Scott McClellan thought he was all cool or something this week, when he was all over cable TV promoting his groundbreaking book, What Happened. McClellan may even get to testify before congress based on the not-so-stunning revelation that the Bush administration did some really fucked up shit. Sorry, I sound bitter, but that bastard stole […]


The blogosphere and mainstream media finally caught on to what Anthony Bourdain has been saying for years: Rachael Ray is a terrorist. News broke yesterday that blogger Michelle Malkin was considering a boycott Ray-endorsed Dunkin Donuts because the culinarily-challenged Ray wears what Malkin labels a keffiyah, which apparently “terrorists” use as “anti-Israel” code. First of […]


Melinda Henneberger, a consistently thoughtful member of Slate’s XX Factor blog, counters the Dahlia Lithwick article on election fraud which I wrote about yesterday. Henneberger is nicer than I am, but shares similar criticisms. An excerpt: On the electoral front, Dahlia, your point about sagging voter confidence being self-fulfilling is dead right. But do we […]


What’s almost as dumb as invoking the assassination of a Civil Rights leader when you’re losing to a candidate that happens to be black?

It’s something that has occurred to me before, but when I mentioned it to someone knowledgable on politics, they said it could never work. Well, maybe it can: As Hillary Rodham […]


As reported yesterday, Chelsea FC lost to Man U in the Champions’ League Final on Wednesday. John Terry, center back defender, someone who I’ve never seen take a penalty in my years of watching Chelsea play, missed what would have been the clinching goal, slipping as he kicked it. Many wondered why Terry was sent up to […]


While I don’t agree with everything in it, there is a fascinating article posted on the Root today about the politics of rap music. In the article, which is actually an excerpt from his new book All About the Beat: Why Hip-Hop Can’t Save Black America, John McWhorter takes on primarily “underground” rap (you know, […]


A crushing loss for me and my fellow Chelsea supporters yesterday, going down on penalties 6-5. While some may argue it was John Terry’s blown penalty that would have won it, you can’t blame him too much because he kept out a goal earlier. However, Didier Drogba, who has bitched all season after the firing […]
