Never in multiple universes and centuries would I ever think that I would be praising Rush Limbaugh, but holy shit… I am. Through all of the horrible reporting that had been going on after the horrible Boston Bombing, no one had apologized. CNN stood there and just moved on, not saying anything, not even a whoops or a dammit to show a screw up. The AP, who is essentially the media filter outlet that most news flows through, didn’t apologize nor recognize that they screwed up royal. FOX relied on CNN and their sources thus looking like asshats as well, but Rush Limbaugh… actually apologized for not checking and double checking sources… Oh. My. God.
The Tea Party, a weird assortment of angry republicans that refuse to get behind any representative that is willing to work with a democrat, namely Barack Obama, has founded itself on the connection to the Tea Party of the 1700’s. They were fighting tyranny! Right? That’s what they state at least. But in reality (something they tend to avoid) there is not just no connection between the two, but they are in fact absolutely opposite to the T.
It is Black Friday and everyone is out to get deals wherever they lie. It is honestly a fun day to go out with family and friends and enjoy the fruits of your labor, but it is a day that I (as a realist) get depressed about more than anything else. In light of both the Hostess bankruptcy and OURWalmart staging their walk-outs on Wal-Mart’s across the US, it makes me wonder why companies treat profits with more importance than workers?
Well it looks like unskewedpolls.com is going to have to eat crow. Adam Silver, the evil gay pollster who had Obama having a 96% chance of winning got it right again… for the third election series in a row (2008 and 2010). Everyone had banked on being so 50-50 with everything it was sick. I’ll even admit that my election map (which was 288-250 Obama) was relatively tame. Obama in nearly every poll and all major networks (including the now suicidal FOX News) has won and at this point in time is ahead be either 303-203 or 332-203, so either way an absolute landslide.
