Lobby THIS!

Let’s get something straight here… Lobbyists are a fact of life, and in one form or another, they are not going away. I agree with Sen. Clinton that there are good lobbyists out there, doing the work of the people. But can we please cut the crap about the money …

House Republicans Throw Pissy Fit Because they Can’t get Their Bigoted way

Barack Obama gave a major policy speech yesterday; one that has a lot of people buzzing once again that this guy is the real deal. Of course, it also has a lot of people on the left wondering if perhaps he’s too ‘hawkish.’ Here are segments of the speech with …

And Then the Bushies Lie About the Economy

This is just a crock in so many ways. But the rhetoric contained therein actually bolsters my argument, that our economy is built on a foundation of pudding; our ‘prosperity" is all smoke and mirrors.

Weiner Savage: Did Democrats Cause Roberts’ Seizure?

You know, the wingnuts love to refer to liberals as "paranoid" and dismiss pretty much everything we say as being part of a ‘conspiracy theory.’ But for Chrissakes, folks, it just doesn’t get any loonier than this. Remember, this asshole has a national radio show, and a legion of wingnut …

Bancrofts Allow Murdoch to Kill WSJ

This is a tragedy for anyone who values the news media. Even though their op-ed pages were horrible, The Wall Street Journal could always be counted on to report the news fairly and completely. Now, Rupert Murdoch will undoubtedly do to the word "Journal" what he did to the word …

Shouldn’t We Fine the FCC for “Indecency”?

Want proof that the FCC is completely inept? For years, we’ve been treated to the spectacle of grown Republicans pretending to be offended by a one-second flash Janet Jackson’s right breast at the Super Bowl, and the "f-word" anywhere, to the point that the wingnuts have hijacked the FCC and …

Another Republican (Alleged) Crook!

Is it a prerequisite to becoming a Republican politician that you have to promise to use whichever office you hold for personal gain? Seriously, folks; even the technically "not crooked" Republicans are all about funneling your tax money to rich people who don’t need it. Yes, I know… members of …

Limbaugh the Whore

You know, I would never do an advertisement for Tom DeLay, or Newt Gingrich, and if Rudy Giuliani asked me to do one, I’d laugh in his face. Not that any of them would ask me, of course. But let’s say they did, and offered me millions of dollars to …

Limbaugh Demonstrates Why the GOP is Toast

I used to be outraged by stuff like this. Now, I’m amused by the abject cluelessness of the wingnut leadership. "Comedian" Rush Limbaugh (Keith Olbermann calls him that because it irritates the right. I don’t think he’s very funny, so I prefer Scumbag Rush Limbaugh) puts a lot of his …

Bush Has Michael Moore’s Subpoenas and He’s Not Letting Go…

Since the Bushies think subpoenas are pretty much unenforceable pains in the ass, does this mean Mike can skip on his and tell them to take a hike? Not that I’m recommending that, of course. We liberals believe in the rule of law, and would never consider such a thing. …
