Things That Go Boom

What a frightening place America has become in the past decade or two, and I’m going to go ahead, risking the sterling credibility of CHNN, and blame the bombings at the Boston Marathon (as well as nearly all the other such mass casualty events) on the righties.  From guns to bombs, Republicans have an inordinate [...]

The Stale, Pale, Males

  Mike Papantonio, who’s been subbing a lot for Thom Hartmann and Ed Schultz lately on their radio shows, calls today’s Republicans (among other things), “the stale, pale, males.”  This admittedly juvenile moniker, unfortunately, gets more accurate each day.  If anything, it’s a bit of an understatement.  Yesterday we were treated to yet another Republican [...]

The Brown Clown

It appears that Republicans have, lacking any less revolting choice, awakened with Santorum all over themselves.  Rather than just stripping the bed and jumping in the shower, as any normal person would in this situation, they’re using this meaningless and drearily recurrent Clown Car discharge to crank up the Wurlitzer of persecution fantasies against God’s [...]

The Fix Is In

In about the least surprising development one could possibly imagine, cardboard cutout Mitt Romney “won” Florida, or more accurately, “bought” Florida.  Turns out that fetid swampland is more expensive than you’d think; Romney’s completely unrelated and totally coincidental Super PAC ponied up the cash for 13,000 television ads to battle Newt’s, uh, 200.  96% percent [...]

Slippery Slopes

Now, I’ve read some dumb things in my life at the Atlantic (especially since Megan McArdle came along), but this is ridiculous.  Wendy Kaminer, an “author, lawyer, and civil libertarian,” which in plain English means “wingnut welfare queen,” leapt into the fray with one of the silliest “slippery slope” arguments against OWS I’ve ever heard, [...]

Little Men

They’re everywhere – these little men. No tendentious description of the phenomenon is required, nor is a detailed and boring historical context necessary, since they (like the poor) “have always been with us.”   But the sudden “surge” of poseurs, fakers, demagogues, deadbeats, and crooks stands out right now, as our vaunted world economy teeter-totters, [...]

Et Tu, Megyn?

Kelly told him (righty hatemonger “Doctor” Keith Ablow), “There’s so much hate out there. There’s so much hate for gays and lesbians and transgendered people.” She added, “The thing is, Doc, you seem to be adding to the hate.” Now, I’ve never been a fan of Fox News’ Megyn Kelly; she set the standard for [...]

Another Reason To Hate Comcast

UPDATE: Senator Bernie Sanders agrees with the Hag; wants NBC/Comcast merger stopped in light of Olbermann’s firing…. “Comcast has not closed the transaction for NBC Universal and has no operational control at any of its properties, including MSNBC…  We pledged from the day the deal was announced that we would not interfere with NBC Universal’s [...]

Don’t Let The Door Hit You, Holy Joe

To no one’s surprise, Holy Joe Lieberman’s “Joementum”  has turned out, once and for all, to be a wet firecracker; the universally despised “Independent” has, somewhat belatedly, decided to pull the curtain on his embarrassing “career,” by, naturally, leaking the news of his retirement while denying it.  Of course, few of his constituents will miss [...]

Dick Cheney Channels Daisy Buchanan

One of the more despicable things about the Bush Administration, the most disastrous in modern history, is that they’re all still so proud of themselves, against all evidence.  While the two losing wars they’ve left behind continue to drag us into bankruptcy, impotence, and disrepute, count on ol’ Dick Cheney or one of his hell-spawn [...]
