Conservative radio show host says nuns should be “pistol whipped”, Rep. Tom Latham cracks up laughing

Really? You went THERE?

Conservative Iowa radio talk show host Jan Mickelson says that a group of nuns that are currently on a bus tour to lobby against the Paul Ryan plan should be pistol whipped.

When he did so, his guest, Republican Congressman Tom Latham, could hardly control his laughter.

In fact, he didn’t.

Romney’s past says everything you need to know about how he’d govern & who he’d represent as president

Romney’s past says everything you need to know about how he’d govern & who he’d represent as president

Not just the past — the past WEEK

It hasn’t been a good week or two for Mitt Romney. His past, which he seems to think nobody will look at, think about, or care about, is beginning to catch up with him.

Between his record as a failed job-creator as a governor and a successful jobs-destroyer as a businessman as well as a rare glimpse at just who he will be beholden to if he is elected, Mitt Romney has a severe and awesome image problem to overcome.

One I doubt that he will.

Much, much more after the jump.

Please Allow Me to Introduce Mitt Romney

Please Allow Me to Introduce Mitt Romney

What Democrats learned from 2004 Here’s the bad news: While the American economy is still doing better than the most of the industrialized world, it’s still a bummer. You know the private sector is doing quite well compared to the public sector. If the GOP hadn’t forced layoffs of more than 600,000 workers in the public sector, the unemployment rate […]

3 Things to Tell Anyone Considering Voting for Mitt Romney

3 Things to Tell Anyone Considering Voting for Mitt Romney

I know it’s hard to believe but Romney voters are out there. The key thing is to not argue with them. Arguing often makes people defend a position they don’t actually have. So I suggest you just say this: Well, things are much better off now than they were when Bush left them. 27 months of creating jobs. We’re out […]

EPIC FAIL: Troy Tea Party Mayor Janice Daniels tries (& fails) to challenge recall petitions on font size

You’re kidding me, right?

Troy Tea Party mayor Janice Daniels (R-Cuckoo for Cocoa Puffs) is facing a recall challenge. What has flown under the radar is that, on June 18th, she challenged the petition signatures gathered for her recall based on — wait for it — FONT SIZE!

Her challenge was both comical and, thankfully, an epic failure.

INTERVIEW: David Cobb from Move to Amend and info on his several Michigan appearances this week

Abolishing corporate personhood and getting money out of elections is a principle, not an “issue”

The national organization/movement Move to Amend is working to amend the U.S. constitution to abolish corporate personhood that gives corporations constitutionally-protected civil liberties and to get money out of elections by ensuring that money is no longer viewed as constitutionally-protected speech. David Cobb is one of the chief spokespersons for the Move to Amend effort and currently on a national speaking tour that stops in Michigan this week.

Details about the Michigan leg of David Cobb’s trip (including information on his presentation THIS FRIDAY IN ANN ARBOR) and my interview with him after the jump.
