Sharron Angle’s Trail Of Bigotry Slimes Dearborn, Michigan

Sharron Angle’s Trail Of Bigotry Slimes Dearborn, Michigan

Republican Senatorial candidate Sharron Angle is fear-mongering in her incoherent way again. This time she’s hitting on Dearborn, Michigan, suggesting there is a “militant terrorist” situation in Dearborn as they are under Sharia law. This, of course, is patently ridiculous. Dearborn Michigan is a city outlying the larger city of Detroit and the hometown of Henry Ford, as well as headquarters of the Ford Motor Company. It’s also home to our current Miss America, who happens to be a Muslim. Dearborn has a large, thriving Muslim community. Shiver me timbers.

Republican Offers Rape Victims 72 Hours of Freedom

Republican Offers Rape Victims 72 Hours of Freedom

No, I kid, I kid. The Republicans have come a long way. Sure, according to Rachel Maddow, “…the Republican Party is, without actually talking about it, this year, nominating a group of candidates for top of the ticket races that are more extreme on the issue of abortion than any other slate of top-of-the-ticket candidates in any year.”

Fear of a Beck Planet: Imagine a Black Glenn Beck

Fear of a Beck Planet: Imagine a Black Glenn Beck

Welcome to another world, where Fox News hires an African American female, Glenda Beck, to spend an hour talking about her paranoid fantasies on the air. Lots of nut jobs go crazy and a few even kill people, claiming to have been inspired by Glenda, but Fox and indeed, the US law enforcement, stand by Glenda’s right to free speech. Naturally.

The Devil Went to Georgia and He Wants to Make a Deal

The Devil Went to Georgia and He Wants to Make a Deal

It used to be that Republicans were considered the “adults”, but this is the year when counterfeit conservatives jumped the meretricious shark and the Democrats appear to be the only responsible adult in the room. A perfect example of the tatty, mangy grunge of insincerity and graft permanently adhered to the former glory of the Republican brand is the Georgia gubernatorial race.

The Tea Party Guide to Marriage

The Tea Party Guide to Marriage

I thought I’d best just head on over to the Institute to see what old Dan Webster does believe in, since he claims he does not believe women should submit to their husbands. When the Tea Party says they want to take their country back, they mean you, too. You. Mama Grizzly. Submit to me. On your knees, woman and keep that mouth closed unless you can keep it meek and subservient.

Rob Miller: A New Kind of Democrat for South Carolina

Rob Miller: A New Kind of Democrat for South Carolina

Running against Joe You Lie Wilson in South Carolina is Democrat Rob Miller. Miller belies the old adage that familiarity breeds contempt. In his case, the more people get to know him, the more they think Miller is right for South Carolina, and this was evident on the several days I spent with Miller again this year as he met with citizens of the Second District.

The Culture of Lawlessness in Rupert Murdoch’s Newsrooms

Scotland Yard’s evidence indicated that hundreds of celebrities, government officials, soccer stars, etc had been targets of Murdoch’s News of the World cell phone hackers. Scotland Yard looked the other way as Murdoch hacked into phones of both private citizens and the Royal Family, and again as Murdoch’s editor was installed as communications aide to Tory PM Cameron.

Women of the Progressive Voting Bloc, Stand Up!

Women of the Progressive Voting Bloc, Stand Up!

Women of the progressive voting bloc, how long have we been sleeping? I’m not sure how we got here, but our medical rights are not being honored as they should be. The administration is currently going to ban abortion coverage in the newly created Pre-Existing Condition Insurance Plans. This ban would prevent women with serious pre-existing medical conditions — like cancer or diabetes — from getting the abortion coverage they need to protect their health.

This time they will be competent, faithful, and have integrity. This time it will be different. He said so. And after all, look at the picture! There they are standing in front of a small business as they make their pledge to us, so they must care, even though they voted against small businesses. Lie to me, I promise, I’ll believe.

Forbes Breitbarted the Birther Smear of Obama

It’s like watching dominoes fall these days, as one by one, conservative extremists are outted for lying to the public. Breitbart, O’Donnell, and now Dinesh D’Souza.You know Dinesh, the “intellectual” who wrote the scathingly inaccurate “Obama is an anti-Colonial Kenyan tribe reviving OTHER” Forbes’ cover story that Newt Gingrich embraced and repeated. Dinesh, he was just outted as having not fact-checked his ode to persecution and paranoia that Forbes published without fact-checking.

Fox Flakes Out and Worries that Democratic Lame Ducks Will Roar

Fox Flakes Out and Worries that Democratic Lame Ducks Will Roar

I’m tellin’ ya’, you’re going to be hearing a lot about how lame ducks shouldn’t be doing anything – because, well, if they were to do something, it would be more liberal legislation than the Republicans want. In order to avoid this, Republicans are attempting the preemptive strike against lame duck legislation. This is, of course, the opposite of what the Republicans thought when they were the lame ducks and they did small things like impeach a president.

Media: Stop Covering Sarah Palin’s Facebook Lies

Media: Stop Covering Sarah Palin’s Facebook Lies

Sarah Palin damns Obamacare to Hell and lies in process. Again. If the media wants to let Palin run another two month end game around sanity, so be it, but I’m not going along for the ride this time. Sarah Palin is a menace to civilized debate and a cancer on the morale of this country. Let the revolution begin: Tell the media to leave Sarah Palin’s Facebook page out of our policy debates. Let this be a part of of Stewart’s “restoring sanity” rally.

Fox Running Scared from Carter’s Fear Mongering Accusations

Fox Running Scared from Carter’s Fear Mongering Accusations

Former President Carter recently called out Fox News as being a source and propagator of paranoia against Obama, including birtherism and Christianism. Even though the Right loves to make fun of President Carter, Fox was scared enough by his accusations to attempt to debunk the former President via their old Breitbart fallback of misleadingly editing footage to cover their sins. Media Matters called them out on it.

Keith Olbermann Educates Sarah Palin

Keith Olbermann Educates Sarah Palin

Today, Palin must have been high on her Tea Party video release, and full of that dangerous combination of arrogance and incompetence, took to twitter to tell the Left off. However, I don’t need to tell you that in the process of this she revealed her utter ignorance — a fact which Keith Olbermann was kind enough to point out to the Tea Party leader.

Rachel Maddow and UAW Workers Tell GOP Hypocrite to Go Home

Rachel Maddow and UAW Workers Tell GOP Hypocrite to Go Home

Last night, Rachel Maddow applied her razor-like intellect to expose the inherent hypocrisy in the modern GOP, hiding beneath a thin veneer of cowardly double-talk. One of her examples was Bob Corker, R-TN. Corker fought to kill the US auto industry. He filibustered the auto bailout, holding it hostage until he could be promised that the auto workers would be paid less and ultimately voted no on it.
