It's Women's Equality (Suffrage) Day

Rand Paul does the Militarized White Privilege bucket challenge (VIDEO)

A Rand Paul nomination could be a diaper changer

There will be lots of whining and crying but there will still be a spanking* just like in the last two elections.



*this in no way condones or suggests the use of corporal punishments. Please see the American Academy of Pediatricians advisements.

Love this site.

Dear NRA, Would Officer Wilson fit in the "good guy with a gun" category?

Or does the other guy have to have a gun?
What if the other guy was, literally, just walking down the street?

Hadn't heard from you in a while and wanted to check your background on this.

Sincerely,
The rest of us

A Friday DU appreciation thread .... for DU

Having been a DU member for quite some time I have found DU to be such a fantastic source for facts and BS detection on specific issues and news items. The two that come immediately to mind were the run up to the war on Iraq and Terry Schiavo (the story that never was according to the media as soon as it went up in smoke on them) where DU members provided background, research, and critical thinking that supplied us with what would soon become the final news in the face of a landslide lies. The right wing hoaxes of the Obama administration do not yet all have a finished scripts but I think we already have the information that will make up those stories.

The last two weeks following the murder of Michael Brown is another great example of what DU delivers.


Thank you DU and all DU members.

McDonnell trial - "chaos", Romney, -- no longer living with his wife

RICHMOND - Bob McDonnell essentially put his marriage on hold while he was in the governor's office, finding himself unable to deal with the first lady's demands as the private side of her office descended into chaos, the former governor testified this morning.

The time pressures of running for governor, then being governor, along with extra duties McDonnell took on as the head of the Republican Governors Associations and one of Mitt Romney's early presidential supporters, took precedent over his personal life in late 2011 and early 2012, he testified. Most of the conversations he had with his wife at this time were simply about logistics, he said.

According to NBC's Rachel DePompa, McDonnell testified that he is no longer living with his wife and has instead been staying with his pastor.

The Ferguson PD's standard footwear must be clown shoe loafers

because I haven't seen one of them yet who looks like they could handle tying a shoelace on a daily basis, let alone two.

Been Dover'ed ... and back

The "Dover Rule" is an offshoot of the Dover Test (see below) for TV - showing the President juxtaposed with military transports flying into Dover AFB with casualties.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dover_test

A rough history:

George HW Bush is showed by CNN (the only news network at the time) laughing it up in the Press Room while a plane lands at Dover with casualties from the first Gulf War.
--OH THE OUTRAGE from the rightwing punditry "Disrespectful....war hero President...paid the ultimate sacrifice" and so on.
CNN agrees not to do that again.

Clinton
Since the Dover Rule is in effect there is no footage of the casualties from Mogadishu ("Black Hawk Down")
--OH THE OUTRAGE from the rightwing punditry "Disrespectful....draft dodging President...paid the ultimate sacrifice" and so on.
Dover Rule is reversed by the Clinton White House

W
Dover Rule goes back into effect, I think, before the wars start.
Military contractor loses her job for sending pictures of flag draped coffins in transport planes from Kuwait
"...now watch my drive"
"Mission Accomplished"
2004 RNC Convention held in NYC - dancing on the graves of 9/11 victims.
No outrage. "With us or against us.... can't let the terr'ists win" and so on.

Obama
Picture of him smiling after making a statement on the brutal murder of an American journalist juxtaposed on the NY Daily News with the journalist's parents grieving
--OH THE OUTRAGE from the rightwing and mainstream punditry "Disrespectful....out of touch...disengaged" and so on.

Give me a f'ing break. It doesn't matter if he had spent the day in a dark room - for that they would be saying his is "overburdened" or some other BS - there HAS to be a negative, some useless controversy and drama.


ON EDIT - Obama is even being criticized for trying to save the journalist and others, or at least for letting anyone know about it. He is "disengaged" and "plays too much golf" you know.
