  • Obama Campaign: 'Why The Hell Did Romney Pick This Guy?'

    This evening, the Obama campaign sent out its most desperate fundraising email yet. Following in the footsteps of their other emails cursing out Americans (e.g. “Let’s win the damn election”), and tweets deriding Obamacare opponents as “motherf***ers,” now the Obama campaign is spluttering mad over the Paul Ryan pick by the Romney campaign. Here’s their email, titled “What’s behind the Paul Ryan pick?”: Friend -- Congressman Paul Ryan is the poster boy for the extreme Republican leadership in a Congress whose overall approval rating is 12 percent. His plan to dismantle Medicare is deeply unpopular with the general public, and...

    CANTON, Ohio -- Rudy is the quintessential average white guy, right down to his last name. "It literally is Guy," he said, laughing at the irony. Born in New Eagle and raised in Charleroi in Pennsylvania's Monongahela Valley, Guy comes from a long line of Democrats. "My grandfather worked at Corning Glass, my father worked in the mines, the steel mill and finally at Corning," he recalled. "The family always had union ties, and that usually meant a tie to the Democratic Party." That's no longer true for him, however: "As my life started to improve financially, I realized that...

    From the Morning Jolt for this Tuesday: Biden Apparently Believes Obama Negotiates With Terrorists Now Somewhere along the line, in our modern political discourse, “terrorist” became a synonym for “someone who won’t give me what I want.” After the debt ceiling deal was struck, it took Vice President Joe Biden milliseconds and milliseconds to reinforce the suggestion that the administration and their allies are so morally myopic that they are almost genetically incapable of understanding what actually motivates the Tea Parties and others worried about runaway spending: “Vice President Joe Biden joined House Democrats in lashing tea party Republicans Monday,...

    Lawrence Guy is smart. You know this because in the spring semester of last year he got a GPA of nearly 3.5 in his classes at Arizona State, which allowed Guy, then a defensive tackle on the football team, to wear a patch on his jersey distinguishing him as one of the school’s “Scholar Ballers.” You know this too because when he grows comfortable with someone and his shyness falls away, the words spill out in torrents and his eyes shine bright. And then you see why his former football position coach, a grizzled-sounding man now working in the NFL,...

    When Mark Barrett moved to Guy, Arkansas, he had no idea the tiny town of less than 300 was nearly as rocking as the Southern California community he'd left behind. Six years and hundreds of seismic events later, Barrett says he's feeling it more and more. Since September, seismologists have recorded 700 temblors in the area. The largest in the current swarm, a 4.3-magnitude quake, shook the town at 2:13 a.m. Friday. The tremors appear to be rumbling through town with greater frequency. The Arkansas Geological Survey has recorded 50 quakes in and around Guy since Sunday. That includes Friday...

    Last night in front of an audience of hundreds at a presentation at the University of Southern California, TV personality Bill Nye — popularly known as the "Science Guy" — collapsed midsentence as he walked toward a podium. Early indications are that Nye is OK, but what's odd about the incident isn't so much Nye's slight health setback as the crowd's reaction. Or, more precisely, its nonreaction, according to several accounts. It appears that the students in attendance, rather than getting up from their seats to rush to Nye's aid, instead pulled out their mobile devices to post information about...

    Sarah Palin's attack on the "Family Guy" TV show and its portrayal of a young woman with Down syndrome has backfired, to a degree. The actress who did the voice-over for the young woman has hit back at Palin. From CNN News: Andrea Fay Friedman, the actress who herself has Down syndrome, said the scene was merely meant to be sarcastic. "I guess former Governor Palin does not have a sense of humor," she said in an e-mail to the New York Times. "I thought the line 'I am the daughter of the former governor of Alaska' was very funny....

    ...An Iranian expert, who is close to Tehran's thinking and did not wish to be identified, told the FT that Iran was not looking for a crisis in Lebanon at a critical moment in the nuclear diplomacy. He said Iran had received signals from members of the UN Security Council last week that it would be given more time to consider the west's proposals. It was inconceivable that Iran had ordered Hizbollah to take Israeli soldiers prisoner. Iran wanted a negotiated way out of the nuclear stand-off, he said. He argued that Israel's fierce retaliation for the abduction of the...

    Ex-Ark. Governor Loses Bid to Change Plea By KELLY P. KISSEL Associated Press Writer Jim Guy Tucker LITTLE ROCK, Ark. — A federal appeals court rejected former Gov. Jim Guy Tucker's bid to withdraw his guilty plea in a tax fraud case that arose during the Whitewater investigation of his predecessor, Bill Clinton. Tucker admitted in 1998 that he conspired to impede the Internal Revenue Service by hiding the sale of a cable television business. The plea came two years after he was convicted of fraud in a case also brought by Whitewater prosecutor Kenneth Starr. Tucker resigned but was...

    Dems weigh how Roberts vote will play By Geoff Earle As new information emerges about Judge John Roberts’s conservative writing, Republicans are bracing for a more contentious confirmation process than previously anticipated. But the tougher grilling could also provide those Democrats mulling a run for the White House with a golden opportunity to build constituencies and raise their national profiles. The Roberts vote, slated for late September, could have a high enough profile that Democratic primary voters will remember it in 2006 and 2007, particularly if Roberts is confirmed and the Supreme Court hands down a major ruling on...

    When Incrementalism Really Means Compromise I was a mere high school student when I attended my first "contemporary" church service during the "Jesus Freak" movement of the early 1970's in Costa Mesa, California.  Up to that point in my life, I was exposed to more formal type church services only.  Nevertheless, this new kind of church service shocked me very little, because I was made aware (many times, until the point was driven home), of the "logic" behind this modern type worship. The example I heard most promoting the positive aspects of this new movement was, "we are building bridges to...

    BETHANY - Democratic presidential candidate Dennis Kucinich made a quick stop in Oklahoma on Tuesday, blasting international trade compacts and promising to end American involvement in Iraq. “It’s time to end the occupation of Iraq and bring our troops home,” he told a crowd of about 75 at Wiley Post Airport. “The Iraq war has left us wasting tens of billions of dollars for a war that didn’t have to be fought.” Kucinich made the stop in Oklahoma as part of a three-day tour across 11 states to formally announce his candidacy for president. The trip began in Cleveland, where...

    New York City has so many things that make it unique; it makes it hard to decide where to start. Then again, the cash strapped city just opened a new high school at a cost of about 3 million dollars which doesn’t allow straight students to attend. However, if you are gay or bisexual or a transgender, welcome home. Seriously. The powers that be in NYC have decided that they have collected enough money from fining smokers in public places, and animal lovers in subways, and can now spend city money to ensure that straight people are no where in...

    YOU'VE got to hand it to Saddam. In one brisk, neat letter to Kofi Annan, he pulled the rug from right under George Bush's feet. There was the American president last week, playing the role of multilateralist, warning the world that Iraq had one last chance through the UN to avoid Armageddon. "If the Iraqi regime wishes peace," he told us all in the General Assembly, "it will immediately and unconditionally forswear, disclose and remove or destroy all weapons of mass destruction, long range missiles and all related material." And that, of course, is the point. Saddam would do everything...
