Even Ben Stein thinks the rich don't pay enough in taxes. Hate to be a buzzkill, but this is how reactionaries become "moderates" -- they stick around long enough for folks to forget all their sins, make one or two painful public concessions, get ridiculed by all the new reactionaries, then star in a lot of sentences beginning with well, at least he doesn't. I guess it's also possible he'll retract the statement in a day or two.
Speaking of "new reactionaries," Rep. Joe Walsh (A-IL) says in a debate that "with modern technology and science," zero pregnant women ever die during childbirth. Except, I suppose, insofar as more women actually die from pregnancy-related complications than they did even 30 years ago. But what are mere facts to a "visionary" like Joe Walsh?
Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) suggests the Lily Ledbetter Fair Pay Act, signed by Mr. Obama in 2009, is little more than a boon to trial lawyers. Attend his poor diction -- when a man utters a phrase like "much of this legislation is in many respects" and talks of "lawsuits that may have nothing to do" with pay equity (all italics mine), he's essentially saying "I'm lying."
CNN's Erick Erickson suggests that early voting somehow dilutes the "civic national commitment" of voting -- then "proudly" (his word!) votes early for Mr. Romney two days later. This is why I always push a la carte cable packaging -- even though I don't watch CNN, I'm still paying for them to be this stupid, and what law of physics should compel me to do that?
Finally, Swedish couple weds in Klingon ceremony, replete with a vow to "unite" against their enemies. No word on whether they consummated the marriage in the traditional Klingon manner, which may result in serious injury.
