    Thirty five seconds. That’s how long I lasted watching this crazy bitch before I had the sensation that my head was exploding. Thirty five seconds. That’s all I could take.

    • McKinley

      Lasted til 1:30. When she somehow conflated the SCOTUS decision with Islam.

  • Badgerite

    How is it that Congressmen ( He goin rogue ) King would impeach two women justices ( what a surprise ) but not touch the justice who wrote the majority opinion that made marriage equality the law of the land.
    They can’t control the Court. And they are not supposed to. That is the reason for the life time appointments. Not only is opposition to marriage equality in the minority now, it will only become more so over time. Young people have no intention of putting up with the kind of attitudes that crazy, (drunk) Christian lady displayed. Equality harms no one. Least of all God
    (PS – There are times, mostly all the time, when Sarah Palin’s voice could make flowers wilt. )

    Governor Harry Brown? That would be very odd.

    John Schneider agrees with you, Chez.

    I didn’t watch the show, so I have no dog in this fight. From what I could tell, The Dukes of Hazzard was a live-action cartoon, set in a place and time divorced from any recognizable reality. Its disappearance from basic cable will have a negligible effect on American popular culture.

    Is it fair to single out this one show because of unfortunate (purely cultural) uses of Confederate iconography? Perhaps not, but if this show weren’t pulled from the air, then every less-benign use of the same iconography in popular culture could be defended, badly, by pointing to The Dukes of Hazzard.

    The Right has been trying for quite a while to blame California’s drought on environmentalists not allowing every river in the state to be dammed, and not allowing agriculture and the cities drain the rivers dry. Sarah Palin isn’t even being creatively idiotic—no surprise, since she’s never had an original thought—she’s just borrowing the idiocy of the California GOP and putting her personal spin on it. And since Palin doesn’t live in California and throws a wobbly whenever a non-Alaskan says anything about how that state is governed, she can bloody keep her opinion to herself.

    My guess is that JIm Webb is running for President so he’ll be able to leverage his 3.8% showing in New Hampshire into being named Secretary of Defense. No way is he delusional enough to think he’ll win.

    Rand Paul may have found his running mate in Cliven Bundy. Together, they’ll have the angry white freeloading bigot vote tied up.

    Bob, the whole point to turning control of federal lands over to the state is precisely that the states can’t afford to maintain it. The states would have to sell most or all of those lands to *kazoo fanfare* private industry, because nobody has a better track record of environmental protection than the Diggit and Leggit Mining Corporation, right?

    The difference between the Left and the Right is never as clear as when a Supreme Court decision comes down. The Left grumbles and moans, but accepts the Court’s decision. The Right shrieks and wails and tries to find fanciful workarounds and, lately, tries to find ways of punishing the Court for not voting the Right’s way. Bobby Jindal wants to do away with the Supreme Court altogether; Ted Cruz wants Supreme Court justices to be subject to retention elections; and now Steve King wants to impeach the justices who voted wrong. Will someone please explain to me why the Rs are taken seriously as a party?

    Bob, the video you posted of Crazy Christian Facebook Lady was something to behold. She’d never click in a million years, even if she by some chance listened to the show (ha!), but I’d like to point her to Juan Cole’s analysis of what the Bible actually says about marriage.

    Chez, I hope you’re right. I know sane Christians, people I’m more than happy to associate with and whose company I enjoy. And I know they represent the majority of their faith. They’re just not the loudest voices out there.

      With his semi-support of the Confederate flag I don’t know if a Democrat would name Webb Defense Secretary.

      • muselet

        Almost certainly true, but what other reason could Webb have to run? He’s not going to win the nomination, he doesn’t have a book or a reality TV show to hawk, and he’s not going to move the terms of the debate to the Right.

        Seriously, why is Jim Webb running for President?

        –alopecia

        • ranger11

          Good question. Really don’t know. But then again I don’t know why more than half the Republicans are running. Maybe Webb really believes he can inject some of his Appalachian/Southern perspective into the Democratic Party. It’s weird but there is a lot of delusion involved in running this year on all sides. Most years too I guess.

        • Florence deBear

          Why do all of these jokers want to follow Obama’s term?

        • McKinley

          Jim Webb would get my vote for just for writing “Wichita Lineman”, but lost it with “MacArthur Park”.
