Even the Ragin’ Cajun says that the White House was “out of bounds” when it tried to schedule Obama’s “jobs” speech over the Republican debate.
“I do think this is a really big debate, and I think the White House was out of bounds . . . in trying to schedule a speech during a debate,” Carville said.
Given a “choice between watching a debate and the speech, I would have watched the debate and I’m not even a Republican or even close to being a Republican,” he said.

The 78th of 365 Ways to Drive a Liberal Crazy: Tell a joke:
Q: What’s the difference between a liberal and a puppy?
A: A puppy stops whining after it grows up.
Now that’s funny, I don’t care who y’are. Unless you’re a liberal. Then you’ll just whine about it.
Nature or nurture? A little of both, as it turns out:
By matching genetic information with maps of the subjects’ social networks, the researchers were able to show that people with a specific variant of the DRD4 gene were more likely to be liberal as adults, but only if they had an active social life in adolescence.
Dopamine is a neurotransmitter affecting brain processes that control movement, emotional response, and ability to experience pleasure and pain. Previous research has identified a connection between a variant of this gene and novelty-seeking behavior, and this behavior has previously been associated with personality traits related to political liberalism.
Note that an earlier study found that variation of the DRD4 gene correlated with alcoholism, sex addiction and gambling, not to mention attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Further, polymorphism in the gene sequencing of DRD4 is associated with reduced ability to experience disgust as well as a number of other mental disorders:
The DRD4 polymorphism has been studied in association with illnesses like schizophrenia, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), obsessive-compulsive with tics, bipolar manic-depressive disorder, in addition behavioral traits such as novelty seeking. The DRD4 gene is a genetic marker that could play a role in etiology of different mental illness, and behavioral traits, and its polymorphism can be used in association studies, epigenetic and pharmacogenomic analysis for help to understand the genetics basis of both mental disorders and traits.
You can’t argue with science.
New Jersey citizens are undertaking the colossal task of recalling Social Democrat Senator Robert Menendez. Recall requires collecting about 1.3M signatures.
Menendez is fighting back in typical liberal fashion: he is litigating to keep his job:
While New Jersey’s constitution explicitly allows the recall of federal officials, Menendez, is arguing that such a move violates that U.S. Constitution, which doesn’t address recalls.
“Mainstream New Jerseyans believe deeply in the U.S. Constitution that for more than 200 years has made ours the greatest form of government in world history,” a spokesman for Menendez said in a statement. “This attack on the Constitution undermines our uniquely American system of democracy and will be contested.”
This is the thinnest of all possible tactics which is bound to fail in the courts and will do nothing except fan the flames of the recall movement. This is the act of a desperate man.
Perhaps bankruptcy procedures mandate selling off private information in order to pay the creditors; the auction house has the emails listed under “intellectual property.” Most private individuals would disagree, but information like this is bought and sold all the time.
If nothing else, this should serve as a cautionary tale to everyone who gives out their information to any organization. Personally, I take great pleasure in giving out misinformation (e.g., something close to, but not quite, my real name with completely incorrect demographic information). I recently received a donation appeal (complete with an already-completed membership card) to the NAACP, as well as a complementary subscription to a magazine marketed to young African-American women. Yep, filled out one little online survey and suddenly I’m a young black woman on marketing lists across the nation.
Now that’s funny, I don’t care who y’are.

Even the MSM is joining in the Obamacare Regret train. From CBS News:
One such surprise is found on page 158 of the legislation, which appears to create a carve out for senior staff members in the leadership offices and on congressional committees, essentially exempting those senior Democrat staffers who wrote the bill from being forced to purchase health care plans in the same way as other Americans. …
This problem was acknowledged earlier in the process – last year, Senator Grassley tried to repair it, but he was rebuffed.
As Speaker Pelosi said a few weeks ago, it’s only after this legislation is passed that we’ll truly find out what’s in it
One law for them that make ’em, another for the rest of us. Is that what “Change” looks like?
The blogosphere is all a-twitter about Dan Rather saying that Obama couldn’t sell watermelons if you gave him state troopers to flag down the traffic. And yes, at first glance, his statements do appear to be “racist rhetoric”:
DAN RATHER: Part of the undertow in the coming election is going to be President Obama’s leadership. And the Republicans will make a case and a lot of independents will buy this argument. “Listen he just hasn’t been, look at the health care bill. It was his number one priority. It took him forever to get it through and he had to compromise it to death.” And a version of, “Listen he’s a nice person, he’s very articulate” this is what’s been used against him, “but he couldn’t sell watermelons if it, you gave him the state troopers to flag down the traffic.“
I’m certainly no lover of extreme-left talking heads, but I don’t believe Rather was being racist. I think he was stereotyping conservatives as racists. That is, he wasn’t saying that Obama couldn’t sell watermelons, he was saying that Republicans will say that Obama couldn’t sell watermelons.
So while Rather wasn’t being racist, he was being a typical left-wing moonbat. And yes, I see the irony of me saying that.

Let us have a moment of silence to mourn the passing of granola-chomping tree hugging terrorist lover yammering on the airwaves.
OK, that’s long enough. Now let’s get on to more important things.
