that rape thing? IT'S STILL NONE OF YOUR BUSINESS

WHAT THAT WOMAN ****CHOOSES**** TO DO WITH HER BODY!!! Jesus jumped up Christ on a stick!! Why can't you all understand that?

To condone forcing a woman to bear her rapist's child is the same as condoning the rape. You cannot separate the two. If God intended on the pregnancy to happen, then he intended upon the rape happening because that is the means by which the conception occurred. So you can't parse your way out of that (like that idiot from Politico was allowed to get away with saying on c-span's washington journal this morning without being challenged on it).

At the end of the day, this moron and others like him are condoning the rape of women. Period. End of story.

When the Derisho blew through DC back in late June

I was without power for about 5 days. Other areas were down for far longer; some had their power back within hours.

And it got hellishly hot and humid right after that storm--mid 90's kind of hot. It was miserable, to say the least. I had to reach back to channel my great grandmothers and square myself with the truth that if they could stand not having AC and electricity for the whole of their lives, then being of that strong stock meant that I could withstand that inconvenience.

I wasn't expecting the lights to go on the 5th day, but when they did, I could hear a lot of my neighbors scream with delight, along with the whoosh of their AC units starting up. It literally was like stepping from the 19th century back into the 21st century. There is nothing more soul crushing than to spend the day in an air conditioned office, hoping, praying that your electricity would come back on so that the treasury of food in your fridge wouldn't have to be thrown out and that you could at least have some semblance of normalcy, only to put the key in the door and all was still dead quiet.

It lifted my heart on Sunday when I saw a number of utility trucks driving down the street before the Hurricane hit because that meant that they were preparing for this. The Derisho was a totally different kind of event that no one a. had ever seen and b. could plan for, so there's that difference. But knowing how this country performed after Katrina with a republican led government, it was marvelous to see this administration's ability to take a path to see it forthcoming. That is what people need to remember when going to the polls.

And speaking of which, I did my early voting today and I voted for the President and a full Democratic ticket.

Had the camera not been there, would he be apologizing for saying that?

No. What if someone there made it public that he said that, but didn't have a videotape of him? Would he be calling that person a liar and playing the victim role for all it's worth? You damb straight he would be.

Because he thought he was safe when he said it. Had it ever crossed his mind that his kind of thinking would be offensive would mean that he was already capable of understanding what life is like for people who do not live in the same socio-economic class as himself; or people who leave their loved ones to go fight overseas for our country; or seniors who have paid into social security by working their whole damb lives. The fact of the matter is: it has never crossed his mind until his tit was in the wringer.

Those people in that video hold the same viewpoint as he does. None of them flinched or conveyed one iota of rejecting what mittiot was saying. They gave mittiot a safe place to express exactly what mittiot thinks and mittiot took advantage of that environment; he was finally was caught in a moment of candor, revealing who he really is.

"A doubleminded man is unstable in all his ways" and mittiot is a walking, breathing example of that one line in the new testament to be true.

Mittiot fashioned his own noose last night

that's what Obama was letting him do.

Mittiot tacked so far to the middle that he basically said "I'm keeping Obamacare". His surrogates are now going to be tied up unravelling that and dragging mittiot's message back to the right.

Don't fool yourself or be all caught up on the shiny, bright, sparkly stuff here: Obama allowed mittiot to dig the hole he's going to fall into in the next debate. The guy is on the record now with his centrist policies--do you honestly think that once all the sparkle of this night is gone and in the cold, sober morning light he's not going to have to do a huge amount of damage control to keep his lunatic fringe base and their votes in line?

Also, we got a glimpse of the demeanor of the scissor wielding fiend who held down that gay student and cut off his hair in the way in which he disrespected Jim Lehrer--and Lehrer's allowing him to get away with it is a totally other rant. We got to see how he will negotiate with foreign leaders--and he came across as an overly boorish, entitled, selfish, wealthy asshole.

With regard to Obama's demeanor: he flew into Denver at 2p yesterday. Denver has very thin air--it takes some time for the body to acclimate to it. Mittiot had been there the day before, so he had well over 24 hours to acclimate to it. Football teams don't fly in the day of the game and play there. Also, if Obama had come out swinging like everyone wanted him to, all of the talk today would have been about the scary black man beating up on the poor old white guy and no amount of substance in what Obama said would have gotten through that veil of stupidity.

I believe that Obama let mittiot fashion the noose he will put around his own neck with the next two presidential debates.
