Eugene Robinson is a must-read on Michelle Obama

in his Washington Post column titled For someone who says she hates politics, Michelle Obama is a political powerhouse. Let me put it simply by starting with his final two paragraphs: Speakers tonight had no crowd to rouse, no applause to draw energy from, no way to gauge how their orations were being received. They…

I know it's George Conway. But really, you should read

his op ed in Washington Post titled Trump’s name should live in infamy. It is delicious. Let me end at the beginning, with the closing paragraph: Trump’s sanction must come at the polls, and beyond. For the sake of our constitutional republic, he must lose, and lose badly. Yet that should be just a start:…

strong op ed by Lt Col Alexander Vindman, (ret)

just up at the website of The Washington Post,  and titled Alexander Vindman: Coming forward ended my career. I still believe doing what’s right matters. Here is how he begins: After 21 years, six months and 10 days of active military service, I am now a civilian. I made the difficult decision to retire because…

Dana Milbank says Trump should play more golf.

Seriously. That’s the point of this Washington Post op ed today. There is a LOT of delicious satire in the piece, including a link to a piece in May by Andy Borowitz suggesting that Dr. Fauci wanted Trump to play MORE, not less, golf. But then Milbank gets semi-serious. He reminds us of some of…

Conservative columnist: 'This is what national decline looks like'

Before Donald Trump made the U.S. presidency less dignified than workaday gigs like assistant bovine inseminator, I posited that voting for him would be like willfully electing Caligula. Or maybe Michael Scott. Either way, I knew it would be fucking bad. But clearly I underestimated how gobsmackingly bad it would actually be. This may not…

Rubin Blasts NY Times for not Calling Trump a Racist

Jennifer Rubin gets a lot of flack here over the suspicion that she isn’t really on our side, she’s just against Trump, and will go back to screeching at us the way she screeches at him now. That’s possible, maybe even probable. But let’s not be so suspicious that we miss a few things. First…

Did Donald Trump commit voter fraud?

Okay, the title of this piece is clickbait. I know that. But consider this. Donald Trump changed his legal address from Trump Tower to Mar a Lago, and he voted absentee in Florida’s Republican primary. But here’s the problem: This story up this morning at the website of The Washington Post points out that Trump…

A MUST-READ from George Conway

went up this evening at The Washington Post.  It is on the website titled George Conway: Trump went ballistic at me on Twitter. Here’s why he reacts with such rage. It begins like this: Americans died from covid-19 at the rate of about one every 42 seconds during the past month. That ought to keep…

New info emerges explaining why Tillerson called Trump a 'f***ing moron'

The new book A Very Stable Genius by Washington Post reporters Philip Rucker and Carol Leonnig has some fresh context surrounding former Secretary of State Rex Tillerson’s famous “he’s a fucking moron” dis. Seems Tillerson made the comment following an unhinged Trump tirade during which the commander-in-queef disrespected the military (not by kneeling at a…

New book, 'Very Stable Genius,' contains smorgasbord of Trump stupidity

And here we go again. Another book revealing what an irredeemable idiot our pr*sident is — and, of course, the people who really should read it won’t. Because, by and large, they don’t read. The book, A Very Stable Genius, by Washington Post reporters Philip Rucker and Carol D. Leonnig, is chock-full of insanity and inanity. Just…

Media pushes 'Dems in disarray' over impeachment—again

Poised to pass two articles of impeachment in the full House this week, Democrats have remained extraordinarily united throughout the process while nearly half the country stands in favor of taking the drastic action of removing Donald Trump from office. Yet press coverage in recent days has suggested (surprise!) that Democrats are in a state of…

WaPo Has the Knives Out for Warren

Until recently, Warren and Buttigieg had avoided attacking each other, but lately that’s changed. Warren said Buttigieg needed to be more forthcoming about his consulting work with McKinsey. In response, Buttigieg said Warren should release more of her tax returns (she’s released 11 years’ worth) to show her work on behalf of corporations when she…

Fact-checking Democrats in the age of chronic Trump lies

At the outset of his presidency, several major news outlets eagerly and proudly announced that they were going to fact-check Donald Trump's every utterance and document all the misinformation he was spreading. To their credit, news organizations set aside considerable resources to dutifully unpack Trump's “falsehoods,” as the press preferred to call them. The unspoken…
