“If you lose that foundation, John Adams was implicitly warning us, then we will not follow our constitution, there will be no reason to follow our constitution because it is a moral and religious people who understand that there is something greater than self, we are to live selflessly, and we are to be held accountable by our creator, so that is what our constitution is based on, so those revisionists, those in the lamestream media, especially, who would want to ignore what our founders actually thought, felt and wrote about in our charters of liberty – well, that’s why I call them the lamestream media.”

News you can use all day
As today is the day before Thanksgiving, we thought we should give all the Scissorheads something to be thankful for: that you are not the Lamestream Media pundits, as Mooselini so deftly describes them. So here’s our Pardon the Turkey Day Roundup.
- So what has our old pal Divorce D’Spousa—a Xristian Xrazie so stupid and venal that he didn’t know that he needed to be divorced before he could be betrothed to his also-married mistress—been up to? Oh, you know, dog-whistling to kill the president:
The Secret Service on line one! Anyway, he’s since deleted that Tweet.
- And next we turn to Chimpy’s paid shill and ethically challenged word-smith Maggie Gallagher, the unwed mother and founder of the National Organization for Marriage (NOM), who oddly claims that marriage is about raising children well, you know, with loving married parents. Anyway, Gallagher besides being opposed to marriage equality is also opposed to gay people raising children, especially through adoption:
“But I actually do think it’s a — we’re making it a foundational decision about what marriage is and what it’s for. And the historic understanding of marriage is that it’s rooted in the reality we need to bring together male and female, mother and father, to make and raise the next generation.”
“And as we disconnect marriage from that idea, which is happening broadly, not just because of gay marriage, but as we disconnect marriage and children and instead focus on marriage as a kind of romantic, intimate, loving, caretaking [sic] relationship for adults, I think we’re going to hurt a lot of children.”
Well, who can argue that a loving family should not raise children? (The New Civil Rights Movement)
- Ah, Mark Halperin, a media personality so well-versed in his craft of punditry that he once called President Obama a dick on live television, has decided to look into Obamacare:
“I’ll say here again what I tried to say on Twitter yesterday,” Halperin said on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.” “I didn’t use the phrase ‘death panels,’ and I don’t think there are ‘death panels’ in the Affordable Care Act.”
“But what there is — the point I was trying to make and which I did make, what there is in the law is something that is intended to lower health care costs, which will produce rationing, whether you think rationing is a good idea or bad idea,” Halperin continued.
Which is to say, Mark, that you think that there are Death Panels. (Livewire)
David Gregory (R-TV): “They aren’t liking [the comparison of the ACA rollout to Chimpy's response to Katrina]. it only goes so far if you are talking about competence of an administration or the ability for government to handle a really big project. Maybe there is some comparison. But it probably stops there. The bottom line is that the president has negative attribute attributes about his competence and his own credibility. those are trend lines that are going down. frankly I liken it more to the Iraq war. that was life and death. this is not. it’s totally different. But when it comes to an issue through which everything else can be judged that’s the comparison to the previous administration, one they are trying to fight through now.”
I thought the Katrina comparisons were stupid, disgusting and vile, but leave it to the GOP testical cozie David Gregory to find a way to make a bad analogy worse. I still want someone to find a case of someone getting killed because of a glitchy website.
New York Times Editorial:
President Obama is now threatened by a similar toxic mix. The disastrous rollout of his health care law not only threatens the rest of his agenda but also raises questions about his competence in the same way that the Bush administration’s botched response to Hurricane Katrina undermined any semblance of Republican efficiency.
That’s stupid and offensive. I’ve yet to see anyone killed by a Web site roll-out glitch (of which the NYTimes actually should know a lot about) versus dismantaling FEMA and then standing by and watching fellow citizens drown and not lifting a finger to help them.
Your Daily Gohmert
“There are many who have been aware of Scripture, and it has often been a guide in our relations with Israel,” said Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX). “’Some of us believe that the Bible is accurate. Certainly, so many prophesies have been fulfilled, and if that is true, this administration, unless they can find a verse that accurately says that those who betray Israel will be blessed, then this country is being dug in a deeper hole by this administration and its betrayals of Israel’s trust and Israel’s friendship.”
The wall separating Church and State appears to be broken in Screwie Louie’s end of the insane asylum.
“If turnout is in the 30s, the low 30s, we’re gonna win. If it gets higher up in Fairfax [in Democratic-leaning Northern Virginia], say like 40, it’s likely we won’t. I don’t think it’s going to hit 40 anywhere. I’m looking at 32.”

Ted Cruz’s Dad Calls US a “Christian Nation,” Says Obama Should Go “Back to Kenya”
The whole piece is full of rich material, and it does explain where the high-pitched bitch squealer gets some of his nuttier ideas, and completely explains his sense of smug superiority. He was obviously raised in a bubble by a certifiable theocrat.
Watch the videos if you can; I couldn’t get very far.
“We didn’t accomplish our ultimate policy goal in this battle, and we didn’t because unfortunately a significant number of Senate Republicans chose not to unite and stand side by side with House Republicans. Had we stood together I’m convinced the outcome of this fight would be very, very different.”

A follow-up from the Morning Quote:
OVERLAND PARK, KS (KCTV) -
A 20-year-old waiter provided exemplary service at an Overland Park Italian restaurant, but his anti-gay customers refused to tip him because of his sexual orientation.
“Thank you for your service, it was excellent. That being said, we cannot in good conscience tip you, for your homosexual lifestyle is an affront to GOD. (Homosexual slur) do not share in the wealth of GOD, and you will not share in ours,” the customer wrote. “We hope you will see the tip your (homosexual slur) choices made you lose out on, and plan accordingly. It is never too late for GOD’s love, but none shall be spared for (homosexual slur). May GOD have mercy on you.”
As word has spread through social media, other customers are coming in to offer words of encouragement and tip the young server extra.
The anti-gay message has galvanized support for the server on social media with a campaign underway to flood the restaurant on Friday. Dr. Marvin Baker and his partner had lunch at the restaurant on Thursday and asked to be seated in the server’s section.
“I was angry. I said this is not Christian as I know it,” Baker said. Baker served as a pastor for many years and currently leads a Bible study group for LGBT members. He said the couple’s behavior was ungodly.
“This does not represent Christianity. I called them Pharisees,” he said. “God really loves us. And God does not advertise or promote hate. That is not love.”
