On the other hand, it's pretty impressive that they got an albatross to say human words. Or maybe she's more of a millstone.

Well a Babylon girl ain't got no past
The Babylon girl got's to talk so fast

I am glad she wasn't around back when Hitler was alive because Hitler being man of the year would go totally over her shallow brain. Even if you don't like Obama, Time made a decent argument for him being Man of the Year. So glad that we only have to deal with this woman's stupidity on cable news rather than being a heartbeat from the WH. We dodged a bullet in 2008 people. A big one.

Well, isn't that something. After Boehner said he was going to put Plan B to a vote, he had to have a change of plans. Guess his caucus didn't exactly warm up to the plan after all. Not enough support in fact.

Boehner's Plan B fiscal cliff bill pulled amid dissension in GOP caucus

How long until we get Speaker Cantor? Boehner obviously can't control his caucus.

23 freetoken  Thu, Dec 20, 2012 5:52:21pm

On a different but not wholly unrelated topic, and getting back to one of my subjects from earlier in the year, this month Newsweek, in its fading glory, published a cover article by Bart Ehrman on why the infancy birth narratives of Jesus in the Gospels are not history and not to be taken as true.

As expected, it raised the ire of fundamentalists and evangelicals, who have put out numerous writings and videos denouncing Ehrman yet again. The objectors cite a long list of supposed proofs - all of which have been thoroughly dismissed over many years by many scholars and researchers.

Anyway, point being, is that our society is composed of, in no small part, of a large group of people who are not willing to open engage in discussing the foundations of their worldviews - how they make sense of the world around them.

And the concept of "evidence" is twisted until non-existence is proof of some thing being true.

So, it doesn't surprise me that this same society of ours has broken down in the public, political dialogue, between those who embrace the modern view of evidence, data, and knowledge, and those who cling to beliefs created explicitly to comfort them but full of pitfalls that accompany hiding one's head.

Boehner screwed the pooch.

Boehner just ended his Speakership. The final vote's not til Jan 3rd, but after tonight, I don't think anybody realistically thinks he's a lock to keep his job. Seriously, if he couldn't get a vote on this bill, even with the blessing of Norquist, how does he expect to get anything Obama would agree to passed?

The biggest egg on Boehner's face? Here's what he was saying 7 hours ago:

Boehner: Obama Can’t Stand Up To His Own Party

House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) said on Thursday that the reason so-called fiscal cliff negotiations have stalled is that President Obama is having some trouble standing up to his own party on entitlement cuts.

"I'm convinced the president is unwilling to stand up to his own party," Boehner said at a press conference on Capitol Hill.

They seem to think the American people actually like this crap. Would love for the American people in the midterms to return them to their minority party status in the House but given how incumbency is, I wouldn't bet on it even if it looks like it will be a Democratic year. We really fucked up giving them the House in 2010.

The real pain in 2010 was at the state level, where the GOP made serious gains in state houses. 2010 being a census year, they were able to lock in much of the gains via redistricting.

re: #32 HappyWarrior

Not really their concern. To many of those Republican congressmen, their constituency are behind them solidly. Note that the reelection of Obama brought only small changes to the House, partly through redistricting, but also because the hardest hard core of the tea partying right show up to vote, while the young trendy types that love Obama will skip voting in mid terms.

I don't look forward to the 2014 elections.

Oh boy. Just got a call from my Dad who keeps falling for the Faux News crap. He's all full of whatever they are saying today. I snapped and cussed him out for trying to lecture me again with a pack of lies.

Almost instantly I reminded myself of who I was talking to, apologized profusely. Three times. On the up side we made arrangements for Christmas dinner with a promise of no politics.

A few times I have printed out charts and graphs and Pages to show him how empty of real content his favorite news source is. Then he watches the news again for a week or so and it's on again.

Well this time dinner at a steak joint will be on me.

But I still feel like a heel. Coming from Dad it just kills me.

Yep. Really if I have a beef with the Democratic base, it's that they don't turn out as much in non presidential election years. The off year elections and midterms are just as important for the country.

According to Josephus, Herod did seek out and destroy any descendants of the Hashmonean priestly dynasty who would have been rivals to his throne. So that would have been historically correct. However Herod would not have been interested in the peasant class unless he thought they were fomenting a rebellion. Matthew co-opted Herod's destruction of the priestly caste who were his rivals, with a generic massacre that fit his own narrative.

re: #71 Vicious Michigan Union Thug

One perspective on the origins of the Gospels, I think serious enough to hold up, is that the "Gospel of Matthew" (which no where claims to be written by a "Matthew") was cobbled together (at the end of the 1st century) from the earlier "Mark" or "Q" with the express intention of writing in more Jewish references, including writing Herod into the story to make it more "Jewish".

75 Targetpractice  Thu, Dec 20, 2012 6:28:11pm

After GOPers in Congress were saying that they weren't going to fund the President's $60b Sandy recovery plan, and came up with a plan that provided just $20b, Gov. Christie just came out and said that he's calling on Congress to pass the full $60b plan because recovery wont come without it.

I was a registered Republican for 25 years, until 2009, and I hope they heal themselves, soon. But at some point, Republicans must confront the fact, unfortunate fact as it is, that they nominated Sarah Palin for Vice President of the United States. It won't be pretty. We all make big mistakes. (I made a very major mistake in my own life a few weeks ago, and I feel terrible about it.) But as unpleasant as it will be, Republicans simply must deal with this. Palin's mental illness has been all over TV, all over the world, for a long time now. Too long! Republicans cannot heal their party without CONFRONTING their great mistake of 2008.

COPENHAGAN, Denmark -- Michael Nielsen unlocks the door to his pig factory. He doffs his jacket, pants and muddy boots and zips on white coveralls.

When Con­ser­v­a­tives un­der Stephen Harper took of­fice in 2006, I was dis­ap­pointed at how much they re­sem­bled their pre­de­ces­sors when it came to their pen­chant for in­creas­ing the size of gov­ern­ment.

What caused the disaster? We ...

Because if I've learned anything over the past few days, it's that watching someone you care for go through something like this can make you feel unbelievably helpless.

Ben Mathis-Lilley, Slate: New York Electoral College: State Joins National Popular Vote Interstate Compact. Instead of pushing for a Constitutional amendment, which would have to be ratified in 38 states, advocates ask individual state legislatures to pass an agreement: that they'll pledge all their presidential electors to the winner of the national popular vote as soon as enough other states pass the law to ...

The Insane History of Rockets at Jet Propulsion Laboratories
The Rocket Boys In the late 1930s, a group of Caltech graduate students were booted off campus after blowing up (part of!) their building during a rocket test gone awry. Unwilling to give up on the joy of semi-controlled explosions, the students and a few of their friends headed into the San Gabriel Mountains. They picked a deserted gully -- Arroyo Seco -- ...

This had happened during the days of Studio Z in Cucamonga (1963). Frank was released on bail (his father took out a bank loan to pay for it). Frank had been busted for "conspiracy to commit pornography," after making a silly recording of suggestive sexual sounds (giggling edited out) for someone who had asked him to provide a "special" tape recording for a stag night. That someone turned out to be Detective Willis of the San Bernadino Vice Squad. Their conversation was recorded by a hidden microphone and this was used as evidence at Zappa's trial.
