is NOT a fucking mandate. It is the wishy-washy, dumb-ass U.S. American middle-of-the-road “Independents” following the fickle wind because they are too willfully ignorant to have an ideology or governing principle, multiplied by disappointed liberal democrats staying the fuck home, plus mid-term lack of interest on the part of many voters, multipled again by those driven insane by Fox News and their corporate overlords – i.e. the motivated Tea Party tools. I wish our President and the rest of his party could realize this. The Democrats did NOT tack too far left and I’m sick of hearing otherwise. The Blue Dogs lost. The damage was not as bad as predicted by the so-called liberal media and incumbents are always voted out in mid-terms. Christ, this country is stupid. I just hope it is not beyond repair.
That is all.
The former CEO of HP, Carly Fiorina, is in a primary race for the GOP slot v. Senator Barbara Boxer (D-CA). In this endeavor, Fiorina has made a campaign ad. A very scary, extremely insane campaign ad, the likes of which Madam has never seen before and which must be viewed, in its entirety, to be believed. Behold:
I laughed; I cried; I pissed my pants, curled up in a fetal position and screamed for my mommy! Then I did another bong hit.
Google the name of Dr. George Tiller’s assassin and the fourth result is “scott roeder hero”.
Hero? How about terrorist?
Terrorism is defined in the Code of Federal Regulations as
“…the unlawful use of force and violence against persons or property to intimidate or coerce a government, the civilian population, or any segment thereof, in furtherance of political or social objectives.” (28 C.F.R. Section 0.85)
The FBI further describes terrorism as either domestic or international, depending on the origin, base, and objectives of the terrorist organization. For the purpose of this report, the FBI uses the following definitions of terrorism:
Domestic terrorism refers to activities that involve acts dangerous to human life that are a violation of the criminal laws of the United States or of any state; appear to be intended to intimidate or coerce a civilian population; to influence the policy of a government by mass destruction, assassination, or kidnapping; and occur primarily within the territorial jurisdiction of the United States. [18 U.S.C. § 2331(5)]
Why this man is not being tried in Federal court (not to mention being allowed to pursue this pathetic defense) is beyond Madam.

Madam respectfully asks her three readers to visit Pandagon and help in the effort to repeal the Hyde Amendment.
But she told you so. (If you wish to avoid the grammatical train wrecks of Ms. Palin’s resignation speech – and why wouldn’t you? – skip to the last two paragraphs.)
Frank Rich has a most excellent piece on why our favorite almost-one-term governor is, unfortunately for Madam’s sanity, still relevant.
I told you I hated to say it.
From the President! Of the United States! Of America!
This evening, at 11:15 p.m., [Saturday, 11/7/09] the House of Representatives voted to pass their health insurance reform bill. Despite countless attempts over nearly a century, no chamber of Congress has ever before passed comprehensive health reform. This is history.
But you and millions of your fellow Organizing for America supporters didn’t just witness history tonight — you helped make it… You spoke up. And you were heard.
I beg to differ, Mr. President. About that being heard part, specifically.
How can I put this succinctly?
Oh, I know!
The Stupak Amendment stinks.
I’m tired of women’s reproductive health care rights being thrown under the bus. And I am not alone in this weariness. I also know that chipping away at abortion rights will not get rid of abortion. Ever. It will just make it unsafe. And that means women will die. And that is some fucked up shit.
CAN YOU HEAR ME NOW, MR. PRESIDENT?!
While we find ourselves most puzzled by the recent and abrupt decision of Sarah Palin to resign her “title” as Governor of Alaska because being a lame duck is so lame, and being a dead fish is so… stinky, we are not surprised in the least to learn that Sarah herself penned her resignation speech.
By the way, have you read this crazy-pants shit, otherwise known as the actaul transcript as released by Palin’s office? Some excerpts, after the jump…
