Political Hypocrisy and Other 21st Century Realities

Welcome to the 21st century political reality. Hypocrisy all around. President Obama proved that he can release Gitmo detainees without the approval of Congress after six years of hiding behind their intransigence on the subject. John McCain, who is hailed as a hero only because he was a Prisoner of War in Vietnam (certainly not due to his heroics in war or the way he was captured), originally was all for the prisoner swap to get Berghdahl's release -- that is, until Obama did it. As for all of Bergdahl's former platoon-mates (if that's what you call his fellow soliders) [...]

Prouty, the Pope, and more Poop

Meet Scott Prouty.  We've been waiting a long time to hear from this man!  Scott Prouty came forward last night on The Ed Show as the guy behind the infamous "47%" video. Of course, David Corn and Mother Jones played a big role in getting the video out. Corn explained how it all unfolded.

Now [...]

On 9/11, Chicago Strike, Religion & Politics and More

Instead, we're talking about what George W. Bush and his neoconservative foreign policy advisers knew thanks to their daily intelligence briefings. Although most of the pre-911 Presidential Daily Briefings that shed some light on that topic, author Kurt Eichenwald - a contributing editor at Vanity Fair, former NY Times reporter, and author of the new book, 500 Days: Secrets and Lies in the Terror Wars - penned an OpEd for the New York [...]

Working For The Weekend

Thanks to Kenny Pick and Tom Shafer for holding down the fort last night. I was actually planning on taking last night off for some fun... Kathy Griffin was in town for a show at the Hard Rock.  This is the third time David and I have seen her at Hard Rock Live in the just under two years we've been together.  Obviously she likes this venue, and it loves her. The show was sold out, as were the others.  In this economy, when many concert tours are either playing to much less than capacity crowds, or canceling due to [...]
