I am so pessimistic about this decision by Harry Reed to appoint Blue Dog Max Baucus to the Super Congress. I know, I know, technically Blue Dogs are traditionally House members, but tell that to the American People who have been stabbed in the back by his atrocious voting in the past.

Erick Erickson on the Downgrade of US Credit

Since S&P downgraded the United States’ credit rating from the sterling AAA to AA+, attacks across the aisle have been complete rubbish. I am not a conspiracy theorist, but this article from CNN seems credible enough to me

Hey Republicans, Share the Wealth… The Somalis Are Dying!

While Americans enjoy picnics, run after ice-creams trucks and enjoy endless summer treats, millions of Somalis fall victim to fatal starvation. Our western obsessions for bikini-ready fad diets and debt-ceiling chatter restrict us from one harsh, disgusting reality: 30,000 Somali children have died in the last 90 days.

It seems to me that HuffPo seems to grow like the weed it is and spread like a cancer through the media world, and at the most opportune times. The week that Rupert Murdoch was testifying in Parliament and getting slammed in the smacker with a shaving foam pie, Arianna turned up in London to launch – you guessed it – HuffPost UK Edition.

By The People, For The People?

A simple statement can have more meaning behind it than even the longest of novels. By the people, for the people. When did our perspective shift away from that? We are no longer a nation that believes in this statement; at least by the way the federal government is acting.
