This is a whuppin’.
Politics in Mexico just became a heck of a lot more interesting than Willard’s Gay Bashing days and Obama’s decision on Gay marriage…
Social networking sites are buzzing with debate over a Mexican congressional candidate who released a campaign poster showing herself topless.
Candidate Natalia Juarez says the poster is intended to fight prejudices.
Twitter user Camila Deborarte tweeted “I’d vote for her.” But Itzel Garcia responded, “What a shame! Even this way, she has to call attention to herself.”
Juarez is running on the ticket of the leftist Democratic Revolution Party. She is shown on the poster along with six other women, all of whom are seen covering their breasts with their left hands. Some are raising their right fists.
Juarez is a 34-year-old philosophy instructor at a local university (more…)
A day after Penn State did the right thing in firing long term Coach and College football Legend Joe Paterno for failing to aggressively come forward with what he knew about sexual molestation of young men by one of his assistants…
One needs to ask if the man who wants to be President of the US shouldn’t be held to the same level of accountability as a College Football Coach?
In the first Vid, Rick Perry melts down with a memory lapse at the debate. After George Bush, I think America has had quite enough of stupid men being President – and as such, Perry is going to get hammered for this a lot more than candidates in previous elections.
The 3rd Person Herman Cain (I always worry about a guy who constantly refers to himself in the third person), despite pictures and testimony to the contrary – doesn’t remember his accusers -
The supporting evidence pic showing the witness at the event in question?
And then there is this -
And then there were the threats -
Well… At least Penn State (sadly – belatedly) did the right thing.
With the amount of fodder being presented on a daily basis by one or more of the Republican Dwarfs…
This could well turn into a regular feature.
Of course, in last night’s “debate” – there was a lot of competition for “Dumbest thing ever said by a Republican candidate”. The competition was close last night between Herman Cain, Rick Santorum, and Michelle Bachmann. I think “Mindblown Mikki” gets the nod…
Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) criticized President Obama’s foreign policy during Tuesday night’s CNN debate, saying, “Now with the president, he put us in Libya. He is now putting us in Africa. We already were stretched too thin, and he put our special operations forces in Africa,” she said.
Libya, it should be noted, is on the African Continent, and as such is in Africa.

Don’t think this is any surprise – Obama would wipe the floor with Rick Perry, and put a serious whuppin’ on any of the Republican candidates…
His pick as the best matchup? Neut Gingrich!
Just a little more than a year from the 2012 election, President Obama’s strapped with a wrecked economy, an uncooperative Congress and plenty of competition from the GOP. But when it comes to good old campaigning, communication expert Peter Meyers says Obama still has the golden touch.
“We can focus on the message all we want, the election doesn’t go to the candidate who’s the smartest or even the most experienced,” said Meyers, who has advised world leaders and politicians on how to use body language to influence their message. “It goes to the best communicator. Right now, in the White House, we’ve got a world class communicator. He is going to have to draw upon all of his skills, but he’d clock Rick Perry in a race.”
Meyers compares Obama to former Presidents Clinton and Reagan as speakers, both of whom won re-election after a stumbling start.
He’s not the only political adviser to suggest Obama’s got it in the bag. Whispers recently reported that Allan Lichtman, the American University professor whose election formula has correctly called every president since Reagan’s 1984 re-election, has Obama taking a second term.
Meyers doesn’t totally discount the other candidates, but doesn’t believe they have what it takes.
He admires Perry’s presidential look, his ability to deliver memorable zingers like “Ponzi scheme” and his clear, simple answers to tough questions. Meyers even finds his deep voice appealing. Yet, he admonishes Perry’s fashion sense and lack of poise when forced to speak off the cuff.
“He meanders mid-sentence and loses his way when someone kicks him off his talking points,” Meyers says. “His collars are way to high on his neck; he looks like Catholic school boy, whose mother dressed him for church.”

Mitt Romney doesn’t fare much better. “He can obviously stay on point and hold his own with Rick Perry, but his voice gets stuck in his throat instead of coming from his chest, and he tends to sound like a 1970s game show host; it’s inauthentic,” says Meyers.
Meyers also points to Romney’s stammer and rushed cadence as evidence of why he’d likely get trampled in a race against Obama. “He’s a fair fighter, and he is polished, but he’s almost like a community theater actor. When he makes a good point, you can see in his face that he’s very pleased with himself.”
Who does Meyers thinks might be able to knock Obama from his oratory pedestal?
“Newt Gingrich comes across as the best communicator the Republicans have got,” he says, “It’s a shame he doesn’t get mentioned more. When Gingrich speaks you can hear the tone of both his intellect and his heart; it’s like listening to a sleigh ride — very pleasant.”

