“At this point, the only people who seem to be noticing Romney’s Tumblr are supporters of his opponent. A new video attacking Obama for backing the now-bankrupt solar firm Solyndra received just two notes, one of which read simply, “I just feel bad because Mitt Romney doesn’t get any notes on his posts.”—
“Oh, Jon, did I ever tell you that I, Roger Ailes, plan to undermine the role of an independent press by constantly whining that any reportage that deviates from a staunch conservative narrative is biased, while at the same time filling the editorial vacuum that that creates by building a conservative juggernaut in the guise of a news organization, and then, he said … Jon, I’m gonna call the organization ‘Fox News’ and its tagline will be, you’re gonna love this, ‘A fanatically micromanaged media fiefdom where my own far right agenda and sense of victimhood drive every aspect of the operation … and balanced.’”—Jon Stewart, finally firing back at Fox News boss Roger Ailes about how he admitted in a bar that he was “a socialist.” (via hypervocal)
“I just heard this the other day: The Mormons, Mitt Romney’s crew, they believed black people were the devil ‘til 1978! I’m not making this up! … Seventy-eight! That means Jackson Five? Devil. Temptations? The devil. What changed ‘em, Bootsy Collins?”—
Rick Santorum has launched a new “campaign” to help get Obama out of office. This is the official website. It features a poll asking people what they think about Obama. I think it would be hilarious if we got it to read “very favorable”.
Come on tumblr! Bomb this poll!!
we’re only at 10% we should make it 99% :V
also vote for the shittier logo
I love the smell of rudeness in the morning.
And what is the shittier logo? They’re both pretty terrible.
I found the one with the Patriot Dood worse, personally.
I do love how there are no conservative web designers. But seriously go fuck with that poll.
Also, Mitt Romney calling the President "detached and out of touch" is like a multimillionaire who owns two mansions, six cars and who thinks "corporations are people, my friend" calling someone "detached and out of touch."
After saying President Barack Obama does not care about the private sector, Mitt Romney on Friday dismissed unemployment in the public sector, saying the country does not need more firemen, policemen or teachers.
“He wants another stimulus, he wants to hire more government workers,” Romneysaid at a press conference. “He says we need more firemen, more policemen, more teachers. Did he not get the message of Wisconsin? The American people did. It’s time for us to cut back on government and help the American people.”
Not exactly surprising, but validating. Almost every single partner I ever worked with had a stay at home wife. The few that had working wives were always less sexist.
“We found that employed husbands in traditional marriages, compared to those in modern marriages, tend to (a) view the presence of women in the workplace unfavorably, (b) perceive that organizations with higher numbers of female employees are operating less smoothly, (c) find organizations with female leaders as relatively unattractive, and (d) deny, more frequently, qualified female employees opportunities for promotion.”
The moment you’ve all been waiting for is here! After months (days) of eager anticipation (quiet indifference), ThinkProgress is pleased to award our inaugural Golden Thinkrs to 10 tumblrs that have made us laugh, cry, think, sing, skip and—in one particular moment of weakness—drink heavily.
There are toomanyunique and worthyvoices on Tumblr to cram into one award ceremony, so instead we relied on a complicated, mathematical formula to whittle down our list to what you see here. We did not—repeat, DID NOT—throw darts at a board and choose the first 10 we hit.
Mother Jones for pioneering progressive news and commentary on tumblr.
Hey Libertarians and Paul-fans, just so you know "End The Fed" is an awful slogan...
purely from a messaging perspective. It doesn’t mean anything to anyone who hasn’t already been indoctrinated. Heck most people don’t even know what the Federal Reserve Bank is (and that includes more than a few libertarians that I’ve met).
Just saying, it’s not much of a rallying cry when the only people you can rally with it are people you’ve already rallied.
Again, you guys simply need better marketers. What the fuck does this even mean? Okay so it’s stencil art, so you get this kinda underground feel, that’s fine. But what’s the deal with the EVOL? It’s mirrored, so what, was a guy painting on the other side of a glass window? Does LOVE have something to do with states rights?
Even if you have an explanation it just. doesn’t. read. If you want to play in the big leagues you need to have more vague, versatile, and coherent messaging. If you’re expecting to reach Americans you have to make some sort of effort to sell to them in a way they understand. I’m not totally sure how I’d market it but then, frankly, I don’t really care for the product.
