"Nearly half of the Arizona Legislature wants to force President Barack Obama to show his birth certificate to state officials if he runs for re-election. All 40 co-sponsors are Republicans, comprising 75 percent of the GOP caucus. Two of them have since resigned to run for Congress."

CNN Headline: “Poll: Dems should take first step to bridge divide”
First sentence of article: “Two-thirds of Americans think that the Republicans in Congress are not doing enough to cooperate with President Obama, poll suggests.”
Update: people are fucking stupid.

Not satisfied with anything, the House minority leader found a new nonissue to flipflop over.
For months now, republicans in Congress have been complaining that health care reform legislation put forward by congressional Democrats is too long.This after complaining when the WH posted their bill online. After Boner asked them to.
“All you need to know is there are 1,990 pages,” whined John Boehner of the health care bill in October. “That should tell you everything.”
But when President Obama released a proposal yesterday bridging the differences between the House and Senate bills, Boehner’s office changed its complaint and argued that it was too short.
Oh, and the number of pages in the republican health care plan? One.

Bob “Bob Dole” Dole and Dick “dick” Cheney undergoing the finest health care experience you can’t afford.
To stop you from picturing Bob Dole hospitalized for an erection lasting 4 or more hours, there’s this. Sigh.

In a letter to Penthouse Forum, serial adulterer Newt Gingrich explains how to treat a bitch.
Oh, sorry, he wrote an op-ed in Time on how the administration should be bipartisan by giving up all they worked for and the repuglicans can be bipartisan by making Obama and the Democrats use the GOP’s ideas. If they actually had any.
So, basically, I was right the first time.

Fox Noise prior to CPAC: "This is where the next President will be anointed!"
Fox Noise after Ron Paul wins the CPAC poll: "These things are way unscientific. It's really more about bragging rights, anyway. Somebody freeped the poll. There’s nothing to see here, move along.”
CPAC participants voted for Paul as their favored candidate by some 31 percent, giving him the largest margin of victory in recent years. Fudge-packing dog-abuser Mitt Romney, who has won the vote over the last three years, was the runner-up with 22 percent. Disasta from Alaska Sarah Palin was third with seven percent.One or two points above “Other” and “Can’t Decide”.

Anger erupted in the wingnut twitterdrome as
beloved Republican savior sell-out RINO Scott Brown joined Democrats and helped destroy the GOP filibuster on the new jobs bill.
"I came to Washington to be an independent voice, to put politics aside, and to do everything in my power to help create jobs for Massachusetts families. I wish the tax cuts were deeper and broader, but I will vote for it because it contains measures that will help put people back to work,” Brown said, not quite adding "Mitch McConnell can suck my big pearly one.”
Bonus actual quote: “Brown offered a final denunciation of the GOP before the vote: ‘My friends on the other side of the aisle are looking for ways not to vote for this," he said, accusing them of putting "partisanship ahead of people.’"
Holy crap. That was beautiful.

Instead of broadcasting some actual good news, fair und balanced nutwork stars circlejerk themselves by replaying bon mots from the recent CPAC cuntvention and “interviewing” fellow Fux Nertz hosts on “what’s wrong” with America.
NY Times: Plea by Najibullah Zazi, the wanna-be bomber of the New York subway system, "marks the successful prosecution of a terrorist in an advanced plot.”
Newsweek: Plea "provides fresh ammunition for Obama administration officials."
WaComPo: Plea "gave the Obama administration a new argument in its battle with Republicans on the treatment of terrorists -- the deal demonstrated the ability of the US court system to dispense justice to terrorists."
Fux Nooze: “Tiger Woods… Is it true what they say about black men?”

You’d think a irrelevant windbag and serial adulterer who found Jesus would know its wrong to bear false witness. But no.
Newt Gingrich tried on Wednesday to brush off the glaring gaffe he made this week on "The Daily Show." But in doing so, the former GOP House Speaker only dug his hole deeper…”I think they should rename themselves the Alzeheimer's Party, because no one in it can remember anything they said or did prior to yesterday.” – comment from the interweb.
In a dig at the Obama White House, he added: "Treating terrorists like criminals wrong no matter who is Pres."
That's a standard GOP talking point, and yet when President Bush moved the Padilla case from a military setting to the criminal system, it was Gingrich who came to his defense despite conservative howls of protest, a Democratic source points out.

