Late Night: The Endless Loop

By: Thursday April 10, 2014 8:00 pm

It seems that Hillary Clinton has been making a bit of a buzz lately with a trip out west wherein she announced, by not announcing, her candidacy for the Presidency in 2016. Really? Is that the best we can do; be saddled for eight years with Mrs. Welfare Reform, Mrs. Wall Street and media deregulation, and Ms. Iraq War, all rolled into one?

Late Night: Nervous as a Whore in Church

By: Thursday April 3, 2014 8:00 pm

Not for nothing, the plutocracy is getting more than a little edgy these days, and this edginess is leading to some behavior that would be laughable if it weren’t, well, nothing to chuckle about. That is, if you happen to be a member of the 99%.

Late Night: We’re Exceptional, All Right

By: Thursday March 27, 2014 8:00 pm

So it turns out that Michele Bachmann was right all along, but as usual, not in the way she intended. America is exceptional; just like say, Saudi Arabia is.

Late Night: Crappy Anniversary

By: Thursday March 20, 2014 8:00 pm

It’s hard to believe that eleven dreadful years have passed since the Iraq War was launched before a credulous public, partly because of old age and partly because not a one of its invariably ardent advocates has suffered any professional opprobrium; and worse, many are still treated as what we laughably call “National Security Experts.”

Late Night: Ass Forward

By: Thursday March 13, 2014 8:00 pm

It’s becoming increasingly clear each day that President Obama’s legacy, if you want to call it that, will be defined forever by his nutty and self- destructive declaration that the goal of his administration would be to “look forward, not back.”

In the immortal words of Sarah Palin, “How’s that workin’ out for ya?”

Late Night: Opera Bouffe

By: Thursday March 6, 2014 8:00 pm

It was comforting, back in the day, to think that once Bush was gone, this would all end.

Late Night: Feed ‘em to the Lions

By: Thursday February 27, 2014 8:00 pm

Lately, I’ve had it about up to my ears with this business of “Religious Liberty.” Why, in heaven’s name, should people who loudly and gaudily believe false and harmful things, and yet think that by so doing they should feel unburdened by the laws we heathens must follow, need any more liberty than they already have? If anything, these cretinous sociopaths need less than the rest of us, as they demonstrate each day.

Late Night: Louse Club House

By: Thursday February 20, 2014 8:00 pm

In about the least surprising development imaginable, Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker turns out to to be not only surrounded by crooks and grifters, but dumb and bigoted ones at that. Well, duh. Just as every other Republican “star” has similarly flamed out in some tawdry variation of the same theme, from New Jersey to Florida and Virginia to North Carolina, Walker is simply performing to type: when one holds the very fact of government in contempt philosophically, choosing a career in it anyway is simply something only a second-rate grifter would ever do.

Late Night: The Union Label

By: Thursday February 13, 2014 8:00 pm

Not only are unions good for workers, they are also good for employers, customers, and, duh, the economy, because secure, safe, and well paid workers spend money. But since it’s the so-called Job Creators who haven’t had a solid poop since the UAW threatened their plantation economy, let me calm their fears with a personal anecdote.

Late Night: Fossil Fools

By: Thursday February 6, 2014 8:00 pm

I suppose it isn’t surprising that the fossil fuel industry is populated with sociopathic sleazeballs, given that even those in its most senior ranks went in aware that their business model involved certain planetary destruction. What’s more galling is that they also are incompetent boobs so blinded by ideology and greed that they have become their own worst enemies.
