- This holiday season Rush Limbaugh wants you to know that starving children are "wanton little waifs and serfs dependent on the State." Of course that's still probably better than Rick Santorum who wants to know why "If hunger is a problem in America, then why do we have an obesity problem among the people who we say have a hunger program?" In case any of you are actually unsure of the answer, it's because healthy and nutritious foods are actually more expensive than unhealthy foods. Shocking.
- Speaking of Christmas presents, Newt Gingrich's tax plan would permanently lock the rich into a lower tax bracket than the middle class. Then again, Rick Perry's plan would actually raise taxes on the poor while the rich would pay nothing. And Mitt Romney admits that he's been lying about the Obama administration's regulations, but that's not going to stop him from repeating his false claims.
- And remember, while the Consumer Protection Bureau may save thousands of children's lives every year by catching lead lined toys and other pleasantries, Senator Lindsey Graham wants you to know that it's actually "something out of the Stalinist Era." After all, Stalin is best known for all the children he saved or something.
- Majority Leader Eric Cantor put the breaks on a bill that would put a stop to the practice of Congressional insider trading, so Merry Christmas to corrupt Members of Congress.
- Kudos to whoever first spots what's wrong with this Fox News graphic about the unemployment rate in the comments:
