Mooselini not … well, shit, there’s nothing I can say here that won’t instantly Godwinize this post.
Sarah Palin supporters are divided over her commitment to endorse John McCain’s Senate reelection bid. Though some understand and support her decision, many Palin supporters have criticized her for the decision, even comparing her to that most dreaded of creatures: a RINO.Ummm, on Hannity?”Where was she in VA? Where was she in NJ? Where was she in Mass?
“Guiliani showed up in Mass because he knew what was at stake. Perhaps, Sarah was too busy talking to her agent about her Fox deal. Where the hell was Sarah?”

Bill O'Reilly is said to be deeply displeased that world-class anus Sean Hannity got to interview Sarah Palin before him.”There’s only room for ONE gigantic lying weasel here, and that’s me!”
He was reported to have had a "hissy fit" when Hannity got the first interview.
O'Reilly is also said to be upset that Glenn Beck is closing in in the ratings.

Why do they hate America?
Republicans delight in depicting President Obama as hopelessly out of touch with average Americans, but the decision by the Republican National Committee to hold its winter meeting at an exclusive tropical resort is turning the accusation on its head.
[A]t a moment when millions are out of work and millions more struggling to get by, the party’s governing board is on the island of Oahu, sipping drinks poolside, catching rays on the beach that abuts the villa and raising questions about whether they’re as politically tone-deaf as they accuse the president of being.
Oh, but it's not all sunshine and pina coladas by the pool. No, no, no.

Drudge dickholder Andrew Breitbart – who tried repeatedly to tie Prez Obama to ACORN -- 'would like you to know that although he purchased his "life rights," hired him as a contributor, and pays him a large annual salary, he's not associated with James O'Keefe in any way, shape, or form.'

Obama's speech was a big hit with the American people, Hitler.
A large majority of Americans who watched President Obama's State of the Union Address generally approve of the proposals he outlined in his speech, according to a CBS News Poll conducted online immediately after the President's address.I hope Boehner's crying again.
Of the randomly selected 522 speech viewers questioned by CBS, 83 percent said they approved of the proposals the President made.

So if ACORN itself is "guilty" for something or other, based on what some of their employees did, what does that make rightwing faux "journalist" and Matt Drudge poodle Andrew Breitbart, who has now admitted that accused felon James O'Keefe worked for him?A hypocritical asshole? An odious, Drudge-humping cumbubble? A should-have-been-strangled-at-birth twathole? A fucking idiot? A lowlife gasbag? Much more at link above.
Even if we stipulate that Breitbart was not paying O'Keefe to break the law, its clear that ACORN was not paying its workers to break the law either --- at least no evidence exists to demonstrate otherwise. And yet, ACORN has long been charged by Breitbart, and Hewitt himself (a long-time leader in the GOP's phony "Democrats are committing massive voter fraud through ACORN!" movement), as being a "criminal organization" for having employed those workers who did break federal law by committing voter registration fraud in order to continue receiving their "fair salary."
So, again, if ACORN is "guilty" for all of that, what does that make Breitbart?

The FBI has arrested conservaturd fapboy/anti-ACORN pimp filmmaker James O’Keefe on a federal felony offense: Watergating a Democratic Senator. Excuse me while I go bust a gut laughing.
James “Nixon” O’Keefe, who won a major award as Republican Savior from his fellow rethuglicans, was among four men who were arrested Monday and accused of plotting to wiretap the New Orleans offices of Sen. Mary Landrieu.Bonus: it wasn’t just the Senator’s office they tried to bug. It was the main phone system of the federal building in downtown New Orleans, which includes
The Federal Public Defender

Well, now they can honor him for exposing the fraudulent and illegal activities of conservatards, right? Not bloody likely:
”[Y]et today, in light of these deplorable and illegal attacks on the office of a United States senator by their champion, Republicans have not offered a single iota of disgust, a whisper of indignation or even a hint of outrage."As par for the course, O’Keefe’s boss Andrew Not-So-Breitbart disavowed all knowledge. From Talking Points Memo (mostly):
Once we heard that O'Keefe got clipped, we wondered whether this was another job for Andrew Breitbart who published O'Keefe's ACORN videos. We just got hold of him and he responded: “Eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee! Eeeeeeeeeee eeeeee eeeeeeeeee!!!!1!, adding,”Liberal conspiracy!!1!!” and "I need to find information on this. I'm out of the loop on this. I will make my determination then on when to comment."I bet. A hysterical headline from Think Progress made me lol:

