|Does this mean Buckley is going join us on the Dark side?
What next? Will Christopher be writing articles for dkos? And would a front pager of the Huffingtonpost be canned if they went in the tank for a republican? Oh, no, that's right. They allow OTHER ...
|Trivial? Yes, but damned important. Strap in your baby, Palins
It's a throw away line in an article about how Palin uses her family as a political prop. Of course that's the impression I got, that the woman uses them as props first and foremost. That wasn't ...
|The Constant Campaign Factor
I haven't read all of Scott McClellen's book, but I know that one of the main points he believes is wrong with the Bush is that the president runs his administration in constant campaign mode. It's ...
|Matthews is an utter failure
I keep waiting for someone to point this out--it's so obvious. Have I missed it? Has anyone else, like maybe a real journalist--mentioned this niggly little point? I've always thought of Matthews ...
|No, really. We don't talk like that when we're grown ups.
Way back in the dawn of time when I was 22, hanging with my husband-to-be, we got into an argument. I walked away from him into another room, but it was to stop myself, not show him I could leave ...
|the crazy factor isn't factored in
Does any country deal well with mental illness crises? Any good systems in place, anywhere? Because it's sure as hell not happening here--at least not for some people I know who are suffering. I'...
|Huckabee Showed CRAAZEE Side on AIDS question.
The good thing is that I found this article headlined on the fairly right-wing Breitbart service and the tone is a subdued WTF? (it's an AP article) ...
|Finally someone's asking: National Guard???
I avoid the MSM. THe last time I paid close attention was during Katrina. So I tuned in today to find out about the latest natural disaster And after a day of watching, at last. Someone's asking. ...
|Long After McCarthy--and dkossack help In Boston?
This is one of those personal diaries that might get deleted because it's not political. On the other hand, I can make it political without a lot of effort. I'm going to go to the bedside of an old ...
|when will it bite us all? with a poll!
4 am I discovered someone left the tv on (no energy concerns here, eh?) and for a couple of minutes I watched. It was NASCAR, followed by a commercial for Hummer and then a news update of a local ...
|Lieberman Writes Letters
Every few months I write to my senator asking him to do what he can to end the unwinnable war in Iraq. He always answers promptly and courteously. This time I wrote to him pointing out that the ...
|quotes on war
I hate with a murderous hatred those men who, having lived their youth, would send into war other youth, not lived, unfulfilled, to fight and die for them; the pride and cowardice of ...
|Over-reaction in CT. felony charges in Flour Terror
If it hadn't happened in my part of the world, I would have laughed myself silly. But honestly, what are those feds thinking, charging these people? It would be one thing if the two flour ...
|GBCW, but not dkos. I mean the reality of refugees
A couple of weeks ago I realized I was crispy fried. I'd been teaching for more than ten years. I've learned how to count to ten in a bunch of languages. Sometimes I think I've heard enough stories ...
|An advertising backlash? w/poll
Can we be responsible for silencing discussion? It's a real question because I have no idea. But I have taken to writing the letters to sponsors of shows like Bill O's and lately I've been thinking ...
|"Bush rips Democratic Lawmakers"
Good God almighty. There it is, headline news on all sorts of websites. AP, Yahoo, front page news. And the article itself is PURE laziness, just Bush's words transcribed with no analysis, ...
|Joel A gets it right: always time for doubt
Joel Achenbach and Gene Weingarten are the occasional voices of sanity in my life. Every Sunday I read their columns and I frequently want to wave the thing in everyone's face to make sure they read ...
|Hyatt says no to m/m romance writer
Every now and then Romance Writer Land has to stretch and refit itself around what constitutes Romance. Heck the fact that the fastest growing sub-genres are erotica and inspirational tells it all. ...
|Put down the cell phone or no apples for you
Uh oh. So the theory that cell phone radiation is screwing up the bees' sense of direction ...
|sympathy for the devil's supporters
I love Gene Weingarten's articles. This one made me laugh, but, yo, it's a bad idea ...
|Ann sends me Bush's Valentine Message
I didn't see it, I didn't listen, but my pal Ann did and here's what she wrote. YES, HE REALLY SAID THAT. TODAY. G.W. Bush gave a press conference today and (at ...