Hotel is ordered to remove Al Gore book, brown M&Ms from hick diva’s room.
The customary copy of "An Inconvenient Truth" was conveniently missing from Sarah Palin's room at the eco-friendly Gaia Shasta Hotel & Spa, where the average hockey-mom and her daughter freshened up before Palin's appearances at a recent conference in Redding.”She only reads books by the Founding Fathers, her own palms, and of course all of the newspapers,” the staffer added, rolling her eyes.
"We were under strict instructions" to make sure the Gore books were removed from rooms used by Palin and other conference VIPs, a hotel staffer said last night.

Just when you think their level of hypocrisy and hopped-up outrage couldn't be topped, they continue to surprise....Indeed. From Grey Matter.
The latest: President Obama is killing too many terrorists. Yes, he's been too successful at taking out those which we presumably want taken out.
[J]ust imagine if a piece like this appeared during Bush/Cheney's reign, accusing them of killing too many terrorists. Oh, the outcry that would've occurred from the screeching right, the fulminating condemnation riddled with labels like "unpatriotic," "enemy sympathizer" and "treason" to name a few. Yet here we are, this tripe published without a peep from the Country First crowd. Just crickets.

"You guys are fucking crazy,” says teabagger Erick “Eric” Erickson:
"If you think 9/11 was an inside job or you really want to debate whether or not Barack Obama is an American citizen eligible to be President, RedState is not a place for you," he wrote. "All of us have an obligation to vet those who we ally with. Just because someone is stridently against the size of government does not make him an ally if he also believes the U.S. Army blew up the World Trade Center. Such a person brings disrepute on us all, deservedly so."Hee! Indeed.

“If this is the war the party of stupid wants, let them have it. Let us see what their rightwing insanity has sown. Let us watch Sarah debate President Obama, crib notes and all. Because even though the entire Republican Congress was outmatched in a battle of wits only a few weeks ago, Sarah, being Sarah, will strut into any debate thinking she has the upper hand. And America needs to watch that, the arrogance of someone so hopelessly out of her league that she doesn’t even realize she’s out of her league, daring to take on President Obama…”You betcha!

But… but… teleprompters!
Palin is again refusing to allow cameras and photographers to record her public events. Palin is scheduled to speak in Florida at two separate events next month. The events require an attendee to purchase a $250 or $150 ticket and the press are not invited. Palin also barred the press from many of her book tour appearances.
It is possible Palin is attempting to prevent another "telepalmter" incident. Cameras caught Palin consulting crib notes written on her hand during the question and session at a recent teabagging party. Her use of a teleprompter was conveniently ignored.
Palin also is refusing to disclose what she is doing with the $100,000 speaking fee she received from the Tea Party Convention. Palin promised that the money would go to conservative causes but has not actually said what that means. Talking Points Memo has pressed Palin for details and she has thus far refused to provide any answers. Previously money from Palin's political action committee have been used to buy her own books.

“We didn’t have record snowfalls when I was being tortured by the Cong!,” he bleated before hanging up.

Hopey-changey workin’ out better for nation than the eternal No of the Grand Obstructionist Party.
Americans blame George W. Bush, Wall Street and Congress much more than they do Mr. Obama for the nation’s economic problems and the budget deficit, a new poll foundMore here.
They credit Mr. Obama more than republicans with making an effort at bipartisanship, and they back the White House’s policies on a variety of disputed issues, including allowing gays to serve openly in the military and repealing the Bush tax cuts for the wealthy.
Americans say Prez Obama better understands their needs and problems and has made more of an effort to be bipartisan than Congressional republicans, the poll found.
“Obama is certainly trying,” said Bonnie Ewasiuk, 60, of Woodbridge, Va. “I’m a Republican so I don’t like to go against the party, but Obama has reached out and had meetings and I don’t think the Republicans are going to be responsive. All you see from them is negativity.”
“It feels like an attempt to sabotage the majority and to regain control of power rather than working on a compromise,” John Smith, a Republican from Greenville, S.C., said of his party after participating in the poll and before getting violently TPed by Lim-bots.

7 out of 10 Americans believe “folksy” quitter is unqualified to be President, dogcatcher, including a metric buttload of her fellow republicans.
The 26 percent who say Palin is qualified is down 12 points from an ABC News/Washington Post poll from November. [The poll] also indicates that even a majority of Republicans now view Palin as not qualified to serve as commander-in-chief. According to the survey, 45 percent of conservatives see her as qualified, down 21 points from last November.
