A long Open Letter to Conservative Americans from American Dad…

Are you a Conservative Republican who has lost his or her perspective on life and the Party? Here’s the first paragraph of a terrific TPM aricle :

Dear Conservative Americans,

The years have not been kind to you. I grew up in a profoundly Republican home, so I can remember when you wore a very different face than the one we see now.  You’ve lost me and you’ve lost most of America.  Because I believe having responsible choices is important to democracy, I’d like to give you some advice and an invitation.

Now go HERE and read the rest.

Joan Walsh has a great column in Salon…

Here’s a clip from it, but go in and read the whole thing. Then decide for yourself if Eric Cantor is lying to get back at Democrats…

Eric Cantor’s phony victim story
Did House GOP Whip Eric Cantor just become 2010’s answer to Ashley Todd, the white McCain supporter who claimed she was assaulted by a black Obama backer in October 2008?
You remember the story: A 20-year-old McCain-Palin volunteer told Pittsburgh police that a black man robbed her, and then, when he saw a McCain bumper sticker on her car, he beat her and carved a B – for “Barack” — into her cheek, and told her she better support the black Democrat. Days later, the clearly disturbed Todd confessed that she made up the attack, and apparently mutilated herself to provide “evidence.”
No one’s accusing Cantor of shooting up his own office, but from the minute he made his claim — also implying he was targeted because he was Jewish — it was almost certain to be untrue. In the very first AP report on the incident, the Richmond police  said the bullet had been fired into the air, not through Cantor’s window.
