Today Al Franken did what every other Democrat in Congress should have done for the last few months. Tell Lieberman to shut up.
As talkingpointsmemo describes “Lieberman was giving a ten-minute speech on health care reform. Franken, who was presiding over the Senate, cut him off when his ten minutes were up. When Lieberman requested unanimous consent for an extra few minutes to finish his speech, Franken, in his capacity as a senator from Minnesota, objected. And, in his capacity as presiding officer, Franken honored the objection.”
“After a brief moment of tension, Lieberman laughed and said he didn’t take it personally, and requested that the rest of his speech be put in the record.”
“Then McCain took the floor to defend his friend, saying he’d never seen anything like it.”
As an update talkingpointsmemo notes ”Franken spokeswoman Jess McIntosh calls to clarify: Leadership today asked all the presiding officers to keep floor speeches — ..continue reading
Every time Dick Armey opens his mouth you get another glimpse of the true Dick Armey. A sleazeball.
He did not disappoint again today. During an American for Prosperity sponsored rally he made the following remark:
“The last time [Coburn] and I were together, I had the amazing opportunity to watch him receive a lecture on health care from a woman named, uh, uh, uh, “Maddox.” A television personality. Who I’m told has a Ph.D. in something that doesn’t matter. Who knew she was qualified to lecture the good physician on health care in America because she had actually gone to a doctor once.“
This pompous asshole was referring to Rachel Maddow form the Rachel Maddow show on MSNBC. As thinkprogress indicates
“Maddow is a Rhodes scholar and an Oxford Ph.D. in political science. Her doctoral thesis was titled, “HIV/AIDS and Health Care Reform in British and American Prisons.”(Armey has ..continue reading
The right wing must be running out of ideas of things to write about Obama’s administration.
What can they say to further hammer Obama?
How about a story of how much worse Obama is than Tiger Woods?
Tiger Woods? Of course. They do have something in common. They are both biracial.
Surprise. Townhall decided to do just that. Kevin McCullough wrote the hit piece. Why? probably because he had nothing else to say.
McCullough’s assertions would be comical if they were not so stupid.
He claims that although Tiger has hurt his family this does not compare to the Obama administration’s attempt to empower itself, create a greater divide between those who are powerful and those who are needy and its attempt to destroy the lives of American families.
The stupidity of this article is hard to describe.
It is hard to believe that the townhall website published this piece of trash. It is a new ..continue reading
Yesterday morning, Karl Rove appeared on NBC and told Matt Lauer that if Obama decides to send 30,000-35,000 more troops to Afghanistan he would be “among the first to stand up and applaud.”
As expected from two-faced Rove he did not stand up and applaud Obama but proceeded to bash him.
thinkprogress reported that after Obama’s speech last night Rove appeared on FOX and had the following exchange with O’Reilly:
O’REILLY: I did not see a Winston Churchill-type performance. … Summing up, the president’s speech tonight was OK but not exactly the Gettysburg Address.
ROVE: I mean, I think he might need a new teleprompter with some Energizer bunny batteries in it. You know, look, at the core of tonight was good news, but it was badly delivered in a — you know, in a weak frame.
ROVE: And the enemy knows that we’re going to send one quarter less troops than was ..continue reading
