Birther and racists? My ass.

"While leftist networks like MSNBC try to associate the entire conservative movement with birthers and racists ... " Tim Graham, Newsbusters

I readily stipulate that the legitimate questioning of Obama's birth now serves as a distraction.  Okay?  Even though we birthers own 100% of the facts, agitpropped mistakes notwithstanding.  But f**k you Graham! For equating us with racists.  You've been hanging around Liberals too long.  My advice move to a farm in the Midwest and work out of the kitchen for a year.  'Till you get grounded.
I hope we're still friends.

Moving on from where I left off

Daily Kos Yells at Media: Don't You See GOP Wants a 'Civil War'?

... liberals might want to ponder that consistent embarrassment known as the Daily Kos. On Saturday, "WinSmith" declared his outrage that the media would treat Republicans with civility, and the Stewarts and Colberts would merely mock them -- when they are destroying the country and want Obama dead (emphasis in the original): 

Where are the pundits, the elected officials and the media voices to say one simple thing: the republican party has gone too far.  That the primal scream of angry, hate filled, incoherent savagery on display is destroying the fabric of this country.

  1. The words "President Biden" aside, the thought of  boulevards, schools and airports being named after a martyred Obama is so repugnant to me, that I'd throw myself in front of any bullet.
  2. The GOP Wants a Civil War?  Puh-leeze.  The GOP is way too wishy-washy.  Hell, I don't even want Civil War, it would create living hell in perpetuity.  Before living under a nation remade in Obama's image, I'd want secession of several states, and a new nation named The United States of America, Original Recipe®

Olbermann's Fat Lady

 The Fat Lady Sings for Keith Olbermann
The viewers of "Countdown with Keith Olbermann" have been heading for the exits for the past year as part of a general exodus from MS-NBC.

The last-place cable network decided two years ago that Olbermanns "women problem" was costing it viewers and ordered him to find -- and not beat -- his inner woman. His inner woman turned out to be Martha Stewart, on whose show he baked a cake, savaged Sarah Palin, and extolled the virtues of gay marriage -- all of which did nothing for his mushrooming gender gap. [Full Monty]
ASIDE: In another inscrutable act by Network TV, Olbermann serves as co-host on NBC's Football Night in America. Rush Limbaugh, whose popularity exceeds Olbermann's about a trillion fold, was axed from Monday Night Foottball (on a manufactured outrage) because he was deemed too political.  The mind boggles, 

The Axe Axed

 When Democrats Eat Their Dead

Al Franken is on stage again.  He's playing Stalin to David Axelrod's Trotsky.
“Sen. Al Franken ripped into White House senior adviser David Axelrod this week during a tense, closed-door session with Senate Democrats. Five sources who were in the room tell POLITICO that Franken criticized Axelrod for the administration’s failure to provide clarity or direction on health care and the other big bills it wants Congress to enact.[Full]
Okay, that was a slightly flawed analogy.  Stalin purged Trotsky for being less than a balls-out Commie (when the word meant something). Axelrod is every bit the  Progressive that Franken is, but as political adviser to Obama it's his job to recognize the political landscape - one currently having Obama Democrats as popular as Blue Ointment is with pubic lice.  Franken of course is merely deranged.

Satirist Leaves Examiner to Spend More Time with Obama

Although Ott refused to confirm it publicly, White House insiders say Ott will ghostwrite even more of the president's speeches.  Like so many of his professional journalism colleagues, Ott will make the transition to the White House payroll "without really having to change anything about how I write."
