Yup. Thanks SL (and HI to Jules!!!!) Yunno one thing I've been really happy about? Strangely enough, the last couple weeks - since Obama flushed out Ryan (more on him later...) and exposed him for the crook and liar that he is, the MSM has oddly been running with a few progressive memes for a change...

The sad thing is I'm this close to sending money to every GOP contender. The field is made of awesome.

Rachel had a great spot last night about exactly that Mike, did you see it ? If not I can try and find it online and post it. I saw that! I hardly ever miss Rachel. She should win a Pulizer for her investigative reporting. But she's ignored because she's a commentator. Doing the best investigative ...

I agree, SL. We need to learn to take the numbers which are on our side and press them. The GOP never misses a chance to do that. We had the numbers for a public option and should have used them. Now is our chance, and at least this time Obama is starting from that position it seems. Obama does his ...

Thanks Julie and Race! I will try to see if I can watch it soon. For me, everything is character or plot based. My favorite author ever is Asimov, and I don't recall any violence at all in any of his books (actually I think Harry Seldon threw a punch once in either Prelude or Forward to Foundation)....

Oh no! She was my favorite as well. A very important part of the Doctor Who universe. :'(

Good call, SL. Me too. I think it is interesting how Krugman talks about not compromising on principles (as do I) and the first thing that Repubs minds go to is violence...no Dem on this thread advocated violence at any stage. But I think the psychology is interesting nonetheless. I'm with you, SL. ...

I don't have HBO, but I'm considering watching this through my Roku or something. I am a little bit hesitant - while I'm no wimp when it comes to violence (BSG was pretty violent but I loved it) after everyone raved about Spartacus, I watched one episode to be treated to one man hacking off another ...

Republicans have been taking advantage of Dems' (and Libs') kindheartedness and proclivity to compromise for far too long. It's time we got realistic and played hardball with them. Sure, it would be nice if the GOP would legitimately try to govern by reaching consensus and compromise, but I'd also l...

Being Conservative Causes Teen Suicide

A new study in the leading journal for childhood medicine, Pediatrics , published a study showing the more Republicans there are in an area, the more likely all teen suicides become. If Republicans value their children, they should reexamine their lives, switch parties, and also stop selling death s...

I cannot wait until all the union thugs - those dirty rotten firemen, police officers, teachers, and their ilk - recall the lot of the Republican corporate shills locally and then vote en mass for Dems in 2012. The only thing that can make up for the fact that Citizens United gives the GOP Robber Ba...

Actually my favorite part was when Palin started trumping up her union cred. About how she's from a family of teachers and from a union family.
