To the idiotic, irrational, irresponsible labeling from the fear-mongering right:

Quote of the month:
"I have piles and piles of black friends. They come to my home, I marry them, they use my bathroom."
What century is this?

Oh, and here are the 30 Republican who voted against an anti-rape bill. Have to love those family values....

And where are the religious pro-life folks regarding this story....? Love the zygote, hate the muscular dystrophy victim?
The House health care reform bill will save money, to the tune of over $100 billion in 10 years.

Would someone please inform Lieberman of this non-partisan fact....

A great collection of clips from that beacon of objective journalism, FOX News.

As always, imagine the screeching right's reaction if there was a far-left network that aired 24/7 this opinion-dressed-up-as-news stuff.... Fortunately, no one on the left would have the gumption or outright willingness to insult their viewers.

This should surprise no one:
The Environmental Protection Agency on Tuesday released a copy of a long-suppressed report by officials in the George W. Bush administration concluding that, based on the science, the government should begin regulating greenhouse gas emissions because global warming posed serious risks to the country.
My italics regarding science.

You have to wonder how many other findings exist (not just about the environment) that the prior administration decided to suppress and that we'll eventually learn about during Obama's time in office. We really did have sort of a corporatist dictator for eight years.

So most of Howard Stern's listeners do not realize that they're gay??
It appears Obama winning the Nobel Peace Prize has become just another reason for his enemies to dislike him that much more.

Never mind the fact that he had nothing to do with the winning verdict much less getting nominated in the first place. Or that he felt "humbled" by the award, also saying, “To be honest, I do not feel that I deserve to be in the company of so many of the transformative figures who’ve been honored by this prize.”

No, this didn't stop the blathering right from condemning Obama. But more so, if the dopes wanted to lambaste anything or anyone, they should've directed their ire towards the Nobel committee that decided to hand Obama the prize. It's not Obama's fault he was picked, and as for any of this nonsense that he should've declined accepting it -- pleeaasseee! Just imagine how he would've looked turning down such a prestigious award, the same bunch of wingnuts would've bashed him for being such a pretentious, egotistical elitist.

The sad truth remains: Obama can't win for losing with this cast of idiots. Bill Clinton had to put up with it for eight years, and now so also must Obama.

When we voted for change, were we duped?

Granted, Obama was (remains) light years better than the alternative running at the time, but that's not my question. Frank Rich's column today makes evident what has been true all along -- Obama is more of a typical politician than any so-called far-left radical. The latter characterization is simply used by nutball right-wing figures to stoke their crazed base.

But is Obama in fact so typical, so mainstream, that we're not going to get the kind of change we thought we were going to get....?

In other words, Reagan used to placate the religious right, tossing them gratuitous rhetoric when necessary but never really getting behind anything they favored to the point of instituting real change. Will this be our fate ala Obama...? Wink, wink, nod, nothing...?
I always knew Mickey Kaus was more like Mickey Mouse....

He must be Slate's appeasement to the wingers.
