R.I.P., Davy Jones

North Korea Obviously Wants Obama To Win the 2012 Election

Why else would they do this?

The United States announced a major diplomatic breakthrough with North Korea Wednesday.

Under an agreement reached in direct talks in Beijing last week, North Korea has agreed to allow the return of nuclear inspectors from the International Atomic Energy Agency, and has agreed to implement a moratorium on long-range missile tests, nuclear tests, and nuclear activities  at Yongbyon, including uranium enrichment activities, the State Department said. In return, the United States will provide North Korea with a large food aid package.

But seriously; this is a deal, maybe even a big one. Nevertheless, people should still be cautious.

Despite the stunning breakthrough, "the United States still has profound concerns regarding North Korean behavior across a wide range of areas," Nuland's statement cautioned, but added that "today's announcement reflects important, if limited, progress in addressing some of these."

Of course, if there's a similar announcement about Iran in four-to-five months, Mitt Romney (or whoever the nominee will be) may just want to forfeit.

I Don't Think Viginia Is For Lovers Anymore.

That's the only conclusion I can come too when you have a state where jamming a plastic medical device in a woman's vagina because she's considering an abortion seems like a rationale and necessary piece of legislation. Granted, they took out the probe, but they still passed the legislation.

And it's not helping their case that when experts are called in, men outnumber women by a ridiculous amount. Seriously, how can you have a discussion/debate where the topic involves a woman's body, and not have women speak on it? If the contraception flap from the last few weeks heard from every religion but Catholics, they'd be in an uproar (like the conservative ones have been, despite having the conversation revolve around their point of view).

Personally, I don't see how Gov. McDonald recovers from this; all someone has to do is call him the "vaginal probe candidate" and it's a wrap. And if this isn't enough, Virginia, the home of two Va Tech shootings in the last ten years, has decided that waiting a month between buying handguns is way too long. I sure hope some of these legislators are still around to see how this turns out.

Picture This: Who To Blame For Gas Prices

Why the Economy Isn't a GOP Clarion Call Right Now

The Standard & Poor's 500-share index on Friday finished at its highest point since 2008, extending a climb that began in November...


The S.&.P. closed at about 1,365 points, up 0.2 percent for the day. The last time it was higher was in June 2008, before the worst of the financial crisis.

There, is, of course one potential rain cloud that gives the Four Horsemen hope: 

Although the market has been rising, one growing concern is the price of oil, which has been driven higher by tensions over Iran and the weakening dollar. High oil prices could crimp the economic recovery in the United States.

Abridged Pollitics: the 2012 GOP Primary Candidates Arguments

I think we're far enough along in the 2012 Primary to know what the message each of the remaining candidates is trying to convey to the American people:

  1. Mitt Romney: Despite the fact that I'm ridiculously wealthy and belong to a religion that's as unpopular as Islam in my party, I'm just like the average joe. Ignore my past political compromising with Democrats except when you need to make an argument that I can attract independent voters. The only thing that truly sets me apart from the other candidates is that I was part of a very profitable business, which somehow translates to me being able to run the United States.
  2. Ron Paul: I've decided to adapt Obama's 2004 primary caucus strategy in a very disturbing way: make delegates change their minds after they had already selected a candidate on their state's designated night. I love the Constitution so much that I wish to fundamentally dismantle the government it created. Please ignore the fact that I'm a homophobic neo-isolantionist masquerading as a Libertarian pretending to be a Republican.
  3. Rick Santorum: Unless you are a hard-core conservative Catholic, fuck off.
  4. Newt Gingrich: People should ignore that when I was an OUTSTANDING Speaker of the House back in the 1990's Bill Clinton ate my lunch and drank my milkshake. Despite the fact that I left two wives for the most selfish of reasons, I am an UPSTANDING and morale political figure. While I try to come off as some INTELLECTUAL history professor, my ideas make me sound like some desperate, out-of-work science fiction writer. Every AWESOME word that comes from my GENIUS mouth highlights the EXTREMELY DIRE conditions I believe THE OBVIOUSLY UNAMERICAN Obama has put our OPTIMISTIC YET NAIVE country through. I love to use adjectives for EMPHASIS.

Josh Marshall's Bottom Line

Even if Mitt Romney lost his home state and the GOP panicked, there is no way a late-entry candidate will be able to out-spend him so any way you slice it, he's the GOP nominee.

Between going up against the sitting President and surviving a financial juggernaut that is the "Rmoney" campaign, I'm also assuming that any GOP dream candidates are waiting for a clean slate in 2016. After all, that's what most Democrats (like Hillary Clinton) did in 2008.

Either "Forced Marriage" or a "Ban on Premarital Sex"

These are basically the choices single people face in light on this war on contraception, and for women the consequences are more dire. Regardless of how people want to frame it, the bottom line is there are people who believe sex is solely for procreation and not recreation.

Another Day, Another Ultra-Conservative Is Outed As Gay

For Chris Matthews, Politics Is Sport

That's why he can give Pat Buchanan a send-off while claiming they've "driven each other up a wall" in the past. For Matthews, the pundits and politicians he has on are buddies and sparring partners; if they say or believe something controversial then it's just a trade-off of the business. His brand of journalism is better suited for sports than politics, but whatever.

I understand using the same director to continue a movie storyline; we've all seen movies that go (way) beyond the standard trilogy.

I understand bringing in someone new to helm a reboot; you want to use similar characters with a different twist and a fresh perspective is the best way to do that.

So, why, oh why, is Transformers doing a "reboot" with the guy who directed the first three films?!?!?
