For the week April 8 – April 14th
The 2012 presidential elections are on! Let’s DO THIS!
That’s so 2008, you so 2000-late Comment of the Week
Rethugs and teabaggers still talking that ying yang from 4 years ago. They are just so yesterday.
Rikyrah, Monday Open Thread
See, here’s the thing, IMO.
They’ve spent 4 years calling the POTUS everything but a child of GOD. Those folks who already believe that stuff – they are preaching to the choir.
Outside of calling POTUS a ‘NIGGER’, they’ve done everything else, and folks have heard him called everything else.
So, in a way, they’ve innoculated the President on this point, cause we’ve ‘ been there, done that’ with them.
Them taking a second vote on the Ryan Budget makes no sense, but they did it…and it’s up to the Dems to follow the President’s lead and hang it around their necks like an anvil.
Sorry But That’s Just Who He Is Comment of the Week
He is whiter than Wonder Bread, that’s his world.
Town, Tuesday Open Thread
Former Bush speechwriter Michael Gerson has some advice for Mitt Romney. If you want to improve your standing with women (or Latinos or blacks) pretend to give a damn about them.
But Romney doesn’t care about blacks or Latinos or most women or the poor. He doesn’t care. He’s very uncomfortable about people that aren’t just like him. He can’t fake that and he shouldn’t. He should be himself and run on what he’s comfortable with, which is being president of (white) America. Run a campaign based on restoring America back to its whiteness, where whites were on top and blacks and latinos were not seen or heard.
Why POTUS and FLOTUS Are The SHIZNIT and Beloved WORLDWIDE Comment of the Week
Rhoda, Tuesday Open Thread
I still remember how after the midterms the Obama’s took India by storm; and all those images of them dancing and the people really appreciated that the Obamas were soaking in the country. They really appreciate being the President and First Lady and they worked to open the White House to the world and put themselves out there as ambassadors for the country. They’re very warm and completely humble about that; and it shines through. That’s why even after all the poison of the health care debate and the tea party and the negative ads; the essence of the couple is clear and people like them on a personal level. That’s astounding given the amount of vitriol and hatred from the right.
Media Fail Comment of the Week
GN, Tuesday Open Thread
Notice that when NBC was caught having misquoted Zimmerman we heard about it nonstop for days and days and days. That misquote supposedly exonerated Zimmerman and “proved” he isn’t racist (please don’t ask me how). Yet now that Zimmerman pops up with a website which prominently features pics of the vandalized black cultural center and the Koran-burning pastor’s pro-Zimmerman rally, crickets from the media. They’re merely reporting that Zimmerman is “speaking out” but conveniently omitting the hatred in what he’s saying. It’s insane. I wish that Trayvon’s people were more proactive about pointing out things like this.
Just Replace McCain with Mittens and the Ad Still Works! Comment of the Week
MsKitty, Wednesday Open Thread
I’ve been saying for months that PBO is North Carolina and Mittens is East Podunk State. Expect the score to be run up in the triple digits.
On the downside the folks at Obama HQ will actually have to do some work now. Playing scrabble on the innanets all day is over.
Things That Make You Go Hmmmm Comment of the Week
That musta been one helluva physician huh Zimmerman?
lamh35, Wednesday Afternoon Thread
Things that make you go hmmm…can a broken nose be healed with no bruising in 45 days???
Y’all Musta Forgot! Miss Ann Gonna Be Miss Ann! Comment of the Week
dannie22, Thursday Open Thread
See this is where you negroes are wrong. Missy Ann is a hard working stay at home mom and shame on you for not recognizing it!! When one of the maids didnt show up on time cause her bus was late and Missy Ann was late to her Cotillion meeting that was hard work! Missy Ann had to get that maid told!! Missy Ann didnt want to. And when 1 of the boys’ diapers was wet at 3 am, who do you think it was that got up out of her warm bed and screamed for the nanny!! Why, it was Missy Ann!! Only a hard working mother would do that! And when Missy Ann had to miss 1 of her boys’ school meetings to give the Miss Magnolia Of The Year Award at her Womens’ Auxilary Club, dont you think Missy Ann was torn apart! So dont you dare disparage Missy Ann!
Why Dems Rushing To Play Captain Save a Hoe? Comments of the Week
Why are Dems rushing to defend Ann Romney against comments made by Dem strategist Hilary Rosen, when in fact the comments WERE TRUE?
itgurl_29, Thursday Open Thread
She attacked a ‘white” republican lady. That’s all that matters. Had the script been flipped and a right wing pundit said FLOTUS couldn’t relate to stay at home moms, not a tweet would have been sent. All this outrage is because Ann Romney is from the protected class of white women. And it pisses me off to see folks running the President’s campaign playing into that and protecting her when they don’t even do that for FLOTUS.
This woman is no victim and people need to stop running to her defense.
aleth, Thursday Open Thread
Where is the lie or uproar? She ain’t worked and she had help… she is not an expert on the remaining 99% of women. Jeez.. desperation is not cute.
Its weird to see the whole protect the white damsel in distress play out. I wish the First Lady got that protection from these same democrats and outrage rightist.
Oh reading “The Obama diary” is like cancer. Jeez they panic over little shit. Rosen is a clintonista.. if anyone supports women its her.
Where is the outrage from the media when disgusting statements are made about the first lady.. oh i forgot she is not a human being.
Get the fuck out of here with this nonsense. If this will make white women vote for romney then they deserve everything coming their way. I am done with the double standard.
Fuck this shit.
woody45, Thursday Open Thread
Me: “The RedSox are off to a rough start.”
Headline: Obama supporter hates Massachusetts.
Axelod tweet: That was shameful and uncalled for.
Messina tweet: The President loves the Northeast.
And then here comes the panic from the usual suspects. “This is going to hurt the President bad. Why I don’t know but take my word for it. It will!!
Daltex82, Thursday Afternoon Thread
Were was this outrage when those NASCAR necks booed Mrs. Obama? Were was the outrage when they falsely accused Mrs. Obama of wasting taxpayer money on trips and spending sprees? Were was the outrage when some rethug made reference to Mrs Obama and an escaped animal from the zoo? You heard nothing, nada, zip it was so quite you could hear a rat piss on cotton and now you have all this fake outrage and unnecessary apologizing simply because someone told the truth about Missy Ann, how utterly pathetic the media, the right and a great number of folks on the left are.

NORTH KOREA. Ensure your next rocket launch is successful by simply standing it in a milk bottle. (via @Mr_R1cardo)
North Korea is seriously suffering some projectile dysfunction.
At this point I think Japan may just give North Korea a rocket that works just to shut the little schnauzer up
Hey, North Korea! Congrats on your super-successful missile that fell into the sea with a plop before it even got higher than your leader
Poor old North Korea. They should start with something smaller than a rocket launch. Like a raffle or something.
BREAKING: North Korea’s Attempt to Sync iPhone Fails
Let me be clear. I’m not concerned about Ann, Mitt, Tagg, Chaz, Larry, Curly, Moe or any of the other Romneys.
