Since 2008 – Progress Through Politics


  1. alyssa chaos

    saw this on daily kos earlier today

    its a torture timeline, putting statements,memos and stuff into order. it summarizes everything really good.

  2. Here’s what’s on my mind.  Republicans claim Obama is an islamofascistterroristliberalcommie but are mad that he’s against torture and invading other countries just for the smell of it.

    But hey, even Fox News has the Prez at 62%!!

  3. Illiterate tundra farmers with bilateral frostbite are more educated than Ms. Bachmann.  Tube worms living around deep sea vents are more intellectually nimble.  Cattle chewing their cuds while watching passing trains are more mentally flexible and curious about their surroundings.

    Thinkprogress has this

    Bachmann: CO2 ‘is a natural byproduct of nature.’

    On the House floor on Earth Day, April 22, 2009, Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) argued that threat of manmade global warming doesn’t make any sense because “carbon dioxide is a natural byproduct of nature”:

    Hydrochloric acid is naturally occurring as well, Ms. Bachmann.  We all have it in our stomachs and could not live without it. Hydrochloric acid is a very small part of the environment, but if we started producing it in quantity and spraying it on everyone’s lawns that might not be good.

    Why do I always get the mental image of a madman arguing with a fire hydrant when I think of Bachmann?

  4. I’m covered in filth. I just spent some time reading diaries and comments on townhall. One about how the bombings of the last few days in Iraq are Obama’s fault. Not one of the comments mentioned the fact that we have to be out by a set date per the Iraqi government and the Status of Forces Agreement Bush signed. Another diary dealt with the proposed changes to the student loan program. It’s amazing how they can twist and squirm trying to justify giving money to private companies instead of giving the money directly to the students. Talk about wanting to waste government funds. This would actually save money, yet they see it as a sign of O’s profligate spending.

    Appeals court rules Gitmo detainees are not “persons”

    Oh. And this came from OBAMA’S DOJ — that’s the part that’s just hit me like a sledgehammer upside the head. WTF???

    Read the comments on that article, too. Did Obama know about this? Or has he somehow been replaced while we weren’t looking by one of “them”….?

    I hope somebody does a diary on this, because this is deeply disturbing, and I’m just praying there’s some sort of rational explanation, or some missing piece that wasn’t reported.


  6. Spring has sprung around here. The temperature has been way over average for the last couple of days. The extremely unseasonable warmth brought some storms with it. The warm, wet weather made me think of mushroom hunting, which is a popular pastime in the Upper-Midwest. The thought of some tasty wild mushrooms inspired me to do a little recipe searching. Talk about counting your morels before you find them. 🙂 I came across this recipe and decided it was too good to keep to myself.

    Morel pie


    1 pre-baked pie shell brushed with Dijon mustard and sprinkled with grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese

    1/4 lb. butter

    1 Vidalia or another type of sweet spring onion, julienne

    1/2 lb. cleaned morels (or more if you want)

    1/2 tsp. thyme

    1 cup grated Parmigiano

    2 cup cream

    2 whole eggs lightly beaten

    salt and pepper

    1 cup cracker crumbs

    Directions: Line the pie shell with foil, weight with dry beans, and pre-bake shell at 350°F until edges are light brown. Remove foil and beans and brush crust with mustard, sprinkle with cheese and put back in oven until cheese just melts.

    Melt butter in large sauté pan, add onions, and cook until onions are soft on low to medium heat. Add morels and cook until soft and half the juice is reduced. Add thyme, cream, and cheese. Bring to a simmer, then slowly add egg mixture. Salt and pepper to taste.

    Pour mixture into pie shell top with cracker crumbs and bake at 350°F until top is brown and custard is set. Let cool, cut into 6 pieces and serve with a salad or fresh asparagus.  

  7. Greetings to our friends and supporters!

    As you may know, Governor Palin has been facing continuous frivolous and petty attacks from her opponents.  These

    baseless attacks have led to more than half million dollars in legal debt for the Governor and her family.

    This is the official site for the Governor Sarah Palin legal expense fund:

    Thank you for your continued interest and support.


    Have you sued Sarah Palin today?
