Huh. It Is a Mystery.

3 Feb

Anybody have any idea why the majority of reporting in the “mainstream media” (how I hate that term) fails to mention that the Senior Vice President for Public Policy at Susan G. Komen is adamantly anti-choice? Their initial stance wasn’t just “caving into pressure”–it was evidence of rot from within.

What the fuck kind of “women’s health” organization hires a policy director who is, like, you know, anti-women’s health??? And why is SGK’s backpedaling not being reported for the fucking horeshit that it is?

Must be because all those elitist librul Islamofascist baby-hating feminazis run everything.

Polyamory is Okay As Long As You Lie About It

Does anyone else find this media hyperventilating over Newt Gingrich’s ex-wife’s interview a little weird? I mean, we knew that he cheated on her with Callista. His retroactive request for an open marriage is fucked up, but is it any worse than fucking another woman and lying about it?

Shorter Dana Milbank: Girls are silly (and they probably have cooties).

The headline + his bloated, creepy visage = T&U saying “UGH” very loudly over her morning coffee and initially closing the tab in unmitigated disgust.

Your False Equivalency Orgy of the Day

Some dude from The Weekly Standard and another guy from the Washington Post discuss the value of political fact checking on Talk of the Nation. The highlight comes from the Weekly Standard dude who is, like, all anti-fact checking and shit:

HEMINGWAY: Well, there’s a number of reasons why I arrived at that conclusion. One of the facts I pointed out in the piece was that the University of Minnesota School of Public Affairs had actually done a survey of PolitiFact, and they evaluated all 500 statements that PolitiFact had rated from January of 2010 to January of 2011.

And they found that of the 98 statements that PolitiFact had rated false, 74 of them were by Republicans. Now, I can think of a number of reasons why you might cite one party over the other more, in terms of, you know, who was telling the truth and who wasn’t. But doing that at a rate of three to one strikes me as awfully suspicious, particularly when, if you delve into the specifics of the statements that they cited, there’s all kinds of problematic things contained there, whereas they are, you know, like you’re mentioned, they’re often fact-checking opinions and providing counter-arguments to, you know, stated opinions.

Huh. Well, Mark, maybe the problem isn’t the fact-checking methodology, but the fact that YOUR PARTY FUCKING LIES ALL THE FUCKING TIME???

Of course, this is the same dude who later said that Sarah Palin’s claim of death panels wasn’t technically a lie, so I think it’s clear that he technically lives in a different universe than the rest of us.

ZOMG LIBRUL MEDIA

Telling the president to “quit lying”=”accusing him of misleading the American people.”

And John Boehner just has something in his eye.

BTW, remember when calling the president a liar was tantamount to treason? Yeah. Good times.
