Lying Republicans

In this instance, I speak of John McCain and Sarah Palin.

This video has two clips from one year ago.

And if any of that shocks you, elected Republicans have gotten worse.
And then there’s Cheney, who brags about his stellar record of no 9/11 tragedy’s in the last 7 years of his vice presidency.

Bad behavior extends to Joe Wilson.
It extends to the Newt.
It extends to Sarah Palin.
John Boehner and Aaron Schock (who spent time on foreign soil contradicting the administration)
Inhofe and his “truth squad” This guys is clueless but will spend time traveling abroad in order to contradict the president.

Everyone who appreciates the constitution should be revolted at the behavior we’ve seen by republicans recently.
And anyone with a lick of sense should be absolutely pissed off at their attempts to sabotage our country’s economic recovery.

Rachel Maddow is badass

Tonight Rachel interviewed Tim Phillips, who appears to be an emotional type (hurt easy) – though I suspect that is simply an act.
Its a very interesting interview – please take a look.
These are the guys promoting the anti-healthcare Neanderthal reactions at town halls this summer.

Rachel Maddow on Meet the Press

Unless I heard wrong tonight, Rachel Maddow will be on Meet the Press again this weekend.

She was first on in August, with Rep. Dick Armey (R-TX), Sen. Tom Coburn (R-OK), and former Senate Majority Leader Tom Daschle (D-SD).

And Dick Armey resigned on the 14th from his position at DLA Piper.
He likely got some heat as a result of rachel’s show.

Here is part of her appearance on meet the press:

She’s impressive.

A decent prediction by Mike Blowers

Predicted the day of a players first home run.
And the inning (5th).
And the pitch type (fastball)
And the count (3-1).
And the location (left field, second deck).

It appears fairly amazing to me, but I bet if you ask Blowers he’d say its simple luck and educated guesses.

3-1 being a fairly typical fastball count, those two go together.
And the batter is a good fastball hitter with power (or so I’ve heard/read). From his minor league stats I would not be surprised if Tuiasosopo could hit 30 in a season at some point.
Blowers may have scouting information that says the rookie is a pull hitter (most power hitters are pull hitters).
Guessing the inning and distance?
Maybe Blowers saw how far he was hitting in BP that day, but inning sounds like luck or odds.

Still pretty amazing, considering all that.

Rachel Maddow had a clip about the prediction on her show.

Rachel Maddow on Obama Diplomacy

Rachel Maddow takes a look at Obama’s surprise announcement at the G20 regarding Iran’s secret nuclear facility.

She refers to the announcement as diplomatic shock-and-awe.
It is refreshing to have an administration understand the term diplomacy.
