Berry Craig: Birtherism is cool with a lot of tea party tilting Republican white folks who still aren’t that cool with Romney. Hence, he hasn’t flat told Donald Trump to clam up.
Brent Budowsky: Ronald Reagan has left the arena; the great conservative voices are gone; the new Nixon will not be enough.
Joseph Palermo: If someone like Todd who represents a “liberal” network can’t see Colbert’s parody for what it is then it truly illustrates how disconnected the corporate media have become.
Robert Reich: Not a day goes by without Republicans decrying the budget deficit. But the biggest single reason for the yawning deficit is big money’s corruption of Washington.
Denis Campbell: Yet the entire GOP is deluded into thinking they will regain all three branches of government with a policy of tax cuts for the rich and ignoring the 99%?
Michael Sigman: Congressman Ron Paul will pull out of politics entirely. Since his son Rand is also a member of Congress, Ron will become the first politician ever to leave public life so he can spend less time with his family.
Michael Sigman: When Willard Romney fibbed about his first name during last week’s Republican debate, chances are his target audience of Fox fans and Tea Partiers were as blissfully ignorant of his white lie as they are about his Big Lies.
Michael Sigman: When Tea Partiers warned the Feds to stay away from their Medicare, little did we know they were foreshadowing the all-out battle now raging among Republicans for the role of Jester-In-Chief.
Brent Budowsky: The political media has become a national freak show that moves from one flavor of the month to the next, without seriously addressing the things that voters care deeply about. Like jobs, wars, mortgages and poverty.
Tom Degan: Now I’m going to ask you to name for me one celebrity who has died from too much grass. Go on, I’m waiting…..
Bill Fletcher Jr.: The 2012 elections are likely to be the most racist that most of have seen in our life-times. Given this, what are the implications?
Anthony Samad: The Republicans’ whole mantra is to tell the public what they want to hear, then do whatever the hell they want…for lies, sex, money and power.
