Wake up America! Read some stories!
- GOP faithful eager to hitch their wagon to super-dense neutron star Chris Christie may want to take a look at his new budget. It seems his conservatism is mostly buffoonish bark, with high profile red meat gay-bashing and very little bite as he ratchets up public pensions, programs for the elderly and education aid (snob!).
- If you haven’t seen it in the mix of clips about abolishing education and contraception, Rick Santorum does, in fact, have an economic plan. It looks like a recipe to solve the federal debt, right? Oh, no, it would add $4.5 trillion to the debt according to a bipartisan group. Sorry.
- Russian news sources are claiming that they have foiled a plot to assassinate Vladimir Putin. I’m not saying this is a lie cooked up by Putin, but there is an election next week and this would give a pretext for a crackdown in Chechnya. Probably a coincidence though…
- Santorum’s campaign is a sneaky one. They’re calling Michigan Democrats and urging them to go to the polls to defeat Romney. The conventional wisdom that says Santorum doesn’t understand how to win elections is wrong.
