We missed the press release from Trump, Palin, and Hoekstra demanding Romney come clean with his long-form birth certificate. Maybe they sent it to the wrong address? I’d just hate to think that this four-year-long muckraking quest for more documentation of the President’s place of birth was all just a cynical race-baiting ploy or something. — Mitt Romney released his birth certificate yesterday, in advance of his summit with Donald Trump. We sort of felt like that warranted a rant. (via motherjones)

Koch Brothers, Allies Pledge $100 Million At Private Meeting To Beat Obama

Nobody is surprised by this.

“This country is bankrupt; all great nations go down because they extend themselves overseas. …let’s defend this country, and stop pretending we can tell other people how to live!”

Ron Paul, calling for less foreign military involvement, and a rededication to strict, domestic military defense.

He’s a racist, homophobic, sexist piece of trash, and he’s probably either crazy or stupid… but he’s the only Republican on the field right now that I could support to any degree. If Romney or Gingrich or Santorum wins the Presidency with the Congress we have now, then we won’t have a nation by the next elections. Ron Paul might set us back to the Dark Ages, but he wouldn’t completely flush the country down the drain. And then, once he’s out, we can elect someone smart and modern-minded to repair the damage he caused. If it’s Mitt or Newt or Rick, there won’t be anything to repair.

I want to vote for Barney Frank, or Sherrod Brown. I’ll take Obama if that’s what’s on the menu.
