David Axelrod, shown making a snap decision
-Headline of the Day-
"White House Gives In On Bush Tax Cuts."
Super-rich people will continue to feed off the public debt like mindless, undead monsters for the foreseeable future (sorry, just saw the latest episode of Walking Dead... It was awesome!). So says the Huffington Post's always reliable Sam Stein. Sam says that top Obamanaut David Axelrod thinks that the only way they'll be able to extend tax cuts for anyone is to extend tax cuts for the Wall Street zombies. Otherwise, Republicans are willing to shoot the hostage -- who, by the way, is you. Stein says he got it straight from the horse's mouth.
But wait, the equally reliable Greg Sargent says nuh-uh, that's not what he was told. Axelrod sent him an email saying the whole story isn't so true and wonders where people get these crazy ideas. Since Sam got the info from an interview with Axelrod, I'd have to say that he probably got the idea from some jerk named "Axelrod." Just sayin'.
I'd also say that it looks like this Axelrod guy has no idea what the fuck he wants to do. (Huffington Post)

You know, every candidate says they're going try to find common ground with the other party. Who knew this guy really meant it? (MarkFiore.com)

Hey guys, if Bristol wins a game show, it's not exactly a blow against communism, you know. I don't care what Glenn Beck says. (Bloomberg)
