By: Thursday August 8, 2013 3:35 pm

The Romney Campaign Pre-Obituaries

By: Thursday September 20, 2012 11:15 am

You know things are really going bad for a campaign when weeks before the election top media figures start writing about it as if it were already lost or is destined to lose unless it radically changes. This week featured several pre-obituaries about the Romney campaign.

Come Saturday Morning: What Fifty-Plus Years of a Business-Bigot Alliance Gets Us — The Modern GOP

By: Saturday March 31, 2012 6:45 am

How did it come to be that what once was the Party of Lincoln is now the Party of David Duke and Strom Thurmond? It was a simple business calculation — Corporate America and rich people in general wanted to get out of paying the taxes needed to sustain our societal infrastructure, and they figured the best way to do that was to manipulate race hatreds among whites in order to convince them that societal infrastructure helped black people more than white people.

Late Night: Republican Class of 2010 Encouraged To Get Responsibly Sexy With Anything That Moves

It has been awhile since Our Lady of The Magical Dolphins, Peggy Noonan, has graced these, well, not pages, so probably your computer screen or maybe cellphone or whatever electronic geegaw you use to for that internet thingy. But Peggy is back and making the case that “the media” (which she is not a member of despite her WSJ column and the teevee appearances) is going to seduce and have its way with the 2010 class of Young Idealistic Republican freshmen like they were naive small-town girls fresh off the bus in Hollywood.

Peggy Noonan: Obama’s Failing Because “He Doesn’t Fit Any Categories”

By: Friday August 27, 2010 10:30 am

She’s just recycling trash now. A couple years ago, Nooners had a column titled “The End of Placeness” in which she asked, “OK, quick, close your eyes. Where is Barack Obama from?” Two years later, apparently, it’s still Obama’s “otherness” that’s tripping him up.
