By popular demand, here's some more Moe. He's now 3 months old, 26 pounds, and about 6 inches taller. It's a good thing there happens to be a photographer living in the guest house, because... well...

...well, probably not. But this certainly caught my eye.
The Republican National Committee hosted a conference call on Friday morning, with Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell (R) and Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal (R) criticizing the Supreme Court's decision and vowing to continue to oppose Obamacare. Read below the fold...

So an insider has unceremoniously dumped a number of internal documents from the Heartland Institute, a Koch front group. And it's a doozy. People are making a fuss over the "controversy" based climate denialism, but that's so obvious, it's not what intrigued me. Read below the fold...

Not to toot my own horn, but I've been accepted to medical school for next August. :)
Anywho, I'd like to make a regular feature out of my experience as a student, at least to the extent that any of it relates to politics. More to come on that later.
For now, a quick anecdote about Occupy NOLA and a nearby homeless clinic that I volunteer at. Read below the fold...

Maybe it's just me, but something seems hinky at NYTimes.com. Well, not just them; I haven't caught a single mention of Sean Hoare's conveniently timed death in the American media.
Anyway, a picture is worth a thousand words:
Re-he-heally? Okay, how about today?

I'm sure you all recall the early days of the NSA
Hoovering up all domestic data warrantless wiretapping scandal, when they referred to it as the "Terrorist Surveillance Program" and assured us that they were only targeting Al-Qaeda operatives.
Naturally, this turned out to be a
lie enhanced duplicity technique, because it turns out they were spying on all of us everyday American citizens. Nobody was off the target list, and we were all potential Al-Qaeda operatives. Read below the fold...

Via ThinkProgress, G. Gordon Liddy on Sotomayor:
LIDDY: Let’s hope that the key conferences aren’t when she’s menstruating or something, or just before she’s going to menstruate. That would really be bad. Lord knows what we would get then.
Nice. I wonder what former Justice Sandra Day O'Connor and current Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg think about that? Read below the fold...

So, as far as I can tell, Rep. Jane Harman [D-Ca] was conspiring with the Israelis to drop some spy charges in exchange for some lobbying on her behalf, and Alberto Gonzales had an NSA warrantless wiretap™ (wait for it) on her phone and overheard the deal. Read below the fold...

So, there will probably be some silly incoherent right-wing protests in the future. There is a very real danger, though, that they won't have such an LOL-worthy rallying cry as "Teabag the White House!!11". Well, we need to get out in front of this, gang. I propose that all evil ACORN infiltrators make the following sign, to be used where/whenever wingnuts and cameras come together:
After You Teabag... DVDA!

A Statesville man died after being shocked multiple times by Tasers at the Iredell County jail over the weekend, sources say.
Anthony Davidson, 29, was unresponsive when he was taken to Iredell Memorial Hospital Saturday afternoon. He was put on life support and died late Sunday night, police said. Read below the fold...
