Let's see if I understand this.

Conservatives tell the rest of us to sit down, shut up, and accept the Darrell Wilson verdict.  After all, they say, the grand jury has spoken.

Meanwhile, they start their NINTH "investigation" of Benghazi.  After all, the House Intelligence Committee released a report that concluded there was no wrongdoing and no attempt to deceive by the administration.

What happened to that GOP outrage??

As I write this comment, it's after 11:00 PM, Friday, 21 November 2014.  President Obama spoke last night and announced the executive orders he was issuing to deal with certain aspects of immigration.

Republicans responded by foaming at the mouth, raging, shrieking about how the President is a "dictator," "tyrant," and is "destroying the Constitution."  They vowed to stop him.

And then they all left town.

That's right, on Friday, less than 24 hours after the President's speech, Congress adjourned and everyone headed home for a two-week Thanksgiving break.

But I thought they wanted to defend the Constitution from Obama the Tyrant???

What a bunch of hypocrites!!!

Two events that tell a really big story

The European Space Agency -- a consortium of scientists from European nations -- designed and built a ship that traveled through space for 310 million miles and landed on a comet.

Meanwhile, in Arizona, a local school board ripped out of a high school biology textbook the pages that describe contraception.

It's all in the name

Yes, it really is all in the name.  It matters what you call yourself.

After all, "Tea Party" sounds so much more respectable than "Wild-eyed, hate-filled, foaming-at-the-mouth, tire-biting-crazy lynch mob of ignoramusses."

See what I mean?

What is the price of ignorance?

For centuries, philosophers have debated the question:  "What is the price of ignorance?"

Now we know:  Sarah Palin now has her own subscription cable TV channel.  A subscription costs $9.95 per month or $99.95 a year.  And that, folks, is the price of ignorance.

Meanwhile, let's see how the Palin channel is doing.

It’s been three months since Sarah Palin launched her own television channel. The Daily Beast features an article this morning about the success/failure of the channel.
The Daily Beast reports that the channel has had a “barely measurable 36,000 visitors in September.” That information was based on a Quantcast inquiry that shows 36,000 visitors for September on sarahpalin channel. A more detailed review of the Comcast site reveals the following information about visits to
July 2014 - 48,329 visits
August 2014 - 113,856 visitsSeptember 2014 - 35,778 visits  -- that's a decline of -26% from the first July and a decline of -69% from August

There is no information available for October.  As of 6 November, 305 people -- an average of 50.8 people per dayhave visited the channel. If that trend continues throughout November, Sarah would have roughly 1,525 views for the month. Hmmmm.  Maybe there's not as much ignorance as I thought.
