Easter break!

The Fix is taking today and tomorrow off as we seek to fight off a cold that Fix Jr. is trying to pass on and prepare for the little man's second Easter. (And, yes, to begin plotting how we can win the 2011 Peeps Diorama contest.)

We'll be back on Monday.

@jake,

Your defense is that EVEN if you are a racist, you can hide within the rules of the blog and spew racist rhetoric, knowing that no one can even place the label racist on you.

You aren't a member of my church are you? I would have to tell you, if you were, that you need to get brushed up on the following the spirit, not just the letter, of the Law.

I don't care if they call it censorship or tiers or whatever, The blog needs moderation.  We have a small number of posters who only show up to disrupt (37th) or get their hypertrophied need for attention met (JakeD) and one who only comes to express his assorted hates of other bloggers and public figures (zouk under many monikers).  The others like armpeg are just drive-bys, sick though they are.  It's the aforementioned three who do the most to make the blog sickening or impossible.

The idea that they're expressing some political position by spamming the place is the sort of hand-wringing starry-eyed nonsense that leads to forums being shut down.  To hell with worrying about being fair .. the fact that all the spammers are Republicans (shut up Jake you're one too) isn't a coincidence but it in no way means that special consideration needs be paid to trolls.

That all said, I have my doubts.  I don't think the post can afford to pay moderators and I don't thin they're going to get a quality job.  Even now CC seems preoccupied with "name calling" and "personal attacks" when it's clear that those are not the real problems here.

Let me get this straight--

The Obama people (parties of the first part) have ganged up on the anti-Obama people (parties of the second part) and have prevented the seconds from posting. Somehow the firsts are being paid by someone. Further, the firsts are on the blog in shifts, 24/7/52. The poor seconds, who have views of tremendous insight and with only constructive intent, have been prevented somehow from expressing their views on this blog.

Is this a fair summary of the view of the seconds, who for some strange and unfathomable reason, have been allowed to post this complaint.

Just so we all know, in great specificity, the nature of the seconds complaints, would you favor us with the answers to these questions:

Who is paying the firsts?
How much are the firsts being paid?
Who are the firsts?
Who among the firsts is on night duty, say 12-7 am, ET?
How are the seconds comments being blocked? Towers? Or brain waves? Both?

The problem is the Obama people have ganged up on other posters.


This started during the Obama campaign - when they hired people to sit and post by shifts - and they were harassing every poster on the internet - in an attempt to intimidate people into NOT posting opinions which DID NOT AGREE WITH OBAMA.

Obviously this kind of behavior is not desirable.


However - it does get a response. And it sets a tone.

Great take in HuffPo from Barbra ("People Who Need People") Streisand:

"The American people are starting to resent the "politics of no" and the Republicans are quickly devolving into the "party of no tolerance." Recently, leading intellectual and former Bush White House aide, David Frum, was fired from his fellowship at the conservative-leaning think tank, American Enterprise Institute, after he was critical of the Republican strategy against President Obama's health-care overhaul. Bruce Bartlett, who was also fired by a right wing think tank in 2005 for writing a book critical of George W. Bush's policies, commented that "rigid conformity is being enforced, no dissent is allowed.""

First, he took his children to Rev. Wright's church for YEARS - if that is not a red flag, nothing is.

Second, he went around the country talking up so much snake oil - any reasonable person had to know he was LYING.

I will tell you again, OBAMA CAMPAIGNED ON A PLATFORM OF BIPARTISANSHIP - WHICH MEANS HE WAS COMMITTING HIMSELF TO CENTRIST POLICIES.

This is the central lie of Obama.

This point will go down as Obama's definition - lie to the country for two years, then sharply turn left and jam through the BIGGEST TAX INCREASE IN AMERICAN HISTORY.

The American People do not take kindly to this lying treacherous behavior.


So, YOU have to be high or completely drunk to believe that Obama deserves "net positive coverage."

I have no idea where you think you are coming from with these silly statements - no one wants your garbage anymore.

Then, when there is behavior like mocking and harassment of other posters, like the Obama campaign did for practically every hour of every day in 2008, it reflects DIRECTLY ON THE CANDIDATE AND CAMPAIGN.

Unfortunately that IS the prior practice.

A previous Post ombudsman once famously measured alleged bias in the paper's coverage of BHO by literally counting the number of favorable and unfavorable articles about 44.

Because the favorable ones outnumbered the unfavorable, she laughably concluded, as I recall it, the Post was biased in favor of BHO. She did not consider the possibility BHO was doing a good job and thus deserved the net positive coverage.

The first thing is you can not harass other posters anymore - that is going to cut out over half the bad postings on here in one sweep.

Next, for all the Obama people, meaning DNC, OFA and et al - all that is going to have to be disclosed, so those people are going to have to be on their best behavior - like they might have to be polite.

My guess is the Obama people started a great deal of the trouble on here - so if they are tamed, the board will improve quickly.


The next thing might be to require all postings to have some substance -


Which means that postings which are primarily directed at other posters will be deleted - so substance and constructive conversations - beyond that I don't believe that much content will be taken out based on objectionable content - a great number of things will be ALLOWED.

A 'CASTE SYSTEM' FOR BLOG COMMENTS:

BAD POLICY THAT PLAYS INTO THE HANDS OF A COVERT GOVERNMENT CENSORSHIP REGIME TO WHICH WA-PO IS OBLIVIOUS.

• WaPo enables "man in the middle" attacks on Amercans "targeted" by rogues in government for their political views.

In my several articles about the U.S. government's covert, targeted censorship of internet political speech...

http://nowpublic.com/world/how-u-s-spy-ops-censor-web-political-speech OR NowPublic.com/scrivener

... this journalist maintains that moderation of blogs by mainstream media sites is used by warrantless surveillance operatives as "cover" for unconstitutional censorship -- via "spoofed" or faked web pages to which "targeted individuals" are re-directed in real-time by sophisticated (but somewhat transparent) software "filtering" protocols.

The WaPo ombudsman obviously has not read my articles, or has failed to heed the message. (Perhaps my articles are being "black holed" by a censorship regime apparently based out of the nation's 70-some Homeland "multi-agency" fusion centers?)

The notion of "trusted" blog commentators smacks of media elitism. Having been a member of mainstream media for better than three decades, I find such a "tiered" approach to be anti-democratic, a caste system that plays into the hands of covert government censorship. Have secret government agents been flashing badges around the WaPo office?

Since I have revealed my identity and background all over the net, I don't mind posting with my real name. But whistle-blowers certainly would object to being relegated to the back of the blog comment bus because of their reticence to reveal themselves.

I hope WaPo reconsiders going the route of The New York Times -- where the preponderance of evidence shows that my attempted postings have been censored by government operatives who, for six years, have hijacked my internet account to effect what the spooks refer to as a "man in the middle" attack.

Mr. Alexander and WaPo editors, please don't enable the monkey in the middle!

