Wolf in Sheep's Clothing

Americans Elect feels like a Koch-Brothers-type Tea Partying of the Left and Indies. Exploit the anger and frustration of the constituency and drive them together under a populist tent…that’s in fact owned by the wealthy.

  Let’s just let these facts speak for themselves… more to come. First, a few gems from the man who wants access to “the button”; “I have no problem with homosexuality. I have a problem with homosexual acts.” “What happened in America so that mothers and fathers who leave their […]

This morning, I kicked a foul-mouthed woman off my Facebook page. She was a totally unreconstructed PUMA, who posted this article from the UK broadsheet, The Telegraph. I’ve nothing against foul mouths. I can swear with the best of them and in four languages. Hell, I live in Britain, where […]

Romney Perry Frontrunners

Would you rather be pushed off into the sea on an ice floe or hit by a train? This is not so much a literal choice of ways to die as it is a figurative choice for voters in electing either Mitt Romney or Rick Perry.

I was born a Democrat. My parents were Democrats before me. My father cast his first vote at 21 in 1936, for FDR. Four years later, when she turned 21, my mother did the same. She came from a long line of Democrats, going way back to Jackson, I suppose. […]

  Good morning, Planeteers! I trust you all are doing okay, having come through all this angst. Now that Congress is on their five-week PAID vacation, we can all step back a little and take a deep breath. They can’t do much damage while they’re gone! But not to worry…they […]
