O’Reilly Targets John Edwards

By |April 24th, 2007|

O'Reilly Targets John Edwards updated VIDEO: It's an O'Reilly Classic! Edwards just hit the big time, baby. He's on O'Reilly's enemies list. He warned us last week that Monday was the day. The day his "investigation" would release all the dirt he'd gotten, though last week he hadn't named his targets yet. O'Reilly started his [...]

Barack Obama’s Foreign Policy

By |April 23rd, 2007|

Barack Obama's Foreign Policy updated Well, I've been complaining about it and today he finally did it. Clemons and TPM Cafe have the full speech. I've got some thoughts. It's an ambitious speech, as I'm sure Mr. Obama felt was necessary. But it's not the speech of the 21st century, in my estimation. It is [...]

David Halberstam is Gone

By |April 23rd, 2007|

Halberstam was killed today in a car crash. What a very mean month April has been. Here's a link to a brief excerpt from one of his very best books. He, too, was indeed one of our best and brightest war reporters in the age before terrorism struck. In 1965, fresh from winning a Pulitzer [...]

GOP Hearts Michelle Malkin

By |April 23rd, 2007|

Let the ad war against Harry Reid begin. That's okay, because Harry Reid blasted Bush on Iraq today in a speech. Americablog has some great video. The reality is that Reid scares the crap out of the Republicans. He doesn't have the wild eyed look or the face of someone going off the deep end. [...]

Did Wolfowitz Hire a Spy?

By |April 23rd, 2007|

I wroted about Shaha Riza's security clearance this weekend, which Sydney Blumenthal raised. Steve Clemons asks the next question.

Who Lost Iraq?

By |April 23rd, 2007|

VIDEO: About that "progress in Iraq"... The question came in an email. It's a good one. The truth is that Iraq was lost the moment this Republican foreign policy excursion began. But nothing sealed our fate more than the incurable incompetence of the Bush administration and the Republicans who backed Bush at every turn. "Stuff [...]

Hannity’s America

By |April 22nd, 2007|

By now you likely know all about Hannity's Sunday night show "Hannity's America"; yet another chance for the biggest ham on radio to prance and preen around on stage. On the show boat meter, Hannity out egos Rush by a mile. At least Limbaugh makes a pretense of having a life outside his radio show, [...]

From Haircuts to Russia to Bangladesh

By |April 22nd, 2007|

People need to care about the stories of Russia and Bangladesh even if they seem too foreign, removed or if you simply don't understand the inner political workings to opine. There's no sin in asking questions. It would also help if bloggers didn't focus on this drivel instead of things that matter. (Amen, Scott!) Because [...]
