I’m never going to take Piers Morgan’s side, even when his antagonist is a prick. The blowhards sure are doing their best to drain any significance from the Trayvon Martin case.Read more "Piers Morgan vs. pretentious MSNBC contributor"
Conservative boogeymen Al Gore and Keith Olbermann may soon be facing off in court after the ex-veep and Current TV exec became the latest suit to fire the former sportscaster. It goes almost without saying that the claims against me implied in Current’s statement are untrue and will be proved so in the legal actions […]Read more "A Republican’s wet dream: Olbermann v. Gore"
Mitt Romney may be an soulless automaton who’ll say anything to get elected but does anyone really believe he’s a closet Klansman? Lefty shitslinger John Aravosis alleges The Anchorman’s campaign slogan, “Keep America American,” was purposely pilfered from the Klan circa 1920, a charge repeated by MSNBC anchor Thomas Roberts. Aravosis has traveled this road […]Read more "The Michael Savage of the left"

Watching Michael Moore and Rage Against the Machine guitarist Tom Morello on Bill Maher’s show reminded me how alike the fringes are. Left and right, they share a victim’s mentality, along with an inflated sense of their own importance. The sky is always falling, and they never let facts get in the way of a […]Read more "Hyperbole is what ails America"
As a veteran fabricator I’m skilled at exposing liars. I like to think of it as a gift. Observe. The subject: Cenk Uygur, recently replaced as host of an MSNBC show few watched. I know of Uygur, but not enough to care one way or the other about his television future. Claim: Speaking on his […]Read more "A master at work"
There’s no rationalizing the Ohio congressman’s spirited defense of dictator Bashar al-Assad who, according to Kucinich, is “highly loved and appreciated by the Syrians.” Nearly 1,000 Syrians killed by al-Assad’s thugs in a little more than two months of opposition protests beg to differ.Read more "Kucinich the shameless stooge"
Debuting on the MySpace of cable TV networks, Keith Olbermann reminded viewers he’s the “last line of defense” against those evil corporations, in their corporation buildings, acting all corporation-y. I trust everyone’s sent Keith an e-mail thanking him for saving America.Read more "And an overbearing ex-sportscaster shall lead them"

The fringes are, if nothing else, predictable. Of course Sarah Palin gives President Obama zero credit for the capture of bin Laden. Of course Noam Chomsky compares Bush to Hitler in questioning the morality of killing an alleged mass murderer. We might ask ourselves how we would be reacting if Iraqi commandos landed at George […]Read more "The fringe orthodoxy"
Politico’s Ben Smith reminds us partisan delusion isn’t limited to just one party. “How likely is it that people in the federal government either assisted in the 9/11 attacks or took no action to stop the attacks because they wanted the United States to go to war in the Middle East?” the  poll asked. […]Read more "The insanity goes both ways"
Remember these hysterical reactions to the GOP’s proposed budget cuts the next time Nancy Pelosi or Jesse Jackson lecture Americans on the need for civility. “There is actually a war on women,” [House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi] said Thursday in Washington, taking aim at House Republicans’ efforts to defund Planned Parenthood and restrict access to […]Read more "Let the hyperbole commence"

Over the past few years right-wing radio, in a seemingly coordinated effort, has cast George Soros as the Great Satan. I’m not sure how, or why, he became Public Enemy No. 1, but to conspiracy-minded conservatives he’s the puppet master of the shadowy Marxist underground plotting to take over the world. But according to Neil […]Read more "‘They made the world’s largest pizza, so we burned down their city hall’"
