Is there a single reason to keep Obama in 2012? I think not.
It may be hard for Lawrence O’Donnell to grasp, but Republicans are not running around America secretly leaving wire hangers inside woman’s closets with notes reading, “Try using this, baby killer!”
Miraculous GOP Turnaround Causes Michael Moore to Drop the Act and Ask Obama to Disenfranchise Wisconsin
Moore wants the federal government to forcibly prevent the certification of a state election and give the office to someone based strictly on her own, premature and entirely unofficial, declaration of victory?
Oh, and we’re not done with the onslaught of violence and vitriol on behalf of the unions and the educational establishment, either. The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports that Wisconsin resident Katherine Windels is now facing felony charges for death threats she made against state Republican lawmakers.
Not content to let Eric Alterman have all the fun of belittling Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN), Daily Beast writer John Avlon has joined the Bachmann bashing bandwagon, too. The Beast’s resident “extremism” hand-wringer is taking a more roundabout approach, suggesting that Bachmann is symptomatic of a broader radicalization of Minnesota, for which she and Gov. Tim Pawlenty “are going to have to answer for.”
Have you ever wondered how lefty talking head Eric Alterman can possibly argue that the media is biased to the right?

When it comes to military intervention, the buck stops at the commander-in-chief’s desk.
What’s Sarah Palin doing in Israel? It couldn’t possibly be principle….
For some reason, I thought George W. Bush left office in January 2009. Good thing we’ve got Anthony Weiner around to set us straight.
If it’s a day ending in “y,” that means it’s time for more crappy political advice from the Daily Beast’s Peter Beinart. Beinart’s kind of a one-trick pony on the subject—I’ve noted before how, no matter the situation, he advises Republicans not to govern like conservatives lest they face certain electoral doom (the right electoral strategy, coincidentally, happens to be to govern exactly like Peter Beinart would).
