Clues About Iran’s Testing of Obama on The Daily Show


Last night, Jon Stewart interviewed Roxana Saberi, a journalist with dual American-Iranian citizenship that was arrested in Iran and placed in the notorious torture-house known as Evin Prison. The timing is noteworthy: It happened shortly after the inauguration of President Obama, where he made some pro-democracy statements but said that the U.S. would extend a [...]

Left Playbook — Crash the Tea Parties


Ghandi famously charted the trajectory of his protest movement thus: “First they ignore us, then they ridicule us, then they fight us, then we win.”
In the aftermath of the hand-to-hand combat that was the Health Care Reform bill I think it is safe to say we are well into step three. (For the guardians of [...]

Obamacare: Let Us Not Talk Falsely Now


It took 30 years to put limits on what welfare recipients can receive. The entitlement state mentality sometimes seems built into the DNA of advanced economies. Repealing the Orwellian sounding “Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act” is a pipe dream. They won. The earliest this can even be addressed is the Spring of 2013. A [...]

Jon Stewart’s Contributions to Democracy


Jon Stewart and I have something in common: We both believe in making as much money as possible, with as little work as possible, with as little time as possible. At least, that’s what I gather from the fact that tonight’s episode was re-run, just like yesterday—even though the signing of the health care coverage [...]
