Defending..ugh..Drudge

February 29, 2008

We here at the TM Experience are no fans of Drudge. We believe that that hat he wears is just silly, and went out with the great Francis Albert Sinatra. That being said, here is Taylor Marsh, concerning the revelation that Prince Harry was serving in Afghanistan:

Drudge blows Harry’s cover. All that matters to Drudge is a scoop, so I’m not going to link to him. But if a Democratic blogger or journalist did this the wingnuts would rightfully blow the roof.

Some Republicans have no scruples at all when it comes to protecting or respecting the military, whether it’s over there or over here. The story of Prince Harry’s duty was embargoed, until Drudge blew it across his blog. Now it’s all over the media and CNN.

Um, nope. Sorry, Taylor, Drudge was simply reporting a story that had been out since January:

The British media had agreed on a news blackout on his tour of duty amid fear for the 23-year-old royal’s safety and that of his squad.

But New Idea magazine’s website broke the news, followed by a German website and then the influential American internet site the Drudge Report.

Once again, Taylor goes for ratings rather than truth. We here at the TM Experience have informed Taylor of her error in the comments to her page, but alas, it does not seem to have made it past the censor. Though this did:

Yes, I’ve been checking their schedules everyday and I am really struck by Hillary, Bill, AND Chelsea’s total commitment and dedication to this campaign. They are the true heroes in all of this.

Soooo heroic to campaign for President, something the Clintons have been doing for 8 years. OF COURSE Chelsea and Bill are going to dedicate themselves to the campaign! These folks would find heroism in Clinto passing gas, I think.

Marsh No Longer a Democrat?

February 29, 2008

Jazz at The Middle Earth Journal points out something we here at the TM Experience had not noticed before, but it seems that our good friend Taylor Marsh has removed ‘Democrat’ from her masthead.

 I remember when Taylor Marsh’s banner used to read, “Democrat Taylor Marsh.” Now it just says “Taylor Marsh” at the top. At this point I have to wonder… did you drop the “Democrat” anticipating a day when you would have to carry water for the GOP in an effort to derail Obama in support of Hillary Clinton?

This a good point, and looking at Taylor’s masthead again, I do see that she no longer seems to be a Democrat. And looking in her ‘about’ section, she seems to make no mention of her affiliation with the party. Hmmmm…
Okay, bed. We will update more this weekend!

Universal Insurance!!!

February 27, 2008

Rough mood here at the TM Experience today. So let’s discuss an important topic in the universal coverage debate that no one has mentioned, least of all those folks over at Taylor’s! What is the topic? Why, Robots!!!

A Real Liberal?

February 27, 2008

Maidyalook2 claims that  “The man can’t say the word liberal without bringing up Republicans and Independents. He”s a closet Republican just like Liberman.”

Well, you know, I wonder who said the following? (Hint: It was not Obama): 

“You know…it is a word that originally meant that you were for freedom … that you were willing to stand against big power and on behalf of the individual. Unfortunately, in the last 30, 40 years, it has been turned up on its head, and it’s been made to seem as though it is a word that describes big government, totally contrary to what its meaning was in the 19th and early 20th century.”

“I prefer the word ‘progressive,’…which has a real American meaning, going back to the progressive era at the beginning of the 20th century. I consider myself a modern progressive.”

Any guesses on who said it? You guessed it! Hillary Clinton! You win..or doooooo you?

Voting with the Vagina

February 27, 2008

Jonas88 says:

“I also think that Emily’s list needs to rethink their approach. Its obvious that their approach of supporting women for congress is not working when women that were supported by emily’s list then turn around and dont support another women candidate. I think ifyou are going togetmoney from emily’s list the least you can do is support other women candidates!”

Sooooo….women have to automatically support the female candidate? What if she is..gasp..a Republican? What if..gasp…she is not the best candidate? Are women supposed to vote with their brains and hearts, or their reproductive organs? Aren’t you the same folks that get upset because the majority of African-Americans are supporting the African-American candidate? Hypocrisy..and they do not get it. To these friends of Taylor’s, women supporting Obama are abused or idiots. (yeah, I referred to my own posts..Taylor inspires me!)

Criticism and Idol Worship

February 27, 2008

“Oh my – you’re a little over the top Kos people, don’t you think? You really can’t sleep at night if your idol gets criticized.” Pot, meet kettle.

Experience?

February 27, 2008

Anne:

“Hillary got a grilling over NAFTA, was made to be responsible for what her husband did as president…”

Um, Anne, isn’t Clinton running on her ’35 years of experience’? Isn’t she including her husband’s presidency? You can’t have it both ways, though that is a Clinton trademark. Ya take the good, ya take the bad…

Stupid Self Hating Women

February 27, 2008

“Women alone, without any men voting for Hillary Clinton could make her president. But they won’t. Because many of them hate and revile her and when asked why, they don’t even know. Poor brainwashed, braindead little twits who evidently embrace their status as second-class citizens.”

I have no snark. This is just stupid. Really. Stupid. Tell Mrs. Bostondreams she is brainwashed and braindead. The woman is my idol, and brighter than me, and the person I admire most in the world. kenoshaMarge, you are an ASSHOLE.

Worried?

February 27, 2008

Mamamimi declares,

“My only consolation is watching Fox beat up on Obama! I think they’re getting worried about him.”

Err..weren’t you folks the ones who just a bit ago were declaring that the Republicans WANT him to win the nod because beating him would be cake? Why would they worry if that’s the case? You aren’t saying the prefer, gasp, Hillary to win?

Female Obama Supporters are in an Abusive Relationship

February 27, 2008

Northwest Rain laments how her party has abandoned her:

“Since the Democratic Party has left me — and ALL women (even the ones who loved to be abused) — I guess I’m an Independent again.”

Once again, if you are not for Hillary, you are not a true feminist. Better tell that to these folks, or these ones:
