    Oh, please. What Sherrod said was outta line.

    Let’s also remember that a tiny slice of blacks are responsible for most – but not all – of the violence against Washington State police in recent months from the Seattle ambush of the officer that had to punch one to the Seattle PD & Lakewood PD killings to the disgusting blogs glorifying cop killing.

    That said, I do not think racism has a place in politics. Nor does anti-semitism, Islamophobia and other forms of bigotry.

    Gregoire is being sued by the EFF–

    “We believe Gov. Gregoire’s climate change executive order is an unconstitutional order,” said Michael Reitz, director of the Evergreen Freedom Foundation’s Constitutional Law Center, who represents the taxpayers in this case. “Gov. Gregoire violated the doctrine of separation of powers by snatching a failed bill out of the legislative process and issuing it in the form of an executive order. If the governor wants to pass laws, she’s in the wrong branch of government.”

    ObaMao is -17 on the Strong Approval Poll.
    Seems stuck in the range of 2 rungs below mediocrity!
    He’ll be a real help in the 2010 elections!!
    For the R’s.
    I believe ObaMao’s ego does not allow him to grasp the fact that he has totally blown his election bounce…and much, much more.
    Predictable.
    He’s inexperienced & arrogant….and a Socialist.

    Spectacular piece by Rachel disclosing how Republicans race bait for political purposes. Well worth watching, despite its length. I think one clear lesson that can be had from this Shirley Sherrod debacle is that Democrats are adult enough to acknowledge mistakes and apologize. Righties? Not so much. That fecal fucker Andrew Breitbart has come nowhere near making an apology. He just dissembles. His wingnut audience won’t abandon him, either. You can count on that.

    Tea Baggery of the Left:

    Do not get me wrong, I believe we all owe a lot ot Move-On. BUT … like the folks from Lipton, our guys can get pretty irrational:

    This is the current cause celebre for MO. They want all the candy-dates to sign on to AN OATH. So far, few have. Read on and guess why?

    Overturn Citizens United:
    Amend the Constitution to protect America from unlimited corporate spending on our elections by overturning the Supreme Court’s decision giving corporations the same First Amendment rights as people.

    Fair elections now:

    Pass the Fair Elections Now Act, providing public financing to candidates who are supported by small donors so they can compete with corporate-backed and self-funded candidates.

    Lobbyist Reform Act:

    Pass legislation to end the overwhelming influence of corporate lobbyists by: prohibiting individuals from switching from corporate lobbying to government service, or vice-versa, within a 5-year period; stopping corporate lobbyists from giving gifts and providing free travel to government officials; and posting online the attendees and content of all meetings between lobbyists and government officials.

    Sad.
    Asking elected officials to sign a pledge like ythis is worthy of a tea bag award. Why would anyone wnat to sign a pledge for an amendment to overturn a Supreme Court decisions with not evena suggestion as to what the amendment would be for?

    The fair elections act? Exactly how do you get this done AND protect the first amendment?

    Only a tea baggier would believe that stopping lobbysits from offering air plane rides would have any real effect in corporate lobbying.

    Sad.

    Great intent but tea bagger level execution. Does anyone think Patty will sign onto this sort of thing? Overturn Citizen’s United??? Really? And do so by a new amendment? How would you word this part of the constitution … MO needs to reclone Madison!

    As for lobbyists, tell that to every dem congressman who NEEDS to plan on being a lobbyist is they do NOT get elected.

    The Fair Elections law appeals to me too, but there is a little matter of its certainly being unconstitutional!

    Liberal masturbation is just another form of tea baggery.

    That’s every word you wrote, in the order you wrote them. And it’s as accurate as the Sherrod clip.

    She said she learned it was not about black vs white, it was about the haves vs the have-nots. And I think that’s more scary to Money Conservatives than anything else.

    There are rumblings on the tax cuts for the rich front. Tools like McConnell and pathetic Dems like Conrad want to keep them.

    I used the phrase “charlatans and cranks” in the first edition of my principles textbook to describe some of the economic advisers to Ronald Reagan, who told him that broad-based income tax cuts would have such large supply-side effects that the tax cuts would raise tax revenue. I did not find such a claim credible, based on the available evidence. I never have, and I still don’t.