If I was President Obama, right about now I’d be licking my chops in anticipation of a debate with any of the 9 Republican midgets. The only way any of these guys could surive a serious debate with anyone with critical thinking skills over room temperature is th have the debate on Faux News with the opponents mike turned off.
Best (worst) of the night?
The Perry Whopper about how “dangerous” El Paso is because of it’s proximity to the border…
Problem – El Paso is ranked nationally as one of the 4 safest big cities in the United States.
You go a few miles across the border into El Paso’s sister city in Mexico, Juarez – different story. But this clown is supposed to be the Governor of Texas?
Next – When did dead people get to join the debate?
I mean – Neut’s campaign has been DOA for 3 months now – WTF is he still doing there?
They tried their best to raise Reagan – but apparently even Republican spin-doctors and necromancers aren’t up to that task. Much as I disliked the Raygun – there wern’t any Reagan’s on that stage other than perhaps Huntsman.
Cain’s still there because they need a signifying Lawn Ornament Kneegrow – but nobody considers his buckdance a real candidacy. Noticed on the MSNBC interview after the debate, Herman is scared shitless of Al Sharpton.
On the soon to be politically dead list – Michelle Bachmann
Doin’ the “Neut”tron Dance… Indeed. Perry done stole her thunder.
Watching Perry lose Florida…
A large retired population, indeed – who don’t want their Social Security checks to disappear. Ponzi-Perry your dumb ass just lost near 25% of the votes you need to win the electoral college.
Uhhhhhhh… Van – Been meaning to talk to you about that “timing” thing…
You are about a year late on this one.
Glenn Beck has already self-destructed.
What exactly do you hope to gain by debating a corpse?
After challenging Glenn Beck to a debate over the weekend at Netroots Nation and in a MoveOn.org-sponsored ad Monday, Van Jones may have taken his beef with Beck a step further.
Jones, a senior fellow at the Center for American Progress who resigned from his job as White House “green jobs” czar following the conservative host’s repeated claims that he was a subversive and a Communist, is considering legal action against Beck-employer Fox News.
Jones’ attorney sent a cease and desist letter Monday to Dianne Brandi, the network’s executive vice president for legal & business affairs, claiming that “a series of sensational and inflammatory charges” have been made against Jones on Fox News shows. The statements, his attorney Joseph Sandler argues, are “demonstrably, unequivocally and absolutely false.”
In a six-page letter, the letter says that Jones has been called “radical revolutionary” (Beck), “an avowed Communist and 9/11 truther” (Sean Hannity), and a “far left kook, Communist guy” (Bill O’Reilly), to name just a few of the disputed allegations.
“Mr. Jones is not a member of any Communist Party or Marxist organization whatsoever, and has not expressed any support for any form of Communist or Marxist ideology for many years,” Sandler wrote. He added that such statements are “demonstrably and unequivocally false” and were made to “injure Mr. Jones in his professional and community standing.”
“They are actionable as a matter of law,” Sandler writes. (more)
Rep Karen Bass (D-CA) Takes Republican Alan West to School! This is the difference between a person who is prepared for their job (Bass), and a Jockey Suited Pretender (West).
Turns out Mr. West is real good at mouthing soundbytes…but isn’t so good when someone calls him on his BS.
If you’ve never heard of Karen Bass – Here she is as a John F. Kennedy “Profile in Courage” Award winner.

This one is reminiscent of the infamous Hatfield and McCoys feud that roiled the Kentucky-West Virginia border years ago. Not sure why Jack Conway went there, to hammer Rand Paul on what was in all likelihood a stupid drunken college prank – but the “Aqua Buddha Man” Rand Paul certainly hasn’t done himself any favors in disposing of this one. Paul is a particularly nasty piece of work, who is a fake doctor, and a racist who tries and cover his tracks with Libertarian “principles”. One hopes the good folks of Kentucky have better morals than to send a piece of shit like this to the Senate.

Screaming high level debate now about the right of a Muslim group to build a Mosque near Ground Zero in NYC. President Obama stepped in it Friday, with support for the Mosque being built – which has had every Republican and bigot (but I repeat myself) in the United States bouncing off the walls. In usual form, President Obama has failed to stand up, and clearly and unequivocally justify his support for allowing the Mosque to be built on American Principle.
Representative Keith Ellison (D), in a debate with Peter King of NY (R) lays out exactly why those who oppose the Mosque are contrary to our tradition and core American values of Religious Freedom, the words and beliefs of the Founding Fathers, and out Constitution.
Can we finally get some backbone here, President Obama?
In an America, where minority infant mortality rates are worse than in some third world countries. and 2.5 times or worse than whites – is it any wonder may of the same people who oppose restructuring American Health Care to meet the standards enjoyed by folks in other first world nations are racially motivated?
I mean – after all, the American Health Care system has performed as a cooperating arm of the Genocide of black and brown folks in this country since slavery, right on through medical experimentation like the Tuskegee syphilis experiment, involuntary sterilization of minority women…
And today where drugs are often human tested in third world countries, and there are huge differentials in the quality of care recieved by people of color…
So is it any surprise a Florida Doctor, opposing Health Care reform would come up with the following racist image ?
Rachel Maddow, who is fast becoming my favorite TV personality takes the intersection between opposition to Health Care Reform, and racism…
So… When these folks are shouting “Socialism” and their opposition to “ObamaCare”, their opposition isn’t really about as much about money – as their”God given right” to continue to murder black and brown babies… (more…)
