Meet Congressman-Elect Joe Walsh

He's for cutting people off unemployment insurance (LAZY PHOKKS), while extending tax cuts for these guys and these guys and these guys (the deserving rich). Thanks, Tea Partiers, for bringing us your not-treading-on-me brand of freedom!

This might be why Fox "News" is OK with Glenn Beck comparing everybody to Hitler

Roger Ailes, NPR executives and #NPRgoesNazi

After a day of negative commentary over Roger Ailes' comparison of NPR executives to Nazis, the Fox News executive has apologized to the Anti-Defamation League, Politico reports.

"I was of course ad-libbing (well, of course... we understand... Ed.) and should not have chosen that word," Ailes wrote in a letter to Abe Foxman, ADL's national director. "but I was angry at the time because of NPR's willingness to censor Juan Williams for not being liberal enough."

But if NPR executives are sitting around expecting an apology, well, that would be just so Goebbels of them.

@ChiTribRogers: Still Brain-Dead

Lunkhead @ChiTribRogers still thinks W-L record for starting pitchers is more important than ERA, WHIP, IP, K's etc.

This just in: Cubs-shillin' Drool Cup Phil is also for the Ricketts' plan to fleece the state, which is already bankrupt and shit.

This is your brain on cheese

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Prosecutors say a rural Wisconsin man blasted his TV with a shotgun after watching Bristol Palin's "Dancing with the Stars" routine, sparking an all-night standoff with a SWAT team.

According to court documents, 67-year-old Steven Cowan became enraged while watching Palin dance on Monday evening. He felt Palin was not a good dancer.

He went to his bedroom and returned to the living room with a shotgun and blasted the TV, then pointed the gun at his wife, who managed to escape and call police. Tactical officers surrounded the house and finally managed to talk Cowan out Tuesday morning.

He has been charged second-degree reckless endangerment, a felony punishable by up to 10 years in prison and $25,000 in fines. It was unclear whether Cowan has retained an attorney.

May the Goat Curse continue to work...

The Ricketts family is against “wasteful government spending” unless it helps make them rich

It's funny that Joe Ricketts is so passionate against “wasteful government spending” when his family, led by son, Cubs Chairman Tom Ricketts, has just asked the people of Illinois to borrow $300 million in a bond offering so that it can rehab Wrigley Field. This request follows a vote in Mesa, AZ which guaranteed the Cubs $84 million in public funds to build a new spring training stadium and facility.
