Theocrazy

From Dana Milbank at POST OPINIONS at The Washington Post:

Yes, [Rick] Perry is passionately anti-government, or at least anti-this-government. But the man who suddenly tops the Republican presidential polls is no libertarian. Rick Perry is a theocrat.

And he’s not the only one.  I’m lookin’ at you Botox Batshit Michele Bachmann and Princess Sarah Palin!

Tea and Crackers

From The Plum Line at The Washington Post:

By some reckonings, Christine O’Donnell had a bit of a rocky time at her Delaware Senate debate with Dem Chris Coons [Wednesday] night. She wouldn’t say whether she believe in evolution, described Coons as a Marxist, and appeared to stumble over her answer on discretionary funding.

And yet, as Dana Milbank notes, in comparison to recent revelations about her and the national caricature that is the result, her performance was clearly an improvement.

If that’s so, there are two people she has to thank for that, and they’re both Sarah Palin advisers: Randy Scheunemann and Michael Goldfarb. They were the ones who took on the job of prepping O’Donnell for the debate, Goldfarb confirms.

The Devolution of the Rethuglican Party

From Maureen Dowd at The New York Times (Op-Ed):

Christine O’Donnell doesn’t understand why monkeys can’t turn into people right before her eyes.

Bill Maher continued his video torment of O’Donnell by releasing another old clip of her on his HBO show on Friday night, this time showing one in which she argued that “Evolution is a myth.”

Maher shot back, “Have you ever looked at a monkey?” To which O’Donnell rebutted, “Why aren’t monkeys still evolving into humans?”

TEXtbooks

From The New York Times:

AUSTIN, Tex. — After three days of turbulent meetings, the Texas Board of Education on Friday approved a social studies curriculum that will put a conservative stamp on history and economics textbooks, stressing the superiority of American capitalism, questioning the Founding Fathers’ commitment to a purely secular government and presenting Republican political philosophies in a more positive light.

The vote was 10 to 5 along party lines, with all the Republicans on the board voting for it.

The board, whose members are elected, has influence beyond Texas because the state is one of the largest buyers of textbooks.

They’re a page right out of history!

From The Atlanta Journal-Constitution:

Watching CNN’s Cafferty File, we learn that the collision of the Bush family and the Obama famly at the White House today was something like “the Flintstones meet the Jetsons.”

Close, but no cigar! You see, kids, I have photographic proof that Grumpy Jack was only half right. Here’s are Chimpy and Pickles greeting Michelle and Barack Obama in front of the White House.

The Evolution of Captain Underpants

From The New York Times:

WASHINGTON — Senator John McCain likes to present himself as the candidate of the “Straight Talk Express” who does not pander to voters or change his positions with the political breeze. But the fine print of his record in the Senate indicates that he has been a lot less consistent on some of his signature issues than he has presented himself to be so far in his presidential campaign.

Mr. McCain, who derided his onetime Republican competitor Mitt Romney for his political mutability, has himself meandered over the years from position to position on some topics, particularly as he has tried to court the conservatives who have long distrusted him. His most striking turnaround has been on the Bush tax cuts, which he voted against twice but now wants to make permanent. Mr. McCain has also expressed varying positions on immigration, torture, abortion and Donald H. Rumsfeld, the former defense secretary.

Devolution…

From Reuters (transcript of White House press briefing 12-07-07):

WASHINGTON–(Business Wire)–James S. Brady Press Briefing Room

12:42 P.M. EST

MS. [Dana] PERINO: Good afternoon. I don’t have anything to start with on
this Friday, so I’ll go straight to questions. Jennifer.

Q Thanks. On these CIA videotapes, did either the President or
Vice President or Condoleezza Rice, when she was National Security
Advisor, or Steve Hadley, see them before they were destroyed?

MS. PERINO: I spoke to the President, and so I will have to defer
on the others. But I spoke to the President this morning about this.
He has no recollection of being made aware of the tapes or their
destruction before yesterday. He was briefed by General Hayden
yesterday morning. And as to the others, I’ll have to — I’ll refer
you to the Vice President’s office and I’ll see if I can get the
others.

Q Was there any White House involvement in approving or commenting
upon their destruction?

MS. PERINO: As I said, the President has no recollection knowing
about the tapes or about their destruction, and so I can’t answer the
follow up.
