Let the Gaslighting Commence: Covington Catholic High School Edition

The Face of Trump’s America

The Face of Trump’s America

If he was just a high school kid who had come face-to-face with an elderly man chanting and banging on a drum, maybe I see confusion, nervousness, and teen awkwardness. As a member of an all-male, overwhelmingly-white group of teenaged boys on a school-sanctioned field trip to protest women’s right to choose, I start seeing a mix of testosterone, adolescent […]

Decent people must shun Rick Snyder for the rest of his life

The worst governor in U.S. history requires the infamy he’s earned Frontline points out there is still no one in jail for the Flint Water Crisis. Meanwhile, Rick Snyder walks free. Snyder is free to plot his “next act” — which is what rich people do while 4.8 million federal employees plot their next meal — and travel the world […]

SECURE THE BORDER! BUILD A WALL! AND BOB WILL PAY FOR IT!

SECURE THE BORDER! BUILD A WALL! AND BOB WILL PAY FOR IT!

So, I may not have thought this out… I promised my wife that I’d build a wall around our vegetable garden. She didn’t seem as happy as I thought she’d be. “We don’t need a wall,” she said. “A wall won’t keep the critters out–they’ll just tunnel underneath and still eat my lettuce! And the birds will still swoop down […]

Trump is a loser and the emergency is that he will never accept this

Trump is a loser and the emergency is that he will never accept this

This is racist crisis that we always expected and Trump needs Before James Comey decided to make Donald Trump president, the GOP nominee’s refusal to say he would concede if defeated occupied much of our political conversation in the closing month of the 2016 election. Since his party suffered its biggest House losses since Watergate, this fear has proven correct. […]

We Told You…

We Told You…

I’m not here for the impending barrage of heartfelt stories about Trump voters who have now “seen the light,” and suddenly realize that his tax cuts, and tariffs, and gutting of regulations, and pulling out of trade deals around the globe, and manipulation of the SEC and stock market, and threats against judges, and attacks on the press, and government […]

When You Give a Teacher a Gun…

When You Give a Teacher a Gun…

Here are just a few of the most troubling excerpts from a very disturbing recent article on arming teachers, presented without comment: “When she started her career, Pam’s salary was $23,000. (“If I ever see $55,000, I’ll be 105 years old,” she says, laughing.) The district is covering her hotel and ammunition for training, but she paid for her new […]

A little “locker room talk” from a Democrat has Republicans’ ladies undergarments all in a twist

A little “locker room talk” from a Democrat has Republicans’ ladies undergarments all in a twist

Rashida Tlaib had the audacity to invoke what Dan Savage has been saying for two years with his hashtag #ITMFA (“Impeach the motherfucker already”) when she made comments to a group of MoveOn activists yesterday and, to hear the Republicans’ response to it, you’d think she had said it during the half-time show at the Superbowl. “People love you.
