Jan Brewer vs. Obama: An airport meeting turns into an epic battle
She wrote some things in her book he didn’t like: The tough-on-immigration Arizona governor, who was not particularly happy with the way the president treated her in a much-talked-about-at-the-time 2010 meeting, wrote about it in her new book ”Scorpions for Breakfast,” and Obama didn’t like what she said. So, last night, when Obama got into Phoenix, this happened. ”I will say that a picture is what it is,” she said. “I must say, I was not hostile. I was trying to be very, very gracious. I respect the office of the president, and I would never be disrespectful in that manner.” What we would give to hear that conversation up close. (AP Photo) source

Oh, Tea Party.  Your brief and vibrant anti-government fervor is fading already.

We can look angrier if it helps. (EDIT: No, we’re not Tea Partiers. We just like being angry because it’s fun.)

This Egyptian protester’s middle finger really says it all: Inside this man’s middle finger are the flames of a revolution. Inside this man’s middle finger are the dreams of thousands of Egyptians. Inside this man’s middle finger is all that needs to be said. source Follow ShortFormBlog

I don’t think this will leave any scars. I just think we leave this fight knowing that I was right and he was wrong. I mean, it’s as simple as that.
Sen. Joe Lieberman • Explaining his feeling on the flare-up John McCain had over yesterday’s “don’t ask, don’t tell” repeal. While the law’s passage was otherwise calm, McCain (who led the dissent against repeal) got angry at least a few times yesterday, mainly because he wanted more time to debate the bill (which he got without having to be angry about it). Anyway, the former presidential candidate went a little off the deep end, bemoaning “this bizarro world that the majority leader has been carrying us in,” and basically being kind of a jerk about the whole thing. So, this is what it’s like to be a maverick, eh? source (viafollow)

Dear anonymous sources: Please don’t anger Sarah Palin

This is the torrent of rage that builds up when you piss sarah Palin off: "I suppose I could play their immature, unprofessional, waste-of-time game, too, by claiming these reporters and politicos are homophobe, child molesting, tax evading, anti-dentite, puppy-kicking, chain smoking porn producers…really, they are… I’ve seen it myself…but I’ll only give you the information off-the-record, on deep, deep background; attribute these ‘facts’ to an ‘anonymous source’ and I’ll give you more." Yikes. We’re scared. *cower* source

French people don’t like it when you mess with their pensions: No, these guys aren’t going to a Daft Punk show (OK, they might be later) … they’re steel workers protesting France’s possible new austerity measures. And they’re angry. source
