The following video illustrates how much importance Fox News places on rumors and gossip. They don't even bother trying to figure out how many people believe this stuff, they just fire up the cameras and go for it.

Todd Akin is like the poster child for all those new extreme GOP candidates who could probably coast to a victory in November but just can't resist the temptation to release all those ideological flying monkeys they've had caged in their minds all these years.

Like this writer, I'd rather see a nasty, honest campaign than a puffy, polite one that's hiding what the candidates really want to do.

Paul Ryan says his favorite band is Rage Against the Machine. Sorry, Paul...your side doesn't get to enjoy the cool bands. You're stuck with Ted Nugent and Kid Rock.
Romney's getting his poll bump currently. I think those numbers will change when people outside the GOP base start to understand how extreme Ryan's views are.

I was watching that idiot GOP economist Art Laffer today on CNBC. He called Paul Ryan a staunch advocate for financial restraint (paraphrasing here). Turns out that really wasn't true during the Bush years.

This sounds like an interesting book, may have to pick it up. It does seem often that we're never going to solve our big problems with one culture dominating the North and another dominating the South.

Thought I'd back off the Romney-Ryan story for a minute and check the status on an older story. Has the repeal of DADT destroyed the military yet?

There's a buzz currently that Paul Ryan is seriously being considered to be Mitt's running mate. Nothing would make me happier...this is a guy who won't be vague about the GOP's plan to decimate the social safety net.

Here's an interesting piece talking about how many young conservatives have little interest in continuing the culture wars. The picture is of Meagan McCain, somebody I associate with this growing segment of the Republican Party.

CEOs might be able to make deals that end up destroying people's lives. But that definitely isn't something that should go on your resume if you want to be president of the country.

It seems like as the country has become more polarized, the presidential elections have gotten simpler. There are only maybe a few "swing" states and that's where you need to spend most of your ad money. Since the president is now leading in New Mexico, Colorado,New Hampshire, Ohio, Michigan, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania and Florida it looks like it's getting tougher and tougher for Mitt to get to 270. Of course, November is still a long time from now and you never know what might happen between now and then.

I look forward to the day when electricity generated by a solar panel powers my next car (some type of plug-in vehicle with a gas backup).
I've said it before and I'll say it again...I can understand if somebody is proposing everybody's taxes go up to tackle the deficit. But raising them on the middle class and giving the rich a tax cut? No way. And I don't want to hear any more bullshit about the "job creators" and the magical theory that helping them will solve all our financial problems. That ship has sailed.
