The Bailed-Out Bankers’ Boys

Money

Brent Budowsky: Rick Perry’s impersonation of Ron Paul is caused by Perry’s panic while his campaign collapses, while terrified Republicans try to entice the freshman governor and unqualified Chris Christie to enter the race.

mitt romney

Michael Sigman: Picking up on the Supreme Court’s gargantuan gift to Republican candidates in the 2010 Citizens United decision, the Mittster went all Soylent Green on an Iowa heckler, opining, “Corporations are people, my friend… of course they are.”

The Midnight Ride of….

paul-revere

Jerry Drucker: The current gang of Pinocchio complex, ‘pants on fire’ Republicans have a penchant for rewriting history and what follows is the imagined GOP rewrite of our U.S. preamble that their corporate masters would desire.

Help Fight the Right ‘s Attack on LAANE

laane faces

Madeline Janis: The attack against LAANE is consistent with the broader effort by the right to cripple progressive causes and leaders. And as the recent assault on Planned Parenthood reminds us, they are willing to do almost anything to achieve their aim.

David Love: Obama can solve this whole thing tomorrow if he just calls for a new New Deal program already. But will he have the courage? Time will tell, but the President, like this sad nation, is short on time.

The History Lesson Sarah Palin Really Needs

Statue of Liberty Chains

Sharon Kyle: There’s a market for all things “Sarah” — which explains the media’s behavior. They cover her, the public eats it up, they make money, she makes money. No harm, no foul. Well, not quite. We’ve all heard about the Paul Revere gaffe but what about what she said at Bedloe Island?

Nary a Clue

michele bachmann

Tom Degan: If ignorance is ever made into a human virtue, Sarah Palin, you may be sure, will receive the Nobel Prize.

Sarah and Newt: Campaign Doubletalk

tina-fey-wide

Michael Sigman: How can politicians and their consultants expect voters to “re-remember” reality when a quick Google search can verify what actually happened? Perhaps because they know that’s how the brain works — or, rather, doesn’t.

sarah-palin-ellis-1

Andrea Nill Sanchez: Actually, the DREAM Act aims to accomplish precisely what Palin described. Under theDREAM Act bill that Republicans killed last December, applicants would have had to go through a rigorous process of background checks, in addition to paying taxes, learning English, and either serving in the military or attending college.

The 2012 Clown Brigade

palin-bachmann

Tom Degan: Bill Maher recently described Michele as the candidate for people who find Sarah “too intellectual”. Wish I’d said that!

An Elephant for Sister Sarah

Carl Matthes: Just in time to take advantage of the uptick in movie ticket sales is ”The Undefeated,” a film that will hopefully “reflate” the political life of America’s Republican sweetheart, Sarah Palin.

Sarah Palin, The Movie?!

sarah-palin-wide

Sharon Kyle: Just when it appeared that Sarah Palin was fading away, she’s back, this time on the big screen in a full length motion picture whose aim is to paint her in a favorable maverick-y light.

Bin Laden Capture; Right Wing Nightmare

Paul Hogarth: One of the Navy Seals who carried out the mission was a so-called “anchor baby” – the son of undocumented Mexican immigrants, who the American Taliban wants to strip of U.S. citizenship rights.

Tom Degan’s Right-Wing Manifesto!

merry olde england

Tom Degan: I now unabashedly question the geography of where the president was born, Dag nap it! If it’s good enough for Sarah Palin and Donald Trump, it’s good enough for me!

Save Money! Stay Healthy!

710 freeway

Diane Lefer: Once people understand we all face some built-in obstacles to healthy living, it’s easier to understand the kid who lives where the air is toxic and there are no parks and no safe places to walk and no access to transportation to go anywhere else.

Online Egocentricty

ella-wide

Mike Price: It’s like when Ella sings. Sang. When she wanted it to, her last note faded into itself, and then there was sweet silence wrapped into its own perfect moment.

New York Times Promotes Newt Gingrich

randy shaw

Paul Hogarth: The guy is openly calling on House Republicans to shut down the federal government (again!), as he wrote in an op-ed for yesterday’s Washington Post. It raises a question I’ve asked before – why is Newt Gingrich relevant, and why is the Beltway media giving him this attention?
