In slideshow, Rep. Joe Barton declares war on the Obama administration

Joe BoltonIf the Obama administration was hoping to see hints of bipartisanship from the Hill, it might want to skip over the House Energy and Commerce Committee.

The committee's ranking Republican, Rep. Joe L. Barton (Tex.), has a slide presentation that he's e-mailing to colleagues, pledging to do for the administration what Gen. George Patton and company did for Germany. The first slides are standard campaign material, with Barton asking to be elected by the new House Republican majority to be chairman of the committee.


How Sarah Palin flunks feminism

Sarah Palin fails feminismThe governor-turned-reality-TV-star’s new book dives into feminist history—distorting and misunderstanding it every step of the way. In some ways, it’s a good thing that Sarah Palin calls herself a feminist. It means that, even among conservatives, women’s equality has become a normative position, the starting point for debate.

It means that feminism has gone from something that the right wants to destroy to something it wants to appropriate. That’s progress, of a sort.

America's Super-Secret War Criminal

George Herbert Walker BushThe life of George Herbert Walker Bush represents one of the most corrupt and devious people to ever hold the office of the presidency hostage. He is not deserving of anything but an actual trial for his treasons against the United States and the millions of people that he was responsible for murdering during his various official positions in the government.

As Vice-President, GHW Bush was able to cash-in on what he had done (for himself) as CIA Director (1976-77) when he began his ventures into drugs and guns around the world. In 1990 Noriega was snatched from power by Bush, and over 4,000 Panamanians were secretly burned alive in the three day US military attack on Panama in order to silence Noriega; about GHW Bush's role in guns and drugs in this hemisphere.

I Voted Republican - Say it Loud, Say it Proud! iVotedRepublican

You gotta love this tee says it all!  It should be worn by every single person who voted against his or her own interests in this midterm election. What is it about self-destruction that GOP supporters don't understand? Never mind, just keep the federal government out of their Medicare, their veteran's benefits, their Social Security, their Department of Education, their EPA, - stop them from regulating toxins in their food, their air, and their water, and, of course....keep the giverment from stopping the financial institutions from robbing them blind again.  The inmates have taken over much of the asylum, and it's only a matter of time until they run the whole damn place.
