Arizona Legislator tied to Neo-Nazis

Russell Pearce, the Arizona state representative who is pushing through a bill to destroy Mexican-American studies and Chicano studies programs in publicly funded schools and colleges has Neo-Nazis among his political allies. So reports Steven Lemons of the Phoenix New Times.

Are pro-neo-Nazi values American values? Why of course they aren’t. So that means ol Russ is just plain un-American for encouraging such varmints. He should be stripped of his salary and legislative position tout de suite and returned to the wilderness of Mesa to dwell the rest of his days. Perhaps some waggish Democratic legislator could propose a law to ban Pearce and his ilk from the state capitol forever.


Steve Brodner Blows Us All Away

Found via the Daily Cartoonist, this clip of cartoonist Steve Brodner shows how wonderful traditional media can be. The watercolors are fascinating to watch. I couldn’t hear the audio, because my work station doesn’t have speakers. I imagine it’s insightful and witty. What else would it be?

Mr. Helpful

Man, if I were Hillary Clinton – currently riding high on a 10 point margin of victory in Pennsylvania – I would find a way to remove the tongue from my husband’s mouth. Because I (Hillary Clinton, that is) can’t really enjoy my hard-won win without Mr. Megaphone saying dumb crap like, say, accusing black Democrats of “playing the race card” on him and driving the black vote toward Barack Obama. Ya see, they totally took his comparison of Obama’s victory in South Carolina to Jesse Jackson’s the wrong way. He wasn’t making a racially charged, dismissive and douchebaggy comment; he was just answering a question. And, best of all, this was part of the Obama plan aaallll alooonngg!

UPDATE: Now The Master Equivocator is refusing to acknowledge he ever said anything about a “race card.” Dude, it’s on audio! WE CAN HEAR YOU! This is why the right wing thinks you’re on drugs, because you refuse to look reality in the face or take any responsibility for your words and actions. Man! That guy is a piece of work.
