Click Bishop Takes a Page from Palin – Reads Dr. Seuss

Republican Senator Click Bishop, whose district covers land from Fairbanks to Valdez took a page from Sarah Palin and read a story by Dr. Seuss to the Alaska State Senate. Well, it wasn’t quite a Dr. Seuss original – more of a revision of Seuss’ Green Eggs and Ham seen through the filter of government overreach. Unlike Half-Term Palin’s teleprompter read at CPAC last year (when she held the book as a prop), Click seems to have actually written the words down in a copy of Green Eggs and Ham. I’m hoping that he bought a new copy and didn’t ruin one of from his grandkids….

Happy Birthday, Shirley Chisholm!

Congresswoman Shirley Chisholm would be 89 today. Chisholm was the very first African-American woman in the United States Congress. Born November 30th, 1924 in Brooklyn, New York to Caribbean parents, one from British Guiana and another from Cuba, Shirley became not only the first Black Congresswoman but also the first Black Presidential candidate for the Democratic or Republican Party. Congresswoman Chisholm was re-elected six more times, until her retirement in 1983. Unfortunately this awesome states-woman, person, American passed away in 2005. But luckily we have a good amount of video of her. Here’s one of my favorites from the Visionary…

Haters Gonna Hate – [Video]

Hat tip to Upworthy for posting this amazing video by youtubers Clever Pie and Isabel Fay singing about haters, trolls and death threats on the internet. Some might say you are a… Sexually aggressive, racist, homophobe, misogynistic, Cowardly, illitterate, waste of human skin, Sexually aggressive, racist, homophobe, misogynistic, Cowardly, iliterat, waste of human skin, But I say: thank you beautiful stranger. A lot of these hit very close to home – as you can imagine we here at The Mudflats get quite a few of them… you only need to look at Shannyn Moore’s facebook page on any given day…

Disney Queen Owns it.

It’s Wednesday, AKA Hump Day. Your work week is half way over. It’s probably when you’re already starting to peter out a bit in productivity levels, day-dreaming about that trip down to Homer, the Governor’s Picnic…or wherever. But for now, you have two days of work left. Here’s some inspiration from someone who takes pride in her job (however evil). The Queen from Snow White at Disneyland is asked a simple question by a little girl, “Why are you still jealous of Snow White?” hat tip to reddit.

Tammy Duckworth Shames Defense Contractor

Wednesday, June 26th, Representative Tammy Duckworth (D-Il.) showed why we were all so excited about her getting elected in 2012. Watch her obliterate, eviscerate, shame and then kick the crap out of this Defense Contractor for claiming veteran disability on a high school ankle injury. I promise you it will be one of the more satisfying 8 minutes of your life. It should be noted for those that do not know – Representative Duckworth is a hero for more than this – she lost both of her legs fighting in the Iraq War. From her website: As a Black Hawk…

Moment of Clarity from Lee Camp

Good friend, colleague and the funniest person I know – Lee Camp has a new show. And you should be watching it. It’s called Moment of Clarity – and it’s available on youtube – he’s 3 episodes in and he’s already had Greg Palast, Margaret Flowers of the Physicians for a National Healthcare Program and Roseanne Barr of well… Roseanne. [His shows are often NSFW due to swearing] It’s like the Daily Show – except funnier, more swear words and doesn’t mock activists like Stewarts show does. This is a show for people that give a sh*t. The Moment of…
