mark a rayner: Crazy like a fox

Reagan did a lot of this during the Reykjavík Summit with Gorbachev, but it was part of his strategy. He was TRYING to make Gorby and the Russians think he was a maniac. Hell, maybe he would launch the nukes — he was that crazy. Though this did … . . . → Read More: mark a rayner: Crazy like a fox

Politics and its Discontents: Taking On Sarah Palin’s Idiocy

Politics and its Discontents: John Cleese On Sarah Palin

As Cleese says in this 2008 interview, Michael Palin is no longer the funniest Palin.

And about Fox News, which currently employs the post-political Palin, Cleese has this to say. It is probably the best analysis I’ve heard of the rampant stupidity that seems to infest the United States (sorry for that gross overgeneralization):

Pushed to the Left and Loving It: More Government Propaganda While Canada Once Again Stands Alone

A very strange Oped piece appeared in the Globe and Mail on the weekend, written by none other than Stephen Harper. It was a follow up to a government announcement that we would be giving the Ukrainian military another 220 million dollars, on top of the 300 million already provided, to assist in their . . . → Read More: Pushed to the Left and Loving It: More Government Propaganda While Canada Once Again Stands Alone

OPSEU Diablogue: Martin scores big on frustration of Canadians waiting to see our health system defended in the U.S.

LeDaro: CPAC: GOP in Distress

Sarah Palin’s CPAC Speech. Some audience members were very unhappy.

The Disaffected Lib: Is It Just Me?

When the photos began coming in of Sarah Palin’s appearance at this year’s CPAC conference, something seemed amiss.

Sure five years have passed since Palin was the heartthrob of angry old white dudes backing John McCain’s bid for the presidency.   We’ve all gotten a little older and worse for wear since then.  But was . . . → Read More: The Disaffected Lib: Is It Just Me?

The Disaffected Lib: Ya Think?

Dick “go fuck yourself” Cheney says John McCain’s decision in the 2008 campaign to pick Sarah Palin was his vice-presidential running mate was “a mistake.”

“I like Governor Palin. I’ve met her. I know her. She – attractive candidate,” Cheney told ABC’s Jonathan Karl. “But based on her background, she’d only been governor for, . . . → Read More: The Disaffected Lib: Ya Think?

Progressive Proselytizing: The importance of fundamentals for a stable nomination race

For any analyst, covering this GOP Presidential Nominee race is a humbling experience. Almost everybody – myself included – has made bad predictions. It has been so wildly unpredictable and erratic experiencing swings up and down in the polls for almost every candidate. While the eventual winner, Mitt Romney, has long been relatively clear, exactly . . . → Read More: Progressive Proselytizing: The importance of fundamentals for a stable nomination race

DeSmogBlog: Look to Canada for Proof that Neither Presidents Nor Pro-Drilling Policies Control Gas Prices

Gas nozzle-cide.jpg

Another Spring, another round of totally uninformed and illogical arguments about gas prices.

You could be forgiven if you’re feeling some deja vu. As conservatives and Congressional Republicans scramble to blame the president for rising gas prices, you might have the feeling that we’ve been here before.

Oh, that’s . . . → Read More: DeSmogBlog: Look to Canada for Proof that Neither Presidents Nor Pro-Drilling Policies Control Gas Prices

The deification of Andrew Breitbart: BREITBART IS HERE!

In the movie Game Change, John McCain’s post-defeat words to Sarah Palin go something like this, “don’t get co-opted by Limbaugh and the other extremists. You’ll destroy the party.”

True to form, Sarah Palin had done exactly the opposite of everything about which she was schooled by McCain and his team. Not only has she . . . → Read More: The deification of Andrew Breitbart: BREITBART IS HERE!

Must see TV: "Game Change" on HBO

I was a little resistant going into this. I’ve grown weary of Sarah Palin and the inordinate amount of coverage she receives just because she’s an idiot.

The Disaffected Lib: Timeless – Sarah Palin’s Stupidity

When it comes to rank stupidity, Sarah Palin takes even Dan Quayle off the hook.  In the runup to the release of the HBO docudrama “Game Change” based on John McCain’s decision to revitalize his flagging presidential campaign by naming Palin as his running mate, new morsels of Palin ignorance are floating to the surface.

Pushed to the Left and Loving It: Would a Romney Victory Mean the End of the Conservative Movement?

Mitt Romney won the New Hampshire primary with 40% of the vote and appears to be heading toward winning the Republican nomination.

Unlike most of his opponents, he has not “surged” but just plodded along, attacking when he needed to attack, and standing up to the blows from his tag-teamed conservative opponents.
