Republican War on Working Families… the new Ad in Wisconsin:

Thanks to Bold Progressives.

Cheers for Steve Jobs…

…who appeared today unexpectedly (he’s on medical absence at Apple) to present the new iPad.

Steve said:

“We’ve been working on this product for a while and I didn’t want to miss today.”

…and I, for one, am glad he didn’t.

Quote of the Day – Will Defense Secretary set up No Fly Zone over Libya?

Responding to Congressional questions about establishing a “no-fly zone” over Libya, Secretary Robert Gates said it would first require attacking Gadhafi’s government.

“Let’s just call a spade a spade: A no-fly zone begins with an attack on Libya to destroy the air defenses.”

He added that the operation would require more warplanes than are on a single U.S. aircraft carrier. The United States is moving naval and air forces closer to Libyan shores and has called for Gadhafi to give up power immediately, but that’s as far as it goes at this point.

So… how would you like another mid-east war? Doesn’t look like Gates wants it.

Is Huckabee an Idiot or a Liar?

I won’t get into Huckabee‘s Kenya/Mau Mau comments on Obama, nor his “spokesman” stating that Huckabee “misspoke” (may be that was a “Misspokesman”) and really meant Indonesia (which had no Mau Maus)… you’ve heard enough of this on all the news networks and other blogs (if you haven’t you can check out Yahoo News).

What I am concerned with is  such a statement coming from one of the Republicans who seemed to be somewhat more reasonable than the others.

If he was thinking about running for President, this wasn’t the smartest mess to get into. However, I don’t imagine that the Southern State Repubs will give a damn about this.

I’d hope that Huck isn’t a Liar. Since he does believe in a 6000 – year – old world created by God in seven days (Creationism), I’d vote for Idiot.
