night everyone

A very, very, very big thank you again to Henry VIII (!) for visiting us today (here) – thrilled to have you here, Mr Healy!



Bye bye Muppets, hello the Living Dead…..


Worried about Huntsman?

Nate Silver: …. polling worse than Mr. Gingrich was Mr. Huntsman. About half of the views Republicans expressed about Mr. Huntsman were negative, producing an Unacceptably Index of 51 percent.

Thank you Suzanne






See you tomorrow 😉

    Why are the republicans so enthralled with Cain?

    • June 9, 2011 at 9:38 pm

      Bc they think he can take away the African American vote from the president.
      That is how they think, with skin color and not policy!

      Deep down Republicans wis they had President Obama on their side. They are mad because they don’t have him.

        That’s true. So much so they thought Jindal would be their “Obama” and brought him out after PBO’s first primetime address. Then Michael Steele as RNC chair went old very quickly. Then they thought that Thune would be their “Obama” but that didn’t work out too well either. They are still looking for their “Obama” but can’t seem to find a suitable match.

          And just watched Stephen Colbert do a beautiful truthful breakdown and takedown of Romney’s business history. It will be well worth posting tomorrow. It would be well worth a TV ad if he would ever get the nomination. A little reality about this Gordon Gecko/Romney dude.

      If there was no Obama, Cain wouldn’t be getting the time of day, just like Michael Steele before him. But since there is a brilliant Democratic President who happens to be African American named Barack Obama, they are willing to grab the nearest black dude — anybody with dark skin will do. It’s the crazy ol’ GOP way of “proving” they’re not racists 🙄 .

      One Republican caller called into Randi Rhodes last week and claimed that having Cain on their roster proves that they’re not racist. yup.

    *looks at Huntsman’s poll numbers and laughs*

    I am confident in PBO’s re-election, and never thought Huntsman would be able to beat our Prez, but I must admit these unfavorable numbers are even higher than I would have thought. The poll says it is of people who have an opinion of the candidate. I don’t do most polls, but I do pay attention to things like personal favorability or likability because I think those numbers reflect a candidate’s true potential. So this is welcome, but a little puzzling news to me. I didn’t think most people even knew who he was. Now, it could be that only few people actually knew who he was, and of that small number more than half viewed him unfavorably. Could it be the religion? Could it really be that they hate he worked for Obama — something I thought would have very little effect? Hmmmmm….

      Just ask the guy from Florida (Charlie Crist) who had the unfortunate privilege of being photographed in a simple “man hug” with PBO. That sealed his fate with the GOP. Anyone who has had minimal association with PBO will not be seen favorably by the GOP.

      • June 9, 2011 at 10:42 pm

        True, true — I remember Crist. If this is the case with Huntsman, then it truly was a master stroke by PBO to send him to China. He won’t even make it out of the primaries to eventually lose to the Prez. Ha!

          President Obama said as much during the forum he had with the GOP house members inb Baltimore Febuary last year. He told them that they have essentially backed themselves in a corner by making it so difficult for Republican officials to be seen cooperating with the President on any level – and he used the Christie example.

    Chipsticks, your new ‘candidates’ picture really captures the essence of how the republican field of candidates have progressed, or regressed, in recent weeks. Kinda sad really, but still good for a few laughs.

    G’night all. Now to go back and read all the posts I’ve missed these last few, before the approaching storm forces me off.

    Joe “you lie” Wilson of SC has endorsed Pawlenty. First, this guy has an inflated sence of his importance and secondly, Pawlently is doing poorly in the polls; how is this supposed to be helpful? Joe’s deep disrespect toward the president was the worst thing that i have ever seen. Karma is a bitch and Joe’s reckoning will be coming just as it did for the Chump, Newt, and others who have relleased their bile on PBO.

    Good night Chipsticks and TOD family; looking forward to exciting days and great strides for our country.

    I see that that creep Joe “you lie!” Wilson has endorsed Pawlenty. My, he certainly has an inflated idea of his importance.

    Keep the faith everyone, PBO’s got this. Everything else is just white noise.

      Joe “you lie” Wilson is a prime example of everything that is wrong with this country right now. An endorsement from him is nothing to brag about.

      June 10, 2011 at 12:42 am

      This article is pretty silly, and clearly written by people who know nothing about this President. First, just looking at one day of pictures of the President out and about – whether he’s doing official business or informal – you can see that his heart is in whatever he’s doing. And who in their life doesn’t have an ultra-professional persona that they put on at work when they’re dealing with serious issues or meetings? To expect otherwise from this President is childish. Also, why do these people keep comparing President Obama with President Clinton? I find President Obama to be very authentic and genuine, and trustworthy. I can’t say the same for President Clinton, even though he came across as warm and personable. But the bottom line is: why do we have to compare two separate people, as though they are supposed to behave the exact same way? Clinton faced his own problems and was President a decade and more ago. President Obama is the president right now. If they want to compare him at all, then compare him with the guy who left him a huge mess to clean up. But, even then, President Obama is incomparable – he’s in a league of his own.

        June 10, 2011 at 1:30 am

        I agree that was a very silly article. I really dislike Politico!