But my sense is the policy is WAY broader than that and the effect will be to sanitize the comments so only the most vanilla and meaningless make it through to "first tier" publication.

Reading between the lines, we think it's the Post writers/reporters' sensitivity to any criticism from the readership that is driving this censorship policy, nothing else.

Posted by: broadwayjoe | April 4, 2010 7:47 PM | Report abuse

Just caught up with the ombudsman column announcing the Post's upcoming policy of censoring all comments.

As I understand it, the only comments that most folks will normally see are those from the first tier of "good guys," as determined by "someone," and those who give their real names. Huh???

While the main excuse for the censoring is commenters' rudeness towards people who are quoted in Post articles, you get the impression that justification is totally bogus.

It's really that the Post reporters/writers don't want any accountability to the readership. So they can write anything they want, e.g., Dems in trouble (even though more GOPers are retiring than GOPers), but the readership can't call them on falsehoods or bogus assertions.

Sad.

yeah, BB, I read the column. I think it's pretty good. I think most people just want a way to avoid the trolls. Banning them is one way, but another is to just banish them to their own tier. Let the zooks of the world go and tell themselves how smart and rich they are.

Looking forward to it.

2. Leave the sticker in the window, just to piss off liberals.
3. Put a cow catcher on the front in case any small helpless animals dare dart in front.
4. Demand to have it repainted. then after it is finished, make them put it back.
5.park in handicapped zones and never pay the fine.
6. always use high test and burn as much as possible by revving it at the lights and flooring it at every green.
7. change the oil on a bridge over the Chesapeake bay, preferably right near a protected wetland with spawning fish.
8.never let a car that costs less than 80K in when heavy traffic is present. speed up to cut them off.
9. grow my hair long and let it blow in the breeze. Laugh at all the baldies who shave to try and hide it.
10. let the air out of any tires found on a Prius.
11. always valet park and tip big.
12. Smoke cigars at the gay juice bar.
13. wear Italian custom suits and shoes only. shirts from hong Kong.
14. Keep a second supercar at the boat for use there only.

You have to give Democrats this much — they are no more wasteful with our money than they are with their own. Similarly, slippery RINO David Frum doesn't just stab conservatives in the back; he has also knifed the moonbats he usually enables by reporting on the DNC's wasteful expenditures:

Late last year, Democrats partied it up at D.C.'s 'Josephine', when they dropped $5,850. The nightclub comes complete with two stripper poles and, according to one reviewer, a "skimpily clothed go-go dancer to feast your eyes on."
In just the first two months of this year, the DNC spent half a million dollars on catering, parties, lodging and limos. This includes a staggering $278,478.12 on Hilton hotels; $143,286 on catering from Susan Gage Caterers and Avalon Caterers; $36,956 on lodging at the Mandarin Oriental in Washington, D.C.; an $11,154 event at the Kennedy Center; and about $1,500 in limo services.
The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee spent $14,098 on car service last year. Meanwhile, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee spent $48,270.25 on charter flights and limousines. Democrats even spent $36,874.39 to bring in Austrian celebrity chef Wolfgang Puck three times last year.
Put perhaps the most questionable expense was the DNC's use of the trappings of the White House for partisan purposes: $232,436.81 spent on White House helicopters and White House In-flight Services since August of last year. The DNC's White House helicopter expenditures have been unexamined until now because, unlike the RNC, the DNC files some of their travel expenses under a different Federal Elections Commission ID than their other expenses.
What about Michael Steele, some might ask. But Republicans will eventually get rid of the hapless Steele, special skin color notwithstanding. With Democrats, reckless extravagance with the money entrusted to them is a defining feature.

What do we think of the moonbats? aka stooges:

[Monday] was Keith Olbermann's official return to MSNBC after being away for more than a month. And with the March ratings period now complete (it ended Sunday), Olbermann's substitute host, Lawrence O'Donnell, helped give "Countdown" its best month of the quarter, but still down — 21% — compared to March '09.
O'Donnell is awful, but better than Olbie. The story ran under this hilarious headline:

Despite Olbermann Being Out, March is Best Month for 'Countdown' This Quarter
Despite? How about this headline:

Personal swipes aside, 37th, your beef appears to be with moderation. It would be hard to claim that I'm deceptive given that (a) the paragraphs were quoted completely, (b) there are length limits to a post, and (c) a link was provided.

@DDAWD - Moderation isn't that difficult to implement. True/Slant has a nice feature in that comments can be called out. Find someone who is interested in the blog and doesn't engage in tactical fights and give him or her an option to take some kind of action. The conversation can still be lively and I suspect that when faced with being put in a lonely echo chamber or modifying behavior, individuals on the bubble will modify their behavior.

True to Mr. Fairlington's bias toward deceptive posting, it appears that his comment did NOT include the entire story - the article he cites ALSO contains the following paragraph:

For every noxious comment, many more are astute and stimulating. Anonymity provides necessary protection for serious commenters whose jobs or personal circumstances preclude identifying themselves. And even belligerent anonymous comments often reflect genuine passion that should be heard.

A COMMENT ON COMMENTS

---

The Ombudsman's column today indicates that the Post is moving towards a moderated comments section. I quote the most relevant section and have a link below:

[[[The solution is in moderating -- not limiting -- comments. In a few months, The Post will implement a system that should help. It's still being developed, but Straus said the broad outlines envision commenters being assigned to different "tiers" based on their past behavior and other factors. Those with a track record of staying within the guidelines, and those providing their real names, will likely be considered "trusted commenters." Repeat violators or discourteous agitators will be grouped elsewhere or blocked outright. Comments of first-timers will be screened by a human being. When visitors click to read story comments, only those from the "trusted" group will appear. If they want to see inflammatory or off-topic comments from "trolls," they'll need to click to access a different "tier."]]]

In truth, I'd be happy to see the end of personal attacks amongst the Fixistas. I don't care if someone is posting from their mother's basement or using the Wifi access in 1st class. Or the gender, age, race and species of their partner. In spite of some deeply aggravating behavior, this is an interesting place to hang out. The tech websites that I frequent (MacWorld is a good example) have moderation and interesting converations in spite of it.

Oh, and Happy Easter to all.

Buh-Bye

Nothing is more important to the American People right now than getting the economy going again.


This simple concept is apparently too difficult for Obama to understand. Even for Obama, who is supposed to be so intelligent.


The Washington Post, in its 44 blog, tells of a defining moment for Obama - a woman asks him why, with the economy the way it is, why Obama has to OVER-TAX the country in his health care program.

Obama goes off on a rambling 17 minute answer which has little to do with the actual question.

The economy does NOT need new taxes right now. New taxes take this country in the WRONG DIRECTION. Apparently, Obama has been DETERMINED FOR THE ENTIRE YEAR TO ADD NEW TAXES ONTO THE AMERICAN ECONOMY - REGARDLESS OF HOW BAD THE ECONOMY IS.

Obama has made a CONSCIOUS DECISION to IGNORE THE AMERICAN PEOPLE -


Obama has chosen NEW TAXES OVER IMPROVING THE ECONOMY.

