Stories to Watch: 5/15/12

The White House threatens to veto a Republican-weakened Violence Against Women Act -- or, as the version would be better named, the "Go Ahead and Slap Around Lesbians and Immigrants Act."

How long before Mitt Romney trots out a few "gay friends" to demonstrate how cool they are with his rabid homophobia?

Michele Bachmann just can't stop lying.

DNC head Debbie Wasserman Schultz announces on Twitter that she's heading off to Wisconsin to "raise money & recruit [volunteers]" for Barrett. Her timeline is immediately overrun with people thinking maybe the DNC should pony up a little money instead. Still, the pressure is on the DNC to get their shit together and they're obviously feeling the heat. Leaving the recall folks to twist in the wind would be a seriously lousy idea, so someone has to save the DNC from themselves here. If you haven't done it already, drop them a line and (politely) request that they stop being so damned stupid.

Also, recall target Scott Walker transferred $60,000 to his legal defense fund from his recall campaign fund. This raises the question: if Walker's not the target of the John Doe investigation, by what legal rationale can he even have such a fund? Wisconsin Democrats want to know. Sure, it's a way to keep the words "Scott Walker" and "legal defense fund" together in headlines -- but that doesn't mean they don't have a point.

This hopeless mess of illogic is what passes for reasoning among the religious right.

Kill the filibuster. Kill it dead. Drive a stake through its heart. Then salt the Earth so that nothing grows on the grave. Democracy requires no less.

Everything Republicans say about taxes, spending, deficits, and Pres. Obama is wrong. Everything.

Pfinally, Pfizer says "Pfuck you!" to Pfolks on Pfacebook (sorry, I couldn't help myself).
