Friday Nite Lites: Oh, the Mitt hit the fan…part one

Good evening!

Yes, Mitt was hitting everyone the other night with lying turds a plenty. Unfortunately, Obama didn’t even call him out! Pathetic. So, as you would expect tonight’s editorial cartoons will be primarily on the debate. The first one I must share with you is my absolute favorite, and you can be certain I laughed my ass off!

  1. Hey, all you folks who live near this area of California, Edison Con? San Onofre Nuclear Plant Owner Proposes Reactor Restart | MyFDL

    Southern California Edison (SCE), the operator of the troubled San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station (SONGS), has proposed to restart one of the facility’s two damaged reactors without repairing or replacing the parts at the root of January’s shutdown. The Thursday announcement came over eight months after a ruptured heat transfer tube leaked radioactive steam, scramming Unit 3 and taking the entire plant offline. (Unit 2, offline for maintenance, revealed similar tube wear in a subsequent inspection; Unit 1 was taken out of service in 1992.)

    But perhaps more tellingly, Edison’s plan–which must be reviewed by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission–was issued just weeks before the mandated start of hearings on rate cuts. California law requires an investigation into ratepayer relief when a facility fails to deliver electricity for nine months. Support of the zombie San Onofre plant has cost California consumers $54 million a month since the shutdown. It has been widely believed since spring that Unit 3 would likely never be able to safely generate power, and that the almost identical Unit 2 was similarly handicapped and would require a complete overhaul for its restart to even be considered.

    I’m so glad you did a post tonight, JJ. You were right, that last one by Luckovich is great!

  3. I’m here for the funnies (sorta…I’ll be in and out!)

  4. pdgrey says:

    JJ, great funnies, of course the last one is my favorite but I love the 30 seconds for a zinger.

    • Beata says:

      I’m totally obsessed with saving Big Bird, pd. It’s difficult to focus on anything else.

    • dakinikat says:

      Yup. The Big Bird ones are the best. That line in his debate was just custom made for ridicule. We should let him debate Big Bird next time. I like the one from Luckovich with the threat of tying Miss Piggy to the car roof!!

  5. The one with Romney and the scissors is my favorite.

  6. pdgrey says:

    Ralph and I left some stuff below that we should know, Ralph’s link first
    “It’s been accepted as a given that the Romneys were never the types to fall in line with the church’s more extreme reactionary politics—and that Mitt’s father and “inspiration,” Gov. George Romney, was a “liberal” and a brave supporter of civil rights.”

  7. dakinikat says:

    Can we please do something about Scalia PLEASE?

    So Scalia parts company with former colleagues who have come to believe capital punishment is unconstitutional. The framers of the Constitution didn’t think so and neither does he.

    “The death penalty? Give me a break. It’s easy. Abortion? Absolutely easy. Nobody ever thought the Constitution prevented restrictions on abortion. Homosexual sodomy? Come on. For 200 years, it was criminal in every state,” Scalia said at the American Enterprise Institute.

    He contrasted his style of interpretation with that of a colleague who tries to be true to the values of the Constitution as he applies them to a changing world. This imaginary justice goes home for dinner and tells his wife what a wonderful day he had, Scalia said.

    So, I guess he must think that we should reinstate slavery and the ownership of married women by their husbands and reject the idea that the populace vote for senators.


    • Scott Beezlebub (ok Brown) thinks Scalia is the legal bees knees…but hey look over there, it’s Liz Warren’s maybe-Cherokee/maybe-not nose…let’s analyze it!

    • pdgrey says:

      Well, he’s Scott “look at her” Brown’ fav! And I can bet you “a 10,000.00” John Roberts next decision will be as crazy as ever. He just felt trapped because of what the Robert’s court will be looked back as. The Obama care ruling was so narrow it leaves open the civil rights ruling. Robert’s is as evil just keeping it secret.

    • This guy is such an asshole. How can he even call himself a judge when he is constantly shitting on Justice?

  8. pdgrey says:

    we are a country of just bat shit crazy people to elect some one like this.

  9. ANonOMouse says:

    JJ. you really hit a bunch of homeruns tonight. The first one and the last one were the best of the best. Love your devotion to laughter.

    Sound familiar?

    The Gish Gallop, named after creationist Duane Gish, is the debating technique of drowning the opponent in such a torrent of half-truths, lies, and straw-man arguments that the opponent cannot possibly answer every falsehood in real time. The term was coined by Eugenie Scott of the National Center for Science Education.
