Mary Kate and Ashley Under Hitler

This is an amazing story. It came via ABC News.

Are these girls making a lot of money yet? Where are they going in life? Find out at their website. I see the girls are writing some insightful lyrics:

Aryan man awake, How much more will you take, Turn that fear to hate, Aryan man awake.

What will it take for you to remember your own folk? What will it take for you to break that heavy yoke? Why do you still cast your eyes downward to the ground? Worry lest what you say have prejudicial sound. Who will stand beside us when the war begins? Who will run and hide their heads and wait to see who wins? Who will face the end and watch a Valkyrie ride forth To join the gods and fallen stormtroopers of the North?

Racism is one thing, but the days of Beowulf are over.

GOP Bulks Up Warchest

Republicans continue to raise more money than Democrats, even as the popularity of the party is in decline. The RNC has bested the DNC by a margin of 2-1 in the third quarter.

Interestingly, despite losing the fundraising wars against the National Committee and the Congressional Campaign Committee, the Democratic Senatorial Committee has raised significantly more money than its Republican counterpart. Why is this?

Perhaps it's because the Democratic seats in the Senate also happen to be from some of the wealthiest states in the country. Or maybe it's because the country views Senate Republicans in a more negative light than House Republicans. Senators are significantly larger public figures than representatives, and are therefore often subjects for donation drives. Key contributors are less likely to pour money into gerrymandered House districts, even when there's an open seat than into a high profile senate race, such as the showdown coming up for the Tennessee seat, which is being vacated by Bill Frist.

Senator Strikes Gold

From the Associated Press:

Millionaire Sen. Judd Gregg announced Thursday that he won $853,492 in the Powerball lottery.

The 58-year-old Republican was one of 47 Powerball players who correctly picked five of the winning numbers but not the bonus digit that would have qualified them for the $340 million jackpot - the second-richest prize in U.S. lottery history.

The only jackpot-winning ticket was sold in Jacksonville, Ore. The holder of the ticket did not immediately step forward.
As they say on New Jersey Lottery commercials around here, 'Hey, you never know...'

The Washinton Times "Pro-Family" Agenda

Everybody knows the Washington Times. It's the right wing counterpart to the traditionally liberal Washington Post, it's the paper quoted by conservative think tanks and the Wall Street Journal editorial page; the views of its columnists and editorial staffers are similar to the talking points given out to Republican congressmen, and most importantly, it's owned by an ambitious cult leader, Syung Myung Moon, who organizes mass arranged marriages.

Now, arranged marriage is not an antiquated practice. Although I personally don't believe in it, I'd be ignorant to ignore the fact that arranged marriage is a reality in many cultures and religions. However, the way that the Moonies use it is simply wrong. Moon, who has been to prison for tax evasion, uses these people to finance his political movement, and most importantly, himself. He's been a millionaire since the 1970's.

According to Reverand Moon, Korea, which is shaped as the picture displays, is "the phallus that is meant to impregnate America".

And Italy is the boot that's supposed to kick our asses.
