Crazy Conservatives - Double Standards Edition

I really do try not to talk about him but the patron saint of the Tea Party party is brewing up a kettle of crazy in Becksylvania. The man clearly needs an intervention.
Last week, the conservative broadcaster Glenn Beck called on Christians to leave their churches if they hear preaching about social or economic justice, saying they were code words for Communism and Nazism.
Seriously. If he was some schmuck hollering this stuff on a street corner in NYC, he'd be in Bellevue on the psyche ward by now. In any event, as you might imagine, the truly compassionate Christians are pushing back on that crazy meme.

Rove has been on a road trip pushing his personal rewriting of history with a book release tour. He made the mistake of rewriting Jake Tapper's dialogue in one of his rose colored vignettes and Jake destroyed him with an impeccably polite but deadly debunk. Worth reading in full if only for the delightful review of Rove's really dirty tricks.

Then there's the perennial question, why is it that "family values" Republicans have sex scandals and not only suffer no censure but are often reelected, while Democrat ones end in resignation?

And Walmart sucks. Kid with sinus cancer and a brain tumor fired after 5 years because he was using prescribed medical marijuana as a pallative, so he could do his job so well that he was named associate of the year. And they're contesting his unemployment benefits.

Sounds to me like the kid's wages were getting up there and they wanted to get rid of him so they could hire someone at a lower rate. Just heartless. But according to SCOTUS this monster corporation is a person. Trying times.
