Dumbbell of the day

There was a time when we could get away with having an award for asshat of the week, but with the GOP in high gear, we're shifting to daily recognition. And with that, our inaugural Dumbbell of the Day award goes to Senator Buck Newton and his magnificent staff.

"It's not civil rights because you're not black"

That's rich, she has re-defined civil rights to conform to Justice Scalia's oft repeated contention that protecting the right of suffrage by all citizens is somehow a "racial entitlement".

Civil rights are those rights guaranteed to all citizens, period. One of them is equal protection under the law. If a particular group for any reason is being routinely denied those rights, legislation naming specific penalties for that can be passed.

I like the idea of daily recognition for the brainless wonders occurring on Jones Street these last few weeks. The daily dose is thorough, but Dumbbell of the Day is just too sweet to pass up, and quicker.

It's Really Not Surprising...

...when you work for this guy.

This could apply to all whites who want reproductive choice

If gay rights can be redefined as "special rights", than that's a slipperly slope to any rights that are not enumerated in the US Constitution.

Come to think of it, everybody is poor, too.
