|For Xmas, Newsweek attacks fundamentalist Christians - by using the Bible!
Kurt Eichenwald of Newsweek has always been one of my favorite journalists because he is one of these rare types in the MSM who is willing to go after bad people tooth and nail. Usually it's about ...

One of the things I love about the journalist Kurt Eichenwald is he is never afraid to just grab conservatives by the throat and rip out their windpipes. And boy, while so many journalists are ...
|Newsweek slams "plastic patriots and faux flag wavers"
The MSM isn't always cowardly. Newsweek is out with a story about the republican "patriots" who are willing to hurt America if it feeds into their Obama derangement syndrome. It's aggressive, and ...
|Newsweek: Blacks feel more likely to be hurt by cops because they ARE more likely to be hurt by cops
My favorite writer, Kurt Eichenwald, is out with a piece over at Newsweek slamming the modern militarization of police departments. But it also goes a lot further, showing a linkage between the use ...

What an opportune day for Kurt Eichenwald at Vanity Fair to torch the politicians and commentators who analogize anything they disagree with to Hitler and the Nazis. As you might know from Laura ...
|I WANT Brewer to sign the "please discriminate" bill.
This bill is a nightmare, and no court would uphold it. As the millions of travel dollars redirect from Arizona, GOP lawmakers will make mad dashes to repeal. It will be a nationwide spectacle. ...
|Some in mainstream media called out bogus news reports about CBO as "lies"
The media fell all over themselves yesterday to mumble absurdities about the CBO report as it related to Obamacare. It has been documented here quite well - Chuck Todd et. al. seemed to not even ...
|Vanity Fair's Blockbuster Part 2 in Obamacare series: The truth!
Last week, Vanity Fair ran a devastating and brilliant piece ripping apart the Republican lies (yes, they called them lies) about Obamacare. Kurt Eichenwald, the contributing editor who wrote the ...

There's a fabulous piece online about the Republican's relentless and dishonest assault on Obamacare, detailing and refuting all of the lies that they have been telling to counter it. The headline ...

|CPAC: "The wackadoodle clown car."
Kurt Eichenwald at Vanity Fair (my favorite tweeter out there) apparently has started a blog on vf.com and has posted a takedown of CPAC. I don't think there will be anything in it that kossaks don'...
|Eichenwald of Vanity Fair: "Repeal the Second Amendment"
I mentioned before that my favorite person on twitter is Kurt Eichenwald, a contributing editor at Vanity Fair. He is the writer who put together the mammoth criticism of the modern GOP and poked ...
|I can't even begin to summarize the evil of this Pastor
Seriously, there is nothing to add. A preview:
|I support the 2nd Amendment
Not the BS, "let me take a few words out of this and proclaim it to be the 2nd Amendment." But the whole thing as written. The gun nuts today are out in force with their faux "concern" about these ...
|Vanity Fair: Bush declared Iraq war "willed by God."
I'm starting to feel like Kurt Eichenwald's publicist. But a piece of his from Vanity Fair went up online today about Bush and Blair trying to get everybody into Iraq, and it's really a kick in the ...
|Vanity Fair writer's BRUTAL takedown of the GOP: "They must be stopped"
I've mentioned before that one of my favorite people on twitter is Kurt Eichenwald, a writer at Vanity Fair. He's acerbic, aggressive and kind of fun. (if you want to follow him, and I'd highly ...
|Take Mitt at his word
I am more than happy to accept the idea that Mitt Romney had nothing to do with Bain after 1999. I am delighted to say that he made no decisions, did no work, didn't attend any meetings, yada yada ...
|FBI agent on R. Scott: "I recommended he be indicted"
OMIGOD.... One of my favorites on Twitter is ex-New York Times reporter Kurt Eichenwald. He does typical twitter blather for awhile and then he suddenly details some reporting he has to slam ...
|Ari Fleischer gets pwned!
A short diary... I don't know how to paste the images from twitter, but this one just came across my twitter feed and it cracked me up. Once again, Ari Fleischer looks like a moron:

The pro-hate vote in North Carolina is despicable, a throwback to the evil days of the past when "state's rights" was used to support every form of bigotry, ignorance and hatred that came down the ...
|I met some tea partiers today, and they seemed mentally unbalanced *UPDATE*
I know people object to the loose using of words like "mentally ill," but I don't know how else to describe it. This was not "wow, I disagree with their positions," this was absolute, off-the-wall, ...
|"They are willing to kill thousands of people" says my GOP friend about the GOP
I am one of the millions, at least indirectly. Whenever someone comes online to complain that Obamacare (yes, I think that term is a badge of honor) didn't go far enough, all I can think is, well, ...

We have now reachEd the point where the right wing is peddling furiously to portray TRayvon not only as a criminal but also as the aggressor in the encounter with zimmerman, which led to him being ...

