BREAKING: DNC Chair is Literally a Partisan Hack in Sore Need of A Dictionary

Literally. Raising the rhetorical stakes around local battles over voting laws, DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz yesterday compared Republican efforts to tighten access to the polls to notorious segregation-era Jim Crow laws. And what Wasserman-Schultz said (PDF link): ..now you have the Republicans, who want to literally drag us all the way back to Jim Crow laws and […]

MD's Cardin to VP Biden: Kill Medicare Reform and Our Senate Careers, Too.

It’s not every day you see a handful of Senators try to demagogue themselves right out of office, but today appears to be that day. Sen. Benjamin L. Cardin was one of five Senate Democrats — all of whom are up for reelection next year — to sign a letter to Vice President Joe Biden […]

Why #WeinerGate Ticks Me Off

I admit, when the #WeinerGate story (see Stacy McCain or Big Government for full *ahem* coverage) first broke over the Memorial Day weekend, it amused the heck out of me. It had all the elements of funny: an arrogant, self-important politician, hubris, an underwear-clad crotch. What’s not to laugh about there? However, the more the […]

It is an article of faith that the Republicans are the Party of the Rich Lobbyist, but that turns out not to be so much the truth. Open Secrets took a look at who got the most lobbyist cash over the two-year period of 2009-2010 and, let’s just the if Michael Buffer has announced the […]

Sooper Genius Anthony Weiner's Path to Electoral Victory: Sell Republican Books!

I’m going to do something a bit daring today and write a post about Anthony Weiner that doesn’t involve his crotch. Last week, he laid out the Democrats’ plan to end the Republican majority in the House. It is, I admit, a clever plan. His idea is to use the Republican plans to save Medicare […]

If I had been in charge of the RNC’s fast response team today, I would have had them all over this tweet sent by Hari Sevugan, national press secretary for the Democratic National Committee. The Democratic plan is to reduce costs to strengthen Medicare. The Rplcn plan touted by @CantorPress and @timpawlenty is one to […]

If you hear a deafening “BOI-OI-OING” coming from every point in the known universe at the same time, please don’t worry. It’s just our reality rebounding from the weight of the irony former President Bill Clinton dumped into it on Friday. Bill Clinton doesn’t like all the misinformation and rumors floating on the Internet. And […]

If I hadn’t seen this at The Hill, I would have sworn it came straight from The Onion. The Obama administration has floated a transportation authorization bill that would require the study and implementation of a plan to tax automobile drivers based on how many miles they drive. The plan is a part of the […]

Fun With Bad Polls (Or, Why Won't Those Wicked Republicans Compromise?)

Ezra Klein, wunderkind of the Washington Post, believes he has the goods on Republicans. His “gotcha” comes in the form of a recent NBC/Wall Street Journal poll on the matter of which party should compromise in order to avoid a government shutdown and all its attendant apocalyptic events. I’ll not recreate Klein’s argument, but I’ll […]

If you are anything like me, you hate sobriety check points — those blights on weekend and holiday traveling where police officers commandeer an entire highway, slow all traffic to a near-standstill, and lecture each and every driver about the dangers of drunk driving all under the guise of ridding our roads of drunk drivers.
