Romney told the contributors that “women are open to supporting me,” but that “we are having a much harder time with Hispanic voters, and if the Hispanic voting bloc becomes as committed to the Democrats as the African American voting block has in the past, why, we’re in trouble as a party and, I think, as a nation.”

Republicans just can't help themselves...

Mitt Romney Picks The Granny-Starver for VP


This election will now have to be about class, however coded—this guy wants to dismantle ALL entitlement programs (Medicare, Social Security, Medicaid, etc.).

By virtue of enormous tax cuts for the wealthy and corporations, Paul Ryan's budget will entirely break the non-military sector of the federal government—it's a feature not a bug.


12 cogent reasons to not elect the crazy Ryan-Romney team.

also, a must read:
Paul Ryan is an authentically dangerous zealot. He does not want to reform entitlements. He wants to eliminate them. He wants to eliminate them because he doesn't believe they are a legitimate function of government. He is a smiling, aw-shucks murderer of opportunity, a creator of dystopias in which he never will have to live. This now is an argument not over what kind of political commonwealth we will have, but rather whether or not we will have one at all, because Paul Ryan does not believe in the most primary institution of that commonwealth: our government. The first three words of the Preamble to the Constitution make a lie out of every speech he's ever given. He looks at the country and sees its government as something alien that is holding down the individual entrepreneurial genius of 200 million people, and not as their creation, and the vehicle through which that genius can be channelled for the general welfare.

Set The Bar Impossbly High—Insist That One's Cultural Identity Never Be Used To An Advantage (unless white)—Dare The Individual To Accurately Frame The Obstacles He or She Overcame To Succeed—Foster Resentment—Rinse and Repeat

Because he (Obama) is a black man, he has an obligation to be grateful to the white people who voted him into office. Because he is a black man, he has an obligation not to use the full powers of his office in such a way as to alienate any of the white people who so graciously voted him into office. Because he is a black man, he has an obligation not to use the full advantages of his office in his effort to get those white people to reelect him as their president for another four years. Because those white people voted him into office, his primary job as president is to make sure his entire presidency is a demonstration of how far we've come as a nation on race, and that means he is not allowed to do anything or say anything that the white people who elected him can perceive to be divisive, because his primary function is to make them feel good about themselves. In theory, at least, all presidents are servants of the people who elected them. In the case of Barack Obama, it has seemed from the start that the idea as applied to him was more than mere metaphor. He is the first president in my lifetime whom the country felt obligated to remind that he know his place.
                              .                    .                    .

He wasn't elected to be president, after all. He was elected as an avatar of American tolerance. His attempts to get himself reelected imply a certain, well, ingratitude.

Great read and sadly true.

The right is terrified that Obama will be perceived as overcoming prejudice to become president..."What racial prejudice?"

RIP, Gore Vidal (updated)

[From Aaron Burr's journal]: [Thomas] Jefferson was a ruthless man who wanted to create a new kind of world, dominated by independent farmers each living on his own rich land, supported by slaves. It is amazing how beguilingly he could present this contradictory visions. But then in all his words if not deeds Jefferson was so beautifully human, so eminently vague, so entirely dishonest but not in any meretricious way. Rather it was a passionate form of self-delusion that rendered Jefferson as president and as man (not to mention as writer of tangled sentences and lunatic metaphors) confusing even to his admirers.
I read Burr, A Novel, when it was first published in 1973. I was 15 years old and not terribly interested in Aaron Burr, but I knew Gore Vidal from watching his eloquent and taciturn debate with William F. Buckley during the 1968 Democratic Convention in Chicago.

It was delightful to watch because both men literally wanted to make the other catch sheer force of hatred.

Fucking David Brooks actually wrote the following in a widely read newspaper:

I’d say today’s meritocratic elites achieve and preserve their status not mainly by being corrupt but mainly by being ambitious and disciplined. They raise their kids in organized families. They spend enormous amounts of money and time on enrichment. They work much longer hours than people down the income scale, driving their kids to piano lessons and then taking part in conference calls from the waiting room.

from Why Our Elites Stink (which means they don't really stink I just wanted to say they stink in the headline of my insipid editorial to get people to read it and conclude as I have that our elites are wonderful and simply lack the courage to accept how fantastically wonderful they are...David Brooks pauses to wipe mouth and clean his glasses...)

I'm probably wrong, and anything is possible.

Updated, from Matt Taibbi:
Romney can’t even be mean with any honesty. Even when he’s pandering to viciousness, ignorance and racism, it comes across like a scaly calculation. A guy who feels like he has to take a dump on the N.A.A.C.P. in Houston in order to connect with frustrated white yahoos everywhere else is a guy who has absolutely no social instincts at all. Someone like Jesse Helms at least had a genuine emotional connection with his crazy-mean-stupid audiences. But Mitt Romney has to think his way to the lowest common denominator, which is somehow so much worse.

For once in your lives turn a win into a win, just like the Republicans were able to do when I was a wingnut (and half the time they were able to turn a loss into a win). Don’t argue amongst yourselves about what would have been better- smash the Republicans around the head and neck with the cudgel you have been given. We’re not debating which Democratic plan would have been better, we’re debating the reality of what we have now versus the 18th century version of what Republicans would replace it with.
 Again, as a former wingnut and lifelong Republican until 2006 or 2007, I am fucking begging (Democrats) treat a win like a win and use it to your advantage. The most depressing thing about becoming a Democrat after being a Republican for so many years is just watching Democrats shit the bed whenever they win. Press the fucking advantage.

There is something simmering deep inside the soul of all Americans. We want to know that our country belongs to the people; that the government acknowledges our individual rights; that fiscal responsibility is an absolute requirement. We want our presidents and politicians to mean what they say when they take the oath of office... "to defend the Constitution of the United States!"

A painting executed to celebrate the collapse of democracy, and the mass delusion that the working class will benefit from the coming austerity fueled oligharcy.

I guess this is how a coup d'etat works in the 21st century, but I have to say, the successful enlistment of working class rubes to stand squarely against their own self-interest is truly breathtaking.

The CIA materials directly contradict the many claims of Bush officials that it was aggressively pursuing al-Qaida prior to 9/11, and that nobody could have predicted the attacks. “I don’t think the Bush administration would want to see these released, because they paint a picture of the CIA knowing something would happen before 9/11, but they didn’t get the institutional support they needed,” says Barbara Elias-Sanborn, the NSA fellow who edited the materials.
The White House received a truly remarkable amount of warnings that al-Qaida was trying to attack the United States. From June to September 2001, a full seven CIA Senior Intelligence Briefs detailed that attacks were imminent, an incredible amount of information from one intelligence agency.