        • June 10, 2011 at 6:58 am

          Theo67, agree with everything you said. That article was written by that Julie Mason creature who is really vile. Everything she writes about PBO is twisted and snarky. She’s a Maureen Dowd wannabee. And she’s a pitiful writer. She never writes anything of substance. And as you said, she’s dead wrong. These republicans really hate that PBO is so darn intelligent and brilliant, unlike their idol George Bush.. Bush was folksy (according to them) all the time because he was just not intelligent. His thinking was always on C- student level. He had a frat boy, spoiled brat mentality. He didn’t even know how to show respect to world leaders (remember the shoulder rub he gave Merkel). He was just an embarrassment.

          PBO is the most down to earth person ever. Millions of people here and around the world see that. Folks like Mason and Politico see it too and want to destroy that by telling people the opposite. It’s the good old Rovian strategy at work. Attack your opponent’s strength by claiming they are just the opposite. Example: John Kerry , war hero so paint him as a coward and use lying former military to do it.

          Again, we know better and America knows better too.

    Hi Ms Chipsticks, you replied to my last night’s pitiful cry, and I feel like my ties to the family are still there!!! 😆 😆 😆 You are such a darling, thanks! {Chipsticks}. My young ‘guests’ are with me only until (and if) their parent / family get their act together. One can hope that before that, I’ll be able to help effect some change in their reactions to each other that will lessen the need for intense supervision. I’ll ease myself back into family interactions here as soon as I can, gradually if need be, so don’t be giving my chair to anyone else. 😉 Chip siblings, I really do miss you all. Reading all comments well after they’ve been written is just not the same, but a man’s gotta do what a man has to do [this better apply to women too!]. Now I’m off to read all I can for tonight.

    Good night, sleep tight, and …………have a happy Friday, when it comes your way!

    Very insightful and profound commentary TOD family. The Republican Party is just looking for another Obama – the problem is that they look to superficialities and not substance. Obama’s substance cannot be replicated. It’s almost as if they think “Gee, by golly -black people are in, let us go and get us a black person” It’s pathetic and insulting, pretty soon they will get a nice brown grocery bag or a brown M&M.
    What I don’t understand is the people of color in the Republican Party – they think they can be apart of a collective that fan the flames of racism, homophobia, religious fundamentalism and classism and still garner the respect of their colleagues. The Republican Party had absolutely no respect or regard for Steele. When the Republican Party produced the “Puff the Magic Negro” spoof and Steel defiantly defended such nonsense it spoke to how people will sell their soul for even the appearance of power.
    They quickly dismissed Jindal when they realized that he could not spar intellectually with Obama even with Obama not being present, I’m referencing when he was charged with offering the rebuttal to Obama’s speech. Jindal produced his birth certificate as if to legitimize a vicious witch hunt and act like this should be a part of the political process. America is a nation of immigrants.
    It’s all so vile and disgusting. There was a time when social pathologies where frowned upon, people were marginalized if they were openly racist, sexist but not anymore. That’s why I loathe Palin because she invites the ignorant and malicious to have a platform. No one is even ashamed anymore.
    The sad thing is unless you’re a person existing on a high plane of consciousness -so many people don’t realize that the “Us v. “Them” mentality is abhorrent, revolting, and quite dangerous. The more you dehumanize the “them” the more people feel entitled to stand up against the “Them”. I think the Gifford tragedy is part and parcel of our vitriolic political rhetoric. We have to be careful to emphasize with the “thems” of the world because today it’s them and tomorrow it be us included in the them.
    The Tea Party and the radical right have become a pack of wild, mad, diseased jackals going after anyone who attempts to have a balanced and cerebral approach.
    I blame McCain for unleashing Plain unto the world. Another Republican trying to look for as someone to give them momentum, McCain thought that he could pick Palin and secure the female vote when it became evident that Obama would likely prevail.
    Rant Over! If you have read all of this, um, I appreciate it. Whew…….

      When I read the update on Gabby’s progress and how she’s struggling to speak, I thought the quitter should have been over in politics and anything else after that Tucson shooting and the hateful atmosphere she helped create and still creates. The fact that the media still pants after her when this is all she offers America is disgusting.

      • 53 hopefruit2
        June 10, 2011 at 9:09 am

        Well, the media and their cronies in the medical industry have succeeded in portraying the Giffords shooter as some random nut job who just happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time. So after selling this lie to the public, they feel free to continue their extremism with the GOP candidates who have ZERO accountability. The next time something like this happens – and unfortunately, I fear it will be within the next 12-18 months as the election season heats up, it will not be so easy to dismiss this as a random nut case.

      Have you seen the article by Frank Schaeffer entitled “SARAH PALIN: PROFESSIONAL (WEALTHY) VICTIM”? It is a scathing critique of the Quitter from Wasilla. John McCain has never paid a price for unleashing this woman on the American public. By appointing Palin as his VP, John McCain put the dumbing down of America on overdrive straight down the rabbit hole.



      Palin was first inflicted on the American public by Senator John McCain, who chose her as his running mate in the 2008 presidential election for only one reason: He needed to shore up flagging support from the Evangelical Republican antiabortion base.

      McCain wanted to prove that he was fully in line with the “social issues” agenda that my late father Dr. C. Everett Koop (who would become Reagan’s surgeon general), and I had helped foist on our country over thirty years before.

      Palin lost the election for McCain but “won” her war for fame and fortune and self-appointed “prophetess” status. She presented herself as called by God and thus cast in the Old Testament mold of Queen Esther, one chosen by God to save her people.

      Palin perfected the “art” of Evangelical self-banishment and then took victimhood to new levels of success by cashing in on white lower-middle-class resentment of America’s elites. She might as well have run under the slogan “I’m as dumb as you are!”