Obama made this clear when he spoke to Congress in September - Obama regarded the economic difficulties as something to be ignored, because Obama had other things he wanted to do - and a focus on the economy would distract Obama's agenda.


Now the economy is going to be BURDENED WITH OBAMA'S TAXES while it struggles to recover.

Obama is not going to allow a recession to get in the way of his opportunity to pass massive new taxes.


AND Obama is dumping MASSIVE UNFUNDED MANDATES ON THE STATE GOVERNMENTS - which are going to have to tax in order to fund Obama's mandates.

Because of this POLICY DIFFERENCE, apparently Obama and the democrats want to call MILLIONS OF PEOPLE RACIST -


And Obama and the democrats want to SMEAR MILLIONS OF PEOPLE WITH FALSE CHARGES OF RACISM.


And they will float stories about how right-wing militias are suddenly a threat.

Well NONE OF THAT is going to change the facts :


1) Obama LIED TO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE WHEN HE MADE SPEECH AFTER SPEECH ALL AROUND THE COUNTRY LEADING PEOPLE TO BELIEVE HE WOULD PURSUE CENTRIST POLICIES.


2) Obama has INSISTED ON PASSING MASSIVE TAXES AND CREATING MASSIVE NEW GOVERNMENT PROGRAMS WHICH THE COUNTRY DOES NOT WANT.


3) The ECONOMY IS THE MOST IMPORTANT THING RIGHT NOW - AND OBAMA'S HEALTH CARE TAXES ARE THE WORSE THING FOR THE ECONOMY RIGHT NOW.

Those are the facts - calling anyone a racist isn't going to change those facts.


Even if you throw in a little bit of militia fear-mongering.

In O-Nation, many have been waiting for the moment when BHO would finally Let Obama be Obama. The great Frank Rich of the NY Times says that moment may have arrived:

"NOT since Clark Kent changed in a phone booth has there been an instant image makeover to match Barack Obama’s in the aftermath of his health care victory. “He went from Jimmy Carter to F.D.R. in just a fortnight,” said one of the “Game Change” authors, Mark Halperin, on MSNBC. “Look at the steam in the man’s stride!” exclaimed Chris Matthews. “Is it just me, or does Barack Obama seem different since health care passed?” wrote Peter Beinart in The Daily Beast, which, like The Financial Times, ran an illustration portraying the gangly president as a newly bulked-up Superman.

What a difference winning makes — especially in America. Whatever did (or didn’t) get into Obama’s Wheaties, this much is certain: No one is talking about the clout of Scott Brown or Rahm Emanuel any more."

http://www.nytimes.com/2010/04/04/opinion/04rich.html?hp
____________

No more turning the other cheek. No more Jackie Robinson or Rope-A-Dope. No more begging for bipartisan votes from two senators who represent a state with 14 people. No more pretending the tea bag wing of the GOP is anything but a bunch of ignorant, ultra violent, n-word sign-carrying white nationalist thugs. No more letting Faux News's lineup of (MO) bigoted fools tee-up four or five fake controversies, false narratives, and outright lies every single week without any aggressive response from the White House. No more apologizing to rogue cops (IMO) after they (allegedly) jack up your lifelong Harvard pals for no good reason (allegedly).

Because of this POLICY DIFFERENCE, apparently Obama and the democrats want to call MILLIONS OF PEOPLE RACIST -


And Obama and the democrats want to SMEAR MILLIONS OF PEOPLE WITH FALSE CHARGES OF RACISM.

And they will float stories about how right-wing militias are suddenly a threat.


Well NONE OF THAT is going to change the facts :


1) Obama LIED TO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE WHEN HE MADE SPEECH AFTER SPEECH ALL AROUND THE COUNTRY LEADING PEOPLE TO BELIEVE HE WOULD PURSUE CENTRIST POLICIES.


2) Obama has INSISTED ON PASSING MASSIVE TAXES AND CREATING MASSIVE NEW GOVERNMENT PROGRAMS WHICH THE COUNTRY DOES NOT WANT.

3) The ECONOMY IS THE MOST IMPORTANT THING RIGHT NOW - AND OBAMA'S HEALTH CARE TAXES ARE THE WORSE THING FOR THE ECONOMY RIGHT NOW.


Those are the facts - calling anyone a racist isn't going to change those facts.


Even if you throw in a little bit of militia fear-mongering.

There is a posting on the other thread - the poster was saying that Obama fooled a great number of people in 2008 into thinking he was a moderate.

Yea, that is just about what happened.

Obama went around the country for years telling eveyone how he wanted BIPARTISANSHIP - THAT HE WAS GOING TO BE POST-PARTISAN. This meant that Obama would pursue CENTRIST POLICIES - there is no way around that.

That turned out to be a lie.

That was a commitment Obama MADE TO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE. Just because the democrats say the Republicans refused to negotiate this day or that day - NONE OF THAT RELEASES OBAMA FROM HIS COMMITMENT TO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE.

I doubt that the tactics of Obama and democrats are what Martin Luther King had in mind when he outlined his vision for America.

Martin Luther King would not be happy with Obama - not even close.

It is not about the color of your skin, but the content of your character, and Obama is sorely lacking in that department.

Gladly let's talk about the health care plan - and how Obama is going to HURT THE ECONOMY.

Sadly, Obama caught himself in an ACCOUNTING TRICK.

In order to say that the health care plan was "paid for" - Obama had to put 7 years of benefits up against 10 years of taxes.

SO THE TAXES KICK IN RIGHT NOW.


While the big spending doesn't start for 4 years. That may have seemed clever before - but why are the democrats taxing everyone again ????

Obama's taxes are going to hurt the economy.

There has to be a way to get rid of Obama's taxes - maybe if the Supreme Court declares the whole health care program as lying outside of "interstate commerce" - and the taxes get thrown out with everything else.

The Court could decide just to throw out parts of the bill.

The health care program is already a mish-mash - we basically have Harry Reid's negotiating position "fixed up" at various budgetary points -


If the courts start to pick out parts - then the Congress de-funds other parts - we could have a real mess on our hands.


You do realize that this bill was pretty much thrown together in a "whatever we can ram through Congress mode" ???

IN CHICAGO, OBAMA'S HOME TOWN this is what happened:

Early Friday, while police were investigating a shooting in which four people were wounded, gunfire broke out again in the same block, causing bystanders to scurry for cover. Two more people were wounded.

The fact that officers were on the scene for the second shooting "shows a complete, brazen lack of respect of authority,"

THEN ----

While the Police were holding a PRESS CONFERENCE, there was ANOTHER SHOOTING A FEW BLOCKS AWAY.

StreetCorner, if you look at violent crime statistics you will find that that blacks, who are indeed overrepresented, are still a MINORITY [about 28%] of perps.

You will note that black VICTIMS are equally overrepresented, but still a minority.

You will see that blacks are a majority of the hate crime victims. Whites are the LARGE majority of the hate crime perps.

