On today of all days? @HealthCareTara pimps Vox graphic [screenshot]

http://twitter.com/#!/conkc2/status/514879470910840832

Is it ever really a good day to promote Vox’s work? No. But this day is a particularly bad one. Too bad Tara McGuinness didn’t think of that:

@HealthCareTara Vox RT

Do yourself a favor, cupcake, and next time, save yourself the added embarrassment and check Twitchy first.

Janice Dean’s ‘Throwback Thursday’ photo is awesome

http://twitter.com/#!/reltrug23/status/469470415874961408

Indeed. Fox News’ Janice Dean scored with her #ThrowbackThursday photo. Take a gander:

Planned Parenthood touts ‘free’ contraception; Ignores skyrocketing premiums

http://twitter.com/#!/jessibridges/status/447089116761436160

Not only does somebody have to pay, but thanks to Obamacare, how much more expensive will insurance premiums be in order to get this “free” benefit?

http://twitter.com/#!/PPact/status/447087649300307968

Thanks to skyrocketing premiums, many women will still see a net financial loss for the benefit Planned Parenthood maddeningly pretends is “free.”

Ed Henry destroys Obama is not good at ‘political theater’ claim with one point

http://twitter.com/#!/Neoavatara/status/508638315609079808

Truth.

As Twitchy reported, Obama made the enraging claim that the reason he should not have golfed after his presser on the beheading of James Foley was due to “optics.” That was his lesson learned: He’s just not mindful enough of the “theater of politics,” you see.

WaPo swiftly tried to run to the president’s aide. Lapdogs gotta be lapdogs:

Ah, the days of yore! Speaking of days of yore, Fox News’ Ed Henry crushed the absurd claim with one easy reminder:

Bam.

Michael Moore ‘wowed’ by theory about US response to 9/11 attacks

http://twitter.com/#!/tinyrevolution/status/510106538111823873

The U.S. response to the murder or thousands of people on American soil should have been to do nothing and the world would have been better off? Interesting.

It even seems to have intrigued Michael Moore, so you know it’s nutty:

Wow. RT @tinyrevolution The U.S. would be far far better off today if, in response to 9/11, we'd done literally nothing.

David Sirota falls for fake congressman from nonexistent district

Yes, @RepStevenSmith is a parody account, and yet people continue to fall for it. Tonight’s victim? David Sirota.

sirota-deleted

No, a GOP congressman didn’t refer to President Obama as “George W. Bush in blackface.” Once again, “Rep. Steven Smith” is a parody account.

Lizz Winstead taken in by nonexistent Rep. Steven Smith

Actually, no. Rep. Steven Smith isn’t an elected official, nor does the 15th congressional district he claims to represent exist. The Twitter account has managed to fool quite a few, including “Daily Show” co-creator Lizz Winstead. How could she not respond to this reply?

[Update]

The tweet calling “Rep. Steven Smith” an elected official is gone, but not forgotten. Doesn’t Ms. Winstead know by now that Twitchy is forever?

Kevin Drum on Bergdahl concerns: GOP ‘outraged’ over ‘tiny prisoner exchange’

http://twitter.com/#!/ThePantau/status/473478868268232706

As Twitchy reported, a recent Washington Post headline suggested that concern over the legality of the exchange of five Taliban leaders for Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl is a “Republican” thing (even while acknowledging in the article that the government’s actions were illegal).

This morning, Mother Jones’ Kevin Drum took that stupidity and ran with it:

http://twitter.com/#!/kdrum/status/473477959009832961

According to him:

Republicans these days are so hellbent on finding reasons to be outraged over everything President Obama does, there’s no longer any way to tell whether their outrage over any specific incident is real or manufactured. And in this case, it’s probably not worth trying to find out.

In other words, if “Republicans” are worried about it, it’s nothing worth worrying about. Even if it was against the law.

http://twitter.com/#!/Micky_Finn/status/473482878664183811

Drum says it’s “just random partisan fulminating”:

http://twitter.com/#!/SteveKrak/status/473494315248132096

And the swap itself? Just “a tiny prisoner exchange.”

http://twitter.com/#!/AnthonyAbides/status/473481770386849792

It just so happens that in that “tiny” exchange, five dangerous men were released:

http://twitter.com/#!/vamplita/status/473484885777055744

http://twitter.com/#!/drawandstrike/status/473481912074268672

http://twitter.com/#!/dthurston/status/473480922504114177

CNN’s Jake Tapper reports that soldiers in Bergdahl’s platoon claim that he was not a prisoner of war, but rather a deserter who walked off while on guard duty. At least six soldiers were killed in efforts to find him.

http://twitter.com/#!/DLoesch/status/473479606440591360

Does Drum dismiss those men as petty “Republicans,” too?

http://twitter.com/#!/bfinstock/status/473482239360401408

http://twitter.com/#!/OrwellForks/status/473482833273839616

Many questions about Bergdahl remain, but for now, at this much is certain:
