Leave Marcus Alone!

Barack Obama will be the last President of the United States from the Democratic Party. There’s no disputing that. With forty states recently enacting voter suppression laws, this is a mathematical certainty. Michele Bachmann will be the first female President of the United States, at least as things stand right now. While Washington is playing silly games over raising the debt ceiling, the vast majority of Americans care about one thing and one thing only – jobs.

Since the republican party has assumed power, compliments of the Tea Party tsunami last November, not a single jobs bill has been presented to Obama for his signature. However, republicans have done a marvelous job torturing logic and have put this failure squarely on Obama. Hell, Obama’s solution to the debt crisis cuts the deficit more than the republican’s plan; but because it increases revenues, the Tea Party will never go along with it. Another in a long list of failures by this Administration; caused by republicans, for which Obama is blamed.

To my point about Marcus Bachmann. He will be the first First Man. He’s been getting quite a lot of heat for battling his own demons, with regard to his homosexuality. And most of the attacks are coming from liberals, who usually support the LGBT community. We’re sending the wrong message. The culture wars will only escalate once a gay republican moves into the White House. Will we be divided by partisanship? Or will we be united in the struggle for equal rights for all Americans…


The devil is dancing tonight!

Question: Why are conservative talking-heads blaming liberals for the Casey Anthony verdict?

Answer: They didn’t like the result.

From Limbaugh to O’Reilly, the jury was too liberal, the media is too liberal, the nation is too liberal, somehow it’s all about abortion, on and on and on…

The facts: Casey Anthony juror Jennifer Ford said that she and the other jurors cried and were “sick to our stomachs” after voting to acquit Casey Anthony of charges that she killed her 2-year-old daughter Caylee. “If there was a dead child in that trunk, does that prove how she died? No idea, still no idea.” Ford told “Nightline” anchor Terry Moran. “If you’re going to charge someone with murder, don’t you have to know how they killed someone or why they might have killed someone, or have something where, when, why, how? Those are important questions. They were not answered.”

So what the hell does politics have to do with any of this? Well, as Abraham Maslow said, “It is tempting, if the only tool you have is a hammer, to treat everything as if it were a nail.”

I did not have sexual relations with that dolphin

I have no one to blame but myself. See, I was bored and there was nothing on TV, so as I was flipping through the channels, I saw Keith Olbermann’s Countdown show was on Al Gore’s network. I’ll admit I was curious. I thought, what the hell, I’ll give it a shot.

Olbermann spent the better part of the hour ripping President Obama mercilessly over what he said, and didn’t say, at his press conference earlier that day.

On Libya: He sarcastically muttered, no, we’re not at war, we’re just dropping care packages that explode…

On dealing with Congress: First, he complained Obama was giving away too much in the negotiations, then he complained Obama was stupid to think the Republicans were going to come to any kind of agreement after the Sasha and Malia do their homework line.

On gay marriage: Obama wasn’t going to make news on that front today. If not now, when?!?

I guess Olbermann thinks stopping a madman from killing hundreds of thousands of his own people is a bad idea. I guess Olbermann thinks the President can just wave the Fourteenth Amendment in front of the GOP and Darrell Issa won’t begin impeachment proceedings immediately. I guess Olbermann thinks the issue of gay marriage should trump discussion of how to avoid financial Armageddon. Apparently, gays don’t need jobs…

The State of New York did a wonderful thing passing gay marriage legislation last Friday. But do you really want the main story over the next week to be about Santorum’s man-on-dog sexual fantasy, or Bill O’Reilly’s slippery-slope argument that people will start marrying dolphins?

Here’s hoping Olbermann’s tenure at Current TV is very, very brief…
