Internecine weasel fight
Wingnuts • Views: 22,535

It’s the new Tea Party hotness versus stale old Karl “Turd Blossom” Rove, in a cage match to the finish! The challenge to Rove’s supremacy is led by talk radio raver Steve Deace and Breitbart attack weasel Ben Shapiro!

I can only cheer them all on. Who could possibly take sides? May the best loon win.

I, sincerely and truly, would like a sane and rational second party, because there is a lot to be said for multiple viewpoints producing a compromise solution.

Sadly, I doubt that will be the outcome of this. That will not stop me from getting the popcorn though.

If you don’t want to vote Democratic, fine. Vote 3rd party, or don’t vote at all. Just stop throwing your lot in with these nutcases. You’re hurting everyone.

Deace: “There is now an out-in-the-open civil war within the Republican Party, and most of the grassroots patriots I talk to are just fine with that. The GOP establishment is so hated by its own base that increasingly more and more of its grassroots have decided they might be better off with Democrats in charge rather than Rove’s kind of milquetoast, John Boehner-type of Republican.”

Joe Walsh: ‘If Rove Wants A Fight For The Soul Of The Republican Party, Bring It On’

Former Rep. Joe Walsh (R-IL) on Wednesday told TPM he is still talking to people and figuring out the necessary steps to create a super PAC to counter Karl Rove’s new group, the Conservative Victory Project. Rove’s super PAC aims to back disciplined candidates who can help Republicans win back a majority in the Senate, and to avoid nominating candidates like Richard Mourdock and Todd Akin, who got into hot water over comments about rape.

Walsh announced his plans to start a super PAC on Twitter Tuesday. In an email Wednesday, Walsh told TPM, “If Rove wants a fight for the soul of the Republican Party, bring it on.”

End homophobia in professional sports

There are many reasons why no gay athlete has come out in the NFL, NBA, NHL or MLB, most of which are likely to go away with support and acceptance from the straight community. As leaders and even role models for millions of young people across the globe, professional athletes have the ability to fundamentally eliminate prejudice from our sport and live up to the incredible privilege we enjoy.

Idaho lawmaker’s bill forces students to pass ‘Atlas Shrugged’ test to graduate

The chairman of the Idaho Senate’s Education Committee says that he introduced a bill to require all students to read Ayn Rand’s “Atlas Shrugged” because the book “made my son a Republican.”

State Sen. John Goedde (R) introduced the bill in committee on Tuesday to mandate that each student pass a test on the novel before they are able to graduate from high school, according to The Spokesman-Review.

But Goedde said that he filed the bill to make a point and does not plan on pushing the issue.

“It was a shot over their bow just to let them know that there’s another way to adopt high school graduation requirements,” Goedde said during the committee meeting. “I don’t intend to schedule a hearing on it.”

GENITAL PUNCH!

Well, looks like winter’s going to be making a comeback in the NYC metro area. Substantial snow in NYC metro (particularly N/W and then again up into New England). Courtesy of the NWS for NYC metro suburbs:

Eastern Passaic-western Bergen-Eastern Bergen-Western Essex-Southern Westchester-
401 pm est Wed Feb 6 2013

…winter storm watch in effect from Friday afternoon through
Saturday afternoon…

The national weather service in Upton has issued a winter storm watch…which is in effect from Friday afternoon through Saturday afternoon.

* locations…northeastern New Jersey and Southern Westchester.

* hazard types…heavy snow…sleet…and freezing rain.

* accumulations…snow accumulation of 6 to 12 inches…along
with up to a quarter of an inch of ice.

NYC should expect 6-10 inches. Which is about what we should be getting this time of year. Several times in fact. NYC metro has seen lower than normal precipitation, so this snow is needed (if not wanted by localities that were hoping to save some money by not dipping into their snow clearance budgets after getting whacked with Sandy costs).

This is one aspect of the modern GOP that I just cannot get over: they are heavily into political posturing, into bringing up legislation that cannot possibly get passed just to prove a point, like repeated attempts to repeal Obamacare, and as Karl Rove has pointed out, has now come down to fielding candidates who cannot get elected just to prove a political point

Philly has a deflector shield or something for weather coming from the west or southwest. You can watch on radar while the precipitation rolls up and then either evaporates or splits around it north and south while still 20 miles or so to the west. And that’s after the outer defenses (Blue Mountain) shove everything to the northeast to hit Scranton.

The nor’easters of course come in from the flank. Though this year they seem to be hitting land further north in order to make Lawhawk’s day.

