    West Ashley resident Everett Garlington is among the estimated 180,000 people who could be disenfranchised if South Carolina's photo ID law holds up. His trouble: he misplaced his driver's license. True, he could get a replacement, but it will cost him more than $160 -- money he said the Department of Motor Vehicles wants because years ago he was late turning in a license plate. The other half of Garlington's troubles: Because his missing driver's license is still valid, the DMV won't issue an alternative photo ID to use at the polls. "If they had an election today, I couldn't...
  • Clyburn says Obama's issues all come back to black vs. white (projectile vomit alert)

    WASHINGTON -- U.S. Rep. Jim Clyburn, the highest-ranking African-American in Congress, on Wednesday blamed most of President Barack Obama's political problems on racism. Clyburn, the assistant Democratic leader of the U.S. House and a close ally of the president, offered his views in response to a question about Obama's re-election prospects next year. "I think they're improving every day," the South Carolina representative said. "I think the president has been a good president, a great commander-in-chief." Clyburn, who met his wife at a 1960 court hearing after a night in jail for taking part in a civil rights protest in...
  • Saw my first "Obama2012" bumper sticker today (Vanity)

    I went to the Stations of the Cross this evening at church. Okay, I knew he was running already; I just didn't know the bumper stickers were being produced. I saw the sticker and saw another one disparaging Fox News right next to a "Say one Hail Mary" sticker. Since it was Lent I quelled my urge to key their car.

    The Catholic League ^ | April 12, 2011 | Bill Donahue
    When the Boston Globe exposed massive wrongdoing in the Boston Archdiocese in 2002, Catholics were understandably angry. And when more horror stories surfaced elsewhere, we were furious. But now our anger is turning on those who are distorting the truth about priestly sexual abuse. That some are exploiting this issue for ideological and financial profit seems plain. Every time a new wave of accusations surfaces in one diocese, not coincidentally we see a spike in accusations in other dioceses. What is not often reported is that the vast majority of new accusations extend back decades. For example, for the first...

    “I was at – forgive the expression – a Christmas party,” NPR reporter Nina Totenberg interjected on Inside Washington in the weekend’s oddest cautionary separation from a common description for a common event, seemingly embarrassed to invoke any religious terminology for Christmas. She didn’t say what she’d prefer for parties this time of the year to be named. “Winter solstice party”? Just plain old “holiday party”? Or a “seasonal gathering”?

    Despite being down 37 percent in the polls to Republican South Carolina Sen. Jim DeMint six days out from the Election Day, Democratic Senate candidate Alvin Greene remains in high spirits — and is continuing to push his key message: “DeMint started the recession!” This morning, in a phone conversation with The Daily Caller from his South Carolina home, Alvin Greene explained his strategy for winning the race. “I am getting around to the fairs around the state — this fair season — and reminding the folks there that DeMint started the recession,” he said. “That’s the bottom line” Greene’s...

    After I reported last night that the Sharron Angle campaign had had a banner day fundraising, which the campaign attributed to the fact that The View co-host Joy Behar said of Angle on national television, “She’s going to hell, this bitch!” This morning, the Angle campaign tells me they sent flowers and a thank you note to Behar: Joy, Raised 150K online yesterday– thanks for your help. Sincerely, Sharron Angle.
  • United States of Hysteria (Dry Heave Alert)

    Los Angeles Times ^ | 8/22/2010 | Timothy Rutten
    If you re-engage the American media after a month out of the country, as I've done recently, it's hard not to conclude that hysteria now is the dominant characteristic of our politics and civic conversation. How else to explain the fact that questions like secession and nullification - issues that were resolved in blood by the Civil War more than a century ago - have come alive again and are routinely tossed around, not just by fringe figures but by Republican officeholders and candidates? For example, Zach Wamp, a Tennessee congressman who opposes the recently enacted health care reforms and...

  • John Kerry Ran Boston Marathon But Doesn't Remember His Time (and no record exists).

    Runner's World
    I just receive the latest issue of Runner's World today. It's bad enough that John Edwards is on the cover - but when I opened it up to read the athletic comparisons between Bush and Kerry I had to laugh. It lists John Kerry's athletic achievements, one of them being the Boston Marathon. It mentions that he ran the Boston Marathon in the 70's - but he doesn't remember his time, and no official record exists. Par for the course... Sorry, I couldn't find the story at the Runner's World website.
