Bush's ratings encounter black hole. Again.

From CBS News: Poll: Bush Ratings At All-Time Low

34% approval. It dropped after Bush kept flogging his deal with terrorist-harboring countries to control our ports.

And watch the wingnuts bitch that "IT'S TEH CBS WHICH IS TEH EBIL LIBERAL MEDIAS OH NOES!!1". I know they're doing that right now.


A paraphrase that is apropos.

Paraphrased from Chris Rock, made appropriate to the situation:

Now there's two kinds of right-wingers, there's right-wingers, and there's wingnuts. Wingnuts have got to go! Every time right-wingers wanna do something good, wingnuts always gota come fuck it up!

That is all.

A draft we can all get behind. Except the right-wingers, and they don't like being drafted anyway - that's something for poor people.

From Calling All Wingnuts: You've Been Drafted
Alright - it isn’t that kind of draft. I’m drafting you for my Army - an Army of Wingnut Spinners.

This is the idea…

Most of you don’t know how easy it is to get on talk radio… you can do it - quite easily. And since it is so easy to do, I want to leverage our capability and, occasionally, flex our collective muscle by taking over a wingnut show… let’s put those fuckers on notice.

I have an idea for an action tomorrow. Won’t post it here because I don’t want to give it (or any future actions) away. All it would take is one troll running back to their evil lair and telling Hannity or O’Reilly or Limbaugh that we are about to ambush them… I don’t want to lose the initiative. Instead, I’m asking you to post in the comments your willingness to join the “Wingnut Spinners”. It will be an email action list of people wiling to call and push an coordinated agenda on talk radio shows. I only need about 15-20 people per action, so don’t feel like you are signing your life away - like I said, this is not a real draft… you won’t have to commit to every action.

For pete's sake, if there's a place open for any more of us, let's get our asses out there and help this dude.

"You can do eet!"


That Adam's Apple is cutting off the blood flow to her brain.

From Morons.org: Morons in the News: Ann Coulter Commits Election Felony

Yes, more shameless whoring of Morons.org, because nobody asked for it.

After right-wing extremist troll Ann Coulter moved from New York City to Florida, she naturally registered to vote as a Republican. The problem is she gave her realtor's address on her voter registration. Her realtor, Suzanne Frisbie, said "She never lived here. I'm Ann's Realtor, and she used this address to forward mail when she moved from New York."

Then she voted in Palm Beach's council election last week. But instead of voting in precinct 1198 where her Seabreeze Avenue home is located, she voted in precinct 1196 where her realtor lives on Indian Road.

Florida law makes it a 3rd degree felony to knowingly vote in the wrong precinct. Providing false information on a voter registration carries up to a $5,000 fine and five years in prison.

Coulter has refused to comment. What will the "rule of law" party do to ensure that Ann Coulter's wilful violation of the rule of law is duly and swiftly punished? I guess those rules only apply to Ann Coulter's favorite topic: liberals, liberals, liberals.

So, how long before Coulter dismisses this as "an acident" or just says it's "TEH EBIL LIBERAL SMEARS"? Never mind that the dimwitted bitch can't go one minute without saying that everyone she doesn't like is guilty of crimes against humanity. You'd figure she could weather a charge of felony election fraud.


Welcome to the Fifties.

Rove counting heads on the Senate Judiciary Committee
The White House has been twisting arms to ensure that no Republican member votes against President Bush in the Senate Judiciary Committee’s investigation of the administration's unauthorized wiretapping.

Congressional sources said Deputy Chief of Staff Karl Rove has threatened to blacklist any Republican who votes against the president. The sources said the blacklist would mean a halt in any White House political or financial support of senators running for re-election in November.

Ah, what a surprise, Rove's channeling another of the right's idols, Joseph "YOU ARES TEH COMMUNIST" McCarthy. Shows that no matter how discredited someone is, no matter how much their name is associated with ignorance and bullying, the right will continue to idolize them because that's what they idealize - ignorance and bullying.


OOO! OOO! Mr. Kotter! Mr. Kotter!

I'm getting tired of seeing conservatives bark about how we liberals "don't have any answers". Every day I see more of these right-wing shills in the media saying "All the liberals do is complain, they never have any answers". But we do. We propose answers all the time. And the conservatives just say "it'll never work, you don't have any answers".

Ineffective, expensive medicine? We say, universal health care.
Corrupt government officials taking corporate money? We say, campaign finance reform.
Wingnut pseudo-churches controlling the government while enjoying tax-exxempt status? We say, tell them to get out or pay taxes.
Horrible war we can't win? We say, get out of it.

But those aren't answers, are they?


Shameless link whoring.

From Morons.org: Editorial: News Media Runs Republican Propaganda Release

(Yeah, it's shameless of me to link to a site that I write for, but...)

And just how often do we hear the wingnuts scream about "liberal media"?
