Rumproast seems to share the sense of awe many of us feel as the NRA tips over into a sort of bizarro type Wayne's World. Wayne is Wayne LaPierre, breathlessly screaming "Annie get your gun," itemizing the conditions we will face as we go to the supermarket: Hurricanes. Tornadoes. Riots. Terrorists. Gangs. Lone criminals. Frankly, Wayne is too mild. He didn't mention zombies. My take is here.
Why can't conservative politicians get their media consultants to stop with the hallucinogens? Michele Bachmann can't keep her two wild and crazy eyes on the camera. She talks to one of the voices in her head, apparently standing off to the side. Bobby Jindal's folksy entrance into camera range comes off like he's been wandering around like a confused bar denizen after a few too many. And now, well... Mad Mike's America can't resist reviewing poor Marco Rubio who proved that you can indeed give a major policy speech while high diving into a little bottle of water. Who the heck put that water so far away? In a bottle! The pastor of our church, with a membership of just a few hundred, is provided water to drink within easy reach, on a stand, in plain view, in a glass, at every worship service. It is routine. I love the guy, but he is not a speaker widely known outside the borders of Missouri. Did it occur to even one advisor to these national figures that a live broadcast to an audience of millions might merit at least one rehearsal? Did I mention putting water in easy reach? On a stand? In a glass? IN A GLASS, people?
As long as there is life, there is a morning after. Tommy Christopher of Mediaite covers Marco Rubio's interview one sleep after his unusual presentation. Unfortunately Senator Rubio gets into substance, and Tommy applies a scalpel. The good Senator should have continued gulping bottled water.
Nancy Hanks at The Hankster links to discussions about whether political party primaries should be functions that are strictly for political parties.
The Heathen Republican examines whether the Republican Party is dying, and concludes that losing a national election does not mean the GOP has collapsed. Quite so. The demise of the Republican Party is based less on 2012 than it is on this.
Infidel 753 explains the significance of Charles Darwin and the mechanism of evolution. My favorite story about Darwin concerned his interaction with a religiously conservative ship's captain who threatened to have Mr. Darwin thrown overboard.
Watching the hardships endured by those poor captives of a disabled cruise ship, it is difficult for me to imagine anyone with a soul so callused as to observe the callamity without laughing. Max's Dad contemplates the coming lawsuits and wishes himself on one of the juries.
This seems a little obscure to me. Conservative James Wigderson covers a Q and A session that included a candidate who once said, in a legal proceeding, that she was discriminated against. Now she is asked if she ever lied under oath. She answers no. James is aghast at the assertion. There she goes again! There must be some reason to think she lied before and is lying now than what James reveals. At least it seems such to me. Can someone explain?

Yeah, it's confusing, and that's why the candidate needs to say more than just "no."
