The Great Divide

Over the weekend I accidentally got into a rather bitter argument with a righty; she seemed normal enough at first, but I found after a very short time that I couldn’t put up with her, because there is simply no getting through to such people, nor is there any way to politely skirt politics with [...]

That’s the Ticket

Giddy from their historic, unprecedented, big, giant, enormous, gargantuan, sweeping mandate from the American People, which happens pretty much every time Republicans win any electoral victory, however shady, they are getting as embarrassing to watch as a monkey cage.  Having screamed for months about “jobs,” Republican governors immediately killed thousands of them by stopping large, [...]

Daddy Warbuck’s Little Girl

I used to think time was on my side with ol’ Dick Cheney; that that ticker of his couldn’t possibly continue to propel his fetid corpus onto Meet the Press and whatnot, to croak dire threats of the danger of everyone not doing exactly whatever he said, for much longer.  That he was always later [...]

Winning Ugly

I suppose it’s old news now that the Republicans have let slip their inner (or in the case of Rich Iott, outer…) Nazis this election cycle; the “arrest” of a reporter by Joe Miller’s goons, the head-stomper at the Rand Paul “rally,” yesterday’s assault on a young, female protester at a Dino Rossi event show [...]

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 [...]

At Least They Asked

“The concern is that WikiLeaks as an organization should not be made more credible by having credible news organizations facilitate what they’re doing.” –Col. Dave Lapan, Pentagon spokesman (with a straight face…) The Pentagon, which devours about half of the US budget Defending our Freedom, has “asked” the news media if it would refrain from [...]

You Should Have Seen the Other Guy

Today a conservative caller who naturally identified himself as a Democrat called Thom Hartmann’s show to harshly criticize Obama’s Mission Accomplished, the Sequel, because it failed to praise effusively enough the genius of George Bush and the “success of the surge.”   This in itself wasn’t surprising, given that the round-the-clock devotion to the Legacy [...]

Quote Of Note From The CHNN B.S. Clean Up Desk

“At the Islamophobia command center, Murdoch’s News Corporation, the hypocrisy is, if anything, thicker.  A recent Wall Street Journal editorial darkly cited unspecified ‘reports’ that Park51 has ‘money coming from Saudi charities or Gulf princes that also fund Wahabi madrassas.’  As Jon Stewart observed, this brand of innuendo could also be applied to News Corp., [...]

The Fart Heard ‘Round the Church

Despite myself and prior opinions of the man, I would like to raise an Independence Day glass (or, more likely, several…) to Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele, who, in his adorably loopy style, has given me a reason to feel patriotic on America’s Birthday.  Once again, unintentional honesty from a Republican has suddenly given [...]
