Balls No Balls

Balls: Prime Minister David Cameron said those who sanctioned wrongdoing should have no further role in running a media company in the UK.
No Balls: FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski said Tuesday that he was not going to answer hypotheticals about News Corp. TV station license renewals in the wake of the growing phone hacking scandal involving its British tabloid, but indicated he did not see the FCC becoming involved in that issue.

Balls: Making the switch to fluorescent light bulbs.
No Balls: Texas passing a law allowing its residents (apparently regardless of whether or not Rick Perry secedes) to purchase incandescent light bulbs made in Texas. Even though, wait for it ... there are no incandescent light bulbs made in Texas.

Balls: "I've reached my limit. This may bring my presidency down, but I will not yield on this," President Barack Obama.
No Balls: GOP Reps. Michele Bachmann, Steve King and Louie Gohmert have proposed the Payment Reliability for our Obligation to Military and Investors to Secure Essential Stability Act. It's known as the PROMISES Act. It actually prioritizes who will get paid in case the debt ceiling is not raised. Even though Bachmann lacks the intelligence to believe that it will be an economic disaster should that happen.

Balls: My colleagues and myself, who work with lesbian and gay clients all the time and treat them the way we treat all clients - with empathy, compassion and genuine care.
No Balls: Bachmann & Associates, the Christian counseling agency owned by Marcus & Michele Bachmann, which has been captured on tape performing "reparative therapy," a/k/a pray away the gay.

Balls: Politicians who don't sign The Marriage Vow, join the Susan B. Anthony List or take any other vow or pledge.
No Balls: Michele Bachmann (again already?) and Rick Santorum, who apparently will sign anything put before them.
