You stand on the right and walk on the left when you come to DC.

just because

1. I needed an extra boost this morning…

2. And I just remembered when my sister and I went to a pre-Fergie BEP show at House of Blues way back when. After the show we met will.i.am at the bar. We talked about his denim jacket.

Glenn Beck and Sarah Palin are coming to town this weekend and thankfully they have created a visitor guide for all the tea partiers.

Some highlights via dcist. and the tea party travel czar.

DC’s population includes refugees from every country, as the families of embassy staffs of third world countries tend to stay in DC whenever a revolution in their homeland means that anyone in their family would be in danger if they went back. Most taxi drivers and many waiters/waitresses (especially in local coffee shops like the Bread and Chocolate chain) are immigrants, frequently from east Africa or Arab countries. As a rule, African immigrants do not like for you to assume they are African Americans and especially do not like for you to guess they are from a neighboring country (e.g. Eritrea, Ethiopia, Somalia) with whom they may have political or military tensions. It’s rare to meet anyone who gets really offended, but you can still be aware of the issue.

Many parts of DC are safe beyond the areas I will list here, but why chance it if you don’t know where you are?

If you are on the subway stay on the Red line between Union Station and Shady Grove, Maryland. If you are on the Blue or Orange line do not go past Eastern Market (Capitol Hill) toward the Potomac Avenue stop and beyond; stay in NW DC and points in Virginia. Do not use the Green line or the Yellow line. These rules are even more important at night. There is of course nothing wrong with many other areas; but you don’t know where you are, so you should not explore them.

He then posts the DC residences of Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi and poor Tom Daschle. Surprisingly the White House is not listed so there is an assumption that tea partiers know that our socialist leader resides at the House of White.

So basically, if there are non white people around you, you are unsafe and need to flee back to the blue zone of the map, which is the National Mall + Georgetown.

Ben Quayle - I was raised right, rich, white and with the privileges afforded to the son of a former Vice President of the United States. But I am still a fantastic d-bag who somehow ignores my dubious pedigree in the hopes of winning a seat to Congress through fear and stupidity.

Spell ‘potato’ Ben.

The Gift that Keeps on Giving

Via Sarah Palin’s main political platform, Facebook, which is used by college co-eds to exchange pictures of inebriation.

Maryland is a lost cause, I’ve lived here all my life and Marylanders always vote the same democrat losers in office. This state deserves everything it has got because the stupid residents are majority democrat and it will always be a loser state until that changes. Having said that it will never change and will always be a loser state. Erhlich maybe a republican but he’s a Maryland republican which is about the same thing as a democrat… - Robert Ward

Robert’s stream of consciousness is priceless and amazingly self defeating.

Good News

Because Proposition 8 is unconstitutional under both the Due Process and Equal Protection Clauses, the court orders entry of judgment permanently enjoining its enforcement; prohibiting the official defendants from applying or enforcing Proposition 8 and directing the official defendants that all persons under their control or supervision shall not apply or enforce Proposition 8. The clerk is DIRECTED to enter judgment without bond in favor of plaintiffs and plaintiff-intervenors and against defendants and defendant-intervenors pursuant to FRCP 58.

Congratulations to the men and women of California.

Congratulations to David Boies and Ted Olson, attorneys on opposing sides of the political spectrum who put integrity and intelligence before partisanship and divisiveness.
