McCain – what is he hiding about his military record?

On Sunday, Gen. Wesley Clark said that McCain’s military service, while honorable, did not necessarily prepare McCain to be a good president. What is interesting to me is that the McCain himself went on the offensive immediately, trotting out a number of retired military men – including Bud Day, one of the original Swift Boat veterans […]

Bill Kristol sucks

Now that neocon ideology has utterly failed, its proponents don’t seem to know when to shut up and go home. Take Bill Kristol, who appeared on Fox News Sunday this morning and suddenly started acting like Hillary Clinton’s best friend: I think Hillary Clinton was gracious. She’s put behind her the horrible sexism and misogyny […]

McCain – Two-faced Maverick of Convenience

The McCain campaign (and much of the mainstream media) keeps trying to keep alive the myth of McCain the Maverick, but it is clearly on life support, and getting a bit crazy. In a conference call today, a McCain spokeswoman tried to compare McCain’s bipartisan cred with Obama’s, using the example of immigration reform: It’s […]

“Vote George W. Bush 2008″ – WTF?

I’m not totally sure this isn’t a hoax, but there is a website out there encouraging people to vote for George W. Bush in 2008. How? By writing in his name. What about term limits? Why those pesky things are man’s law, not god’s. The God who parted the Red Sea is surely not worried about so-called […]

McCain’s ex post facto flip-flop deluxe

Consider the newly passed GI benefits bill. When it was introduced, McCain tried to kill it. When the NY Times questioned McCain’s opposition to the bill, he “got a little touchy“. When the bill came up for a vote Thursday night, McCain didn’t even show up to vote. So, is anyone surprised when McCain tries […]

Late Night Humor

“The Supreme Court has ruled that individuals have the right to carry guns … When the decision was read, it created pandemonium in the court. Justice Scalia had to fire two warning shots to settle people down. And then at the White House, just for fun, Dick Cheney went out on the lawn and peppered a buddy with some […]

Ultimate Irony: Craig and Vitter sponsor Marriage Protection Amendment

The Republicans just reintroduced an amendment to the US Constitution that prohibits gay marriage. This amendment has no chance of passage — the main purpose of reintroducing it is to stir up the conservative base for the upcoming elections. But the ironic (and fun) part is looking at the list of 10 original sponsors, where […]
