Today’s Briefs: September 26, 2012

  1. In spite of all the stupidity dripping off Missouri’s US House-candidate, Republican Todd Akin, he hit this one right on the nail: ‘You want to talk to me “write me a decent check”.’ That’s what he told a constituent when he asked Akin what the best way to talk with a congressman is. Akin was simply expressing the attitude of every politician out there today, regardless of Party. And, as we all know, the bigger the check, the more intense he listens.
  2. Although the main-stream media will always deny their partisan reporting, they’ll never recover the overwhelming majority who distrust them until they stop being partisan. And this story is a perfect example. In several cases, local CBS stations ignored federal laws by airing false ads by Republican candidates, but adhered to the law when a Democratic candidates’ ad is false. All that’s required is for the Republican candidate being attack to challenge the stations’ legal responsibility. Naturally, the same stations defend or ignore challenges by the Democratic candidates.
  3. Mittens, Mittens, Mittens! You just can not suppress your disdain and outright contempt for the working class, can you? No one but you would invite a school teacher to a sit-down roundtable discussion, proceed to insult her by saying how disgusting she and her profession was, slam her union and then tell her to shut up when she tried to defend. And you and your privileged wife wonder why the majority of citizens don’t like you any more than you like them.
