Friday morning quick hits
It doesn't matter because it isn't veto-proof, Nancy Sweet Jesus, Nancy Pelosi annoys the holy fuck out of me. Over at The Gavel they have a post crowing about the House passing the Paycheck Fairness Act, claiming that the House lets American women know our work is valued. What the fuck ever. Der Shrubbenfuhrer has promised a veto and Mitch McConnell and his gang of obstructionist assholes in the Senate won't let it go anywhere anyway, so what the fuck? It's like declaring victory because you won the coin toss at the start of the game.
It isn't just AT&T that is spying on you Slowly but certainly, the intelligence gathering apparatus of the U.S. government is being turned on the citizens the agencies are supposed to protect. That is the warning coming from the ACLU after the administration updated Executive Order 12333. Sounds par for the course for these assholes, and something else to throw on the pile for Obama to roll back come January.
The doe-eyed sycophants in the press call it a "paper gap" but we just call it what it is...a total lack of ideas or plans. The McCain campaign is not producing white papers and policy proposals, instead opting for nebulous terms and vague assurances that amount to "trust me, I was a POW" and because there is a Media Mancrush™ he isn't being called on it.
Apparently, the Wall Street Journal has merged with The Onion Today they have a 1400 word(!!!) feature article querrying the deep and searching question...is Obama too fit to be president?