Dobson Falsely Claims It Is Now Illegal for Doctors to Provide Stents to Anyone over the Age of 70

If Congress had recently passed, and President Obama signed, legislation making it illegal for anyone over the age of 70 to receive a stent for treatment of heart blockages, you would think that is the sort of thing that might have made news and people would have heard something about it.

If such a law had been passed, you would think we’d be able to find at least one news story about is somewhere and it wouldn’t be the sort of thing we’d have to learn third-hand from someone like James Dobson, who claims to have heard this unconfirmed report from some unnamed physician, right?

The conversation:

“I was checking out AKs at the gun store. Man, they’re expensive.”
“Its a seller’s market. What are you worried about a marauding horde of bandits suddenly showing up at your apartment? Wouldn’t a shotgun be more effective?”
“Second Amendment dude.”
“Tell me about the well regulated part again.”
“Second Amendment, private citizens owning guns stop tyranny. Look at the Minutemen.”
“You mean those guys who never won an actual battle on their own?”
“Go away.”

Hahaha. It is funny how they ignore the “well regulated” part.

Yeesh. Nothing but slush for Philly/South Jersey. Trenton must have some sort of weather disrupter.

Long Island is supposed to get mostly rain, maybe 1-3 inches of snow tops. But of course, I’ve got my Friday gig in NYC, so I’ll probably end up driving through some of that big snow if it gets into the city.

Dobson Falsely Claims It Is Now Illegal for Doctors to Provide Stents to Anyone over the Age of 70

Stents don’t even show a mortality benefit vs. more conservative (i.e. cheaper) therapies on most patient groups. So even if this story were true, it wouldn’t mean “letting them die.”

OFFS. My dad just had a quadruple bypass. Before the decision was made to do that, he was scheduled to have TWO stents put into his arteries. He just turned 74. The doctor saw the blockages were more severe than he thought and so they stopped the angioplasty and rescheduled him for the bypass.

WTF is wrong with these idiots?

I’m downloading the Big Mozart Box for $0.99!

LOL! I haven’t tried that one, but I downloaded the “Darkest Music” collection for 99 cents, and it’s like everything ever done by any East European orchestra. I didn’t know that one could get 30 gigabytes of miscellaneous music for 99 cents, but hey, who’s complaining?

Healing Is the Message at Interfaith Service for Victims of Sunday’s Shootings
Clergy of different faiths, joined by U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder, delivered messages of hope and unity Thursday before more than 1,300 people gathered at the Jewish Community Center in Overland Park. "A pall has been cast over our great nation," Holder said. "We gather today not in joy, but in solemn reflection." The overall message, however, was focused on the power of ...

More Than Half the Women in These Countries Are Married by the Time They Turn 18
The report is as sad as it is horrifying. A child bride forced into marriage in Nigeria has been accused of killing her much older groom and three of his friends by poisoning their meals with rat poison. The 14-year-old girl, Wasila Umaru, was married to the 35-year-old man last week. Although she told authorities she was forced into the betrothal, Wasila will ...

Criminalizing Expectant Mothers - NYT
Even by the standards of the growing Republican assault on the lives and rights of women, a new bill passed by bipartisan majorities in both houses of Tennessee's Legislature recently stands out for being meanspirited and counterproductive. If signed by the state's Republican governor, Bill Haslam, the legislation would give Tennessee the dubious distinction of being the first state to specifically authorize the ...

Calgary stabbings: How knife crime in Canada can cause ‘moral panic’
What Calgary police chief Rick Hanson called the "worst mass murder" in the city's history didn't end at the barrel of a gun. Instead, the 22-year-old suspect identified on Tuesday as Matthew de Grood is accused of entering the kitchen at a house party, taking "a large knife" and using it to fatally stab four men and one woman, all of whom were students ...

Back Story of Yasiel Puig’s Journey to America Should Concern Dodgers
Seemingly from the moment Cuban refugee Yasiel Puig showed up at Dodger Stadium out of nowhere, arriving last June unwilling to discuss his unknown background, the talk behind the batting cages has been rife with unprintable rumors. There were rumors Puig was smuggled out of Cuba by members of a Mexican drug cartel. There were rumors he still owed the smugglers money, and ...

New York Electoral College: State Joins National Popular Vote Interstate Compact.
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 -- ...

Kid's heads are filled with so many nonfacts that when they get out of school they're totally unprepared to do anything. They can't read, they can't write, they can't think. Talk about child abuse.
