Run Timmi, run! Take a long run off a short plank…
Spread this around.
The Republican “Cut, Cap and Balance” bill? Jay Carney referred to it as “Duck, Dodge and Dismantle” And by dismantle he means the safety net/entitlements.
I love that “Duck, Dodge and Dismantle”. Great analogy.
hit his ass hard Dems
Tiny Tim is just the latest example of Repubs willing to twist themselves into pretzels and trash their previously held beliefs in order to appeal to the faction that used to be considered too extreme even for their own party. Pathetic self-pandering. It hasn’t worked for Romney; it isn’t working for Huntsman; it’s not going to work for Tiny Tim.
Our President stands out in even greater relief for his integrity and character in comparison to these carnival sideshow buffoons.
Exactly Brian. I absolutely concur. I hope they keep exposing TPaw for the charlatan he is. He left Minnesota in a hell hole and the shut down was the result of his atrocious governing. He was gung ho for cap and trade yet now rejects that concept. His economic platform is ridiculous and his whole candidacy is laughable.
Hey, Chipsticks! This is off-topic but I wanted to see if you could help me. Lately my blog posts are getting marked as spam when people try to share them on Facebook. I saw that you had the same problem. Did you ever get it resolved? If so, HOW???!
Thanks a bunch and keep up the stellar work!
Keep up your great work, Eclectablog!!!! Yes we can
You have to use bitly or some other address shrinker that would then disguise the link. You probably could try to get it resolved through facebook but it would probably be an exercise in futility.

I hear that the Tea party is going to have a Twitter townhall. Didn’t take them long to copycat the President, did it?
Yep, so true. BTW, hopefruit2, you mentioned a couple days ago your old ties at the Orange place. Wanted to tell you that I was a fan bigtime. Missed you when you left. Didn’t know you were banned. They couldn’t take what you were puttin out. Glad you are here. Thanks.
Thanks Doris, and yes I got suspended after I questioned an inconsistency in a diarist’s profile. I told them I didn’t care – certain things had to be said. Let them stew in their orange bile, and let them continue to enable GOP operatives while pretending otherwise….soon they will be going down like Murdoch & Co.
The sooner the better.
I hope Dems on twitter calls them the liars with facts that they are
What the Tea Party don’t want to get out there and carry those nasty racists signs they love to carry before.
Picked this up from one of my friends at OFA.
Exclusive: Top Wisconsin Dems increasingly worried that GOP will protect Scott Walker from recall
By Greg Sargent
Top Democrats in Wisconsin are increasingly worried that Republicans will be able to prevent Governor Scott Walker from recall by engineering a situation in which the election to recall and replace him takes place on the same day as the Wisconsin GOP 2012 presidential primary, when GOP turnout is at a maximum, I’m told.
I could be wrong, but I thought Walker had to be in office a full year before recall efforts could be taken up against him. The earliest I read they could be started would be a year from election day 2010, so early November. So the GOP will have to collect all their signatures during the frigid Wisconsin winter. The effort would need to collect 540,000 signatures in a 60 day window. So assuming I am right and November is the earliest they can start collecting, they’d have to collect 540K signatures between November 2nd and January 2nd (give or take). It seems like a lot of work to do when the date would be far from guaranteed.
The GAB seems pretty fair – assuming they’d be the ones deciding on the date, and I can’t imagine how having an election on the same day as the GOP Presidential Primary would be seen as remotely fair. And Feingold never ran a muckthrowing campaign because he said the “Wisconsin nice” personality of the State would reject it. The GOP seems full of trickery.
Ezra is sitting in for Martin Bashir. I think he’s the next MSNBC host. Might not be a bad deal. Move out Cenk and Ed and put in Rev. Al and Ezra.
Graph for presidential fundraising!
This was fascinating, Jovie, not just for the dollar amounts but for the contrast in percentage of small-dollar donations over all. The President wins hands down in both categories. Who wants to argue about a loss of support now?
But, but, but…
Rahm does a fundraiser for the president in Thursday. Rahm is very loyal to the president.
Here is the link!
Thanks Jovie. Awesome!!! Great work Mayor Rahm “Rambo” Emannuel.
It’s A Myth That 47% Of Americans Pay No Taxes, In Truth 86% Pay Taxes
A favorite talking point used by conservatives to justify giving more tax breaks to the wealthy is that 50% of Americans pay no taxes. The truth is that 86% of Americans pay taxes.
Thanks Doris I tweeted that
Michelle obama week ahead, swing state events!
Here is the explanation of cut cap and balance- a Trojan horse to get rid of Medicare:
Benen adds his 2 cents:
They are wasting a whole week on this tripe.
They want to run on it, they are afraid of club for growth who just ordered them not to raise the debt limit!
And btw: if we dont raise the debt limit the hcr law and the EPA are dead.
