News you can use all day
Let's see, dress up Fox News Contributor Steve Crowley as a furry and steal kids candy to teach them a lesson about socialism and The Carebear? What could go wrong?
- Jobs, jobs, jobs! - Well, a better than expected October jobs report showing 171,000 people were hired, and the unemployment rate holding steady, and the August numbers were raised upwards from 142,000 to 192,000. It looks like Former GE CEO Jack Welch and other Fox screamers are going to be in full-throat screaming about BLS cooked-books again today. (Think Progress)
- Money and Marriage - The National Organization for Marriage (NOM)--founded by famous homophobe and unmarried mother Maggie Gallagher (the ethically challenged shill hired by Chimpy to promote marriage in her syndicated column, and who never disclosed it)--has donated $1.65M to defeat marriage equality in Minnesota. One of NOM's chief talking points is that they have never lost a fight over denying marriage when it is on a ballot. (Star Tribune)
- God's Gift of Rape Babies - Notable nutty forced-birther Richard Mourdock's support for his Senate race in Indiana collapsed following his comments on rape. "The Howey Politics Indiana/DePauw University Battleground Poll shows Democratic Rep. Joe Donnelly leading Mourdock, the state treasurer, 47 percent to 36 percent." So score another Dim win thanks to the Teabaggers knocking out an incumbent whom they did not see as being conservative enough. (National Journal)
