“Rob Astorino: Chris Christie should consider stepping down as chairman of Republican Governors Association” —

Astorino made the suggestion because Christie would not support him in his bid to unseat Gov. Cuomo. Christie said the association doesn’t ‘pay for landslides and we don’t invest in lost causes.’ But Astorino suggested Cuomo might have a hold on Christie over the Bridgegate scandal.

Didn’t know the Fat One was the capo di tutti frutti so to speak.

Christie not campaigning for an apparently assured loser because Iowa’s calling is one thing.

The head of the Reekpublican Governors — the wicked and the deranged — is something else entirely different.

But not really sooo surprising.

Interesting how he rolls with the times, but….

All the pieces like this are about established people and acts.

Articles showing how unknowns leverage the social media to become huge — those are rare. (On the other hand, Bieber was one.)

“It’s a damning turn of events in the horrible saga; after one of its officers was caught on video repeatedly smashing a homeless woman in the face, the force went to a psychiatric ward and seized her medical records.” —

Waiting for the imminent day that the homeless get sent to “camps”. Gotta be something that will be happening soon.

A tweeted photograph of a Lebanese journalist kissing her Jewish boyfriend has inspired many to post similar photos on Twitter and Facebook with the hashtag #JewsandArabsRefuseToBeEnemies. In the photo shown here that started the trend, Sulome Anderson, daughter of former AP Middle East bureau chief Terry Anderson, smooches her American-Israeli boyfriend.
More in Sulome’s NY Mag essay on the photo, or by searching the hashtag.

Of course, would work better with a Christofascist in the place of the Jewish Israeli boyfriend. And if the Lebanese didn’t have an American father.
Even better: getting the neocons out of foreign policy.

Inflation Was Much Higher Pre-Crisis than Post-Crisis -

All this talk of inflation is just lies from greedy pigs.

Reality is that your making a decent, fair living will be the first sign of real inflation.

And that’s not happening anytime soon. Likely never.

A Brutal Loss, but an Enduring Conviction -

Fifty years after her husband’s assassination, she still believes in their principles.
