Putting the emphasis on the final syllable of Sotomayor is unnatural in English. Therby making it so difficult I won’t do it out of principle. Mexicans.
Congressman Admiral Sestak to challenge Specter. →
The note says, “I am writing you as especially dear supporters to let you know I intend to run for the U.S. Senate…my candidacy’s credibility will have much to do with my fundraising success by the 30 June FEC filing deadline at the end of this quarter. Would you help me bring the change for the future we Pennsylvanians need[?]”
The Carbon 9 →
Jason Altmire (Pennsylvania): Seems to oppose; calls cap-and-trade “bad policy.” Rick Boucher (Virginia): Voted for it in committee but says he will keep pushing for lower targets. Artur Davis (Alabama): Seems to oppose; said it would penalize Alabama and that Congress should address health care first. Baron Hill (Indiana): Voted for it in committee. Charlie Melancon (Louisiana): Voted...

danielholter: I hate taxes just as much as the next person. But for the love of pete, tax us when we spend money, not when we make it. The disincentive regarding the tax code when earning (hopefully more) money through employment (and actual investment) is ridiculous. I haven’t made up my mind about a VAT. Mike Huckabee was a big champion of this, he wanted to get rid of the IRS and...
I’m never ever using eVite again (I think I first made this promise in 2006) but M-effers aren’t all on FB, and even if they were it’s super easy to ignore/forget about FB.

Prop 8 is a win for gays
notthatkindagay: The religious right should be FURIOUS at this decision! FURIOUS I SAY. They lost the battle that gay marriage is bad for society, bad for California, and bad for the country. The Supreme Court said Prop 8 is legally valid, but they also said that the gay marriages performed from May until November of 2008 are valid too, thus, California has gay marriage and there’s nothing the...
Everyone pontificating about Sotomayor is wasting their time. Obama has the votes in the Senate to elevate her. The only weapon the Republicans might have is if she hasn’t paid her taxes or if she has an illegal nanny or something.
I firmly believe in the law as a foundation for all of our basic rights.– Supreme Court Nominee, Judge Sonia Sotomayor, 5/26/09 (via notthatkindagay) haha, wait, not Jesus and His dad? WTF!
Texas Mayor Moves to Mexico with Illegal Immigrant... →
SO CUTE. I wonder how many Texan’s heads esploded. well, it is near Austin so the story reactions are probably true. Mr. Lown, 32 years old, sent the city manager a text message just hours before he was due to be sworn into office Tuesday that said he wouldn’t be at the ceremony. He’d moved to Mexico, leaving behind a short letter of resignation on his desk. Mr. Lown’s...

no one is at work today, except for me…
Don't Forget the Mockery →
Josh Marshall gets it right. Dick Cheney is NOT on of the same stature as the President. He is a fool who, with his idiot boss, has endangered this country more then anyone, ever. Having him lecture Obama/us on national security should be considered silly by rational individuals.
notthatkindagay: Vice President Cheney casting himself as the great defender of the Intelligence community when he and the Bush Administration basically ignored everything they told him leading up to the Iraq war. its also something having the taste and consistency of Iron.
I think it’s really awesome you think our founding documents are really important President Obama, but: When is Gitmo closing, where are you sending them, how are you trying them?* Your speeches were much better when they were contrasted by a 9,000 year old zombie hypocrite and a low-grade pentacostal retard.
(F) Bombs Away at White House Happy Hour →
notthatkindagay: Rahm Emanuel got a dose of his own medicine at last night’s weekly bipartisan White House mixer for members of Congress. Rep. Steven LaTourette (R-Ohio), one of only a handful of Republicans who made the cut for this week’s happy hour, gave his old colleague one doozy of an F-bomb greeting. Emanuel couldn’t have done it better himself. With an impressively straight face,...
The Ground Shift Under the Auto-Industry →
Francis Cianfrocca is the smartest conservative economics writer I can find. This is the point at which Barack Obama entered, shrewdly perceiving and ruthlessly taking an opportunity to roll up the whole industry in one stroke. What Obama basically said to the industry was: “The taxpayers will keep you alive permanently, but you don’t get a free ride. From now on, you have to play by...

To steal Dan Savage’s line: A Bakersfield father is accused of biting out one of the eyes of his small child and similarly mutilating the other eye, leaving the child blind. After attacking the child, 34-year-old Angel Vidal Mendoza Sr. quickly left his apartment in a wheelchair, entered a backyard of a nearby vacant home and attacked his own legs with an ax, severely injuring himself,...
I am totally going to gross you out and give you nightmares with the next one
Dear President Obama:

Let's Have Cap and No Trade →
Sorry enviromentalist “moderates,” I really home this bill dies. The sooner the better. Markets thrive on volatility. Electricity utilities, on the other hand, are highly regulated to ensure price stability — not volatility — for their customers. The Waxman-Markey bill imposes a market-based (read: unregulated) trading program on a highly regulated industry that must...
The Incredible Shrinking GOP →
This is great, though it is missing one thing, namely the SIZE of each of the groups, as in what % of the total population did 18-29 year olds comprise in 2001 and 2009. here is a compiling of discussions about the gallup poll.
Things I Think Would Be Fun To Do:
notthatkindagay: Somehow reshape the Republican party, its messaging, and policy proposals. Seriously, I feel really bad for them. I really think I could help with a comprehensive plan which would allow for them to actually start winning elections and become, you know, relevant. To me, it’s important to have a strong opposition party. It usually allows for better policy to be made. I think...
"Andy, What are we gonna do about THOSE JEWS?!" →
“At the meeting I was attempting to explain that unlike Sen. Schumer, I believe in traditional values, like we used to see on The Andy Griffith Show. I made the mistake of referring to Sen. Schumer as ‘that Jew’ and I should not have put it that way as this took away from what I was trying to say,” Hendren said. (via Daily Kos via Ben Smith natch)
A liberal sense of humor
scttkrkwd: complicatedshoes: sds: …lots of left-wing bloggers are cheering [Wanda] Sykes on, and the president of the United States was visibly amused by her joke. So the question is this: Why do liberals find this joke funny when they should find it embarrassing? The answer, it seems clear, is that this is an example of shock humor: a genre that relies on the frisson of violating taboos....
