It appears that Speaker Newt Gingrich and Senator Rick Santorum have both grabbed a hold of Communications Director Eric Fehrnstrom’s comment, “Well, I think you hit a reset button for the fall campaign. Everything changes. It’s almost like an Etch-A-Sketch, you can kind of shake it up and we start all over,” and ran full speed ahead with it.
On Wednesday, March 21st, John Fugelsang, political comedian, was interviewing Romney Communications Director Eric Fehrnstrom on CNN. John asked Eric, “Is there a concern that pressure from Santorum and Gingrich might force the governor to tack so far to the right that it would hurt him with moderate voters in the general election?”

I am sure many of you, if not all of you, have now noticed a new feature here on WordPress…. stats on “Likes” on your blog. I know some other bloggers have commented about the new notification of “likes” which started appearing today, and the stats given somewhat vary. One blogger commented that her stat notification informed her of how many total “Likes” she has on her blog. Mine was different, but I also received TWO today – and it appears as though there is still some debugging to do.
What an absolutely incredible video! An enormous variety of clips primarily of Mitt Romney, with a guest appearance by President Obama, all cut and edited to headline Mitt rapping away. Featuring an Eminem background rap beat from the song “The Real Slim Shady“. If you do not like rap, or even totally disdain rap, no worries here. It is just a quiet, steady beat to provide the momentum of spoken speech.
On Wednesday, March 1, 2006, at a hearing on the proposed Constitutional Amendment to prohibit gay marriage, Jamie Raskin, professor of law at American University, was requested to testify. At the end of his testimony, Republican State Senator Nancy Jacobs said: “Mr. Raskin, my Bible says marriage is only between a man and a woman. What do you have to say about that?”
Sounds like political satire, right? Not in this case. I know many people are anti-Facebook for several reasons. But I have found Facebook to be beneficial, especially with keeping up in the news. I am careful as to who I friend and not afraid to “unfriend” someone if their main purpose is to be an asshole. But I love it as a one-stop source for my news. I “Like” many legitimate pages, and last night, this first image below, created by Tracy Knauss, came across Keith Olbermann’s page.
Too funny! Have to give Scott Brown an “A” for creativity. Brown, who’s locked in a battle with Elizabeth Warren for Ted Kennedy’s old Senate seat, is advised by Eric Fehrnstrom, of the Shawmut Group – who is also one of Mitt Romney’s key advisers.

These beautifully designed pieces or art posters are definitely not for the faint of heart, nor the passive person. They are designed to make a statement to the politicians who feel it is their right to violate a woman’s body with ignorant insane laws. So, just a word of warning, if you are easily offended by language, then these are not for you. Designed by Favianna Rodriguez.
Here is some interesting information about the incorrect use of St “Patty’s” Day – it is actually “Paddy’s.” All this information below is pulled directly from the website of someone who is obviously Irish and very passionate about their heritage. This is not the writing of Motley News – but this correction is quite interesting. It would appear that many of us have been spelling the name of this holiday incorrectly for years. From the site, “Paddy Not Patty“:

Here are some rather unusual, strange and very odd ads from days gone past. Times most certainly have changed. Although some of these ads I could see being used by some of our current politicians in regards to taking women back in time to, once again, be subservient to men.
Peek-a-boo, I see you!

With all the recent news of the insanity spreading like a viral disease throughout our country, the War on Women has begun. I have always seen and believed that there are some rather ignorant people in both of our parties, but this year is much different. The Republican Party wins hands down. Bills are erupting all over the country, states ticking off one-by-one with their own bill which in some manner violates women’s rights.
The beauty of nature.

Today, President Obama revealed his picks for this year’s bracket for the NCAA basketball tournament. His Final Four are too “safe” for my taste, although the rest of his picks are not bad. Obama’s bracket is shown further down this posting. For his Final Four, Obama chose:
According to the Apple website, Photo Booth allows the user to take photo snapshots and video clips with their Mac. The user can send them to friends, use one as an iChat icon, add them to their Address Book, or organize and edit them in iPhoto. The real fun starts when you use the effects and backdrops in Photo Booth.
Great video. When hearing the women quote, word for word, some statements made by some very prominent people, they become even more powerful in exposing the harsh reality of the war the Republican Party has started with women. The GOP has got a serious problem with women. Until they get over their issues, women have got a serious problem with the GOP.
