Heard any good rants lately?

Obama is also half white — and culturally mostly white — and friends and backers — mostly all white.
But the poor are white as well. This is class warfare.
He’s been hitting it out of the park lately. Fantastic!
I have so many links to righteous rants — this one is very good — a business woman

You’ve got to read some of these #ImMadAsHellBecause tweets. There’s amazing energy out there.
He’s had this up on # all day.

I’m in a ranting mood tonight since the Red Sox are losing and we all know what that does to my mood swings.
Ed Schultz is also on a rant, poking Obama for not coming to WI and at least showing some interest in that crucial recall vote. You can tell that Ed is sick to death of President Indifferent when he highlighted the press conference today with Jay Carney who admitted to a reporter who had stayed up all night waiting for the WI results that he had no idea if Obama had been following the results there.
Which means we are truly royally f*cked to put it mildly. How can this man who will rely on those votes in 2012 be so indifferent to his base? Unless he actually believes that the clowns from the other side will be so ineffective during the course of the campaign that the nation will have no other choice but to vote him back in again. And that is a huge mistake since most of the people he needs to attract have very short attention spans and all they need are a few glossy ads to encourage them to vote for the other guy. He should know this since that is exactly how he came to power in the first place.
I don’t watch tv — only video clips via Internet. First time I’ve heard Al Sharpton — thumbs down on him. Worst ever anchor.
This quote is perfect (from Bruce Dixon):
That is exactly why I can’t take these guys seriously. March 2012 will come around, and it will be all about “Booga Booga! Mitt Romney is a racist!” Yawn.
Except it will not be Mitt Romney.
I don’t think it’ll be Romney either. I dunno who, but not him.
As for the professional Democrats, they need to grow some spines. Enough is enough.
This is what Rachel covered on her show tonight. Some of these people give the truly insane a bad name. One of the pastors she presented spoke of the Emperor of Japan have sexual intercourse with a “harlot goddess” which brought about the recent tsunami. Another nutjob also pointed out that the actual “harlot goddess” is none other than Oprah Winfrey! I kid you not.
These are the people behind the Rick Perry for President campaign. Droolers!
Here is something else from Maddow blog: The Maddow Blog – An abbreviated “They’re Not Embarrassed” Hall of Fame
Madcow is one 0bot I avoid — I don’t think she has ever been apologetic for being so stupid.
I adore Senator Sanders!!
Great selection of righteous rants. Thanks! During Bernie’s spiel I murmured, ‘Man, will he marry me? Or maybe run for President or something?’ My partner’s head shot around and he gazed at the old man on the screen, then stopped worrying. Hehehehehe.
