  1. Well he certainly won by an impressive an margin, or considering we’re discussing Rahm, should I have said “big fucking margin”.

    Turns out Gov. Walker’s budget bill gives the Governor authority to sell off the state owned power plants w/o competitive bids. Perhaps to the Koch brothers:

    I love the smell of corruption in the morning.

  3. The more we learn about the so called budget bill in WI the more it stinks!

    Justice Department to Stop Defending Federal Law on Gay Marriage

    President Obama, in a major legal policy shift, has directed
    the Justice Department to stop defending the Defense of
    Marriage Act – the 1996 law that bars federal recognition of
    same-sex marriages – against lawsuits challenging it as
    unconstitutional.

    Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. on Wednesday sent a
    letter to Congress to inform them that the Justice Department
    will now take the position in court that the Defense of
    Marriage Act should be struck down as a violation of gay
    couples’ rights to equal protection under the law.

    “The President and I have concluded that classifications
    based on sexual orientation warrant heightened scrutiny and
    that, as applied to same-sex couples legally married under
    state law” a crucial provision of the Defense of Marriage Act
    is unconstitutional, Mr. Holder wrote.

    I hope everyone who voted for the Republicans in Nov is happy with the results now they’ve been sworn in and taking over.

  6. Newt Gingrich Affair Questioned By College Student

    “As a successful politician who’s considering running for president, who would set the bar for moral conduct and be the voice of the American people, how do you reconcile this hypocritical interpretation of the religious values that you so vigorously defend?”

    Glad Rahm Emmanuel won the mayorship.

    Really makes that appeals court look like a bunch of hacks.

  8. The more info that comes out about the Koch brothers and what’s going on in Wisconsin and other states the more I think Obama should start looking to Teddy Roosevelt as a role model.

  9. Huckabee Slams Obama On DOMA, Implies Link Between Gay Marriage And Broken Homes

    “There is a quantified impact of broken families,” Huckabee said. “[There is a] $300 billion dad deficit in America every year…that’s the amount of money that we spend as taxpayers to pick up the pieces because dads are derelict in their duties.”

    That’s a pretty big leap the former gov, is making, I don’t see the connection myself. Can anyone help me out?

    Agreed re Teddy Roosevelt as role model!

    The parallels re monopolies are depressing.

    Besides, the Republicans don’t claim TR as their own. Too problematic for them.