You will see that about 90% of solved homicides are committed by males. It would make more sense to try to analogize the danger of far right wing anarchists to the danger posed by males, in general. Further, violence is a characteristic of younger male perps. Perhaps we should profile males between the ages of 12 and 30. But you chose to make a racial comparison, ostensibly between "white anarchists" and "black violent perps". You chose to see the 28% of violent crimes committed by blacks as politically motivated while the 72% committed by whites you chose to ignore.

You are being profoundly wrong-headed, StreetCorner.
The equivalence you draw between violent far right wing white anarchists and inner city crime is, by the numbers, an invidious and false comparison. You have made it often enough that my respectfully requesting that you cease making it now is not in any way disrespectful of your right to voice your opinion.

this is pretty funny:

'A NEW KIND OF MEDIA 'INTERVIEW'.... Josh Marshall noted last night, "It looks like Fox [News] has created the perfect interview show vehicle for Sarah Palin. An interview show based around her interviews with people she's never interviewed."

I thought he might be kidding. He wasn't.

Hours after LL Cool J complained that Fox News was recycling an old interview with him for a new program hosted by Sarah Palin, representatives for the country musician Toby Keith, who was also listed as a guest for the show, made a similar charge against the cable channel.

In a telephone interview on Wednesday, Elaine Schock, a publicist for Mr. Keith said: "I have no idea what interview they are using. Toby's talked to Fox a number of times, and I had no idea that this was going to be on Sarah Palin's special. Fox has never contacted me -- not now, not when they were putting this together, not at all. I have no idea what they're using."

It's almost farcical. Fox News announced that it would air a show called "Real American Stories" tonight, hosted by former half-term governor Sarah Palin. Promotional work for the program seems to have been deliberately misleading -- "several accounts" of the show "reported that Ms. Palin herself would be talking to the guests in the show."

A Fox News website, for example, said Palin "will kick off her new Fox News series with one of the most diverse guest lineups in memory.... The three very different guests will speak to Palin for her inaugural episode of 'American Stories ' on April 1st."

Except, they didn't "speak to Palin" at all. Fox News is taking old interview footage, and just repackaging it. Sarah Palin's guest list is made up of people who've never met Sarah Palin.'

A rare victory for common sense...

'Yesterday, Kansas Attorney General Steve Six announced that his office would not be joining other states’ attorneys general in suing the federal government on the allegation that the new health care law is unconstitutional. From his statement:

The attorney general’s office has completed its legal review of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. Based on that extensive analysis, I do not believe that Kansas can successfully challenge the law. Our review did not reveal any constitutional defects, and thus it would not be legally or fiscally responsible to pursue this litigation. [...]

Legal precedent demonstrates that throughout our nation’s history, the U.S. Supreme Court has been reluctant to overturn legislative acts unless a clear and direct constitutional violation is shown. Article I, section 8 of the U.S. Constitution expressly gives Congress the power to legislate on matters affecting interstate commerce. The Supremacy Clause makes these laws supreme, regardless of any state laws or state constitutional provisions to the contrary. No serious argument may be advanced that the healthcare industry and all those who participate in it — including doctors, nurses, patients and insurers — are not part of interstate commerce. [...]

I do not believe it is in the best interest of Kansas to divert resources from these vital legal matters to pursue a lawsuit driven by political differences and policy debates, a lawsuit that I believe has little to no chance of success and will squander scarce resources in a time of severe budget shortfalls.'

All modern religious narratives are based on more ancient narratives, with details changed to suit the mores and customs at the time they are told.

It is no coincidence that the story of Christ's resurrection occurs around the spring equinox, the ancient traditional celebration of fertility, rebirth and the renewal of life. Hence the bunnies and easter eggs.

The fact of the matter is that for the democrats to start talking about an "uptick in right-wing violence" - it is a complete laugh. Look in any major newspaper and there are incidents of black violence every week of every year.

Yet - without an incident AT ALL of right wing violence, this is the storyline of the democrats.

Well to the democrats who are talking about militias and right-wing violence - go to your INNER CITIES - GO TO THE BLACK COMMUNITIES - AND WORK ON THE VIOLENCE THERE -

And stop bothering people with your ridiculous talking points.

Right NOW THE OBAMA TAXES ARE PLACING A DRAG ON HIRING IN THE COUNTRY - AND OBAMA IS PROLONGING THE RECESSION - THAT IS THE REAL DAMAGE BEING DONE TO THE COUNTRY.

mark_in_Austin:

In hindsight, the crucifixion is "good" because Christ died for our sins on Friday, we do not gain eternal life because of what happened on Sunday. His final words on the Cross include "it is finished" (the debt is paid, present tense) by His death on Good Friday, not His resurrection on Easter Sunday.

Ddawd - thanks for the "538" link.

Happy Easter.
========================
I in no way mean to be disrespectful to Catholics; I am asking out of curiousity. Forgive any clumsiness in advance, please.

Why is the Friday before Easter called "Good"? The Sunday resurrection was good news to the faithful, but the Friday crucifixion was the worst possible news, at the time. It has been the center of angst ridden drama for millennia. Why is it called "Good Friday"?

Disagree with you on this one, dd.

The original "37" was meaner, yes, but it was his extreme pathology, IMO, the chance to see him go down in some uniquely unhinged hate blast, like Jake's April tantrum, that made him a Hall of Famer. Think Sam Kinison or Lenny Bruce or Artie Lange. The Michelle LaVaughan Obana-obsessed "Dianne72" fit in that category, too.

It was fun for awhile to gape at the original 37's train wrecks. The fake 37 just seems to be retyping RNC and stormfront bigoted junk, no originality.

Leveling False Charges Of Racism IS GOING TO BE THE DEFINING HISTORY OF OBAMA'S PRESIDENCY.

The history books will show how instead of being post-racial, Obama squandered his opportunity to improve race relations - and instead embarked on a campaign of INTIMIDATION AGAINST PEOPLE WHO ARE EXERCISING THEIR FREE SPEECH RIGHTS.


History will be CLEAR about what Obama tried to do during his tenure.

Obama campaigne for YEARS telling everyone how he was going to bring the parties together in Washington.

Instead, all Obama has done is antagonize the parties in Washington - resulting in even WORSE relations between the parties in Washington. Is Obama incompetent ?? Is he just an ego-driven LIAR ??? What is the psychological motivation to do this to our country ???
Is it because he really does hate White America ??? Perhaps Obama will be the subject of graduate papers for years - in the field of psychology.

Continuing the discussion as to whether the Supreme Court will look to United States v. Lopez (1995) to limit the Federal Government's powers to regulate "interstate commerce."


The only case which has really be ruled in this area is really an Antitrust case - one involving fire insurance - and stating that the antitrust laws apply to fire insurance companies.


Then there are labor laws which affect interstate corporations - like cobra and retirement benefits.

Well - do those instances add up to the Federal government having the power to move into the ENTIRE AREA of health care regulations?

Remember, for instance the immigration cases - when a town said that landlords could not rent to illegal aliens - the Courts ruled that the power in that area was with the Federal government, so the States should stay OUT of that area.


So does it follow that the federal government has ALWAYS had power in the area of health care - and the States were always IN ERROR in regulating health care ???


Furthermore, if the Courts do rule that the Federal government has authority over health care, it follows that forever from here out, the States should stay OUT of the area of health care, because it is the domain of the States.

The Constitution has not changed. The States have been regulating health care for over two hundred years. So where is the Federal government getting the authority all of a suddent to regulate health care ???


I have to point out something about the New Deal cases - in the 50 years running up to those cases, the United States went through a vast industrialization of the economy - there was a sense that the economy was fundamentally different than it was 50 or 70 years earlier.


Yes, it can be said that initially in the industrial revolution, the Courts ruled that all sorts of parts of the economy, like manufacturing, were not part of interstate commerce. Yes, but that was initially.


Later, when the economy became fully developed and the full nature of interstate commerce was obvious, then the Courts, which generally lag in time, developed new definitions of what fell under interstate commerce.

The point is that the economy - at least in the area of health care - has not undergone a vast transformation which would justify a re-definition of interstate commerce which would make it obvious that the federal government should regulate the field.

In summary, it just may be possible to find 5 votes on the Supreme Court to strike down the entire health care bill as being an unconstitutional exercise of Federal authority - in an area which is outside of the "traditional" powers of the Federal government - and into the "traditional" powers held by the States.

The Justices just might recommend a Constitutional amendment for those who believe the Federal government should have such sweeping powers.

The United States v. Lopez - there is an opening there to declare Obama's entire health care bill unconstitutional.

Everyone has to remember that the New Deal cases never really set the boundaries of the interstate commerce clause - instead the clause was gradually expanded case-by-case and the boundaries were never set.


In the United States v. Lopez, the Supreme Court said what everyone knew logically: there had to be some boundary between Federal and State powers.

The Court never set the boundary.

The United States v. Lopez set a vague boundary - in that case, it said the Federal government had gone too far - now the question remains to define the boundaries.

Obama could find himself in trouble here - and this would be a final mockery of Obama's claims to be so intelligent, to be a Harvard law review Editor and to be a law professor.


The Court affirmed that there is a boundary between Federal and State powers - and stated that those powers which were traditionally in the domain of the states should stay there.

Health care and safety has always been in the domain of the States. Doctors get their licenses from the States. Historically, health care insurance has been handled by the States.

Mark, I probably would like Duke if I didn't go to UNC. Good school, coach who does things right, super talented teams. Actually, one of my best friends from high school went there. So the hatred is really just in fun.

But they really do look good to win it. The highest seed and have basically cruised to the final. Yeah, they had the easiest road, but they also didn't have the benefit of an upset softened path the way that MSU did in drawing Nor. Iowa and Tenn instead of Kansas and OSU. (although Butler and WVu had tough roads as well) I think Duke's game tomorrow will be the tougher one.

That being said, I wonder if you can still consider Butler a #5 team given that they are playing in their home city. I never know how to rate having home court.

But two years ago, a #2 seeded duke faced a #7 seeded West Virginia in the second round and lost. Here's hoping that history repeats!

8. Steven Anderson: The Phoenix pastor told his congregation last summer to "pray for Barack Obama to die and go to hell." The next day, one of his congregants showed up at an Obama event with an assault rifle and a handgun.*

9. Greg Girard: The Massachusetts software consultant and sometime Tea Party activist was charged in February with stockpiling weapons, and possessing explosive devices including tear gas and pepper ball canisters. His wife told police that he feared Armageddon was imminent, and that martial law would soon be imposed. Girard had recently written online that Sarah Palin is on a "righteous mission from God."

10. Norman LeBoon: This Philadelphia man was charged Monday with threatening to kill Rep. Eric Cantor (R-VA) in a profanity-strewn Youtube video. LeBoon has also posted previous videos making threats against Obama, Nancy Pelosi, and other leaders.

3. James Von Brunn: The 88-year old shot and killed an African-American guard at the Holocaust Museum in Washington DC last June. Von Brunn, who recently died in prison, had long moved in neo-Nazi circles, and in 1981 he tried to hold hostage an employee of the Federal Reserve at gunpoint. In recent writings he had expressed support for Birtherism, and had praised Sarah Palin.

4. Richard Poplawski: This Pittsburgh man allegedly shot and killed three police officers last April, after telling friends he feared that President Obama planned to confiscate weapons. He also had recently expressed alarm about a supposed plan by FEMA to herd people into concentration camps, which he had seen discussed by Glenn Beck on Fox News.

5. John Patrick Bedell: He traveled from California in February, to shoot two Pentagon police officers before being mortally wounded himself. In an online video manifesto posted in 2006, Bedell had railed against the government's ability to "confiscate the resources of their citizens to fund schemes that need only be justified by lies and deception."

6. Joshua Cartwright: This Florida man killed two sheriff's deputies at a gun range last April, before police officers shot him dead. His wife told police he was "severely disturbed" by Obama's election, and "believed that the US government was conspiring against him."

The charges filed this week against nine members of the Hutaree Christian militia group have re-focused attention on the resurgence over the last year or so of the broader militia movement.

That resurgence has been driven in part, say experts, by the election of President Obama. But during the Obama era, threats of anti-government violence -- and even the real thing -- have become more widespread. In fact, with disaffected Americans from Massachusetts to California freaking out against the Feds en masse, it sometimes seems that going postal has become all the rage. Of course, in some cases, that anti-government animus long predates the election of our current president. But there seems to be something about the current climate that's contributing to the rash of incidents.

Here are our top ten flare-ups of anti-government violence -- or threats of violence -- in the Obama era.


1. The Hutaree: Nine members of the Christian militia group, which says it's preparing for the arrival of the Anti-Christ, were charged this week with plotting to kill law enforcement and "oppose by force the authority of the U.S. government." The Feds acted after one member posted online that the group was "ready for war."

2. Joe Stack: In February, the embittered software developer rammed a plane into the IRS building in Austin, Texas, killing himself and one IRS employee. Stack had recently posted online a lengthy anti-government screed.""

TO: Webmaster, Washingtonpost.com
Publisher, The Washington Post Co. (please forward)

The "Let's faceliftbar!" blog spam, below, appears to be part of a paid extortion campaign against The Washington Post. Co. intended to pollute blog discourse and drive the publication to strictly moderate all internet blogs, facilitating what I believe is a covert campaign of U.S. government internet censorship -- apparently conducted by operatives working out of Homeland Security- administered regional "fusion centers" throughout the U.S.

My reporting indicates that government censors use blog moderation as a "cover" to impose prior restraint, and outright censorship, on internet political speech of so-called "targeted individuals" -- many apparently singled out for their political beliefs or their activism:

http://nowpublic.com/world/how-u-s-spy-ops-censor-web-political-speech
http://nowpublic.com/world/u-s-censors-net-while-obama-lectures-china-net-censorship

My many articles on this subject have not altered this pattern of apparent government censorship, which, I believe, is comparable to the regimen imposed by Communist China on its citizens.

