I may have to do some reading in the next few weeks ...

... to see just how, in legal terms, a "terrorist group" is defined. The Tea Baggers are trying really hard to make the cut.

They were also lining up to call each other "treasonous," too. And making Rick Perry eat every bite of his words about social security. Hey, here's an idea: what if the Innocence Project looked into every one of those 233 executions that Perry says were all guilty (the number he threw around was 234, but one of them has already been strongly questioned by the Project.) I bet that would keep 'em busy -- both Perry and the Project folks -- for a while.

Jon Stewart beat me to the punch on mocking the Tea Bag debate, but I'm allowed to miss a deadline once in a while, especially if I'm making quiche -- bacon and chicken quiche, with blue oyster and lion's mane mushrooms.

On more positive notes, I've got a grocery-desert story to pass along, but first, it's time for coffee.
