Heroes for Today: Sandra Fluke, standing tall for women

Watch this video in its entirety and see if you can find anything about this bright young woman that would justify the Pigman, Rush Limbaugh, in calling her a slut simply for asking that her Catholic university provide birth control pills to female students who need them for medical reasons:

Notice, too, how . . . → Read More: Heroes for Today: Sandra Fluke, standing tall for women

Heroes for Today: Alan Grayson

Don’t you love how, in just a minute and a half, he shuts up a whole table full of rightards with nothing but the facts? (And yeah, how about that prick in the green, P.J. O’Rourke? He hauls out every tired right-wing media stereotype of hippies, but doesn’t describe a single leftist that I’ve actually […] . . . → Read More: Heroes for Today: Alan Grayson

Yup, that evil villainous democratically-elected “strongman”, “dictator”, and whatever other stupid epithet you care to fling at his chemo-bald head. He’s a hero yet again. He did this for a couple of complete strangers in the midst of his treatment for cancer. And he got […] . . . → Read More: Festive Left Friday Blogging: The hikers are home…

Heroes for Today: Maxine Waters

She tells the teabags where they can go (hint: it’s the same place they’re trying to drag their entire country.) You may also recall her from this opening scene in Fahrenheit 9/11: This is the kind of fighting spirit that’s needed the world over, as the banksters try to hook us all into virtual slavery.

Heroes for Today: A German, two lesbians, a mayor and a prime minister…

…and, hell: a whole slew of plain, ordinary Norwegian citizens of all faiths and colors: Meanwhile, here’s the German, who saved as many as 30 people from the frigid waters in his small boat. He didn’t stop making trips out to find them until he saw the police coming. And here are the lesbians (a […] . . . → Read More: Heroes for Today: A German, two lesbians, a mayor and a prime minister…

Heroes for Today: Hugh Grant, actually.

Who’d of thunk that an actor who once became notorious for his run-in with a streetwalker would end up turning the tables on the paparazzi who made his private life virtually nonexistent thereafter? Or that he’d become a hero to all the people victimized by Rupert Murdoch’s junk-journalism empire in the process? Certainly it never […] . . . → Read More: Heroes for Today: Hugh Grant, actually.

Festive Left Friday Blogging: Iconic photo du jour

Sorry, no Chavecito, Evo or El Ecuadorable today; don’t worry, they’ll be back next week (or whenever). I just got wind of this one via the tweeter, and it is AWESOME.
