Linsdey Lohan's treatment by L.A. Courts has something to do with "Class Warfare" ?

If you have a Reddit account, would you school these boobs as to what this Class Warfare crap is about?

Yes, She is That Bad, She would Screw Things up That Much

This kind of dumbth about Sarah Palin would be laughable if it were inconsequential.

There is nothing unusual about Governor Rick Perry. Uneducated fools can be found in every country and every period of history, and they are not unknown in high office. What is unusual about today’s Republican party (I disavow the ridiculous ‘GOP’ nickname, because the party of Lincoln and Theodore Roosevelt has lately forfeited all claim to be considered ‘grand’) is this: In any other party and in any other country, an individual may occasionally rise to the top in spite of being an uneducated ignoramus. In today’s Republican Party ‘in spite of’ is not the phrase we need. Ignorance and lack of education are positive qualifications, bordering on obligatory. Intellect, knowledge and linguistic mastery are mistrusted by Republican voters, who, when choosing a president, would apparently prefer someone like themselves over someone actually qualified for the job.

In deed, how does one take on an opponent like a Rick Perry when merit isn’t what matters in a contest?

Following up on choosing to send climate change deniers to Congress, the chicken has come home to roost. That would be fine, but I don’t deserve a chicken sitting on me, too, like people in Bangladesh don’t deserve to be flooded out of their homes.

Flotsam from Facebook: "Do you believe Obama is Eligible to be President?"

Image Hosted by ImageShack.usCurrently 26% of the respondents think so. That is one in four - only a quarter.

Would someone ask Vint Cerf, Tim Berners-Lee or Mike Zuckerberg if this is what they had in mind when they started contributing to the internet?

MUST BE SEEN TO BE BELIEVED of the day:

According to this Fox News focus group, Iowa Republicans don’t believe President Obama knows anything about democracy or what’s going on in Egypt. They also believe President Obama is a Muslim.

(h/t Gawker)

Image Hosted by ImageShack.usAbout 44% if them think that Obama is Muslim (see the raise of hands around 1:00). They say it with a straight face, too. Next, a couple men say that Obama’s religion is liberalism in a way that doesn’t distinguish it from Islam - more like tossing it on top of him being Muslim; conflating/mistaking/mashing it up in the mush between their ears the difference between ideology and theology.