As a regulator contributor to WaPo blogs and as a victim of this censorship regime, I urge The Washington Post Co. to issue a formal complaint to Dennis Blair, the Director of National Intelligence, demanding that the U.S. government police its agencies and commands to safeguard the constitutional rights of its citizens.

Thank you for allowing me to offer this suggestion in this space.

I sure hope that doctor didn't go to school on any student loans or go to state college med schools, because that would make him a hypocrite. And I hope he doesn't accept Medicare or Medicaide or any other federal or state bill payment programs. In fact, if he really objects to government intrusion in his medical practice I guess a urologist of principle would be working on some sort of barter system, not wanting unbacked dollars for payment.

The derangement continues to get derangier:

Via Suzy Khimm at Mother Jones: A longshot Republican gubernatorial candidate in Idaho says in a new interview that he has no problem with militias showing "a little force behind the scenes."

ABC's Nightline caught up with Rex Rammell at a training session of the North Idaho Lightfoot Militia. Rammell, who last made national headlines in August when he joked about buying tags to hunt President Obama, is seen in the ABC segment firing a large scoped semi-automatic rifle.

He addresses the role of militias in the context of fears about the new health care legislation.

"It's because of the current administration's politics -- the more they force upon the states, the more noise there is," he says. "The more concern people have, the less freedom there is. Lots of Idahoans believe the health care bill is very intrusive on our individual rights. ... We are not going to allow them to come into the state and make what we believe are unconstitutional mandates. Even if they can get them passed in D.C., we are not going to all that to happen. These guys want to show a little force behind the scene... I don't have a problem with that."

Rammell adds: "I think the way politics is going in the United States and the Tea Party movement -- the whole atmosphere promotes people wanting to get prepared. And I think that is what this is about."

The man who won 5% of the vote when he ran for Senate in 2008 is "running on the platform of supporting a statewide militia," according to ABC.

The Web site of the Christian militia Hutaree links to the Lightfoot Militia site, ABC points out"

You have not been reading my wisdom. I have attempted to write in terms you can understand.

You are the hater. You are the one who uses sexual slurs - and attempts to judge entire groups by the actions of a few.


Race politics is not a way to run the country - or the economy. And we will all be better off if the topic is just dropped completely.

Until it is, Obama is just making racial divisions worse - and he is just dragging the entire country down.


Meanwhile, Obama's health care taxes are a MASSIVE DRAG ON HIRING IN THE ECONOMY - OBAMA'S EGO TRIP IS SINGLE-HANDEDLY PROLONGING THE RECESSION.

You have to start thinking about these things.

What is going to get the economy moving? Certainly NOT taxes on small businesses.

What is going to get the economy moving? Certainly NOT taking away tax structures on pharmaceutical benefits which large companies have - that will REDUCE EARNINGS AND REDUCE HIRING.


Right now, there are thousands of people who now have to sift though the health care bill - and now work on compliance.

Anyone who knows anything about a corporation, compliance is the LEAST PRODUCTIVE, NON-GROWTH PART OF A COMPANY.

From my point of view, thank you for handing the Republicans an angry electorate - and being really STUPID about not correcting that.

Worse than that, leichtman. The rightwingers in this country have just lost their friggin minds. As well as the MSM, down the toilet with them. Here's a CNN contributor, for chrissake --- this is the foxification/propagandization of our media:

Yesterday, ThinkProgress noted that Rep. Patrick McHenry (R-NC) took to the conservative blog RedState to call out “blatant misinformation coming from otherwise well-meaning conservatives” about this year’s Census. “There have been calls to only partially fill out Census forms – even though that would be a direct violation of federal law,” wrote McHenry. RedState editor Erick Erickson, who recently became a CNN contributor, has joined McHenry in urging conservatives to fill out the Census because “it’s a Constitutional obligation.” But on his radio show yesterday, Erickson railed against the American Community Survey (ACS), a more-detailed supplemental survey conducted by the Census Bureau, saying that he would “pull out” his “wife’s shotgun” if someone tried to get him to fill it out:

This is sweet... Rs dazed and confused:

"Health reform appears to have plunged Texas' junior senator straight down the rabbit hole.

Over the last three weeks, "Big Bad John" Cornyn has called on his fellow Republicans to campaign on repeal—then on "repeal and replace"—then on a partial repeal, while keeping the popular parts intact—then on a full repeal, again—and finally, yesterday, he told them the way to win in November was to run as the party that supported key elements of health-care reform, despite opposing it.

Confused? Not half as confused as poor dear Cornyn—or the folks who look to him for a campaign message. Cornyn occupies a key political position as head of the National Republican Senatorial Committee, making him the most listened-to Texan in Washington in these post-Bush days. Trouble is, when it comes to the GOP's strategy for responding to the passage of ObamaCare, no sane person can figure out what in the heck he's saying. He's become the most visible symbol of Republican disorientation as they try to conjure up a new strategy now that a simple "No" has failed them miserably.

It's far beyond my limited capacities to explain Cornyn's head-spinning contradictions. So let me offer a timeline for you, and a challenge: You figure it out!"

I haven't pulled out the line calculator in a little while, particularly since 37th&O hasn't been trying to clog the blog. Using underlined text as a key in the Report abuse line is a unique identifier for a new post.

Incidentally, I did pull off a fun April Fools joke myself. I redid my bowling league's standings in Spanish. It was greeted with general amusement.

Enjoyed the chat today, CC.

As I said on the previous thread, finding some 2 years [SIC] to argue with would be infinitely more rewarding than dealing with you, but it's certainly not "upsetting" much less "head exploding".

Jake,

Are you kidding me? Are we all five years old? A bunch of space holder spam posts?

It's just unacceptable. I am asking the comments folks that "jaked2" be banned although, having already banned "jaked" (as well as several others on both sides of the political spectrum) I have little doubt you will be back.

But, disruptive behavior for the sake of being disruptive just doesn't fly.

When I said Duke - Romney, Butler - Pawlenty, West Virginia - Palin, Michigan State -Obama, I forgot to mention, if NC wins the NIT, it might mean a comeback for Huckabee, but the fact that Dayton whipped the Tarheels means, the old order changeth, and something new, something unexpected, some new arrival on the national scene is afoot-David Petraeus.

Happy Easter-let us all put wrath aside and hope for reconciliation and renewal and request forgiveness of our transgressions as we forgive others.

I don't "hate" anyone, and I don't want anyone to die but rather have eternal life.

Posted by: JakeD2 | April 2, 2010 10:06 AM | Report abuse

bwj, jaked is just an angry, hateful person. You've seen the countless numbers of people he wants to die. And not only that, he also feels insignificant. Think about how he tries to inject himself into every political story. Oh, I went to Mass. to picket some niggger's house and then moved to Conn to vote against Dodd and then to Florida to vote against Crist and then to PA to vote against Specter and then I moved to Nevada to see Palin and then I moved to New Orleans to see Palin.

