Good first step in the prez retaking control of the jobs message.
I’ll wait and see what is actually said on Tues. nite and how the other party says it won’t work.
Bev, I hear that Paul “I hate government” Ryan will give the rebuttal.
There’s a good post over at Booman Tribune about a Nazi Senator Mike Lee (R-UT) who believes that the violent rhetoric should not be toned down.
“Following the mass shooting in Tucson, Arizona, that left six dead and Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (R-AZ) in the hospital, there have been calls for politicians and pundits to back off violent rhetoric.
But tea party favorite Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) isn’t about to let the tragedy change his tone. […]
“The shooter wins if we, who’ve been elected, change what we do just because of what he did,” Lee told ABC.”
He says that “The shooter wins”. Read post and see how the Reich-wing uses violent rhetoric all the time at link below.
He has video of Beck, Angle, Bachman (R-MN), Oxycontin Rush and a video of a Carnival Game called “Shooting President Obama”.
Maybe its time for the Left to start using the same tactics against the Republicans and their Reich-ministry Of Propaganda.
After all we wouldn’t want the shooter to win now, do we?
PS: There is an error where Congresswoman Giffords is listed as a (R-AZ) instead of a Democrat from Arizona.
This was a beautiful story.
We should comment on the blog during tomorrow night’s SOTU, if we’re around.
Meantime, here’s more than you maybe wanted to know about crafting the SOTU, and its history, by a former speechwriter to Al Gore.
Dog – great story.
I gotta feeling this ain’t over yet….
Sorry, couldn’t help myself. Animal House was one of the most socially significant movies since The Sound of Music.
Lawrence O’Donnell SUCKS!
I only caught the last few moments of the show UB. I just found Chrome TV and they stream MSNBC.
well, his comment to KO started as a tribute to the staffers, and writers, it was so scripted and insincere…..I have little patience, even when KO went over board and was out of control he was better than most all on the tube. I fear Rachel may be the next target.
Sometimes you don’t know what you got till it’s gone…
Glad to hear your pal is doing better, and I hope you still like your new place of employment.
Oscar nominations are out. My favorite “little” movie, Winter’s Bone, caught three and deserves every one.
King’s Speech leads with 12 nominations; True Grit got 10.
I thought they had better than average films this year.
Haven’t seen “Black Swan.” Should I?
Make that four for Winter’s Bone. Best adapted screenplay too. Was a novel first.
On the Oscar theme, my prediction is that the President will show “True Grit” tonight at the SOTU address.
The only real question is: will the President make John Boehner cry tonight?
I’m taking Tucker into the vet, the time has come to say goodbye.
Aww man! Goodbye Tucker you will be missed.
Remember: all dogs go to heaven.
Brian: so sorry. Tucker and Ralphie are lucky dudes in their choice of a human.
You did everything you could for Tucker. It’s so hard to let them go.
RIP Charlie Louvin. Born Charlie Elzer Loudermilk in Section, Alabama.
So sorry, Brian, it’s so hard and most of us have been through it. You’ll have great memories to last forever.
Today’s “Pluggers” is a nice tribute to Brian and Tucker the snow dog:
thanks for the kind words all, they mean a lot.
So sorry to hear about Tucker Brian. I know what your feeling since I went through the same thing when I had too say goodbye to Ginger.
This is for you Brian……
This is another of those times one wishes one was a friend in NYC rather than a virtual friend through the ether.
Because it would be way cool to take Brian a pitcher of bracing cold martinis and then out for a good dinner with red wine.
Won’t bring Tucker back, sadly, but a small diversion only.
Can imagine that sounds facile, Brian, but I think we would all be in on the evening.
Aaron Sorkin working up pilot on behind the scenes cable TV news show.
Could be wicked good.
I am guessing Sorkin will win this year’s screenwriting Oscar for “The Social Network.”
Although the movie is not my preference for Best Picture.
