Drain Clogs – 06-04-2010

South Carolina Republican State Senator Jake Knotts (and GOP governor hopeful) called fellow GOP governor hopeful Nikki Haley a raghead. He also called President Obama a raghead. Good times.

Boss Hogg???

Georgia leads the nation in criminal punishment! WOOOOOOooOOOOOO!!!

Another KBR employee was raped while working in Iraq:

Anna Mayo was working at KBR’s facility in Balad in November 2009 when she was assaulted by an unnamed rapist who worked for KBR. She charges that she was choked unconscious with a rope, beaten and raped.

The Obama administration has significantly expanded a largely secret U.S. war against al-Qaeda and other radical groups

Special Operations forces have grown both in number and budget, and are deployed in 75 countries, compared with about 60 at the beginning of last year. In addition to units that have spent years in the Philippines and Colombia, teams are operating in Yemen and elsewhere in the Middle East, Africa and Central Asia.

Birhters are getting (even more) stupid, are now claiming Obama Birth announcements are fake.

Look at that job market fly! Into the ground.

What do you do when citizens are taping cops using excessive force? Make it illegal to video tape cops! Is your state one of the three states of shame?

Let’s have for-profit prisons run by an all-Christian staff! Or maybe we shouldn’t have for-profit prisons….nah!!

A US citizen was among the dead on the Gaza flotilla. Expect lots of pundits and politicians to now explain how it is okay for Israel to kill US citizens. FreeRepublic and friends are already saying Furkan Dogan wasn’t American enough. Maybe next time you should have blonde hair, blue eyes, and a vagina, then maybe the teabaggers and/or Nancy Grace will care about you, Furkan!

Sorry, House Dems, I can’t support your attack on the ethics office. Maybe you should just be ethical, Martha Fudge!

Bobby Jindal still wants to Drill, Baby, Drill!

Paul Krugman proves once again that ACORN and low-income minorities did not cause the housing crash. But that won’t keep Limbagh, Beck, and the teabagging masses from claiming otherwise.
