The measure of a man
Posted by Jill | 5:19 AM
Two men. One with a heart and a soul...

...and one without:
From the moment Mitt Romney stepped off stage Tuesday night, having just delivered a brief concession speech he wrote only that evening, the massive infrastructure surrounding his campaign quickly began to disassemble itself. Aides taking cabs home late that night got rude awakenings when they found the credit cards linked to the campaign no longer worked.

This should surprise no one. Willard RMoney TOLD us he likes to be able to fire people who provide services to him:

We dodged one hell of a big bullet Tuesday night.

Seamus was not an anomaly; this is how he treats everyone not named "Romney." Imagine what firing the rest of us would have looked like.

Meanwhile, back at the Outrage Corral
Posted by Jill | 10:30 PM
I can't believe that people who are out of work, scared about their jobs, on the bring of foreclosure, and terrified about their future, are eager to give the keys to the kingdom back to guys like John Kyl:
Sen. Jon Kyl of Arizona, the Republican whip, argued that unemployment benefits dissuade people from job-hunting "because people are being paid even though they're not working."

Unemployment insurance "doesn't create new jobs. In fact, if anything, continuing to pay people unemployment compensation is a disincentive for them to seek new work," Kyl said during debate over whether unemployment insurance and other benefits that expired amid GOP objections Sunday should be extended.

"I'm sure most of them would like work and probably have tried to seek it, but you can't argue that it's a job enhancer. If anything, as I said, it's a disincentive. And the same thing with the COBRA extension and the other extensions here," said Kyl.

Maybe it's time for Arizona to start thinking about "rightsizing" John Kyl. Tonight on Countdown, Chris Hayes, looking like a Delta pledge after a particularly rough night, said it all:

We are all lazy, shiftless welfare queens now.

And this fuckwad is likely to be the next Governor of New Jersey

Yes, let's not cover mammograms for young women with a family history of early-onset breast cancer, because it's "an exception":

And let's not cover testicular cancer either, because it's "an exception."

Look, I know that Jon Corzine has been ineffectual and unable or unwilling or not interested in reining in the rampant corruption that is endemic to the state Democratic Party. But I don't see how nominating a heartless ghoul like the pantload that is Chris Christie is going to solve anything.

(UPDATE: Marcy Wheeler talks about her own experience as "an exception" in the current health care system.)
