Fire alarm wakes DNC delegates at 3 a.m.; Republicans blamed, natch

DNC delegates staying at the Great Wolf Lodge were awoken at 3 a.m. when a fire alarm roused them from their sweet, sweet dreams of Sandra Fluke and Fauxcahontas powwowing in giant vagina costumes.

Employees of the Great Wolf Lodge are investigating the nature of the alarms in the hotel. #TXDNC12 #DNC2012

Is there no end to how far the tentacles of the Kochtopus extend? Will the Bush/Cheney cabal ever leave them in peace?

Fire alarm going off @ our TX Delegation Hotel-Great Wolf Lodge. Is it real, a wolf's prank or politico dirty trick? Ugh! #DNC2012

Dirty politicos! Or, you know, maybe a kitchen fire.

Turns out there was a small kitchen fire, confirming my suspicions that Great Wolf Lodge truly is hell on earth. #DNC2012

Ed Rendell: ‘Seriously depressed … only Mitt can cheer me up’

The former Pennsylvania governor’s got the sports blues, and the only cure is Mitt Romney!

Mitt will cheer up USA RT .@GovEdRendell Seriously depressed. Phils finally out of it. Birds awful. It's so bad only Mitt can cheer me up.

— Legal Immigrant (@votermom) September 24, 2012

Careful there, Gov. Rendell. The Left might think you’re back to criticizing President Obama.

Ed Rendell’s new Twitter account is still unverified, but the Philadelphia Daily News welcomed him to Twitter last week.

Presumably Rendell is hoping for a Romney gaffe to cheer him up, but if clueless, cringe-worthy candidate missteps are his thing, he’s much better off checking out President Obama’s “60 Minutes” interview.

‘Eat, Pray, Love’ author: Go to Hobby Lobby to ‘make a lady have an unwanted baby!’

But War on Women. Or something.

Crafty.

In 2012, Elizabeth Gilbert endorsed President Obama, citing his “admirable character” and her “lifelong commitment to women’s reproductive rights.” Flashback: “Look to your leader, and emulate his behavior.”

With healthcare.gov still not working properly, we can appreciate why the White House would want to emphasize non-Internet means of applying for Obamacare.

Unfortunately, paper, phone, and in-person Obamacare applications probably won’t work as long as healthcare.gov is broken.

This tweeter has the right idea:

If you click on the large orange square, it will fill up with propaganda about how easy it is to enroll in Obamacare. We prefer the unreadable static image.
