"Politics and Pints" is tonight!

Only a few hours separate us from "Politics and Pints" -- our monthly trivia night at the Capitol Lounge in Washington, DC.

Planning to come? Make sure to arrive early as it's first come, first serve for team registration. Don't have a team? Don't worry. Just show up and we'll match you up with some good folks.

For those worried about the traffic tangle created by the nuclear summit, don't be. Our own Dr. Gridlock proclaimed that "something went right" today.

No excuses. Come get your trivia on. There WILL be prizes. Full invite is below.

If successful, this will be the first time the First Amendment will be limited.


The silliness of your scenario aside, the FA has always been limited. Seems like none of you guys really understand it; the point of the FA was never to institutionalize unlimited irresponsible license, nor to legitimize dishonesty in advertising (sorry) nor to legalize criminal incitement.

The point of the First Amendment is to allow legitimate political criticism of the government without leading to one being arrested for sedition.

Calling for the murder of a public figure is no more covered than the trivial crowded theater thing everyone yammers about.

And oh, spitting isn't speech. Sorry. But not really.

Word of advice, PissJug ... leave sarcasm to people who can pull it off. You can't. You're neither smart enough nor focused enough, to say nothing to subtle enough.

It's not the racial composition of the TP gaggles that makes them racist, it's the screaming of the N-word, the messages on the signs, the racial beliefs of the alleged people in attendance.

Now go ahead and say that the Democrats are the racists because of things that happened a century ago while the Republicans who call black men n|ggers are pure as the driven snow.

I'd have to say this ends any Presidential aspirations Huckabee might have had, no?


He can have all the aspirations he wants. His social conservatism is as out of step with the times as John Brown's were in his. Hell, even Cindy McCain is on the side of equality.

The sacrificial goat of 2012 will be Romney. Mr. Business Week will carry a few states, Obama will win reelection, the Unhinged Party will gnash teeth and scream their rage at a country that no longer looks like 1950. Get used to it.

Leave It To Beaver was a long time ago.

Rep. Steve Cohen of Tennessee will introduce a Constitutional Amendment which will require crowds to meet a certain amount of diversity in order to assemble.

If successful, this will be the first time the First Amendment will be limited.

Rep. Cohen has stated that the lack of diversity at Tea Party rallies means that the opinions expressed at those rallies are not legitimate - now he is proposing what to do with "Free Expression" which is not validated with enough diversity.

According to Rep. Cohen, federal marshalls will be at the gates of every gathering of Americans in excess of 50 people - and keep count of the diversity of the crowd coming in.

If the crowd does not meet the standard of 5% blacks, the crowd will be deemed to be RACIST - and must be DISBANDED IMMEDIATELY.


Rep. Cohen said, "This Amendment will make sure that we maintain diversity."


Just kidding.... but that is just about what Rep. Cohen meant when he spoke on CNN this weekend.

Huckabee compares same-sex marriage to incest, polygamy

No 37, that was Bush. Try to get your facts straight. I know, facts are a problem for you.

You know, deep down in the marrow of your bones, that President Obama is going to be reelected by a substantial margin in 2012.

That knowledge causes you a lot of pain, doesn't it?

What is the subtitle of the Obama administration?


The Second Hoover Administration.
