Dark Days

Watching this speech, I realized two things:  1) Why insecure and compromised Western governments can’t not go after Julian Assange, and 2)  Why those Swedish tarts wanted to get naked with him.   Heck, by 1:08 or so I wanted to have his baby.  I know the speech is long, but I heartily encourage everyone to [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

What Are the Chances?

There seem to be two types of GOP/Fox News lies: outright ones, which can be pretty much immediately disproved, but nonetheless Fox watchers will still believe anyway, and conjectural ones, which rely on scary predictions that don’t ever have to come true to accomplish the goal of the moment, due to the mass-Alzheimer’s that afflicts [...]

All This and Mamie, Too

In light of the Wikileaks fiasco, I’ve gotten to thinking a lot about good ol’ Ike, who chose to use his final speech as President, a mere two and a half minutes long, to warn America that we’d end up, well, how we have ended up if we didn’t watch out.  Clearly, we didn’t watch [...]

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 [...]

Thomas Jefferson Was Right

Thomas Jefferson, who was constantly and viciously hounded by his opponents in the press, once declared that, given the choice, he’d still rather have newspapers and no government than government and no newspapers.  Fortunately, television had not yet been invented, so that Sally Hemings story took a couple of hundred years to take off; maybe [...]

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 [...]

My Future Husband

Well, today I read an interview with Wikileaks founder Julian Assange in Der Spiegel, and I think I’m in love.  I know, Glenn Greenwald saw him first, but too bad; he’s mine.  Remember that before reading this, by the way. In a SPIEGEL interview, WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, 39, discusses his decision to publish the [...]
