The Sky That Didn’t Fall

Rupert Murdoch  ✔ @rupertmurdoch Thanks Bloomberg right decision.@now Christie, while thanking O, must re- declare for Romney, or take blame for next four dire years. 2 Nov 12   Reply Retweet Favorite   There are several reasons Republicans are currently snatching defeat from the jaws of victory, but by far the most significant one is [...]

Happy Labor Day?

In Sunday’s Oregonian, right-wing affirmative action hire Elizabeth Hovde celebrated Labor Day a day early by calling for Oregon to become a “Right to Work” state.  Seriously.  Like other righty martinets polluting op/ed pages from coast to coast, her arguments weren’t just based on shaky facts, they were the exact opposite of the truth.  Quoting [...]

None of Your Beeswax

Earth to Mitt Romney:  When you’ve lost Bill Kristol, George Will, and Haley Barbour, you’ve lost America.  Admittedly, these aren’t admirable men, quite the opposite, but that’s precisely the point.  Each one would run over their grandmothers, ala Chuck Colson, to see that Socialist darky run out of office and a proper Republican installed in [...]

Dances With Roves

In a stunningly unsurprising development, NBC’s “Meet the Press,” formerly the Sunday morning leader, has reached a 20-year nadir in its ratings.  Thus, people who are too lazy on a hungover morning to drink poison or gouge out their eyeballs prefer George fucking Stefanopoulous over Karl Rove’s B-girl, David Gregory, and his laughably execrable show.

Slinging Hash

I ran across a story at Huffpo today that pointed out the travesty that the already absurdly low minimum wage doesn’t apply to “tipped” employees; in most states it’s still $2.13 (!) per hour, where it has been stuck for twenty years due to (surprise!) restaurant industry lobbying.  Needless to say, it is the worst [...]

Rip Van Cohen

Considering that Richard Cohen has been a Villager in good standing since before I could drink legally, typing up dumbed-down Broderisms at the WaPoo with thudding regularity, you’d think he’d have at least absorbed a little bit of what was going on in that town all those years.  But no….  it seems he thinks that [...]

Fetid Fishwraps

UPDATE: Here’s Monday’s subversive, unprintable horror: Courtesy of Doonesbury.com (h/t Daphne) For about the eleventy thousandth time in my life, I’m moved to deeply regret the long, miserable three years I spent faithfully delivering the Oregonian, although it was, much to my chagrin at the time, a heavier and more widely subscribed rag back then, [...]

The Punching Will Continue Until the Hippies Disperse

Please call 212-NEW-YORK (212-639-9675), and tell Mayor Bloomberg not to interfere with Occupy Wall Street tomorrow. Residents of New York City can call 311.  (H/T DailyKos) UPDATE: (Friday) Occupy Wall Street will remain in Zuccotti Park. Admittedly, it’s happened a little later than I expected, but it appears that over the next few days, the [...]

Up in the air, scared, frighteningly alone souls vainly searching for meaning in life

Fittingly or not, on Christmas Day, those who love George Clooney and pay attention to movies bound for the Academy Awards will either find the need to examine their lives more deeply or dig deeper into denial of the life they are living if they go see Jason Reitman’s third movie, Up In The Air.
