Steve Gilliard is possessed by the spirit of The Rude Pundit. Well, motherfuckers, and that means you, fat ass Goldberg and your master, Rich Lowry, PNAC Bitch Beinart, the racist wannabe white Malkin and the little fucktards at LGF, Bareback Andy and “Diversity” Instacracker, all you backstabbing, fag hating uncle tom ministers, you can see […]

President Bush’s approval ratings have now dropped into the 30s. George W. Bush’s overall job approval ratings have dropped from a month ago even as Americans who approve of the way Bush is handling his job as president are turning more optimistic about their personal financial situations according to the latest survey from the American […]

Replacing GWOT with GSAVE?

Over on AlterNet, there’s a great analysis by George Lakoff of the recent decision by the Bush administration to stop talking about the “global war on terror” and start using the term “global struggle against violent extremism” instead. The war frame is all-consuming. It takes focus away from other problems, from everyday troubles, from jobs, […]

John Roberts vs. democracy

There’s always something new to learn about Supreme Court nominee John Roberts. Long story short, Roberts played a big role in stealing the election in Florida in 2000, despite Newsweek assertions to the contrary. This guy may not be as bad as some of the extremists that Bush might have picked, but he’s looking more […]

Past time to change course

David Sirota has written an excellent piece that does a good job of summing up the damage that the corporate shills in the so-called Democratic Leadership Council (DLC) have done to both the image and the electoral hopes of the Democrats. The 2008 Democratic presidential candidates this week are busy genuflecting at Corporate America’s altar—otherwise […]

Defining patriotism (again)

Digby lays into those Democrats who have decided that an effective strategy is to call those of us who opposed the Iraq war “unpatriotic”: Being lectured all the time by effete DC Democrats on “patriotism” because I don’t back their reflexively hawkish foreign policy is not only insulting it’s dumb. It plays into stereotypes that […]

Rove must go

As the Bush administration tries to sweep the Rove story off the front pages by quickly nominating a new Supreme Court justice, I’ll take a moment to point to a couple of interesting Plame-related items. First, there’s this ABC News poll: Should Karl Rove Be Fired If He Leaked Classified Information? Yes No All 75% […]

Over on The Progress Report, they’re taking the time to debunk all of the new spin that the Republican operatives are trying to put out to get Karl Rove off the hook. There’s also an excellent piece on TPMCafe that takes to task the idea that Valerie Plame was somehow not really a covert CIA […]

It really was Rove

Over the past week, the facts have finally started to come out about the long ignored Valerie Plame fiasco. Back when she was outed as a CIA agent, many people speculated that it was Karl Rove who had leaked the information, in an effort to punish Joseph Wilson for blowing the whole uranium excuse for […]
