A common disease of the right

Every once in a while I read something that makes me feel good, because I can honestly say I got there first, and when I see such a thing I feel I owe it to me reader or readers to point this out. Case in point, these observations from Josh Marshall regarding Trump: Going on […]

The DCCC is fully capable of snatching defeat from the jaws of victory

I wish I could say that the folks at Down with Tyranny are a bit over the top, since they are constantly railing against the Democratic Establishment. Unfortunately, they always seem to be right, particularly about the DCCC: Following up on today’s long early morning post about how badly the GOP is screwing up 2018 […]

Random thoughts on yet another massacre

A few observations, probably unoriginal, about the Las Vegas shootings. As Chris Murphy pointed out, the predictable braying about the prayers of NRA supporting politicians being with the victims is becoming increasingly annoying. The stench of hypocrisy is overwhelming. It has already come from Trump, and the stench from that quarter is almost unbearable. As […]
