The Urban Beat - February 4, 2010


1.  Senator Collins EPIC FAIL. 

2.  You should be paying attention to the Illinois Senate race.

3.  This Toyota Prius recall is a total mess, price tag is up to $2 Billion.  Smdh.

4. Rapper Eve may be in trouble with the Feds over her old boo.

5. Congress is Broken: This is a great article I think we should all take the time to read the entire thing, but after Citizens United how is realistic is it that we could "fix" Congress?

Via The Nation Magazine, Harvard Professor Lawrence Lessig talks about our broken Congress and how to get it back to working for us!
We should remember what it felt like one year ago, as the ability to recall it emotionally will pass and it is an emotional memory as much as anything else. It was a moment rare in a democracy's history. The feeling was palpable--to supporters and opponents alike--that something important had happened. America had elected, the young candidate promised, a transformational president. And wrapped in a campaign that had produced the biggest influx of new voters and small-dollar contributions in a generation, the claim seemed credible, almost intoxicating, and just in time. Read the rest here.



6.  I want Sarah Palin and Rush Limbaugh to effing go away forever.  Just shut the eff up already! 

Dear Mrs. Palin,

Saying that something is "retarded," while in poor taste isn't a reason to fire the Chief of Staff to the President of the United States (he can't just up and quit like you chica).  And of course because you love pandering and attention you go and put a stupid post on your stupid facebook page saying stupid things.  I really would like you to stop doing this you idiotic, vacuous, dumb ex-governor!  I wish you would recognize that you are a complete and total megalomaniac and your "thoughts" on just about everything are completely irrelevant to people with firing neurons in their brains.

Please take my thoughts into consideration.

Sincerely Yours,

America

P.S.  You might want to focus your attention on your colleagues at Fox News who think your hot and want you to sit on their laps.  Yeah I guess they should be fired too for being sexist right? Dummy.

Update: Well, it looks like Caribou Barbie doesn't like when Rush says retarded either! Surprise!

7.  Hey Vanity Fair, there are no people of color in young Hollywood!? Fail.


8.  Obama may have 2 more seats to fill on the Supreme Court.

9.  Planned Parenthood responds to Tim Tebow's pro-life superbowl ad!



10.  A soldier writes a passionate plea to end DADT.

11.  Are the Senate Republicans really going to filibuster a JOBS bill?!  Please, please, please do it!  I want you idiots standing up reading the rules of cards while we are at 10% unemployment and people see YOU on teevee blocking any assistance!

12.  I don't drive a Toyota, but if you do you might want to make sure your car is not on this list!
