Perhaps the craziest person in America
-Headline of the Day-
"Sharron Angle's D.C. lawyer wants 'whack job' Tea Partier out of the race."
You ever wonder who might be too crazy for crazy desert hobo Sharron Angle? Me neither. But now we know anyway! It's third-party teabagger candidate Scott Ashjian, who's the other person running against her and some Democrat guy no one ever heard of. Angle's campaign is afraid that Ashjian could split the frootloop vote and give the election to the Harry Reid guy, whoever he is.
So Angle lawyer Cleta Mitchell has been leaving the Nevada Tea Party voice messages that go something like this: "I have been practicing law a long time and let me tell you I can settle anything. But I gotta have a meeting of the minds and you got a whack job you are dealing with and he has got a lot of ego involved here and he says he is getting 18, 19 percent of the vote, well that’s great, costing Sharron the election, costing us the election."
When someone who works for Sharron Angle calls you a "whack job," then you should probably call Guinness and see if you qualify for some sort of record. (Political Carnival)

"U.S. apologizes for Guatemala STD experiments."
Stem cell research isn't science gone mad, shooting up Guatemalans with gonorrhea and syphilis and encouraging them to go have lots of sex with uninfected people so you can study how disease spreads is science gone mad.
Update your talking points accordingly. (MSNBC)
