Oprah

The end of the midterm misery is finally upon us as Election Day arrives tomorrow. Many of the races remain uncomfortably close despite the wretched rabble running under the Republican banner. The GOP has gone all in on election deniers and culture warriors, and apparently they have some support among...

Since anti-Obama protesters donned three corner hats adorned with dangling tea bags,  the Republicans have proven, over and over, they are followers, not leaders. After some consultation, the so-called “grassroots” group removed the tea bags because of the sexual connotation of being called teabaggers. Hence the Tea Party. As it...

Donald Trump, the man with gold-plated bathroom fixtures and a 10,000 dollar portrait of himself bought with money donated to his corrupt and now-defunct charity, thinks that the 1.7 million [tax-free] dollars paid to his CFO, Allen Weisselberg, were a fringe benefit, or just Trump change. Anyone still buying into...

The Tin Lizzie was a Ford Model T car that ushered in prefabricated manufacturing, thereby featuring profits over craftsmanship. Although for the first time, the middle-class had real dreams of affording an automobile, the Tin eventually went bye-bye because it bowed to modernization. The current Tin Lizzie, Republican House member...

So I woke up this morning to discover Prince Philip had died. In the span of a few vertiginous moments, my emotions swung widely from indifference to mild interest and back to indifference. I went through the five stages of grieving 99-year-old men I didn’t know pretty quickly. I got to acceptance...

Because armed struggle in the actual 1776 to cancel a monarchy wasn’t enough for one right-wing think tank, the Heritage Foundation’s usual reactionary silliness now extends to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, apparently because of Biblical miscegeny. x Heritage Foundation mocked for defending British monarchy from American 'radical left”...

Oprah Winfrey’s query of the exiled Royals was a superfluous gesture to most black Americans. That was until she brought up the subject of the baby royal, Archie. By exposing what most black men and women around the world know, that racism exists from the commoners to literal Kings and...

Get out. From “cancel culture” to “can sell culture”, many skirmishes and pitched battles are yet ahead in conflict that seem to have less to do with territorial control and are more about subjugating people or at least keeping the streets safe. Even so, the bigger thing will likely be...

To be fair, practically everyone’s opinion about the royal family is worthless, because the royal family itself is a pointless anachronism. And now that it’s clearly both racist and pointless, the world is piling on. Enter Meghan McCain. Now, admittedly, I have mixed feelings about McCain. I tend to like...

As Meghan Markle and Prince Harry embrace life in California with 22-month-old son Archie and a second baby on the way, another chapter has officially closed with an Oprah interview on CBS. So much idiotic gossip mongering occurred, but the show was revelatory in terms of seeing how backward that thing called the monarchy is as...

Whatever you might think of David Frum, he does seem to have the number of the phenomenon called Trumpism especially as it is now trying to save itself before the retreat to the bunker. Like Trump’s tweets, diversion and distraction are the gonads in his bag of tricks. Diametric opposites and misdirection...

You may or may not know who Arthur Laffer is. Personally, I wish I didn’t. Suffice to say, if you shoved Larry Kudlow and Stephen Moore in a Vitamix with a cup of flaxseed and half a banana, you’d get a better economist than Laffer. If you want to know...

Mike Pence is sooooo cute! Did you catch him the other day, down in Georgia, stumping for Brian Kemp? Boy, after 2 ½ years if getting more and more insignificant in Trump’s shadow, he really let his insecurity flag fly high. He told the crowd, “Stacey Abrams has Barack Obama and Oprah Winfrey coming to...

With media mogul Oprah Winfrey reportedly considering a run for the Democratic presidential nomination and a large section of the Democratic establishment being at least interested in supporting her candidacy for the Democratic nomination, it’s time for me to talk about reasons why I wouldn’t support Oprah unless she wins...
