Big Dan's Big News May 15, 2008

One of the greatest moments in television history!

Hardball's Chris Matthews takes a loudmouth conservative talk show host out to the woodshed for a whoopin'! This is what happens when rightwing loudmouths are out of their infomercial element like the Rush Limbaugh show, and are actually asked questions about what they're saying.

"I can shout louder than you can! OOPS! I'm not on FOX "news"! They are actually asking me questions about what I'm saying!"


President Bush has said repeatedly that he would not insert himself into the presidential race, but that stance changed dramatically today during his trip to Israel. After likening Iran's President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to Osama bin Laden, Bush compared Barack Obama to Nazi appeasers.

Thor Hearne and MO GOP Attempt to Rewrite Constitution to Allow Voter Disenfranchisement. For the record, MO already has a Voter ID requirement, so this new restriction is meant to do nothing more than keep Democratic-leaning voters from being able to vote. Period.

Bush Operative Pushes Voter-ID Law: A senior legal adviser to the Bush-Cheney 2004 reelection campaign is working behind the scenes to help enact a Missouri state constitutional amendment that critics say would suppress the vote in the key battleground state this November by requiring voters to show proof of citizenship. Mark “Thor” Hearne, Bush-Cheney’s national counsel in 2004 and now a partner in the St. Louis, Missouri, firm of Lathrop & Gage, has been collaborating with Missouri’s Republican state Rep. Stanley Cox, the sponsor of the constitutional amendment, Cox’s office confirmed this week. For years, Hearne has been a leading Republican figure demanding stricter voter-identification laws and popularizing claims about widespread voter fraud, although many election experts dismiss such alarms as hyperbole. During the 2004 campaign, Hearne reportedly worked with White House political adviser Karl Rove on “voter fraud” issues and spearheaded GOP efforts to challenge voter-registration drives by pro-Democratic groups.

SAN FRANCISCO — In a monumental victory for the gay rights movement, the California Supreme Court overturned a voter-approved ban on gay marriage Thursday in a ruling that would allow same-sex couples in the nation’s biggest state to tie the knot.

Special commentary by Big Dan on gay marriage: "I don't think it's any of my business, what 2 consenting adults are doing! Dick Cheney has a lesbian daughter who's married and has a kid! Since I'm FOR gay marriage, I hope they find it in their hearts to invite me to their weddings, so I can get free food and do the chicken dance & YMCA...'n stuff like that..."
