Ten Years After

© Matt Bors UPDATE: From Paul Krugman: Is it just me, or are the 9/11 commemorations oddly subdued? Actually, I don’t think it’s me, and it’s not really that odd. What happened after 9/11 — and I think even people on the right know this, whether they admit it or not — was deeply shameful. […]

How did Obama get into those Ivy League Schools?

If you look over the evidence, you do have to wonder how he got into all those Ivy League schools: The dean looked over Barack’s transcript and college boards and then suggested in a kindly way that he apply to some less competitive colleges in addition to Columbia. There were no class rankings at his […]

Mission Accompliated

© Matt Bors I just don’t see how they can prosecute Julian Assange unless they also prosecute Bush and Cheney for what they did to Valerie Plame.

Rememorizing

© Mr. Fish Apparently, a significant number of Bush’s “original” recollections found in his new memoir were plagiarized — often word for word — from other people’s books and articles. UPDATE: I also feel this way about seeing Bush on TV again.

I’ll tell you where you can put it…

© Bruce Beattie Inspired by a campaign in Britain that saw Tony Blair’s autobiography show up in the crime, horror, and even fantasy sections of UK bookstores, US activists have launched a campaign to have people move George W.

Bush told Brits he would have endorsed Obama

According to the Financial Times, in 2008, during the height of the presidential campaign and after Bush had publicly endorsed John McCain, George W Bush told a group of British dignitaries including the British Prime Minister that he didn’t like McCain.

A-poll-ing

Some recent polls: From Public Policy Polling: Even though only 4% of Republican voters support building a mosque 2 blocks from ground zero, 21% of them say they would support building a strip club in the same place.

Who would have thought that Bush read more books as president than Obama

If you can believe Karl Rove, he and Bush had a friendly competition to see who could read more books each year. According to Rove, Bush read 95 books in 2006, 51 in 2007, and 40 in 2008. That’s an average of more than one book a week over 3 years. Apparently, Obama is not […]

Axis of Stupidity

Newt Gingrich doesn’t think the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan are bad enough. On Thursday, Gingrich twice said that the US should attack North Korea and Iran. But the best part is his reasoning — we need to finish what Dubya started when he created the phrase “Axis of Evil”: I believe he was right […]

Bush – the Gold Standard for Screw-ups

This entire video is great, but it really gets interesting around the 4:50 mark, when Jon Stewart points out the stunning irony of conservative pundits comparing Obama to Bush; for example, claiming that the nomination of Elena Kagan is “Obama’s Harriet Miers”, the oil spill is “Obama’s Katrina”, health care is “Obama’s Iraq”, and on […]

The Fox Guarding the Chicken Coop

The Bush-appointed head of the agency that is responsible for protecting government whistle-blowers has been charged with retaliating against his own employees, closing hundreds of whistle-blower cases without any investigation, withholding vital information from Congress, and of destroying evidence to cover up his actions. Is this any surprise, considering that the Bush administration was willing […]
