Investigation and Due Process of the Bushies: Are we Americans or are We Mice?

I am excited at the prospects offered by the Obama Administration, and I am looking forward to a future that is much brighter than anything we've seen since we ceded the government to the neocons 28 years ago, culminating in the last eight years of pure hell on earth. The …

The Republicans Have Lost It — They Really Have…

They spent the last eight years screwing up everything they touched. Best case scenario, they stood back and did nothing, while the most incompetent administration in US History took apart the federal government and put the economy in the toilet. Now, it's time to fix things. Voters made themselves crystal …

Right Wingers on NRO: 50 De-Stimulating Myths Disguised as “Fact”

One of the worst aspects of the "debate" over the economic stimulus package has to be the sophistry exhibited by the far right when discussing  the issue. One of the purest examples of the bullshit coming from the far right was in The National Review Online this morning, in the …

Stimulate THIS, Republicans!

Look, Democratic Senators; it is this simple. The current incarnation of the Republican Party will only play ball when they lose enough fights, and realize they have no choice but to either help craft legislation, or get the hell out of the way while you do. The people want and …

Bipartisanship With Petulant Children; Is it Possible?

Look, I'm all for President Obama seeking support from Republicans.  After all, he is the president of all of the people, and Republicans are people, too. But for Chrissakes; at what point does he get that the leadership representing the Republican Party in Congress — especially the Senate — is …

House Republican Steele Says the GOP is Perfect As-Is… GOP is Toast!

So, just how did someone like Michael Steele, who has no successful political experience — he won one election as a governor's running mate, and has never won election on his own — get to lead a party that most agree is on it's way down? By being black, and …

Republicans: Party Before Country

From Senator: Appointment wouldn’t affect Senate makeup – Yahoo! News. Republican Sen. Judd Gregg has told colleagues that if he becomes commerce secretary, his replacement would affiliate with the …

Meet the House, er, Republican

Them there Republicans must be so proud. Just when you think they're done, and they're about to become inconsequential for a generation, they turn around and defy expectations and elect a chairman who is… um… well… a "keepsake," for the lack of a better term. You see, they've realized the …

Republicans — In the Car Seat, Driving Nothing

I know it's difficult, given what we've been through for the last 28 years, and especially the last 8, but can I please ask progressives and others to stop obsessing over whatever the Republicans do? To put it bluntly, who gives a shit? Barack Obama is a master politician. He's …

McCain and Chambliss: The Devil DID Go Down to Georgia!

You know, I have never cared for John McCain's politics, because he is an unabashed conservative, who would only rarely take a stand against his conservative brethren on anything important.  But I always respected him; even though I disagreed with him, he had principles, and stood by them most of …

Cutting the Crap! What are Caribou Barbie and the Chimp Faithful TO, Exactly?

Okay, we know she doesn't know anything about the Constitution, because  she demonstrated repeatedly during the campaign that she had no idea what a vice president does.  But isn't it time we started enforcing the separation of church and state that is contained repeatedly in the Constitution?   This is …

Cutting the Crap: Conservative, My Ass!

You know, I rarely agree with David Frum on anything, but much of his assessment of the McCain campaign in  this morning's Washington Post hits the nail pretty much on the head. Here's an excerpt: There are many ways to lose a presidential election. John McCain is losing in a …

Obama’s Single-Handedly Reforming Campaign Finance: McCain Worried

John McCain made me laugh my ass off today. I know, I usually laugh my ass off, but this had to be the most clueless thing I have ever seen in my life.  You see, McCain seems to be quite concerned about Obama’s effect on the campaign finance system. Read …

Why McCain Was Always Going to Lose: Bye Bye Right Wing!

The Republican Party is truly screwed, and I think they’re just beginning to realize it.   See, the one basic truism of politics is that every election cycle is different. It’s really not possible to compare 2008 with 2006, or 2004 to 2000, etc. I know, the pundits try, but …

Caribou Barbie Abused Power; Will McCain Continue to Associate With Her?

Well, well… This is what happens when you make a rash, purely political appointment, without vetting the appointee thoroughly and completely. Today, the Alaskan legislature, which is majority Republican, voted to release a report by a non-partisan investigator, hired by a Republican majority legislative council, that declares that Governor Sarah …

NRA Sells Out: Endorses “One of the premier flag carriers for the enemies of the Second Amendment”

Wow. I’m stunned.  The National Rifle Association has endorsed John McCain. Not only that, but they have embarked on a $40 million ad buy, where they lie their asses off about Barack Obama, and his alleged desire to take away everyone’s guns. Okay, let me dispatch the lies in the …

Buying Bad Mortgage Policy from McCain

I know what a lot of you think you heard from John McCain last night about the government buying bad mortgages and all that. And in a way, it kinda sorta sounded like an idea Barack Obama had earlier, and that Congress included in its final bailout package last week. …
