    You keep hiding behind the myth of my purported hatred of Jews. That’s a sorry attempt to deflect from the real discussion. Let’s put some more facts on the table here: 1) Antisemitism is real! It exists all over the world and has for centuries. Just because someone points out that theft is theft doesn’t [...]

    Uhmmm…no, the land did not belong to Britain. Look at the real estate deeds and titles that go back hundreds of years and you will find out who owned the land. And don’t bother trying the UN Mandate argument either. They didn’t own the title to the land either. Just because the UN did something stupid, and [...]

    Yes, let’s put things “in context”. Ask those who’ve had their land stolen for the last 65 years if all that needs to be done is just put things “in context” and a theft is no longer a theft. And yes, continue to invent my purported imaginary hatred of Israel as a sufficient argument to [...]

    So your argument is that since the Arabs hold 99% of the land mass in the ME, that is justification for Israel stealing someone else’s land for the last 65 years? Hmmm…the 1% of the wealthiest folks in the US hold 60% of the US wealth so that is justification for the 99% of rest [...]

    You are entitled to your own opinion, but not your own set of facts. Theft is theft. You can’t hide behind name calling. Try defending the theft of someone else’s land for the last 65 years by Israel. Tap…tap…tap. We’re waiting. How about the standard argument that Israel needs to acquire more land for its [...]

    Funny how stealing land for the last 65 years means Israel is always right.

  • MadDog commented on the blog post Senate Republicans Block Judicial Nominee from DC Circuit

    David, one of the reasons I surmise is that the DC Circuit Court of Appeals handles all of the National Security issues like stuff for the CIA, the NSA, the DOD and the DOJ.

    The Repugs have stacked the DC Circuit over the last decade with conservative wackos like Judges Janice Rogers Brown who recently ruled in the Latiff case that rendered habeus corpus effectively null and void for Gitmo detainees.

    Just like the Repugs have stacked the Supreme Court with their conservative wacko nominees, so too are the Repugs ensuring that the DC Circuit will not get in their way in establishing their Wingnut Millenium.

    It has been a decades-long sabotage effort to realign the Federal courts to the wingnuts’ liking, and we can thank Edwin Meese for the pleasure.

    The Democrats, the ones who even deign to worry about this, dare not confront the Repugs. On this matter, if you stacked all of the Senate Democrats together, you wouldn’t find enough principled backbone to fill a thimble.

    Yeah, bombing Iran’s nuclear facilities first must be an act of self-defense by the nuclear-armed Israel. Just like bombing Syria’s purported nuclear facilities first was an act of self-defense by the nuclear-armed Israel. Just like stealing someone else’s land is perfectly legal by Israel’s standards. Amazing how some people can justify anything illegal and criminal [...]

  • “Class warfare” is the new Repug attack buzzword. It’s getting repeated everywhere in the MSM.

    I always find it peculiarly odd that the MSM never seems to remark on the fact that the Repugs always accuse others of what they themselves are guilty of.

    Repugs have been conducting “class warfare” for decades.

    “Class warfare” in support of the permanent ruling overclass of MOTU billionaires, millionaires, and other sundry robber barons.

    “Class warfare” against the poor, the minorities, and the middle class.

    “Class warfare” against unions, teachers, scientists, and government workers.

    The outrage that Repugs express today with their charges of “Class warfare” are only outweighed by depth of their beliefs in their own lies.

    The schadenfreude is particularly delicious today. Would you care for a slice?

    Perhaps washing it down with some Krug would help?

    I think there’s an opportunity here for a Mondo T-shirt gig.

    Everyone should contribute at least one design:

    The Clintons were obsessive about every little political nit, but Obama’s pathology beats them hands down.

    In the corn fields of Illinois:

    Owww! Somebody tie this string to the bus. Owww!

    Later this evening at Air Force one:

    Owww! Somebody tie this string to the plane. Owww!

    Later this evening at Marine One helicopter:

    Owww! Somebody tie this string to the helicopter. Owww!

    Later this evening getting ready for bed:

    Honey, is that toothache still bothering you? I told you to stop reading FDL and the NYT, didn’t I?

    Owww! Somebody tie this string to the Bo. Owww!

    I’m from Minnesota, so I know and despise TPaw. But having said that, this bolded part of the quote from over at Politico is TPaw admitting the truth:

    …“What I brought forward, I thought, was a rational, established, credible, strong record of results, based on experience governing — a two-term governor of a blue state,” said Pawlenty. “But I think the audience, so to speak, was looking for something different.”

    Very simply, TPaw is admitting what we all know, and the MSM refuses to speak out loud: “The Crazies want a Crazy.”

    After their loss in the 2008 elections, the only folks left willing to be identified as Republicans were the Crazies.

    As I said of the Republicans at the time, “When all you have left is Crazy, you go with Crazy.”

    I now would add the following corollary: “When you go with Crazy, all you get is Crazy.”
