Via NRO, Senator Lamar Alexander (R-Ten) goes after the attachment to the health care bill: “Up to now, 15 out of 19 million student loans were private loans, backed by the government,” Alexander says. “Now we’re going to borrow half-a-trillion from China to pay for billions in new loans. Not only will this add to […]


Apparently the right to vote is, indeed in the Constitution, contra legendary Emerson professor Mike Brown. According to the greatest legal mind of our time: In addition to energy production, which she called one of her favorite subjects, Palin was focused on getting people out to reverse what she called the leftist direction of the […]


A really nice takedown by the Republican. It’s disturbing to see him get so much support, knowing the economic consequences of his ideology.


Both sides of the aisle today are both praising Obama for his speech, and reprimanding Bobby Jindal (seriously, this guy is the Republican Obama? Then why does no one like him?) for his.

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 […]


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. It must […]


Reprinted from the DailyKos, Markos Moulitsas with a challenge to all non-liberals, to Republicans who just call everything liberal “socialization” without ever explaining what they mean or why its bad: What exactly are you afraid of? What, will he start some wars? Will the economy go to hell? Will gasoline suddenly cost four bucks a […]
