Politics: Here’s a little kibble for Tea Partiers and anti-Tea Partiers

  • The ManifestoDick Armey, former House Majority Leader, published a manifesto in today’s Wall Street Journal (along with Matt Kibbe) explaining what the “Tea Party Movement” wants. It’s epic. “But let us be clear about one thing,” they write. “The tea party movement is not seeking a junior partnership with the Republican Party, but a hostile takeover of it.”


    The antidoteIn case you’re a lefty and need an antidote after reading that whole thing, some genius satirist decided to make a bunch of faux Modern Tea Party shirts with funny slogans. And all of them are rip-roaringly hilarious. Trust us. We can’t stop laughing. source

Politics: Obama’s state dinner plays like a lefty’s night out

  • Who’s invited? A ton of Obama staffers and anticipated Obama staffers will be there tonight. And a couple of big-name Hollywood types. And some who kind of span both celebrity and Obama staff, like Kal Penn. Oh, and Rahm Emanuel’s brother Ari, who was the inspiration behind Jeremy Piven’s “Entourage” character.
  • Who’s not invitedA lot of Republicans. Sen. Dick Lugar and Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal are pretty much the most likely tighty righties holding down the fort among the 300 guests. Fox news is already playing it off as a major slight for some reason. What did you expect? You haven’t exactly done him any favors. source
