Looks like the Rep. Joe Wilson saga has officially jumped the plumber. Big Daddy YouLie! has, it seems, become the newest hero of the Republican Party…
Not many people get to sign their names to one of the [National Republican Congressional Committee]'s fundraising e-mails. Its chair, Pete Sessions, does — so does House Minority Leader John Boehner, and Rep. Tom Price, R-Ga., who's the leader of the House's conservative caucus. No one other than those three has done so since the end of June, at least not according to my inbox. But on Friday, Wilson did.
What's that? The guy who yelled nonsense at the President like a heroic junior high student signed his name to this fundraising email? Grab my checkbook and tell the kids to forget about college! It's Savin' America Time!

Finally! A reasoned and thought-provoking explanation for the economy's free fall…
Deep into a New York Times item Monday about rising jobless numbers comes a theory that the Times gently refers to as an "argument" that "may indeed face an uphill fight."
[Republican Congressperson Pete Sessions] told the Times that Obama's plan is to "diminish employment and diminish stock prices." By doing so, Obama "intended to inflict damage and hardship on the free enterprise system, if not to kill it" as part of a "divide and conquer" strategy to consolidate power.
That's super-impressive. Usually, when you hear a theory of such staggering intellective deduction being bandied about, it's coming from a junior high student or a homeless person in need of neurological medication.
The fact that a member of the legislative body of my government came up with that idea all on his own makes me so proud… Words just can't describe the feelings I'm feeling.

A Republican insurgency shouldn't be too hard since the GOP has quite a bit in common with the Taliban.
The two groups share similar ideologies, shadowy leaders, and now strategies? What else do Republicans and terrorists have in common?