    Maddow did get something wrong. The Southern Strategy, the The Blacks Are Coming To Get You Strategy, worked very well for a while. It’s failing as strategies like that will always fail over time. The groups that insist on clinging to The Southern Strategy, like the Tea Baggers, may make a lot of noise and get a lot of press, but in the long run they will look like fools and have no real power or effect on policy.

    Who’s the “we” you’re referring to? I’ve never heard anybody discuss or care about what Maddow’s religious background is. You’re the first, and you’ve done it in a comment castigating everyone else for talking about it. That was a masterstroke of projection right there.

    And by the way, I had no idea what her religious background was, so I looked it up. She’s a Catholic, you nimrod.

    Dino Rossi should be asked where he stands on Rep. Paul Ryan’s disastous plan that he calls his budget “roadmap.” He (Ryan) wants to cut the taxes of the very rich in half, raise taxes on almost all other Americans through a value-added tax, eliminate the corporate income tax, eliminate Medicare, the Children’s Health Insurance Program, and most of Medicaid. It won’t eliminate the deficit, and in fact reduces overall federal revenue while still raising taxes on 75-90% of us.

    So whaddya say, Dino, are you on board with Ryan’s plan or not? Yes or no would do nicely.

    Speaking of job creators, do you know what “creates” jobs? DEMAND.

    That’s why stimulus works! It’s why direct spending works better than tax policy. It’s how John Maynard Keynes and FDR got us out of the Great Depression.

    But now, thanks to the abuse of the filibuster by Republicans hoping to create conditions of misery painful enough to gain them some political momentum, we can’t use this powerful tool.

    Welcome to the slow, painful, “jobless” recovery. Worse than Bush’s.

    Michael Steele’s RNC failed to report more than $7 million in debts owed by the RNC in April and May of the all-important second quarter of funraising. Did they want to make it seem as though the RNC has more cash on hand than it really does? Lots of allocation decisions are made based on the quaterly announcements.

    But maybe it was just a simple, honest bookeeping error, like Dino Rossi’s loan from Michael Mastro that he failed to disclose.

    No, I think he used it to buy a property that is now worth a lot less than the inflated price it was ping-ponged up to by speculating financial insiders colluding with loan insitutions, which was foreclosed on when the owner lost his job and couldn’t cover the loan with a sale due to the falling home prices in the collapse of the financial bubble. So I’m sure at the end of the day Dino will make a tidy profit. But when he does, will he report it? Watch this space…

    When you watch a researched, accurate, well-presented piece like this, you have to wonder how the wingies can claim that Rachel Maddow is the same as Glenn Beck or Rush Limbaugh, except that she’s on the left. There is, of course, no credible comparison. She might state her position passionately, but her position is supported by facts and reason. Beck, Limbaugh, and the other wingnut windbags are a completely different breed. They start with some passionately held position and then just go with it, fuck research. Fuck facts.

    She isn’t a journalist. Journalists are interested in the facts as they exist, not as they would like them to exist. Journalists are interested in portraying reality in a compelling way, not compelling reality to their way.

    Oops!

    July 22 (Bloomberg) — France faces a shortage of power capacity beginning in 2013 as the new Flamanville reactor will barely compensate for the shutdown of outdated fossil-fuel plants, grid operator Reseau de Transport d’Electricite said.

    While French power supply will be “reasonably assured” until 2013, rising demand will create a shortfall of 3 gigawatts by 2015, RTE said in a report released in Paris today. There’s also “greater uncertainty” on the availability of supply from neighboring countries to meet the shortfall, the Electricite de France SA unit said.

    You know and I that MSNBC is no more about journalism than Fox is. You know and I know that it is the accepted mouthpiece of leftist thought. This isn’t a bad thing in itself. If those on the right want to ignore real news for the cherry picked nonsense that Fox presents that’s their right. If those on the left want to pretend superiority for doing precisely the same thing with MSNBC that’s fine too.

    Wait a cotton picking minute… Now you are all drinking from the Rachel Maddow firehose?

    Van Jones, Rachel Maddow? What a bunch of crap. Van Jones own words and actions damned him you Maddow lovers. Van Jones said he was a black nationalist, a commie, and an anarchist. Seems to Puddy Maddow has her full complement of viewers from this blog! HAHAHAHAHAHAHA.

    Hey Rachel.. weren’t one of those who called everyone against Obama a racist? YES you were are!

