The Yemenis’ are none-too-thrilled… Yemenis call U.S. drone strikes an overreaction to al Qaida threat.

MENA Mashup: Jubhat al-Nusra, McInsane, Morsi, and Qatar

From the RT blurb… The US claims it has found a way to make sure the arms it sends to the rebels in Syria won’t fall into the wrong hands. This comes after leaked reports from the CIA that it’s about to start funneling heavy weapons to rebel fighters.

Late Night: Crappy New Year

By: Thursday December 27, 2012 8:00 pm

In any normal country, there would be no particular reason to expect 2013 to be an awful year. The right-wing Presidential candidate, who preached austerity, family values, and military adventurism, was soundly defeated by the center-left candidate, who favored, well, austerity-lite, personal freedom, and a fiscally convenient “peace dividend.” Overconfident and overfunded Republicans were similarly trounced in the House and Senate, losing seats in both despite stunning structural advantages.

It seemed that the Right’s perennial hobby horses, from favoring the wealthiest above all others and demonizing minorities of every type, to demanding that every non-military expenditure be slashed to the bone, had clearly been sent to the glue factory by the electorate. Alas, things are never what they seem in Washington.

Come Saturday Morning: The Curious Incident of the Republicans in the Night-Time

By: Saturday January 2, 2010 6:54 am

None of Lieberman’s Republican buddies, on or off Capitol Hill, are backing Dennis Kucinich’s probe of Rahm Emanuel. These are the people that went ahead with impeaching Bill Clinton for trying to hide a few blow jobs that were none of their business, yet they won’t go after Obama’s right-hand man? How– curious. Why, you’d think that the Republicans liked seeing Rahm stay right where he is.

The 3R’s: Republicans, Rhetoric, Rocks…

By: Sunday October 12, 2008 4:00 pm

American Political Violence…It would hardly be a problematic issue if there were no American citizens out there who feel that it’s acceptable to settle a grievance at the barrel of a gun, or with fisticuffs or perhaps the more subtle rock thrown through a window belonging to an opponent. The McCain campaign seems to somehow be suffering from a distorted “50 first dates” syndrome…

Let Them Eat Pedicures

By: Thursday October 9, 2008 1:30 pm

How appropriate Sen. John McCain didn’t mention the words “middle class” in this week’s presidential debate—or in the first presidential debate.

Because as a proponent of and heir to the greedy, corrupt, rich-first regime of the past eight years, McCain and the conservative ideologues he’s trying to distance himself from to win the election, are reaping the rotten fruits of policies that have systematically devastated the sound financial foundations of America’s working families.
