More of that vaunted "new tone": "Rep. Louise Slaughter (D-N.Y.) said today that the new Republicans elected to the House of Representatives last November came to Congress 'to kill women.'"

And speaking of new tone, those violent tea baggers are at it again.

Wind power -- it's even worse than you thought.

What liberal deficit reduction looks like.

"The only reason that they are in a pickle is because they utterly failed to pass a fricking budget last year even though they controlled the White House, the Senate, and the House of Representatives. There's no way around it, fellers: You stunk up the joint worse than the enema man, Snoopy Poopy Poop Dogg, and Alan Simpson together."

Economic effects of a government shutdown would be "negligible."
