A.J. Delgado Of The National Review Accuses Women Of ‘Crying Rape’ (VIDEO)

A.J. Delgado of the National Review has just written a horrible, despicable article — an article more likely to be seen on a chest-thumping misogynist’s website than the National Review, but there it is, and yes, Delgado (an attorney, if you can believe it) actually does make the claim that violent rape and sexual assault are two different kettles of fish – in other words, one is “legitimate” rape and the other, well, just a little glitch along the path to love and romance.

The Republican party fits the classic personality profile of an abuser.

Republicans: A Profile Of The Classic Abuser

The behavior of the Republicans most recently around the debt ceiling debate, and just in general, reminds me vividly of the abusive personality that I engaged with daily, for years, until my divorce. No compromise was ever allowed, it was his way or his other way. He never talked about the many ways in which he was wrong, it was ‘look what you made me do.’

Thank you, Republicans, on so many levels: Thank you for spending so much time attacking each other, leaving President Obama free to raise big money and leisurely come up with strategies to counter your forthcoming attacks, which you telegraph daily.

Eric Cantor on 60 Minutes: No Honest Answers (VIDEO)

Eric Cantor appeared as Leslie Stahl’s guest on 60 Minutes and did his best to whitewash, downplay, revise history, deny history, appear reasonable and ‘humanize’ his image . . . all in vain, I might add, for anyone who knows Cantor’s record and what appears to be his rabidly personal animosity toward the President.

Scott Walker . . . Buh-Bye

Scott Walker . . . Buh-Bye

17 days left to collect about 32,000 signatures for the Scott Walker recall – and activists in Wisconsin have already collected 507,000 signatures in less than a month. 28 days, to be exact. That’s over 18,000 signatures a day, roughly 750 signatures an hour, every hour. Hated much, Walker?

President Obama: A Radical Liberal Moderate Conservative Socialist Corporate Stooge?

President Obama: A Radical Liberal Moderate Conservative Socialist Corporate Stooge?

Many in this country, when we elected President Obama, thought we were electing a flaming liberal – and it’s my belief that his ideology is left-leaning. But there’s no trial ground for the presidency; there’s no try-out period; there’s no 90-day training program; there’s no gauging what will crop up today, tomorrow, or next year that may change the game. President Obama, in his three years as President, has seen it all.

Progressives, Some Things To Remember

Progressives, Some Things To Remember

2011 made me weary, and I’ll be honest: During the past few days, I wondered if I’d ever regain my spark, ever be able to find the energy to continue to try to slay the dragons that are roaring and breathing fire over us. It all seemed too much.

Fox Business’ Guy Eric Bolling Allows His Guest To Gun-Sling

Wait, isn’t this show supposed to be ‘Follow the Money?’ Sounds more like it should be ‘Follow the Bullet Trajectory.’ Eric Bolling, Fox News’ newest Glenn-Beck-channeller, was all a flutter about the fact that ‘Mississippi, Wyoming and Indiana are among the states softening up on concealed carry permits for handguns. We, finally, maybe we have finally decided to embrace the Second Amendment.’

The Obama Hawaii Vacation Pricetag: Much Ado About Nothing

Oh, the screaming and crying and gnashing of teeth at the pricetag for the Obama’s approximately $4.1 million Hawaii vacation. You really gotta hand it to The Huffington Post, and its founder, politically schizophrenic Arianna Huffington who hasn’t quite figured out what she wants to be when she grows up.

I’m a Liberal, But I Won’t Condemn the Wars

I’m a Liberal, But I Won’t Condemn the Wars

But about the wars . . . I get crossways with my liberal friends because I won’t decry the wars. I won’t condemn them. I won’t condemn the fact that we’re there. I won’t condemn the President for the fact that he hasn’t ended both wars. I won’t condemn the President for being a “hawk.” I won’t condemn President Obama for taking out terrorists in his drone attacks.

Well, It’s Settled: Birthers Are Whack Jobs

Yesterday, I wrote an article about the ‘birther’ movement entitled, ‘Birthers: First annoying, then distracting, then alarming, now dangerous.’ A couple of things happened here: First, the birthers came out of the woodwork to comment and, if the comment thread on the article is any indication, they proved my point – and then some.
