MSNBC Revokes David Shuster’s Twitter Privileges?


David Shuster has…problems. Not the least of which is his inability to conduct an interview with an ideological adversary with any level of professionalism. And by “professionalism” I mean refraining from engaging in personal feuds and/or accusing the Clintons of “pimping out” their daughter. More recent incidents have included an on-air fight in January with [...]

Killing Osama bin Laden: Assassination, War Casualty or Criminal?


Thou shalt not kill. That is not only one of the Ten Commandments; it is central to any civil society. Politicians and pundits alike are quick to say that we live under the rule of law.

Does Free Speech Trump the Right to Privacy? Phelps’ Putrid Protests of Soldier’s Funeral Goes to the Supreme Court

Foreign Terrorists Deserve Representation; but the Cheneys are Nonpersons: Meltdown with(out) Keith Olbermann Part 38


Under Stalin—and the Soviet system in general—someone who fell into disfavor by the ruling Party could become a “nonperson.”  They weren’t just thrown out of power or persecuted, it was as though they did not exist.

Opponents of Government Health Care are “Sub-human” and “Ghouls”—Meltdown with Keith Olbermann Part 37


Coming soon to a Tea Party near you?
A week ago Keith Olbermann slandered the Founders by falsely claiming…
