At great risk to their personal safety and careers, GOP insiders smuggled out an early draft of the Republican Tea Party’s Pledge to America and have provided it exclusively to PlanetPOV.

As you’ll see, this draft is quite startling in how frankly it presents the Tea Party driven sensibilities of the new Republican Party. It’s not surprising that this version was greatly toned down and homogenized in the pledge document that was publicly released.

And so, here is the draft of the Republican Tea Party’s Pledge that they never wanted you to see:

Pretty depressing, Patsy.

In today’s paper there was an article about Rupert Murdoch’s “gift” of $1 million to the Republican candidate for Governor here in Ohio. Of course he covered his tracks by donating the money to the Republican Governors Association, which laundered it into “legality.” Now the airways are spammed with anti-Strickland ads. Strickland is financially swamped in a tsunami of dirty money.

Mark Shields gave an impassioned argument tonight on PBS against the Citizens United ruling. David Brooks blandly said that he sees no evidence that money changes anything in elections. Argh…

edit: this looks like a job for Fearless Leader, I tried a few tricks without much luck. Sorry

Thanks, boomer. I just got a weird glitch in the ‘puter and had to reboot, still a bit quirky.
Mean while try this site, kids. Good ammunition for corps sending jobs overseas.

Unbelievable! What a scumbag! That was three times, right? The guy is obviously revealing something truly demented about himself.

Simple slip-up when he interchanged the two, in one sentence?
And who does call OBL by his first name in the press? What like Cher?

Sounded like he’d had a couple of drinks beforehand. His words were too slow, deliberate, and a little slurry.

He said it more than once. How many Freudian slips does it take before we can call him an ignorant a-hole?

Too bad I’d been unaware of this guy…

Anyone catch the surreal Rachel interview that she should have cut off within two minutes?

Yes, Kihrad! I saw the whole thing, excruciatingly painful to witness,
like watching a car wreck in slow motion!
He was twitching and squirming all the way through.
Since when is a scientist NOT open to debate?

Wow, Adlib! Do you sleep? Or, do you have little elves and cyber pixies that work for you while you sleep? Because it is easy to see the amount of time, effort, and dedication put into this, and for the worthiest of causes! Smashing!
