    more from TPM on Charlie Crist switching to Dems.

    Charlie registers as Dem at White House Christmas party From the Tampa Bay Times …
    He did so during a Christmas reception at the White House, where President Obama greeted the news with a fist bump for the man who had a higher profile campaigning for Obama’s reelection this year than any Florida Democrat.

      from prev thread:

      Did Charlie Crist really JUST announce he’s switching to Dem party on twitter? Or did I miss an announcement? I’ve had a lot going on this week, but I woulda remembered this I think.

      yep he announced via twitter

      theres’s a pic with his paperwork I guess

    Hey Chips, the tweet about Ann Romney’s inaugural ball gown….was that a real tweet from Mark Knoller? If so…then OMFG….what a rightwing nut.

    • 36 carolyn
      December 8, 2012 at 12:19 am

      Since I’m not on twitter…..what was said about Ann and the inaugural ball gown? That is too intriguing not to follow up on…..??? genuine info or some snark?????

      • 37 hopefruit2
        December 8, 2012 at 12:38 am

        It’s on the video…although I don’t think he actually tweeted that, but he may have been thinking, hoping and praying about Ann’s inaugural gown! :) :)

    • December 8, 2012 at 12:29 am

      So she had her gown picked out?? Hubris.

    • 39 hopefruit2
      December 8, 2012 at 12:39 am

    Mclaren (a nutso firebagger at BJ) calling a basketball game…

    Chalmers takes the ball upcourt – that’s incredibly stupid, he’s not a scorer
    He passes to Wade – Basketball 101: You can’t score if you don’t put the ball in the hoop, all this passing bullshit is pure cowardice.
    Wade in traffic, passes back out to Haslem – this is amateur hour, the hoop is that way morons!! All the money these guys get and they are too afraid to do the job
    Back to Wade -he’s back out to the line and meanwhile that fool James is running around without the ball – you need the ball to score idiot.
    Wade to James, dunk. Finally they listened to us.

    Interesting rumor:

    Bill Clinton: US ambassador to Ireland? Rumors catch fire.
    Bill Clinton loves Ireland, and Ireland loves him, but fresh Beltway rumors are suggesting that he might even like to be the US ambassador to the Emerald Isle. Is Dublin big enough for Bill?

    Alright, amk, this one’s for you!

    A husband and wife are shopping in their local supermarket.
    The husband picks up a case of Budweiser and puts it in their cart.

    “What do you think you’re doing?” asks the wife.

    “They’re on sale, only $10 for 24 cans” he replies.

    “Put them back, we can’t afford them” demands the wife, and so they carry on shopping.

    A few aisles further on along the woman picks up a $20 jar of face cream and puts it in the basket.

    “What do you think you’re doing?” asks the husband.

    “It’s my face cream. It makes me look beautiful,” replies the wife.

    Her husband retorts: “So does 24 cans of Budweiser and it’s half the price.”

    That’s him on Aisle 5 – he never knew what hit him…

      I don’t mean to be a downer, but I’m holding my judgement on Crist. He refused to agree to caucus with Democrats during his Senate run, even though Democrats sided with him instead of an actual Democrat, Meek. He hasn’t expressed any Democratic views that are different from the blue dogs obstructing progress. And his move seems very calculating to me. Many of the same Democrats who were ready to crown Chris Christie the presumptive nominee for 2016 after he said a few flattering words over Superstorm Sandy are now feeling burned when he’s letting his true colors shine through. Many of the same people now fawning over Crist will be howling about his blue dog votes in a year or so… These Republicans – they don’t change their stripes that easily.

        December 8, 2012 at 7:02 am

        theo, you can hold it. I live here. The things that make Christ a better shot for Senate in 2016…he vowed to keep drilling off of our coast. He is still a small tax guy and this state fell apart before the rest of the country in 2007. It was the overblown housing market. Homes here sell for over 1 million because of the beach. The same home would sell for $100,000 anywhere else.

        My thoughts against him are his views on LGTB issues. He is still a science guy though.

          When is comes to candidates there are no such thing as purity…i think this what gets the TP/Repubs and PL in trouble…there is no room for compromise…

          the Repubs may have lost the race but they are very much alive…they will regroup to fight again…for us on the other side we must not rest on our victories…we must build allies where we can…

          here in PA because of redistricting…13 out of 18 Congressional seats are Rs…yet Pa went strong for the President..

          In 2010…there was a Republican Takeover…they control the state house..

          .the attempt at voter suppression was thwarted but not defeated…the primaries are just 5 mos away…and now the same forces that brought us the Voter Suppression Law want to change how electoral votes are awarded…if that had been place…the President could have won the popular vote but lost the state….

          The Repubs cannot win…so they cheat…and steal…our votes…our voices.

          we have to find a way to forge new alliances to make sure that votes matter…our voices are heard…

Unfortunately, I am technologically challenged and I have no teenagers in my home who can show me how to download this keeper to my computer. Will someone tell me, in simple terms, how to do this? Thanks so much. I will check back later in the day when more people are up. Off to enjoy this beautiful again and again.

      Where are my manners, geesh! Chips you have outdone yourself (which is an almost impossible feat). I am still so thankful, inspired, vindicated, and so much more that I can hardly express as a result of PBO’s/our victory. Sometimes I am still overwhelmed with how we prevailed with so much against us (big money, voter suppression, the collaboration of the media with the repiubs. etc). This video somehow, just fills me up. Thanks also to Dudette for her inspiration.

      The Media will bury this, now the Republucans are really prolong up chemical weapons in Syria.
      Just who are they going to fire these chemical weapons at?
      They are mobs of People, sporadically attacking Assads forces, Gorilla Warfare.
      Does Assad fire at it’s own People to kill the bad Guys?
      This is very complicated, but as long as the MSM takes it’s talking points from the Republucans, we get a war drum beat every time!

        From what I understand Gutierrez is not well-respected or liked in the broader Latino community. Like his counterparts Tavis and West, he’s another poser and media whore, and does not speak for the community that he claims to represent.

    • 106 anniebella
      December 8, 2012 at 10:02 am

      Luis Guittierez, I don’t care for him to much. I feel like when he what attention, he opens his big mouth. What does he think the President can wave a magic wand and poof, Immigration reform will be. How about giving the President time, there are other things which might be alittle more pressing right now, like keeping middle class taxes from going up.

      • December 8, 2012 at 10:10 am

        FYI- did you know everybody was paying those taxes under Clinton, and the World did not end.
        But, as you say, if he gets you all middle class tax cuts, the math days he will have to cut entitlements.
        We can’t have normal entitlement spending and tax cuts and balance the books, not with a trillion dollar deficit annually.

    I have been looking for Jimmy Fallon’s parody of James Taylor at the DNC. Every video I find says that it is private. Can anyone help me find one that I can play. There is one on this blog a little after the convention but I cannot seem to find it. Thank you in advance.
