  • The Revolting Left Revolts

    In a stunning reversal of fortune for President Barack Obama, top progressives are attacking the health-reform plan moving through the Senate as “hollow,” “unsupportable” and a sellout to corporate interests. Republicans, after plotting for months to sink the signature legislation of Obama’s first year, suddenly think that Democrats might wind up doing it for them. Most dangerously for White House chances of assembling 60 Senate votes, former Vermont Gov. Howard Dean launched a third day of attacks on the emerging bill, arguing in a Washington Post op-ed that it meets none of his benchmarks for “real reform

    Obama's Chief of Staff Refuses to Go to Work Because of Media Stakeout The President-elect's chief of staff, Rahm Emanuel, said today he won't go to the Chicago Presidential transition offices in order to avoid reporters seeking to ask him whether he had contact with Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich about the Senate seat vacated by Barack Obama's election. Emanuel appeared "beet-red," according to an ABC News cameraman who was invited inside by Emmanuel to use his bathroom this morning. "I'm getting regular death threats. You've put my home address on national television. I'm pissed at the networks. You've intruded too...

    LEWISTON, Maine — U.S. prosecutors are not pursuing charges against a man who rolled a pig's head into a mosque. Brent Matthews faces a state misdemeanor charge of desecration of a place of worship. State prosecutors also won a court order requiring him to stay away from the mosque. Matthews, 33, has insisted the July 3 incident was intended as a joke. The pig's head rolled into the mosque as about 40 people were praying. Many Muslims consider pork and pork products unclean and offensive. FBI agents and federal prosecutors looked into federal hate crime charges but ultimately decided to...

    New York – Glum Republicans might turn their attention to the Libertarian Party to vent their anger. Libertarians are a generally Republican-leaning constituency, but over the last few years, their discontent has grown plain. It isn't just the war, which some libertarians supported, but the corruption and insider dealing, and particularly the massive expansion of spending. Mr Bush's much-vaunted prescription drug benefit for seniors, they fume, has opened up another gaping hole in America's fiscal situation, while the only issue that really seemed to energise congress was passing special laws to keep a brain-damaged woman on life support. In two of the...

  • If you Quote them, it's a "hit-piece"

    Harry Reid stood on the floor of the Senate and cried like a baby about the President sending out a listing of Reid's voting record. If you quote them, then your producing a "hit-piece"; if you talk ABOUT them, then it's a personal attack. But if THEY do it then it's alright.......... Is there a web site called "DemDoubleStandard.com"????
