About Milt Shook

A writer with 40 years in the political game (and let's face it, it is a game). I am a liberal because facts have a liberal bias, and I really like facts. If you like facts, you'll like this blog. If not, you'll have a hard time.

Republican Right Boobs of the Week – Perverted “Family Values” Edition

Obama Has Made Us Proud

I have to admit, I’m puzzled. I was in a discussion (okay, argument) last weekend with someone who leans pretty far to the right. I’m not talking about “white supremacist” right, but he used to listen to Rush Limbaugh, although … Continue reading

Nothing About the GOP is “Conservative”

One thing I’ve advocated for many years is that people stop using the word “conservative” to describe the right wing whack jobs who have taken over the Republican Party. I’ve had no luck, of course. I’m just me. But you’ll … Continue reading

Digging Deeper, You Find the Real Problem

You know, it’s funny. PUBs (progressive unicorn brigade) and professional lefties constantly complain about things that Democrats supposedly do wrong or don’t do, and they love to apply blame to Democrats for everything, but they never delve very deeply into … Continue reading
