Thank You, Bernie Sanders.

While I’m very glad that Bernie has put a hold on this anti-regulation wanker who thought Gramm-Leach-Bliley was a good idea, it’s disappointing that Obama continues to nominate people who were part of the problem.  Kinda hard to believe he has any plans to reform the status quo when he keeps hiring the people who created it.

Oh, and I’m totally looking forward to the part where Harry Reid rides roughshod over Bernie’s hold like he did to Dodd on telecom immunity.

…And There Was Much Rejoicing.

The dream may soon become a reality: Odor-free underwear.

You heard me.

Wednesday Why-I-Love-The-Weekly-World-News-Blogging

The Weekly World News has the latest update on the Bachmannsurrection:

Rep. [Michele] Bachmann made her most alarming statement just a few days ago. When asked on a radio show about President Barack Obama’s cap-and-trade proposal to reduce carbon emissions, Bachmann exclaimed:

I want people in Minnesota armed and dangerous on this issue of the energy tax because we need to fight back. Thomas Jefferson told us “having a revolution every now and then is a good thing,” and the people — we the people — are going to have to fight back hard if we’re not going to lose our country. And I think this has the potential of changing the dynamic of freedom forever in the United States.

Rep. Bachmann has made good on her word and showed up outside the White House this morning, shotgun in hand, ready to start a revolution. To a press conference of three, Bachmann stated, “I have called upon thousands of loyal Americans to march here this morning, with whatever weapons they have on hand: butter knives, slingshots, silly string, water balloons… Anything that’s going to let the Washington Elite know that we are serious!”

By 10am, no other citizens had shown, so Bachmann decided to go it alone. She made it halfway over the gate before getting stuck. Security guards stood by for 15 minutes and watched her struggle before finally helping her down. They quietly confiscated her GI Joe toy rifle and let her go.

Rush Limbaugh pledged that he would help Bachmann dig a tunnel to the White House; however, he pledged this on his nationally syndicated radio show, somewhat ruining the element of surprise.

WOLVERIII- Ow! Ouch! Mommy!

Glennzilla points out that unlike conservatives, progressive bloggers have stayed true to their principles by attacking Obama’s screwups instead of rationalizing them.  Critics, not apologists or sycophants.

I wish we weren’t given so many opportunities, but I’m proud to be on the team that didn’t sell out its core values.
