The Dirty Secret

By: Thursday December 6, 2012 8:00 pm

It isn’t hard to conclude that Senate Republicans made colossal asses of themselves Tuesday, when they successfully (?) scuttled a UN treaty that essentially enshrines US law abroad, rather than the other way around they are always fearing. But considering their already shaky popularity with so much of America, the question is why it was so important for them to do so anyway.


You Really Don’t Want Rick Perry in the White House

By: Friday June 10, 2011 5:15 pm

The Götterdämmerung that is the Republican Party’s campaign for the presidency in 2012 has been wild enough to give hope for a round of presidentin’ to everyone who’s enjoyed a few minutes in media’s glare. That includes TX gov. Perry, recently much touted for offering to secede, and throwing court challenges against EPA’s right to protect TX citizens from the polluters that fund his campaigns.

Franklin Graham’s Lament: Government Poverty Programs Take Money Away from Churches

By: Tuesday April 26, 2011 10:30 am

It’s worth revisiting the bizarre interview Franklin Graham gave with Christiane Amanpour in which he came close to endorsing Donald Trump, questioned Obama’s citizenship and faith — and made this historically revisionist claim.

Bobo’s Got Your Repentance Right Here

By: Sunday January 16, 2011 4:00 pm

Okay, it’s my own fault. Watching the panel of Meet the Press is diving into the deep end of inanity, but I did it anyway. Even for the Meetheads, this one was outstanding. Bobo has the answer to the violent tragedy of Tucson.

It’s sinfulness.

At my own crummy Web-Site I’ve said everything I can bear to say right now about the Stupidest Phony Wingnut Tantrum Disguised as a “Controversy” Perhaps Ever, you know, that bullshit about how the Jihadist Swimming Pool of Jihad is going to pollute what people who don’t actually know anything about the place think of [...]

Late Night: New York Times Calls for Federal Ban on Childhood Friendship, Right Blogosphere Aghast, Shocked

By: Wednesday June 23, 2010 8:00 pm

Something I find consistently baffling about neocon pundits is their unfailing support of policies that have objectively failed. Here’s former Bush speechwriter Jay Nordlinger, explaining why Israel was better off with W. in the White House.
