While the liberal blogosphere's Dem candidate blog war rages, there are some seriously dumb (and not so dumb) things being said out there this week, including: Gays should just SHUT UP; Families don't need calendars because they mark their days by Iraq War news; The war turns 5 this week; A Fox News War on Christmas soldier falls; and John McCain is the "change" candidate. No, I'm not kidding, and guess who said that about McCain. All this and much more. Enjoy! The War's 5th Birthday... Um, Bas...

This week, bloggers address some sizzling hot topics: The death resignation of Fidel Castro; President 19%'s excellent dance adventures in Africa; John McCain's "special interests"; The unbearable bleached-to-the-gills whiteness of Cindy McCain; The mysterious disappearance of our economic indicators; and BillO's worstest (Hey, there has to be a new category beyond the superlative to describe O'Reilly's behavior) week ever.

Intriguing question, isn't it? Many questions dominated the blogs this week, and artful bloggers answered them with snark and substance. For example: Who were the big Super Tuesday winners and losers?; Who thinks you're dumber than dirt?; Who's acting like a one-man Catholic League and getting all hot and bothered?; and, Which perpetual presidential candidate is ready to ride again? All this, plus DUers Seeker 30, underpants and El Pinko take the... um, cake. Enjoy! What Gets Around More Than A...

What a weird week on the blogs: FOX's Roger Ailes is afraid of "homosexual activists"; the food stamp diet isn't good for you (but not why you think); Rudy dials 911 and no one answers; what's causing discomfort at FOX News?; and who really benefits from the stimulus? All this, plus some silly Sherri Shepherd-ness to chew on, and DUers underpants, jannyk and tomeboy rock your world! Enjoy!

Seriously, how do you do it? This week on the blogs, hot topics ranged from gossip to great fact-based coverage of presidential politics, including these burning questions: Got an analogy even a Bushbot can understand?; Is straight-talkin' just a bunch of lies?; Did you know that "diversity" and "inequality" are synonymous?; And, did you miss Martin Luther King Opposite Day?

There is nothing to worry about, Gloomy Guses: No need to concern yourselves with Fleischer and Rove or even the Republican wingnut candidates; Don't even worry about Michigan's open primary shenanigans or the lies about how much better the economy is under Republicans; Forget Limbaugh's comedy routines; Ignore Ann Coulter's skank ratio; and don't let Super Tuesday's delegate count bother your beautiful mind. And whatever you do, don't pay any attention to what bloggers and DUers have to say. Ho...

What's true and what's not? That's the burning question on the blogs this week: Is Ozzy Osborne the new voice of CNN?; How does FOX News actually decide to report lies? (The process is finally revealed); How did "liberals" manage to bankrupt RedState? (You'll love this one!); Run, Sean Hannity! Run!; Chris Matthews really, really likes Hillary (on Planet OH RIGHT SURE); And there are "no more racists in America" (Read this before your head explodes).

Me either. In fact, 2008 might just make 2000 look like a walk in the park. Which is why we need to stand up and be counted. For real, this time. No more excuses from Republicans who claim to love America but really can't stand the democratic process. If you're looking for the truth, don't count on our no-way-is-it-free, corporate-owned press to give you the whole story. That would be so... um, founding fathers' 1770's, wouldn't it? And don't count on cable TV hairdos to offer unbiased reports o...

You knew they were lying about mushroom clouds. You knew that Republican candidates would say and do anything to divert attention away from their party's disastrous record of idiotic, dangerous policies. You knew that Republicans would never stop trying to steal elections. And you knew that the corporate-owned media would fan any and all flames (and even hire Karl Rove) for ratings and subscriptions. This week, liberal bloggers added much to the body of evidence against Republican incompetence a...

Are the constant Republican attacks getting you down? Is the endless evil/stupidity of BushCo causing more and more sleepless nights and grumpy, groggy days? This week, bloggers address the battle against rampant downerism and provide some seriously snarky coping mechanisms. Plus, it's time to thank some DUers for all that they do. Enjoy!

(For real); is it a beer or a mayoral candidate?; FOX News anchors or porn stars?; which GOPer/union member has a serious "union" problem?; which "I'm Not Gay!" (in black sequins and red stockings) Republican outed himself this week, and what's his worst "lifestyle" choice?; what's the best question to ask "values voters?" All this and more...

Halloween is fast approaching, and there are monsters everywhere. Leave it to liberal bloggers to hunt them down and drive a few virtual stakes through their shriveled Republican hearts. Plus, DUers' original posts inspire the best costume ideas, and we now know the Republicans' worst Nightmare on Democracy Street scenario! Who's the scariest of them all?

Some of this week's hottest liberal blog questions: what's blue, has the Enron logo carved into its back, and is depicted in biological reproduction mode? Who's the biggest asshole ever to serve as president? Who's investing upwards of $25 million in "Old Europe" while the U.S. dollar crashes? Can you name the Republicans' most notorious serial statistical exaggerator? Who has fetid compost where their hearts should be? And who will Mitt Romney call first if we're attacked again? All this, plus ...

How about a nice game of Clue? Remember that board game, where you had to deduce the perpetrator, the location, and the weapon? This week on the blogs, you could find all the evidence you need to make the tightie righties either whine like babies or run for cover and/or the (retirement) hills. Also, DUers Stephanie and Old Crusoe tell it like it is. The game's afoot! Enjoy! Wexler. In Petraeus' Face. With A Westmorland Comparison. Leave it to Crooks and Liars to get from Rep.

A true week of Republicaweirdness. Fortunately, DUers Hamlette, jgraz, and Husb2Sparkley tell it like it is. Enjoy! Happy Birthday, John McCain! Who could ever forget John McCain's birthd...

Facial recognition software knows the truth; Rudolph Nineelevenani's WTC love nest revealed; mad scientist or superhero: is there a guerilla librarian in a bookstore near you? Hey, Ernie Fletcher (R- KY), cry me a river, asshat!; The Departed: was Rove's rush to the door due to an Abramoff tip? All this...
