Why is King Carpetbagger & Uber-New Yorker Trump Really Defending Neo-Confederates?

The reactions to Charlottesville–and especially Trump’s bizarre comments afterwards–fell, predictably, along partisan lines. More than two-thirds of Republicans said Trump’s pitifully unconvincing “both sides” equivocation and quasi-defense of white supremacists was “well handled,” and even more than that said it wouldn’t affect their support of him in the long term. While Democrats once again came… Read More »

How I Chose “America’s Biggest Assholes” and the Runner-Ups

Choosing “America’s Biggest Assholes” is a daunting task. First, America is not as old as most other countries and there’s not–despite what you may have read about this or that President over the years–really “an American Hitler” or “an American Genghis Khan.” American ruthlessness is usually a more subtle and corporate-infused variety so that it’s sometimes… Read More »

100 Reasons to Impeach Donald Trump

This list is in no particular order and obviously some reasons will be stronger than others… 1. We didn’t elect him. There has never been a sitting President who lost… Read More »

How to Flip the South–State By State

Sure, I’ve posted videos today talking about how to win over Trump’s base and exploring why poor Southerners vote Republican, but how do we flip each state from red to blue? Here are at least some answers, ranking each state from “most flippable” to “hopeless.” Disqualified: Virginia and Oklahoma. Virginia is disqualified not because it isn’t part of the Southeast–it… Read More »

Petty Issues: Trump’s Joint Disgrace–I Mean, Address Edition

That five minute standing ovation for the mother of a fallen soldier went from “compassionate” to “snake-handling church-tent revival.” And Trump’s praising of a military he largely has done nothing for most definitely tip-toes over the line from “patriotic” to “I’m using you to wrap a protective shield around my fascism.” [Sean Spicer’s new thing… Read More »

Twelve Painful Truths Democrats Must Accept to Rebuild the Party

I don’t want to sugarcoat it: the Democratic Party is in trouble. It is at its lowest level since the late 1920’s and possibly even worse than that when you consider Hawaii (one of only three states including Rhode Island and Delaware where Democrats control the state legislature trifecta and all congressional representation) wasn’t yet a state at that time.… Read More »
