Revs up Nazi-fest with her wild screaming
Link Sarah Palin served up red meat at the Nazi-fest Saturday, lambasting the Negro woth Horns
and the "mainstream media," sneering at efforts to "rebrand" the Republican Party, and telling
Karl Rove to "go back to the Lone Star State and put your name on the ballot."
The quitter may have no prospects of (or interest in) becoming an elected official again;
she may no longer have a high-paying sinecure as a Fox News pundit; and she may be too hot
to handle, too tea-party threatening for mainstream Republicans looking to break a string of five
losses in the last six presidential popular votes. ha ha
"Moderation" and "accommodation" – ideas the GOP may need to approach if not adopt on
issues like immigration and gay rights – would not describe this Pub Ho.
Do you see why I predict we can't lose in 2016?
When have election results been so obvious 44 months in advance?
The Palins and Pigboys will NOT let the GOP become a mainstream party again.
They lost five of the last six popular votes because they weren't Nazi ENOUGH.
No wonder it's an epidemic in the Church
A South African cardinal who helped elect the new pro-rape pope this week has told the BBC
pedophilia is an illness and not a crime.
Cardinal Wilfrid Fox Napier, the Catholic Archbishop of Durban, told BBC Radio 5 on Saturday
that pedophilia was a "disorder" that needed to be treated.
"From my experience, pedophilia is actually an illness. It's not a criminal condition, it's an illness," he said.
Napier said he knew of at least two priests who became pedophiles after they were abused as children.
"Now don't tell me that those people are criminally responsible like somebody who chooses to do
something like that. I don't think you can really take the position and say that person deserves to
be punished. He was himself damaged."
A gaffe is when you accidentally tell the truth
A South African cardinal on Monday apologized for offending victims of child abuse
when he described pedophilia as an illness and not a crime in a media interview.
Victims' rights groups and others said the comments by Cardinal Wilfrid Fox Napier,
the Catholic Archbishop of Durban, comments were insensitive, especially given
perceptions the Catholic Church has not done enough to root out abuse.
Not done enough?
Name one step they've ever taken...
"I apologize sincerely and unreservedly to all who were offended by the botched interview,
and especially to those who have been abused and need every help and support that the
Church can give," Napier said in a statement.
So, calling it a "botched" interview is the closest he came to taking it back?
Not to be outdone by the Arkansas legislature, which overrode Governor's Mike Beebe's veto of a bill banning abortion after 12 weeks, the North Dakota legislature has passed what is now the most restrictive abortion law in the country.
Breathe easy, Kansas, Arizona, Arkansas, and South Dakota! North Dakota has got this.
HB 1456 bans abortion as soon as a fetal heartbeat can be detected, which happens six or seven weeks into the pregnancy, two weeks after a woman misses her period, and about 28 days post-conception. That's a ridiculously narrow window. The bill provides an exception for health of the mother, but no exception for rape.

Bernie Sanders (@SenSanders) tweeted at 5:26 PM on Mon, Mar 18, 2013:
Demand a budget that makes sure that the wealthiest Americans and most profitable corporations pay their fair share. (link to petition)
A good and noble cause, and I'm all for it, but it's also an uphill battle given the power of the plutocracy over both major political parties and the media, as well as throughout the national mythology.
You might as well demand that the country interact with the rest of the world with something other than a hegemonic bludgeon, or that the powers that be give a damn about the poor and disenfranchised, or that "the people" not be armed to the teeth in preparation for armageddon, or that the Republican Party embrace science, or that the Miami Heat lose a basketball game.
In any other advanced, civilized democracy, Bernie Sanders would be a mainstream voice of justice and reason. In America, he's a "radical." That alone should fill you with despair.