    In one instance, Spencer Ackerman of the Washington Independent urged his colleagues to deflect attention from Obama’s relationship with Wright by changing the subject. Pick one of Obama’s conservative critics, Ackerman wrote, “Fred Barnes, Karl Rove, who cares — and call them racists.”

    Butt Rachel, where is your condemnation on this?

    Back to Van Jones.

    Now what was Van Jones doing? He was formenting racial tension in Oakland with rioting after the Rodney King verdict.

    “I met all these young radical people of color – I mean really radical, communists and anarchists. And it was, like, ‘This is what I need to be a part of… I spent the next ten years of my life working with a lot of those people I met in jail, trying to be a revolutionary…I was a rowdy nationalist on April 28th, and then the verdicts came down on April 29th. By August, I was a communist.”

    Was Van Jones vetted before Congress nope… therefore he’s a “CZAR” Rachel. When the president creates these “positions” there is no vetting. Sorry your continual stupidity clouds your “judgment” Rachel. Van Jones did goi to jail. Even if it was wron because of mistaken identity, but he does “brag” about it to raise his street cred as we’d say in da hood!

    So what did Van Jones do? He formed…

    Standing Together to Organize a Revolutionary Movement (STORM)

    And here’s another Van Jones group favorited by progressives, Kim Jong Il’s NK Workers Communist World Party.

    Then came Wednesday morning and the awful truth; a majority of U.S. voters appeared to have cast their ballots for George W. Bush after all. Across the country people of conscience were stunned; Can you believe it… I’m just numb…I would leave the country, but where can I go that Bush wouldn’t bomb.

    Hmmm… Bush would follow Jones to bomb him?

    Now, I’m going to say this. I can be an ASShole, and some of us who are not Barack Hussein Obama are going to have to start getting a little bit uppity.

    Really? Getting uppity? Steve Steve Steve gets really pizzed off when he thinks Puddy is getting uppity.

    Butt there’s more from Van Jones Rachel. Puddy guesses your crack research crew missed this…

    “To solve the new century’s mounting social and environmental problems, people of color activist and white activists need to be able to join forces. But all too often, the unconscious racism of white activists stands in the way of any effective, worthwhile collaboration. The Challenging White Supremacy Workshop is the most powerful tool that I have seen for removing the barriers to true partnerships between people of color and white folks. If the CWS trainings were mandatory for all white activists, the progressive movement in the United States would be unstoppable.”

    Butt there’s more.

    Everyone learned some great stuff of Van Jones. He was a 9/11 Truther, like some others on this blog. Puddy outed you fools before. The arschloch can search on 9/11 Truthers butt alas, the arschloch is what he is… an arschloch. Van jones supported “immediate inquiry into evidence that suggests high-level government officials may have deliberately allowed the September 11th attacks to occur.” Oops Rachel Maddow…

    ACORN.. OOPs, Voter fraud convictions 2009. 341 felons voted in 2008 in Minnesota probably most voting for Franen[stein], probably costing Norm Coleman his victory Rachel… Oops you missed this since ACORN was heavily involved in Minnesota. ACORN has reformed in Minnesota as Minnesota Neighborhoods Organizing for Change Rachel. They had too much invested in Minneapolis-St Paul. Didn’t your crack peeps figger this out?

    New Black Panter Party Rachel? The summary judgment was already awarded Rachel whgen Holder dropped the case. Voter intimidation was judged against them Rachel. Wrong again! Such BULLSHITTIUM eaten up by the leftist fools.

    Hey Rachel how many Sarah Palin stories did you run? Google returned 58000+ hits on “Rachel Maddow Sarah Palin” stories. Such a con artist Rachel!

    Now finally we come to Shirley Sherrod Rachel… her won words Rachel…

    “The first time I was faced with having to help a white farmer save his farm, he took a long time talking, but he was trying to show me he was superior to me. I know what he was doing. But he had come to me for help.

    “What he didn’t know while he was taking all that time trying to show me he was superior to me was, I was trying to decide just how much help I was going to give him. I was struggling with the fact that so many black people had lost their farm land, and here I was faced with having to help a white person save their land. So I didn’t give him the full force of what I could do. I did enough, so that when he – I assumed the Department of Agriculture had sent him to me, either that or the Georgia Department of Agriculture, and he needed to go back and report that I did try to help him.

