In other news, a federal judge has blocked a reduction in early voting in Ohio on the grounds that it violates the equal protection clause and the Voting Rights Act.

Meanwhile, it appears that Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker’s corporate tax cuts may be catching up to him. A drop in tax revenue has created a new budget deficit.

Regarding the above cartoon — pundits of all stripes who continue to call on the president to “do something” appear to be unaware that we’ve already carried out well over 100 air strikes against ISIS.

    I don’t know about the rest of you, but I sure am glad ISIS came along to be the next great threat. There always has to be something to drive the defense industry spending.

    I believe the murderer who beheaded James Foley even mentions the air strikes during his video rant. Apparently ISIS is more informed regarding what’s going on than the pundits who keep pleading for Obama to “do something”.

    Poor Scooter. All those tax cuts were supposed to create the 250,000 jobs he promised. And didn’t deliver. How many times does the falsehood of this basic Republican dogma need to be proven?

      Poor Scooter. All those tax cuts were supposed to create the 250,000 jobs he promised.

      I suspect the only thing the tax cuts were really supposed to do is what they did: lower taxes on those who didn’t need the relief. Claims they were for any other purpose was just cover.
