Tina Dupuy: Trump has basically blamed all servicewomen for being assaulted. They’re culpable in their own rape because a) they’re women and b) they’re serving alongside men.
Brent Budowsky: Regarding the conservative crack-up, can you believe that CPAC honors the ubiquitous birther Donald Trump and insults the most popular national Republican, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie?
Carl Matthes: Bitterly disappointed that their big ideas were solidly rejected by American citizens, Romney/Ryan, vapid and insipid Presidential and Vice-Presidential candidates, are now trying to digest a heaping-helping of crow covered with sour grapes.
Brent Budowsky: MDemocrats are attuned to the tectonic plate of American politics in 2012. Rightist- dominated Republicans, who have offended too many voters on too many issues and demonized even moderates in their own party, are at war with it.
Brent Budowsky: The coming Republican convention might well dramatize to the nation the extremism and Obama-hate that is modern Republicanism and become an epic disaster for the GOP.
Tina Dupuy: If John McCain would have picked Tim Pawlenty in ‘08, the Ryan pick would look pretty irresponsible. But now the GOP has the Palin Standard.
Berry Craig’s “Birtherism Bites Back: Samuel D. Burchard and Donald Trump” led the pack this time, followed by Dick & Sharon’s look at the 20=year anniversary of the LA Riots.
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%?
