Facing the musicDespite two absurd attempts to have petition signatures thrown out, Tea party Troy Mayor Janice Daniels will officially face a recall in November. Daniels, shown right with deejay Thayrone "your audio g-spot will now be massaged by the mink glove of soul" X, challenged the petitions based on corrections not being initialed by the circulator (not required) and because signers didn't include their zip code (also not required.)

Baby needs a new web serverSo, yesterday, LOLGOP broke the internet. More accurately, he generated so much traffic at Eclectablog with his piece "Your Affordable Care Act Rebate Can Save Lives" that he overloaded the servers at our web hosting company and they shut us down for several hours. So, we need to upgrade and it's going to cost about $600 per year to do that. That's the kind of thing we're asking you for donations for: to keep Eclectablog humming along flawlessly, even when one of our posts hits the front page of Reddit and is getting nearly 500 hits per minute (I'm not kidding.) You can make a donation using the oh-so-easy-to-use Paypal link after the jump.
WARNING: ObamaCare is a ticking time bomb that could go off and save millions of Americans from heartache and illness.
When I received mine, I was shocked. Aren’t I supposed to be paying you, Humana, more and more as I’m increasingly scared of using any service for fear of being branded with a preexisting condition? But no, it was an actual check for real cash money—enough to pay for most of month of coverage or a couple of co-pays. Nothing life-changing, of course. But a shock.…
Support your local bloggersIt's that time of the year again where we come to you, tip jar in hand, and ask you to support what we do here at Eclectablog. As most of you know, this is not a full-time gig for me, Anne and LOLGOP. It doesn't even come close to paying the bills. We do these fundraisers to help offset our costs for equipment, travel, and fees for various things we do. In exchange, we bring you regularly updated content, insightful commentary, liveblogging, exclusive reporting and magnificent photography. If you'd like to say "thank you" and help keep us doing what we're doing, you can do so after the jump.
I will gladly change my position Tuesday on an opinion I have todayBack in March, Romney adviser Eric Fehrnstrom made it clear that Mitt Romney was willing to reset his position at any given time, just like shaking an Etch-A-Sketch. Over the weekend, another Romney adviser made it even more clear that this concept also goes for anything at all that Mitt Romney has ever done, including when he retired from Bain Capital.
Americans for Prosperity hosts fake grassroots rally with Sarah Palin, pretends to be “non-political” – PHOTOS
So much anger, so much hate, so much astroturfYesterday, Americans For Prosperity held a fake grassroots rally in Belleville, Michigan near the Detroit Metro Airport. Around 400-500 tea party supporters and Sarah Palin fanatics showed up to bake in the hot sun to witness an event, dubbed "Kochstock" by LOLGOP, bought and paid for by the conservative group that bills itself as a non-political 501(c)(4) nonprofit group. This nonprofit status allows them to hide their donors and to sponsor these types of events around the country as long as they don't support a candidate. The result was a several-hour long anti-Obama, anti-Democrat hatefest where not a single Republican candidate got mentioned.
Sickening: Obama staffer dies tragically in Chicago OFA office, right wingers dance on his grave (Updated)
These people are sick and depraved29-year old Alex Okrent collapsed in a Chicago OFA office yesterday and died. Yahoo has the story HERE. What is taking place in the comments section of that story is enough to make you vomit. Some people are even insinuating that he was killed by the Obama campaign. I'll warn you that some of the comments (after the jump) are beyond the pale and extremely offensive.
Buy us a beer?
