Let’s Play With Some Numbers, Social Security Edition

By: Thursday December 13, 2012 5:00 pm

Of course, everyone that was on that show this morning (it included Harold Ford, Steven Rattner, Michael Steele, Disco Dave, Tweety, and Chuck Todd) as well as everyone on all the various talking head shows watched by the Beltway Village Idiots Courtiers are people who will never have to worry about living on Social Security as the only thing keeping them from poverty and homelessness, so they are all fine with most any and all changes being discussed. After all, they are all Very Serious People, often wrong but never in doubt. Why, we could almost call them all “economists” they are wrong so often.

 

Bradley Manning: Punitive Psychiatric Status Remains, but Hopeful About Youth Uprising in Tunisia and Egypt

By: Monday January 31, 2011 9:40 am

Bradley Manning’s friend David House was initially quite concerned about Manning’s state of mind, and felt he was beginning to exhibit some of the damaging symptoms of prolonged isolation including emotional withdrawal and impaired cognitive function. Bradley seemed slow to respond when they spoke, and could not process information as quickly as he normally did. Bradley became excited and engaged, however, when David mentioned the uprisings in Tunisia and Egypt.

Harold Ford Is Unclear on the Concept of Non-Violence

By: Tuesday January 19, 2010 1:25 pm

Harold Ford clearly has read George Orwell’s 1984, but I’m not sure he understood that “Newspeak” is not something to which a reality-based politician should aspire. But when Harold Ford uses the day set aside to commemorate a man dedicated to non-violence to speak glowingly of taking electrical cords to our national backside, there’s something very, very wrong going on.

NY-Sen: Ford Flips on Gay Marriage

By: Monday January 11, 2010 6:30 pm

Today was a busy day in the New York Senate race even if you didn’t talk about Kirsten Gillibrand and Harold Ford. Left-wing Democratic candidate Jonathan Tasini launched a campaign to end the filibuster, and both of the top Republican recruits for the race – Rep. Peter King and former Rep. Susan Molinari – dropped out of consideration for the race.

With Gillibrand and Ford included, the day was, in a word, hectic. It started early, with Harold Ford dropping a bombshell – he now supports same-sex marriage.

Harold Ford wants the people of New York to know that he’s just like Sarah Palin: a commonsense lone wolf who will not toe the party line. Also, a grifter.

In case you haven’t noticed, it looks like there are three women lining up to run for New York’s senate seat. Oh yeah, and some guy might be thinking about it.

Potential Gillibrand-Ford Matchup Already Heated

By: Saturday January 9, 2010 10:30 am

Harold Ford really does look like he’s going to take a run at New York’s US Senate seat currently held by Kirsten Gillibrand. He’s staffed up with a spokesman and a pollster, as well as Rod Blagojevich’s old campaign manager (!). And the spokesman is already running with an angry statement:

Harold is not going to be bullied or intimidated. It’s good for New York to have a dialogue. It’s good to have credible candidates exploring this race. So what are they so afraid of?
