The self-correcting conservative Democratic liar problem.

In today’s Morning Jolt Jim Geraghty observed, while implicitly dismissing former (involuntarily) Rep. Kathy Dahlkemper’s (D, PA) sudden getting religion over Obamacare for the cynical political move that it probably is, that the myth of the conservative Democratic Congressman was, well, a myth – and that he’s been saying that since 2010.  Well, I’ve been saying that, too – so I decided to look at all the examples of so-called conservative Democrats found in that article, and where they are no.  The results were amazingly gratifying:

  • Bart Gordon (forced to retire, 2010)
  • Bobby Bright (removed, 2010)
  • Dan Boren (cutting and running, 2012)
  • Gene Taylor (removed, 2010)
  • Heath Shuler (cutting and running, 2012)
  • Joe Donnelly (switching out to lose Senate race, 2012)
  • John Barrow (going out fighting [cruelly redistricted], 2012)
  • S.H. Sandlin (removed, 2010)
  • Walt Minnick (removed, 2010)

Unicorn: The Other Whi… CEASE AND DESIST! CEASE AND DESIST!

How in God’s name did I miss this?

MOUNTAIN VIEW, California, June 21, 2010 – Geeknet, Inc. (NASDAQ: LNUX), the online network for the global geek community, announces its public apology to the National Pork Board for unintended confusion surrounding unicorn meat versus pork.

Recently, the National Pork Board issued a “cease and desist” warning to ThinkGeek, a Geeknet company and the premier retailer for the global geek community, regarding its April 1 product launch of canned unicorn meat, which can be seen at http://www.thinkgeek.com/stuff/looflirpa/.

“It was never our intention to cause a national crisis and misguide American citizens regarding the differences between the pig and the unicorn,” said Scott Kauffman, President and CEO of Geeknet. “In fact, ThinkGeek’s canned unicorn meat is sparkly, a bit red, and not approved by any government entity.”

I need to not get out of the house more, clearly.
