What the Specter Switch Ultimately Means

specter-flu

Arlen Specter?!?!?! The first time I blurted that out was during an industry screening of Oliver Stone’s “JFK”, in which his name came up in connection with the rogue “magic bullet” issue. I just had another Arlen Spector blurt a few minutes ago (as of this writing, anyway). He’s switching? Defecting? “Coming home,” as some […]

Cheney, Rove, and Fleischer and the Importance of Net Neutrality

cheney

Dick Cheney, Karl Rove, Ari Fleischer, and other right-wing mouthpieces are trying to frame future debates while they reinvent the George W. Bush years. Their eerie falsehoods, half-truths, revisions, and lies are given added weight because they sit atop a bed of chatter and static, often called the “echo chamber,” of Fox News and right-wing […]

Mad Dog Republican’ts

republicants

The titillating current titular potentate titan of the Republican’t Party is a junkie, who loves torture, Dominican sexual adventures, and illicit drugs, and admittedly hates the United States, its government, its laws, its leader, and the vast majority of “We the People,” wishing failure for our nation. Today’s Republican’t maxim: ‘And an addict shall lead […]

GOP Steals Seven Million Obama Votes; Mukasey Looks Other Way

mukasey-bush-copy

by Charley James – John McCain lost the presidential election only because the Obama landslide was greater than Republican operatives anticipated and local GOP apparatchiks weren’t vigilant enough in preventing legitimate voters from casting ballots. And when informed by field offices of a potential voting rights problem, Attorney General Michael Mukasey reportedly chose not to […]

“I’m Not George Bush!”

Said NBC’s Rachel Maddow, “frankly, John McCain looks more like he does not want Obama to be President more than he wants to be President.” That’s a problem progressives know too well. It’s the same way we didn’t vote FOR Kerry, rather AGAINST Bush in 2004. The reason we see so many “undecided voters” this […]

How We Can Win

You’d have to be on a media fast to have missed journalist/blogger/commentator David Sirota on TV (Stephen Colbert, CNN, Fox News[!]), radio (NPR, Pacifica) and in the pages of Newsweek and The New Republic earlier this summer. He was discussing his New York Times bestseller The Uprising: An Unauthorized Tour of the Populist Revolt Scaring […]

Some People Say

Some people call it fact, some people call it fiction, some people call it fabrication, some people call it fantasy, some people call it faked and some people call it fu–, well, never mind. We will present the story and let you decide. “Apparent suicide in anthrax case” Los Angeles Times headline – August 1, […]

Looking Back at the White House During Katrina

WHITE HOUSE – AUGUST, 2005- White House Kitchen – A woman wearing a tall white chef’s hat answers a ringing phone. No other person is in the expansive kitchen. She punches on a speaker phone. WOMAN CHEF: “Hello.” MAN’S VOICE: “Vice President Cheney’s office, please.” WOMAN CHEF: “He’s not here. I think he might be […]

Rove Ignores Subpoena, Refuses to Testify; Ready to Gamble?

karl rove

By Donna Perdue – I guess I shouldn’t be surprised that he’s doing this. I mean, after all, the Bush presidency, for the past 8 years, has been full of “create-it-as-we-go” government antics. This presidency has foolishly deceived the American people in ways I once thought only capable of the corrupt governments in the emerging […]

My Kingdom for a Backbone

The Joker

I’ve been watching a parade of slapstick worthy of the Keystone Kops lately, but it’s not on Vintage Movie Night — it’s in Washington DC. Hapless doesn’t even begin to describe it.
