Jay tells us that the Health Care Reform passed by Congress has survived the first of many Constitutional challenges. I note Jay's post as opposed to the direct newspaper reporting because Jay shows exactly what Fair and Balanced *should* mean. (Also, I know it's goofy to post links to LitW, because anyone who reads here has already read over there.)
Also from LitW, Matthew Koehler shows us that wolves aren't the only reason that there are fewer trophy Elk out and about. Sometimes, the problem is wingnut poachers.
Since 4 & 20 Blackbirds is receiving spam regarding their rankings on the Great Gazoogle, I figured I'd do my part to help them out. jhwygirl has a terrific post concerning Montana's Right to Die statute, and the challenges it faces. If you only watch one YouTube video this year (as if) make it that one.
There has got to be something wicked weird about the water in Northwest Montana. Constitutionalists, militias and now this. An artist's work displayed in Loveland, Colorado apparently depicting Jesus getting a holy hummer. Some folks had a problem with that. So they protested. But it was a resident of Kalispell, Montana who came through for the win. Kathleen Folden 'martyred' herself, by violently critiquing the blasphemous piece ... with a crowbar. I thought the lunatics only came out at the full moon.
This one's for Eric. Bill Schneider at New West is always a great read. And he has a terrific article up about the NRA and Jon Tester. It shows pretty clearly that NRA does stand for National Republican Army. Tester's stands on firearm rights may not make him many friends among progressives, but he represents this gun owning liberal just fine.
Having apparently applied a salve to the deep wound given her by Robert Gibbs, Jane Hamsher (*THE* Professional Left and don't you forget it!) has posted a terrific analysis of how things may not be as dire for Democrats in November as the media would have us believe.
Nate Silver thinks it's still pretty dire.
Remember that Republicant freak out about Obama maybe having gotten foreign money donations? Yeah, about that ... IOKIYAAR.
Dead people been getting your money. YOUR MONEY! The Obama administration is attempting to stop such nonsense. So who's fault is it that DEAD PEOPLE ARE GETTING YOUR MONEY? Obama's, of course. Never forget. IOKIYAAR.
That's prolly enough for now. So I'll leave you with a laugh.
