|Bernie, Hillary and the really really important future for our children, grandchildren....
Here's the thing. I love Bernie and have been supporting him for some time. But just because I love Bernie, will support/work for and vote for him does not mean I have to trash Hillary. This is ...
| Education, Testing Time, Amy Goodman, ……opining on why honest reporting and education matter.
Today on Democracy Now, Amy Goodman had an in depth discussion on education with a superintendent of a NY school district, a parent who is the head of her school’s parent teacher group. The ...
|Catharsis or where are Hawkeye Pierce and Trapper John clones cuz ........
Catharsis or where are Hawkeye Pierce and Trapper John clones cuz the Frank Burns' clones are everywhere! So as I am watching these 47 Senators, too stupid for their own good let alone the country�
|What the f*&^* is wrong with us??? (A rant)
This is a rant, based on something that happened today. Perhaps it is not diary material but this is the only community where I think this rant may resonate. That, sadly, in and of itself is not a ...
|My Patent Leather Shoes Scared Me
I started catholic school in 1955, age 10, 5th grade. I moved from the public school by my own request to my parents. Our church had opened three years earlier but my parents, unlike many in our ...
|Here's the deal.....
This is a comment I made on the main page. The diary was My Experience with an Alternative Charter School. To be clear, upfront and honest, I am pro public school, and quite ...
|I wrote and thanked Roger Simon
I don't always agree with Mr. Simon. But this morning, I applauded him. On Reliable Sources he was the only person with the integrity to call out violent rhetoric and violent imagery for what it is..
|I think everyone needs to read Trey Ellis NOW
There has been much yelling and screaming here for weeks now, and sadly too many here take the word of the television pundit class on everything. This is the same group of people who said over and ...
|Debate in CO ......sort of....well really a forum and no candidates there
Last night in a very red county in CO we had a forum for democratic voters. And we got a full house in attendance. The County dems had hoped we would get 30 or 40 people and, holy cow, we had at ...
|Boycott MSNBC and NBC and their tabloid reporters!!!!
Dammit! Dammit! What the hell is wrong with these two men (and I use the word loosely because they are more like to tabloid boys seeing who can get the "dirt", the gossip). The ...
|Chris Matthews you are a misogynistic pig and a total hypocrite.
So yesterday he is drooling over Mitt's wonderful speech. And yet before that, he was whining that religion should not be a part of this. Which the hell is it Chris???? Oh I forgot. Mitt is a ...
|Spin Tweety, Spin, you misogynistic wingnut....
I know "JUST DON'T WATCH". I am sure at least one kossack will remind me to change the channel. But sometimes, on cool dreary days, I cannot avert my eyes from the train ...
|George Will, Man Without a Soul and Brokaw Bias
So this diary really would have fit better on last night's WYFP but effing problems don't alway arrive on cue. I woke up to a miserable allergy attack. No headache or pain, just a ...
|Speaking of sexism........
So this morning, MSNBC has yet another "hot babe" newsreader, telling us all about the market. So besides "international super star" what's her name that Matthews and Scarborough drool over, now we ...
|As a woman, the TM especially Matthews insults and offends me
How freaking dare Matthews accuse Hillary of playing the gender card? Who the hell has been playing the gender card, the race card and even the religion card for the last two hundred years if not ...
|Seriously, how is Chris Matthews going to spin his hypocrisy if it is Hillary vs Rudy?
Chris, the hypocrite , Matthews has a problem. So does Chris, the misogynist , Matthews. I am curious as how Matthews is going to lie and spin his way through it all ...
|Twenty-three year old rich kids run dkos???? (SNARK)
And they're lunatics to boot? Well, this is all according to one of MSNBC's finest: Tucker Carlson To be honest, I have seen Markos and yes, he looks pretty young but A) I didn't think he was ...
|Did you all know that the economy is great? Were you all keeping it a secret?
I watched Tweety and his band of friendly centrists and conservatives today, and I watched Russert and his band of CNBC honeys plus Kramer yesterday. Guess what? The economy is really ...
|Tucker Carlson IS the epitome of elitist and a hypocrite to boot.
So he's there, trashing Hillary every other sentence, trying to use Obama to trash her, and at the same time, insulting Obama every chance he gets. He calls Hillary a "McGovern elitist." He ...
|Sometimes I am surprised that I am not a fascist!
I turned 62 this year, this month. Not really celebrating so no well wishes. I will wait until I am 65 and eligible for Medicare before I celebrate (healthcare premiums are a b*tch when you ...
|Has Chris Matthews been in a coma for the last 8 years? Or is he just a liar and phony?
Something is wrong with Matthews. Today he acts all bent out of shape when one of his guests implies he was less than fair when Gore was running the first time, as he is spewing angrily back at his ...
|A CALL OUT by state......YEA or NAY for those who supported or denied our right to free speech
Can we get posters here to call their senators on the carpet? YEA for the ones that refused to play the IOIYAR hypocrisy game. As much as I despised the way Coulter and the republicans ninnies at ...
|Chris Matthews is a phony and a liar and a hypocrite....
I know some of you may disagree since Matthews has been so forcefully anti-war...NOW But dammit, I cannot stand hypocrisy. And this man's blatant hypocrisy is sickening. His use of yellow ...
|Jon Stolz and Dante Zappala doing the job the cowardly press won't do
For those of us old enough, do you remember when you trusted the press to do their job? Long before The Daily Show , there was TWTWTW aka TW3, and Laugh-in . ...
|FYI....JENA case mentioned, surprisingly, on FOX
Normally, I never watch FOX. So tonight as I am channel surfing, going past FOX is fast but I actually heard the words, "The JENA 6" So I tuned in..... just for that story. It was on "Geraldo" ...
|Where have you gone, Mr. Robinson?
