With two incidents that were reported yesterday, the left is showing that it’s just fine with misogyny and violence against women as long as the women in question aren’t card-carrying liberal feminists. As David Weigel mentioned on his Slate blog, Donna Dewitt, the outgoing president of AFL-CIO South Carolina, bashed a piñata bearing a photograph of Gov. Nikki Haley, while men and women in the crowd shouted “Whack her harder” and “hit her again.” Dewitt continues to smack the piñata long after it’s knocked down, which is a nice touch.
Elsewhere, Hustler has published an image—“a composite fantasy” in the magazine’s description—of conservative commentator S.E. Cupp with a phallus in her mouth. Hustler’s reasoning? “Cupp … is undeniably cute. But her hotness is diminished when she espouses dumb ideas like defunding Planned Parenthood.” So let’s shut her up. And, even better, use a penis to do it.
Liberals really are despicable.
***Lots of company coming today! We're celebrating Emily's birthday a bit early. We have to do it when she and Peter are both off, so today's the day! Needless to say, I ain't ready yet so we're up early to get stuff done. Can't wait to see them!
***Faith leaders outline threats to religious freedom.
The conference outlined three major threats to religious freedom: The first is the government mandate that religious institutions, such as hospitals and universities, act contrary to their conscience by offering birth control coverage to their employees. The second is what religious leaders say is a threat to the autonomy of religious organizations to choose their own leaders.***Meat and nuts, breakfast of champions!
The third issue, a key one, is religious principles in in everyday life, like pharmacists who object for moral reasons to carrying what believers equate to abortion-causing drugs or religious student groups being marginalized on school campuses. One example of the latter is the fight at Vanderbilt University over its non-discrimination policy, requiring student religious groups be open to anyone, even those who don't hold to their beliefs.
***Another idiot Democrat heard from...
We’ve heard the argument for some time now that voter ID laws are raaaaacist. But now, not only are these laws racist but they are treasonous!Former Michigan Governor Jennifer Granholm, a Democrat (duh), says that Republicans are pushing voter ID laws because they don’t have winning issues and are, instead, relying on changing the rules of the game. But then she goes on to say, “Efforts to suppress voting are not just selfish, there not just short-sighted. Voter restriction laws, that lead to an outcome based upon process instead upon merit, might be labeled – and I imagine even by our founding fathers – as treasonous.”
You could fill volumes with the idiotic musings of Granholm.
Yup, requiring you to prove you're who you say you are before you vote is now an act of treason according to this colossal twit. Sheesh.
RUSH: All of our soldiers who have died fighting communism. All of our soldiers who have died fighting National Socialism. It's more than just a day off. We're in the midst of a presidential campaign where one of the candidates, the incumbent, is running against capitalism on a weekend where we remember, honor, and memorialize those who fought and gave their lives defending it. Take a moment to think about that this weekend as you go about the other aspects of your day.

***From A Gift of Inspiration:
Strength versus WeaknessThe following is the story of one 10-year-old boy who decided to study judo despite the fact that he had lost his left arm in a devastating car accident. The boy began lessons with an old Japanese judo master. The boy was doing well, so he couldn't understand why, after three months of training, the master had taught him only one move.
'Sensei,' the boy finally said, 'Shouldn't I be learning more moves?'
'This is the only move you know, but this is the only move you'll ever need to know,' the sensei replied.
Not quite understanding, but believing in his teacher, the boy kept training.
Several months later, the sensei took the boy to his first tournament. Surprising himself, the boy easily won his first two matches. The third match proved to be more difficult, but after some time, his opponent became impatient and charged; the boy deftly used his one move to win the match. Still amazed by his success, the boy was now in the finals.
This time, his opponent was bigger, stronger, and more experienced. For a while, the boy appeared to be overmatched. Concerned that the boy might get hurt, the referee called a
time-out. He was about to stop the match when the sensei intervened.
'No,' the sensei insisted, 'Let him continue.'
Soon after the match resumed, his opponent made a critical mistake; He dropped his guard and instantly, the boy used his move to pin him. The boy had won the match and the tournament. He was the champion.
On the way home, the boy and the sensei reviewed every move in each and every match. Then the boy summoned the courage to ask what was really on his mind.
'Sensei, how did I win the tournament with only one move?'
'You won for two reasons,' the sensei answered. 'First, you've almost mastered one of the most difficult throws in all of judo. And second, the only known defense for that move is for your opponent to grab your left arm.'
The boy's biggest weakness had become his biggest strength.

The Obama campaign blasted presumptive GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney Friday for his comments on a visit to an inner-city school that smaller class sizes are not a guarantee of a good education.
“I’m not sure what universe he’s operating in,” said Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter, speaking to reporters on behalf of the president’s reelection campaign. “It’s clear that Mitt Romney is out of touch with reality.”
Romney's absolutely right. During my elementary school days, before the NEA and Democrats ruined education with their political and self worth claptrap, all of my classes were 20-30 students and we did just fine. It's the quality of the content that's the problem today, not class size. The Democrats have to keep their NEA bros happy, though. That's far more important than the education of our kids to them.
