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.
Julie Driscoll: Ben Carson has proven that the new savior of the GOP is kinda like the old savior of the GOP – bigoted, offensive, with a background of violence toward others, and drowning in his own gaffes.
Julie Driscoll: All nine of these so-called Democratic Senators need to be placed squarely in the middle of the political chopping block. ”Civil rights for all” is not some “messaging” trick we’re going to fall for. Republicans already tried that – and look how it worked out for them.

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.
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.
Julie Driscoll: It’s hard for most of us to comprehend that a candidate would not only fudge the info, but would outright lie in the most extreme, shameless, blatant way that the Romney-Ryan ticket is lying.
Julie Driscoll: When Fox ran out of ways to protect the golden boy Ryan, after they’d media-mauled, after they’d gloated about their poll showing a clear Ryan win, Fox launched the smear that Biden was drunk at the debate:
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
