By |January 31st, 2007|

Obama Plays Hardball with FNC Slander me, screw you. Ahem, I mean, you air lies about me, get used to the cold shoulder, baby.

It started with Lara Logan sending out an email asking for people to write CBS to get them to air some controversial video, which is shown above. What she got in return was a wingnut attack.

Of Iraq and Iran

By |January 31st, 2007|

Michael Ware on Iraq. The wild speculation needs to stop. But with Fox "News" blaring things like White House Holding Back Report Detailing Iran's Meddling in Iraq, can there be any doubt there's an agenda already afoot?

Is McCain Electable Anymore?

By |January 29th, 2007|

Is McCain Electable Anymore? cross-posted on Huffington Post The McCain Doctrine is not working out so well for Senator John McCain. How the once mighty has fallen, mostly due to his own bad judgment. Ouch. (via Markos) I bet McCain never thought he'd trail two liberals, but he may have to get used to it. [...]
