Ah yes.  Another morning evening in America:  Police are looking for a gunman who fired nearly 30 shots Wednesday into a crowded DeKalb County park during a soccer game.

Bill O’Reilly Has No Beef with Jon Stewart?

From MediaFixBlog:

Bill, Bill, Bill.  You’re a legend in your own mind but that’s about as far as it’s gonna go.

Fox Suddenly Cares About How Much Wars Cost

One of the headlines on tonight is this: “How Much Does Afghanistan Surge Cost You?”  It includes a link to a “Taxpayer Calculator” which opens with the headline, “It’s All Your Money:”

Going back to the cost, Fox goes on about much the “surge” in Afghanistan (with some attention to Iraq) is costing YOU.

Folks, when George W. was in office nobody on Fox talked about how much he spent on surges or wars.  Nobody talked  about the deficit.  Period.

Fox wants you to think that what Obama’s doing is unprecedented, that it’s an aberration.  It isn’t.  Bush spent a whole lot of money too.

Tea Partiers claim they’re “waking up.” Yeah, so they might be but what’s really going on here is that Fox is finally telling them some truth so it feels to them like they’re waking up.

Why Will a “Substantial Number of Republicans” Support the Financial Reform Bill?

MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell is reporting tonight that a “substantial number” of Republicans are expected to support the “financial reform” bill that Senator Chris Dodd (D-CT) has crafted.  Why?  Because Republicans have decided that opposing “financial reform” is a losing proposition or because Dodd’s bill isn’t worth the paper it’s printed on?

We shall see.

Fox Fact: “Unemployment Benefits Making Job Seekers Lazy”

This graphic is up on FoxNation tonight:

Click on it and you go to a totally biased “report” from WPTV in West Palm Beach, Florida.  The, ahem, “journalist” interviewed one client and one case worker at one career placement office in one state and Fox makes a pronouncement that encompasses every unemployed worker in the country?

Playing to the Tea Partiers or what?  Them damn lazy assholes livin’ off our tax dollars!

Wow — Wow — Wow!

Drop everything and go to this site immediately:

At a press conference today in Washington DC, researchers unveiled “First Light” images from NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory, a space telescope designed to study the sun.

“SDO is working beautifully,” reports project scientist Dean Pesnell of the Goddard Space Flight Center. “This is even better than we could have dreamed.”

Launched on February 11th from Cape Canaveral, the observatory has spent the past two months moving into a geosynchronous orbit and activating its instruments. As soon as SDO’s telescope doors opened, the spacecraft began beaming back scenes so beautiful and puzzlingly complex that even seasoned observers were stunned.
