Things to Know - 25 February

1.  It is great that we have satire and comedy to bring up and have us face the ridiculous things that we do in the name of politics and public service.  It is also a tragedy that basic understanding and reasoning does not rule the agenda for common sense.  Case in point, read this article:

2.  Romney rents out Ford Field in Michigan to give his BIG campaign speech.   Yawza, yawza, yawza....65,000 seats.   Only 1,274 showed up, and most of those were probably campaign workers, reporters, and a few Mexican illegals who were grooming the field, and got included to run up the numbers:

3.  In order to balance out the Mormon's continuing practice of converting deceased Jews via LDS baptism to Mormonism, Stephen Colbert has (with the power vested in him) converted all dead Mormons to Judiasm:

4.  It is getting harder every day in trying to figure out if the utterances from Wannabee Santorum are gaffes or that is just the way he is mentally constructed.   It appears that it is in his inscrutable DNA…:

5.  Recall the Congressional committee that refused to allow a woman, any woman, to testify before them on the issue of women's health.  Following this rejection by the Republican group, the Democrats convened a pseudo-committee, and the testimony by one young lady from Georgetown University was heard.  The result of exactly what needed to be hear, and gave further embarrassment to the GeeOpee and the Republican Party.  There is no end dysfunction to the GOP:

6.  Charles Blow of the NY Times on how Romney did it again.  Another speech (to an empty football stadium) and then his ad-lib quips at the end and an unforgivable, and not one he can say he "mis-spoke" gaffe:

7.  Dick Cavett, in his own style, on the actions by others which give him acid reflux.  He saves his best for life style and closed-minded antics of Ricky Santorum:

8.  Bill Maher is not all that convinced that Obama's re-election is a sure thing.   He knows that after the GeeOpee convention, their nominee will get backed by loads and piles of Super PAC money from the fattest of the fat cat 1%.   That's why Bill gave $1 milllion of his own money to the Obama's Super PAC, and hopes it nudges richer Liberals to do the same:

9. Greg Rodriguez writes his opinion on why Arizona (starting with Tucson) have banned any ethnic studies programs.  It's probably like what you think it is:,0,6272987,print.column
