Quote of the Day


"One is a group of exclusively white men who live in a bygone century, have bad teeth and think of blacks as three-fifths of a person... and the other are the founding fathers."

-- Bill Maher on the difference between the invoked-to-death Founding Fathers and the Tea Party

And I predict conservative punditry overreacting in three, two,...

That aside, bravo, Maher.

Sorry, he lost the funny about a decade ago, and now he's just an ass.

Anon@631,

Overreacting? Really?

It turns out that the new poster boy for right-wing radicalism (AZ shooter) wasn't a right winger, nor a radical, and he was not influenced by anything other that a delusional mind.

In fact, the only radical in the incident turns out to be the left winger who was shot during the shooting later screaming "You're Dead!" to a Tea Partier.

But it is "conservative" overreacting that has your drawers in a bunch, huh?

Christ, I'm not even a conservative and the hypocrisy is insulting.

Anon 8:31, my comment was to imply that the punditry on the right would be howling with regards to Bill Maher's comment.

NOT. TUSCON.

It's been fairly established that neither side is directly at fault for Tuscon; and it doesn't hurt to clean up our rhetoric.
