Defriend Republicans

Now we will really need a Dislike button on Facebook.  The Republicans plan to stream a  debate on Facebook.

If you support freedom and small government, as in keeping government out of your personal lives, Republicans are not your friends.

If you support fiscal responsibility, Republicans are not your friends.

If you support science and reason over superstition, Republicans are not your friends.

Michele Bachmann’s Headaches

As much as I don’t like Michele Bachmann for other reasons, I am very skeptical of the claims being spread today that her migraines would prevent her from serving as president. Migraines do not cause nutty right wing views, and can be controlled with medications. Most likely this is an exaggerated claim which ultimately comes from an opposing Republican candidate. If Bachmann can withstand the rigors of a presidential campaign, I will believe her campaign’s statement that she is medically capable of serving as president. There are plenty of reasons other than migraines why Bachmann should not become president.
