.
