Up or down vote

Catching up on reading Balloon Juice, I saw that John Cole was thinking what I’ve been thinking: Democrats need to be saying the phrase “up or down vote” until they’re blue in the face. I’ve been amused all this past week, watching Rachel Maddow run a contest to see who…

Violent imagery at CPAC

I’ve been watching this CPAC stuff while my emotions swing between amusement and horror. Rachel Maddow’s coverage was awesome. I was laughing my ass off when she interviewed the Birchers about fluoride in the drinking water—they’re still trotting out the implication that the intent is mass sterilization—and I thought that…

Why the hypocrisy strategy works

I’ve been meaning to respond to M. LeBlanc’s post questioning the “hypocrisy strategy” since she wrote it, but it took awhile to get my thoughts together on it. The hypocrisy strategy in question is an attempt to undermine Republican credibility by showing how many Republican politicians are saying two things…

In NY for the 2009 Women’s Media Center Awards…

Sorry for being MIA in the pandasphere; I’ve been on the road for the last few days, first in New York to attend the Women’s Media Center Media Awards. [I returned to Durham last night and in a couple of hours and I head to Chicago to be a panelist…

Watch one progressive bus run over Rachel Maddow and the LGBT community

I don’t know how many of my readers surf around the general progressive blogosphere regularly, but you can get a taste of the blowback the LGBT community is receiving for deigning to ask why the Obama administration has been silent regarding his self-proclaimed “fierce advocate” role. Check out this diary…

Why you can’t really compare Fox News to news networks

This is something that’s more than a little disturbing, especially in light of the role that Fox News has played in painting the target on the back of a man that a devout right wing nut then went and murdered. It seems that rain or shine, in power or out,…

Is a Warren uninvite really impossible to contemplate?

Rachel Maddow covered the issue of Rick Warren banning “unrepentant homosexuals” from his church quite well last night. First, the passage from Saddlebacks’ web site: Finally, a word about being judgmental. It’s not judgmental to say that what the Bible calls a sin is a sin, that’s just telling the…

Rachel Maddow goes soft on anti-gay Huckabee

I’m starting to think that Rachel Maddow has an issue or professional discomfort with taking on publicly anti-gay figures on her show. It’s an oddity, given 1) she’s out and has a high-profile; and 2) her fellow MSNBC host, Keith Olbermann, has been extremely forceful as an ally on the…

Time is money

Got to love Rachel Maddow, for explaining that long lines at polling places are a poll tax. Having the time to take off to vote is a privilege of the middle and upper classes. Working class voters have the technical right to take the time to vote, but in reality…

Rachel Maddow explains the bailout

The one thing I will say is that John McCain’s opinions cannot be taken as resembling anything like the truth. Like Bush, he realizes that honest neocon politicking can’t get you elected. Bush would have denounced the bailouts if he were running, too. They have no relationship to telling the…
