So the GOP is all about free markets. Then explain why they consistently protect farm subsidies? I know the elephant is the symbol of the Republican party, but based on the amount of pork in their budget it should be changed to the pig. Sadly, these ethanol and farm subsidy driven sycophants would rather cut aid to low income mothers and children than take away corporate welfare from these ‘poor’ farm owners that make over $750k that get thousands of dollars. Yeah, the annual bill to pay for food and farm programs next year would cut food aid for low-income mothers and children by $685 million. Wake Up America.
What is burning hotter Wallow fire or Palin as she has been usurped by Michelle Bachmann in the hearts and little minds of the Tea Party? Yes, crazy eyes has taken the mantle. Hey Sarah there is always Mayor of Cave Creek?
Not a good sign for Rick “anal lube meets fecal matter” Santorum. In Republican polling in his home state of Pennsylvania he trails both Mitt Romney and some guy named Undecided. Worse yet, he trails President Obama by 11 points in a head to head poll. Old adage in DiggaPolitics: before you enter a presidential race, make sure you can carry your home state.
Bald Eagles have been attacking customers at Post Office in Dutch Harbor, Alaska. Quick hits:

· That explains what happened to Palin’s hairdoo.
US Airlines collected $5.7Billion in baggage and other extra fees in 2010. I am thinking the next fees coming to your favorite airline could include Bellman and concierge service where an airline employee will carry your bags onto the plane for you, reserved overhead bin space, and Netflix movie service.
Monsoon season has officially arrived in Phoenix. Time to get out of dodge.
Too bad Jack Kevorkian isn’t around to allow the Pawlenty, Santorum, and Gingrich campaigns die in dignity.
Proving how ignorant and petty the mental midget media (a.k.a right wing) can be, they can’t understand metaphors. The President was responding to a question from Ann Curry regarding why job growth isn’t as fast as hoped for by stating that investment in automation has replaced employees: “You see it when you go to a bank and you use an ATM; you don't go to a bank teller. Or you go to the airport, and you're using a kiosk instead of checking in at the gate.” So what do the mental midgets do? They jump on him saying he doesn’t understand business. Really? How’s this, he DOES understand. He understands that the hourly employee jobs are going away and will not be coming back. He understands that the higher paying jobs that come with post high school education are the key to our future. And you know what, those software engineers who right that code for those ATM’s and kiosks, they’re in India because we aren’t producing enough engineers.
