Tom, your "ad" with Mitch McConnell should be submitted to the Obama campaign and run in every newspaper and magazine so that it might shake people out of their stupors.
Did anyone watch Frontline last night? One of the interviewees who knew Romney said that Romney has never stood on values, he can't even think in terms of human values. He is out to win, and will stoop to any lie required, as long as he wins for all his own narcissistic reasons, but backed by the heinous group of the GOP, and quoting you, the "Republicans wish to establish a permanent totalitarian regime of one-party rule in which elections do not matter" will become the reality we will be forced to "live" in. Romney doesn't give a damn about this country, has no values except when it comes to his own dollar count, his loyalty is only to his Mormon church (which we know very little about, and fundamentalists should be turning away) if anything, and his win will be hijacked by the Limbaugh's of the world for their own ruling agenda. It will be whatever suits them and the rest of us are sheep to be harvested and slaughtered .

Obama wanted to unify and get everyone to work together, but they don't care about this country whatsoever. They try to paint him like a loser because he could not get the obstruction they posed out of the way of doing the right thing for the USA. What they stand for and what they have done is treasonous.

Their agenda is to take control and take away all our rights because we are in their way to world domination.......i.e., money in their own pockets, power for the elite who are all psychopaths if this is how they think. It all started with the Kennedy assassination, and its about to take its final move to take over everything. This is the ends justifying the means, which is how the mob operates. It is a degenerate agenda, and actually very evil when you consider that they have blood on their hands of millions of people.

Its like living in a Harry Potter movie, only worse. Its good vs. evil.
This is our lives, our country and we can't allow it.

VOTE OBAMA 2012, and get everyone out there!!! I urge all to take proactive action, because sitting on your behinds and shaking your heads is not going to do anything. Get out there and get people out there to vote, to wake up before its too late, to take the vampires and snakes down because that is exactly what they are.

The voters in Kentucky need to get Mitch McConnell out of office.

Sadly, the people there, in Kentucky, seem to be so hopelessly Ill-informed about his record in congress.

DeLay should be in prison right now while fighting the charges against him. Other people, when found guilty,
are remanded into prison... So how does he get "special favors"....

Ty, Tom.

Tom, I love the cartoon from MoveOn and agree with Camila, it should be in a Obama ad campaign on televisions in every state. As for Limpballs, what can I say, wish in a way he was in a mental hospital, that is where he belongs as far as I'm concerned. It is amazing the stuff that comes out of his mouth without repercussions that last very long anyway.

On a good note, we have been away visiting friends in Reno, NV and am happy to report that there are many more Democrats there then before. Looks like it may not be a red state for long, at least that is what it appears may just happen. While there went to dinner with some of their Repub friends and they can't stand Hannity or Coulter and dislike O'Reilly, they said they may change their mind on Wrongmey too! Hooray!!!

Another note, a friend of our grand daughter is a Mormon and asked Danielle who she would vote for, Danielle replied Obama and her friend said something like this - "We would vote for him too but we can't because he is a Mormon and we have to vote fot him". Disgusting...

Wish I could send you another star Camila. And to Carlene~ i know I have told you that my sister and "that " part of the family are right right wing Evangelicals. I asked my sis how she feels about voting for a Mormon, which we always believed that Mormonism is a cult. She responded "I have no other choice". I wanted to scream at her - you do have a choice. We all have the intelligent choice to make - Obama/Biden 2012

Puzzle 4:07 Bow wow from a confirmed cat lover!

MoveOn Amen!!! The Republican/Teabaggers are an insult to the American people and most definitely do not deserve their support! They look more like King George III of Britain, the very person and system that the founding fathers fought and rebelled against.

CBS Romney said he was "in favor of a pro-life policy." He's like a magician now you see it, now you don't! He keeps changing his mind. There was The Big Bopper in music. Now we have The Big Flip-flopper in politics!

Washington Post It is always the ones that don't deserve a "technicality" that seem to get them.

Cartoon I was feeling fine until I saw Limbaugh's picture. What a snake!
For someone who is so pro-life, he sure has a pro-death attitude when it comes to war!

Get out the vote!!!!!

Vote Democratic 2012!!!!! Vote Obama/Biden 2012!!!!!

Thanks, Tom for this post. Mitch needs to be ditched, and as an "ill-informed" Kentucky voter, I have been doing my best to do that since the first year he was elected. Sorry, Jim Phillips, but not ALL of us are ill informed, we are just in a minority. Dotty Lydon, Mormonism is not a cult and not one person has been told they HAD to vote for Romney. If someone feels that way it is pressure coming from their family or someone else. Many of my family are MOrmons and they would burn down the church building if someone told them how to vote.

Please share this definition of socipath, the illness suffered by Romney and his GOP cohorts:

The World Health Organization's International Statistical Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems, tenth edition (ICD-10), defines a conceptually similar disorder to antisocial personality disorder called (F60.2) Dissocial personality disorder.[4]

It is characterized by AT LEAST 3 of the following:

Callous unconcern for the feelings of others.
Gross and persistent attitude of irresponsibility and disregard for social norms, rules, and obligations.
Incapacity to maintain enduring relationships, though having no difficulty in establishing them.
Very low tolerance to frustration and a low threshold for discharge of aggression, including violence.
Incapacity to experience guilt or to profit from experience, particularly punishment.
Markedly prone to blame others or to offer plausible rationalizations for the behavior that has brought the person into conflict with society.

There may be persistent irritability as an associated feature.

The diagnosis includes what may be referred to as amoral, antisocial, psychopathic, and sociopathic personality (disorder).
