I had to shut off that Bryan Fishingforfollowers. When in doubt always fall back on a comparison to Hitler, the less informed will follow along like lemmings and those are informed, will ignore you.
Anti-Christian, the new flag waving for those who spread hate, deception and lies. I would bet this moron thinks that Ted Cruz is really "on to something" with his latest, "We need 100 of Jesse Helms in the Senate".

We had a national debt the day George Washington took office and technically we still have not paid that off in full. Nations, contrary to the pablum fed to the public, do not operate on the same budget system as individuals.

Have a very good day TC -

Nice pickings for Friday the 13th, TomCat.
This was your best Borowitz post to date. I was laughing so hard, my husband rushed in to see what was wrong with me and then joined in the laughter after reading.

This Rachel Meadow show should be mandatory for Democrats and force fed to Republicans. It is appalling that Republicans can say one thing, in opposition to Obama of course, one day and then, when Obama goes along with them, say the complete opposite the next day, naturally in opposition. Why is nobody confronting them with their own statements during the debates? Are they all asleep or playing poker?

Even I - a relative newcomer - think that Right-wing Christians painting themselves in the victim corner is getting very tedious. But the blatant lies and hate-rousing never fail to baffle me.

Puzzle 3:02 I always liked creating with my hands! Doing it collaboratively is even better!

Black cat With the exception of a tiny white mustache along his upper lip, oh and white whiskers aside his nose, this could be Primo. For those who would like to see pictures of my kids, here is a link . Just click on Album: My Kids

The New Yorker McCon Job really knows his projection techniques doesn't he?! It is also amusing that on one hand McCon Job refers to Mr Obama as an "Ivy League law professor", and on the other hand, he and his Republicanus/Teabaggers say Mr Obama doesn't know squat about the law, constitutional law in particular. AB has captured the essence of this dithering Republicanus/Teabagger!

MSNBC Listening to the likes of Rove, Cornyn and Inhofe, you know that they are all about the Republicanus/Teabagger strategy of obstruction and obfuscation, even when it means that they have to eat their own words from previous pronouncements. I have always felt that the real solution lies within the international community. There is no doubt in my mind that Russia is being more "open" to action because this action could alsoo affect their southern area, the Caucuses, a largely Muslim area.

Right Wing Watch Bryan Fischer is the spawn of Satan, manipulating facts, or perhaps bastardising facts to give his lies some semblance of credence. He is no more Christian than Osama bin Laden's big toe!

Cartoon . . . and it hasn't looked back since! The Republicanus/Teabaggers really need a lesson in history, badly!

Funny how Borowitz seems know exactly what McCon is thinking, the Republicans have never met a war they didn't like and with McCon at the helm they are all too ready to start another one.

If only they would watch Maddow, probably the best on MSNBC and does her homework, something none in the GOP even attempts to do. They lie so often even they believe what they say.

Borowitz is a hoot. McCain is a fool.
I'm adrift on the puzzle :(.
