Right-Wing Dick Moves

However misguided, some conservatives are earnest defenders of an ideology. But most are unprincipled schoolyard bullies who simply antagonize without regard to consistency. An example of this observation is their criticism of the president’s (relatively few) vacations. Make no mistake, … Continue reading

The First Lady of the United States

I agree with John Cole about the “coolness” of the First Lady. This item in the New York Times only adds to the coolness. Definitely a must read.

Worst Person in the World

Sarah Palin, who attacked the First Lady in a word salad speech yesterday. Yep. The same Sarah Palin who exploits her children on reality television shows and cheers as her daughter grinds on Dancing with the Stars. Classy.

Sub-rational Hectoring

Glenn Beck and his arguably more loathsome morning zoo sidekick Pat Gray falsely asserting that the First Lady’s Spain trip cost $75,000 per day. First, it clearly sounds like Beck and Limbaugh (say nothing of the lapdog old media) is … Continue reading

Worst Person in the Goddamn World

Rush Limbaugh attacking Michelle Obama and her awful, awful vacation. You know, because the families are off limits. Didn’t people used to get fired and disgraced over racist crap like this? I mean, you’d think an impotent, drug-crippled man who, … Continue reading
