K2: The Return of Kerik

My friends,

Great stuff this beautiful morn re: Bernie Kerik. One stop, Xmas shopping at Talking Points Memo.

My favorite point from Marshall's blog:
And now we find out from the Times (and, truthfully, from the force of logic) that the nanny story, which has been the White House's first, second and third talking point all week, is probably totally bogus.

The Times found no evidence that such a woman ever existed. And even when pressed by people who suspect he made the whole story up, Kerik remains adamant in his refusal to provide any details whatsoever. It's very hard to read the Times story and not conclude that the whole nanny thing was a con.
Gee. Ya think?

Cheers,
Brando

The Kerikanator

You guys were asking about Bernie Kerik last night?

Great piece in the NY Post & Fish Wrap this morning...titled "BAD BERNIE'S LIVID MISTRESS: HE'S INSANE AND MANIACAL." Read the full article (re: Kerik's relationship with the Judith Regan) here.

For a cleaner, less Rupert Murdoch-y version of the story, check out this article in the NY Times.

They've finally moved off the nanny story.

Good times.

(Some asked last night, "Who cares who he slept with?" I do. If the folks on the other side of the aisle are gonna scream and yell about "moral values" and "godly behavior," we should out 'em and nail 'em everytime they slip.)

Creationism Watch!

An AP report in The Guardian today says that the ACLU is suing a Pennsylvania school board for introducing intelligent design in their ninth grade biology classes.

But then after doing a little more digging around, I found out on the Dover Area School District website that some unnamed fundamentalist donated 60 copies of the book "Of Pandas and People" to use as a "reference book in the curriculum".

Okay, besides the fact that it has a stupid title, "Of Pandas and People" has been kicking around since 1990 and pretends to be a legitimate science book, but really is just creation-science propoganda. You can read some info on it here.

So keep your eyes peeled for "Of Pandas and People", or... maybe it makes a nice Christmas gift! I hope they publish a coloring book version.

Liberals as TERRORISTS?!!!

OH MY GOD. You've GOT to be kidding me.

So, this total (expletive) nutbag, Cynthia Davis, State Rep. from Missouri was quoted in the NY Times today:
"It's like when the hijackers took over those four planes on Sept. 11 and took people to a place where they didn't want to go. I think a lot of people feel that liberals have taken our country somewhere we don't want to go. I think a lot more people realize this is our country and we're going to take it back."
This was in reference of why she feels her fellow nutbag legislators in Missouri will support two bills she pre-filed:
1) Remove the state's requirement that all forms of contraception and their potential health effects be taught in schools, leaving the focus on abstinence.
2) Require publishers that sell biology textbooks in their state to include at least a chapter on evolution.

Game on, people. Seriously, I'm absolutely furious. Talk me down, 'cause I'm thinking of driving over to her hick fucking town after I go to Little Rock and screaming in her stupid pasty face.
