“I could have arrested Karl Rove on any given day,” Pelosi said to laughter, during a sit-down with reporters. “I’m not kidding. There’s a prison here in the Capitol … If we had spotted him in the Capitol, we could [...]
In 2008 Obama’s rhetoric inspired millennials to get active politically. By 2012 Obama’s policies and actions have radicalized the millennials to the extent that they are now leading the way by Occupying Wall Street and several other cities across the nation.
Shorter…no, verbatim Chafets: “We’re all Cheneyites now.”
President Obama has largely adopted the Cheney playbook on combating terrorism, from keeping Gitmo open to trying suspected enemies of the state in military tribunals. Obama’s drone war, which has quadrupled the number of attacks in the past two years, reflects Cheney’s whatever-it-takes approach. The leftist wrath once [...]
There are some crimes so universally offensive that even mentioning the suspected crime has devastating effects. Senator Jay Rockefeller (D-WV) raised just such a question yesterday. In a brief press statement, the Senator said:
“The reported hacking by News Corporation newspapers against a range of individuals – including children – is offensive [...]
“LET ME BE CLEAR”
“But John McCain’s campaign has gone even further, suggesting that the best answer for the growing pressures on Social Security might be to cut Cost of Living Adjustments, or raise the retirement age. Now let me be clear: I will not do either.” –Senator Barack Obama, campaigning for the office of [...]
Never mind prosecuting torturers or banksters. John Edwards’ politics were a threat to the establishment, therefore his penis must be destroyed.

Sarah Palin says she’s done.

I was on The Last Word W/Lawrence O’Donnell last night, to remind people John McCain’s a bad dude:

Phil Donahue’s Exclusive Interview With Sacked Santa! – watch more funny videos
In the wake of President Barack Obama’s premature capitulation to the Republicans in the tax wars, a party who I might remind you controls neither congressional chamber at this moment (they will take over the House in January), once muted criticism of the Commander-in-Chief on the Left has suddenly erupted into a full scale flurry [...]
Item: Sarah Palin Still Thinks She Was Wronged by Katie Couric’s Reading Question
A little over two years ago, one of Sarah Palin’s first interviews after being tapped as John McCain’s running mate was a multipart chat with CBS’s Katie Couric. And it was a disaster. To this day, Palin still has a chip on [...]
Like her or not, it’s hard to ignore the monstrosity that has become “Sarahpalin”. She’s transcended being a politician to becoming a symbol open to interpretation.
For my part, I don’t hate her. I hate Dick Cheney, because I think he knows he’s evil and yet does nothing to better himself. Sarah is just a [...]
