Upside Down

© Joe Heller This explains why whenever Donald Trump opens his mouth, he upsets everything. Some people seem to think that Trump’s role as a wrecking ball is a good thing, that the US needs to be destroyed so it can be rebuilt. But can any of those people think of another country that is […]

Sexism

I’m really glad that the historic candidacy of Hillary Clinton is (finally) leading to some discussion about sexism in America. After all, many other countries have elected women leaders (over 70 women have become the leaders of their countries), but the US hasn’t ever nominated a woman even as the presidential candidate for a major […]

Behind the Headlines

We are being bombarded by “news” about the horserace that is the presidential election, and are pretty much sick of it. Unfortunately, this means that we are ignoring the real stories behind the headlines. I mention this because we are missing a potentially generous serving of irony. For example, the headlines are blaring the news […]

Serious State Department Breach!

Back in 1987, when Reagan was president, at the height of the cold war, top state department official Ronald Spiers (accidentally) leaked one of the government’s most sensitive documents (above top secret), which ended up in the hands of nearly every government in the world. The leaked document was a photo of the “National Intelligence […]

Schmoozegate!

© David Horsey I don’t get it. If Bill Clinton wanted to compromise the Benghazi investigation by having a sneaky private conversation with Attorney General Loretta Lynch, why would it happen in a public place? And after dozens of Republican investigations into Benghazi, why does anyone even listen to this noise anymore?

Hillary Clinton is a Progressive

Some people have called Hillary Clinton a Republican in Democrat’s clothing, but does that claim pass scrutiny? One of the arguments for this was that she was actually a Republican for part of the 60’s, but that was mostly before she was even old enough to vote. If there is some rule that once a […]

With Friends Like These, Who Needs Enemies?

The Hillary Clinton campaign wasted no time after Donald Trump became the presumptive nominee of the Republican party. She released an online campaign ad that is made up of video of other Republicans sharing their opinions of Trump. Republican politicians are in a tight spot, especially ones who are up for reelection this year. Nearly […]

Silver Lining?

According to Nate Silver, the Republicans now have a 73% chance of taking over the Senate (that’s a whopping 46 point lead). So Barack Obama will face a hostile Congress, including a Senate that probably won’t confirm any of his nominees. But in this video, Hillary Clinton (or at least, someone playing her) finds something […]

Secretary of Explaining Stuff?

While out campaigning this week, Obama made repeated references to the outstanding speech given by Bill Clinton at the Democratic convention. My favorite thing Obama said about Clinton: Somebody e-mailed me after his speech — they said, you need to appoint him secretary of explaining stuff … That was pretty good. I like that … […]

Whining Crybaby!!

© Jim Morin See also Jon Stewart weighing in on Republican protests against blaming Bush. Not to mention the fact that the top presidential scholars have just rated Bush the absolute worst president of the modern era, and the fifth worst president of all time.

What The Definition of “is” Is

OMG! Bill Clinton was right, and the times they are a changing. In a survey of 477 university students, only 20% of them consider oral-genital contact (e.g., a blow job) to be “sex”. The percentage of young people who consider sexual activity like oral sex to not be sex has been dropping ever since then-president […]

How Politics Really Works

Or more accurately, why politics doesn’t work. Ben Smith has an audio recording of a voicemail message left in March 2007 by Hillary Clinton for Norman Hsu, who was just convicted on campaign finance fraud charges. The effusive message includes the line “We’re going to win this campaign, Norman, because you singlehandedly are going to […]

In Your Face(book)

Jon Favreau, Obama’s chief speechwriter during the campaign, has gotten himself into trouble because of some photos that appeared on his Facebook page, showing him at a recent party playing with a life-sized cardboard cutout of Hillary Clinton (he’s the guy on the left in the photo, feeling up the statue). Another photo showed him dancing […]
