Patrick Healy of the New York Times was just on MSNBC talking possible VP picks for both candidates. I was busy just trying to figure out who the fuck Tim Kaine is, and why he gives his most clear position on a VP candidacy in Spanish. In the midst of all of that, Healy had […]


While I am certain that some of you may think I’m just lying about being on You Are Here, the fantastic Public Affairs show on Sunday mornings on http://www.wers.org and 88.9 WERS Music for the Independent Mind (Damn it feels good to plug), I now have proof that I am in fact some what legitimate.

That’s just true


We’ve passed the 20,000 mark. At this point I feel the obligation to say that for anyone who think Celebrity drug addicts only think about themselves and that professionally athletes are pampered brats, I say, the hell with you.

The NY Times is always center stage on Sunday. Their Op-eds are renowned as perhaps the prestigious in the country, and have brought their columnists near celebrity status.

Slate Editor Emily Bazelon has ruled the front page with many smug, neurotic, self-centered, articles about family life, the kind of family life that is unrecognizeable to most people. Her […]


Jason Whitlock, notably a former guest on ESPN’s The Sports Reporters, has a front page story on FoxSports.com completely trashing NBC’s line up for Football Night in America, basically the Sunday night game, and a wrap-up of the day in the league. Whitlock has been controversial figure in the past for his remarks about Sean […]


Obama is up by about 8 points right now nationally. However, he has not been doing well amongst his base, due to his vote in favor of FISA (despite his vote for the amendments to take away telecom immunity), his statements about the death penalty, gun laws…anything that has made him look centrist.
