And some of ’em even run for (and get elected to) office...

New York Mayor Bloomberg:

[New York] is a city that people [who] would want to take away our freedoms gravitate to and focus on.

A plank I can heartily endorse

Looks like Bill’s pomeranian has a rival.  And I like the way she thinks:

:Zucca stands strongly in favor of restoring the 4th Amendment.  Zucca feels that the widespread, indiscriminate use of police tactical teams leads to unneccessary death and wholesale violation of citizen rights.  Zucca stands in opposition to trigger happy goons who shoot the dog first and ask questions later.   Zucca proposes a bright line test for the use of police tactical teams.  Any incursion into a house where a dog of average intelligence cannot determine if the intruders are police or criminals is wrong and should be punished.  Zucca believes that the only time a police tactical team should engage in a high risk entry is to rescue hostages.  Otherwise they should cordon off the area and talk the suspects out.  Any police officer who shoots a dog without reasonable justification should be jailed.
There’s more truth than humor here.  Sad Infuriating, isn’t it.

Because they *really* don’t want *any* cuts...?

Republican FAIL  Dept
RASMUSSEN BUDGET POLL: 60% Say Cut Everything. "Only 28% want any program spared.”

UPDATE: Reader Chris Hauser writes:
Looking at the Republican side, WHY has not a SINGLE Presidential candidate embraced this as the foundation of their platform: an across-the-board cut of such-and-such percent on EVERYTHING?...


More Republican FAIL:

More taxes: *Exactly* why we voted for the Republicans in 2010, right...?

Republican FAIL  Dept
Hot Air:
Forty House Republicans sign letter encouraging Super Committee to consider new revenues raising taxes
(fixed it for ’em!)

Steven LaToruette [RINO-OH]:
...said if he had a nickel for every one of the Republicans who said they supported the letter’s goal but feared how [Americans for Tax Reform President Grover] Norquist would react, "I’d be rich and retired, and we’d have 200 signatures on the letter.”
Good. If we can’t inspire them with love, then paralyze them with fear!  Oh, let’s and remember to give Mr. LaTourette his retirement wish in 2012, too.
