The Devil Made Him Do It

It was different 50 years ago. People were in a panic about JFK -- the first catholic president -- inflicting his church's views into politics.

Now it's the essence of Pope Santorum's campaign.

Lucifer / Satan / The Devil and his Red Pitchfork apparently are attacking the country! The US needs an exorcism! Call for The Pennsylvania Pope to rescue us, and declare War on Hell! Where's Linda Blair and the pea soup when you need them?

His church doesn't like birth control -- this is not abortion we're talking about folks, it's just birth control! -- and so insurance companies must not offer these types of women's health services to people who work for catholic schools and hospitals, even though thousands of them ARE NOT EVEN CATHOLIC. Doesn't matter. Little Ricky Santorum has decided NO BIRTH CONTROL FOR YOU! Kinda like the Soup Nazi, but for family planning.

Interesting that in all the polls I've seen, the most important issues in the eyes of voters are jobs and the economy. Not even 1% say The Devil or birth control are the most pressing issues of the day.

But don't let that stop Mr "Something's Burning Down There" Santorum.

5 More of Rupert's Scandal-Plagued Employees Arrested

Phone tapping and bribery scandals continue to be prosecuted at Rupert Murdock's News Corp property The Sun. The scandal has already shut down one of his tabloid papers, involved his satellite "news" service in Europe and is being investigated here in the US where he owns Fox News.

The basic cable channel that employs Sean Hannity and Bill O'Reilly is owned by this billionaire Australian; its second largest financier is a Saudi prince, and the parent company has been under investigation for over a year in this phone-tapping, police-bribing scandal.

Liberal Bumper Stickers

Thanks to Jim for sending these!

A guy walks into a bar...

As heard on the Stephanie Miller Show:

A Liberal, a moderate and a conservative walk into a bar.

The bartender says, "Hi Mitt."

Job GROWTH During the Obama Administration

Clear evidence of the undeniable success of President Obama's policies on job creation.

The US lost more and more jobs every month during Cheney and Bush's last year. The country was hemorrhaging over 750,000 jobs a month when President Obama was sworn in. Fewer and fewer jobs were lost all through his first year until we began 23 continuous months of positive job growth.

The Regressive republicans' front runner, Willard Romney loves to repeat at every campaign stop that "President Obama didn't cause the recession; he just made it worse." Now you can clearly see that's a lie.

Share this blog post with all your Regressive republican family members and co-workers who believe the constantly repeated lies they hear from Willard, the Regressives in Congress, and the teleprompter-readers on Fox.

Concrete and Clay

This has nothing to do with politics. It's one of my favorite songs from 1965 (although the Eddie Rambeau version was better). Unfortunately nobody ever plays it anymore. Somebody added some completely unrelated, but very funny, video from The Honeymooners.  It all just works and will have you laughing.

Lawrence O'Donnell Takes Back the Word Liberal

Income Disparity Chart

The chart says it all. The top 1% saw exponential economic gains over the last 30 years. Everybody else's income remained relatively flat.
