Right Wing Leftovers

  • The Sam Adams Alliance released a reported today entitled “The Early Adopters: Reading the Tea Leaves” which analyzes the issues motivating Tea Party leaders.
  • It turns out that the man who killed an anti-choice protester in Michigan last year was motivated primarily by the fact that his mother did not approve of the man’s signs.
  • What do you know? Despite all the right-wing claims, an investigation by the Brooklyn District Attorney’s Office found that ACORN broke no laws in the infamous “pimp/prostitute” sting video.
  • A judge has ruled that SunTrust Bank can name Pat Robertson as a defendant in the bank’s attempt to recover more than $3.6 million from a trust and oil company controlled by Regent University’s president and chancellor.
  • Even by Peter LaBarbera’s standards, this makes absolutely no sense.
  • Finally, the quote of the day from Reverend Dr. Charles Nestor, a senior fellow for public policy at the National Clergy Council, explaining how to reform out health care system: “The answer is not government bureaucratic institutions with high cost, red tape, and poor outcomes. The answer is personal responsibility for health and healthcare, conduct that promotes health, [and] trust in a powerful God who says, ‘I am the Lord who heals you.'”
