The Oldest Profession

This tart briefly removed Gen. Petraeus’ penis from her mouth to do this interview, and it certainly shows. (h/t to my man Glenn Greenwald, formerly of Salon but now at the Guardian, for spotting this little treasure):

Book Saloon: We Are Anonymous

In the opening chapter of Parmy Olson’s gripping new book, We Are Anonymous, the CEO of the now-defunct HBGary Federal assumes the role of an unwitting character in a horror movie, haunted by inchoate dread, but unable to see how awful his demise will be.  Due primarily to his own stupidity and overconfidence, a group [...]

Why Wouldn’t Ya?

It seems that while we have been kept distracted by the nonsense (and flatulence) emanating from the Republican Clown Car, our Global Betters have decided it’s high time for another war, with Iran, natch.  To wit: (from The Guardian) “The Iranian programmes are proceeding apace and represent a strategic threat,” said the diplomat. “The aim [...]

Obama’s Protection Racket

Back when Bush was in office, stories like the one below fell like rain on virtually every subject, and always ended the same way; some branch or other of the government would just flatly declare that its past or current actions, no matter how heinous, simply aren’t anybody’s business.  It started with Cheney’s infamous energy [...]

Lose the Religion, Already

I was pleasantly surprised with President Obama’s speech today, and although by now I find myself reluctant to believe much of it will happen, for once he firmly laid the blame for the deficits and debt where it belongs, with the Republican Party.  Of course, the fact that he hasn’t been making this point in [...]

Let’s Play Cops and Robbers

While it is widely understood that reality has a liberal bias, never is this simple fact so glaring as when some righty cabal gets busted cooking up an illegal dirty trick or two; the fact that they don’t accept reality, or must clumsily attempt to create it on the ground, always proves their undoing.  So [...]

From Russia With Love

Few politicians are as consistently revolting as Joe Lieberman, but this little display really takes the cake.  Notice how the loathsome little Likudnik fumbles over the patently ridiculous Fox charges of treason, and instead mutters something about “espionage” as he barrels forward like Brezhnev in the old commie days, sure that any excuse could be [...]

Bitch Slap from the Grey Lady

John Burns at the New York Times woke up yesterday in a bad mood, after seeing what the Pentagon had so effortlessly helped him hide make its way into print, and went on a mission.  The result is a deeply unprofessional and unintentionally revealing attempt to create a commotion that draws eyes away from the [...]

Obamabots: Rahm was Right

When dear ol’ Rahm, future Mayor of Chicago, called liberals “fucking retarded,” he was, in fact, half right.  Some of them are, and they still slavishly pour adulation on, (and heap recriminations on the detractors of) our mediocre President, against all evidence.  This self-defeating practice is most popular at places like DailyKos, but you can [...]

The Alpha Sigma Sigma House

Why is it that one of the most important qualifications for being a righty is to be, well, an ass?  As a group, they invariably turn out to be rude, condescending, nasty, and unpleasant, especially when they’re wrong.  No wonder Rush Limbaugh is on his fourth wife; who could ever live with these people?  A [...]
