Sometimes a good idea is a good idea. Oliver Willis, one of Media Matters pet bloggers, has decided that the Democrats’ problem is image. He figures they need rebranding. Well, okay.

Today, Nicholas Kristof, writing in the New York Times violates a writing dictum: write about what you know. His op-ed concerns the “Left Behind” series of books and how they portray the eventual end of non-Christians. His mendacity only starts with the first paragraph and snowballs from there. It is, perhaps, the most egregious piece […]

John Donovan has a slide show that documents the atrocities our forces have thus far found in Fallujah. It’s pretty detailed and there are plenty of photographs. (hat tip: INDC Journal)

Drew Barrymore, Lucy Liu, and Cameron “If you don’t vote, you could be raped” Diaz? Ptui! Here are some real Charlie’s Angels. There’s a heck of a story about the medic and physician soldiers who treat our troops every day. I think that we don’t often tell their stories enough. Go read this one. (hat […]

Turducken. Why? Is not a turkey enough? Well, okay. Maybe you could convince me that a turkey’s not quite enough fowl meat for you so sure, we could stuff a duck into a turkey. Who wouldn’t have their carnivorous urges sated by that? A lot of people, apparently. So, the answer seems to be to […]

We're Down Four Wackos!

The Watchers Council is now short Four Right Wing Wackos, since their Chief Wacko has opted to be a tool of the proletariat-oppressing military-industrial complex. I can only hope that the vast millions they pay him can patch the dark spot in his soul caused by leaving the Council. But you could fill in the […]

Glenn Reynolds has a heck of an idea on his site. Vaclav Havel for UN Secretary General You’d better believe I’d support him. He’s nearly everything we could want to head and reform the UN.

Are you in the DC area and a blogger? What? You are? Then you just might be interested in La Shawn Barber’s DC meet-up idea. I, personally, am hoping this happens and a few bloggers I’ve really wanted to meet can make it. It would be a great time.

Dean Esmay, as usual, sees a good idea and makes it better. Activist Walter Lippmann has decided we didn’t give enough sympathy to Fidel Castro when he fell and injured his knee. Lippmann set up an e-mail account where we all could send our best wishes. Dean’s turned it into a contest. The person who […]

CBS is reporting what a lot of folks suspected would happen sooner rather (HA!) than later anyhow. Dan Rather is retiring as CBS news anchor and managin editor of the network’s Evening News program. I expect that the right side of the blogosphere will be touting this as a victory, but I ain’t seeing it. […]
