EXCLUSIVE: New “Luce Lady” to be announced today!



Must credit Rumproast!

As many of you may know, the Clare Boothe Luce Policy Institute is a non-profit organization that specializes in motivating and training young women, mostly bereft of souls, to be the conservative leaders of tomorrow.  As a “motivational tool,” they’ve offered poorly-crafted “Luce Lady” posters  for “free” ($7.00 shipping/fondling) through their web site and the series has featured luscious luminaries like Ann Coulter and Michelle Malkin. Rumproast has learned through anonymous sources that CBLPI will be unveiling a new “Luce Lady” today during a press conference at their headquarters in Herndon, VA. We reveal who that “Lucey Lady” is below the fold…

MyDD—The Cesspool of Hate

Bravo to Bob Johnson for his #1 recommended diary at MyHRC:

While many at MyDD rail against Daily Kos as the “Great Orange Satan,” one has to wonder how MyDD is any better. The vile posts at MyDD (echoed at other so-called progressive blogs such as TalkLeft, Taylor Marsh and NoQuarter) spew the kind of venom and hatred one usually finds at the worst of the loony rightwing blogs.

I can understand some bitterness at having a favored candidate appear to be increasingly on the verge of losing the race—that is a normal part of every hotly-contested presidential primary—but the bitterness on display at MyDD is in a class by itself.

The demonizing of every elected Democrat who has endorsed Obama and the suggestions that Obama is a racist or is a Manchurian candidate for black power or racist puppetmasters marks those writers as seriously delusional and filled with hate.

No, you are not a Democrat if you make those kinds of off-the-wall accusations against good Democrats. You have become an unhinged fanatic.

A small handful of B to C-list lefty blogs have been pointing out the creeping racist douchebaggery from allegedly lib/Dem blogs “supporting” Hillary, but so far (correct me if I’m wrong) no A list bloggers have spotlighted this sick new trend.  It’s good news, at the very least, that this MyDD diary (and its message) is getting the attention it deserves. Now it would be great if someone on par with Digby, Kevin Drum or Glenn Greenwald (just to name a few) took a stand on this as well.

Very busy today.  I hope to write more on this later.
