More Hand Sitting

Rather than do the jobs they were elected to do, this best describes the goal of the right-wing in Congress for the next few years:
They've been doing that already, the minute Barack Obama walked into the White House as President. The republican members of Congress have accomplished absolutely nothing since 2008, so why should the next two years be any different?

However, they do like to spread lies and innuendo, sit on their hands when it comes time to help the American people, and generally disdain those who voted them into office.

Why formulate good policy when they can lull their constituents into voting for them, therefore allowing non-action and the collection of huge paychecks/pensions/health benefits from the taxpayers?

More Right-Wing Kaflooey

What kind of reality are these nut jobs living in?
If possible, the right-wing just keeps getting freakier.

Last Linkage

I really hate the new layout at the MSNBC web site. It's not exactly new – perhaps a month or two old – but the more I use it to read or to reference a political article, the more I dislike it.

The pages are slower to load, probably due to increased graphic advertisements. In the past, MSNBC displayed articles on one page with reference links to additional and related information. Now articles are displayed in portions if they are a tad overlong, with the option of "show more text." Frankly, showing more text just provides MSNBC with the opportunity to force in videos and yet more advertisements.

Since I don't particularly care about the happenings in my local area, I'll continue to get my news from MSNBC-TV because I find them to be a highly credible source (as opposed to the blatant deceit perpetuated by Fixed News).

However, I'm through perusing and linking to the MSNBC web site articles.

Manic Diatribe

See Republican rants up close and personal:
Per the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee (DSCC): "We're sure you've heard about all the extremist Senate candidates the Republicans are running this year. In case you've missed a few, we here at the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee - the branch of the Democratic Party dedicated to electing Democrats to the Senate - would like to provide you with an introduction. Read their quotes, and then pass them along to your family and friends. We simply can't let these people gain power."

I wholeheartedly agree.

And another goody:
Per J.B. Poersch, Executive Director of the DSCC: "Republicans are running to take our country back. This argument infuriates me. It's as much our country as it is the Republicans'. It's not theirs to take back."
