Take THAT Rush Limbaugh. Wish they were dancing on your head.
"Defying the House speaker’s call for restraint, the conservative radio host encouraged his listeners on Friday to “spike the football” if the Supreme Court strikes down all or part of President Barack Obama’s health care law."

want more good news ?

Bachmann's days may be numbered. This poll is significant because her opponant is new to politics, has no name recognition (quick, who is running against Bachmann?) yet is only behind by 5 points. He is just beginning to get his name and face out there, I think he's got a good shot. Jim Graves http://jimgraves.com/
Here's the poll:
Michele Bachmann Vulnerable to Defeat in 2012

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: June 26, 2012. Washington, D.C.

Congresswoman Michele Bachmann’s unsuccessful bid for president had a clear and negative impact on her standing among voters in the new Minnesota 6th CD. She receives low marks on both her job performance and personal favorability. While she is well-defined and almost universally known, her support is below 50 percent in a two-way contest for U.S. Congress. Her weaker standing leaves her vulnerable to defeat in this November’s election against businessman Jim Graves.

A poll of 505 likely voters in Minnesota’s 6th Congressional District shows that Bachmann comes to the 2012 elections with poor standing with voters in the district. Reactions to her are strongly negative, with 51 percent of voters giving her a cool, negative rating and just 35 percent giving her a warm, positive rating.

The race for U.S. Congress reflects her weakness, with Bachmann under 50 percent and leading by only 5 points (48 - 43 percent, with 9 percent undecided).

have dinner with Garrison Keillor AND help defeat Bachmann

Candy Crowley twin in a lab coat

looking very concerned and doctor-like in a TV ad just now, bashing healthcare reform. What the hell is this? Paid for by "Concerned women for America" looked it up: Seems they just bought $6 million of ad time.

"Concerned Women for America (CWA) is the nation's largest public policy women's organization with a rich 30-year history of helping our members across the country bring Biblical principles into all levels of public policy. There's a cultural battle raging across this country and CWA is on the frontline protecting those values through prayer and action."

Off duty SWAT cop puts man on life support

(for "talking too loud" on cellphone. Punched man for using cellphone on outdoor patio of local pub, victim on life support after two emergent brain surgeries last night. Witnesses say the only interaction between the two men was when the off duty cop said he was talking too loud on phone, then decked him. WTF?)

Minneapolis police officer punches man unconscious on bar patio in Andover

A father of four from Ramsey, Minn. is not spending this Father's Day as anyone would like. Brian Vander Lee is fighting for his life at Mercy Hospital.

"Everyone is taking it hard -- it's tough," said Mike Archambault, Vander Lee's longtime friend.

Archambault says Vander Lee was on the patio at Tanners in Andover around 7 p.m. Saturday night. Vander Lee was talking loud on his cell phone when a stranger at another table asked him to be quiet. Minutes later, Archambault spoke to Vander Lee as he was pulling into the parking lot, but the cell phone went dead.

"He did a Superman punch," Archambault said. "Brian went back, feet up in the air, and the guy landed on top of him and his head bounced off the concrete

If your parent/grandparent is is a nursing home

and on Medicaid, be forwarned.
My Dad died 18 days ago. He was a WW2 veteran and former POW. He was never on Medicaid, had VA coverage and disabiity. However, my Mom who died in 2008 was on Medicaid for her nursing home stay. They had no home, just rented, and had a tiny blue=collar savings, they spent down, followed all the Medicaid rules. Like most lower-middle income folks, they had no fancy "estate planner" to hide assets in the Cayman Islands, heck they wouldn't do it anyway. They were just hard working poor people who never asked for anything, until Mom had a stroke, we coped as long as we could until she finally needed skilled care.
Today, while my Dad's body is barely in the ground, we get a letter saying that the state "estate asset recovery"
would like $108,000.00 from his "estate" to pay for my Moms nursing home care prior to her death in 2008!
Fortunately, they have nothing to go to probate, there is no "estate" but if, for instance they had a home to sell, ALL of it's proceeds would go to "payback" Medicaid, even years after the fact. They wait until the surviving non-Medicaid spouse dies, then place a lien. I was not aware of this and shocked to get the letter at how fucking cold hearted this country has become.
