A new, tougher, dog throttling Elizabeth Warren surges in the polls

    I know that my “Life Begins at Rape” meme didn’t go anywhere, but I’m not giving up. I’m going to keep trying. Sooner or later, I’m bound to come up with a breakthrough meme. Here’s my most recent attempt… Let’s see what happens.

    And, speaking of Elizabeth Warren, did you hear the news? It looks as though, perhaps in part due to this new “I Kill Dogs” campaign, she’s finally starting to pull away from Scott Brown in the polls. One poll has her up by 2 points, and another has her up by 6. It would appear as though Massachusetts Democrats, in the wake of the convention, are finally beginning to get behind her in a significant way. And, it’s not just Warren that’s starting to turn things around. It looks as though Tammy Baldwin is even flipping the script in Wisconsin, which was supposed to be a relatively sure thing for Republican Tommy Thompson. Baldwin, who was 10 points down in June, now appears to be a full 3 to 5 points ahead. Of course, with a lot of people beginning to write off Mitt Romney, quite a bit of the conservative money that was earmarked for the presidential race, is now likely going to be redirected toward House and Senate races. So, if you haven’t done so already, please consider dropping by Act Blue, and investing a few dollars in a progressive candidate in a tight race. A few dollars could make a big difference.

        She didn’t really kill the dog. It’s an old Indian trick she learned from her grandfather when she was growing up on the reservation.

        Is that what passes for humor in your xtian identity terror cell? I still would like to know what we should do about the final solution to the Islamic question.

        Wait a minute, I want to know what we should do about the Islamic threat that you so carefully illustrated. You depicted the impending doom of Islamic forces, I want to know what you think the West should do. They have the obligation to kill every nonbeliever, and they can’t wait to do so (nevermind we bomb women/children everyday in drone strikes, and have killed hundreds of thousands of Islamic people over the last 10 years), I want to know what your sleeper cell is doing to keep the US safe from Dearbornistani threat. Should we convert them by force like the Marrano Jews? Kill them? Indefinately detain all non-Protestants in honeycombed skyscraper prisons?

        The main point here, as I take it, is that the line is shifting and races that didn’t look winnable now do. The American people, it would seem, are finally beginning to wake up to the fact that the Republicans have offered no solutions, and that health care probably isn’t something to fight against. If the best they can come up with against Warren is that she’s part Native American, I think we’re in pretty good shape. The truth is, the demographics are shifting in America, and men like EOS are dying off. Evolution is a good thing.

        It has been well established that she has no basis for her racial preference claim. She is no part Native American. You would think that a progressive might resent that.

        Thanks for backing me up. She claims 1/32 lineage, but cannot prove it. Racial preference status needs more evidence than “Family Lore”.

        Let’s make this whole election about truth telling and ancestry. Then we can talk about the “plural marriage” of Mitt’s grandfather, and Paul Ryan’s record breaking marathon times. The truth is, she’s no where near as dishonest as anyone on the Republican ticket. She merely reported what she’d been told by her family, that a great grandparent was native American. The reason people are latching onto it is that it can’t be proven. It is a non-story. But that never stopped the Republicans, who are still demanding a birth certificate from President Obama, long after he provided one.

        Warren has a whole page on her site for “dog lovers”. Surely they won’t like this “If I can kill a golden retriever, I can stand up to Iran” campaign.

        I want to see Jesus’ birth certificate.

        I want pictures of him walking on water.

        I want a full before and after clinical analysis of Lazarus.

        I want proof that Mary wasn’t doing the nasty with Joseph, and, if available, semen samples from God to prove paternity.

        I enjoy how EOS presents the news of Ambassador Stevens having been sodomized as complete fact, though the evidence is, so far, weak.

        I would remind everyone that EOS is also a birther.

        It’s about belief, Peter, not fact.

        They see a photo of an Arab man carrying Stevens to a hospital, and in their minds it becomes evidence of a four hour long anal rape session. The truth, you see, is completely subjective, and their beliefs are just as valid as our facts. Fox news has taught us that much, if nothing else. Gay sex and Muslim violence is everywhere. It’s pervasive.

