“Coffee Party” Founder Is Obama Campaign Operative
March 3rd, 2010
Billed as an alternative grassroots movement to the Tea Party, which has been for the most part absorbed by mainline Republicans and Neoconservatives, the “Coffee Party” promised to wake up politically minded Americans and offered a different avenue for the freedom movement.

Obama Signs Patriot Act for Another Year with NO Privacy Protections…VIDEO…
February 27th, 2010
If the Patriot Act hadn’t been approved for another year, Sunday would have looked much different.

Sunday could have meant the government was no longer given permission to wiretap the phones of Americans and seize their records and property.
But since the bill was approved by Congressional Democrats earlier this week and signed into law by President Obama on Saturday, this Sunday is just another Sunday for Americans living with the Patriot Act.Obama Signs Patriot Act for Another Year with NO Privacy... more

Jim Bunning Repeatedly Blocks Unemployment Benefits Extension, Tells Dem ‘Tough Shit’
Jim Bunning, a Republican from Kentucky, is single-handedly blocking Senate action needed to prevent an estimated 1.2 million American workers from prematurely losing their unemployment benefits next month.

Today Senator Scott Brown (R-Mass.) was one of five Republican Senators to vote for a procedural motion on the jobs bill in the Senate. The motion ended up passing 62-30 which ends debate on the bill allowing it to go forward for a simple majority vote.

This vote is actually more important than the final vote on the bill since Brown, along with other Republicans, could have effectively killed the bill by sustaining a filibuster with their 41 votes. Now the Democrats are almost sure to be able to pass the bill since they only need 50 votes for the final vote (V.P. Joe Biden would break a tie).Today Senator Scott Brown (R-Mass.) was one of five Republican Senators to vote for a... more

Bombastic conservative talk show host Glenn Beck closed a three-day conservative conference on Saturday by demanding that Republicans get their own house in order before re-trying their hand at governance.

In a winding speech that touched as much on his personal turmoil as his policies and politics, Beck had the packed auditorium at CPAC captivated from the start. Using hand gestures, multiple impersonations and his infamous chalkboard, he took the usual swipes at Democrats. “Progressivism,” he declared, “is eating the Constitution.” Moreover, it “was designed to eat the Constitution.”***SCROLL DOWN FOR VIDEO***

Alexander M. Haig Jr., the mercurial four-star general who served as a confrontational secretary of state under President Ronald Reagan and a commanding White House chief of staff as President Richard M. Nixon’s administration crumbled, died Saturday in Baltimore. He was 85.
He had been admitted to Johns Hopkins Hospital on Jan. 28, said Gary Stephenson, a hospital spokesman, and died there at approximately 1:30 a.m.

Mr. Haig was a rare American breed: a political general. His bids for the presidency quickly came undone. But his ambition to be president was thinly veiled, and that was his undoing. He knew, Reagan’s aide Lyn Nofziger once said, that “the third paragraph of his obit” would detail his conduct in the hours after President Reagan was shot, on March 30, 1981February 20, 2010

The mystery man who was tossed off an airplane for allegedly attacking Mitt Romney has finally been revealed — it was one of the guys from LMFAO … and he claims Romney is the one who got physical first!
It all went down shortly after the two parties boarded a flight from Vancouver to LosAngeles on Monday.
According to a video confessional from LMFAO’s Sky Blu, it all started when he leaned his seat back while the plane was still on the tarmac … and Romney, who was sitting behind him, started yelling at him to put his seat back up.

Andrea Fay Friedman, the voice actress who played the role of "Ellen" --the character depicted as having Down syndrome on the Valentine's Day episode of Family Guy, has responded to the criticism of sometime-Alaska Governor Sarah Palin. Of special significance, Friedman herself has Down syndrome. Palingates has Friedman's complete response:
My name is Andrea Fay Friedman. I was born with Down syndrome. I played the role of Ellen on the "Extra Large Medium" episode of Family Guy that was broadcast on Valentine's day. Although they gave me red hair on the show, I am really a blonde. I also wore a red wig for my role in " Smudge" but I was a blonde in "Life Goes On". I guess former Governor Palin does not have a sense of humor. I thought the line "I am the daughter of the former governor of Alaska" was very funny. I think the word is "sarcasm".
In my family we think laughing is good. My parents raised me to have a sense of humor and to live a normal life. My mother did not carry me around under her arm like a loaf of French bread the way former Governor Palin carries her son Trig around looking for sympathy and votes.

A priest conducting funeral services for the late Pennsylvania Rep. John Murtha on Tuesday said in his remarks that there is "a time to make law and a time to change laws, and, yes, a time to earmark."
Father William George's variation on a passage from the Book of Ecclesiastes was a pointed reference to Murtha's well-known ability to channel federal money to the southwestern Pennsylvania congressional district he represented for decades.
Family, friends, colleagues and various political dignitaries came to Pennsylvania to pay respects to Murtha on Tuesday, and some flew through the airport named after him.
The Pittsburgh Gazette has more details on the services and eulogy for Murtha:
Father William George, a Jesuit priest and president of Georgetown Preparatory School, read from the Book of Ecclesiastes, the portion about how for everything there is a season and time.
"The writer of Ecclesiastes could also have written 'a time to make law and a time to change laws,' " Father George said, adding, wryly, "and, yes, a time to earmark."
Just two examples: Murtha provided money for the district to build the John P. Murtha Airport in Johnstown, Pa. and the local Allegheny County Bus service purchased new buses thanks to the late congressman

Joe the Plumber goes off on McCain, says he ’screwed up my life’
By Eric Zimmermann
Joe the Plumber is no longer a fan of either Sarah Palin or John McCain, it seems.
Joe, also known as Sam Wurzelbacher, told an audience in Pennsylvania this week that McCain “is no public servant.”

“McCain was trying to use me,” Wurzelbacher said, according to public radio correspondent Scott Detrow. “I happened to be the face of middle Americans. It was a ploy.”
“I don’t owe him s—,” Wurzelbacher continued. “He really screwed my life up, is how I look at it.”Joe the Plumber goes off on McCain, says he ’screwed up my life’
