Dumbed Down America – a New Low

America, one of your most popular television stations thinks you’re really, really stupid — and maybe you are.  This show premieres on TLC on Monday.

No, not in the morning so the kids can watch it while mommy and daddy are getting ready for work, but during primetime!

Unbelievable.

I hope for the sake of the country it fails.  If it doesn’t — wow — what a statement.

Obama — Get it Through Your Head: Everything’s Your Fault

Yo, White House — grow up.  It’s time to start laughing this stuff off:

President Barack Obama’s team wants the world to know his environmental policies had nothing to do with the rolling blackouts blanketing Texas this week.

White House Communications Director Dan Pfeiffer swung back late Friday at conservative media and lawmakers who have pinned the blame on Obama for the lights going off across the Longhorn State amid extreme cold temperatures and high winds.

The Electric Reliability Council of Texas, the lead regulatory agency in the region, says that weather was to blame for the mechanical failures at more than 50 power plants around the state.

When will Obama et al. get that he’s the new Clinton?  Wingers blamed Clinton for every, every, everything during the eight years Bush was in office. Obama’s the new guy for that.

Pro-Mubarak Demonstrations Tomorrow in Cairo

I’m watching Al Jazeera/English.  They are reporting that pro-Mubarak demonstrations are planned tomorrow in Cairo’s Tahrir/Liberation Square.

Ugh.

Pray for calm.

Hawaii Tours: Find Obama’s Birth Certificate

Inevitable:

This is the perfect tour for those who are interested in helping put an end to the mystery of whether or not President Obama’s birth certificate exists in Hawaii.

Travel arrangements will be made by our team of native Hawaiian tour guides, certified as some of the best on the Island. Activities include island hopping, volcano exploration, a visit to the Pearl Harbor Memorial, a 120-mile journey around the island of Oahu and a traditional luau at Paradise Cove. If the missing Presidential documents are to be found, these are the perfect tours to uncover them on.

Should be a hit with the WingNutOSphere.

Fish Swarm to Avoid Shark Attack

It’s break time folks.

It’s so cool the way fish swarm en masse when they’re in danger so they will appear as one large oganism.  Talk about working together:

The GOP Wants the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops to Come Between You and Your Doctor

This is the American Taliban at work folks, and I’m dead serious.  If this bill, the deceitfully named “Protect Life Act” passes, pregnant women won’t have a right to life in the United States anymore:

One hundred members of Congress (so far) have cosponsored a bill introduced by far right Congressman Joe Pitts (R-PA) called the “Protect Life Act.” (See if yours is one of them below.)

They want to “protect life” so much that they have written into the bill a new amendment that would override the requirement that emergency room doctors save every patient, regardless of status or ability to pay.  The law would carve out an exception for pregnant women; doctors and hospitals will be allowed to let pregnant women die if interventions to save them will kill the fetus.

[...]

In short: Fertilized eggs are people; women are not.

So, even if the “baby” is a mass of cells the size of a grape, doctors will be allowed to let a pregnant woman die if interventions to save her will kill it.

I have a feeling things are going to get really, really bad before they start getting better.  I just hope it doesn’t take 30 years like it did in Egypt.
