Much like with the election of Barack Obama, after the Derek Chauvin conviction, America was quick to congratulate itself. The fallacy of a post-racial America turned out to be as foolish as the idea of a post-racial justice system. I can still see the self-congratulatory smiles from my white colleagues...

I am overjoyed that Joe Biden won the presidency, but am also aware of the serious damage presented by the Republicans potentially controlling the Senate, giving them a major blocking tool. We all know this.  The key to understanding the Republican Party, and its serious threat to the nation, is that they...

Yes, Donald Trump is a breathtaking, dumpster fire of a President.  And I could spend paragraphs recounting all of the incompetent, unbalanced and embarrassing things that he does. He is a real and present danger to the country, and like one that we have not seen in memory. But ....

Bull shit: Sen. Joni Ernst (R-Iowa) says she doesn’t think the Supreme Court will overturn its landmark 1973 Roe v. Wade abortion rights ruling, even though she signed a brief urging the court to do so earlier this year. “I think the likelihood of Roe v. Wade being overturned is...

I know that focusing on just one portion of an interview that was actually a wire-to-wire cavalcade of fucknuttery may not be fair. I’m taking this clip out of context — the context being that it floats on a roiling ocean of crazy and is in no way the full measure...

From The New York Times: As Representative Doug Collins went booth to booth at a recent Republican jamboree in northeast Georgia’s Rabun County, he was a hero, not an insurgent. No one knocked him for splitting the party with his bid against the state’s junior senator, Kelly Loeffler, who is...

Expanding our voting-by-mail procedures is an absolute imperative and a moral no-brainer in the midst of a national pandemic.  I also am completely unsurprised that President Trump and federal and state Republican leaders are increasingly not just opposing such a common-sense measure, but demonizing it and falsely associating it with...

The government is a good boogeyman. But understand what it means because it is the confusion that the plutocracy wants. The government is “we the people” which means if the government is the problem then we are the problem. That simply isn't true. It is them, not Government x x...

Last winter, CNN for weeks stood by its extraordinary and inexplicable decision to hire Sarah Isgur Flores, a career Republican Party operative with absolutely no journalism experience, to be the network’s political editor.

How do you solve a problem like Sean Duffy? The former Republican congressman, who was hired by CNN to blindly defend Donald Trump while the impeachment process unfolds, is creating problems for the network by constantly fabricating facts and spreading reckless and dangerous conspiracy theories.

Adopting a warped view of the Ukraine collusion scandal that's engulfing Donald Trump's presidency, The New York Times seems to think that it's Democrats who are caught in a “tricky” political position.
