GOP Right Boobs of the Week: RNC Post Mortem Edition

By @SueinRockville and Milt Shook Everyone predicted at the start of Monday’s GOP Convention a clusterfuck of epic proportions.  We knew it would be a 4 date hate-fest of lies about Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama & the dangerous Democrats. However, even the most jaded political operatives, many of them Republican, …

Do What’s Right for Everyone

I’m very progressive. I think I’ve said that a few times. A lot of people claim that I’m not very progressive because I put more emphasis on who available in the process is most likely to listen to progressives when we ask for something. I’d like to say I choose …

Why Voting Jill Stein is a Wasted Vote

This election shouldn’t even be close. There are only two candidates running for president who have a reasonable chance of winning a majority of electoral votes and one of them has zero political experience, no political skills, is thin-skinned and self-centered and is actually dumb enough to make George W. …

In Praise of Progressive Diversity

I know I will probably sound like someone crazy when I say this, but to me, the best part of being progressive is our diversity. When I say that, I’m not actually talking about having friends and acquaintances of different races, creeds, ethnicities, sexual preferences and gender identities. That’s cool, …

People For Themselves

Okay, now that Bernie Sanders has endorsed Hillary Clinton and there is unity in the Democratic Party, it’s time to talk about the state of “Revolution” in the progressive movement. Well, um, it’s well under way. In fact, it has been since 2008, when we elected the most progressive president …

Walk and Chew Gum

There was a disturbing analysis in this morning’s New York Times, suggesting that, while the shootings of two men by police may have given more life and extra urgency to the Black Lives Matter movement a few days ago, the shootings of Dallas Police officers seems to have caused “the …

Shove Your “Thoughts and Prayers”

This week has featured a lot of tragedy. And make no mistake, it’s all tragedy. The police who were gunned down in Dallas last night is a tragedy. The killing of unarmed black men is a tragedy. And all we seem to do about any of it is to react …

No, She’s NOT “Too Big to Indict.” Grow Up.

For months, I have said that Hillary Clinton would not be indicted for her emails and after the professional left’s collective orgasm over the past 24 hours, I wish I had explained why I knew that before. Despite the pro left losing their collective shit and shouting that “the system …

The Progressive Solution

Okay… So for the last week, I have been ranting about the PUBs (Progressive Unicorn Brigade) and professional left, and their rank stupidity with regard to politics. They don’t understand how politics actually works, they don’t understand that you don’t just make demands of politicians and they do your bidding, …

A Question of Trust?

I follow politics fairly closely, although in a way that is perhaps different than most of you. I don’t watch cable “news,” I listen to NPR occasionally and the only talk radio I listen to currently is the Stephanie Miller Show, although I do check out a few politically-oriented podcasts, …

PUBs and the Progressive Message

Before I begin this part of the rant, I want to assure people that this blog is not 100% dedicated to calling out the Progressive Unicorn Brigade (PUBs), or whatever you want to call them; puritopians, emo progs, or whatever, and the professional left. I plan to spend the period …

The Unlikable Left

Continuing my rant… Part Four. (I wish I knew how many parts there will be, but there’s a lot to cover.) There are two overarching problems that largely prevent progressives from leading progress in this country. One is, we don’t actually articulate a progressive message that most Americans can relate …

Racism Isn’t Exclusive to the Right Wing

In this, the third part of my rant on the actual liberal elites who (again, ironically) refer to pragmatic liberals like me as “liberal elites” somewhat sardonically, I want to talk more about their fantasies about how “progressives” are supposed to act. Only, with this section, I want to talk …

Neoliberalism, My Ass

Continuing my rant… In this section, let’s talk about ideology for a bit. Imagine, if you will, that you come back from your Caribbean vacation to find that your house is flooded. You have $20,000 available to fix whatever needs fixing, but instead of fixing the gaping hole in the …

Tilting At the “Third Way” Windmill

This rant is long overdue. Sorry in advance, but it’s time someone said it… I’m tired of ideological purists on the far left side of the aisle telling me and many other actual liberals that we’re not really “progressive” because we seem to be less ideological than they. Fuck you. …

GOP Right Boobs of the Week: Trump the Hump Edition

By @surinrockville and Milt Shook Another week, another column in which we are forced to ask the important question, “Where the hell do we start?” Well, as is usual these days, we start with Trump. He is, after all, the leader of the current Republican Party. This week even featured international stupidity, …

Dear Trump Supporters

I have been saying for months, Donald Trump is quite obviously trying to not win the presidential race. Likewise, the Republican National Committee, run by Reinhold Priebus, has been looking for a graceful way to get him out of the race, without pissing off their base to a degree that …

Both Parties are NOT the Same: Gunloon Edition

It seems as if every day, some PUB (Progressive Unicorn Brigade) or a professional lefty (people who say what gullible progressives want to hear to get clicks) tries to convince me that the two major political parties are much the same. Mind you, they tell me this without any sort …

Collusion Among Friends?

A few days ago, a hacker that goes by the silly name “Guccifer” (and Guccifer2) released a bunch of documents it supposedly hacked from the DNC. Now, a lot of people made a big deal out of whether or not these documents were real, but if you bother to look …

Cutting it On Closed Primaries

Look, Bernie Sanders did better than I thought he would do. He did better than almost everyone thought he  would do, and I give him a lot of credit. That said, I’m a bit skeptical of the whole “revolution” thing, in part because I saw a lot of screaming, but …
