Isaiah's The World Today Just Nuts "Priorities" from last night is above. And that's funny. Not funny?
The news from April Fulton (NPR): Ben & Jerry's ice cream is not -- despite claiming otherwise -- all natural. They're removing the claim -- which has been on the ice cream forever -- from the containers.
We have a Ben & Jerry's near my church. Ice cream shop that sells Ben & Jerry's ice cream. And when we used to get done with church, my folks would take me there and we'd have some ice cream and talk for a bit. And always it was 'good' because it was "all natural."
There are few things that could surprise me about food but learning that Ben & Jerry's is not all natural really is a shocker to me.
I thought they were. I believed they were. They certainly said they were.
And they were progressives. Before 2008, I would have added, "And progressives don't lie!" But, as we now know, progressives are among the all time worst liars. Look at John Nichols.
I don't know the Jennifer Palmieri is a liar, but she is a dope. On the topic of Barack's low numbers, she weighs in at Politico:
A Gallup poll shows that Clinton's re-elect number was also 38 percent in October 1994. So not sure this number represents a situation President Obama needs to "turn around." Seems kind of affirming, actually
Really? But Jen Pal, Bill didn't have the soaring numbers Barry did, now did he? He didn't go into office with 70% approval. He didn't have the press on his side. He didn't have most of what whiney ass Barack has had. And if we look at the approval ratings for both, we see Bill's trouble in 1994 was most evident in September -- early September.
In other words, Jen, they're nothing alike. So find your affirmation up your ass, if you must, but don't pretend it exists in those numbers.
