Julie Driscoll: So, this whole thing where Weiner gets to sext once, resign, and be forgiven to the point where he’s leading in the New York mayoral race polls, and then sext once again, and once again be forgiven by the liberal community is just, well, hypocrisy doesn’t seem too strong a word.
Julie Driscoll: The battle seems to be pitched among the libs as to who’s the purest. Ed Snowden = hero = “good” lib; Ed Snowden = lying attention-seeking cowardly traitor = “bad” lib.
Julie Driscoll: If it were up to Republicans, poor children would be eating thin gruel three times a day in the “please sir, may I have some more” tradition.
Julie Driscoll: Young Republicans are still desperately seeking a way to appeal to America’s youth while maintaining the hard-line integrity of anti-gay/anti-abortion rights.
Julie Driscoll: As a feminist, it burns my ass to see women willingly make fools out of themselves, and it burns my ass to see women go after the “other women” instead of the man who has pledged to love, honor, cherish, dot dot dot.
Julie Driscoll: Because the tea party is full of ignorant, uneducated, sheeple, most of whom have never had an original thought, they now and will forever fail to see the irony in now weeping over their alleged “persecution” at the hands of the IRS.

Julie Driscoll: Call me crazy, but I believe firmly that the statutory laws are in place for a reason – to prevent the exploitation of young men and women who don’t have the ability to make informed decisions, who don’t have the ability to “consent.”
Julie Driscoll: Students and their parents’ only hope is Elizabeth Warren and Sherrod Brown, two Democratic Senators who have the cojones to take on big banks, Wall Street, and the powers that be.
Julie Driscoll: If you missed the Correspondents Dinner 2013, here is a video along with a list of one liners delivered by President Obama — the president with great timing.
Julie Driscoll: Kids yucked it up, snickered and giggled and guffawed and made light of this young woman’s violation, all while Ms. Parsons’ life, full of misery and pain and despair, was ultimately too much to bear – and she ended it.
Julie Driscoll: Cantor can continue to talk out of both sides of his mouth in an effort to re-brand Republican “messaging,” but the proof is in the pudding: Anyone who votes consistently against rights for same sex couples is a bigot, small-minded, and destined to stay that way.
Julie Driscoll: Although it’s not really necessary to “know the enemy” (since our enemies have already outed themselves as idiots and numbskulls hugging their guns and building underground bunkers), it’s on sites like teaparty.org where true radical right-wingers are born, bottle-fed, nurtured and set free to wreak havoc.
