Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens announced today that he will retire this summer. The good news is that President Obama gets to appoint a new Supreme Court Justice. The not-so-good news is that he can hardly do any better than Justice Stevens. And bad news is that the Republicans aren’t about to let him. Now Republicans in the Senate will have something to block besides unemployment benefits. Between those, a nuclear weapons treaty with Russia, and now a Supreme Court appointment, the Republicans in the Senate have a lot on their “to block” list. Meanwhile, Sarah Palin is trying to go one-on-one with President Obama over nuclear weapons policy. Ironic—Palin going after Obama on a complex issue is kind of like attacking a nuclear-armed nation with rocks and stones. Palin said Obama’s new nuclear policy was the equivalent of a kid in a playground fight saying “Go ahead, punch me in the face and I’m not going to retaliate.” The best part was President Obama’s response to Palin. He said “I really have no response. Because last I checked, Sarah Palin’s not much of an expert on nuclear issues.” I love it! Obama essentially said that responding to Sarah Palin would be like debating nuclear policy with the cast of “The Jersey Shore.” For a look at Sarah Palin’s nuclear expertise, check out what she said during the VP debate in 2008. It’s hard to notice just how rambling Sarah Palin’s response is, because you’re too busy laughing at the way she pronounces “nukular.” What is it with rightwingers and the proper pronunciation of the word “nuclear”? I say you shouldn’t be allowed to have your finger on the button if you can’t get your tongue around the word. Read the full blog…POLITICSREP. FRANK EXPLAINS CAUSE OF HYPER-PARTISANSHIP TO LENO"Rep.

REAGAN: THE GREAT AMERICAN SOCIALIST"Socialism has been much in the news for some months. Recently, some GOP stalwarts charged President Obama with preaching the heresy.
