When the Left-Wing Uses Right-Wing Attack Methods To Attack Themselves

An explanation of how the left-wing uses the same tactics to attack each other as the right-wing uses to attack the left-wing, and what will happen to the left-wing’s causes if it doesn’t stop.

Joan Walsh Says Vicious Obama Supporters Are Paid Trolls

Joan Walsh Says Vicious Obama Supporters Are Paid Trolls

Sometime around about April Fools’ Day, Joan Walsh jumped the shark. Since then, she’s got caught out and called out in remarks that were just the teensy-weensiest bit racist, although Joan, being Joan and a bona fide bastion of the Progressive Left abjectly and vociferously denied that she was racist in […]

Never Mind the Dangerous Insipidity of Dan Choi

Dan Choi’s at it again, twittering and wittering his vitriolic hatred of the President. Dan’s the poster boy of the gay rights’ movement, but he’s rapidly turning into a Cindy Sheehan figure. Unlike Sheehan, he’s still being given a visible platform by the media, and he’s being guided and manipulated by the likes of Jane Hamsher, who is still foisted on the unsuspecting public as a voice for Progressives.

The Professional Left and the Big Sam President

A Message to Progressives: Lily Ledbetter Is What Democrats Are All About

A Message to Progressives: Lily Ledbetter Is What Democrats Are All About

The kindergarten of spoiled, affluent children pretending to dabble in politics, otherwise known as Netroots Nation, hit a new low when the White House communications director, Dan Pfeiffer, was subjected to one of the most immature and unprofessional snark interviews ever given to a political operative who had been invited as a guest to this event.

Joan Walsh: Twisted Sister Punches Down

The British have a great phrase for expressing the fact that someone is undergoing a particularly angering derangement syndrome. They simply say that someone “has a cob on.” Well, Joan Walsh has had a massive cob on since early April, dating, specifically from the moment the President announced he was […]

Instead of Blaming the President, Try Learning Some English

Why are people so quick to twist someone’s words, to make it sound like they’re saying something they’re not? Maybe they need to learn how to understand the English Language

Between a Rock and a Hard Place

Our society treats politicians like celebrities, but is that a bad thing? Is treating our politicians like celebrities actually hurting our political process?

The Democratic Scorpion, or How We Sting Ourselves in Our Collective Ass

So the President’s running for re-election. That should come as no surprise to anyone. Most Presidents aspire to a second term. It’s only natural that Democrats should be pleased. Whatever you say, he’s accomplished a lot – more than his previous two Democratic predecessors.

Joe Bageant and James Webb: Virginia’s Loss

Early Monday morning, I heard about Joe Bageant’s passing.  Joe, along with Senator James Webb, provided me with a seminal epiphany regarding both my political and biological heritage this past year. I was born in Joe’s hometown of Winchester, Virginia – basically because at that time, the mid-1950s – Winchester […]

The Fools on the Hill

For the record, yes, the Constitution specifically gives Congress the power to declare war, but it also gives the President, as Commander-in-Chief, to make war; and the last declared war we fought, involving Congress’s declaration, was World War II

Should The Democrats Challenge Obama In The Primaries?

After having spent the first two years of the Obama Administration, nit-picking, finding fault, gratuitously criticizing, and, when all else failed, inventing reasons to despair of the Democratic President, in the run-in to another general election, various people, pundits and politicians are still calling for this President to be primaried.

The Sheen Smokescreen

The Sheen Smokescreen

Sometimes, living abroad has its advantages, even in the age of the Internet. For example, I’m probably the only American in the world who doesn’t know exactly what’s been happening with Charlie Sheen. I haven’t a clue, and I suppose he doesn’t either; but whilst I caught rumblings in the […]

Wisconsin and Learning from Our Mistakes

Wisconsin and Learning from Our Mistakes

This was never about fiscal responsibility. It was never about balancing a budget and job creation, two of the major subjects the Republican party whined and groaned about throughout 2010. It was all about busting union power, bringing those organisations formed by working people to their proverbial knees. It was about quashing the little man. It was about keeping the peasants in their place.
