She’s Squirrelly, Not Shirley

From POLITICO:

The aide who helped turn Rep. Michele Bachmann into a controversial mainstay of cable news has informed colleagues that she’s quitting — just as the firebrand Republican congresswoman prepares for her biggest media moment yet.

Multiple sources have confirmed that Michelle Marston, a veteran Hill aide, is leaving Bachmann’s office.

In an e-mail exchange with POLITICO, Marston declined to say why she’s going.

Blithering (look that up, Joe) Idiot

From THE HILL:

Former Vice President Dick Cheney’s assertion that President Barack Obama is “dithering” on Afghanistan drew agreement from Rep. Joe Wilson (R-S.C.) — after Wilson learned what that word meant.

Wilson, the lawmaker who shouted “You lie!” at the president during a joint session address to Congress, said he had to look up the meaning of Cheney’s charge against Obama.

Cereal Wingnuts

From The New York Times:

WASHINGTON — Republicans emerged from Tuesday’s elections energized by victories in Virginia and New Jersey, but their leaders immediately began maneuvering to avoid a prolonged battle with conservative activists over what the party stands for and how to regain power.

The victories, in races for governor, were cast by the party’s national chairman, Michael Steele, as a sign of a “Republican renaissance.”

…snip…

Yet throughout the day Wednesday, Republicans grappled with the disappointing outcome of a special election for what had been a reliably Republican House seat in upstate New York. That contest became a battleground between the party establishment and a conservative insurgency demanding more ideological purity from candidates.

All Politics is Loco

From City Brights Blog at the San Francisco Chronicle:

The Right Wingnuts led by Rush Limbaugh, Sarah Palin, and Michelle Malkin lost their self-selected signpost election the 23rd Congressional District in New York. The ultra-conservative Republican candidate Doug Hoffman conceded to Democrat Bill Owens […]

Owens gained 49 percent of the vote, versus 46 percent for Hoffman, and six percent for Dede Scozzafava, who’s name was still on the ballot, even though she dropped out of the race.

The Bratz Pack

Hi Kids!!! Didja miss me? It’s been a electronic nightmare ’round here. My computer got infected with something (I suspect some nefarious rethuglican plot) to the point where I couldn’t even play solitaire. The offspring had to go all nuclear on it–scrub it clean and start from scratch. Well, I can play solitaire again, and I loaded up Photoshop again (took 4 tries, and it’s a friggin’ mess–lost all my fonts and the old pics don’t work with whatever PS did to update the program). Anyway, I’m happy to be back, and I was thrilled to see that you guys hung around in my absence. I’ll try my best to answer the comments you left.

I didn’t have a chance to do lots of research on anything, so I went with a sure thing–what hasn’t changed is that the Rethugs are as rabid as ever.
