When it comes to legislation, we don't need QUANTITY, numbskull! We need QUALITY.

Lol - and that is not quality?? lol

 The truth about Ryan. Never trust a republicon sponsored campaign ad. And don't trust NPR for a fair and balanced report in finances.

I would just like to point out that "Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan" anagrams to "My ultimate Ayn Rand porn."

Obviously a sign of the Ayntichrist.

I saw this rather interesting story at The Daily Beast today. It is an interview with Brigham Young's great great grand-daughter, who, at the age of 55, left the Mormon Church. Her decision was based primarily on the treatment of women within the Church.

Glad you posted Riley...

Sue Emmett expresses her opinion ...and says we shouldn't vote for Mitt Romney because of Romney's difficulty connecting with people, Emmett blames it largely on what she calls “the entitled Mormon male syndrome"

Actually, I wouldn't vote for Mr Romney if Woodrow Wilson was running...but since he isn't... I need half-witted sociological explanations from someone who hints at her OWN entitlement to counsel and exhort ...as "Brigham Young's great-great grandaughter."

The notion that there's an "entitled Mormon male syndrome" that hinders men of the LDS faith from connecting with people... is a notion worthy of laughter. Sue Emmett's great, great grandfather is testament to the contrary. Maintaining organization and preserving order ...while conveying a persecuted people halfway across the continent...and presiding over exponential growth of a religious denomination in an unwelcoming national milieu... is not a success carried out by an individual who has problems "connecting" with people.

Stereotyping Mormon men can be amusing diversion...mea culpa...but citing them for inability to connect is confirmation of Sue's long residence under a toadstool. Was she actually raised in an LDS enclave...or is she another media Mormon...sterteotyping for enertainment and pigeonholing for a nation that loves formula preconceptions of unconventional fraternities and faiths?

I can think of a hundred reason why not to vote for the gentleman. The inglorious and renowned "Mormon male syndrome" isn't one. Mitt is NOT a stock, true to type Mormon boy. If you believe so, brothers and sisters, Sue won't be lonely under the toadstool.

Anything happening in the political world that isn't a foregone conclusion?

Thank you for posting the story about the Tax Policy Center "study" right after my comments on it and the "mainstream" media's reporting of it. I seldom get, but always appreciate, such immediate confirmation of what I just posted.

El Cap,

The "glaringly obvious" solution is what? That incomes don't rise unless the top 1% rises more? That if the top 1%'s income rose less, that everyone else's would rise more? That taxing the 1% more would help the economy? All are glaring non-sequiturs. What's the obvious conclusion?

"What's the obvious conclusion?"...

That we're pretty much FUKED no matter how you slice it...

From TGT's link upthread about former Obama campaign co-chair introducing Paul Ryan:

Davis, who said in May he was switching parties from Democrat to Republican, said he had only disagreed with Ryan on one subject: the status of Led Zeppelin as the "#1 band of the modern era."

"I questioned you as you said it. As a Genesis man, I questioned it," Davis said.

That says pretty much all you need to know about his judgement.

Not that LZ is undisputedly the best, but Genesis? ACK!

Probably just doing the republican win-over-the Christian-vote thing - that's one thing they're good at.

Genesis - The Land of Confusion, written during the Reagan presidency, apparently with The Gipper and Nancy in mind.

I've tried to stay out of the political threads but I could just not let this one go unnoticed here. I wanted to add to the chorus laughing at Ryan's admiration of Ayn Rand. Check out this article on when she was young and was a devoted fan of a well known serial killer. I shat you knot!!

It’s hard to say whether this double standard reflects cognitive dissonance, the rank hypocrisy of the opportunist, or the corroding power of ideology on the critical faculties. Something must explain why lib/progs think waterboarding a terrorist is a crime against humanity, while obliterating the terrorist and the family around him with a drone is okay. Something must explain why Ann Romney’s $900 shirt makes her an out-of-touch plutocrat, while Michelle Obama’s $6,800 J. Mendel jacket evokes breathless encomia to her style. Something must explain why the media decried a planned Republican ad about Obama’s factual ties to racist reverend Jeremiah Wright, while the aired Democrat ad linking Romney to a woman’s death by cancer earns a mainstream media shrug. Something must explain why critically questioning Christianity and its doctrines shows intellectual bravery, even though such criticism has been going on for over two centuries and is risk-free, while doing the same thing to Islam is Islamophobic hate speech rather than true intellectual daring.

We may never know why this contradiction inhabits the lib/prog mind, but one thing we do know: it’s not liberal and it’s not progressive in any meaningful sense of those words. So anyone have a suggestion for what we should call it?
