Worst. Advice. Ever.
Mother Jones, by Kevin Drum

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 11/18/2012 2:02:05 PM

Over the past couple of weeks, a lot of people have had a lot of advice for the Republican Party. Compromise more. Compromise less. Appeal to Hispanics. Stick to conservative fundamentals. Nominate better candidates. Improve your ground game. Etc. Some of this advice is good, and some of it is probably not so good. But I´d like to congratulate Charlotte Allen for possibly the worst advice ever offered to a party in defeat. This is truly — um, hold on. Sorry. Revise and extend. What I meant was that this is the best advice ever offered to a party in defeat.

One for the ages directly from the comments of the truly enlightened (and so much smarter thanm us)Mother Jones reader.

"Put it this way, anyone who talks about an ´Obamacare spending blowout" is so obviously ignorant of fiscal reality that anything else they say can be safely disregarded."

Obamacare actually reduces the deficit don´tcha know.

The more I read the more depressed I get. Hopw did America become this stupid? (I know, I know, It was Bush´s fault).

Please don´t miss the link to the LA Times in this short article. That´s where our commentary should center. I liked the article in the link by Charlotte Allen a lot. Sarah has not taken her eye off the prize. In the last two elections (2010 and 2012), she has shrewdly supported conservative candidates and built up her base and credibility as well as racking up a bunch of IOUs from the newbies.

I´d laugh myself into a coma if Sarah started running early next year,going around fundraising.She could demagogue everything Obama is doing in the process.

Of course you´d have to hide the sharp objects from the GOP establishment.

They are SO educated and wise. I grovel at the feet of my smirking dope smoking betters.

Why does Sarah scare everyone so much? Both the left and the right have used every rotten trick in the book to destroy her, and even in humiliating defeat for the R´s, they continue. Why is that? What power does she wield that causes both sides to quake in their boots and need a change of pants?
The future may tell, and I hope we last long enough to see it.

William Saletan has a compelling piece in Slate today: More than 35,000 people gave money to the campaign for Proposition 8, the 2008 ballot measure that declared, “Only marriage between a man and a woman is valid or recognized in California.” You can download the entire list, via the Los Angeles Times, as a compressed spreadsheet..."

Brendan Eich is gone. The creator of JavaScript and co-founder of mozilla.org has quit as Mozilla’s CEO, forced out by the uproar over a donation he made six years ago to a ballot measure against gay marriage. There’s no record of Eich discriminating against gay employees—“I never saw any kind of behavior or attitude from him that was not in line with Mozilla’s values of inclusiveness,” says the company’s chairwoman, Mitchell Baker. In fact, last week, Eich pledged, I am committed to ensuring that Mozilla is, and will remain, a place that includes and supports everyone, regardless of sexual orientation,

Sarah Palin´s Amazing America: a show

I subscribe to the Sportsman Channel because, as an incorrigible Canadian, I wanted the NHL network, although I keep it in part because of NFL RedZone. And so last night I found myself in the sports tier of my cable television package, watching the debut of the network´s newest show, Amazing America with Sarah Palin. Professionally making money from grassroots Republicans inevitably involves trolling liberals, something in which Sarah Palin is an expert, albeit with diminishing returns as her brief period of political relevance recedes. While there´s a certain trolling subtext to her new show, it´s mostly below the surface. I

LOUISVILLE, Ky. - Stepping into an issue on the political fringes, Republican Senate candidate Matt Bevin spoke at a Kentucky rally meant to build support for legal cockfighting, a bloody practice illegal nationwide. The tea party-backed challenger to Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell portrayed the event last Saturday as a states´ rights rally, but his appearance among cockfight backers prompted one animal-rights group to call on Bevin to withdraw from the May 20 GOP primary. The McConnell campaign scoffed at Bevin´s description of the event. "Only Matt Bevin would go to a cockfighting rally and claim he didn´t know what they were doing

   

 



 
Holder Says DOJ Still May Mingle with CAIR in Quest

WASHINGTON — Attorney General Eric Holder told a House Appropriations subcommittee on Friday that his department doesn’t have a “formal relationship” with a controversial Islamic group while a chairman argued that an interpretation of the law has inexplicably tied the Pentagon’s hands in nabbing the Benghazi attackers. At a hearing to review the Justice Department’s FY 2015 budget request, Appropriations Subcommittee on Commerce, Justice, Science, and Related Agencies Chairman Frank Wolf (R-Va.) reminded Holder, the sole witness, that last year the DOJ was “directed to follow the lead of the FBI to keep distance between government officials and individuals or organizations

A senior CIA official has died in an apparent suicide this week from injuries sustained after jumping off a building in northern Virginia, according to sources close to the CIA. CIA spokesman Christopher White confirmed the death and said the incident did not take place at CIA headquarters in McLean, Va. “We can confirm that there was an individual fatally injured at a facility where agency work is done,” White told the Washington Free Beacon. “He was rushed to a local area hospital where he subsequently died.

Fuzzy math from administration

Although the president and his aides trumpeted the ObamaCare enrollment figures as a success, the administration did not always see those numbers as something to brag about. In his Rose Garden appearance this week, Obama seemed elated to proclaim "7.1 million Americans have now signed up for private insurance plans through these marketplaces." But it remains unclear how many of those sign ups have paid premiums in order to be officially enrolled, or how many were previously uninsured. In addition, even though officials are celebrating the 7 million mark,the White House once minimized numbers twice that large-- the 14 million people in the

Tyson is recalling 75,320 pounds of chicken nuggets after some customers complained about finding small pieces of plastic in their food. The recall includes Tyson 5-pound bags of frozen, white meat chicken nuggets that were sold at Sam´s Club stores across the country. Complaints of plastic pieces in the nuggets were received by a "small number of customers," the company said Friday. The problem was traced to a product scraper inside a blending machine, according the U.S. Department of Agriculture. The affected chicken nuggets were produced on two days, Jan. 26 and Feb.16, on a single line at one of the company´s 40

SEATTLE -- The warnings could hardly have been clearer. One technical report told of the "potential for a large catastrophic failure" of the 600-foot hillside above a rural neighborhood near Oso, on the Stillaguamish River. Another noted plainly that it "poses a significant risk to human lives and private property." The danger was so apparent that Snohomish County officials mulled buying out the properties of the residents who lived there. Instead, the county continued to allow the construction of homes nearby. Seven went up even after a significant slide approached the neighborhood in 2006. Whatever the wisdom of its decision,

The irreverent hosts of the Opie & Anthony Show absolutely torched ObamaCare on their SiriusXM Radio program Thursday after both of their healthcare plans were cancelled. After Greg “Opie” Hughes, who has a wife and 2 kids, said that like his co-host Anthony Cumia, he too had lost his plan, it was game on. Opie complained to Anthony that his health plan had finally been “perfect.” Anthony then sarcastically accused Opie of “lying” for saying he liked his plan – a not so subtle swipe at Harry Reid, who claimed last month that all “tall tales” about ObamaCare were “lies.” Their tirade covered

Standing in front a table piled with liquor bottles at a fundraiser in Texas in January, Braley boasted: “If you help me win this race, you may have someone with your background, your experience, your voice -- someone who´s been literally fighting tort reform for 30 years in a visible and public way -- on the Senate Judiciary Committee.” He didn´t stop there.

The State Department has no idea what happened to $6 billion used to pay its contractors. In a special “management alert” made public Thursday, the State Department’s Inspector General Steve Linick warned “significant financial risk and a lack of internal control at the department has led to billions of unaccounted dollars over the last six years. The alert was just the latest example of the federal government’s continued struggle with oversight over its outside contractors. The lack of oversight “exposes the department to significant financial risk,” the auditor said. “It creates conditions conducive to fraud, as corrupt individuals may attempt

In his opening statement during highly anticipated testimony Wednesday on Benghazi, former CIA deputy director Michael Morell claimed to be an intelligence professional who was willing to lay out the facts -- no matter how damaging. "I take very seriously the allegations about how the CIA in general and about how I in particular handled the analysis and the talking points," Morell told the House Intelligence Committee, in his first public testimony on the Benghazi attacks. "The ethical code under which intelligence officers carry out their responsibilities calls for total objectivity." But Morell´s own testimony would appear to undercut that

Earlier this week on Boston’s WRKO-AM’s The Howie Carr Show, conservative commentator Ann Coulter shocked some conservatives when she said she is making 2012 Republican nominee Mitt Romney her favorite for the 2016 Republican contest. Last month in an interview on CBS’s Face the Nation, Romney himself ruled out the possibility of a 2016 run and said he was instead focused on who to get behind in that contest. Coulter, however, wishes otherwise. “Well, don´t tell him but I´m planning on giving Mitt Romney a little more time to rest -- flying out, kidnapping him and depriving him of sleep, food and

President Barack Obama contended that the government did not “make a hard sell” for Obamacare, despite his administration spending nearly $700 million to promote the law. “We didn’t make a hard sell,” Obama said in the Rose Garden on Tuesday, praising the 7.1 million sign ups for the Affordable Care Act. “We didn’t have billions of dollars of commercials like some critics did.” However, last July the Associated Press reported that Obamacare’s marketing campaign would cost at least $684 million. Taxpayer funding went to all 50 states in efforts to encourage people to enroll, including nearly $28 million for the

Attorney General Eric Holder disputed a Government Accountability Office report on his use of Justice Department airplanes for personal trips, saying it overstated the number of trips he took and failed to recognize that some trips were job-related. "My staff keeps telling me to take it easy, you know, well, this is one that gets me," Holder told Rep. Frank Wolf, R-Va., during a House Appropriations subcommittee hearing.

It´s the end of an era: David Letterman announced Thursday that he´s retiring from CBS´ "Late Show" sometime next year. He made that announcement during the taping of his program this afternoon. The late-night talk show host, who will celebrate his 67th birthday next week, made his debut on the "Late Show" on Aug. 30, 1993. Letterman got his television start in 1978 on the CBS variety series "Mary," starring Mary Tyler Moore.
