Roughly the same number of people showed up for last weekend's gay rights march in Washington DC as showed up for the 9/12 Tea Party. How did Fox News report the 9/12 march? With multiple correspondents and camera crews, not to mention producers pumping up the crowds on camera. How did they cover the gay rights march? Well, they didn't. Jon Stewart has some fun with it.

Political News: Repubs leaders clueless, CNN compares O to Nixon, Soros is not left according to NBC, “To Obama”
Andrea Mitchell doesn't think George Soros is particularly left-wing in his politics. Sure. And Michael Moore is a stone-cold moderateObamu (verb): "To Obama". The act of ignoring inconvenient facts or realities, and proceding with blind optimism
Aren't puppies mostly made of protein?
Eco-enthusiasts recommend eating household pets, like puppies?
I believe the mystery has been solved, as this group is clearly operating with teeny, tiny brains!
“The eco-pawprint of a pet dog is twice that of a 4.6-litre Land Cruiser driven 10,000 kilometres a year, researchers have found. Victoria University professors Brenda and Robert Vale, architects who specialise in sustainable living, say pet owners should swap cats and dogs for creatures they can eat, such as chickens or rabbits, in their provocative new book Time to Eat the Dog.”
Democrats think for themselves, but Republicans do what they're told, says President Obama. Every Democrat nods in self-satisfied agreement with their party leader
Rep Alan Grayson(D. Fla.): Fox News is the enemy of America
For a feminist party, Democrats have a problem with women, or rather, with one certain type: Young and/or youngish, cute and/or stunning, with good hair, many children, and outspoken center-right views.
Sarah Palin and Michelle Bachmann (dark hair, with five children) first roused the beast, and misogynist instincts.
Now there's Liz Cheney, (blond, with five children), whom they themselves have made into a star
At Vanity Fair, Michael Wolff pawed through the adjective bin and came up with a handful, calling her "pernicious" and "venomous," and that was just the beginning. She was also "sour, wounded, aggrieved, graceless, paranoid ... self-pitying, doubtless, extreme, aggressive and defensive, she might literally kill you and your kind if she could."
Albania. There are thousands of these concrete bunkers all over the country.
A memento from Trafalgar
JMW Turner's depiction of the Battle of Trafalgar
Collection National Maritime Museum, Greenwich
On this day in 1805, a British fleet led by Horatio Nelson dealt a crushing defeat to Napoleon's plans to invade Britain. Nelson and the battle are described here. You might find the account interesting. Losing his mother when he was nine, and going to sea when he was twelve, Nelson was seasick and insubordinate. However, he grew up to be quite incredible, and his willingness to think outside the box saved Britain.
The population of 100-resident Kinsman, Ill., nearly doubled in an hour as federal agents and police swarmed an Islamic meat plant, cordoning off the area and detaining employees — and no one seems to know why.
$5,500 Golf Cart Credit Emblematic of "Tax Policy in the Age of Obama"Wall Street Journal editorial, Cash for Clubbers: Congress's Fabulous Golf Cart Stimulus:
We thought cash for clunkers was the ultimate waste of taxpayer money, but as usual we were too optimistic. Thanks to the federal tax credit to buy high-mileage cars that was part of President Obama's stimulus plan, Uncle Sam is now paying Americans to buy that great necessity of modern life, the golf cart. The federal credit provides from $4,200 to $5,500 for the purchase of an electric vehicle, and when it is combined with similar incentive plans in many states the tax credits can pay for nearly the entire cost of a golf cart. ...
This golf-cart fiasco perfectly illustrates tax policy in the age of Obama, when politicians dole out credits and loopholes for everything from plug-in cars to fuel efficient appliances, home insulation and vitamins. Democrats then insist that to pay for these absurdities they have no choice but to raise tax rates on other things—like work and investment—that aren't politically in vogue. If this keeps up, it'll soon make more sense to retire and play golf than work for living.
