Republicans: Democrats Enslave Blacks

It’s not Democrats, after all, who marginalize and disenfranchise black or other minority voters. It’s not Democrats who are accusing America’s first black president of being a watermelon-picking white-hating racist and a Muslim. It’s not Democrats who go to Tea Party rallies and wave Confederate flags all over the place. That would be the Republicans.

The War on Liberty

Liberty stands for human rights and freedoms. It was appreciation of America's embrace of liberty that brought Lady Liberty to these shores. If we won't defend her now, we might as well send her back, because we will have proven ourselves unworthy of her.

Forbes Breitbarted the Birther Smear of Obama

Obama Smears Proven False Again

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 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.

About Last Night, Republicans….

And then yesterday, as the President got ready to announce the last combat troops were out of Iraq, and the nation could finally let out its war-weary breath on one front, Republicans had the nerve, the unmitigated gall, to warn the President of the United States to not take "credit" for Iraq. Instead of acknowledging these sacrifices over your mistake, instead of fighting for Veterans' benefits, instead of finding one damn thing to be positive about, Republicans can not stop being ungrateful, petty, small-minded, empty-hearted partisan hacks.

Stuck in the 80s GOP Compares Obama to Clark Griswold

Well, let me fill you in, lest you be caught unawares at the water cooler by a colleague who begins to spew Fox Talking Points. The RNC had a blog post about President Obama taking “another” vacation. Another brilliantly relevant and accurate political criticism of the President naturally ensued. Glaring as it was in hypocrisy, Republicans took a shine to it. They figure between the racial division they’re drumming up on one hand, this little nod to the lazy Black man on the other will really finish Obama off and get them the House back this fall!

The Ghost of Vietnam Haunts the Left and Right Over Iraq

I don’t know about you, but for years, I’ve been secretly longing for that Time Life moment post World War II; the kiss of a returning soldier, the final exhale of an exhausted nation. I can’t say that I pictured a happy America, but I had imagined a unified America. But we aren't going to get that moment, because there was a war in between WWII and Iraq. We're scared. Not only have we’ve been lied to rather recently (WMD), but we're battling with our national scars from our defeat in Vietnam.
