Radio or Not Pricque o’ the Week

U.S. Congressman Duncan Hunter, Republican Patriot from California, has no apparent Intelligence. In either lingual case. You see, according to the good and mad Representative, ISIL is now hopping willy nilly over the (sanz enough prophylactic measures for the Lipton Brigade and the lingering, desperate GOP pursers and hawkers) southern border. Says the news-breaker slash pol who just wants HIS country back, and will apparently ask us to suspend disbelief long enough to incorporate the latest science fiction into his tribe's 'news' cycle. Rachel Maddow chose this juicy bit of balderdash to highlight in Debunktion Junction Wednesday evening, a segment [...]

Virginia is for Losers

In this case, the loser in Virginia is Eric Canter. While no one in Cantor's campaign was paying attention, a teabagger named Dave Brat came out of nowhere to defeat the seven-term Congressman and House Majority leader in yesterday's primary. Did I say House Majority Leader? Not for too much longer! BREAKING: House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA) will resign from being Majority Leader, GOP aides confirm to NBC News. — msnbc (@msnbc) June 11, 2014 To Eric Cantor who really, really wanted to be the first Jewish Speaker of the House: Not only will that never happen, but now there [...]

Girl Power! (04/20/2014)

My dear friend Amy Simon is visiting today, so I figured we'd focus today on women!  Mostly fabulous females, but we also exposed one not-so- wonderful woman who was being touted as the great Hispanic female hope for the GOP. Not any more! Mother Jones, the magazine who gave us the infamous Mitt Romney 47% hidden camera video, has done it again. This time with some secret audio of New Mexico Governor Susana Martinez putting her foot so far into her mouth she's giving Sarah Palin a run for her money. We needed to hear from an inspirational woman to [...]

If the Hood Fits

Wow. the truth hurts, huh? Those teabaggers can dish it out, but it seems they can't take it.  Must be the thin sheets skin. Alan Grayson's email was tame, especially compared with the vile hatred he's received since then.  When I asked what kind of response they've seen, the congressman's office sent me a sampling of some of the emails - which really underscore the fact that Grayson's analogy was spot on. From “Kip”: “Well, I would like to inform you that you are equated to a German Nazi!!! … I hope they drum your sorry a** out the next [...]

Troy Davis’ Death Certificate Cause of Death: Homicide

That's what it says.  The cause of death on Troy Davis' death certificate is homicide. The legal definition of homicide is The killing of one human being by another human being. So that's what this country has come to.  In the face of overwhelming testimony casting serious doubt on the guilt of Troy Anthony Davis, the Georgia state board of pardons and parole, the Governor of Georgia, the Georgia Supreme Court and the Supreme Court of the United States all refused to grant a stay of execution.  So last night he was put to death. He proclaimed his innocence one [...]

CNN Officially Jumps the Shark

Poor CNN.  So desperately trying to find an audience they jump into bed with the tea baggers, so to speak.  How do they not understand that the tea party is even "less popular than much maligned groups like 'atheists' and 'Muslims.'" I promise you that I will not spend as much time watching or re-capping the multitude of these "who can out-crazy the other" so-called debates, which we'll be subjected to once a week for the foreseeable future.  But I just couldn't resist this one - billed as the "Tea Party Debate"!  If ever one of these side shows was [...]

The Dog Days of Summer

According to wikipedia, "Dog Days" (Latin: di?s canicul?r?s) are the hottest, most sultry days of summer in late August. Dog Days can also define a time period or event that is very hot or stagnant, or marked by dull lack of progress. The name comes from the ancient belief thatSirius, also called the Dog Star, in close proximity to the sun was responsible for the hot weather. Well, the heat that plagued most of the country earlier this summer has, for the most part, subsided.  And there seems to be no such thing as a slow news [...]

It’s Not the Eye, but the Tongue of Newt that’s the Problem

It must be cursed. Poor Newt Gingrich can't catch a break.  In 1993, he stood with the Republican party in trying to defeat "Hillary Care" and spoke passionately about the need for an individual mandate.  He pretty much echoed those ideas last Sunday on Meet The Press.  Watch for yourself: Visit msnbc.com for breaking news, world news, and news about the economy What was that you said about the Ryan plan to privatize Medicare Newt? Newt: "I don't think right-wing social engineering is any more desirable than left-wing social engineering. I don't think imposing radical change from the right or [...]

Man Up Allen West!

Yesterday, I read the latest "newsletter" from Congressman Allen West.  It was more of a smear letter than a newsletter, but what do you expect from someone who doesn't allow people with dissenting points of view to speak at a "town hall meeting"? One of the key parts was I must share these two funny anecdotes; first was the response to a question from a woman at the Boca Raton town hall which inspired this woman to stand and shout, “That was my question and you did not answer it the way I wanted you to.” Now, if [...]
