Late Night: McCain Versus McCain, Iraq Edition

By: Sunday June 15, 2014 8:00 pm

Eager to change the subject now that he’s been caught spinning like a top on Bowe Bergdahl, McCain’s spent the past week yammering about how wrong President Obama was to withdraw troops from Iraq. But as HuffPo’s Andrew Hart notes, back in 2010 McCain congratulated former President Bush on setting in motion the withdrawal of American troops from Iraq, even sending a tweet to that effect.

The killings in Isla Vista by one misogynist thug represent a terrible loss of life, most killed with a gun. Of course people can die so many ways, and the Isla Vista murderer managed to stab three people to death and run one down with his car. Still, the focus is and should be on the quickest, easiest way and thus most dangerous way to kill a lot of people: guns.

Late Night: The Brotherhood of the Burning Pants

By: Thursday June 13, 2013 8:00 pm

Lying has certainly come a long way in the new century. Those of us us born in the 1900′s can still remember a time when being caught publicly lying could bring down a President (Nixon), or at the very least, get one impeached (Clinton).
