Our pet political platypus lives out back in a lovely watery habitat, but he does get a bit weary of the city, especially in hot weather. So we’ve been scouting around for a place to send Pauly off for a restful fun-filled vacation, and we’ve discovered the perfect thing. It’s tea party summer camp!
A group called the “Tampa 912 Project” (which come to think of it has faint echoes of Glenn Beck, doesn’t it?) will host a one-week seminar in mid-July for children aged 8–12, guaranteed to teach our little platypus the “principles on which our nation was founded.” Those principles include: “America is good,” “I believe in God and He is the center of my life” and “I work hard for what I have and I will share it with whoever I want to. Government cannot force me to be charitable.”
What nice little cherubs they will be after a week of this! (more…)
Interesting week this week. We had a debate of Republicans in New Hampshire, including a declared candidacy from Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN). And now it looks like Jon Huntsman will be joining her next week.
It’s Friday, though, which means it’s your time. What would you like to talk about this week?
Don’t see an article on a particular topic, but want to talk about it somewhere? This is Open Mic. Talk about whatever you want, but stay respectful.
We create a new Open Mic every week to give a clean slate, but feel free to add to this topic at any time.
