I think all either of us were saying was please remove the link to the non-factual story (or clearly mark it as satire.)

For gods sakes, who cares? Life goes on with or without the link...

I'm tired of apologizing for these people. They make constant mistakes on purpose, and rarely, if ever, recant.

Uhh, in this case you made the mistake.

And a mistake on purpose is hardly a mistake at all.

You led off your post with a lie, so why should anyone bother reading the rest? Hold yourself to a higher standard, dude. Or, don't, and endure the wrath normally reserved for Meade's bullshit.

Partisan for TRUTH, bitches.

Edit: potential drunk post alert-- I'd need a second opinion.

I approve.

The right is crazy enough that you don't need to make stuff up!

and subsequently crazy enough that if you accidentally post something not true, it doesn't really deviate from what they're actually saying. So while it's important to get everything right if you're writing an article to be published, a forum doesn't have to be perfect if it sticks to the main point.

Although I did edit for the sake of someone accidentally repeating it as if it were true. I've seen the light...

Forget Akin. This one appears to be real, altho not quite as dramatic as the headline suggests...

The chairman of the Oversight and Government Reform Committee in the U.S. House of Representatives is considering an investigation into the U.S. Labor Department's estimation of the national unemployment rate, The Huffington Post has confirmed.


http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/10/1 ... 58510.html

Funny, where were all the investigations before the numbers started going lower.

but politically manipulating the data that goes into the unemployment rate would require a conspiracy of epic proportions, with the cooperation of hundreds of civil servants in an agency not headed by a political appointee.


Hey, it doesn't matter. Let's possibly waste our fucking time doing everything we can to make the president look bad. They don't want the economy to get better. They will do everything they can to NOT make it better.

The GOP, your modern day party of the witch hunt.

Wuh, whoa!

Roger Rivard Loses Support From Wisconsin Republicans After Saying 'Some Girls Rape Easy'

Thompson had not endorsed Rivard -- but Gov. Scott Walker (R) and vice presidential nominee Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) had. Both men withdrew their endorsements on Thursday, and state Rep. Robin Vos (R-Rochester) -- who is leading the effort to maintain a Republican majority in the Wisconsin Assembly -- also pulled his support.


That's gotta sting.

I guess the Koch machine has decided to pick and choose where to double down instead of digging in their heels every damn time no matter what.

And we used to think not-being-endorsed-by-Scott-Walker was a compliment.

Looks like Meade went back to Cincinnati Sunday to protest:

Protesters removed from Obama rally in Ohio
http://news.yahoo.com/blogs/ticket/prot ... ction.html

"CINCINNATI—At least two protesters were removed from a rally for President Barack Obama here on Sunday after they interrupted his speech by shouting from the bleachers. A few moments into Obama's address at the University of Cincinnati basketball arena, a man seated in the upper rafters stood up and began shouting down the president about abortion while holding an upside down sign reading, "This Moral Wrong Should Never Be A Constitutional Right". The crowd of 13,500 drowned him out with a chant of "Four more years!" and the incident forced the president to stop his speech. The man continued shouting until five police offers hauled him out of the arena. When Obama began speaking again, another man on the other side of the arena tried to shout him down again, but was quickly escorted out."
