Right Wing Round-Up

  • Another right-wing smear against Kevin Jennings is debunked.
  • What exactly does the National Republican Congressional Committee mean when it says that Nancy Pelosi needs to be put “in her place”?
  • Glenn Beck continues to lose advertisers.
  • David Weigel is not impressed with the Washington Post’s profile of Orly Taitz.
  • Good As You: Last week we told you all about Donald Mendell, the guidance counselor who has a history of opposing gays in the Pine Tree State, claiming that gays “ridicule tradition and belief in natural law” and that their marriages constitute “a change that strikes to the heart of the Sacraments.” So with “charming” rhetoric like that, it was of course only a matter of time before “Yes on 1” tapped him to be their latest spokesperson.
  • American Prospect: The Second Coming of Sarah Palin.
  • Finally, Joe The Stand Up Comedian.
