Who Authorized Detainee Abuse? Time for an Independent Counsel to Find Out

My faith in the Constitution is whole; it is complete; it is total. And I am not going to sit here and be an idle spectator to the diminution, the subversion, the destruction, of the Constitution. Rep. Barbara Jordan (D-TX) House Judiciary Committee Statement on the Articles of Impeachment July 25, 1974   ...more

Laura Ingraham Calls Meghan McCain Fat, Those Who Did the Same to Limbaugh Cry "Foul!"

Liberals are enjoying this inter-party cat fight just as much as conservatives enjoyed the Jon Stewart-Jim Cramer cannibalization. Meghan McCain has spent the better part of the past two weeks promoting her column at The Daily Beast and jockeying for the role as GOP Jesus. She personally attacked Ann Coulter as a way to grab the headlines and pull herself up to some aspect of fledgling relevancy and then feigned shock when Laura Ingraham, conservative talk show host with Fox Radio (whose show airs after my stint in the a.m.) attacked back. ...more

The GOP's Man of Steele?

The GOP has taken its first steps back to relevancy since November 4th by electing itself a new chairman: former Maryland Lt. Governor Michael Steele. Steele replaces the disgraced Mike Duncan, whose mismanagement of the party left it light years behind the DNC in terms of technology and inclusiveness. It was a historic moment as Steele is the first black RNC member to be elected chair. ...more

By the time dusk fell on the evening of November 4th, the GOP party looked at their Reaganite ideal of a "shining city on a hill" now dust under their feet. History was made, in more ways than one. ...more

Voting, then Buying a Handgun

My husband and I did two things on election day. First, we voted, dropping off our ballots at the country courthouse.  Then we drove up to Kirkland to buy a handgun.  Oh, yeah, we voted for Barack Hussein Obama and Christine Gregoire.  First time in his life he voted straight Democrat, first time he ever voted for a Democrat for President. We would have stayed up watching the election returns and drinking champagne, except that the situation the country is in is too grave for that. ...more

Will the Long National Nightmare Be Over?

I early-voted in Arizona a couple of weeks ago. It was almost like praying. I spent a long time on the ballot, which was quite extensive--in Arizona as in many Western states there's always a raft of ballot initiatives to consider, and judges though appointed initially must be retained in office by a vote of the people. I voted on every single one of the dozens of judges even though I knew little about most of them. I don't think I ever relished filling out a ballot so much, and I was glad the early vote ballots are done by old ...more
