Harry Reid Meets Dan Choi

I’m no fan of Harry Reid, who I regard as an incredibly ineffective leader in the Senate. And I did not make it to this year’s Netroots Nation conference this year, despite it being in my favorite city to visit. But I wish I’d been there to see this moment. A bit contrived? Perhaps. But…

Dumbass Quote of the Day

From Auntie Tom Star Parker, under this incredible headline from the Worldnutdaily: Why are we discussing racism? Star Parker offers data proving it’s no longer a concern to black Americans And her column begins this way:

On the website of his organization Renewing American Leadership, Newt Gingrich ups the ante on the Manhattan mosque and makes some breathtakingly idiotic and dangerous arguments. He begins: There should be no mosque near Ground Zero in New York so long as there are no churches or synagogues in Saudi Arabia. The time for double…

Ellis Washington = Andrew Breitbart

In his latest moronic column, Ellis Washington picks up the baton from Andrew Breitbart and runs with it, carefully choosing words devoid of context in order to paint Obama as a white-hating black racist. He starts with this quote, which a search reveals allegedly came from Obama’s book Dreams From My Father: I found solace…

Bloch Gets Slap on the Wrist

You may remember Scott Bloch, who headed the Office of Special Counsel in the Bush administration. He’s the ideologue who was responsible for the letter being released that falsely accused the National Museum of Natural History of having violated Richard Sternberg’s rights without ever doing an investigation of the matter (indeed, the letter says that…

As he has pursued more and more executive power in the courts through his abuse of the state secrets privilege, Obama has indeed disregarded his oath…

Why Palin Quit

A friendly source, the Daily Caller, has the admission: She said the media became a key reason she decided not to finish out her term as governor and faults, in part, the McCain campaign for failing to vigorously defend her. If she can’t handle the media as governor of Alaska, for crying out loud, how…

Dan Choi Discharged under DADT

Yet another decorated military officer is thrown out because of the DADT policy. This nonsense cannot stop fast enough.

NOM: Oblivious to Irony

The National Organization for Marriage, a group that opposes same-sex marriage, has been on a bus tour this summer all over the country to promote their position. It’s called the One Man One Woman tour and it consists of a bus going from town to town, appearing mostly in front of small groups of pearl-clutching…

Rachel Maddow brilliantly lampoons Fox News for rushing on the air to promote the fake Shirley Sherrod story and then lecturing the White House for jumping the gun and acting without the facts. The same people, over and over again, promoting the story and then suddenly changing their tune about how horrible it is to…