And no one pays attention to him except for noacoler. No one ever responds to his requests for talking or whatever. It's why he claims to talk to lurkers or pretends to be a lawyer.

And disrupting conversation is a part of that. He know's he's insignificant, so this is a way of exerting some control over the world that is indifferent to him. He has no family or anyone who cares about him or gives him attention. So he comes on here and is generally ignored. But there's no way to ignore flooding the page with what he flooded it with.

And look! Everyone is talking about him! He's getting attention! He must have done something right!

Back on topic:

"For many of us, the arrival of Easter means the arrival of a new season of joy – of Easter parades, Easter egg hunts, chocolate bunnies, and sweet Peeps topping off a family meal. Some may wonder why we merrily celebrate at a time when we’re remembering Christ’s crucifixion on the cross. And there is something to that. Good Friday is, after all, about God who became Man, dying on the cross for our sins. And yet we celebrate Easter Sunday, and we are right to do so.

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life” (John 3:16). This one verse sums up the miracle that is the Easter season and helps explain the celebration. Yes, Christ died for us, but in the end Easter isn’t a season of sadness. Ultimately, the story of Christ’s rising from the dead three days after the crucifixion is the story of the triumph of hope over despair.

Hope is one of America’s unique virtues. Hope makes us dream and achieve the seemingly impossible. It’s who we are, and it’s why we’re able to always believe that our best days are yet to come, both for our families and for our country. Easter time reminds us that we have every right to believe that this hope is based on time-tested truths and a solid foundation."

A lesson for the haters...

It eventually happens to all BHO haters/opponents. Some apocalpytic meltdown. Pat Buchanan on Maddow. Brian (keepin' it pure in Finland) Kilmeade. Don Imus. Rush. Bill (I'll do it live) O'Reilly.

For JakeD/Jake D2, April 1 was his ultimate meltdown. A complete mind f-rt that should, but, as DD pointed out, won't, disqualify him from civilized cyberspace forever.

Jake, remember acknowledgment is the first step toward recovery.....the twelfth step is just around the corner. :)

I think we can leave Mr. Blair out of it, but we mos' def need to get Dr. Spock, Pemelope Leach and Berry Brazelton on the job.

The tantruming could be caused by an unwillingness to share, delay in language skills, an inability to relate to peers, control issues that have lead to bullying or difficulty with separating from the parent.

That or toileting.

URGENT TO: Dennis Blair, Director of National Intelligence
c/o Rosyln Mazer, Inspector General, Office of the DNI
re: Blog-spam cyber-attack on Washington Post's "The Fix" political blog


Dear Mr. Blair:

The Washington Post Co. political blog "The Fix" is under cyber-attack, as this blog thread so graphically demonstrates on this evening and early morning of April 1-2, 2010.

As a citizen and as a journalist, I am concerned that covert government operations could be responsible, directly or indirectly, for what amounts to malicious mischief -- possibly, with the ideological motive of drowning out voices and opposing views that certain agencies and commands may prefer not to have heard.

If The Washington Post Co. has not done so already, I, as a regular contributor here and as a taxpayer, hereby request that your office launch an investigation to determine if operations under your purview are responsible for what is commonly referred to as "blog spamming" -- and whether mainstream and alternate media political blogs, at this site, Politico.com, Dailykos.com, ABCnews.com, MSNBC.com and other political blogs -- are among the "targets" of such "ops."

Also, sir, I would ask whether such activities have any nexus to government programs that support the methodologies revealed in my recent articles, to whit:

http://nowpublic.com/world/u-s-silently-tortures-americans-cell-tower-microwaves
http://nowpublic.com/world/gestapo-usa-govt-funded-vigilante-network-terrorizes-america
OR NowPublic.com/scrivener (see "stories" link)

Thank you for your immediate attention to this matter, and for your important work in keeping America safe -- while protecting the values and civil liberties for which this nation stands.

Sincerely yours,

Vic Livingston, journalist, NowPublic.com/scrivener (CV available at site).

I don't know what is going on here tonight -


Obviously the Obama people are trying to smear all the conservatives - based on the actions of a few.


Those same Obama people are not taking out the black crime statistics - and drawing conclusions about all blacks from those stats - are they ???


Seriously - how many blacks committed crimes in March - how many robberies - how many murders ???


Are those Obama people smearing a whole group of people based on those stats???

NO don't see that.

I don't know what is going on here tonight -


Obviously the Obama people are trying to smear all the conservatives - based on the actions of a few.

Those same Obama people are not taking out the black crime statistics - and drawing conclusions about all blacks from those stats - are they ???

Seriously - how many blacks committed crimes in March - how many robberies - how many murders ???

Are those Obama people smearing a whole group of people based on those stats???


NO don't see that.

Nate Silver at 538 had an excellent column this morning. The GOP has been gassing-on about how stimulus money has been fed at incredible rates to Democratic CD. They have a nice study that proved it (http://mercatus.org/sites/default/files/publication/Stimulus%20Facts%20Working%20Paper.pdf)

Except that Veronique de Rugy (of George Mason University and the National Review) missed something important when she prepared her data and variables. Of the 50 CD that received the most stimulus money, 43 of them are the CD that contains the state capitol. It just so happens that a lot of stimulus money went directly to state gov'ts for dispersing. The top money getters are, in order, the most populace states in the country. There goes that part of the story.

The 7 CD that made the top 50 list but did NOT contain a state capitol? 4 had Democratic congressmen, 3 had Republican congressman? There goes the other part of the story.

Never mind.

Easter break!

The Fix is taking today and tomorrow off as we seek to fight off a cold that Fix Jr. is trying to pass on and prepare for the little man's second Easter. (And, yes, to begin plotting how we can win the 2011 Peeps Diorama contest.)

We'll be back on Monday.

unmoderated political forums don't work. As soon as the right-wing trolls show up, discussion pretty much stops. Since CC is disinclined to moderate right-wing trolls, they dominate.

It's especially annoying that stupid people can so effectively shut down discussion among much smarter people, but then they're usually unemployed so it's easy for them.

Those of you who think bleating about "anti-Obamas" is news and analysis, look away. This is how grown men write.
Eugene Robinson on the baggers and such:

"By contrast, there has been explosive growth among far-right, militia-type groups that identify themselves as white supremacists, "constitutionalists," tax protesters and religious soldiers determined to kill people to uphold "Christian" values. Most of the groups that posed a real danger, as the Hutaree allegedly did, have been infiltrated and dismantled by authorities before they could do any damage. But we should never forget that the worst act of domestic terrorism ever committed in this country was authored by a member of the government-hating right wing: Timothy McVeigh's bombing of the federal building in Oklahoma City.

