To the point. Having been offline most of the day, I haven’t had time to post, so for my benefit and maybe yours, I’m going to do a summary of the day’s events in Republican Nitwittery. [this might be a regular feature as I get busier with moving]
--->> Andrew Breitbart, the Republican thug who perpetrated the ACORN video hoax last year, has struck again.
A new video, a new accusation, and USDA appointee, Shirley Sherrod, is forced to resign. The White House denies any involvement, and the farmer’s wife defends Sherrod. Sherrod and Eloise Spooner [the farmer’s wife]on CNN today
It turns out to be another hoax by Breitbart.
--->> Only two Republicans voted to extend unemployment benefits for 2.5 million Americans today.
Democrats broke the filibuster, which had been ongoing since the end of May, when Carte Goodwin (D-W.Va.) was sworn in to temporarily replace Sen. Robert Byrd in the Senate. The bill passed, 60-40, with Republicans Olympia Snowe and Susan Collins joining the Democrats to vote for the bill.
--->> Would it be a good political move for House Republicans to join Bachmann’s Tea Party caucus?
The pundits weigh in.
I may be updating later.
