Gun Nuts Making Case for Gun Control

Julie Driscoll: Those of us who, like Supreme Court Justice Scalia, believe that there are limits to 2nd Amendment rights are becoming increasingly sickened by the mantra that somehow denying people the right to own assault weapons and high capacity clips is trampling on 2nd Amendment rights.

hostess strike

Julie Driscoll: In the “real people” world (not the “corporations are people” world, but the people people world), running up debt prior to filing for bankruptcy would likely be considered fraud.

John McCain’s Blind Fury

john mccain

Julie Driscoll: McCain has become unstable and dangerous, and it all stems from his bitterness – and desperate desire for vengeance – because “that one” beat him in 2008, and beat another one just as unpalatable in 2012.

Yes, Romney Would Restrict Contraceptive Accees and He Is Lying When He Denies It

binders full of women

Issa Launches Libya Witch Hunt Against Obama Administration

congressman darrell issa

Julie Driscoll: Fox News’ Megyn Kelly and former Bushie Brad Blakeman are pissing on our legs and telling us it’s raining, claiming falsely that there’s a “bipartisan” committee, when it’s nothing more than a witch hunt run by Darrell Issa

Up on the Rooftop: Romneys Double Down on Seamus

seamus

Sarah Palin and Mama Grizzlies: Feminism without Feminists

sarah palin

Julie Driscoll: Palin’s femininity is one that is recognisable to most women: she’s the kind of broad who speaks on behalf of other broads but appears not to like them very much.

“Sluts” Tell Moralistic Busybodies to Pound Sand

santorum-condum-short

Bill O’Reilly: Viagra for Health, Contraceptives for Promiscuity

Komen, We’re Not Done with You Yet

komen

Julie Driscoll: Komen is between a rock and a hard place: Fund Planned Parenthood and the anti-choice zealots breathe fire; de-fund it and progressives who’ve firmly supported its cause withdraw support and trash it on Facebook and Twitter and blogs.

Huntsman Withdraws . . . and Then There Were Five

huntsman

Julie Driscoll: The good news about the only sane candidate, Huntsman, withdrawing is that we now only have to have one term to refer collectively to the GOP candidates: Whack jobs works for me.

Texans Love Their Guns

jaime gonzalez

The accounts of what happened minutes before 15-year-old Brownsville, Texas student, Jaime Gonzalez, was shot by police after brandishing a pellet gun “closely resembling” the real thing are murky, as “authorities declined to share what the boy said before being shot.”  Those details will emerge.  What might also emerge is what drove this young man, a drum major in the [...]

A Vote for Newt, Willard, and Chums Is a Vote Against the Unemployed

gop teabaggers

Julie Driscoll: In their zeal to see that President Obama is a one-term president, it does not behoove Republicans to roll out anything that would actually improve the economic outlook for the unemployed. They barely pay lip service to it.

I’m a Liberal, but I Won’t Condemn the Wars

wtc-memorial

Julie Driscoll: I promised my son that I would never protest or condemn or belittle this war, that I would never dishonor his service by reducing it to foolishness.

Ohio’s “Heartbeat” Bill: A Flagrant Violation of Roe v. Wade

abortion

Julie Driscoll: It’s mind-blowing in the extreme that states – such as Ohio, Mississippi before it, Kansas, Alabama, Idaho, Indiana, Oklahoma and others – believe they can just do the big blow-off of Roe v. Wade and strip women of rights that are guaranteed under federal law.

Sarah Palin on Herman Cain: “Boys Will Be Boys”

sarah palin

Julie Driscoll: Call me crazy, but shouldn’t the “morality and values” party believe that cheating and lying and deceit and trashing of marital vows and violations of who knows how many biblical rules and regs shouldn’t be reduced to Sarah Palin’s “boys will be boys?”

Gloria Cain’s Silence Resonates

gloria and herman cain

Julie Driscoll: Is she gonna channel Hillary, and stand by her man, or is she gonna do a Jenny Sanford, and tell the schmuck he’s on his own, file for divorce and leave him to his shenanigans – in this case, an Atlanta, instead of Argentinian, mistress?
