Gates of Vienna News Feed 1/9/2012

Gates of Vienna News Feed 1/9/2012According to the latest Gallup poll, a record 40% of Americans identified themselves as political independents last year. More identified themselves as Democrats (31%) than as Republicans (27%). There is no word yet whether this information has helped Republicans get a clue.

In other news, state prosecutors in Norway decided to allow Anders Behring Breivik to receive visitors in detention, beginning tomorrow. It’s possible that the Butcher of Utøya will be giving interviews to the media.

"There is no word yet whether this information has helped Republicans get a clue." hahaha quote of the day. It's painfully true. I don't think they want to "get a clue" either. Most of them just want to get paid -- they are venal and mercenary, which means the same thing, but sounds so good when used together. -- RoR

“These are surprising numbers. Removing a healthy child because it has the wrong sex — it’s almost impossible to believe,” said Strøm Erichsen.
Surely this quote takes the cake today. Truly,
There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio,
Than are dreamt of in your philosophy.

It seems that in the EU hating Jews is a-ok, that whole little holocaust thing was just a little misunderstanding...
