Hi, i'm Stephanie. I'm a bleeding heart liberal with a soft spot for puppies, and i'm not ashamed of it. I love television but I hate the industry. Someday I'd like to work to change it.
i feel like this line repeats over and over in the heads of all republicans in congress.Grande Olde Pachyderm

Mitt Romney Quote
“I should tell my story. I’m also unemployed.” —GOP presidential candidate and former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney (R), speaking in 2011 to unemployed people in Florida. Romney’s net worth is over $200 million.
Newt Gingrich Quote
“There’s no question at times of my life, partially driven by how passionately I felt about this country, that I worked far too hard and things happened in my life that were not appropriate.” —GOP presidential candidate Newt Gingrich, explaining why he cheated on his first two wives. He carried on the first affair while his wife was suffering from cancer, and the second while he was busy orchestrating Bill Clinton’s impeachment.
Rick Perry Quote
“Texas is a unique place. When we came in the union in 1845, one of the issues was that we would be able to leave if we decided to do that. You know, my hope is that America and Washington in particular pays attention. We’ve got a great union. There is absolutely no reason to dissolve it. But if Washington continues to thumb their nose at the American people, you know, who knows what may come out of that?” —Texas Gov. and GOP presidential candidate Rick Perry, raising the prospect of Texas seceding while speaking to a reporter after a Tea Party rally, April 15, 2009
Nothing Crushes Us
The GOP is based on outdated morals and failed policies that have broken under the strain of time. I don’t think I could find a more accurate photo to describe it.
Are Republicans talking about jobs, climate change, the economy, health care, education…etc.?
The Republicans are concerned about birth control.
That’s the most pressing issue to the Republican Party in 2012.
Sadly the propaganda campaign launched in the 1960s has taken root. The radical feminists succeeded in undermining the traditional family and convincing women that professional accomplishments are the key to happiness.
They’re just good for heterosexual sex, making babies and cleaning up the house, right, Rick?
Amazingly, about half of half of the country is nonetheless prepared to vote for this spiteful dick.

For women, obviously birth control is not a religious topic: it’s a health topic, and 99 percent of women in America use it. And at Planned Parenthood, we provide birth control to millions of women every single year, so yeah — I think they’re kind of mystified by what the ‘controversy’ is all about.
…I think we’re seeing in this presidential primary this sort of, like, race to the bottom, where every presidential candidate on the Republican side is trying to say ‘I would be absolutely the worst for women.’
We begin tonight with Zeno’s Paradox, which postulates that to get your destination, you must first travel half the distance towards it, (and) from there, half the remaining distance, and so on, so on, ad infinitum, ipso facto, et al, ergo, vis a vis, c’est la vie, one can never actually arrive at the end point.
Which brings us to the race for the Republican nomination for president.JON STEWART, The Daily Show (via inothernews) BLOGGING via TYPEWRITER.
Rachel Maddow reports on the underhanded shenanigans of the Republican Party in Michigan.
Depending on how you look at it, the Bush economy was either okay, a bit weak or absolutely awful.
To make it look okay, you eliminate all context. You look at levels rather than trends. Unemployment was in the 5 to 6 percent range. The economy was growing. Deficits, though rising, were at manageable levels. The stock market was booming. Most Americans were living pretty well. That all sounds pretty good.
To make it look weaker, you add back in some context. Monthly job growth from March 2001 to December 2007 — so, from the end of the 2001 recession to the beginning of the 2007 recession — was 68,000. That’s one of the weakest expansions on record. Meanwhile, poverty and inequality were increasing even as median incomes were falling. Oh, and while Bush’s deficits weren’t huge, they came during a period of growth — normally, periods of growth are when you cut the deficit, as we saw in the 1990s. So these were deficits of an unusually irresponsible sort.
To make it look absolutely awful, you add in the fact that there was a huge credit bubble inflating beneath the economy that George W. Bush did nothing to stop and that his choice for Federal Reserve chairman, Alan Greenspan, did much to inflate. So as weak as the decade’s economic numbers look, they’re much, much worse when you realize they were artificially pumped up by the bubble, and Bush’s record is much, much worse when you add that the economic collapse began on his watch, and the long-term cost of the tax cuts and Medicare Part D and the war in Iraq.Klein: Yes, Bush’s economy was terrible (via kileyrae)
