Great - now the “communism” tag has a freakin picture of Obama!
For weeks now, there have been automated accounts pumping pictures of Obama through all the radical tags: #anarchism #communism #marx, whatever…
I’m SICK of this! Who is doing this!? 
GOD DAMN TUMBLR BUGS! WHO ARE YOU!?
UPDATE—————
Just to let you all know, I’ve contacted a few progressive magazines that might be interested in look into this. Haven’t heard back from them yet. Even contacted the tumblr support team - NOTHING. What the hell is this?

“Every time you have an occasion to take something from the federal government and send it back to the states, that’s the right direction. And if you can go even further, and send it back to the private sector, that’s even better.”

Mitt Romney

If they do, they will both agree on them all.

Amnesty International released a human rights bingo card in advance of last night’s presidential debate. There were no winners. (Sorry.)

-Mike Riggs

For those of you who don’t play debate drinking games, something to keep in mind for next time.

something tells me the VP debates will (fail to) touch on a lot of these same topics. keep that handle handy, and take a shot in honor of poor Jim Lehrer

Oh my god, this is amazing. Perfect. Just goes to show: not on their agenda.

Obama tours Honeywell (reporter silenced for questioning its labor practices) PHOTO OP! Kim Jong-il-esque

Reporter Mike Elk got a microphone ripped from his hands during a press conference while asking Honeywell CEO about shady labor practices at his company.

Obama went to tour the plant, had this picture-perfect photo op:

…by “great”, I mean, only great at taking staged pictures. Also great at oppressing millions of people

Wow, this is too much fun. Check out "Kim Jong-il looking at things" meme
