God, yes. What do you want to bet at least one White House staffer had it printed and framed before being taken down?

Looks like there's some push back in the important 8-12 demographic.

Wonkette gives us six retaurant chains who will be letting sick people cook your food.

My personal favorite:
Olive Garden / Red Lobster

The CEO of this company is a real ball buster, and he is NOT going to make YOU pay ten cents more for a plate of noodles, no way Jose. That is a solution for pussies. This CEO is just going to cut back on employees’ hours so that they work 29 hours per week instead of 30, exempting them from health care coverage mandate. So the next time you go to Olive Garden or the Red Lobster, rest assured that your server is not going to have health care coverage. There, does that make you feel better?

More infighting among the GOP over Romney's loss.

Ex-Romney adviser blasts top surrogates

A former senior adviser to Mitt Romney's presidential campaign skewered some of the GOP nominee's surrogates Wednesday, saying it was "stunning" how they preened for administration positions when they thought Romney would win but then turned on the candidate as soon as he lost the election.

Dan Senor recalled an anecdote at the large rally held in Ohio the Friday before Election Day earlier this month. He said some of the event's major headliners were praising the candidate backstage and had begun engaging Romney's transition team.
...
Still not naming names, Senor said the tone dramatically changed in the days following Romney's loss, as many top GOP leaders conducted post-mortem analysis of the campaign.

"I won't say who they are. They know who they are. They were on television. I mean, it was unbelievable. It was five, six days later, (they were) absolutely eviscerating him," he said.

Karl Rove Is in Time Out

Less than a month after his strange, dramatic and sort of sad election night meltdown on air, Fox News is distancing itself from Karl Rove. New network rules require producers to get special permission before booking Rove and staunch anti-Obama commentator Dick Morris on their shows.

And this conservative dick is pulling out because of Obama...

Menards blames Obama for pulling out of plans for O'Fallon, Mo location
http://www.kmov.com/home/Menards-blames ... 06641.html

"The city of O’Fallon Missouri will lose potential tax revenue after the home mprovement store Menards pulled out of plans to establish a location in the area. The company is blaming the Obama administration for the project’s failure....“We are on schedule to open our new stores in O’Fallon, IL and St. Peters, MO this Spring, 2013. For O’Fallon, MO, I’m very sorry, but we are a family owned business and with the Obama Administration scaring the dickens out of all small businesses in the USA at present, we have decided not to risk expansion until things are more settled.”

Menard's is a small family business? How many chain stores do they have in multiple states? Must be hard for the family to chase around to all those stores. Sort of like the Walton Walmart family.

Hey folks, cheer up. This is the type of reliable performance we so very nearly dodged, except on a national level. I'm not sure if the Romney camp thought the media was, for various reasons, a good mark for this type of chicanery, or if it was a more pure attitude of weaselry.

Any which way, thank Bob his crew of mercenaries isn't in charge.

I'm more inclined to think it's a side effect of working for a campaign with unlimited funds, staffed by people accustomed to working for the one percent.

I think that's the sort of bill they sent everybody, forgetting that the newsies weren't the Koch brothers.

I think it goes to show what an utter mess and failure his campaign was. This coupled with cutting off workers credit cards so they couldn't get home and other unpaid bills.

And I thought people in the private sector were supposed to be so much better handling money.

Thanks for the link. That's pretty funny.

Charging $812 for a meal? $1000 per person per day for ground transportation?

Those are the people who were campaigning in large part on the need to tighten our belts and cut spending?

:roll:

Some of our organizations have alerted American Express that we are contesting these charges. We look forward to your response.


That's got to be pretty embarrassing for a presidential campaign.
