Things to Know - 26 February

President Corporation

1.  Santorum is running because god told him to.  Some of other GeeOpie's claim the same divine mission.   God has to make up his mind, and settle on one, or maybe the question should be re-phrased in a different think?   How many other similarly inspired candidates have been presented before the voters in our history, and how many have bombed out? :

2.  Jonathan Alter, of the former Newsweek, is around, and I found this good piece.  It's about Romney's intellectual banrkuptcy - in that he knows what is right, but he lacks to the convictions to put them forth.  Instead, he says what he thinks has to be said at the moment:
  (actually Newsweek is still around - but not like it used to be)

3.  Time for U.S. History 101, and James Madison's contribution as one our "Founding Fathers".  Apparently the Tea Party goes overboard and neglects some of the salient points inserted into our Constitution, through the Federalist Papers, and completely ignores the Commerce Clause.   This has great bearing on what the individual states can and cannot do, and imposes a great influence on what has been the law of the land in the past, and how it should be interpreted on the issue of national health care.  This also give the Albany bureau a chance to fact-check and weigh in:

4.  The European perception of Rick have to read it here for yourself (that is why I send these out).  The best line is that..." promotes the dimmest dumbing down of a once great party".   Maybe one of these days that GeeOpie will once again attain the level of the Republican Party:

5.  Here is a bit of history on the phenomena of birth control, and how it has turned into a political football by the right-wing.  It is something that the GeeOpee is stuck with now, and is going to be part of the inflexible and selfish mindset that will contribute to its eventual demise.  Perhaps this has to happen to awaken whatever semblance of the real Republican Party may still exist:

6.  An inconvenient truth is that the Federal "bailout" (to the tune of $80 billion) of the auto industry actually saved it and is employing close to 1.5 million workers who would have all lost their jobs.  The GeeOpee just cannot accept this as fact and avoids the issue, or just does not accept it as fact:

7.  Thomas Friedman puts forth his energy policy for the USA.  Maybe we should also join OPEC, since we are becoming a viable exporter of the stuff now:

8.  This article takes to task the phrase "self-professed well educated Republican" by calling it an oxymoron:

9.  Just before I pulled in the quotes and hit the send key for today's stuff, I had the TV on and caught bits of ABC and NBC news where both George Stephenopolous and David Gregory had Rick Santorum.   Sen. Ricky was asked about his stance on social issues and his religious beliefs and it was very revealing on how unhinged the guy is.  On ABC, Santorum railed against JFK's speech that advocated a sharp separation between church and state.  Sanitorim said the speech made him "want to throw up".   I am sure that you will be hearing more about it from the various pundits later today and all along the campaign trail.   Theogaffrocy is alive !!!!!
