Geek Week

28-May-10

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.

Gusher Clean-up Too Slow

28-May-10

I don’t think the Obama Administration has been dragging its feet in plugging up the gusher, but they get a mixed report from me on their handling of the cleanup. Admittedly, the decision to leave British Petroleum in charge of the leak appears to have been wise. No one else really has any idea how […]

Roeder the Tiller Killer

27-May-10

It is ironic, isn’t it, Alanis, that Scott Roeder, the crazy redneck who one year ago this week murdered Dr. George Tiller at a church, likely egged on by the rhyming urges of one Bill Orally, was sentenced to life without parole for 50 years and not to an appointment with a firing squad? And […]

You Read It Here First

27-May-10

As the Republican Party works itself into a lather over the Obama administration’s offer of a job to Rep. Joe Sestak (D-Penn) in exchange for him not entering the Pennsylvania Senate primary, seasoned political observers, historians, and lawyers are responding with veritable yawns. American presidential history is littered with quid pro quos, implicit and explicit […]

She Said 'Bushism'

27-May-10

There for a minute, I thought Helen Thomas told the President of these Untied States not to give her any bullshit. Thank goodness the New York Times liveblogged the press conference. From Jeff Zeleny: President Obama – perhaps looking to change the subject? – called on Helen Thomas, the longest-serving member of the White House […]

Sestak's Deal With Obama: BFD

25-May-10

One of the more bullshit stories that has come out of the recent election is the “What did Obama offer Sestak?” saga. The claim is that President Obama offered Rep. Sestak something real important if he would get out of the Pennsylvania senate race and leave the path open to Democrat turned Republican turned Democrat […]

'Obama's Katrina' My Ass

25-May-10

Am starting to hear even from liberal commentators that the Oil Geyser is starting to feel like “Obama’s Katrina.” Hogwash. Yes. It’s bad. It’s so bad it’s making Bobby Jindal look good. Remember. THIS is Bobby Jindal: Of course, it would behoove us to remember that Jindal is a card-carrying member of the “drill baby […]

But Dick Blumenthal Is

20-May-10

An avid Howard Stern fan such as myself cannot help but think of one of Stern’s classic bits these days: Stern’s Vietnam stories. Stern, born in 1954, was just a bit on the young side to have served; he’d have been 19 in 1973. Still, Stern would regale his audience with his war stories. Am […]

No, Rand Paul Is Not Insane

20-May-10

Am just listening to Stephanie Miller read an e-mail that indicates in many creative ways that newly-minted Kentucky senatorial candidate Rand Paul is insane, following his interview on The Rachel Maddow Show last evening. That’s the scary thing, though. He’s not insane. The interview was just aggravating. Paul knows he can’t come out and say […]

Rand Paul's Nonsense

20-May-10

Watching Rand Paul try to wiggle out from his statements about opposition to The Civil rights Act of 1964 was like watching a weasel trying to find an escape route from a chicken pen. For a man who says he is not a politician, it was a study in political obfuscation. (Kudos to Rachel for […]
