    When you’re corrupt and dishonest …. well, you’re corrupt and dishonest!

    “Republicans debuted a new ad Thursday in which a frustrated former Obama supporter expresses her disappointment with the president. The only problem: The woman in the video is actually an RNC staffer.

    The new ad features Republican National Committee Director of Hispanic Outreach Bettina Inclan, who in the ad purports to be an average woman voter who supported Obama in 2008. She describes her disillusionment with the president in the ad as a romantic relationship gone awry.

    Inclan began her current RNC post in January 2012, and has worked in Republican politics since well before Obama’s 2008 election. She did Hispanic outreach for Rick Scott’s 2010 Florida gubernatorial race worked on Capitol Hill for Rep. Lincoln Diaz-Balart (R-FL), Rep. Thaddeus McCotter (R-MI) and as national executive director of the Republican National Hispanic Assembly.”

    I’m baaaaack, just in time to catch tonight’s festivities. Thank you Chips for headlining one of my favorite tunes on the last thread. It brought back memories of my youthful partying days. For PBO’s speech tonight, I’m pulling out the old white thigh high go-go boots, my leather/suede mini skirt with the tassels, and tie-dyed spaghetti strap t-shirt and dance all night. Actually, I passed that torch long ago, but am always up for some reminiscing.

    what slug chuck todd is! on twitter 2 hours ago he’s trying to stir up sheet with his smarmy little comment about “blue skies,” and the very next one an hour later is talking about the downpour happening right now. why do these people get these jobs in the first place, let alone keep them even after so much fail:

    … So we’re exhausted, hot, and sweaty. But not too tired to flirt with the handsome and friendly police officers and secret service agents stationed along various openings in the fence. They direct us along the route to the Epicenter ‘where the folks are’. 🙂

    it could not have happened to a better guy.

    On Assange and on CNN, Glenn Greenwald is talking out of his hat and is an embarrassment to The Guardian

    You may not be familiar with the work of Glenn Greenwald. He’s an American journalist, recently hired by the Guardian as a heavy hitter to write on liberty and security. However, since arriving, he’s caused nothing but red faces at King’s Place. He hasn’t had a good start, being knocked pillar to post by British journalists for making basic factual and sourcing errors.

      Oh dear, Glen G probably forgot he wasn’t writing for US MSM where basic facts and sourcing don’t matter. May he learn something lasting about journalism before he is fired.

    “As sure as I’m standing here, I think Todd Akin is going to stay in the race in Missouri, and I think the ‘superPAC’ groups are going to come in and fund him,” Carnahan warned Missouri delegates as they gathered over breakfast in downtown Charlotte. “Sen. McCaskill is still going to have a tough race.”

    Bush II shouldn’t even be on that poster. He didn’t create any jobs at all during his 8 years. Or maybe I’m reading the chart in this article incorrectly.

    Excellent chart! All the GOP presidents were bad, but Bush the Lesser really threw the curve off!
