Even as Dick Armey’s dick army continues to do the disruptive dirty work of its corporate-funded organizers (an onion Rachel Maddow has ably peeled for public view), even as its footsoldiers continue to spout fear-drenched talk-radio-esque bullshit about euthanasia, baby killing, and the evil plans of that Fascist Socialist Muslim Negro in the White House Continue reading →

And now, in the “surely too strange to be true” category… (Or perhaps the “even a stopped clock” category?…) Hat tip to the site “Political Irony,” which clued me in to this piece from Esquire, surveying the opinions of several white supremacist and neo-Nazi leaders. Apparently voting for McCain is something most of them just Continue reading →

Looking around, Friday was a day of curiously juxtaposed ups and downs, as on the one hand there was the pleasant schadenfreude of seeing the wheels continue to come off not only John McCain’s campaign but those of other desperate Republicans as well, while on the other hand we all mourned the passing of the Continue reading →

Tonight was the fourth and final debate of this electoral season (third between the presidential contenders), and McCain went into it a very long way from victory.

Tonight’s second presidential debate is being billed as a “town hall” format. But here are the rules: Tuesday’s match-up at Belmont University in Nashville, Tenn., will be moderated by NBC’s Tom Brokaw, with the questions to be culled from a group of 100 to 150 uncommitted likely voters in the audience and another one-third to Continue reading →
