Obama was in on it from the get go..

Call me a conspiracy nut, but i cant help but think that given the past few years of GOP obstruction that the President didnt chose to raise the debt ceiling before losing the house. When asked why, he responds that he thought the GOP would act "responsibly"...right

Shouldve not left that stone unturned mr. President...

Which only leads me to believe this whole crisis theater was either part of the plan, or the President is even more naive than we thought.

This debt deal must be filibustered!

Remember how Lieberman held up Healthcare? Bernie Sanders, and anyone else with cojones should do the same with this debt deal. Just stand firm. In the end , no one wants the US to default, so the worse case scenario you get is a clean raise. Come on Bernie!

Debt Dumbness.

95 killed today in Syria

It is probably wise to assume this is a right wing Christian cell of Norgen Oogen Blasten.

Then again, this won't raise any media attention whatsoever.

Golden Eye

Now that some numbers have officially been released, Kitty Carlyle can be calculated with a summary of the data.

I keep wanted to yell, "It doesn't have to be that hard!" to the US.

Origins Debate: A Biochemical Sketch

Thom:

I heard a bit of your talk with the Discovery Institute rep last Thursday. I'm a fan of your show and listen because you give opposing views a hearing and are generally polite.

What bugs me Thom, as an educated person who is scientifically literate with background in journalism and a liberal perspective, is hearing the origins debate repeatedly described as "Science versus Religion" or "The Bible versus Science," etc. ad nauseum.

Here's what the feud and reconciliation between John Adams and Thomas Jefferson can teach us about civility

Thom plus logo Donald Trump did not invent the art of the political insult but he's inflamed the level of vitriolic public discourse and incivility to a new low unmatched by other presidents. In a tainted tradition that has permeated our history, other presidents have not been immune to dishing out acerbic insults against one another.
