Bill O’Reilly’s math

This 22 second statement has got to be seen to be believed. Anyone this math-challenged shouldn’t be discussing the Canadian health care system and shouldn’t be on the air at all. Via Media Matters.

Interesting statistic that the average Canadian lives almost 2 years longer than the average American.

BTW, did you know that O’Reilly’s average viewer is 71 years old? Who is he going to replace those viewers with in coming years?

Senator Al Franken charges SCOTUS with “judicial activism”

Senator Al Franken charges SCOTUS with “judicial activism”

There’s no doubt that Senator Al Franken has arrived. Consider his direct accusations aimed at the current version of the United States Supreme Court. In a thumbnail, Franken charges that the Court has worked hard to crank out pro-business rulings that curtail critically important and long-standing individual rights.

Yes, We Can (And We Must)!

Yes, We Can (And We Must)!

President Obama has failed to keep his campaign promises regarding faith based programs and transparency–so far.

Admittedly, Mr. Obama worked hard and accomplished much since January 21, 2009. His accomplishments include assembling his administration, getting appointments approved over irrational GOP opposition, trying to include insane Republicans into his cabinet, promoting and signing an $800 (flawed) billion stimulus package, dealing with the budget (and additional appropriations in violation of promises to keep war funding inside the pentagon budget), dealing with Swine Flu, taking international trips, repairing international relations and making an important nomination to the Supreme Court.

Yes, Virginia, it’s only been since January 21, 2009! It hasn’t been even six months and the poor guy is getting crucified for what he HASN’T yet done. Cool off, chill out a little and consider these proposals (MY proposals):

If Mr. Cheney actually speaks—which he no longer does because he prefers not to be questioned further about secret assassination squads he apparently set up and then ordered the CIA not to disclose such actions to the Congress as mandated by federal law. Mr. Cheney has now abandoned his defense to a surrogate, Liz Cheney, who performs her role of defender for the former Vice President based upon her dubious qualifications of being Mr. Cheney’s daughter and a Bush administration appointee in the State Department (which was ignored in the Bush era!).

You see, the music died.
