    Why does anyone take people such as Glen Beck seriously? He’s a drooling, schizo-effective lunatic. The fact that Rand Paul, an open holocaust denier and rabid antisemite takes him seriously and considers himself some sort of neonazi equivalent to Ted Kennedy listens to him is proof enough that the citizens of Kentucky have really absolutely no say in who is actually sent to the US Senate on their behalf. The man probably spends his late nights stroking himself to the sound of Alex Jones’ voice.

    I’d be willing to bet his alleged “election” was entirely fraudulent.

    Meet the obligation of the wager you lost to me predicting Rmoney would win the election.

    Write a check for $1,000 payable to Northwest Harvest and mail it to Darryl.

    Stop being a freeloading taker and start living up to your obligations. WRITE and SEND the check.

    Why should we treat them any differently? These guys would be shooting war widows in the head for working outside of a male relatives direct supervision if it wasn’t for the law. Or crushing little girls heads with rocks for speaking to an unrelated male.

    To quote Comedy Central’s Ilya Gerner: “Nothing says ‘I take this obligation freely’ quite like a state law that withholds your diploma unless you swear an oath.”

    I know that libbies have been eagerly awaiting the retirement of a certain US Senator/combat pilot who flew missions in Vietnam. I suppose this isn’t exactly what y’all were hoping for:

    Of course, Harkin isn’t exactly a Vietnam combat pilot, either:

    @4 This is what passes for wingnut humor these days? My response is that the Russians are the most corrupt people on earth, but Republicans are giving them a run for their (our?) money.

    Paul Ryan told a conclave of GOP cardinals and archbishops today they “need to stick together and pick their fights” with President Obama.

    http://www.huffingtonpost.com/.....d%3D262110

    Roger Rabbit Commentary: That’s probably good advice, as far as it goes, but they need to do more than that. They desperately need to reinvigorate the GOP’s once-vaunted, but now tattered, message discipline. The last thing their party needs is the kind of idiocy that came out of Boehner’s mouth has week, when he accused Obama of trying to “annihilate” the GOP, or the kind of stupidity that emerged in Arizona this week (see #3 above).

    In Europe, the big national railroads have been broken up into operating and infrastructure companies, and one success so far, is Germany’s Deutsche Bahn, which is a big holding company, with incumbant passenger operator DB part of it. The EU has ruled that it is legal, although DB subsidiaries that control stations, and the power distrubution for electric trains, have been accused of gouging the non-DB operators.

    Still, one new passenger operator is doing pretty good, and although it has only been running 6 months, the Hamburg-Koln Express is getting a good following. What I like about the HKX, is who owns it. One of the investors in it, is Rail Devolopment Corporation, an American Short Line holding company that primarily focuses on investing in overseas operations, although they do have one operation in the US, the Iowa Interstate.

    A little info on the infrastructure operator DB Netze.

    The Iowa Interstate is interested in resuming passenger operations on it’s former Rock Island trackage, and there is talk over the years of a Chicago to Omaha service using the Iowa Interstate, as in this case, unlike the route of the California Zephyr and Southwest CHief in Iowa, it hits Iowa’s major cities and towns. This service, assuming Iowa funds it, would be operated by Amtrak. One of the successes the HKX is having in Germany, is RDC sub-contratcted the motive power operations to another company. With the Iowa Interstate, I wonder if Amtrak should be the one operating it, since this route was never part of Amtrak(Rock Island declined to join, many stories on why they said no, part of it was they were too broke, the other part was, they thought they could make money on their two remaining trains within Illinois to keep the railroad’s cash flow going), but Amtrak already operates services on track they did not operate in it’s early days, as Maine had no US passenger trains running from 1960 to the early 2000s.(A Canadian Pacific, and later VIA Rail service to Halifax skirted across Northern Maine until a Liberal Government cut the route in 1993).

    Hey, it’s Sunday so failed presidential candidate and generally grumpy old man John Still Bitter I Lost McCain must be on the TeeVee.

    And lest we forget Grandpa Walnuts was who brought us Mooselini and all her ….wisdom.

    What’s Mooselini have to say in her post Fox News era?

    Palin told Breitbart News there needs to be “more truth-telling in the media” and called for fellow conservatives to follow her lead and expand their audience.

    “I encourage others to step out in faith, jump out of the comfort zone, and broaden our reach as believers in American exceptionalism,” she told the conservative news site in a short Q&A. “That means broadening our audience. I’m taking my own advice here as I free up opportunities to share more broadly the message of the beauty of freedom and the imperative of defending our republic and restoring this most exceptional nation.”

    And where did Mooselini step out of her comfort zone? Breitbart dot com! Because no place is more uncomfortable and audience broadening than zombie Breitbart.

    McCain-Palin; better than Rmoney-Ryan by a whisker!

    More word salad. I doubt she even knows the definitions of any of the words she uses.

    Superfluous verbosity. You can try to polish a turd, but all you’d end up with is a nice smooth piece of shit.

    Reminds me of that defunct troll puddyidiot. He called that right wing bullshit he posted here “truth” all the time.

    His idiot “truth” lost BIG TIME last Nov.. It FAILED to depose “the community organizer”..

    Heh.. I’ll laugh about that to end of my days.
