    So, this whole Trayvon Martin thing... doesn't sound good, does it?

    It's baffling how Zimmerman avoided arrest. It's almost as if it was one man's word against the other's, but because one of the people who could testify was dead, the living person's version of events was deemed the truth.

    Ugly situation. I don't think the fella is going to get away with it though. Hope not.

    I'd give mine a bonus for using birth control, better than maternity leave!

    It's pretty fucking shocking the view on women that's been shining through american politics recently. I truly and hopefully hope womens vote beat these troglodyte views into the ground.

    I sometimes wonder which is worse, Deep South or Middle East.

    It's republicans; this shit is going on in New Hampshire, Utah and Alaska, none of which are near the South, let alone Deep South.

    It did make me laugh when questions were raised in sections of the press why Cameron didn't have any talks with leading Republicans while in DC as a fellow conservative politician. Er, I'd think it pretty bloody obvious really.

    Conservative art is awesome. I love how subtle it is.

    This is pretty good too.

    The smear campaign against Trayvon Martin

    This is getting nastier by the day.

    Reads more like random blogs, and Conservative websites are trying to smear him, hardly widespread.

    Thanks to this the US is going to have to endure legions of stories about teh evil hoodie. Thankfully there aren't any national tabloids and the attention span of the media can be measured with a fly's calendar.

    Last night's Daily Show piece was amusing. Made me feel sorry for news anchors, especially those who had to appear on the same show as Geraldo.

    Still attempts to discredit him though, aren't they? Anyway, Fox News are even getting in on the act, albeit to a lesser extent.

    Fox News in on it. Hardly localized or narrow.

    Revolting how these 'rationalisations' bypass the fact the kid was SHOT DEAD.

    Quite tame by Fox standards really, you would expect to see similar comments over here as well.

    I'm not condoning anything though and agree that the whole argument is totally ridiculous.

    There's a huge response form liberal-leaning actions sites. Lots of petitions. And these often have an effect.

    There was a huge positive response to Susan G Kolmen yanking funding from Planned Parenthood. They raised the amount from Kolmen in under a month, (425 of that was mine).

    The idiocy gets all the attention. The pushback doesn't get near the same airtime, but it's strong. It's also reassuring because the visible onslaught of the right and the utter fucking shite they spread is depressing and worrying.

    That's pretty shocking.

    Next up, when you arrive at an interview they collect your house keys and search your house.

    So, apparently, Rick Santorum very nearly uses the 'n' word when talking about Obama.



    I can hear the first syllable, hmm, what else could he have been about to say?

    Then again, maybe we shouldn't be surprised that a right wing bigot is, erm, bigoted.

    Pink slime.

    After careful consideration I've come to the conclusion that capitalism works brilliantly well. I've long wondered why Americans don't want to vote for policies that would improve their lives directly. The root cause is that actually some of them do. The people who are voting are the well-educated (and thereby rich as education is expensive) who vote to keep their own position good. People are brainwashed into believing the American dream. Not by a conspiracy, no, not at all. Instead it's all individuals who are working in their own best interest. Capitalism works great!

    He did well to even get noticed, considering he was such a lightweight. Although arguably it wasn't because of any strength on his part; he was just the last in a long line of Not-Romneys who had flamed out before him.

    I will miss his crazy foreign policy pronouncements. My personal favorite was his conviction that the Arab Spring really should have started in Iran. Or that there is no such thing as a 'Palestinian' on the West Bank; they're all Israeli.

    The primary is going to be even more tedious now. Maybe Romney could nominate Palin as his VP again.

    I wonder if this story will gain any traction. As is always the case when it comes to deaths during police operations involving ethnic minorities, there is always a huge suspicion that it was racially motivated, but whether or not this is the case here, one thing that will always strike me, is how the police will always look after their own, even when the copper in charge looks like a complete prick.
