- THINK FAST: You're the religious Republican Kansas Speaker of the House Mike O'Neal and you've just sent an email saying: "At last — I can honestly voice a Biblical prayer for our president! Look it up — it is word for word! Let us all bow our heads and pray. Brothers and Sisters, can I get an AMEN? AMEN!!!!!!", what Bible passage are you referring to? PSALM 109, which reads in part:
Let his days be few; and let another take his office / May his children be fatherless and his wife a widow. / May his children be wandering beggars; may they be driven from their ruined homes. / May a creditor seize all he has; may strangers plunder the fruits of his labor. / May no one extend kindness to him or take pity on his fatherless children.
- One Hundred Tea Party Leaders and Sarah Palin have endorsed Newt Gingrich, because as Sarah Palin explains, last night's interview with his ex-wife about how he tried to pressure her into an open marriage means "he's now going to soar even more."
- In contrast, Rick Santorum is touting the equally bizarre fact that the only woman he's ever sat on a couch with is his wife. Though that didn't stop his evangellical supporters from tricking Gingrich's evangelical supporters into thinking they were done for the day before having one last vote to endorse Santorum. So really, which one of them is more worldly?
- Supporters of Ron Paul caused a 4 mile traffic jam by flying a hot air balloon with his name on it over a South Carolina highway. I have nothing to add to that.
- Rush Limbaugh wants you to know that the Obamas are not "decent" or "average" Americans and that "there's a reason she is called Michelle Antoinette." He does forget to mention that that reason is that he keeps calling her that.
- Fox News makes a big deal about the fact that while it's editorial anchors like Hannity and O'Reilly are conservative, their straight news anchors are unbiased. So what did those unbiased straight news anchors get up to this week? Eric Bolling explained that, "I don't attack Obama the man, I attack Obama the socialist spewing policymaker." Chris Wallace thinks that Romney should run "ads about people who have lost their jobs in the Obama recession." And Gretchen Carlson wants to know "do you really care on this tax return issue?" And just to make sure you're depressed for the weekend, a new study shows, Republicans only trust Fox News.
