Here to save the world from the evil American capitalists and the dreaded Senior citizens of the Tea Party . Over… Read More »
Prolonged Detention. Rachel Maddow addresses the President’s proposal to indefinitely detain persons who are threats to this country, because of something they “might” do. I looked the video up because some say Al-Awlaki should not have been killed. They are saying he should have gotten a trial. Awlaki was placed on the CIA capture or… Read More »
Herman Cain took the opportunity to school the entire MSNBC Round-table after the Reagan Library debate last night.

Could it be true? Is Obama even losing MSNBC?
Despite having said that it should be country before politics, Obama put his politics before almost everything – including politics. Before his most sudden change of heart, Obama had demanded that he address Congress on the same night as the next GOP debate – September 7th.

Al Sharpton. In a wonderful example of his ability to inspire 10’s of people, he created the phrase that ignited … something.
Time Magazine Editor Mark Halperin should have known better. While on-air “gaffes” are not rare, a media member flatly stating his opinion on-the-air only because he thought it could censored out later is not a common occurrence. Perhaps Mark should take some motherly advice- “If you can’t say something nice about someone, say nothing at all!”… Read More »
Chris Mathews washed out and got replaced. Lawrence O’Donnell is quickly on his way to washing out and getting cancelled.

On O’Donnell’s MSNBC show, “The Last… Read More »
On Thursday, Former Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice sat down with Lawrence O’Donnel on “The Last Word” and she honestly, got the last word.

Indeed, the… Read More »
Last week, when Florida’s Judge Vinson shredded President Obama’s vaunted Socialized Medicine Healthcare Law, he was called an “Activist Judge.” The Obama administration was caught in a shell game when they originally campaigned to create Obamacare, as it is widely known. They called the mandated fees for Obamacare taxes at one point, and later… Read More »
So the powers that be at MSNBC have chosen a new tagline, “Lean Forward.” And they’re introducing it today. How original! That must have been one heck of a focus group that swooned over that bit of marketing excellence! I guess we can dispense with the legacy “Assume the Position,” aka ATP, which also involves… Read More »
During President Obama’s election bid, the fairness doctrine garnered some of the spotlight. Conservatives warned that the doctrine would censor the media and filter it of any messages the administration did not agree with. The liberals.. well, that’s what they were hoping would happen.
