The Acorn Doesn't Fall Far From the Hypocrite Tree

Liz Cheney, former VP Cheney's daughter was adament about how unnecessary and partisan it was to call for investigations into the Bush/Cheney regime's torture decisions, or Darth Cheney's secret meetings with oil companies and other pollutors to develop their Energy Policy. But, let Joe Sestak, Bill Clinton, and Barack Obama have a discussion regarding Sestak's Sentorial plans and a full-blown investigation of the highest order is necessary.

"There is a lot here that just smells funny", she says in the interview. If the smell test is her criteria, it's good she finally had that olfactory surgery to get her nose working again. It seemed to malfunction for eight years.

Muslim chosen Miss USA... Wrong Wing Goes Crazy

From Think Progress:

– Conservative radio host Debbie Schlussel blamed Fakih’s win on a supposed “politically correct, Islamo-pandering climate” in America and labeled her a “Lebanese Muslim Hezbollah supporter with relatives who are top terrorists.” [5/16/10]

– Right wing pundit and Fox contributor Michelle Malkin ranted that “Fakih’s cheerleaders are too busy tooting the identity politics horn to care what comes out of her mouth” and that “the Miss USA pageant didn’t want to risk the wrath of the open-borders mob.” [5/16/10]

– Conservative author Daniel Pipes, who was briefly appointed by former President George W. Bush to the U.S. Institute of Peace, opined that “this surprising frequency of Muslims winning beauty pageants makes me suspect an odd form of affirmative action.” [5/16/10]

– Fox News’s Gretchen Carlson complained that Woolard’s “informed opinion” may have cost her the crown, and said that Fakih may have won because we live in a “PC society.” [5/17/10

While Teabaggers Whine, Taxes Fall

Amid complaints about high taxes and calls for a
smaller government, Americans paid their lowest
level of taxes last year since Harry Truman's
presidency, a USA TODAY analysis of federal data

Some conservative political movements such as the
"Tea Party" have criticized federal spending as being
out of control. While spending is up, taxes have
fallen to exceptionally low levels.

Federal, state and local taxes — including income,
property, sales and other taxes — consumed 9.2% of
all personal income in 2009, the lowest rate since
1950, the Bureau of Economic Analysis reports. That
rate is far below the historic average of 12% for the
last half-century. The overall tax burden hit bottom
in December at 8.8.% of income before rising
slightly in the first three months of 2010.

"The idea that taxes are high right now is pretty
much nuts,"...
