Screen Grab -- Youtube

As the election draws nearer and the parties begin to really ramp up their campaign machines, the choice of which candidate to choose becomes clearer to most voters.

Remembering 9/11 with NBC’s Today Show

Kris Jenner on NBC's Today Show

Every news organization has had to make the snap decision on which story to cover.  The 24-hour news cycle has helped by making it possible for news outlets to cover the smallest, insignificant non-news stories all day, and night, and over and over and over again until you want to scream.  Despite the fact that [...]

Republican’s Racist Campaign Strategy Uncovered

Mitt Romney at NAACP Convention

The men and women of the Mitt Romney campaign are geniuses when it comes to political strategy.  So says the host and commentators of MSNBC’s “The Last Word,” (video below).  They are as brilliant as they are conniving.  To think, I was one of the foolhardy that actually believed the presumptive Republican Nominee, Mitt Romney, [...]

Have you ever been fired for doing your job wrong?  I am sure it happens everyday.  People are given instructions and expected to follow them.  If the instructions aren’t followed, they get fired.  With that in mind, the Supreme Court should be fired.

Accusations should never be bandied about without just cause.  A good example would be accusing a group of people of waging a war on women without any real proof.  No, the just thing to do is explore every possible explanation for an action and then, and only then, if no other conclusion can be found, [...]

I Can Admit When I am Wrong

7th Annual Common Sense Media Awards Honoring Bill Clinton - Arrivals

It takes a big man to admit when he is wrong, and I am a big man.  More so since working primarily at a desk for the past few years.  But I am wrong nevertheless.  I have always thought it would be the Republicans that would eventually figure out a way to eliminate the United [...]

And the Placating Continues

Remember high school?  Now that you are older, (I am assuming there are no high schoolers enjoying political satire websites, although I may be mistaken) can you recognize how many terrible decisions you made back then, trying to fit in?  I am sure one or two of you smoked to try and look cool or [...]

An outrage is an outrage, is an outrage.  Sometimes an event of tragic proportions has to happen in order for injustices to be brought to the surface.  Such a tragedy has recently happened in the senseless killing of Trayvon Martin. It is not every day that a young man is killed because of candy.  It [...]
