'They are nothing more than anti-Obama birthers.'

That's nonsense.

Well, once they invent a pen that writes in white ink, maybe he will!

Agreed. It's unfair to reduce all the conspiracy theories swirling around their confused, aging skulls to just birtherism.

If she really wanted to lift our spirits, she would take a long walk off a short pier. With her whole fuggin clan. And the dumb-ass boyfriend.

I'm just so sick of her.

The principal theme I hear from the Tea Party folks is fear of this unsustainable debt we are incurring.

They're not alone in this. The Senate Budget Committee Chairman & the Ranking Member both agree - along with a majority of the members of the U. S. Senate.

So what kind of Medicare cuts are they proposing?

Re: Is Sarah Palin going to be our next President?

There are a number of other programs besides Medicare.

If our politicians would simply leave the trust fund alone it might help some.

I know, I was just kidding.

So which items in the Pentagon's budget do the tea partiers want to slash?

There are plenty of items that need to be trimmed, but I would assume the point is if you are complaining, you should be willing to give up something you use and care about...

It is easy to give up programs that you don't personally care about.

It's also easy to claim you have easy-to-apply utopian solutions when there's no chance in hell that your "party" will ever have power.

Also, in Obama's 2008 commencement speech at Wesleyan University, he told about seven hundred 22-year-olds that he needed their help leading a new revolution. I guess he must have been asking them to arm themselves and commit acts of violence, right?

As we all know, when John Lennon sang "Give Peace a Chance" & "All You Need Is Love" , he was really thinking, "Talkin' 'Bout a Revolution"

Many would argue that it's not a utopian decision to attempt to keep the country from going into bankruptcy. They'll argue that it's practical to do so.

The logic is that any program which benefits someone who thinks the government spends too much is automatically the best to eliminate? Do you always advocate governing by spite?

There's nothing practical about inchoate demands to cut deficits without any attempt to articulate the form those cuts will take.

Yeah, um no. Idiot and moron are not in the current version of the DSM. Mental Retardation is:

http://www.mentalhelp.net/poc/view_d...d=10346&cn=208

"The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM) is the repository for all diagnostic criteria describing Mental Disorders, including the diagnosis of Mental Retardation. The DSM is in its fourth, text-revised edition, published in 2000.

The current DSM-IV criteria for diagnosing mental retardation are as follows:

1. Significantly sub-average intellectual functioning: An IQ of approximately 70 or below on an individually administered IQ test. For infants, a clinical judgment for significantly sub-average intellectual functioning.

2. Concurrent deficits or impairments in present adaptive functioning (i.e., the person's effectiveness in meeting the standards expected for his or her age by his or her cultural group) in at least two of the following areas:

Communication is the ability to convey information from one person to another. This involves the individual's ability to understand the message being expressed as well as the ability to express one's self through words or actions.

Self-care and home living are two areas that are closely linked. The individual's ability to navigate through everyday situations involving grooming, feeding, and independent living skills hinge on self-care and home living skills. "

Re: Is Sarah Palin going to be our next President?

The pitbull in lipstick is back!
She's "tired of hearin' the talk talk talk" but Palin wowed Tea Party Nation Inc. with nastiness for fun and profit

I know journalists aren't supposed to use words like mean and dumb, but I can't help it. Palin is one of the meanest people on the public stage today. She wallows in it. She loves it! Also? Possibly one of the dumbest. But mean works, and so does dumb. And so do lies, and there were many mean, dumb lies in her speech.

If you think Palin is mean apparently you've forgotten (or chose to forget) about some of the really mean politicans - Hillary Clinton for example - competent, but mean as hell.

Ah, competency. A fine trait....which Palin is sorely lacking.

Competency - ?

I believe she's a pretty good politician.

She's put the fear of God into the left.

From what I've seen, Republicans are the ones who fear her, because they imagine what would happen if she were their candidate. As far as liberals, I think you're confusing fear with laughter.
