Maddow on Bearding Defeat and Romney’s Revolting Re-reduxing

A hopefully satisfying morning quickie. Maddow had one of her more deft and deeply hilarious segments that serve as satire on messnbc last evening, wherein she segued from the Beard Giveaway in Political Machinations to the unfathomable matter of Mittens. As we know and are gagging over (my left leg is half asleep in anticipation), Romney is allegedly about to strap the current family dog back on the luxe car roof and re-enter the presidential primary Fray. A tad frayed but with hair still coiffed to an inch of its life and ready to run. Take it away, Rachel. The [...]

She's been making a lot of news in the past few days: Bellows just yesterday submitted many more than enough signatures to get her on November's ballot, earned the endorsements of both the Progressive Change [...]

CPAC – Laughing Liberally

So the annual gathering of CPAC (Conservatives Pandering Asinine Convictions) starts tomorrow in DC.  Actually, not in Wasington, DC itself, but in nearby National Harbor, Maryland - ironically at the Gaylord National Hotel (ironic, because no gay lords or organizations are welcome). I began the show today be perusing the official program, having no idea how many laughs would ensue.  So feel free to glance through the guide and enjoy all the comedic offerings: CPAC 2013 Schedule The schedule boasts some can't miss book signings, like Beating Obamacare: Your Handbook for Surviving the New Health Care Law  by The Honorable Betsy McCaughey Spin Masters: How the [...]

Leaks, Laffs and more in between

One of the first things I saw this morning was a tweet from The Nation's Greg Mitchell about a leak of the audio of Bradley Manning's testimony from his pre-trial hearing held a couple of weeks ago. Just out: Audio of Bradley Manning's court statement, one hour long, leaked and now published:bit.ly/W57hPk — Greg Mitchell (@GregMitch) March 12, 2013 A leak of the leaker.  Perfect. I followed this link to the Freedom of the Press Foundation page that published the audio, along with the YouTube video (below)  I shared on the show this morning, and an explanation of why they [...]
