Tuesday's quick hits
He wanted us all dead Jim Adkisson, the lunatic who shot up a Unitarian church on Sunday, killing two and wounding six others, was a devotee of right wing squawkers Sean Hannity, Michael Savage and Bill O'Reilly and police found a wide array of right-wing hate-literature in his home when they searched it after he was taken into custody. Knoxville Police Department Officer Steve Still wrote in a document obtained by a local television station that Adkisson targeted the church 'because of its liberal teachings and his belief that all liberals should be killed because they were ruining the country, and that he felt that the Democrats had tied his country's hands in the war on terror and they had ruined every institution in America with the aid of media outlets.'
My, aren't they a clever bunch of scamps? The desperate douchebags over at GOP headquarters were up all night coming up with this idea. They have set up a website called BarackBook that is essentially a phony "facebook" page with all the "usual suspects" that are supposed to be ominously conjured and we are supposed to think of immediately when we hear Obama's name mentioned. It's more funny than cutting, more desperate than clever. But it's all they got.
Yes, I missed the quick hits this morning, I was in the company of medical professionals and those on the way to being medical professionals, but I am pleased to report that I am well on the road to recovery and I should be 100% in another day or two. Thanks for all the white light, I was pretty miserable for a few days there, that's for sure, and I guessed right...I did lose ten pounds - but that can happen when all you eat between lunch on Thursday and Sunday night is a can of Campbell's Chicken Noodle Soup (no crackers).