It is dishonest for right-wing commentators to insist on an equivalence that does not exist. The danger of political violence in this country comes overwhelmingly from one direction -- the right, not the left. The vitriolic, anti-government hate speech that is spewed on talk radio every day -- and, quite regularly, at Tea Party rallies -- is calibrated not to inform but to incite."

Republicans are desperate for news of crisis. They need nothing less than disaster.

But slowly, surely, in their absence, things keep getting better. On the national scene, the big picture, it looks pretty good. The Republican picture, looks bad.

“There’s a growing sense that things are probably not getting worse,” said William J. Schultz, chief investment officer for McQueen, Ball & Associates."...At the close, the Dow Jones industrial average rose 70.44 points, or 0.65 percent, to 10,927.07...strong manufacturing data revived hopes that factories and plants would continue to help lead the global recovery.

In the United States, a survey showed manufacturing expanded for an eighth consecutive month in March, helped by a surge in orders and production. In Europe, data showed a surge in exports helped fuel growth in crucial industries.

A central driver of Thursday’s gains was a report showing signs of improvement for the jobs market." NYT

The Republican Rising! it was ugly while it lasted.

Happy Easter everyone, even though fertility rituals were not what the Young Eagles observed, you got your eggs, your rabbits, here comes the fecund holiday.

Breaking: HCR opponents disgruntled about national direction

"The health-care debate has generated intense levels of frustration among the bill's opponents, and those who say they are outright angry almost universally believe that the country is going in the wrong direction -- some say toward an America they no longer recognize.

Of the 26 percent of people who described themselves as "angry" about the new law in a recent Washington Post poll, virtually all also said the country was on the wrong track. In follow-up interviews, many went beyond health care as they spoke of their deep misgivings about the country's leadership and the changes taking place around them.

"I grew up in the '50s," said Hugh Pearson, 63, a retired builder from Bakersfield, Calif. "That was a wonderful time. Nobody was getting rich, nobody was doing everything big. But it was 'Ozzie and Harriet' days, 'Leave It to Beaver'-type stuff. Now we have all this MTV, expose-yourself stuff, and we have no morality left, not even by the legislators."

Yeah, drindl, I am sad to see Eugene Robinson go as well. He was always the most level headed of the WaPo writers, yet not dishonest in an attempt to appear fair. Apparently he was having some issues with the editorial board as to the direction of his column. But I guess he doesn't want to say too much about it. He'll be missed.

"He scrambled up there every time we went on trips, got in all by himself and enjoyed it"

Oh you betcha, he enjoyed it so much he had diarhhea all over the car -- don't you remember the orignal story?

"As the oldest son, Tagg Romney commandeered the way-back of the wagon, keeping his eyes fixed out the rear window, where he glimpsed the first sign of trouble. ''Dad!'' he yelled. ''Gross!'' A brown liquid was dripping down the back window, payback from an Irish setter who'd been riding on the roof in the wind for hours.

As the rest of the boys joined in the howls of disgust, Romney coolly pulled off the highway and into a service station. There, he borrowed a hose, washed down Seamus and the car, then hopped back onto the highway. It was a tiny preview of a trait he would grow famous for in business: emotion-free crisis management. "

'Emotion-free' sums it up all right. And remember, this was a puff piece "Romney *cooly* pulled off" designed to make mitty look good... it was his idea to mention it.

Bondosan:

You love liars? The Commonwealth of Massachusetts is not using the FEDERAL IRS to mandate health insurance, which is un-Constitutional for the FEDERAL government to do. As for Seamus, Romney had built a wind shield carrier to make the ride more comfortable for the family's Irish Setter: "He scrambled up there every time we went on trips, got in all by himself and enjoyed it," Romney has said. Nice try though.

Weekend "Fixistas" -- Tick off Big Brother: please email this to Josh Gerstein at Politico (jgerstein@politico.com):

CENSORED AGAIN... THE FOLLOWING COMMENT RESPONDING TO A POLITICO.COM ARTICLE ABOUT A SUCCESSFUL LAWSUIT AGAINST BUSH WARRANTLESS WIRETAPPING WILL NOT POST....

Here is the comment "they" (and I mean rogue U.S. gov't operatives) apparently don't want published on a Politico.com blog:

Ironic. The Arabs win a suit against warrantless wiretapping, and this unjustly "targeted" American journalist has his telecommunications spied on, intercepted and maliciously altered by a rogue program apparently run out of my nearby regional Homeland Security-administered "multi-agency" Mid-Atlnatic states fusion center ("MAGLOCLEN" in Newtown, PA). I can't secure an attorney because this rogue federal "program" won't allow me to freely communicate. Welcome to Gestapo USA.

And not one of my mainstream media colleagues will follow up on my many articles exposing this extrajudicial matrix, which is using a classified cell tower- based microwave/laser directed energy weapon system to silently assault, impair and sideline (or even slow-kill) "targeted" Americans -- including this journalist.

Hey, Josh -- try to shoot me an email (scrivener50@verizon.net). Wanna bet it's intercepted and you never get a reply? Or if you do, it may have been massaged by the fusion center operatives (defense contractors?) manning this op. Try anyhow, after you read my articles, linked below:

oh look, more scandal:

The C Street Center, a boarding house for Christian lawmakers made famous by its role in the Ensign and Sanford scandals, is facing two complaints from a group of Ohio pastors. The pastors allege that the center is improperly using its tax status to offer below-market rents to members of Congress -- a charge that could ensnare the members as well.

The 13 pastors, who say they're concerned about the separation of church and state, filed one complaint with the IRS arguing that C Street has improperly declared itself a "church" for taxation purposes on February 23. Their second IRS complaint, filed this week and obtained by TPM, alleges that C Street's rent is much lower than market price. The problem, according to the complaint, is that the members are either not paying taxes on that extra income, or that they're receiving unreported gifts. "

But wait, wait, you haven't told us how the Final Four outcome will affect politics-so I'll have to do it for you.

If Duke wins-seriously stodgy but brimming with talent is victorious-Mitt Romney in 2012
If Butler wins-mid-majors can triumph -Pawlenty comes from the middle of the pack
If West Virginia wins-hockey moms and outside the beltway for sure-Sarah Palin makes history in 2012
If Michigan State wins-Midwestern values of hard work, rebounding and enthusiasm overcome obstacles-Obama wins acceptance for a second term.

Gak -- Broder. Was there ever a bigger hack? He's like the DC Conventional Wisdom Machine. Wind him up and he'll dispense all the conventional rightwing pieties, the shallowest possible take on anything you might ask and always booooooooring.

Robinson is thoughtful -- too bad he's leaving, but you wouldn't want any liberals at the Post, now would you?

Will does make fun reading this morning. McCain used to use his nasty temper for a purpose, now he just uses it for petulance.

Of course, that is pretty much what Will is doing these days, too. They both need more fiber in their diet.

I'd love Broder's job. Get the WaPo to pay for me to fly to some nondescript location, interview some locals, and write a column about "what Americans are thinking."

Actually, George Will is kind of interesting today. Republican internecine warfare always makes for fun reading.
