History as allegory

A commenter at Sullivan’s blog has it nailed down: I think it helps to understand that, for right-wing populists, this thing we call “history” is less about real people who did real things in the real world, and more like just the Bible Part II. It’s a myth that can be manipulated to suit their […]

The end of having to hear about Sarah Palin?

One can only hope. A certain segment of the American people love Governor Palin because she’s attractive and represents the final triumph of ignorance in political discourse. She speaks almost entirely in bumper sticker sized soundbites, which is fine with them because they have no desire to even think in anything more complicated than slogans. […]

A really great non-event…….

Under the category of ” I did not see that coming…” it would seem that when Sarah Palin needs to inject herself into the news cycle, and she is out of ideas ( a process that takes all of 30 seconds), she falls back on her funbags: Which brings me, in a roundabout way, to […]

There goes the neighborhood…..

Seems Sarah Palin begrduges members of the press-the same freedoms she espouses elsewhere. Can somebody explain to me how this isn’t a despicable thing for Palin to do?

Why I like Family Guy…..

Because they still understand the meaning of the word satire. Which is apparently, a word Sarah Palin learned , in any one of the six colleges she attended: Mr. MacFarlane said in an e-mail message that “Family Guy” was proud of the way that the Ellen character was portrayed. “She is headstrong, outspoken and, at […]

True to her principles……

Sarah Palin and where she chooses to speak. The principle being: “If you want her to perform-you have to pay her.” Not unlike this place: Birds of a feather and all that.  “Madame, we’ve already established what you are-now we are just haggling over the price!”
