I thought that if you support a candidate, you don’t go out of your way to turn people against your candidate.

But what do...

About one-third of U.S. adults (33.8%) are obese.

So why is this a problem for Chris Christie?  Because he is not in a liberally protected class:

“Liberals, who embrace diversity of all other kinds — who demand quotas for transgender kindergarten teachers in public schools — these selfsame liberals have the unmitigated gall...

As Kathleen posted earlier, Warren Buffett is backing away from the so-called Buffett Rule, which apparently is not so much a Rule as a stream of consciousness sprinkled with thoughts and afterthoughts.

The best thing about the Buffett Rule Non-Rule What Are You Talking About, is that Think Progress is spinning like...

From David Dayen at Firedoglake:

We’ll hear this was necessary because of Awlaki’s operational role, and his part played in the Fort Hood massacre and the Christmas Day bombing attempt.  In reality, many experts saw Awlaki as a public figurehead, a man who could speak in front of a video camera and...

This could not wait for a bumper sticker post, and anyway, no bumper stickers were involved, Anti-Obama sign in Uptown neighborhood draws controversy (h/t reader Leland):

NEW ORLEANS — There are several political signs attracting all kinds of attention in one Uptown neighborhood.

On Wednesday, crowds gathered at the corner of Calhoun and Coralie streets, looking at several signs depicting President Barack Obama as either a dunce, a puppet or a crying baby in a diaper.


 

Update: Michelle Malkin reminds us that these signs are mild compared to anti-Bush signs; see some examples in my prior post, Because Only The Far Right Incites Violence.
