Ed Rendell Thinks the Presidency is King

By |July 27th, 2010|

via Matt Lewis Oh, good grief, picking on Pres. Obama because he's going on "The View"? Talk about running out of material. "I think the president should be accessible, should answer questions that aren't pre-screened, but I think there should be a little bit of dignity to the presidency." Rendell said. Obama will be great [...]

2010: Sarah in New Hampshire, RNC Debuts Hillary Ad to Hit Obama

By |July 27th, 2010|

The video is compliments of the RNC press release announcing "November Starts Now". They're using Hillary Clinton's 3:00 a.m. ad to hit Pres. Obama on the BP oil spill. How's that for re-writing history on what Bush-Cheney did to MMS to allow the groundwork to be laid for the disaster? As for "November Starts Now," [...]

Wikileaks Digested

By |July 27th, 2010|

Whatever side someone is on about the dumping of 90,000 Afghanistan documents by Wikileak one thing is clear. New media has now vaulted into traditional old media territory. I'm not going to tell you what the document dump means, as you need to read and digest the information as citizens. But you should know that [...]

Journolist, Sullivan, and Breitbart

By |July 26th, 2010|

Nothing much can be learned from the manufactured media uproar over Journolist, except as a case study of how the right-wing propaganda machine still dominates America's daily narrative -- and how conservative journalists remain astonishingly exempt from the standards they are pretending to uphold. - Joe Conason I'm not sure what Andrew Sullivan thinks he's [...]

Michael Steele’s RNC Date with Andrew Breitbart

By |July 26th, 2010|

Breitbart's hot and Michael Steele has got him. So, come one! Come all you right-wing Republicans and bring your cash. This is how Republicans play the game. No shame. No blinking. They embrace their inner wingnut with both arms and open doors hoping Mr. Breitbart will bring in boat loads of cash when he comes. [...]

Pentagon Papers II, Afghanistan Edition

By |July 26th, 2010|

Somewhere in hell, Gen. Westmoreland is rolling over. Pres. Obama's job of keeping the American people on board just got tougher. Wikileaks.org just unloaded a huge block of documents on the Afghanistan war, which mainly traces the Bush era debacles. The White House is not amused: "We strongly condemn the disclosure of classified information by [...]

Miss Pearls: ‘The Obama White House is too white.’

By |July 25th, 2010|

Jesus H. Christ on a biscuit. Miss Pearls opining on the whiteness of the Obama White House. Only in American politics would the New York Times publish such drivel. That Dowd has the gall to invoke Bill Clinton after all the trashing and thrashing she's done to his reputation represents the height of insufferability. (But [...]

Ed Schultz as Rodney Dangerfield

By |July 25th, 2010|

Poor Ed, he just can't get no respect. This is a constant cry for Mr. Schultz. It began when he targeted Hillary Clinton in 2007 for not going on his radio show, long before his TV spot on MSNBC. That Obama did provide access to Ed is likely why the guy endorsed him, then spent [...]

No Harry Truman

By |July 23rd, 2010|

[...] The injustices endured by black Americans at the hands of their own government have no parallel in our history, not only during the period of slavery but also in the Jim Crow era that followed. But the extrapolation of this logic to all "people of color"-especially since 1965, when new immigration laws dramatically altered [...]

Of Teachable Moments

By |July 22nd, 2010|

There wasn't a doubt in my mind the race-baiting that occurred in the 2008 primaries wouldn't stick to former Pres. Bill Clinton. It was utter bullshit. I also have no doubt that Barack Obama never believed it of either Clinton. You don't tap a racist to be your secretary of state, including if you think [...]
