BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOST

a comment on the article:

past year, 33 police officers were killed by firearms, where as the amount of “justifiable homicides” by police is over 300. In Seattle in 2012, 20% of the homicides in the entire city that year were committed by police officers. That’s fucked and that’s institutional.

GOP House Candidate Jim Hagedorn, Asshole of the Day for August 22, 2014
by TheDailyEdge (Follow @TheDailyEdge)
Jim Hagedorn was the surprise winner of this week’s GOP primary in Minnesota District 1, but Mother Jones reports today that he brings some “serious baggage” into his race against-4-term Democratic incumbent Tim Walz.
Citing posts from his now-scrubbed “Mr. Conservative” blog originally unearthed by Bluestem Prairie, Mother Jones reports:

Hagedorn made light of American Indians, President Obama’s Kenyan ancestry, and female Supreme Court justices, among others, in ways many voters won’t appreciate… (and) these were not mere juvenile ramblings, either: Hagedorn was a Treasury Department official at the time.

Hagedorn also reveled in anti-gay innuendo while telling his readers he thought “Caribou Barbie” Sarah Palin was “HOT!” 
At the same time:

Not all female politicians were viewed as favorably. In a 2002 post, Hagedorn referred to Washington Democratic Sens. Maria Cantwell and Patty Murray as “undeserving bimbos in tennis shoes.” Former Bush White House counsel Harriet Miers, he wrote in 2005, had been nominated “to fill the bra of Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O’Connor.”

Heading into a midterm election season in which the GOP is already struggling to convince women, minorities and the LGBT community that it isn’t really as misogynistic, racist and bigoted as it used to be, nominating this asshole isn’t likely to help.
This is Jim Hagedorn’s first time as Asshole of the Day.
Full story: Mother Jones.

spaceplasma:


While sunspots are relatively cool and quiescent regions on the Sun, the photosphere around them sometimes erupts with outflows of high energy particles in active regions. Most often these eruptions are in the form of loops and sheets called prominences which remain under the control of the intense magnetic fields associated with solar storms. There are other events which in a matter of minutes can release enormous amounts of energy and eject material out into space. Such violent events are called solar flares.
