Monday, June 2, 2008 23:05 EDT

In a pure coincidence that is nonetheless pretty damn funny, the same day I put up a satirical bleg asking for the NY Times or some similar magazine to profile me, I got a request from the LA Times to do their week-long Dust Up column. It’s one of those back-and-forth things, and the topic is feminism and politics.

You Got Served

Powerline: I think there are two principal reasons for Obama’s omission of military service from the commencement address. First, in the guise of praising public service, Obama sings a song of himself. His work as a “community organizer” in Chicago is more praiseworthy, in Obama’s eyes, than work for profit-making…

Military service is on Bill Kristol’s mind today. It is, as you’d expect, wonderfully asinine. There’s another part of the op-ed that leapt out at me, though – we already know Barack Obama hates the military, being a terrorist and a Democrat and all. But Bill Kristol engages in my…


Ralph Reed: McCain should keep his fundie meetings on the DL

As I’ve mentioned before, politicians who court endorsements from religious leaders do so at their own peril, because you never know kind of batsh*t politically incorrect statements or sermons will come back to haunt the politician trying to rope in more people of faith at the polls. Look at Obama…
