    Kingston and Purdue were interviewed yesterday by Joel Williams and Ashley Bell on WDUN. A clear distinction on Iraq: career politician Kingston favored military intervention and Perdue did not.

    • Will Durant says:

      Yeah that military intervention that Darth Dick is now touting as Obama’s fault for unraveling has really worked out well for us. What did we think was going to happen when we took out what was essentially a non-secular tyrant that was allowing a minority sect to rule a majority sect? Especially when we helped setup his replacement as a very secular Shiite ally to Iran? Let the Saudi’s intervene if they feel like it. They have been funding the Sunnis.

      Kingston is all wet on this one.

  2. The Last Democrat in Georgia says:

    The Cobb tax district story has the wrong link.

    …Still, thanks for the news, Obi’s Sister.

  3. Stefan says:

    Regarding IKEA hacks, the operator of that website should be thrilled at that result. Maybe he should have negotiated a longer period for redirects, but it sounds like this all worked out well for the guy.

    It’s gonna be boring again when Rep. Steve Stockman leaves Congress:

    “The United States was founded on the belief government is subservient and accountable to the people. Taxpayers shouldn’t be expected to follow laws the Obama administration refuses to follow themselves,” said Stockman. “Taxpayers should be allowed to offer the same flimsy, obviously made-up excuses the Obama administration uses.”

    The announcement said under the plan, called “The Dog Ate My Tax Return Act,” “taxpayers who do not provide documents requested by the IRS can claim one of the following reasons:”

    Those include:

    The dog ate my tax receipts
    Convenient, unexplained, miscellaneous computer malfunction
    Traded documents for five terrorists
    Burned for warmth while lost in the Yukon
    Left on table in Hillary’s Book Room
    Received water damage in the trunk of Ted Kennedy’s car
    Forgot in gun case sold to Mexican drug lords
    Forced to recycle by municipal Green Czar
    Was short on toilet paper while camping
    At this point, what difference does it make?

      I may not be familiar with Representative Steve Stockman, but I sure like the way he thinks.
