Birther Booted From Air Force
The Air Force said Wednesday it is discharging a hero of the so-called birther movement who refused to report to duty in Germany for a few days earlier this month because he doubts President Barack Obama's citizenship.
Governor Rick Perry distanced himself from George W. Bush by saying, 'I went to
Texas A&M. He went to Yale.' In other words, his idea of instilling confidence
is by saying, 'Don’t worry. I’m not as smart as George W. Bush.'"
Republicans Rewarding Failure
Just because Karl Rove is
behind a plot doesn’t necessarily mean it won’t work. That we’re still talking
about the former Bush aide at all is a testament to his singular tenacity.
How has he done it? The man helped elect the Pelosi Congress—it was Rove who in 2006 was in charge of holding on to GOP majorities in the House and Senate. He helped elect Barack Obama—insisting that John McCain was the only “electable” Republican in 2008 and bad-mouthing most of the others running. His indispensable support of his boss' overspending and government bailouts even helped create the Tea Party, which has bedeviled Rove and other GOP establishment figures ever since.
And yet billionaire donors to the Republican Party seem oblivious to the record, handing Rove big, fat checks to fund his activities further.

A Question I asked My Viewers The Other Day: What Would The World Be Like If McCain and Palin Won Instead of Obama?
President McCain privatizes
Social Security and establishes a voucher program for Medicare. Following the
Stock Market Crash, which wipes-out the savings of most retirees, President
McCain announces a new program to provide retirees, “Free Powerball tickets for
life!. One hundred-dollars-worth per month, with a valid I.D”.
Following the uproar of the American people over the Medicare voucher plan, the Republican congress passes a bill allowing the vouchers to also be used as groupons. Seniors can now choose between health care, or discounts at local restaurants.
The President declares, “Only in America can you find freedom of choice!”
After the out-of-wedlock birth of her grandson, Schwag, to her son Track, and Meghan McCain, Vice President Palin resigns mid-way through her first term. “I cannot, in clear conscience, allow my family to be ridiculed by the Lame Stream Media any longer. I must answer to a higher-calling”.
It is reported that Rupert Murdoch has offered the V.P. a billion-dollar-a-year contract to join Fox news.
In a surprise move, President McCain re-establishes Planned Parenthood, an organization he de-funded two years earlier.
Good Luck, Lisa!
Thank you John B!

More Oil In The Gulf of Mexico????'
Oil giant BP said Thursday it was investigating a new sheen in the Gulf of Mexico but added there was no immediate indication it was the result of a new oil spill.
Is the SEC Covering Up Wall Street Crimes?
For the past two decades,
according to a whistle-blower at the SEC who recently came forward to Congress,
the agency has been systematically destroying records of its preliminary
investigations once they are closed. By whitewashing the files of some of the
nation's worst financial criminals, the SEC has kept an entire generation of
federal investigators in the dark about past inquiries into insider trading,
fraud and market manipulation against companies like Goldman Sachs, Deutsche
Bank and AIG. With a few strokes of the keyboard, the evidence gathered during
thousands of investigations – "18,000 ...
including Madoff," as one high-ranking SEC official put it during a panicked
meeting about the destruction – has apparently disappeared forever into the
wormhole of history.
