The basic Romney/Limbaugh/Sher Valenzuela, worldview involves using government to give things to their wealthy friends who “deserve” free money and access to no bid contracts.
That’s why they naturally think that President Obama’s job is to give money to his “friends.” Obama’s friends, of course, are low-life moochers who don’t “deserve” government largess.
“Gifts” to rich people are not gifts, but the natural order of things. Atrios made this observation, and it really makes sense.
Today is the 149th anniversary of Lincoln’s delivery of this speech that he presented at the dedication of the Soldier’s National Cemetery in Gettysburg. It was commemorated with remarks by Steven Spielberg, near the site where Lincoln gave his address. The video inside Gregory Peck delivering the address.
If I thought praying would help, I’d pray my ass off for this to happen…
The Republican Party has been doing a lot of hand-wringing and finger-pointing since the presidential election. Half the conservative columnists and bloggers say the GOP lost because it overemphasized social issues such as abortion and gay marriage. The other half says the party didn’t emphasize them enough. And everyone denounces Project ORCA, the campaign’s attempt to turn out voters via technology.
But I’ve got a suggestion for cutting short the GOP angst: Sarah Palin for president in 2016.
You think I’m joking? Think again.
In a recent interview with GQ, Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) declined to say how old he thought the earth was and got a lot wrong in the process.
Who will make the 4th Annual MVP (Most Valuable to the Progressive Cause) Awards List?
We’re open for any and all of your suggestions. Here are the criteria:
1. This list is Delaware-specific. Those who most helped the progressive cause in Delaware this year.
2. Nominees need not be progressives to qualify. Both Christine O’Donnell and Tony DeLuca previously made the list. I’m thinking that John Sigler is a shoo-in this year…
3. Nominees do not have to come solely from the political arena. In fact, I would love to recognize those who are doing great work away from the headlines.
4. Nominees will only be considered in the form of on-line responses to this thread. Those submitting nominations must have some supporting statement on behalf of the candidacy.
Deadline for nominations is Sunday, December 9.
