Think of Me as a Virtual Pitchfork Heading to DC
Also, I am finding that my procrastination problem makes me a bit sloth-y in doing the cross-posting of my posts elsewhere to here. I'd blame Global Warming, but that's totally fake and a huge hoax.

It’s so surreal, so discordant with what the president has told the American people, so fantastically contrary to everything he campaigned on, that I will simply wait for more confirmation than this before commenting further. I simply cannot believe it. I know the president is not against all wars – just dumb ones. But could any war be dumber than this – in a place with no potential for civil society, wrecked by totalitarianism, riven by tribalism, in defense of rebels we do not know and who are clearly insufficient to the task?
Love hurts, huh Sully?
But good news! He seems to have found an outlet for his pain; a return to his fond vocation as Forensic Fancy Womb Specialist:
It’s the weirdest sign that you may be expecting:
In fact, says author Sera Young, in some cultures eating dirt is the go-to pregnancy “gotcha” symptom—the same way that every American knows to suspect a woman who pukes in the morning, or wants pickles with her ice cream.
Let the investigations begin. I hope he thought to get dirt samples from Alaska!
Oh, how it hurts … Sully is now reaching out to the Tea Party (for reals!) and is preparing himself for the impeachment of the dictatorial Obama.
He’s been a famous body builder. He’s been a killer cyborg from the future. He’s been Governor of California. And now, in this week’s exclusive cover scoop, Arnold Schwarzenegger reveals his plans for the next phase of his extraordinary career: He’s going be a cartoon superhero, known as The Governator. “When I ran for governor back in 2003 and I started hearing people talking about ‘the Governator,’ I thought the word was so cool,” Schwarzenegger, 63, tells EW in his first press interview since leaving office last January. (Watch an EW-exclusive video of Schwarzeneggertalking about the project.) “The word Governator combined two worlds: the world of politics and the movie world. And [this cartoon] brings everything together. It combines the governor, the Terminator, the bodybuilding world, the True Lies…”
Oh, the humanity.

Evidently, the newspeak definition of ‘misinformation’ is actually ‘opinions with which I don’t agree’. According to Media Matters for America, that is, as The Right Sphere points out. They use an example given in Howard Kurtz’s article “Partisan Organizations Use Sound Bite Warfare” wherein Kurtz describes the “bat signal” given out by MMFA. This coordinated attack sprung from Governor Mike Huckabee making a remark on a radio show about Natalie Portman’s pregnancy and how he thought she was “boasting” about unwed motherhood:
Media Matters mission, and what presumably allows them the tax exempt 501(c)(3) status, is as follows:
Media Matters for America is a Web-based, not-for-profit, 501(c)(3) progressive research and information center dedicated to comprehensively monitoring, analyzing, and correcting conservative misinformation in the U.S. media.
Do you see the problem yet? No? They’re allowed tax exempt status because they claim to be an educational organization dedicated to correcting conservative misinformation. Now go back and read what Huckabee said. Where’s the misinformation? Since when is a person’s personal opinion “misinformation”? Huckabee didn’t make any declaration of fact. He wasn’t promoting a falsehood. He was simply expressing his opinion on Natalie Portman’s pregnancy. You can disagree or agree with Huckabee, but he wasn’t lying about anything. It was just a controversial statement which, as Kurtz pointed out, no one noticed for three days.
Huh. I’m no tax policy expert nor do I even have vast experience as a community organizer from which to draw, but it seems to me as if their whole tax exempt deal is baloney. They aren’t ‘correcting misinformation’. They are trying to smear people for having opinions that they think are icky.
Eric Boehlert should rename himself Senior Fellow of Malicious “Othering”.
The left has been frantically pushing the spin regarding Planned Parenthood and the recent move to stop providing them with federal funding (from we, the taxpayers). Screeching things like “If you defund Planned Parenthood, women will die! They won’t be able to get mammograms. Why do you hate women and their girl bits?”
As many of us know, Planned Parenthood does not, nor have they ever, provided mammograms. That has not stopped them from outright lying about this in an attempt to scare people into giving them money:
“Most prominently, Planned Parenthood CEO Cecile Richards recently appeared on The Joy Behar Show to oppose the Pence Amendment to end Planned Parenthood’s taxpayer subsidies, claiming, “If this bill ever becomes law, millions of women in this country are gonna lose their healthcare access–not to abortion services–to basic family planning, you know, mammograms.”
Oh really, Cecile Richards? Care to explain these videos taken by Live Action?
I won’t hold my breath.

Ah, the journalistic integrity of NBC News. News is, of course, used extremely loosely by NBC. If it is something bad about them or their parent company General Electric, no one need know about it. We probably wouldn’t understand the “nuance” anyway, right Brian Williams?
“If people in your audience are savvy enough to raise the question of why you’re covering your own parent company differently than another company,” she said, “then it doesn’t matter what the answer is. You’ve undermined your credibility. The problem for any news organization is death by a thousand daggers.”
Um. I think those thousand daggers have done their job already.
From That’s What She Said:
The Nanny State in all its pervasive glory. For The Children ™ — no basketball poles/hoops on private property. I wonder how Michelle Obama feels about this. I mean, it is counter-intuitive to her Let’s Move program, no?
Also note that the police officer lied right on tape. She clearly told the man that he could keep the pole and that they would lay it down in his driveway. Mere seconds later, that request is refused and she pretends she never *just said* any such thing.
We have one of those at the end of our cul de sac. Just try and pry our kids’ basketball hoopies out of our cold dead hands.
