A “Gold Seam” Connects Republican Donors To The Insurrection
Fact: insurrections don’t pay for themselves. And, as a rule, insurrectionists themselves don’t have deep pockets. That was especially true of our insurrection. 99% of the angry white people over-running Congress on January 6 were middle class if that. In America, “middle class” means “just this side of broke”. Someone higher up the socioeconomic food…
There Can’t BE A “Republican Party” Anymore
How awful does someone have to be before our news media decides they’re awful? How many lies did Donald Trump have to tell before the press had no choice but to call Trump a “liar”? Is giving credence to criminal behavior really “journalism”? I just watched a segment on MSNBC where the conversation asked “what…
Where Do Republicans Go From Here? Nowhere
The GOP knew from the jump that Trump was Putin’s chump.
Dear American News Media: Not Every Point Of View Has A “Point”
Opinions. Everybody’s got one. But, not all opinions are created equal. Not every point of view has a point. For instance – a not-very-bright ten year old’s opinion about world affairs (or a libertarian’s) will likely lack nuance. Same as a Republican’s. Our news media has decided it can’t judge anyone’s opinion – no matter…
Why Right Wing Talk Is Cheap
Boy, the right wing makes a ton of noise, don’t they? They love getting up on their hind legs and spewing. The words being spewed don’t matter. It’s word salad that’s been through the garbage disposal. Alas, our undiscerning news media (undiscerning because they think “both sides do it”) makes zero distinction between facts and…
Trump Was Hoarding America’s Secrets Because He’s A Traitor
The instant Donald Trump stopped being POTUS, he lost all right to have our secrets in his possession. That’s a stone cold fact. That he took some of our most secret secrets with him to Mar a Lago? That was and is a crime even as he was doing it. It hasn’t stopped being a…
Karma Comes Calling For Mitch McConnell
You might have missed it. The shift was subtle. Karma’s come for Mitch McConnell. When President Biden signs the “Inflation Reduction Act” into law, the majority of Americans will have cause to celebrate. Republicans will, too. They just won’t admit it. The climate doesn’t care about anyone’s politics. The person who’ll celebrate least is Senate…
America’s Having An Ideological Argument, NOT A Political One
The GOP’s hate for democracy stands on one tectonic plate. Our love for it stands on another. America’s differences are ideological not political.
Republicans Are Like Movie Monsters But Waaaaaay More Evil
I’m no expert in movie monsters but I have put words into the mouths of a few. Over the course of my Hollywood writing-producing career, I’ve worked with a few name brand movie monsters: Freddy Krueger, He Who Walks Behind The Rows (The “Children Of The Corn” franchise) and especially the Crypt Keeper from HBO’s…
Let The Brain Drain Begin!
Hear that deafening suction sound? It’s the brain drain beginning. Fact: the cynical, corrupt religionistas who just took away every American woman’s reproductive rights never thought for two seconds of the ripple effects their spurious actions would cause. They never thought about them and didn’t care. Unfortunately for them, those ripple effects will boomerang viciously.…
