Warren Kinsella: This week’s column: forget the liar – but get back the ones he’s lied to

Your perspective on the Republican National Convention depends on your politics, of course.  If you are in any way progressive, it was a five-alarm dumpster fire, a bonfire of insanities, a crazy conflagration of fear and loathing. It made Fight Club and Dr. Strangelove seem like newsreel footage.  If you are a Trump-style conservative, however, […] . . . → Read More: Warren Kinsella: This week’s column: forget the liar – but get back the ones he’s lied to

Warren Kinsella: The Democrats’ “scandal”

So, the chair of the DNC picked sides. In my experience, in every leadership race, every party official picks sides. They want to keep their job, so they have a perhaps-understandable tendency to oscillate towards the perceived winner. Happens all the time. That said, a few observations about the Democratic Party’s “scandal,” which – when […] . . . → Read More: Warren Kinsella: The Democrats’ “scandal”

Warren Kinsella: God Save the All-You-Can-Eat Buffet

Johnny Rotten in MALIBU. Beside a VOLVO. Whenever I’ve interviewed him, he was sleek, supercilious and snarky. He’s obviously now going for a different look. Get back on tour, Big Guy. California is not good for you. . . . → Read More: Warren Kinsella: God Save the All-You-Can-Eat Buffet

Warren Kinsella: Tim Kaine is God

Spotted by Andrew Coyne: Tim Kaine, VP-to-be, loves the ‘Mats! The band that saved my life! I doubt Hillary will permit ‘Fuck School’ to be played at the Inauguration, but one thing’s for sure: Lisa and me are heading to NYC in October to get that man elected! Punk rock demands our presence on the hustings! Until […] . . . → Read More: Warren Kinsella: Tim Kaine is God

Warren Kinsella: If someone mocked your wife’s looks and said your father is a murderer, would you endorse him?

No sane person would. But the Trump Troops aren’t sane. They think Ted Cruz should put Donald Trump before his own family, I guess.  Some of this latest GOP contretemps flared up on my Twitter feed, with a Canadian (!) Trumpster defending the bilious, barf-inducing billionaire. My response: You'd call a five-alarm dumpster fire an occasion […] . . . → Read More: Warren Kinsella: If someone mocked your wife’s looks and said your father is a murderer, would you endorse him?

Warren Kinsella: Queer

I am still uncomfortable with that word. I know that many gays and lesbians use it all the time – essentially to take back the word, and strip of its formerly-negative connotation – but I’m not there yet. It still strikes me as a profound insult, a put-down designed to place a person outside the […] . . . → Read More: Warren Kinsella: Queer

Warren Kinsella: In dangerous times: What do you say? What do you do?

Hours after last night’s horror in Nice, France, I don’t know what to say or do.  I’m just a guy with a web site and a newspaper column. I don’t have any power and I don’t have much in the way of influence, either. What can I do to stop the sort of relentless, genocidal […] . . . → Read More: Warren Kinsella: In dangerous times: What do you say? What do you do?
