Yes Bill O’Reilly, You Have Lost The Country

Charles Blow has nice opinion piece in NYT, below. Rush: "we're outnumbered...we've lost the country". O'Reilly: "it's not a traditional America anymore." My comment: All true. You have lost the country. You lost handily with young people, women, latinos, blacks, asians, gays...and, yes, white males who you can't convince to hate or fear all those other groups. ...

How much will we take?

Really? Have we really become a country that stands for a party and a candidate that so openly create complete fabrications and then robocall to spread these lies? Does anyone remember when the country felt that Nixon's actions were a blight on our beloved democracy? This shit is 1000 times worse. And we just accept it, ...

Either they have not heard them, or they are being intellectually dishonest. The president did not suggest people did ...

Todd Akin – What He Means By Legitimate

What he is referring to is something different, but equally disgusting. The religious right has embraced a junk science notion that women's bodies simply are not capable of pregnancy during forcible ...

Comfort with Dishonesty

More than any differences in policy or ideology, the thing that most consistently drives me away from the Republican Party is it's repeatedly apparent level of comfort with complete and utter dishonesty. To cut up the audio of the speech like this, re-paste the pieces together, and completely changed the meaning, is to me reprehensible ...
