When you vote for a modern Republican, you are voting for a Bad Person.

I don't like her but this is just unfair

Stepping back for the good of the family

by digby

It looks like the big boys are telling the girl that it's time for her to step aside for the good of the cause:

Iowa evangelical leader Bob Vander Plaats called Michele Bachmann and urged her to drop out of the race and endorse Rick Santorum, a source with knowledge of the conversation told POLITICO Tuesday.
The phone call took place Saturday, three days before Vander Plaats announced he – but not his organization, the Family Leader – was backing Santorum.

Bachmann declined, the source said, noting to Vander Plaats that she has consistently polled ahead of Santorum in the race and still does.

“It just makes a lot of sense to me,” he said. “You need a team to run a country. So this isn’t about one person, this isn’t just about Rick Santorum."
[...]
Perry spokesman Ray Sullivan said Perry spoke with Vander Plaats on Friday, but dropping out and backing Santorum “absolutely did not come up.”

Sorry Michele. It's getting close to the caucuses and that means it's time for people to start demanding that candidates drop out. And since your fellow travelers are all patriarchal throwbacks they will, of course, tell you that you need to make the sacrifice while leaving the man's man Rick Perry alone.

This happens in Democratic politics as well, although it isn't confined to the women. Just before the voting begins there is always a call for people to drop out. And if it remains undecided for a while, the calls become shrill and cacophonous. It's the damnedest thing. An awful lot of people don't want to take a chance on the voters making the decision.

But asking someone to drop out in favor of some single digit nobody who doesn't have a ... prayer, may be a first. Singling out the woman pretty much says it all.
But maybe Michele shouldn't have been so eager to serve as the boys' waitress at that religion debate. It looks like it gave them the wrong idea...

Study: Wealth Inequality In America May Be Worse Than It Was In Anc...

The 99 Percent Movement effectively changed the American political debate from debt and deficits to income inequality, highlighting the fact that income inequality has increased so much in the U.S. that it is now more unequal than countries like Ivory Coast and Pakistan. While those numbers are startling, a study from two historians suggests that American wealth inequality may actually be worse than it was in Ancient Rome — a society built on slave labor, a defined class structure, and centuries of warfare and conquest.

In the United States, the top 1 percent controls roughly 40 percent of the nation’s wealth. According to the study, which examined Roman ledgers, previous estimates, imperial edicts, and Biblical passages, Rome’s top 1 percent controlled less than half that at the height of its economic power, as Tim De Chant notes at Per Square Mile:

Their target was the state of the economy when the empire was at its population zenith, around 150 C.E. Schiedel and Friesen estimate that the top 1 percent of Roman society controlled 16 percent of the wealth, less than half of what America’s top 1 percent control.

Of course, the millions of Romans at the bottom of the empire’s class structure — the conquered and enslaved, the poorest Romans, and the women who had little civic or economic empowerment — would probably disagree with the study’s conclusion. Still, it serves as yet another highlight of how large the income gap in the United States has become over the last three decades.

Chart Of The Day

North_South_Korea

Brad Plumer captions:

At the moment, North Korea’s per capita income is less than 5 percent of the South’s. As the Atlantic Council’s Peter Beck puts it, “Each year the dollar value of South Korea’s GDP expansion equals the entire North Korean economy.”

In a way this is a shame, although quite irresponsible, financially. If people didn't have to experience a socially-imposed shame and guilt for being queer, things like this wouldn't happen.

 

Sex Store Purchase Leads to Mayor’s Outing

It was recently discovered that Mayor Greg Davis (R) of Southaven, Miss., spent taxpayers’ money on a number of unnecessary and unapproved expenses, which included thousands of dollars of liquor, expensive meals at a local restaurant and a purchase from a gay sex store, reported the Commercial Appeal in a Dec. 16 article.

Southaven is the state’s third largest city and is a neighboring city and suburb of Memphis, Tenn.