So, yesterday afternoon, I am getting ready to run an errand, had MSNBC on in the background as I gather things, and I hear Eugene Robinson's voice. So I stopped to watch. OK, so it was on the ...
|Thank you, Jon Soltz
Not only did this young man serve our country, in uniform, in a war, protecting our rights as citizens, fighting for the constitution he is continuing the battle for all of us. He is a part ...
|Can someone, maybe a lawyer, explain something.....
I understand that DA Niphong broke the law and his assumption of guilt on those boys was wrong. I understand also he has lost his right to practice law. What I don't understand is on the other side.
|Aha! Now I understand Tucker Carlson!
At last I have a clue into Tucker Carlson's anal retentive twerp personally. The guy was too severely potty trained and oh the problems it has caused! Today it all came out.... More snark for ...
|The Grieving Room: A Journey
Mother, Father, Best Friend, Cousin, Sister When I think of grieving, I think of these. My Mom died 36 years ago, yesterday. Not on August 26th. Thirty-six years ago on May 21st. But sometimes, ...
|Who woulda thunk it? A rant in shock and awe mode!
How can a racist, xenophobe, sexist screamer like Pat Buchanan be considered mainstream by his colleagues? How can anyone consider Chris Matthews even remotely liberal? How can a major media star, ...
|So, $168,000 salary is not enough to live on? Hmmmmmmmm.....
Maybe it's me. Maybe I am just too ignorant and stupid to understand just how these people get away with this public elitism and then say we, the liberals/progressives, are starting class warfare?
|Are progressives here really cowards? Are we afraid to stand up to bullies?
This will be short. I am becoming quite discouraged here. I am reading too many diaries that are allowing the bullies (Rove, the Republicans, Bush) to determine what we believe. A little more over ...
|Whose head will explode first?
WHEN the dems take back the white house, increase their majority in both houses, whose head will explain first? Tweety, Russert, Tucker or the boys at Fox? Seriously, I wonder what is going to ...
|Where have all the flowers gone?
So last night I was watching/listening to PBS rerun the Bill Moyers Journal with Fein and the other guy. After that, as a part of their fund raising week, Rocky Mountain PBS did the rerun of a ...
|Why the FISA vote should not have been a surprise!
Yes, I was upset and disappointed. Even angry! But surprised? NO WAY!! There are several reason why we should not be surprised. First and foremost, the views on democracy, at best, change slowly.
|Want to change the Party? The Congress? Government? Change the people first!
I was very distressed after reading Grannydoc's diary last night. The Day the Music Died My gut reaction was like that of many; anger, despair, and ...
|Media spin, lapdogs, frustration and rambling thoughts
This is NOT about Coutler. This IS ABOUT THE MEDIA. This is about the anger and frustration I constantly feel about the lapdog press and their garbage. This is about their SPIN, their lies. And ...
|MSNBC is worse than FOX and deserves our contempt and should be boycotted
It's not JUST Chris Matthews' total hypocrisy; or Morning Joe's total phony attempt at being "cool"; or Dan Abrams need to prove he can be as obnoxious and controversial as any wingnut while coming ...
|Do neocons even believe in democracy?
Do they even know what it is? Listening while cleaning house to Tucker and Jonah Goldberg discuss their love and admiration of Dick Cheney, I was stunned. Here they are both bragging about how ...
|Chris Matthews, High Anxiety and women
OK, so my favorite obsession as of late, Chris Matthews and his relationship with, to or about women, has reared its ugly head again. Listening to him drool over having Coulter on, jump at the ...
|An answer for Chris Matthews......
Since once again, Mr. Matthews is obsessing on Hillary, this time on the "Why wouldn't she answer my question about Scooter Libby," as well as getting Nader to play "Let's Trash Hillary"
|Matthews taken down by audience
Wow, Matthews vs Hillary.... and Hillary has the crowd with her, so much so that they took Matthews down for his crap. Matthews asked one of his fluff crap questions...with his smirk. "Should ...
|Democracy is hard.....really hard!
I love coming to dkos to read what others say. It gives me hope. There are so many bright, well spoken (written) folks here of all ages and genders. I hope some of the people here, especially ...
|Souless twits who work for the MSM
Chris Matthews is obsessed with hating Hillary. That is a no brainer. It's not about disagreeing with her; he simply dislikes her. Andrea Mitchell shocked me as she actually debated the twit aka ...
|Politicians must be smart enough, ambitious enough and
able to plan and calculate. And yet, Hillary, a woman, is constantly trashed by neocons and sadly, by many here, for being ambitious and calculating. Well, duh. Any politician with a few brain ...
|Confused or am I living on a different planet?
Of course, like most, I am angry at the war, at the bogus reasons we are there; at the faux prez, "the decider" who got us there; at the lack of health care; at indecent, immoral wages as a result ...
|Thank you, Jonathan Alter (re: the judging of the Edwards family from some from the right)!
I read Jonathan Alter's column today in Newsweek (on line) and also saw him twice on MSNBC. He spoke out about the so called issue of Elizabeth Edward's decision about how to deal with the ...
