Late Night: Pouting Baby Doesn’t Understand Why They Are Taking Bradley’s Clothes Away

By: Thursday March 3, 2011 8:00 pm

Why did they make Bradley spend the night naked? What could he have done to make them do that? He’s been in his jail cell 23 hours a day without talking to anyone, so I don’t see how he had a chance to do anything to make the jail people mad.


Late Night: ‘And That’s How I Know That It’s Time to Be Brave’

By: Monday February 28, 2011 8:00 pm

This house was open. This house was everybody’s, belonged to anybody who opened the door that day, anybody who could come and stay. And Governor Walker locked it down. Locked it away. Bolted it shut. They’re rifling through purses now, scanning briefcases. You have to take off your coat to come in. You have to wait in line.

Late Night: Pouting Baby Wants to Know if Little Davey P Will Investigate Himself

By: Thursday February 24, 2011 8:00 pm

Little Davey P is busy lying to the people in Washington again. This morning, Nice Mike Hastings had a very interesting article at Rolling Stone. He described how Bad Billy C and Screaming Greg B made Lt. Col. Holmes do mind tricks on important Washington people who were visiting Afghanistan. Mr. Jim explained it all right here and told us how Bad Billy C was probably doing this because Little Davey P wanted him to.

But now, Little Davey P is acting like he had nothing to do with the mind tricks and is calling for Bad Billy C to be investigated.

Late Night: Obama Says Drugs Aren’t a Health Issue, They’re a Legal Matter

By: Tuesday February 15, 2011 8:00 pm

While President Obama told Law Enforcement Against Prohibition member MacKenzie Allen, a retired deputy sheriff during an interview with the organization:

We have to think more about drugs as a public health problem

his comments on the new federal drug new budget show things in a different light.

Late Night: Possibly We Should Stop Sucking So Much

By: Monday February 14, 2011 8:00 pm

The stories immediately post-9/11 made me want to throw things: “Why do they hate us?” I can’t imagine. Because for years we dropped bombs on their children? Would that possibly piss YOU off a little, if someone did that to you? What would you do, if someone killed your family, everyone you knew, tore a gaping hole in the roof of your house, in your business, in your life, and then walked away? What would you want, of them? And knowing what you want, how dare you assume anyone, no matter where they live or what language they speak, would want anything different?

Late Night: The Shock Doctrine in Wisconsin

By: Friday February 11, 2011 8:00 pm

Three months ago in this space, I wrote about Wisconsin governor-elect Scott Walker, who was showboating by making bogus demands and proclamations even though he was still two months from being inaugurated.

It’s probably no surprise that actually taking office hasn’t diminished Walker’s ambitions.

Late Night: Pouting Baby Doesn’t Understand Why the Bad Men Won’t Just Go Away

By: Thursday February 10, 2011 8:00 pm

I hope Heartless Dick and RumaDon stay gone after today, and I hope Hoser Mubarak and his vice-torturer go away tomorrow. All of these bad men worked together to hurt a lot of people and it’s time for them to just go away and let nice people take over.

Late Night: Palin Family’s Latest Flails and Fails

By: Tuesday February 8, 2011 8:00 pm

When last we visited the Alaskan All-stars, aka the the Superstar Snowbunnies, the Thrillas from Wasilla, Sarah was shootin’ elks on her reee-aliteee teevee show and Li’l Bristol had jest ’bout won the dancin’ show.

Well now it’s almost Valentine’s Day and time to check in on the family.

Late Night: What an Anti-Journalism World Looks Like

By: Monday February 7, 2011 8:00 pm

This is what we do, human beings, we look around our own lives and we talk about what’s going on. It’s the only way we do this, the only way we really connect. And as a reporter sometimes your job is to point the camera at something somebody else doesn’t want it pointed at, and tell everyone you can as much as you can about what’s going on. And that job is dangerous, and it’s scary, and it’s necessary as blood.

The world that anti-journalism conservatives, the ones who rant about the “lamestream media” and chat and wave their fists at reporters, envision? That world, in which “enemy journalists” publishing stuff they don’t like and stuff that contradicts their worldview are harassed out of business, beaten, even killed? It’s happening now in Egypt. I hope they’re watching. I hope they’re paying attention.

And I hope, though I have no reason on earth to believe they’ll ever think this hard, that they’re wondering if this is really so very funny after all.

Late Night: The Mark of Failure

By: Friday February 4, 2011 8:00 pm

Hopefully, you’ve been too busy in recent weeks following real news — like the ongoing events in Egypt — to have heard about someone’s lame attempt to relive the Clinton years by writing a gossipy pseudo-biographical novel about Barack Obama.
