Anyone need an affordable burp cloth that doesn't like shit and cost too fucking much?

Ha ha, this is funny! Dobson calling out Obama for pointing out some of the crap fundamentalists cite in the Old Testament (Leviticus) all the time. Dobson says, basically, that it's the Old Testament, that people should be paying more attention, as Christians to the New Testament. Fair enough. Then call out all the nuts who cite the Old Testament verses as the Law.

Although I'm a little concerned about the public opinion shift among some towards a more receptive attitude for offshore drilling (that's a convoluted way of saying people dumb enough to have bought a Hummer or a Ford Excursion are really getting desperate now), I'm not THAT concerned. This is an obvious ploy by a lame duck administration to get a few more chits for their cronies in the oil industry, nothing more. They're once again trying to fuel (ahem) the debate, but I believe it will backfire (heh). How? By getting McCain in line with the pro-drilling forces. Now the cards are on the table, another example of "McSame."

And then all it takes is to convince people how stupid the idea is, and how it won't work. All that will take is a little common sense: by the time any offshore drilling would have any effect, and it's doubtful that it would, it would be too late to matter. And, in the time (estimated 2030ish) it would take to do that, we could have instead implemented an alternative vehicle strategy that encourages EV vehicles among others, and they'd certainly be in production by then. Right?

Well, we had an EV a while back. But they killed it.
Ok, a couple of volunteers at Obama's campaign told two muslim women not to sit behind Obama in fear that the wingnuts would seize on this image and try to further paint Barack as a Muslim in disguise. Here's a link.

Maybe it's unfortunate, but maybe it's also an opportunity to remind everyone about what matters and what doesn't. Now, the next time there's an event and a couple of women wearing headscarves sitting behind our candidate at an event somewhere, some nut somewhere will say "See, he supports terrorists, they're sitting right there," someone else can remind him that it was also he who made a big deal earlier about the campaign staffer who "discriminated" against muslim women. Or, I suppose the same nut can take it a step further and say..."well, they was scared that the truth would come out about their terrorist leanings before, which is why they didn't let them women up there but now, see, they done slipped up." At which point the rest of us can go: Man, that guy is a NUT.

The fat lady is not singing yet, but barring something unforeseen, I believe I hear her warming up. Really, I do.

The first leading indicator of the coming downfall of Fox News? O'Reilly is not "on top" in the ratings anymore for the key ratings indicator for that time slot. Olbermann is. Sign of a trend? Methinks.

The truth of the matter is, wingnuts will always turn to Fox so long as it's being run by a wingnut. What's more important is where the regular folks go.
Contrary to some, I think Fox News is getting desperate with their rhetoric. They know their time is about up. There's this, too. And this. Thanks to TPM for the former, Huffpost for the latter. Yep, I enjoy my liberal biased news.

Our long national nightmare is over apparently. And, boy, McCain looks bad. I also foresee the wingnuts defecting to Bob Barr. Gosh, this is going to be fun. Strap in.
