Charlie Pierce on Ryan As VP Pick

Paul Ryan Romney VP Pick - Paul Ryan, Candidate for Vice President - Esquire: "Make no mistake. In his decision to make Paul Ryan, the zombie-eyed granny-starver from Wisconsin, his running mate, Romney finally surrendered the tattered remnants of his soul not only to the extreme base of his party, but also to extremist economic policies, and to an extremist view of the country he seeks to lead.

On Darcy Burner

I think that Darcy Burner is smart, articulate and a hard worker.

Until she finds a billionaire to make her their political vanity project she will continue to lose elections because she gets outspent.

This is the reality of modern electoral politics in America.

Everything you need to know about Bowles-Simpson

Lindsey Graham: 'Stupid' to Let Tax Cuts for Wealthy Expire | Video Cafe:
""If you're looking for a job, this election is not about Romney's tax returns, it's about your tax returns," he continued. "Both candidates should pledge, 'If I get to be president of the United States, we're going to do Bowles-Simpson [debt-cutting plan].'""

Stupid Comment Of The Day - Politico Edition

"This has become a fringe belief group of new age seekers in the past forty years. Most of the followers in the US are desperately seeking a truth that their conventional traditional religions did not supply. As a result there are many mentally unstable personalities who put theirselves and their families in harms way by what would be considered a cult in the USA. That the males carry knives makes it suggestive that a family member lost a relative to the cult, and was protesting that loss. "

When You lose Ed Morrissey You are Fucked as a Republican

Obama, Democrats suing to block military voting in Ohio? Update: No « Hot Air: "So no, they aren’t trying to block military members from getting to the polls, but arguing that since the polls will be open anyway, everyone else should have access to them as well.  A couple of commenters think this will be a “logistical nightmare,” but the logistics aren’t really that scaleable.  Having the polls open for a few would be the same as having them open for many.  There may need to be  few more election judges, but those positions are voluntary anyway."

Booman on Mitt Romney

Booman Tribune ~ A Progressive Community:

"He's just not a nice person. He's very arrogant. He's very insulated. He lacks basic instincts for decorum and politeness. He's the kind of person who is as likely to insult you unintentionally as intentionally, and you're often left wondering whether he said something to be mean or just because he's clueless. "
