Republicans Blast Susan Rice for Misleading Public:“That’s Our Job”
Posted by Andy Borowitz
WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report)—A trio of Republican senators today blasted U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice for misleading the American public, which, in the words of Sen. Lindsay Graham (R-SC..),“has traditionally been our job.”“Ambassador Rice has been engaged in nonstop lies and double-talk,” said Sen. Graham, one of three Republican senators who had a closed-door meeting with Rice.“If she really wants to do those things so badly, she should run for the U.S. Senate like the rest of us.”
Sen. Kelly Ayotte (R-N.H.) agreed with Sen. Graham’s assessment, saying of the meeting,“I heard Susan Rice spew nothing but half-truths, distortions, and complete fabrications. It felt like I was watching Fox News, except that she’s black.”
The third senator, John McCain (R-Ariz.), said that he found Ambassador Rice’s story profoundly disappointing:“Considering that the C.I.A. was involved, I thought there’d be more sex

75% of American Jews are Democrats; most moderate Jews realize that the Palestinians must have their own state if there is ever to be peace.
You are an idiot who knows nothing.
The only group who hates blacks, Jews, hispanics, gays, women, veterans, are Republicans. The angry old white guy party, whining and stamping their feet because they're not getting their way anymore. Get over yourselves, the world has changed.

The GOP's Problem With Young Voters Is Only Getting Worse
Many 18-29 year old voters became politically aware during the Bush years, and it might be difficult for the GOP to erase their memories of the formative political battles that shaped their political identity and perceptions of the two parties. At the very least, the GOP cannot re-litigate the cultural issues that defined the last four presidential elections and again divide the electorate along utterly predictable lines for a fifth consecutive election. Perhaps the GOP can cast losing issues aside and find new issues that divide young voters along more favorable lines, as even Tea Party-favorite Rand Paul seems to be suggesting about gay marriage and marijuana. Historically, elections following two-plus terms of consecutive control of the presidency by the same party have offered the out-party their best opportunities to make adjustments and redraw the battle-lines on more favorable terms, as Bill Clinton did in 1992 and George W. Bush in 2000. That makes 2016 a critical opportunity for Republicans, and passing on it isn't optional. The GOP cannot afford many more years worth of 18 year old voters entering the electorate and voting for Democrats by a 24 point margin.

The proposal to raise taxes on those earning more than $250,000 annually — one of President Obama's central campaign pitches — continues to be popular among a large majority of Americans, according to the latest ABC News/Washington Post poll out Wednesday.
Sixty percent of those surveyed support the proposal, compared with just 37 percent who are opposed. The debate over raising taxes on the high-income earners was one of the defining issues of the 2012 campaign, although polls have consistently shown broad support for the proposal backed by Obama and the Democrats.
Meanwhile, an even larger portion of Americans — 67 percent — are opposed to raising the age for Medicare coverage from 65 to 67. Some Republicans such as Sen. Bob Corker (R-TN) have suggested raising the Medicare eligibility age as part of their proposal to avoid the so-called "fiscal cliff."

A 14-year-old girl charged with killing her newborn baby will be tried as an adult in court.
Cassidy Goodson was indicted by a grand jury on Thursday, according to the Lakeland Ledger.
Authorities say that on September 19, Goodson gave birth to her son in a Lakeland, Fla. bathroom, then strangled the baby. When asked why she killed her child, Goodson allegedly told authorities she "didn't know what to do with it." She had reportedly tried to hide her pregnancy using baggy clothes.
(14 is not an adult, she is a child)

Michael Dunn, a 45-year-old Florida resident is invoking the controversial law after a recent confrontation turned fatal, The Orlando Sentinel reports.
According to authorities, 17-year-old Jordan Russell Davis, a black teenager, and several other friends were confronted by Dunn, a white man, who pulled alongside the teens' SUV in the parking lot of a Jacksonville, Fla., gas station. Dunn asked them to turn their music down, and after an exchange of words, he fired between 8 and 9 shots at the vehicle, several of which hit Davis, causing his death.
(This looks like Dunn was the instigator)

ADT, which recently spun off from Tyco International into a separate, public company, said it will make a jobs announcement this afternoon at its corporate headquarters in Boca Raton.
The security company was offered a $1.6 million incentive package to remain in Boca Raton and create at least 120 jobs. Palm Beach County approved a $184,00 job growth incentive grant as part of the package.
In 2010, ADT was offered $1.3 million in incentives to invest in a new North American corporate headquarters at 1501 Yamato Road in Boca Raton.

After the Crack-Up
Conservatives need to support their arguments with creative storytelling.
It’s been weeks since our “surprise” loss on November 6. The conservative crack-up began in real time, as we watched Karl Rove,à la Captain Queeg, insist that his employer, Fox News, was calling Ohio, and the election, for President Obama prematurely.
Then came the fingerpointing, and the conjecture. Our pundits covered every scenario. We were too conservative. We weren’t conservative enough. The social issues killed us. We didn’t hit the social issues hard enough. We had a candidate problem. A woman problem. A Hispanic problem. It will continue for months, this self-abuse masquerading as self-examination. And liberals will eat it up, watching us wallow in self-doubt.
But if there is one thing conservatives can agree on post-election, it’s this: The dominance of the Left in the storytelling arena is making a difference at the polls. It’s impossible to measure, but anyone who doesn’t think it skews outcomes is living in an alternate universe.
The fact is, it’s easier to sell a political narrative to America when it comports with the cultural narrative we see and hear every day.
For a start, shut down FOX since it's political narrative has very little to do with present day culture.
