Keith Olbermann - GOP state senator casts Obama as terrorist

Let's see: Palin was a vice presidential candidate; the kookaburras on the right are touting Lou Dobbs for president; the GOP has more creepy very stupid wingnuts in the party than Carter's got little liver pills (I've been waiting years to write that!); and then there's this whackjob out in Colorado.

It's scary. Overt racism masquerading as godliness, or patriotism, or plain old-fashioned fascism is rampant in this country. Stupidity and ignorance reign.

Watch the video and see how all that plays out in Colorado!

Carrie Prejean on Larry King

Ms. Prejean, rightwingnut, christianist porn star who just luuuuves Jesus and is a favorite of ultra-conservative Repugnicans everywhere, went on Larry King where she proceeded to have a melt-down. What a whack-job!

Keith Olbermann - Fox News proves Palin wrong

Sarah Palin is a liar, but we've known that for a long time. Now, in an hilarious scenario, it's Fox News that proves she is a liar!

Michele Bachmann breaks the rules

Perhaps the House will give her a break...I mean she is dumber than dogshit. Nah. She may be a broomstick, but she gets her marching orders from Jesus. Slap her with a big fine!

You're in the Army now

From what I've been reading, this cartoon isn't far from the truth.

AMA - Remove marijuana from Schedule 1 drug list

It's about time. And how many people have been sent to prison for years for possession of an ounce or less of MJ? We get smart so late!

From Crooks and Liars:

November 11, 2009 CNN

The American Medical Assn. on Tuesday urged the federal government to reconsider its classification of marijuana as a dangerous drug with no accepted medical use, a significant shift that puts the prestigious group behind calls for more research.

The nation's largest physicians organization, with about 250,000 member doctors, the AMA has maintained since 1997 that marijuana should remain a Schedule I controlled substance, the most restrictive category, which also includes heroin and LSD.

In changing its policy, the group said its goal was to clear the way to conduct clinical research, develop cannabis-based medicines and devise alternative ways to deliver the drug.

Rachel Maddow - The Influential C Streets and Health Care

If you don't think perverse religious conservatives hold power in Congress, this will awaken you! C Streets, members of the ultra-secretive The Family, played a big role in getting the Stupack anti-abortion amendment passed as part of the Health Reform bill.

It's downright scary! These are theocrats, secretly going about their business of re-creating the USA into a conservative "Christian" country. They swore an oath to uphold the Constitution, but that is secondary to their commitment to Christianize the nation!

From Crooks and Liars:

Rachel Maddow runs down the list for us of C-Street family members who also voted for Bart Stupak’s anti-abortion amendment yesterday. Nothing like having what amounts to a secretive religious cult making health care policy for women in the United States. As Rachel noted that list includes:

Rep. Bart Stupak D-MI
Rep. Joe Pitts R-PA
Rep. Ike Skelton D-MO
Rep. Mike McIntyre D-NC
Rep. John Tanner D-TN
Rep. Lincoln Davis D-TN
Rep. Dan Boren D-OK
Rep. Heath Shuler D-NC

Jeff Sharlet joined Rachel to discuss The C-Street Family's ever growing influence within the Democratic Party.

Maddow: What are Congressman Stupak and Congressman Pitts’ connections to C-Street and The Family? Is one of them more deeply involved than the other?

Sharlet: Yeah, well Congressman Pitts has been involved with The Family since 1976 and in the 1980’s he was instrumental in bringing anti-abortion politics into this kind of elite fundamentalism that until that point had been focused on economics and foreign affairs. Bart Stupak meanwhile has been living at C-Street since at least 2002 when he told the Los Angeles Times “we kind of don’t talk about what happens here”.

Maddow: Are there signs that The Family had anything to do with the Stupak-Pitts amendment? I mean this is quite a legislative coup that they’ve pulled off.

Sharlet: Well, you have to consider that Congressman Pitts is what The Family calls a core member. This is a little like being on the board of directors. You can go on line and find video of him talking about the objectives of the group is to create a god led government. He has worked over the years to prevent not only abortion but AIDS education overseas and so this has been a life-long project for him going back years and years and years. Stupak is a little bit newer to this issue and I think what you really have to question here is Pitts who’s been active in this for a long time and was bringing up these amendments I think in Stupak and his brother in The Family as it was called, found a Democrat to carry the issue for him.

Maddow: So you think this legislative work reflects more the skills, connections, background of Congressman Pitts than it does Bart Stupak?

Sharlet: Yeah well with respect to Congressman Stupak nobody ever called him the brightest bulb on the porch. Everybody likes him, he’s a good guy; Pitts is a guy who’s been doing this for a long time. When he was a state legislator he was head of a national state legislative group that was really doing anti-abortion work on the state level before anyone was really paying attention to it. He is a long term strategist and I think we really have to look at that broader connection and how he played this issue.

Maddow: Let me ask you about some of the other conventional wisdom here because the sort of conventional explanation for this is that this anti-abortion amendment to health reform resulted mostly from the Catholic Bishops pressuring Catholic politicians to support it but I know that you think it’s bigger than that. Can you explain why?

Sharlet: Well I think it’s unfair to Catholics, I think it’s unfair to Evangelicals. First of all most of the press is focused on Catholics despite the fact that a number of the Congressmen involved in this are not Catholic including Congressman Pitts and including Congressman Shuler who you mentioned and frankly the majority of American Catholics are pro-choice and that’s not true of the majority of American Evangelicals. I think it’s a very comfortable story to tell ourselves that this is just traditional Catholic conservatism rather than facing the fact there is a growing and new Evangelical, conservative Evangelical influence within the Democratic Party.

Maddow: We have talked a little about this in the past, but obviously because we’ve been talking about a form of conservatism and how this religious movement dovetails in many ways with a lot of conservative agenda items do you feel like we’ve overlooked or generally speaking it’s been overlooked how conservative Democrats are part of this too?

Sharlet: Yeah, absolutely. Conservative Democrats have made this happen. I mean look here we are with a fully Democratic government and Joe Pitts and his colleagues like Chris Smith and so on have just achieved a goal they could not achieve during eight years of Bush and they’ve done it with Democratic help and they’ve done it with—I think what’s crucial is you have to look at the traditional Catholic pro-life votes, respect those—but look at the new influence of Evangelicals Democrats like Heath Shuler, traditionally Evangelical Democrats, like Joe Pitts, and you see a growing movement within the Democratic Party that we just haven’t faced up to yet.+

Christopher Hitchens takes on the Catholic Church

I don't always agree with Christopher Hitchens, in particular I have found his support of the war in Iraq reprehensible, but I agree 100% with everything he has to say as he decimates Roman Catholicism for its anti-human behavior over the past 2000 years!

Once he is done speaking, a British woman convert to Catholicism takes Mr. Hitchens to task. She bombs badly and looks, quite frankly, like a total fool.

Rachel Maddow explains Virginia Foxx

There really is no explanation for the broomstick from North Carolina. Virginia Foxx has to be one of the most stupid and moronic members ever to sit in Congress...well, except for other members from South Carolina, Texas, Oklahoma, etc.

Still and all, Foxx is the epitome of a Jesus-loving hypocrite who twists her religion into an unrecognizable horror!

Keith Olbermann - Worst Person in the World: Glenn Beck (again!)

One of Mr. Olbermann's better "Worst Person" comments. In the end he says (and I will stand and say it with him) to Glenn Beck: "Go to hell!"
