No, David in Cal, there is no such requirement. You can, of course, fact-check the fact-checkers. And, of course, the fact-checkers you link to are themselves egregiously biased, but that somehow doesn't seem to bother you at all.

It's good to see that the clown was a real dude just blustering instead of some nutjob lunatic.

I respect the point of view that the only way to change the Republican Party is from within, and i admire their tenacity... but really, wake up and smell the kopi luwak. Of course, the same could be said about the Black Republicans.
I can't imagine what results Barry would expect to be fair for such vague searches as 'market' or 'store'. Maybe Google simply isn't the right tool for that sort of search. At this point, all i'm seeing in this trend of "Death of Google predicted - film at 11" articles is entries pointing at each other. Golly gee, a site on the Web doesn't do what you want it to do. Should we really care? If Google cares, they'll address the problem. If they don't, they'll go the way of HotBot. Do we really need nerd celebrities telling us that Google isn't as awesome as it used to be?

It takes a hell of a lot to get me to vote YES on a proposition. 19 is probably the only one i know i'll give a YES. If there were a proposition to call a constitutional assembly, that would also be an emphatic YES. Everything else is probably a NO.

Martyrdom probably ain't what it used to be in our short attention span era. But you asked.
You only assassinate important people. Also, there's always the risk of martyrdom.
Worst Swiftie ever.

Those assholes were calling themselves teabaggers first.
I'm willing to sacrifice the 14th amendment in order to eliminate all trace of personhood for corporations.

I don't have any on hand, no.
I'd be more sympathetic if organized labor pulled its head out of its ass and started caring about their members instead of themselves.
16's title was sickeningly deceptive, and 17 was standard lies. But the tide seems to have turned; both 16 and 17 are NO with 74.7% in.

Mad dogs, Englishmen, and apparently Teabaggers go out in the midday sun, especially in Las Vegas. Don't have to worry about your brain getting fried when it isn't working properly anyway. Microman USA apparently forgot that the bailouts were pushed by Bush and Paulson. Maybe it'll turn out to be the best thing they did while in office. Maybe you should tell the Reagan worshippers that he was president of a union before he became governor of CA. That should mess them up a bit. Maybe the anti-executive orders person is actually pro-monarchy.

Yet another "i know you are, but what am i" classic from Rob (not to mention trying to establish equivalence between Newsweek's occasional mistakes and Newsmax's standard disregard for facts), including a devastating demonstration of parodic tin ear, on level with Sen. Knotts's insistence that his calling Pres. Obama and Nikki Haley "ragheads" was merely intended "in jest".

I'm disappointed; Stalker Sailor Steve hasn't weighed in yet explaining how this was far from your greatest triumph, or perhaps not even a triumph at all.

"These people are dangerous, and I think it's important to understand them" How does understanding them really help? It shouldn't be called Creationism. It is more accurately Denialism. It is fear magnified to a ridiculous scale. How can you fix a problem for people who insist that it isn't one?

I've updated my profile as well (i thought the link would just go straight to my journal). Any relation to Eric?