        Sandra Fluke, Saul Alinsky, Michale Moore, Michelle Obama, and any number of other prominent progressives, who are often attacked by conservatives, are likewise not running for Senate. Should they be off limits as well?

        Also, here’s a link to the story that Peter referred to.

        A historian of early Christianity at Harvard Divinity School has identified a scrap of papyrus that she says was written in Coptic in the fourth century and contains a phrase never seen in any piece of Scripture: “Jesus said to them, ‘My wife …’ ”

        The faded papyrus fragment is smaller than a business card, with eight lines on one side, in black ink legible under a magnifying glass. Just below the line about Jesus having a wife, the papyrus includes a second provocative clause that purportedly says, “she will be able to be my disciple.”

        Recent polls show Democrats holding onto the Senate.

        From The Atlantic:

        As we get closer to November 6 and polls start to look more and more like predictions, new numbers from the ongoing Senate races show the Democrats clinging to their slim majority this fall. Nate Silver and FiveThrityEight have Democrats coming up with 51.2 seats, enough to hold on to their majority by the slimmest of margins. Electoral-Vote.com’s map also has the same one-seat edge, based on their gathering of swing state polls.

        Republicans had hoped to take control of both houses of Congress this year, but a closer breakdown of individual races reveals a few surprises. In one of the most closely watched and hardest fought races, Democrat Elizabeth Warren has opened up a lead on Republican Scott Brown in Massachusetts. FiveThirtyEight gives her a 64 percent chance of winning at the moment. A Michigan Senate race that was thought to be competitive earlier this year is now looking like a blowout for Democrat Debbie Stabenow, and Missouri’s Claire McCaskill is pulling away from everyone’s favorite rape pregnancy expert Todd Akin.

        One big tossup remains in Nevada, where Republicans Republican Dean Heller is projected to beat Shelley Berkley, but polling remains divided. Wisconsin and Virginia are also still close fights.

        If the Democrats retain their lead they will be far from the filibuster-proof super majority, but way better off than they thought they might be after losing six seats in 2010. They can’t afford to lose the presidency and all of Congress in one year, but two of the three pillars seem to be trending their way at the moment.

        The question was asked if anybody had heard that the ambassador was sodomized. Yes. I had read about a report in the Washington Times that mentioned two news sources that had printed stories about this: both a Lebanese paper and a Libyan paper. I answered a question and revealed the source of the information. I shared the information requested in the discussion. It is clearly evident to anyone with minimal comprehension skills that I wasn’t offering my opinion, just relaying information. Why would a raging mob sodomize a victim? I don’t know, but I watched an online video that showed that’s exactly what happened when Qadaffi was killed.

        I’ve also read from a number of sources that the ambassador was homosexual. If this is true, why isn’t it more widely reported? If this is true, why would he be sent as an ambassador to a country where this practice is punishable by death?

        Now that Scott Brown is behind, he’s moving more to the middle, distancing himself from Romney and stressing that he’s an “independent”. It’s really fascinating to watch this play out.

        Brown isn’t the only Republican candidate for Senate distancing himself from Romney.

        But downticket, Romney’s fellow Republicans — specifically those who find themselves in tight races — are finding his remarks to be toxic. Sen. Dean Heller (R-Nev.), who is in a tight reelection battle against Rep. Shelley Berkley (D-Nev.), had emerged as the favorite of late, owing to Berkley getting caught up in an ethics investigation. But this donor party video has forced Heller to put some distance between himself and Romney, with Heller insisting that he has a “very different view of the world” than his party’s standard-bearer. Rosalind S. Helderman of the Washington Post captures Heller’s remarks:

        “Keep in mind, I have five brothers and sisters. My father was an auto mechanic. My mother was a school cook. I have a very different view of the world,” Heller said. “And as United States Senator, I think I represent everyone, and every vote’s important. Every vote’s important in this race. I don’t write off anybody.”

        Brown brought up Warren’s Native American heritage during the debate last night. After bringing it up, he said, “As you can see, clearly she’s not.” It was absolutely disgusting.
