New Yorker Cover: When the Joke’s Not on You

Tuesday, July 15th, 2008

A Tip O' the Satirical Cap to Station Agent Fill in the blank. A New Yorker magazine cover is to Barak Obama what a National Review cover is to (blank). A geriatric John McCain in a wheelchair! Get it? Now THAT'S funny! But, what about those thousands of Nimrod-in-Chief Hitler caricatures? Funny ...

Do You Have Faith in Faith-Based Initiatives?

Thursday, July 3rd, 2008

Evangelicals seem to be odd man out this political season. Their much-vaunted voting block isn't concrete-solid this time around. McCain courts them with little success, even after gratuitously changing his official religion from those darn liberal Episcopalians to the more palatable and conservative Baptists. Obama's working the liberal evangelicals with ...

Throwing the Candidate Out With the Bath Water

Sunday, June 29th, 2008

Barack Obama's recent decisions to chuck public campaign financing and support the FISA capitulation bill angered many, including me. And, his explanations for both were weak and far short of his promise to change government. I wasn't tremendously offended by his decision on campaign financing. The decision wasn't wrong in the ...

“Pride” And “The Fierce Urgency Of Now”

Tuesday, June 24th, 2008

Pride. What is pride? On Sunday in a number of major metropolitan areas pride included a parade for those who believe being LGBT is worth acknowledging and celebrating. For others, pride events on Sunday were shameful events attended by thousands of sinful Americans who have no respect for the Bible ...

When Republican Voters Get The Whitehouse They Dream of, We All Have To Live With The Consequences

Saturday, June 7th, 2008

Turns out, Republican Faithful should have headed the old adage: Be careful what you wish for, you might get it. Indeed, with the new book promulgated by Scotty McMessage McClellan, we learn that leadership by faith over facts doesn't work. From the Republican "victories" at the polling stations and ...

Signorile To Hillary Supporters: Don’t Be Stupid

Thursday, June 5th, 2008

I'm baffled. I want to know what Barack Obama did to so many of the Hillary supporters such that they would choose to vote for John McCain in November rather than vote for the candidate that obviously has their best interest in mind. In the following video, Michelangelo Signorile confronts ...

It’s Time the Democrats Get Their Big Tent in Order

Tuesday, June 3rd, 2008

  As expected, yesterday's post about Hillary Clinton's campaign prompted considerable vitriol from ardent Hillary supporters. Though their complaints were numerous - and to my thinking mostly groundless - their main contention was that Hillary hadn't been given a chance to make her case for having 100% of the Michigan and ...

This is a Progressive Public Service Announcement

Monday, May 19th, 2008

We've all had light bulb moments, that rush you get when you get the connection, put it together, find the missing link. It's intensely motivational. Your brain is supercharged and you're rocking. This weekend I had red carpet, paparazzi lined, flashbulb megawatts moments. I attended the DFA training session in Orlando, ...

Red-Faced GOP Turns Blue Over Mississippi Loss

Wednesday, May 14th, 2008

I don't believe in crystal balls or tarot cards...but the fact that the Democrats have now won three congressional special elections in stronghold Republican districts doesn't bode well for the GOP in November. The most recent loss took place tonight in the solidly red 1st. district in the state of ...

Politics, War and Our Troops

Tuesday, May 13th, 2008

At the time that this article is written 4,071 American families have lost a loved one in the war that our nation is in. Many of the kids fighting in this war will eventually face the same politics that our troops in Vietnam faced. As someone writing from a liberal ...
