Same Thing

Ames what?

So the big news over the weekend was the Ames Straw Poll which apparently was the place to be for the conservatives wanting to run our country even farther into the ground. And who was the winner?

Michelle Bachmann. Yup the crazy right winger came away strong taking the stage and the win.

Mother Jones covered her history well in their recent article, a must read if Bachmann seems scarier than any devil you saw in Sunday school.

After reading the article I had to wonder what this devil was up to. So I jumped on over to see how her "truth-o-meter" was looking. Seems that honesty is one of those sins she is still working on...

I have to admit that of all the coverage, verbage and video that I consumed this past weekend, Jon Stewart summarized the whole mess best.

To close things up, let me just mention that I will not be voting for Bachmann...

Best op-ed piece in a while.

Why one should always use a throwaway when posting to casual encounters

Yet another member of the GOP has succumbed to Craigslist:
The fun never ends, Indiana state Rep. Phillip Hinkle (R) -- responding to a local posting on Craigslist -- offered a young man $80 plus tip to spend time with him Saturday night at a local hotel, with a tip of up to $50 or $60 "for a really good time."
Now I have never slept with a prostitute, and so, am not familiar with tipping etiquette but I"d say that the only constant between this guys private life and public Platform (voting down equality legislation) is unwillingness to pay a living wage/leave a decent tip.

The season is upon us.

The campaign signs are out.

This is means that it is time for us to put our collective nothingness to good work and do some campaigning.

I've checked the local campaign sign codes and as long as we are campaigning for something, any political sign is legal this time of year.

So lets make some signs...

I'll let you know when and where.
