Democrats are the party of progress. Progressives believe in science and education. Progressives believe in… the vandalism of books.

Activist Encourages Defacement of Cover of Paul Ryan’s Book
Erica Payne, founder and president of the left-wing Agenda Project, is encouraging people to deface the cover of Paul Ryan’s new book, which is hitting shelves today.
“Hi Daniel,” Payne writes in an email. “Just a heads up, Paul Ryan’s new book comes out today and his publisher is furious! It turns out that they accidentally shipped it with the wrong cover, and they need your help to make things right.
“We have the correct cover and it’s up to us to get it on as many of his books as possible, as soon as possible. The real cover is right here. Just print it out, take it to your nearest bookstore, and place it over the book jacket. Rep. Ryan is counting on us, let’s not let him down!”
Remember the slanderous and inaccurate “throw grandma off the cliff” ad Democrats launched against Paul Ryan in 2011?
Unlike Paul Ryan, they don’t have any new ideas.
I can’t wait until Erica Payne writes a book.
Of course, she’ll completely understand when someone does this to her.
This video is classic BuzzFeed, they love to do stuff like this. I remember seeing a video where they filmed the reactions of gay people watching straight porn or something like that.
This one is much better.
Their reactions are priceless. Some of them admit that they enjoyed the experience but felt guilty about it. Others acknowledge the positive aspects but say that doesn’t mean guns should be legal.
I don’t want to say much more, just watch it.
Hat tip to Hot Air…
I think this video confirms my belief that inside every militant atheist is a religious fanatic just dying to get out. In fact, that’s my suggestion for BuzzFeed the next time they want to do a video like this.
I want to see militant atheists baptized by being dunked in water at a real ceremony.
Take them to the river, BuzzFeed.
And a total drag on their party.
Obama Is Seen as Frustrating His Own Party
The meeting in the Oval Office in late June was called to give President Obama and the four top members of Congress a chance to discuss the unraveling situation in Iraq.
But Harry Reid, the Senate majority leader, wanted to press another point.
With Mitch McConnell, the Republican leader, sitting a few feet away, Mr. Reid complained that Senate Republicans were spitefully blocking the confirmation of dozens of Mr. Obama’s nominees to serve as ambassadors. He expected that the president would back him up and urge Mr. McConnell to relent.
Mr. Obama quickly dismissed the matter.
“You and Mitch work it out,” Mr. Obama said coolly, cutting off any discussion.
Mr. Reid seethed quietly for the rest of the meeting, according to four separate accounts provided by people who spoke with him about it. After his return to the Capitol that afternoon, Mr. Reid told other senators and his staff members that he was astonished by how disengaged the president seemed.
In other words, Democrats have finally met the same Obama that Republicans have been dealing with since he first took office.
Hey, Harry Reid… Obama won.
Get over it.

Video shows ISIS beheading U.S. journalist James Foley
A video released by ISIS shows the beheading of U.S. journalist James Foley and threatens the life of another American if President Barack Obama doesn’t end military operations in Iraq.
In the video posted Tuesday on YouTube, Foley is seen kneeling next to a man dressed in black. Foley reads a message, presumably scripted by his captors, that his “real killer” is America.
“I wish I had more time. I wish I could have the hope for freedom to see my family once again,” he can be heard saying in the video.

He is then shown being beheaded.
Evil is not rational. Evil cannot be reasoned with. Evil must be destroyed.

He certainly doesn’t.
Obama interrupted his posh Martha’s Vineyard vacation today and flew to Washington, DC to get briefed on the situation in Ferguson.
Then he made a statement about it.
Who cares? It makes absolutely no difference.
Tim Stanley of the Telegraph UK says: A black president couldn’t stop the Ferguson race riots
That statement assumes that he wanted to.
Obama doesn’t care about what’s happening in Ferguson.
He cares about what’s happening on Martha’s Vineyard. He cares about what’s happening in the lives of his friends in Washington, DC. He cares about his golf score and who’s going to play the next glitzy concert at the White House.
Anyone who’s second guessing Obama’s priorities at this point is naive, deluded or both.
John Walsh is unable to run for senate in Montana due to plagiarism charges so Democrats recently held a hasty meeting and nominated State Rep. Amanda Curtis.
She’s a real card. Noah Rothman of Hot Air describes her perfectly…
Montana Democrats have made a huge mistake
In this video, Curtis mocks gun ownership, religion, family values, concern over the $17.6 trillion national debt, and self-identifies as an anarchist. Montana most certainly has a historic blue streak, but Curtis is a candidate so openly left-wing that she would have trouble winning a statewide race – much less the Democratic Party’s nomination — in even traditionally blue states.

Since Curtis is a Democrat, she won’t face the media inquisition reserved only for conservative women.
Watch this video and ask yourself if this person should be a United States senator.
And everybody knows it. Even liberals like Jonathan Chait…
This Indictment Of Rick Perry Is Unbelievably Ridiculous
They say a prosecutor could get a grand jury to indict a ham sandwich, and this always seemed like hyperbole, until Friday night a Texas grand jury announced an indictment of governor Rick Perry. The “crime” for which Perry faces a sentence of 5 to 99 years in prison is vetoing funding for a state agency. The conventions of reporting — which treat the fact of an indictment as the primary news, and its merit as a secondary analytic question — make it difficult for people reading the news to grasp just how farfetched this indictment is.
Travis County District Attorney Rosemary Lehmberg — a Democrat who oversees the state’s Public Corruption unit — was arrested for driving very, very drunk. What followed was a relatively ordinary political dispute. Perry, not unreasonably, urged Lehmberg to resign. Democrats, not unreasonably, resisted out of fear that Perry would replace her with a Republican. Perry, not unreasonably, announced and carried out a threat to veto funding for her agency until Lehmberg resigned.
I do not have a fancy law degree from Harvard or Yale or, for that matter, anywhere. I am but a humble country blogger. And yet, having read the indictment, legal training of any kind seems unnecessary to grasp its flimsiness.
Stacy McCain puts it in perspective…
It is only logical that it is a bad thing to have a state official whose job is to investigate corruption charged with drunk driving. Yet because she is a Democrat and the governor is a Republican, Lehmberg refused to resign for strictly partisan reasons. The governor then exercised his prerogative in an effort to force Lehmberg to do the right thing — and Democrats then decided that the governor’s exercise of lawful authority was a crime.
Republicans need to hit back twice as hard on this. As noted by Glenn Reynolds…
The Dems are launching spoiling attacks at all the GOP prospects for 2016. That’s because they see it as war. The GOP, as Kurt Schlichter points out, needs to see things the same way if it hopes to win.
I made a similar point last night on Twitter…
For the record, this is the drunk driving Democrat DA Rick Perry wanted to get rid of…
If Rosemary Lehmberg is the new cause celeb for Texas Democrats, they have bigger things to worry about than the disastrous Wendy Davis campaign.
Good luck with that whole “turn Texas blue” thing, Dems.
You’ll need it.
