The “Blame America First” Crowd.

Share

After the Health Care Reform Act passed last week, unhinged Tea-Baggers went on a rampage, trashing the offices of Democratic leaders, blurting profanities and racial slurs, and then claiming that they were being framed by Democrats (no, I’m not kidding). One visitor to my latest YouTube video documenting the outbreak of violence following passage of […]

They said it would be Armageddon. Was that a warning or a threat?

Share

A brief follow up. Despite childish Republicans wasting the taxpayer’s time and money by calling for 23 separate votes on nuisance changes to the Reconciliation bill (like changing the date on certain pages) before it could come up for a vote, the Senate toiled late into the night voting to “fix” the problems with the […]

Health care bill passes (but I may never eat sausage again).

Share

Hooray! History was made Sunday night as the House passed the (ugly) Senate health care reform bill, as well as the “Reconciliation” bill to strip out all the ugly stuff. The first bill goes to President Obama to sign while the Reconciliation bill goes back to the Senate for them to agree to the changes […]

Rove’s faulty memory on Iraqi oil revenues funding reconstruction. A Quick List.

Share

Iraq War Anniversary Edition Last week on Meet the Press, Karl Rove made the following astounding assertion: “No one in the Bush Administration ever said the reconstruction of Iraq could be paid for with Iraqi oil revenues.” Really? Are you F-ing kidding me? That little bit of revisionist history may fly with your neo-Conservative buddies, […]

Time traveling with Karl Rove and the Bush Rehabilitation Crew

Share

A little secret about me: I love time travel movies. Time After Time, Time Rider, Frequency, Back to the Future, and even JCVD’s TimeCop. I love imagining what might happen if one could travel into the past and change events in the future. But one thing I absolutely DESPISE are people who try to rewrite history by lying about […]

The Party of NO claims mantle of bipartisanship

Share

More often than you might think, I’ll start off writing the weeks blog entry, only to end up writing something else entirely. This is one of those weeks. This particular blog entry started off noting the eerie similarities between the dramatic rise in Right Wing extremism and the very people they claim to hate: Muslim […]

BSC Republicans: A Review of Election Night, Texas 2010.

Share

SPECIAL EDITION It is election night and the Texas Primary returns are still coming in. If you didn’t think the Republican Party was Bat “$#!+” Crazy before, the primary results seem to all but confirm it. How else does one explain away such huge support for a manifestly insane governor and a series of embarrassing […]

NBC Healthcare Report fraught with MAJOR errors.

Share

Last Thursday, NBC’s Nighly News opened with a two-part story on the “Obama Bi-Partisan Health Care Summit” held at Blair House in Washington D.C.. The opening segment talked about “strategy”, and how “the Democrats objective seemed to be to appear reasonable”, while the Republican strategy was “to distance themselves from the Democrats bill”. Various clips […]
