Fred Branfman, author, blogger and early contributor to the current California economic miracle under Governor Jerry Brown, has written a very long apologetic about Noam Chomsky, or more accurately a standard screed against US imperialism and capitalism using Chomsky as a prop. Presumably he thought that invoking the grand old man’s name would somehow spur [...]
Gee Nancy, perhaps this is the kind of shrill rhetoric you remember so tearfully from the old days in San Francisco.
Pelosi may have been pining for the relative civility of the Tea Partiers as she attempted to deal with Code Pink and anti-Israel protestors at the America’s Future Now conference earlier today. As the room [...]

The clip below is from a recent press conference in which Christie utterly [...]

I will spare you the long explanation of what a “business intelligence guy” does for a living, because your eyes would soon roll back in your head and that’s never fun unless accompanied by [...]
