This evening, on MSNBC’s Meet The Press Daily, a pundit—or maybe it was a strategist, or perhaps it was a consultant, or an advisor, or a contributor, or whatever other fancy title news channels give to the dozens of mouths they pay to gaze at their own navels—was attempting to spin Jon Ossoff’s loss in Georgia’s 6th district yesterday as a positive by declaring that Ossoff’s close campaign forced the GOP to spend more money to win that seat than they have in any other congressional election in history. That was a stupid statement. Here’s why. Imagine an Atlanta Falcon’s fan saying on theRead More →

  In 2011, Representative Gabby Giffords was shot in the head during a public appearance in Tucson, Arizona. The day after the shooting, Pamela Gellar wrote this on Breitbart (I won’t link to that shit-hole, but just put the quote into the Google thingy and it’ll take you where you need to go for a citation): When Arizona Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords was shot in the head and six others were killed Saturday morning by a gunman Jared Loughner, the left wing smear machine went into high gear. So, today, while right-wingers were busy flooding social media with “outrage” that anyone might treat the shooting ofRead More →

  “Do you like spy fiction?” This was the burning question Sen. Tom Cotton (F*–Arkansas) had for Attorney General Jeffrey Beauregard Sessions during Sessions’ testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee regarding the trump campaign/administration’s probably collusion with Russia in order to steal an election. You see, Cotton was pulling a funny, by insinuating that the accusations being levied against trump, his fluffers, and anyone else connected to his administration are even more fantastically unbelievable than the plots of zany spy movies starring characters like Jason Bourne and James Bond. Or, some other people might argue that Tom Cotton was feeling out Sessions’ willingness to bypassRead More →

  “There are individuals who are so toxic that their presence threatens us all. They self-identify by their *conduct.* And we cannot protect ourselves from monsters by calling them by another name.” — Andrew Vachss   June 12, 2016 — one year ago today. In his final act as a member of the human race, a deeply disturbed version of George Zimmerman (Yes…I said it) fatally attacks an Orlando LGBT nightclub on Latino Night, achieving an historic body count using a military assault rifle that he recently purchased as effortlessly as a pack of cigarettes.  And until the very moment he pulled the trigger heRead More →

  To whom do national political appointees owe their allegiance: the people who appoint them, or the American people? Does their oath ask them to protect and defend the president, or the citizens?   Both NSA Director Mike Rogers and National Intelligence Director Dan Coats today refused to answer questions posed to them by the Senate committee tasked with their oversight. Both Rogers and Coats claimed that the reason for them refusing to answer questions from the Oversight Committee was that they didn’t feel answering the questions were appropriate. When pressed by numerous members of the Oversight Committee to clarify whether the information they wereRead More →

  Today has been a flurry of political punditry as analysts enamored with the sound of their own brilliance swamp the cable news channels to chat incessantly about tomorrow’s testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee by spurned FBI Director James Comey. As sad as it is to state, there are lefties out there in Political Spectator Land who have convinced themselves that tomorrow’s testimony is going to end with video of donald trump being led out of the White House in handcuffs. I hate to be the one to break this to any of those lefties who might have stumbled upon this page by accidentRead More →
