Anyone catch the Rendell "God Damn."

Talking about the NRA opposition to gun control laws, they had cut away from him but you could hear him mutter the words.

And Horse Prom is Black Tie Mutha F$%ER

If you haven't seen, watch both segments, classic.


Malkin sneers at those who sign the "back" of the check - Which side is promoting class warfare?

If you can't stomach three minutes of Michelle, it is at the very end of the clip.


It just hit me - more bad press for Romney

It appears that the rest of this week, at a minimum, will be focused on Bain and Romney tax returns.

In a couple of weeks the Olympics start so that will dominate the news. BUT and it is a large horse sized BUTT, the Romney's have their horse competing in Dressage.

NBC will have to cover it and Joe and Jane average Americans are going to do a collective WTF!


Another path Romney and the media are trying to lead us down - the CEO B.S. meme

Many of us have likely worked at companies where the CEO was somewhat absent, somewhat aloof, not heavily involved. Like the 100k salary mentioned over and over, it is B.S., a tactical lie. The salary claim is over 100k, OVER. As many have pointed out this could be $100,000.01 or 1 million or 10 million, but is definitely not 100k.

On the SEC filing Mitt was listed as Chief Executive Officer, President, and Managing Director. See how it works, you can claim to be an aloof CEO, but how the hell can you claim that if you list yourself as Managing Director.

He was Managing Director of Bain Capital.


Anyone else think Karen Finney is HOT

I need to go back to work. Tamron Hall, Alex Wagner,... if I don't get a gig soon Chris Matthews might be attactive.

To be clear, Chris is in front of Andrea Greenspan.

From the grave Senator Kennedy provides a gift to Democrats

The opposition research most likely originated from the Kennedy campaign.

Thank you Sir.

BWAHAHAHA - Romney getting trapped in his own web of lies

In Romney's 2002 race for governor, he testified before the state Ballot Law Commission that his separation from Bain in 1999 had been a "leave of absence" and not a final departure.
And why was Mitt Romney testifying before the Massachusetts Ballot Law Commission? Because, it turns out, for three years he paid property taxes to Utah while claiming his $3.8 million Park City mansion was his "primary residence." And unless he could convince the Commission that was a mistake and that his tony Belmont estate was still home, Bain Capital CEO Romney would never have become Governor Romney.
Mitt Romney the former Salt Lake City Olympics chief now running for Massachusetts governor paid property taxes on a Utah home as his "primary residence" between 1999 and 2001 and received a $54,600 tax discount as a result.
The distinction which Utah officials said was made in error fueled the debate about whether Romney meets Massachusetts' residential requirements to be governor. The state Constitution requires a candidate to live in Massachusetts for seven years prior to election.

The Irony and Karma of Bain/Bane

bane (bn)
1. Fatal injury or ruin: "Hath some fond lover tic'd thee to thy bane?" (George Herbert).
a. A cause of harm, ruin, or death: "Obedience,/Bane of all genius, virtue, freedom, truth,/Makes slaves of men" (Percy Bysshe Shelley).
b. A source of persistent annoyance or exasperation: "The spellings of foreign names are often the bane of busy copy editors" (Norm Goldstein).
3. A deadly poison.

As Andrea Greenspan turns!

She had on James Carville and Stan Greenberg on to discuss their new book, a few of her comments, mostly made by interrupting the two men while they were giving props to Obama for how is governing and handling Romney:

"Does Obama love politics like Bill Clinton"

"But will there be a blow back from this populist message"

"Well, should he have focused on the Economy rather than ACA"