"It happens that this is Rove’s second divorce. Plus, Rove’s father was gay. And the timing is interesting… In right-wing circles, where rumors harden into facts at their first exposure to air — where, to cite just one example, Pres. Obama is a socialist-fascist Muslim who was born in Kenya and/or Indonesia — there is enough here to qualify as a 'solid rumor' that Rove is secretly gay and has left his wife for a famous erstwhile male escort.-- Heh. From our friends at the Pensito Review.
"Where there is smoke there is fire, or so they say, and with all these stories floating around, Rove needs to step up and come clean about his relationship with this former prostitute. He should avoid the mistake of letting the story fester on the Internet as Glenn Beck has done by refusing to discuss his role in the rape and murder of a young girl in 1990."

”Republicans refuse to join bipartisan budget deficit panel, on the grounds that fixing the problem would make the Democrats look good”-- from Fark.com. Actual story here, via No-Shit Daily.
Top Republicans on Wednesday were hostile toward President Obama’s plan to create a bipartisan commission on cutting projected deficits, raising doubts about the prospects of a main piece of his budget strategy.Yes, even though “out-of-control spending is scaring the hell out of the American people,” repuglican rep John Boehner will not lift a finger to help. The Party of No, ladies and gentleman. The Party of No who keeps weeping that they’re not being included.
Oh, see also “House minority leader warns his party against working with Democrats” at Politicon, from earlier today. House minority leader warns his party against working with Democrats. Yeah, we’re looking at YOU, Massholes, and all you miserable little pantywaists in the media whining how the Prez is shutting out rethugs. Fuck you.

Yes, another article from the Politicon. But it’s got Paul Krugman! And Firedoglake!
Paul Krugman’s announcement that he is near to “giving up” on President Barack Obama is fueling a new round of iberal revolt.
“Progressives are desperately in need of leadership; more specifically, House Democrats need to be told to pass the Senate bill, which isn’t what they wanted but is vastly better than nothing. And what we get from the great progressive hope, the man who was offering hope and change, is this,” Krugman wrote, directing readers to Obama’s comments in an interview with ABC News on Wednesday seemingly advocating a scaled back health bill.

Two of the biggest assholes on the planet are getting righteously blasted for their callous comments regarding the devastation in Haiti.
“The insensitivity is stunning,” says former Republican congressman.
Critics from both the left and right are denouncing their remarks as insensitive to the disaster and attempts to score political points off human tragedy.
Speaking on his radio show Wednesday, Limbaugh said the earthquake has played into Obama’s hands, allowing the president to look “compassionate” and “humanitarian” while at the same time bolstering his standing in both the “light-skinned and dark-skinned black community in this country.”
He added: “We've already donated to Haiti. It’s called the U.S. income tax.”
While Limbaugh received a modicum of support [from Newsbusters], nobody of note has stepped up to defend Robertson.

The continuing decline of civilization:
What an awful politicization of TV news.Or her constituents all over the country?
O'Reilly introduced the newest star in the Fox galaxy Tuesday night as a "news analyst." If what Palin did in her debut is news analysis, I'm the governor of Alaska and I can see Russia from my backyard."Nancy Pelosi," O'Reilly said to Palin, ".. do you think that she's a kook?"How would Palin know what Pelosi's San Francisco constituents think of her?
"I think she, too, is quite disconnected from what her constituents are telling her -- and constituents all over the country ..." Palin replied, before O'Reilly cut back in and upped the ante on Pelosi as "kook."
"Well, she's a San Francisco liberal," O'Reilly said. "But do you think she's actually crazy?"
"I doubt that her San Francisco constituents even are enamored with her policies and with the guidance she is providing this country."
"Is she further to the left in your opinion than Barack Obama?'
"Perhaps so, yes."
What a cart and pony show. O'Reilly is a TV master, Palin's a TV player, and together they are going to bring orgiastic TV delight to right-wing viewers...
I forgot how Palin speaks in a grammar and syntax unlike anyone else on this planet, but you get the idea. And I'll tell you what: In a protected TV environment like the one Fox and O'Reilly skillfully provided for her Tuesday night, I think she could be a red-hot ratings winner. And the country and our political conversation are going to be the poorer for it.

Somewhat taken aback, Lauer told McCain that he found it "somewhat surprising" that he didn't know anything about the vetting process, adding "You were the presidential candidate."Brrrrrrrrrrr.
McCain testily shot back by saying that he had no intention of "looking back over what happened over a year ago," adding, "I'm sorry, you'll have to get others to comment on it."
