Supreme Court rules to uphold Obamacare, the right goes completely freaking nuts

Going off of the rails on the crazy train...

It's hard to believe that it's been over two years since the Affordable Care Act, our beloved Obamacare, was signed into law. After all, the sky is still up, right? Today's Supreme Court ruling upholding the constitutionality of Obamacare is exactly what happens when the right challenges the constitutionality of a law that was supported, endorsed, and championed by a president who is a constitutional scholar: they get their asses handed to them. The result has been predictable, even if the SCOTUS ruling was not. Much more after the jump.

Romney’s past says everything you need to know about how he’d govern & who he’d represent as president

Not just the past -- the past WEEK

It hasn't been a good week or two for Mitt Romney. His past, which he seems to think nobody will look at, think about, or care about, is beginning to catch up with him. Between his record as a failed job-creator as a governor and a successful jobs-destroyer as a businessman as well as a rare glimpse at just who he will be beholden to if he is elected, Mitt Romney has a severe and awesome image problem to overcome. One I doubt that he will. Much, much more after the jump.

Check out the Google Maps street view of my house. That's the sign we had up in the fall of 2008. Screen cap after the jump.

Please Allow Me to Introduce Mitt Romney

What Democrats learned from 2004

Here’s the bad news: While the American economy is still doing better than the most of the industrialized world, it’s still a bummer. You know the private sector is doing quite well compared to the public sector. If the GOP hadn’t forced layoffs of more than 600,000 workers in the public sector, the unemployment rate would be close to 7%.

3 Things to Tell Anyone Considering Voting for Mitt Romney

I know it’s hard to believe but Romney voters are out there. The key thing is to not argue with them. Arguing often makes people defend a position they don’t actually have.

So I suggest you just say this:

Well, things are much better off now than they were when Bush left them. 27 months of creating jobs. We’re out of Iraq and bin Laden is gone.

And then I’d add one of these Romney doubt macros:

1. In the last half century, the economy has produced 66 million private sector jobs— 42 million of them under Democratic presidents, 24 million under the Republicans.…

EPIC FAIL: Troy Tea Party Mayor Janice Daniels tries (& fails) to challenge recall petitions on font size

You're kidding me, right?

Troy Tea Party mayor Janice Daniels (R-Cuckoo for Cocoa Puffs) is facing a recall challenge. What has flown under the radar is that, on June 18th, she challenged the petition signatures gathered for her recall based on -- wait for it -- FONT SIZE! Her challenge was both comical and, thankfully, an epic failure. Details after the jump.