Take the gold hawkers off of the table -- if Lear Capital didn't have paranoid and ignorant conservatives to sell its gold to, it wouldn't make enough to buy a cup of coffee. (also, see complaints ...

In the latest and perhaps most unbelievable attempt on women's health, the Virginia house has passed a bill requiring women who seek an abortion to undergo an "transvaginal ultrasound.'' Women will ...
|Komen in 2011: Planned Parenthood essential for poor. Said one week before hiring of right wing hack

Nancy Brinker, the CEO of SGK, is featured on a youtube video responding to all of the controversy about their decision to drop funding for PP.

I vowed a few days ago to stay away from DKos to take a break from the depressing torrent of news regarding Republican/conservative outrages. It was a good break, and I will extend it a couple of ...

***UPDATE***: I think people misunderstand what I am saying. I have no criticism of what Kossaks say; I have trouble reading about the evils of conservatives that are described here. I don't like to ...
|GOP, the photograph, and the enabling of al Qaeda
I have seen many, many despicable things emerge from the craw of the GOP hate machine over the last few years, but this one takes the cake. Maybe, they sneer, the killing of Bin Laden was a fraud. ...
|Their unseemly pettiness -- and ours.
I have been appalled watching the conservatives do everything they can to avoid giving any compliment to Obama over the military operation that led to Osama's death. It just fed into my belief that ...
|Trump: "Where's the death certificate?"
In reaction to the announcement that the Obama orchestrated the mission that led to the death of Osama Bin Laden, Donald Trump issued a statement:
|Time to expose Trump as the liar he has always been
I have known that Donald Trump is a buffoonish liar since the 1980's, and figured it out as a teenager who just liked to read newspapers. In October, 1987 (about October 15) Trump announced that he ...
|Repubs forced to vote on GOP plan -- AND FREAK OUT
Sometimes I really, really love being a Democrat. Today, the Dems in the House pulled what may have been the most delightful -- and instructive -- scam on the Rethugs (I will stop calling them that ...

Elsewhere on this site -- I will not link top it -- there is a debate unfolding between a guy who is an advocate for virtual child porn and incest, versus someone who finds him disgusting. The CP ...
|Call out the birthers, like Trump
It doesn't take a genius to understand that birtherism is all about racism. But now that real (?) people (the republican darling, trump) are going forward with this garbage, it is time to call them ...
|Voter fraud in Wisconsin!!
Not that there was any. But, as many of you have noticed over the years, whenever the thugs win an election, it's a mandate. (GW Bush loses the popular vote, 70,000 votes in Florida go uncounted ...

I am a former team member of Army Special Forces Operational Detachment-Alpha 585. I fought in Afghanistan, from the earliest days. I am currently a member of law enforcement. In other words, I am ...

|Newt Gingrich: Role model
Ok, this isn't much of a diary, but I thought everyone could use a good chuckle on such an intense day. So last night, I was in the living room talking with my wife about Newt's latest jaw-dropper --

In Wisconsin, Sen. Bob Jauch of the 14 has been one of the leading proponents of compromise with the Republicans. Of course, that is impossible to do when Scott "Everything I think must be right ...

I just read that your father, Joe Flom, passed away . A couple of weeks ago, you posted a ...

I have read the words in this headline on this site many times as an excuse for not voting. I have read the pontifications about how both sides are just represent a corporate kleptocracy, and it didn'
|Fish gotta swim, Palin's gotta lie.
I must admit, Sarah Palin has confused me. She speaks with such certainty about her repeated, checkable falsehoods. Despite my headline, I can't tell if she is lying, if she is so stupid she doesn't ...

I have never before written a diary in response to a diary (I usually just comment) but this time I thought I should, primarily because the attacks on him are unfair. My daughter loves Bieber, and ...

I slipped on some ice and fell down a bunch of stairs today, so I don't feel up to writing a full diary. But this story was too delicious to miss.

This will be a very short diary, but I just had to share this. So the first skit on Saturday Night Live last night was -- of course -- a joke about Bachmann not looking into the camera. Nothing ...
|Glenn Beck is going to get someone killed. UPDATE with threat
Maybe that's his point. Is there a way under the law -- or protests, or whatever -- to stop this lunatic? He's been going after Frances Fox Piven, a City of New York University professor, saying ...

|Palin and the Jews
Update: Sorry, I had to change the headline. No one is reading the diary and are only responding to the headline. On some levels, people have gone too far on the Palin thing. Without any further ...

There is a recommended diary up top that talks about basically the linguistics of politics, and how the Repubs frame their language better. Perhaps in thinking of that, we should both use the right ...

Now, hear me out on this. I don't mean the astroturf, k-street, "rile these people up so I can line my pockets" tea party. I mean the real one -- the anti-debt, anti-deficit, (okay, anti-obama) ...

I know, I know...we should really flush Joe Miller -- failed republican candidate for senator of alaska -- down the memory hole, as exhibit A of tea party extremism and temper-tantrumism. But this ...
