Most people believe in God and are even prepared to declare very particular beliefs concerning him: he knows your future; has written a holy book; disapproves of shrimp eating, etc. And God almost always swings a ding (is a dude). In … Continue reading
President Obama was not born in America? 42% of Americans have absorbed the Birther movement’s conspiracy meme
This statistic, cited at Slate today, makes me despair of a lot of Americans’ basic sense of proportion and rationality. The Iagos in right wing radio and at Fox News must be laughing their asses off: A recent New York Times/CBS News poll found … Continue reading
In this surprising exchange with Joe Lieberman, Al Franken disrupts the Senate’s clubby atmosphere, and gets dazed incomprehension and expressions of confusion in return. Notice that John McCain, coming to Lieberman’s defense, gets more emotional about Joe’s treatment than he’s ever … Continue reading
Jeffrey Goldberg talked to John McCain today about Dick Cheney and torture: “When you have a majority of Americans, seventy-something percent, saying we shouldn’t torture, then I’m not sure it helps for the Vice President to go out and continue … Continue reading
It’s nice to see someone at Fox News with moral clarity on Bush era torture:
Or, at least, I hope this is the future of the Republican Party. I like Meghan McCain’s self possession, social tolerance, and emotional expansiveness. She is the jewel of the Republican tribe. Now watch, in the near future, the self-righteous right savage … Continue reading
This today in the Connecticut Post: Lieberman admits that it is a bit schizophrenic, but since election night, he said, he was both disappointed for his friend’s loss and thrilled with Obama’s victory. “It is amazing to remember that in … Continue reading
Ian Fishback risked his career trying to get answers to the torture question. Andrew Sullivan calls Fishback’s letter, in 2005, a historic document, and thinks that Fishback should be TIME’s “Man of the Year.” Here’s Fishback’s letter: Dear Senator McCain: … Continue reading
Sarah Palin’s “grasp of basic geo-political knowledge had major gaps”: Martin Eisenstadt Outs Himself as the “Africa Country-Continent” Leaker
Martin Eisenstadt, the McCain campaign top advisor who leaked to the press that Sarah Palin was confused, during debate prep, about whether Africa was a continent or a country, reveals today on his blog yet more things that Sarah Palin didn’t … Continue reading
Now that the election is over, the reason that the McCain campaign never allowed Sarah Palin to hold a press conference—or sit for interviews on the Sunday morning political shows—is coming out: She would likely have grossly embarrassed herself. According … Continue reading
If I Only Had More Clothes: Now That the Election is Over, It Comes Out That Palin Spent Even More on Clothes Than First Reported
ThinkProgress today: In a new 50,000 word article on the presidential campaigns that will come out tomorrow, Newsweek reports that Gov. Sarah Palin (R-AK) spent far more on clothing than the $150,000 reported last month. According to a preview by … Continue reading
I felt like, all over America, people stood up for a less authoritarian, less cruel and cynical, America:
I live in California, and my polling place is in the board room at the college campus where I work. I live in a particularly conservative part of the state, and I’ve voted at this location for a number of years. In … Continue reading
Rachel Maddow thinks so. How much do you make an hour—and how long did you have to wait to vote?
The final scene of Dead Poet’s Society, in which a group of students stand up to the authoritarian power structure at their school, and align themselves with a good teacher who has been unjustly maligned, strikes me as an apt metaphor … Continue reading
From Salon.com this morning: Ohio and Indiana — along with Virginia (13 electoral votes) and North Carolina (15) — are the early-bird, carried-by-Bush states that will determine whether political mavens will show up at work Wednesday morning bleary-eyed from fatigue … Continue reading
