    There for a minute I thought “How Great I Am” was going to be a story about Newt Gingrich. 

  • On the Herman Cain article – you think Cain doesn’t know firing employees who unionize is illegal? Of course he knows, as does every other union-busting corporation in this country. But the fine is pathetically small, and most businesses these days just consider it the cost of doing business.

    The next time someone asks me why I have such distaste for the current incarnation of the GOP I’m going to point them to the comments on that article about the Pennsylvania voter ID rules. The commenters don’t act like the nightmares on Fox News boards and other Right wing sites, so they can’t be written off as mere trolls, and yet they’re full of misinformation, outright lies and just plain nastiness.

     Oh god why did I read the comments on that sight? Do they actually think there are that many people who sneak in extra votes? These ignorant fools make me so furious. They’re just scared a black guy is gonna win a second term and god forbid a bunch of college kids (or anyone) get a chance to make it happen.

    Given Rep. Ryan’s worship of Ayn Rand, why hasn’t he been excommunicated? Why haven’t the bishops and his local priests called for his education about the true values of Christian compassion? This Easter would be a prime time to see to his spiritual needs. Because that man needs help and reform badly.
