Two Male Peas in a Republican Pod and other Recent Tweets 8/21/2012 8:38 AM ET

RT Paul Ryan and Todd Akin, co-sponsors of their own anti-choice bill, two male peas in a Republican pod: 
The one admirable thing Romney did in MA was create Obamacare.
Dukakis created the Massachusetts miracle. Employable folk fled Massachusetts in the face of Romney's subsequent ineptitude.
Obama is vastly better for business than Romney. Just as Clinton was better than both Bushes.
Decorous or not, GOP is hell bent on zapping abortion rights.
Fear will not win for Democrats. But honest risk assessment and a commitment to fairness can.

It's almost. Don't worry about beating the GOP. They'll do it on their own.
Ryan just surpassed Sarah Palin as a GOP liability. He can shake Ayn Rand but not his rape-definition partner Akin.
Wow. An issue a day that isn't the economy or jobs. Do I hear the GOP falling into a deep, deep hole?
Ryan Romney ease diminishing a trifle as Ryan's Akin compatibility is assessed. 
GOP doesn't need a 60 page manual defining what it means to be a Republican. Today it means Romney Neo-Con or Tea Party or Both.

Mitt's efforts to smash Obama on welfare are laughable, boring and reflect the intellectual abyss he and his woeful campaign occupy.
Unlike Sister Souljah, Akin is running for a key Senate seat. Will Romney ice him? Go Claire! 
Mitt Romney's purpose: Defend Big Oil and its global hold on everything at any cost, just like W and Cheney.…
The President did cut Medicare to pay for Obamacare and things are vastly better for seniors. What's the beef, Mitt?
One thing's for sure. President Obama is whipping Mitt on the political front. Maintaining his margin as Mitt is supposed to be rising.
Mitt can't even release the two years he promised - at least so far.
 Please mention that our prospective GOP nominee for President has been a cop impersonator.

Boston Globe exposed Romney as a cop impersonator. Rest of media mum. 
Forget everything else. It has always been GOP versus Obama.
As GOP Blocks Obama - "a typical middle-class family of four will see its taxes go up by $2,200 on January 1." 
The myopic media is now acting as though Mitt Romneyis no longer a pathological liar 
We are seeing the tide of journalistic myopia meet the tide of aggressive truth-telling regarding Mitt 
Romney is having a proctological problem over Akin and Ryan and himself. At what point will they stop killing women?
GOP antics cannot blind us to the fact that GOP has stalled millions of infrastructure jobs by doing nothing in Congress.
While GOP is marketing Mitt we at Twitter will be explaining why he is toxic to all Americans

"Sto Perigiali" One of the Surpassingly Best Tunes Theodorakis Has Written

A Setting for a Poem "Denial" Beloved by the Greek People by the Nobel Prize Winning Poet Giorgos Seferis
The remarkable video at the link above is of a performance of "Sto perigiali" Mario Frangoulis and Mikis Theodorakis in 2001.

Frangoulis and Theodorakis are joined by musicians, including two bouzouki players, and a very large audience that is completely familiar with the words. The audience joins in at Frangoulis' prompt.

This is my very favorite Theodorakis melody. Those who know Theodorakis only for his "Zorba" music are in for a treat. When I was in Athens in 1966, for a short period of study with Constantinos Doxiadis, I knew nothing of Theodorakis. But about five years later, my friend Irene Vassos sang "Sto perigiali" to us. I have never gotten the tune out of my mind.

Later, when Irene joined our group to form a travelling company performing "New Rain", I learned to pick out a …

Obama Ads Should Be Grass Roots Cinema Verite

'via Blog this'

To counter the invidious efforts of Karl Rove and the Brothers Koch, simple videos of everyday people expressing gratitude for specific results from specific things that the President has achieved will create a signature response that will turn the tables on the Super PACs.

There could be an intro that flags lies distortions and anonymous attacks as unreal and even criminal and a cut to what is real, recognizable and not anonymous I am (name). I have lived here in (name) for (time). Thanks to (President Obama's (name) Act ... and so forth for ten seconds. Close with a continuation of the story narrated over evocative images and simple acoustic music.

This would be a fantastic way to counter the attacks on the President. For every specific attack, a video that shows the truth. And grass roots people who intend to vote for the President.
