Political discourse.

Clinton and Sanders Set For High-Stakes Democratic Debate. Oh, and also O’Malley. Scheduled, as it is, in the middle of a three day weekend.  Just as the last one was scheduled sometime during Holiday Season.  The vision of the DNC head, to hold as few debates as possible that will not be seen. Still, an […]

I’m watching the game — Seahawks versus Vikiings — with two others.  A man and a woman.  The man holds tightly to this sports watching ideology steeped at the axis of Vegas and Sabermetrics — hewing to statistics and probabilities.  He insists that the Seahawks oughta go for it on a fourth down at

Is this a joke? Members of a group from outside Oregon arrived on Friday at the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge to “secure a perimeter” around the compound and prevent “a Waco-style situation.” The arrival of the “3% of Idaho” was the latest development in the situation outside Burns, wh

We begin with Webster Tarpley, whose admirers are circulating the “bottom half of the Internet” to let everyone know Webster Tarpley has exposed ISIS as a CIA plot to de-stabilize the Mid-East… Have a look at what Dr.Webster Tarpley has to say oon the creation of ISIS that it is an American secret army cre

November 8.  And Presidential Elect Donald Trump walks up to the podium and stadium full of the excited cheerful. “I have an announcement to make.  This was all supposed to be a joke.  I have billions of dollars, and decided what the hell, I’ll spend it on on one giant joke — see how far […]

I hate to say this, because it doesn’t really affect policy, attitudes toward the vast entity, or what the where is going on, but this statistic… currently being cited in news releases about the big stand-off of a bunch of Bundys and canned food enthusiasts out near Burns, Oregon, confusing the locals… The

As per my annual habit, I take a look at the late, last week or maybe second to last week play-off scenarios for the NFL, and take some merry amusement at whatever line of absurdism springs forth. This year.  The AFC South title, and with it the 4-seed in the AFC playoffs, remains undecided.  Kind […]

John Kerry? He meets some guy with the Carlyle Group and… that’s enough to stick him in the current stock news freed about “furious searches” for some anti-Clinton anti-Sanders Democrat.  Sooo…  This sums it all up about right. The New York Times reports today that “some” Democrats were

Hm. Seems to be a “whack your hair” type barber.    Sure, there’s a lot of gender normativ-ism in this one, where the cuts are stuck in some 50s crewcut esque, but as the barbers claim… they’ve given them to women too, (as one barber there said “probably gay”). Though she has othe

Mississippi’s Democratic nominee for governor gets the front page (albeit under the fold) treatement in the New York Times… The party that was once the alpha and omega of Southern politics is now having to explain that its headline candidate in Mississippi was elected on the following grounds: “He was the firs

  Rick Perry said it… In an interview with Fox News, Perry was asked about speculation coming from Donald Trump that Perry would drop out of the race. “A broken clock is right once a day,” Perry replied with a smile, before adding that he was still in the race. Ha ha; let’s have a […]

One question… a new “Joke with the Pope” digital campaign, encouraging people to “donate” a joke to support one of three causes ahead of Pope Francis’ historic U.S. visit.

Jefferson – Jackson dinners are disappearing from the Democratic arsenal of fund-raising.  (It’s worth noting that in some past epoch, the Jefferson – Jackson dinners in southern states were frequently paired with a third name — that of a bigtime political governor heavy-weight with huge stature in

I remember hearing George Carlin once refer to the news media as a bulletin board of the powerful.  I can’t help but think of that when I read over the tenor of this “Joseph Biden — Don’t run for President” story in the New York Times. Try this one for a second. Those supporters, in […]

Ralph Nader complains about the coverage of Donald Trump, and suggests Kasich should be in any Republican debate.

Disappointing to reference a “neo-nazi cult” in the headline.  Sure, I know… “Borman’s Ghost”, “The Underground Reich” — see the Dave Emory program for the latter and a blog post series for the former, but — precision is off. And here we go... But a British inques
