Will Democrats Be Better on Health Care? Health Care’s Betting They Won’t.

I’m not usually a downer; I’m really not. but there’s a sign that the Democrats may not be any better on health care than the Republicans have been over the past half century or so. See, if you haven’t noticed, we need a new health care financing system in this …

Yay! The World’s Not Ending! Jesus Said So!

I have a message for evangelicals:   There will be no rapture anytime soon, and if the world ends, it will be because humans destroyed it, not God. We’re not even close to the end times, so you can all relax and enjoy life like the rest of us.   …

Six Inconvenient UNTruths About Slavery — Is Michael Medved NUTS??

The column is from former movie reviewer Michael Medved. It is the most uninformed and painfully stupid column by a wingnut that I’ve seen in many years, and that is no small feat. I am including the entire column, with my comments. I tried excerpting, but it’s simply not possible. …

Watching the Recording Industry Kill Itself Slowly… with maximum bloodletting…

The music industry is killing itself, and the idiots running the record companies are too brainless to understand why. Jammie Thomas is on trial for downloading and sharing 1702 songs.

Leading Democrats Need a Brain, a Heart and Courage

I think the current crop of Democratic presidential candidates is the best group I’ve ever seen. Not only would any one of them constitute a marked improvement over the dreck that currently occupies the White House, but I think the field offers us a better choice than we’ve had in …

Bill O’Reilly Not Alone in His Racism

You know, when I heard a black man on TV yesterday, excusing Bill O’Reilly’s obvious racism (see my previous post), by claiming that the Fox Noise host was "taken out of context," I paused a little, as I tend to do, and tried to think of  a context in which …

O’Reilly Shocked that Black People Have Manners!

Okay, so Bill Orally goes to a restaurant with Al Sharpton, and Sharpton takes him to Sylvia’s in Harlem; a restaurant that has been lauded for years as one of the best restaurants in all of New York. So, he starts talking about it on his lame, low-rated radio show. …

Giuliani Supporters Prove That They Have Absolutely No Class

Seriously; by the time the next president takes office, we will have had 8 years of government that is absolutely self-serving, and that doesn’t give a rat’s ass about the people of this country. Do we really need more of this crap? The following shows the absolute crassness and lack …

Republicans Without Principles; Leading the Presidential Race

If you want to see proof that the current incarnation of the Republican Party is only about gaining and keeping power, and that their supposed "ideology" is just a sham, take a good look at their presidential field. It’s probably the most pathetic bunch I’ve seen in years. Seriously, look …

Start Laughing at the Right Wing Clowns!

Hillary Clinton has the right idea when it comes to dealing with the right wing spin machine, an I wish more candidates dealt with them the same way.   Today, during an interview with former journalist Chris Wallace, Sen. Clinton laughed at him at times, when he asked ridiculous questions. …

Bush’s Intelligence Deficit

One aspect of last week’s Bush press conference that seems to have gone unnoticed is the fact that, more than 4 years after he invaded and occupied Iraq, using our forces (and even more mercenaries), he still doesn’t have a plan, nor does he understand what’s happening, or why?   …

Stop Blaming the DEMOCRATS! Updated!

Jesus, people! Will you please stop blaming the Democrats for not being able to end the occupation? Look, I will be the first to admit that there are mealy-mouthed Dems out there, and there are some who act like Republicans a lot of the time. But on Iraq, the Democrats …

It’s Just Not That Simple…

One constant theme throughout Saturday’s protest in Washington was this notion that Democrats are somehow just as culpable as Republicans when it comes to stopping the Iraq occupation, because they somehow hold "the power of the purse" and apparently haven’t used it sufficiently. According to these folks — and there …

Tucker Carlson: Gay Basher

Hmmm… Apparently, Tucker Carlson was once approached in a public restroom by a guy asking him for sex, or coming on to him in some way. So, how does he say he handled it? He apparently left the restroom, and then went back in and beat the crap out of …

Wingnuts Whine About Press Coverage

Ahem. The euphemistically-named "Media Research Center" is now whining that Democratic presidential candidates have been getting far more air time than Republicans. For those of you unaware, the MRC is headed by right wing tool Brent Bozell, and has never once complained about the obvious 24-hour far-right bias of Fox …

Republicans — The Party of “Values” — Part 1: Sex (and some Drugs)

So how about this whole "Party of Values" label the Republicans have handed themselves? Isn’t that a hoot? How about the whole "I’m more Christian than you!" tone the right wing has celebrated for years? You evangelicals who worship at the feet of these idiots; do you feel duped yet? …

Ted Nugent — Typical Wingnut Scumbag

Ted Nugent is the biggest asshole in the history of a music scene that features a variety of assholes, and the kookiest of right wing kooks. And apparently, like all right wing kooks, who hold up their guns and proclaim their manhood to all who will pay attention, at heart, …
