Gentleman Mitt Romney To Uppity Teacher: ‘I Didn’t Ask You a Question’

Here is a video from a nice lady who attended a Romney roundtable all interested and optimistic about the whole thing until Romney asked, “Which one of you is the teacher?” and being a teacher, this nice lady raised her hand. Then Romney began lecturing her about teachers unions and how we need to privatize everything and have charter schools, and how we suck as a country compared to Other Countries. Kind of tired of being lectured, this nice lady said “Oh I have an answer for that.” Romney, being the gentleman he is, responded “I didn’t ask you a question.” Read more on Gentleman Mitt Romney To Uppity Teacher: ‘I Didn’t Ask You a Question’…

Keith Olbermann So Sick of Daily Kos Commenters

MSNBC host Keith Olbermann is sick and tired of you libtards complaining about him on the DailyKos. So that’s it, no more Keith Olbermann blog posts on the Daily Kos … unless you people start behaving. You don’t have to behave really well, just make the site “the way it was even a year ago,” and then “let me know and I’ll be back.” Will it happen? Can it happen? More and more, it seems like every dream of the Obama Presidency is an oil-soaked dead pelican. [DailyKos] Read more on Keith Olbermann So Sick of Daily Kos Commenters…

Rumors On The Internets: We Weren’t Alive In The Sixties

“There’s a growing constituency of low-income white folks in America who aren’t duped any longer… Back in the Sixties, along with the Black Panthers, Young Lords, and the Brown Berets, there was a group of what detractors derided as “white trailer trash” called Rising Up Angry. Its awareness and militancy were second to none.” [Smirking Chimp] Read more on Rumors On The Internets: We Weren’t Alive In The Sixties…

Last Night a Blogger Saved My Life

’cause I was sittin’ there bored to death… Yearly Kos was a great success! I just got a call that someone “crashed my gate” and drove through my house, driving through my office and my daughter’s room (her crib turned up in the backyard). Had we been home, there would have been a good chance that I would have been working at my desk, and she would have certainly been sleeping in bed. Instead, though, I was here and she was staying with my folks, so the family’s fine. Read more on Last Night a Blogger Saved My Life…
 

So, Yearly Kos, Then

Oh, man, should we have been paying attention to this? Seriously? We’ve known about it for a while, seemed like it might be fun, thought about trying to convince someone to pay for us to go to Vegas, but seriously, we thought it’d be like a Mediabistro party, you know, cash bar and classes in getting the attention of actual important people. But the media presence there is nuts. Three NPR reporters, a couple Times-ites (including Maureen Dowd and, above, Kate Phillips, inexplicably writing in first-person and bitching about having to get up early), Original Wonkette, and probably two dozen freelancers trying to pitch it to magazines.

[Daily Kos] * When he’s not postcoitally escaping Ann Coulter, Alec Baldwin’s defending his commendation of Bill O’Reilly. Respect Bill’s skills, if not his ability to hold back cheap shots at a Baldwin. [HuffPo] * All those Mexican flags on the left coast got Michelle Malkin confused. Send Old Glory to the DeskJet and wave her proudly. [Michelle Malkin] * Running out of ways to disappoint Jesus? Pierce your tongue. Contract Herpes. Share someone’s toothbrush. Increase your odds of being smote by the increasingly hard to please Christ child. [Evangelical Outpost] * Globalization need not confuse you.

Rumors on the Internet: Christian Convert Does Shooters With Dutch Cartoonists

* Captain Ed begins the petition for convert’s sainthood, then pees on Edward Gibbon’s leg: “Muslims have always been singular in their use of violence to both convert and to keep their own from converting . . . ” Then we piss on the captain’s leg by quoting him out of context: ” . . . religious freedom only belongs in Europe and the Americas.” [Captain’s Quarters] * Howie wonders why Jesus isn’t super cool anymore. His commenters tuck him in, then blow shit up. [The Jawa Report] * Frank J. Read more on Rumors on the Internet: Christian Convert Does Shooters With Dutch Cartoonists…
