I watched with disgust when Glenn a href=”http://www.pjtv.com/video/Tea_Party_Convention_2010/Instapundit_Interview_With_Wingnuts_Author%2C_John_Avlon%3A_Joe_Farah_%26_The_Birthers_Are_Nuts/3069/”interviewed a guy named John Avlon/a at the Nashville Tea Party Convention. No, I wasn’t disgusted with Glenn, that wouldn’t be possible. It was just a bad feeling I had about Avlon; he’s one of those Democratic shills that pose as a centrist or “independent” with a pretense that he is “fair and balanced.” br /br /You know the guy, the one that pretends to even be a bit right-leaning at times (he was Giuliani’s speech writer) or centrist while left-leaning outlets such as CNN or “The Daily Beast” get him on to badmouth Republicans and conservatives, all in the guise of “doing them a favor,” but really being more of a back-stabber than anything else. br /br /I was listening to Rush Limbaugh today playing a clip of Avlon with some guest host on Anderson Cooper’s show discussing how people like Limbaugh are the saboteurs of Washington and he hopes they fail. Funny, Avlon seems a href=”http://www.thedailybeast.com/blogs-and-stories/2010-02-23/washingtons-20-saboteurs/?cid=tag:all1″fixated on saboteurs,/a yet he seems to be one himself. I guess it takes one to know one. A a href=”http://www.thedailybeast.com/blogs-and-stories/2010-02-23/washingtons-20-saboteurs/#comment_486689″commenter at the Daily Beast/a put it best: “Mr. Avlon needs to separate himself from the rest of the wingnuts he writes about, but instead he sips from the same glass.”br /br /Anyway, Mr. Avlon has a new book out that he is pitching called, a href=”http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0984295119?ie=UTF8tag=wwwviolentkicomlinkCode=as2camp=1789creative=9325creativeASIN=0984295119″span style=”font-style:italic;”Wingnuts: How the Lunatic Fringe is Hijacking America./span/aimg src=”http://www.assoc-amazon.com/e/ir?t=wwwviolentkicoml=as2o=1a=0984295119″ width=”1″ height=”1″ border=”0″ alt=”" style=”border:none !important; margin:0px !important;” / Though he pretends that “a wingnut is someone on the far-right or far-left wing of the political spectrum,” the back cover betrays his true bias against conservatives. “From Revolutionary War-inspired ‘Tea Party’ protests to the health-care town hall hijackings, principled policy opposition to government spending has taken a sharp right turn into Crazytown.” No mention of the kooks on the left on the back cover.br /br /Avlon seems to think guys like Rush Limbaugh or Glenn Beck are toxic to our democracy–making people into angry haters. I disagree. Rather than a span style=”font-style:italic;”toxin,/span I think Rush Limbaugh is an span style=”font-style:italic;”antibody/span that is neutralizing the damage done by parasitic liberals who would have us all believe that going along to get along is the right thing to do–be it on health care, global warming legislation, or higher taxes. I feel strongly that going along with these things is the surest way to destroy democracy. I guess that makes me a “wingnut” too.
This is one silly and counterproductive attack on the Obama administration by conservatives that should cease.

Take a look at this video of a Romanian teacher who slaps a cop (thanks to a href=”http://viralfootage.com/?p=5904″John Hawkins for the link)/a. He slaps her back:br /br /object width=”425″ height=”344″param name=”movie” value=”http://www.youtube.com/v/hZmf9G2B4Agcolor1=0xb1b1b1color2=0xcfcfcfhl=en_USfeature=player_embeddedfs=1″/paramparam name=”allowFullScreen” value=”true”/paramparam name=”allowScriptAccess” value=”always”/paramembed src=”http://www.youtube.com/v/hZmf9G2B4Agcolor1=0xb1b1b1color2=0xcfcfcfhl=en_USfeature=player_embeddedfs=1″ type=”application/x-shockwave-flash” allowfullscreen=”true” allowScriptAccess=”always” width=”425″ height=”344″/embed/objectbr /br /I have a couple of thoughts on the video. First, if a man who was not a police officer slapped a woman like that in the US, he would be taken in for abuse and second, the woman thinks nothing of hitting the officer and then cries like a baby when he hits her back. Women are so used to hitting men without being hit back that she is stunned that he did so. We don’t know what took place prior so it is hard to comment more but I would like reader’s opinion on what they think of the video.br /br /Update: Okay, so a href=”http://upcoming.current.com/search?q=Romanian+Police+Officer+Slaps+Teacher%2C+She+Cries”the cop was asking her about charges of child abuse./a Slapping a cop will really help her case. The problem is, women are not taught the boundaries of violence, therefore they think it’s acceptable to use with any man. But many police officers are men and hitting them is not going to fly.

Don’t you love all the scientific evidence that politicians use when trying to ram through pet bills that they want passed? In this case, Harry Reid says that unemployment is causing men to engage in domestic violence. Rather than apologize when asked to by men’s groups, he responds like someone with an agenda, a href=”http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2010/02/23/reid-lands-hot-water-domestic-violence-comments/”rather than any facts/a (thanks to the reader who emailed the article):br /br /blockquoteReid’s office responded by e-mailing articles that show domestic violence is increasing with unemployment, including one published by the Atlantic Monthly. And Reid repeated the assertion Tuesday, saying that two people who run domestic crisis shelters in Las Vegas told him that the high unemployment has “created lots of additional work for them they would rather not have.”br /br /”There is no question that people being out of work causes more people to be involved in domestic violence. I mean, I didn’t make that up. I was told that by two people who run domestic crisis shelters,” he said./blockquotebr /br /Wow, two whole people and an article published in span style=”font-style:italic;”The Atlantic Monthly/span-well, that just proves it then. Thanks to a href=”http://www.mediaradar.org/”RADAR /afor standing up a href=”http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2010/02/23/reid-lands-hot-water-domestic-violence-comments/”to this misandrist:/abr /br /blockquoteRespecting Accuracy in Domestic Abuse Reporting (RADAR) took Reid to task for his comments, arguing that the $787 billion stimulus package that he supported last year funneled close to half of the spending to programs that women while 80 percent of those who lost jobs in the recession were men.br /br /”Grant for the moment that, in spite of all the scientific research to the contrary, maybe Sen. Reid is naïve enough to believe that only men, and not women, turn violence to their partners when unemployed,” the group said in a press release. “What kind of misogynist promotes a bill as unjust as last year’s massive stimulus package while sincerely believing that doing so will cause more women to be beaten?”/blockquotebr /br /It’s hard to say if Reid is a misogynist or a misandrist but I guess it depends on what bill he needs passed.
