Robert Gibbs slammed on Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell AGAIN during presser

The absurdity of the answers Press Secretary Robert Gibbs is forced to deliver in defense of DADT (or rather, the President’s “helplessness” to do anything about the continuation of discharges on his watch), is pathetic.

Why President Obama hurts his own cause of addressing homophobia in the black community

Michael Steele, day 99: ‘I’ll give you empathy. Empathize right on your behind!’

Heh. At President Obama’s meeting with the heads of South American countries this morning, Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez stood, walked over to him, and presented him with a copy of “Open Veins of Latin America: Five Centuries of the Pillage of a Continent” by Uruguayan author Eduardo Galeano. The book,…

The classy racist voice of the GOP base: witness this Teabagger phone call

No surprise here from the GOP base. Blender Kel Munger of the Sacramento News & Review covered the teabaggers in that part of the world this week and has a great description of the event in the post “Revolt of the frightened, middle-aged white tea-baggers“: The stage was set up…

Angie Harmon Is The ADA Of Sadness

Angie Harmon wants you to know that based on conversations you didn’t know she had with people you haven’t met about things she didn’t say, she’s not racist. Angie Harmon is not afraid to come out and say she doesn’t like how President Obama is handling the job — but…