    “So I took him to a white lawyer that had attended some of the training that we had provided because Chapter 12 bankruptcy had just been enacted for the family farm. So I figured if I take him to one of them, that his own kind would take care of him.

    “That’s when it was revealed to me that it’s about poor versus those who have. It’s not so much about white — It IS about white and black, because I took him to one of his own . . . “

    Now why didn’t Sherrod help him?

    Butt Rachel, Fox News didn’t run with the story until Odumba and the gang fired her, because they didn’t want to be seen condoning something they accused others of. Fox News didn’t mention the Sherrod story until she had already forced out of her job.

    Even FireDogLake has something to say and Puddy not a fan of this blog!

    I wonder what Messina thinks about this today? And how is it possible that the WH senior advisors are so completely clueless about what they’ve done to the Administration’s credibility? Alternate universes? Manchurian candidate? D.C. heat wave or water supplies? Panic? Never mind.

    Yep, Odumba and the disciples fried their own nuts.

    Wait a cotton picking minute… Now you are all drinking from the Rachel Maddow firehose?

    Van Jones, Rachel Maddow? What a bunch of crap. Van Jones own words and actions damned him you Maddow lovers. Van Jones said he was a black nationalist, a commie, and an anarchist. Seems to Puddy Maddow has her full complement of viewers from this blog! HAHAHAHAHAHAHA.

    Hey Rachel.. weren’t one of those who called everyone against Obama a racist? YES you were are!

    In one instance, Spencer Ackerman of the Washington Independent urged his colleagues to deflect attention from Obama’s relationship with Wright by changing the subject. Pick one of Obama’s conservative critics, Ackerman wrote, “Fred Barnes, Karl Rove, who cares — and call them racists.”

    Butt Rachel, where is your condemnation on this?

    Back to Van Jones.

    Now what was Van Jones doing? He was formenting racial tension in Oakland with rioting after the Rodney King verdict.

    “I met all these young radical people of color – I mean really radical, communists and anarchists. And it was, like, ‘This is what I need to be a part of… I spent the next ten years of my life working with a lot of those people I met in jail, trying to be a revolutionary…I was a rowdy nationalist on April 28th, and then the verdicts came down on April 29th. By August, I was a communist.”

    Was Van Jones vetted before Congress nope… therefore he’s a “CZAR” Rachel. When the president creates these “positions” there is no vetting. Sorry your continual stupidity clouds your “judgment” Rachel. Van Jones did goi to jail. Even if it was wron because of mistaken identity, but he does “brag” about it to raise his street cred as we’d say in da hood!

    So what did Van Jones do? He formed…

    Standing Together to Organize a Revolutionary Movement (STORM)

    And here’s another Van Jones group favorited by progressives, Kim Jong Il’s NK Workers Communist World Party.

    Then came Wednesday morning and the awful truth; a majority of U.S. voters appeared to have cast their ballots for George W. Bush after all. Across the country people of conscience were stunned; Can you believe it… I’m just numb…I would leave the country, but where can I go that Bush wouldn’t bomb.

    Hmmm… Bush would follow Jones to bomb him?

    Now, I’m going to say this. I can be an ASShole, and some of us who are not Barack Hussein Obama are going to have to start getting a little bit uppity.

    Really? Getting uppity? Steve Steve Steve gets really pizzed off when he thinks Puddy is getting uppity.

    Butt there’s more from Van Jones Rachel. Puddy guesses your crack research crew missed this…

    “To solve the new century’s mounting social and environmental problems, people of color activist and white activists need to be able to join forces. But all too often, the unconscious racism of white activists stands in the way of any effective, worthwhile collaboration. The Challenging White Supremacy Workshop is the most powerful tool that I have seen for removing the barriers to true partnerships between people of color and white folks. If the CWS trainings were mandatory for all white activists, the progressive movement in the United States would be unstoppable.”

    Butt there’s more.

