Here's a couple of interesting bits of crap

First, here in the US, Murkowski lost the primary, then went sucking up to the Alaska Libertarian Party to try to run on their ticket, was told no, and now says
“…After meeting with the Libertarian candidate last week and considering that option, I cannot in good conscience seek the Libertarian nomination,” she said. “As disappointed as I am in the outcome of the Primary and my belief that the Alaska Republican Party was hijacked by the Tea Party Express, an outside extremist group, I am not going to quit my party. I will not wrap myself in the flag of another political party for the sake of election at any cost.”
If you had any doubts what a untrustworthy bitch she is, this should set them at rest.

The second is this from Iran:
TEHRAN (M&G) President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said Iran and Africa wanted a new world order to replace the existing one which has been created by “slave masters”, as he opened an Iran-Africa conference on Tuesday.

“The mutual feeling is that the world needs a new management system,” the Mehr news agency quoted him as saying in his speech at the start of the two-day forum in Tehran attended by dignitaries from several African countries
Let's see, there's still open slavery going on in Sudan, the biggest slave-traders as I recall were Arabs, and you can find the most corrupt and bloody-handed regimes on earth at the moment in Africa... and they want a 'new order'.

I don't think we'd like their idea of a 'proper world order'.

Ok, one more, back in the US again:
Several residents of the small central Ohio town formed The Andover Tea Party in May 2010, and in that same month, they asked to use the square for a rally to commemorate Constitution Day, which celebrates the anniversary of the signing of the U.S. Constitution on September 17, 1787.

But on July 19, a trustee informed one of the tea party organizers, Margaret Slingluff, that they would not be allowed to hold the event, which would have included singers performing patriotic songs and public policy-related speakers, in the square. In an official letter dated Aug. 25, the trustee said the reason was “due to your group’s political affiliation.”
Isn't that just wonderful? Here's the explanation:
Elaborating to, Thompson explained that the trustees were citing a local resolution, Andover Township Resolution 06-104, that simply “prohibit[ed] any for-profit advertising or political signs on the Andover Square” and stated that “permission to use the square is made by the trustees on a case-by-case basis.

Based on that, Thompson said the problem was not so much that the group was conservative, but that the trustees believed celebrating the signing of the Constitution was a political event
Just ENTIRELY unsuitable for the town square, y'know.
