The corporate media allowed two Christian leaders to take over the Easter Sunday morning airwaves in order to launch a partisan attack on President Obama.
Rick Santorum is not only doubling down on his promise to ban porn, but he is making up his own facts to support his plan to suppress the First Amendment.
The criticism of leaving Iraq comes from all sides. For the Left the troops can't get out fast enough, and to the Right the troops should never leave at all. The Iraq War is a moral dilemma that has divided America for seven plus years. As it winds down, it's time to start healing.
For the last, oh my Gosh, almost TWO years since Palin hit the national scene, conservatives have been salivating over the Democrats' alleged fear of Sarah Palin. Striking "fear" into their "enemies" is part of the entire worldview of these folks. Everything is seen as a war, a power structure of over and under, best exemplified by Palin's selling herself as a hunter and someone who just got things done in Alaska (contrary to her actual record and her quitting of her job). While I reject this worldview, it's important to note that their largest strategic failure is not their worldview, but their misinterpretation of the Left's outrage over Palin.
An exclusive interview with Alicia Lewis, who found herself the unwitting victim of the Sarah Palin attack machine during the Palin Stanislaus speech shakedown. In the course of following a lead about documents which were being disposed of suspiciously, Ms. Lewis stumbled into the middle of another Palin drama and found herself being labeled a dumpster diver and "political operative" by Sarah Palin during Palin's national speech last weekend.
The Washington Post, that "liberal elite" paper, is following in Fox's footsteps by regurgitating false Miranda information, suggesting that Miranda rights are optional and should not be employed with suspected terrorists, even if said suspect is an American citizen. Fox News has long advanced the claim that reading Abdulmutallab Miranda rights compromised the government's ability to get information. This, of course, was not an issue for Fox when the Bush administration handled the suspected terrorists the exact same way. When they're not trying to terrorize Americans into voting for them, the Right is trying to terrorize Americans into giving away all of their freedoms.
A weekly round up of the Republican Wing Nut Circus: This week, Republicans were freaked out over good news about the economy (say it ain’t so, Joe!) so in their ever impressive attempt to "take back their country", they did what all Real Americans do -- they focused on animals. Yes, from suggesting we barter chickens for healthcare to comparing illegal immigrants to dogs,it's been a wild GOP ride this week. Please no comments on the disturbing Freudian slips of the party of Repression and Regression. This is tough enough.
