Video- Orrin Hatch: "Obama has traded in the hard hat for a hipster fedora"


Oh, he is dancing so hard to beat his teabagger primary competition it makes me laugh. Via BuzzFeed.


“In one hour, Mitt Romney showed why women don’t trust him for one minute."


Please go to Livewire for the entire statement, but this was an effective and rapid response coming from President Obama's Deputy Campaign Manager, Stephanie Cutter, regarding Willard Romney's latest flip flop. This time it was about the Blunt Amendment, which would "allow any employer to deny an employee health coverage of anything they found morally objectionable":

In one hour, Mitt Romney showed why women don’t trust him for one minute. It took little more than an hour for him to commit his latest flip-flop. Even worse, he ended up on the wrong side of an issue of critical importance to women.

The Obama campaign just won a battle of words in the War on Women.


Mormon church posthumously baptized slain journalist Daniel Pearl


Here are a few people who the Mormons recently baptized, or almost baptized, posthumously:

  • President Obama’s mother, Stanley Ann Dunham
  • The parents of the late Nazi hunter Simon Wiesenthal
  • Three dead relatives of Holocaust survivor Elie Wisesel (were almost baptized)

Now you can add Jewish journalist Daniel Pearl, with whom I feel a bit of a kinship because we attended the same high school, so this particular inappropriate baptism makes me even more livid than usual.

Pearl was kidnapped and executed by his captors in 2002, not all that long ago. I can't begin to imagine the pain this is causing his family.

Not only is it another embarrassment for the Mormon church, but it's also "a serious breach of church protocol."

Via The Salt Lake Tribune:

According to records, Pearl, who is Jewish, was baptized “by proxy” last summer in a Twin Falls, Idaho, temple — much to the surprise of his parents, who learned of the event this week.

Reached by phone, Pearl’s mother, Ruth, said she and her husband were dismayed when informed of the ceremony by a reporter from the Boston Globe, which first reported the news.

A little respect for others would go a long way, Mormon ministers, because good intentions just aren't enough.