Now you see why they are holding firm?
Hey guys early heads up: Elizabeth Warren is going to be on The Rachel Maddow Show tonight at 9pm EST/ 8pm CST. It’d be interesting to watch.
Ok…just for tonite I will relax my own rules about not watching Maddow and watch that segment. Thanks for the heads up utaustin!
Thanks for the heads up. I am heading out to a picnic and now can DVR. I don’t listen anymore will make an exception tonight..
I will make an exception tonight! I didn’t get over her lie and she didn’t even corrected it, she made it worst after.
But, I’m very curious to see how that interview will go so I’ll watch.
Thanks for the heads up!
Yes, I will be breaking my rules but just for tonight. The thing is, I don’t recall Rachel being particularly rabid on this specific issue – maybe she was and I just don’t recall. But she has pissed me off about so many things recently that it’s all a blur. So I’m curious to see how that interview goes, and how the PL treats it if it doesn’t suit their narrative.
Hey UT! Love EW and know she will make a wonderful case tonight for her choice so I’m sure she’ll do fine. Can’t bring myself to watch the Maddcow, not even for Elizabeth.
Congressman Chris Van Hollen joins MSNBC’s Thomas Roberts on July 18, 2011 to discuss the House GOP’s so called “Balanced Budget Amendment” proposal, which is designed to make it easier to reduce the deficit by slashing Medicare benefits rather than by closing tax loopholes for private jets.
I’m watching PBO and MO’s appearance on the Oprah Winfrey show. It’s a repeat but it’s a goodie. Oh the love between PBO and MO is delightful.
Pat-The-Hack stinking up the air on Tweety’s show. Gross
Tweety called Pat out. Good.
Oh yeah I saw that. Chris is on point today. Can’t wait for Rev Al to come on after Hardball. Woot woot!
Good to know that he and his ilk can’t come out and just spout untruths and get away with them.
Just took out Norquist.
Heads up: I ventured into Huffington Post and found this:
“Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” will have a special guest.
This week, First Lady Michelle Obama will help build a home in Fayetteville, N.C. for homeless female veterans, according to the Associated Press.
The home will provide shelter for the women of the Steps N Stages Jubilee House, started by 15-year Navy veteran Barbara Marshall.
“This would allow us to get our home in a much better condition so that the women we do have housed here can be living in a house that truly represents how much we appreciate their service to our nation.”
Several families will be able to live in the new house, which will also feature a resource center.
Extreme Makeover is a show that airs on sundays on ABC.
Hey utaustinliberal! Thanks for your comment in the other article, thanks for defending me! I really appreciate it. If the majority of americans are frightened with the prospect of another extremist in the WH, one that will make Georges Bush look like a moderate, how do you think Canadians feels? And the rest of the world……it’s the same thing……….scary!
A major power run by far right extremists will have a global impact and the world is watching, very nervous.
We’re all in this together.
And Mae who love our CIC, wherever you are, I accept your apologies.
Here’s a link from USA Today: Obama appearing on ‘Extreme Makeover’: http://content.usatoday.com/communities/entertainment/post/2011/07/obama-appearing-on-extreme-makeover/1
–Murdoch Aides Long Tried to Blunt Scandal Over Hacking–
…..”Interviews with dozens of current and former News Corporation employees and others involved in the multiple hacking inquiries provide an inside view of how a small group of executives pursued strategies for years that had the effect of obscuring the extent of wrongdoing in the newsroom of Britain’s best-selling tabloid. And once the hacking scandal escalated, they scrambled in vain to quarantine the damage.
Evidence indicating that The News of the World paid police for information was not handed over to the authorities for four years. Its parent company paid hefty sums to those who threatened legal action, on condition of silence.”
How many clowns can the GOP clown car hold? Apparently not enough…enter this guy
It’s getting quite crammed in there. But still got at least two more to go, the woman from wasilla and the Texas two-step star.
Oh my goodness, we’ve still got Rev. Al. YAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY!!!
Hay Rev. Al is on again at 6pm. Do you think Uyger is gone? I hope.
I hope he’s gone too! I sent MSNBC an email today stating that if they were smart they’d get rid of him and keep Rev. Al.
They’re saying that this guy’s death is not suspicious, but I don’t believe it. He crossed powerful people and now that the Murdock empire is crumbling, (including the resignation of the head of Scotland Yard) it looks like scores are being settled.
Who knew Rev Al was a conservative I may as well come out of the closet to declare am a conservative.
I want to conserve Women rights to choose.
I want to conserve that all men are created EQUAL.
Hahaha. When he said I am a conservative, I burst out laughing because I knew he was joking. He then said I am a conservative because I want to conserve voting rights for all. I am a conservative because I want to conserve education for all. Love love love Rev Al.
