I See Inside Myself and Know It's Painted Black

Media Matters has a great take down of Karl Rove's new work of fiction:
Going Rove: Courage and Consequence is full of falsehoods

1. Rove distorts Senate report to claim Bush didn't "lie us into the war"

2. Rove falsehood: Obama claims "Obamacare would not add to the deficit ... evidence shows just the opposite"

3. Rove revives tired smear that Gore wrongly said "that he had created the Internet"

4. Rove revives Gore-Love Story smear

5. Rove falsehood: Gore said he had "discovered the Love Canal chemical disaster"

6. Rove pals around with falsehood that Ayers was "Obama's great friend"

7. Rove wrong on number of presidents who left office by "assassination or resignation
And that's just the first page!
Seriously, check it out, they do the research and have the links to it. Thank the FSM they have more time than I do.

The Quittah from Wasilla compares herself to god:
Palin: Writing on palms ‘was good enough for God’

Sarah Palin has a message for critics of her crib-notes during February's Tea Party keynote speech: God did it too.

At a fundraiser on Friday for the Ohio Right to Life group, Palin assailed the media for getting "all wigged out about that" and claimed they're attacking her because they "couldn't argue the content" of the words.

Referring the crowd to a Bible passage from Isiah 49:16, she assured them she's "in good company."

"If what was good enough for God, scribbling on the palm of his hand, it's good enough for me, for us," Palin said. "In that passage he says, I wrote your name on the palm of my hand to remember you. And I'm like okay, I'm in good company."
Actually, the chapter and verse is Isaiah saying The Lord (maybe it's my lack of indoctrination, but isn't 'the lord' Jesus!? I get so confused by the bible) told him "Behold, I have graven thee upon the palms of my hands; thy walls are continually before me."

And I'm so totally, ya know, like, also, too, not okay, with the Bimbo from Limbo comparing god (or jesus) carving their hand, with this retard having to scribble on her hand of the 3 major talking points she (and every republican) has given in every speech! i.e. “energy,” “budget tax cuts,” and “lift American spirit"
Next up in the Race for the Loon:
Virginia AG orders colleges to stop protecting gays

Officials and student leaders at Virginia colleges are reacting mutedly, so far, to an order from state Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli that the schools stop protecting LGBT students.

In a letter (PDF) sent to the state's public colleges and universities and obtained by the Washington Post, Cuccinelli declared that the schools don't have the authority to uphold bans on discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation when the state itself has no such ban.

"It is my advice that the law and public policy of the Commonwealth of Virginia prohibit a college or university from including 'sexual orientation,' 'gender identity,' 'gender expression,' or like classification, as a protected class within its non-discrimination policy, absent specific authorization from the General Assembly," the letter stated.
Virginia has many fine colleges and universities, but I have a feeling they aren't going to get many applicants next year.
Another contestant in the Race for the Loon:
GOP: Law banning child abuse in schools will lead to ‘government takeover’

A proposed law designed to prevent child abuse in schools has been lauded by children's protection advocates, and slammed by House Republicans as an unnecessary expansion of federal government power.
Though the bill was a bipartisan effort in reaction to a government report last year that found "hundreds of cases of alleged abuse and death" related to the practices, it was opposed by a vast majority of Republicans, who said the bill amounted to an intrusion on states' rights and the ability of local school districts to determine their own policies.
It really sucks that the Federal Government has to intervene, but if the local boards and the states can't protect the weakest among us it is past time. Torturing kids when the 'act up' is the job of the parents, not the states.
We has another contender for Peak Loon:
'Operation Exodus': Louisiana Sheriff Taps Locals For Emergency Security Plan

A Louisiana sheriff plans to arm volunteers with shotguns, riot shields, batons, and a .50-caliber machine gun mounted on a "war wagon," as part of "Operation Exodus," a program to provide security in the event of a terrorist attack or civic unrest. "It's a calling," he says.
But wait! There's more:
The office of the Louisiana sheriff who's forming a citizen militia to defend the parish in the event of a terrorist attack says it has information about possible Islamic terrorist activity in its midst.
Srsly!? LOL! I mean OMG, terrorists live and train in BumFuk Lousiana!?

Anyone else want to bet the sheriff & his pussie [sic] are 100% caucasian? (as far as they know;-)

Man, one of those .50 cal machine guns would look just dandy mounted on the hood of Warrior Woman's Civic, although personally I pre the M-60 machine gun-jams a lot less often and ya can change barrels fast before they get so hot that they start 'cooking off' rounds and you get a runaway on your hands. No one liked to fire the M-60 so I'd go around gathering up the hundred rounds or so everyone was 'spose to fire at a tank silhouette hanging from a telephone pole frame about 300-350 yards away, top and sides. I'd cut off the side telephone poles off at ground level on each side first and as the frame slowly fell I'd cut the top pole in half before it could hit the ground. That way no one else had anything to fire at and we'd move to a different weapon or weapons systems. Boy! would the range master be pissed! But with only a three inch drop per thousand yards you could do some serious damage to anyone caught out in open fields, and with enough ammo you could level building!

I always heard the M60's were superior, but my only experience is firing single shot tracer rounds on a M50 mounted to a 106 recoiless. and I didn't even get to fire the 106!

I did observe M60's in a demo that took down a brick building.
