Nothing like a good Christian upbringing to produce really well-rounded and well-balanced families. There’s something about these pics from the busted-up Hutaree Terrorist Militia that are just chilling and haunting. It’s something more than the faint suggestion of inbreeding. It’s all those crosses and cammies mixed up with banners and bandoliers. And little Aryans playing […]

If poor John McCain tries any harder to outflank his primary opponent, J.D. Hayworth on the right, he’s gonna wake up one in morning somewhere in the middle of Texas. After playing second fiddle to a leather-jacketed Sarah Palin at last weekend’s Arizona campaign events, the new and improved Senator McCain is now calling for […]
If you live outside the signal area of one of the five Pacifica Radio stations or if you can read the newspaper without moving your lips, you are hereby excused from reading further. But seeing how I gave up a couple of years my precious life to the rotting institution of “people-powered” radio, I feel […]
The latest installment on my Reporter War Stories blog is now posted. The night in 1990 when Daniel Ortega lost the elections in Nicaragua and all us genius reporters had to totally rewrite our stories at 5 in the morning. Check it out.
I was feeling pretty conflicted this weekend. Part of me really wanted to go witness the latest Sarah Palin freak show cum Tea Party out in Harry Reid’s hometown of Searchlight, Nevada. But having spent some time watching the rocks grow out in Searchlight over the years of my Vegas reporting and the thought of […]
This is 73 year old John McCain’s final battle. What an inglorious finale.
The hacks and hos at the American Enterprise Institute have decided to hack off David Frum. Free speech means no longer having a salary.
Hugo Chavez takes one more step closer to brazen dictatorship. The chief of the largest TV network in Venezuela is arrested for crime of speech.
Bring it on.
I’ve posted my latest entry on my Repoter War Stories blog: Waiting for Fidel — How Playboy Paid for My 57 Day Honeymoon. Check it out.
Who says Republicans don’t have a sense of humor? Even the artificially suntanned lobbyist and part-time House minority leader John Boehner shows off his total coolness on YouTube. Meanwhile, the Republican fringe, if there is a sort of thing, edges toward Weathermen mode. Pretty fucking far out, to quote the Veep.
What a moment of great national madness. The president signs the most important piece of domestic legislation in nearly a half century, benefiting millions of ordinary people, and half, a third, a fourth of the country goes absolutely bonkers. We are truly watching an historic moment. Not only the passage of the bill. Not only […]
What David Frum said. And Josh too.
I’m writing this from the Phoenix airport after spending a week with Arizona Republicans. I will make this brief as I have to board a plane and I’m seeing right now that the House Democrats have the votes in the bag for HCR. It’s a bittersweet victory as the legislation coming out is so much […]
It seems health care reform will now, in fact, be passed late this weekend. That’s historic. Too bad the cowardly Dems seem ready to use the oily “deem and pass” maneuver. It’s legal. It’s constitutional. It’s legit. But it’s sleazy. And when the Republicans used the same procedure, the Democrats rightly denounced it as such. […]
Just a few notes from sunny Phoenix. Good news for disaffected radical leftists on both coasts. Not only do housing costs continue to be deeply depressed out here in the Valley of the Sun but, as I learned today, Arizona is in the vanguard of the construction of socialism! Here’s your chance to take up […]
First there is a mountain , then there is no mountain, there there is. Looks like The Dennis Kucinich show is over – at least until 2012 when he runs for president again with no staff, no money and no strategic plan. Now Kucinich will be voting YES on the health care plan that 2 […]
I’m heading to Arizona tonight where I will spend the week reporting on the McCain-Hayworth primary. It should be illegal to get paid to cover this sort of thing. Hayworth just got himself into a jam by comparing gay marriage to having sex with a horse. And the moderate in the race, John McCain, is […]
Face it, y’all. California always lead the nation in everything. We’re not only cool. We’re also really smart. We’re SO smart that we’ve now gotten way ahead of the political curve. A new UCLA study reveals that one out of four fellows Californians have already canned their cruddy health insurance! We may like to surf […]
Apparently “21st Century Socialism” may soon not include 21st century technology. Not to speak of 18th century basic civil liberties. Some of y’all were ready to defend Hugo Chavez when he shut down opposition TV stations because, after all, they were just right-wing corporate fascist pro-coup mouthpieces. Now Chavez is toying with a new idea. […]
