H/T fellow Bloosier John @ Left In Aboite for providing the pic for me to steal... erm, borrow.

Another Last Song for Dick Cheney

Dennis Prager gets the bell for using "Jew" the most times in one article, and making ABSOLUTELY no sense whatsoever. A recurring theme for him. (13 pages worth of recurring)

Not only do the staff of the Politico not seem to be able to differentiate between the letters "B C" and "C L I F F", they make RNC talking points up out of whole cloth, let paid political consultants lash out at enemies in the guise of "opinion" and the sole female reporter at the rag is in charge of the gossip section, eye-rollingly entitled "SHEnanigans".

I know I'm prone to be weepy, but this this devastated me.
Compassionate Conservatives my ass.

Not really sure what this means, but knowing Soros it could become interesting.

Walter Reed patients told to keep quiet

Soldiers at Walter Reed Army Medical Center’s Medical Hold Unit say they have been told they will wake up at 6 a.m. every morning and have their rooms ready for inspection at 7 a.m., and that they must not speak to the media.

“Some soldiers believe this is a form of punishment for the trouble soldiers caused by talking to the media,” one Medical Hold Unit soldier said, speaking on the condition of anonymity.
RNC Platform- Punish the victims.

Oh, those silly Liebercrats....

What's better, one of the original sponsors of the act is disgraced Liebercrat Bill Finch.

On a more serious note, it looks like one of the first election laws that really target campaign bloggers, giving legal challengers what I'd imagine is a legal standing to force campaigns to disclose conversations they have with bloggers.

The text of the (proposed) law makes several references to those making web-based appeals for donations or advocating for or against specific candidates in "consultation with" any given campaign, which would seem to require some level of official disclosure from anyone commenting for or against candidates online, or posting a donation link.
Wish they'd come up with a vaccine against that kind of stupidity.
