‘Ed Show’ helps find home for Rex, the ‘Republican-hating’ dog

On Thursday, MSNBC’s The Ed Show featured Rex, a stray beagle who bays and howls whenever he hears Republicans speaking. Blogs and media outlets from Mediaite to Glenn Beck’s The Blaze featured stories about the “Republican-Hating” pup, although host Ed Schultz assures us that Rex doesn’t “hate” Republicans, but is…

Beck calls Gingrich a stealth progressive, his tea party supporters racists

Glenn Beck and Newt Gingrich had a tense head-to-head earlier this week. The two sparred on multiple topics, but the final straw for Beck was apparently when he asked Gingrich to name his favorite president. Gingrich answered Theodore Roosevelt, and as a result, Beck has decreed that Gingrich is a…

Beck: ‘The violent left is coming to kill, to bankrupt, to destroy’

Not to be outdone by Bryan Fischer’s eye-brow raising statements, Glenn Beck made certain to produce his own headlines at the Voters Value Summit Saturday afternoon. In his speech, the former Fox News host said, “Hate is on a scale and is growing at a planetary scale of unprecedented size,”…

Beck’s $5,697 Israel trip doesn’t include tickets to the main event

For only $5,697 you can go with Glenn Beck to Israel, but don’t expect to actually attend his rally for that price. The Fox News host announced Friday the first of two travel agencies that will be providing tours to his August 24 “Restoring Courage” rally at the Southern Wall…

Friday Genius Ten “Obama’s Knee Is A Citizen*” Edition

*Joke attributed to a Facebook friend. So, this is perhaps the greatest thing that happened all week, and that’s in a week when Glenn Beck shut down his show. Jack Cashill claimed that this photo of Obama with his grandparents was a fake one: And that this much fuzzier one…

Why Mormoms are hated

Jamelle Bouie takes on the question of why Mitt Romney still seems to be getting a hit for being a Mormon with evangelical voters, who are threatened by Mormons. Evangelical hostility toward Mormons isn’t as widespread as it was a decade ago — a result, in part, of coalition politics…

Labor and feminism really don’t belong in different silos

Update: Some useful and quick reading here. Seriously, it’s like a paragraph. While I said Friday that I didn’t have much to add to the discussion about Wisconsin, obviously all things are subject to change. I’ve been watching the right wing reaction to the protests, and it’s been fascinating to…

Well, at least you can enjoy the flicker of panic in Hannity’s eyes

Via Digby, this video is just so awesome: I think my favorite is how some conservatives have decided that a “clever” dodge when challenged about their beliefs on Obama’s religion is to say that his religion is “liberalism”. Which is a way of saying, “Look, I think he’s a Muslim,…

Putting my money on paranoid hysteria

It’ll be interesting seeing how this battle plays out. As Tom Tomorrow’s cartoon today suggests, the only real consistent line throughout conservative reaction to the Egyptian protests has been a need to be loud and insistent that this is all about America without doing anything so quaint as educating yourself…

Birtherism runs into a couple of speed bumps

I could write some about how the GOP is trying to use anti-choice nonsense to redefine rape so that simply saying “no” or being legally unable to consent isn’t enough, but it’s Friday, and I’m in a good mood and I don’t want to depress myself. So, instead I’m going…
