Geek Week


I just had to note that Rachel Maddow’s “Geek Week” has elevated her from brilliant liberal commentator to a brilliant journalist as well. She may very well be the finest broadcaster in media today.

Ugly Poo-Poo


I’m not sure why the ongoing fever pitch of ugly behavior in these Untied States of America is causing any sense of surprise among anyone who’s been paying attention. The reactions and the stories you’ve been seeing of late are not new and they are not random or accidental. The spitting on a congressman and […]

Me Neither


Utah Senator Chris Buttars Doesn’t Want The Gays Stuffing It Down His Throat All The Time …and certainly in my kids’ face…



Twitter was all, well, atwitter last evening, as tweeps watched the bloodbath exchange between Rachel Maddow and Pat Buchanan on TRMS.

Also on this evening’s television version of TRMS, conservative dickhead David Frum, upon being graciously invited into Rachel Maddow’s living room, proceeds to plop down on the sofa and slam his […]

I Bet Prudence Palin Can't Even Spell 'Infrastructure'


Rachel Maddow, doing what she does best, tonight: One truism in American politics now is that Americans trust Democrats more than they trust Republicans on the issue of the economy. It’s borne out by the polls, by which I mean that it is observably true, but it’s also a truism, in the sense that it’s […]

Michelle Obama and Other Delights


“I like my beer cold, my TV loud and my homosexuals flaming.” —Homer J. Simpson I got a double-shot of Michelle Obama last night night before last. She was on the John Stewart Show and then she was on the Larry King Show. Larry King may be one of the most useless interviewers in history. […]
