I’m writing for tomorrow and feeling quite bleary-eyed, because a road construction crew has been working on the street below my window and literally vibrating the entire building. I’m still under the weather.
Jig Zone Puzzle:
Today’s took me 3:22 (average 5:17). To do it, click here. How did you do?
From Raw Story: A conservative blogger drew big laughs at a rally for Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) when he suggested that Texans open fire on cars bearing California license plates.
How typically Republican it is to think that killing families is a matter for humor.
From YouTube: Rachel [Maddow] shows DAMNING photos & emails that PROVE Gov. Christie and his staff were fully informed during the GWB Shutdown, despite all Christie’s LIES to the contrary.
Rachel has Christie so busted that a new nickname for him comes to mind: PIGnocchio.
From Daily Kos: Senate Republicans once again blocked emergency unemployment aid for Americans unemployed six months or longer. In fact, Senate Republicans filibustered an extension of the jobless benefits into November, and they blocked a three-month extension. After the votes, Sen. Jack Reed (D-RI) pointed out that the CBO had estimated that the longer aid extension would create 200,000 jobs.
Republicans continued to whine over procedure in an attempt to distract from the fact that they are standing in the way of unemployment insurance. What they want is to force a lengthy series of votes on poison pill amendments.
How many times do I have to say it? Nuke the Filibastards!
