Worst Person In The World


Has Keith Olbermann ever nominated President George W. Bush to receive this high honor, whether for gold, silver, or bronze? If not, he should. The Hill reports on an exchange between he and my new senator, Jim Webb. Webb, as you probably already know, will be the only member of the 110th Senate who has […]

George Allen Is A Mean Nasty Little Girl


Update, 3:18 p.m.: Okay. So he conceded. He’s still a mean nasty little girl.  * George Allen has really misread the results of the 2006 mid-terms, hasn’t he? Among the many messages that should be drawn from these results is that the American people mourn the loss of the hair-breadth degree of chivalry that George W. […]

Begone The Dog And Pony Show

Kerry Should Be Fitted For A Muzzle


It was terrific to see John Kerry all plucky on Halloween. Terrific. Stunning, it was. Almost Bill Clinton-Chris Wallace redux.
