Obama Will Invade Your Clubs And Ignore Your Women

By Jesse Taylor

Karl Rove, on Barack Obama:

Even if you never met him, you know this guy. He’s the guy at the country club with the beautiful date, holding a martini and a cigarette that stands against the wall and makes snide comments about everyone who passes by.

So, let me get this straight. The bad thing about Barack Obama is that he’ll go to a place full of uptight, snobbish pricks and alienate himself from them by mocking them. And he’s with a hot woman.

…Thank you?

Nope, really is misogyny

By Amanda Marcotte

Apparently, “moral” refusal laws extend to EMT workers, who are allowed to refuse to give women who are in emergency situations rides to the hospital if they have reason to believe that the doctor will do an emergency termination to save a woman’s life. I continue to be annoyed at the people who think this debate is about some well-meaning Christians who don’t want to hurt anyone but just don’t want to be party to…


I’m Taking My Ball And Going Home

By Jesse Taylor

And home, by the way, is three blocks over. We have a pool. And a barbeque. We have a barbeque on the pool. And a pool table. Also on the pool. And like eight TVs. Eight-eighteen TVs. I’m going now. And don’t you dare come to my house at 825…


The Bomb Shit Doctrine

By Jesse Taylor

It seems as if the basic neocon doctrine towards Iran is that it’s foolish to try anything more complex than bombing them, lest we get bombed first. Of course, if we bomb them, then they won’t bomb us back, because they’ll be double scared of bombing. But if we don’t…


Manhug McMaverick Rides Again

By Jesse Taylor

Not one, but two articles in which Obama is targeted, and McCain is given a pass despite his gross inconsistency on the exact matter at hand. First, Obama…


NYT Mag interviews Charlie Crist: he hasn’t found ‘the right one’ for him

By pams

Ever since Florida Governor Charlie Crist helped ace Florida for John McCain, the rumors have been swirling that the tanned, dapper very single Crist is on the short list for VP. Unfortunately for Crist, there were already more rampant rumors already out there about his allegedly selectively padlocked closet door.…


Sanka-Sipping Liberal Elitists

By Jesse Taylor

The fact that everything is more expensive is forcing people to forgo their lattes. How will we identify our sneering elite? (Well, besides the sneers.) Whenever there’s a sharp rise in living costs like this, you can bet there will be a flood of rich little poor kids harangues to…


I Will Give Credence To Anything, Because I’m A Real ‘Murkin

By Jesse Taylor

Maybe I missed something spending three years toiling away in the salt mines of Ohio (I was miner of the month in September 2007!), but was there a point at which dictators and terrorists became credible communicators of their own intent and rationale? It’s understandable why right-wingers run to bullshit…


“Opt-Out” still a fantasy peddled in the male-owned press

By Amanda Marcotte

Mythago sent me an article from the WSJ that has almost the proper mournful tone in presenting the facts that the well-groomed, professional middle class of women are not actually giving it all up to be trophy wives in the numbers suggested by hopeful trend writers in the past few…


What Obama should have said

By auguste

“I salute the efforts that House Democrats have made in reaching across the aisle to restore our Constitution, but I have repeatedly said that I would support a filibuster on any FISA bill which included retroactive immunity, and I will. I will work with Senate colleagues to ensure that the…