    Everyone learned some great stuff of Van Jones. He was a 9/11 Truther, like some others on this blog. Puddy outed you fools before. The arschloch can search on 9/11 Truthers butt alas, the arschloch is what he is… an arschloch. Van jones supported “immediate inquiry into evidence that suggests high-level government officials may have deliberately allowed the September 11th attacks to occur.” Oops Rachel Maddow…

    ACORN.. OOPs, Voter fraud convictions 2009. 341 felons voted in 2008 in Minnesota probably most voting for Franen[stein], probably costing Norm Coleman his victory Rachel… Oops you missed this since ACORN was heavily involved in Minnesota. ACORN has reformed in Minnesota as Minnesota Neighborhoods Organizing for Change Rachel. They had too much invested in Minneapolis-St Paul. Didn’t your crack peeps figger this out?

    RE 85

    With all due respect to your usually interesting posts-

    MSNBC is a left leaning organization. Fox a right leaning one. Propanda is part of the political game. I get that, and am not bothered by it.

    It only bothers me is when people like Keith Olbermann or Rachel Maddow pretend to be serious journalists. They aren’t. I would say the same about Fox personalities, but don’t know the names of any. I don’t watch Fox, MSNBC or indeed any television. At any rate working for either network precludes also being actual journalists.

    If the portrayal of MSNBC as left leaning offends you I can’t help that. If some other unintended note I struck did it was an inadvertency. I won’t apologize for that, as apologies without understanding of the reason are as meaningless as a Glen Beck rant.

    If you don’t watch tv, you’re really in no position to say whether msnbc and Foxnews equate. Yet, you do say that: “I don’t watch Fox, MSNBC or indeed any television.”

    msnbc and Foxnews are not alike. Watch them sometime before offering an opinion. Rachel Maddow and Glenn Beck are far different creatures. Offering an opinion shortly after saying you don’t pay any attention to what you’re offering an opinion about is quite irresponsible.

    Pam,

    The 9th Circuit court of appeals has the highest rate of overturned judicial decisions of any in the country for the past 6 decades. I don’t need to have a case pending in that court to suspect that I wouldn’t want one. Sometimes it’s possible to look at the apples lying on the ground under the tree and guess that just maybe you’re looking at an apple tree.

    But you’re right. All I know about Fox is that they are often called out for errors. That they employ mostly people whose speech is inflammatory and irritatingly void of content, And that while I might agree with many of the beliefs they presumably espouse, the means of presentation does more damage to those beliefs than silence would.

    All I know about MSNBC is the hate speech in clips on the internet from people like Olbermann and Maddow and Schultz. I know that they misprepresent news and pick only those facts in a story which support their ideology, also from hit and miss clips on the internet. Schultz has a radio program I listened to twice. His hatred for any politicians with whom he disagrees is obvious and off putting.

    “Ms lost after tying the game in the 9th when they were down 6 to 1. Such is sporrts.”
    Take it out another 10 years and we’ll all know what it’s like to be Cubs fans.

    I don’t watch TV for a few reasons, but having watched Fox and MSNBC are 2 of the more compelling to me. ‘Reality’ TV, sitcoms whose situations aren’t funny and dramas involving the explicit details of gunshot wounds and rapes are others.

    But I have watched Ms. Maddow, and Fox for as long as I could take it. I have watched Olbermann rant about subjects he knows nothing about to all appearances. I have listened to Hartmann and Schultz and Reagan the extremely lesser and that lawyer on Air America or whatever they call it now. I like to know what the other point of view has to say.

    Trouble is Limbaugh and Beck and Hartmann and all the rest have the same thing to say. ‘I’m right, they’re wrong and for that I hate them and any who think like them.

    Maybe it makes me out of step, but this doesn’t seem a healthy approach to political differences.

    You do know, I presume, that the 9th Circuit covers far more territory than any other circuit, by far, don’t you? And, being overturned by the USSC hardly means being wrong, you understand that, too, I presume? The Roberts Court is not a good Court. Highly partisan. Not helping us be a nation of laws.

    Re 95

    The 9th was used primarily as an example, not to open a new topic.

    Nevertheless.

    The Roberts Court is in my opinion acting in some cases far outside of the latitude given it. Roberts brings the exact kind of reliance on personal and political opinions to deciding cases that many fear Elena Keagan will.

    But the period of judicial activism in which the 9th has been indulging precedes the Roberts Court and the Rehnquist Court. This is an appellate court with little regard for precedent and legal reasoning. They replace these with a reliance on the ideological views of its bench.

    Sorry, this sentence “Roberts brings the exact kind of reliance on personal and political opinions to deciding cases that many fear Elena Keagan will.” Was incomplete.
