Greg Gianforte is May’s “Asshole of the Month”

As I get ready to list the Biggest Assholes in American history, I thought it only fitting I bring back the popular Working Class Economist segment “Asshole of the Month.” And I couldn’t think of anyone more deserving of that title than Montanta congressional candidate Greg Gianforte. You may have heard about the race for… Read More »

5 Types of Liberals That Irritate Me Too

There’s always factions inside a political movement, and that may be especially true for liberals–of which there are at least several dozen “types” from black liberals that may not support gay marriage to gay liberals that may be uncaring towards immigrant rights to immigrants that may not like unions to union liberals that may want… Read More »

Trump Impeachment Watch…Top Five Reasons to Impeach Him This Week

Since I wrote the epic takedown “100 Reasons to Impeach Trump” on his 100th day in office, he’s been determined to make me look dated by adding new reasons. Here are the top five reasons to impeach him in the last week or so… 5. He’s hinted he’s about to phase-out press releases. Obviously, this isn’t… Read More »

TV Reviews: Silicon Valley and Veep

Just yesterday, I pointed out that the Best Dramas on TV are struggling to reach the heights of “Best Dramas” of yester-year, but that doesn’t appear to be the case for TV’s Best Comedies. 2016 was the first year in Alabama Liberal history I chose a comedy (Veep) for Best Series, and “Silicon Valley” is… Read More »

TV Reviews: Better Call Saul, The Americans, Fargo, Homeland

We may finally be seeing the affect of studios greenlighting fewer movies to release bigger tentpoles, a strategy… Read More »

TV Reviews: The Leftovers, The Son, American Gods

The Leftovers…Longtime readers know that I hated the first season of HBO’s adaptation of the Tom Perrotta… Read More »

The Best Movie Mothers

I didn’t even want to put “of all time” in the title of this posting, because I realized that if there’s anything harder than coming up with a list of Bad Movie Mothers, it’s limiting my list of Good Movie Mothers. There were so many to choose from, this list is going to be a… Read More »

The Worst (Movie) Mothers of All Time

There have been so many bad movie mothers that it’s hard to know where to begin with a list like this, so I tried to focus less on “bad moms” and more on “Bad Mothers.” What’s the difference? A “Bad Mother” is serious business and severe, possibly played by Nicole Kidman, and definitely representative of… Read More »
