Last weekend, as the House of Representatives gathered to debate health care reform while Tea Partiers protested outside the Capitol, word emerged that Rep. Emanuel Cleaver (D-Mo.) had been spit on by one of the demonstrators.


Cleaver released a statement confirming the incident, but some questioned his claims. Fox News personality Sean Hannity asked if there was any evidence proving that it had actually happened, and Tea Party groups offered a cash reward for proof.


Now video has emerged. Take a look and judge for yourself:

I want to tape Hannity's eyeballs open and force him to watch it on loop. For the duration of one of his show's. I'd like the show to have a grand finale that includes the Tea Bagger's that offered a cash reward for *proof* handing over a check to the videographer. j

What the fuck is wrong with people in this country that they will believe people like Hannity, O'Reilly, Limbaugh and Palin?

Exclamation Chinese Ship Leaking Oil Close to the Great Barrier Reef


I just heard on the news that a Chinese registered ship, Shen Neng 1, is leaking oil close to The Great Barrier Reef. It is loaded with 65,000 tons of coal headed to China. The captain was taking a short-cut and went out of the shipping lane and ran aground. And thus...one of the world's greatest santucaries is in danger of being destroyed by leaking oil.

News like this just pisses me off.

RICHMOND, Va. ó Gov. Bob McDonnell has conceded a "major omission" for not noting slavery in declaring April Confederate History Month in Virginia.

As part of his mea culpa, McDonnell inserted into the proclamation a paragraph condemning slavery as "evil and inhumane" and blaming it as the cause of the Civil War.

In a 400-word statement issued by his office, McDonnell said the failure to include a slavery reference was a mistake and apologized to any Virginian who might have been offended or disappointed.

On Tuesday, McDonnell said in a telephone news conference that he wasn't focused on slavery in drafting the decree but on Civil War history.

More Civil War battles were fought in Virginia than any other state, and Richmond was the capital of the Confederacy.

A major earthquake has shaken Indonesia's northwest island of Sumatra, prompting a brief tsunami warning and sending residents rushing for higher ground.

The U.S. Geological Survey says a 7.7 magnitude earthquake occurred at sea about 215 kilometers northwest of the Indonesian island of Sumatra.

The quake was felt throughout northern Sumatra and in Malaysia. Local news reports say that patients from some area hospitals were evacuated and that some residents fled to high ground in case of a tsunami. Electricity in some areas was cut off but so far no major damage has been reported.

Wis. DA Threatens Arrest for Local Sex-Ed Teachers

A Wisconsin district attorney is urging schools to drop their sex-education programs, warning that the teachers involved could be arrested if they follow a new state law requiring them to instruct students on how to use condoms and other contraceptives.

The state law, called the Healthy Youth Act, took effect in March. Starting this fall, it requires schools with sex-education courses to teach students medically accurate, age-appropriate information, including how to use birth control and prevent sexually transmitted diseases. It also requires the classes to include information about how to recognize signs of abuse and how alcohol can affect decision making.

Parents will be permitted to remove their children from sex-education classes, as they could under previous state law. Schools also will be allowed the choice of whether to offer sex education, but must notify parents if they decide not to.

In his letter, Southworth told school district leaders the new law promotes sexual assault of children, and warns that teachers who follow the law could be charged with misdemeanor or felony delinquency of a minor, with maximum punishments ranging from nine months in jail to six years in prison.

"For example, if a teacher instructs any student aged 16 or younger how to utilize contraceptives under circumstances where the teacher knows the child is engaging in sexual activity with another child -- or even where the 'natural and probable consequences' of the teacher's instruction is to cause that child to engage in sexual intercourse with a child -- that teacher can be charged under this statue," Southworth wrote.

Default DOJ

Gibbs Questions Justice Department Brief

Robert Gibbs criticized a brief filed by the Department of Justice last week defending the constitutionality of "don't ask, don't tell.


White House press secretary Robert Gibbs on Tuesday put some distance between the White House and the Department of Justice in terms of the department's approach to defending "don't ask, don't tell" in a brief filed last week. Gibbs suggested it was "odd" that DOJ used Gen. Colin Powell's 1993 testimony to defend the law because Powell has since changed his views on the matter.

"Was it odd that they included previous statements from Gen. Colin Powell on a belief set that he no longer had?" Gibbs posed, in response to a question from The Advocate. "I donít think the president would disagree with that."
