Rick Santelli: Not America’s New White Jesus

Rick Santelli, who you may remember from his LARP rally trading floor rant of a few days ago, is now alleging that the White House has threatened his family. Politico has opined that Obama faces a “nation of Santellis” based on a misleading Rasmussen poll (is it just me, or…

Fundnut: Bush cursed the White House with the Koran

Apparently same-sex marriage will result in curses on the U.S. Hilariously, Dear Leader is apparently responsible for his own political woes because…

Without additional comment

I will vote for McCain if I have to in order to keep a dangerously unqualified man out of the White House. TalkLeft commenter. Update: From comments below: Thanks for pointing out that comment. I deleted it. It was inappropriate. TalkLeft will support the Democratic nominee, whoever it turns out…
