A Tale of Two Headlines

President ObamaI haven't heard or seen anyone touching on this yet, and I found this to be very interesting. Perhaps I should start a new segment for the show called "Dueling Headlines" or something. But imagine you were reading the newspaper, and the editor accidentally ran one of these as the top headline on the paper, and then directly underneath it they ran the other as the top story. I'm not implying anything here, or making any accusations. Any conclusions drawn by the reader are entirely their own. In other words, I'm not saying, I'm just saying. Ready? Here is your first installment of Dueling Headlines.

CIA Operating in Libya; Obama Authorized Rebel Arms Shipments

Amid Libya Rebels, 'Flickers' of al Qaeda

Do you see what I'm saying? Imagine Rachel Maddow, or some other liberal dude on MSNBC were to accidentally cover those two stories back to back. That might be pretty embarrassing for that network. As a matter of fact, let's just say that this is my point. I'm just trying to help out our friends over at MSNBC in an attempt to keep their hosts from embarrassing themselves in front of the literal tens of people who watch that network. You may now return to your regularly scheduled surfing.

  • Watered Down Travel Ban

    Watered Down Travel Ban

    I have some friends and family who supported President Trump from early on in the process. From time to time they will ask me when I will admit that I was wrong about him. "If Trump does x... If Trump gets y... If Trump supports a policy that results in z... will you admit that you were wrong?" My answer is always "no", because I wasn't wrong. To be clear, I could be wrong in practical application, but that isn't what an election is about. Elections are about theory and speculation and, generally speaking about judging records. Trump had no record to speak of, and his history of stances on issues was all over the map. I opposed his candidacy for several major reasons, all of which are proven valid in this single issue we now refer to as the "travel ban". Here were my reasons.

  • Fraudulent Rant by Judge Jeanine

    Fraudulent Rant by Judge Jeanine

    If you're not familiar with Justice with Judge Jeanine, it is a show on the FOX News Network starring Jeanine Pirro. She is known for her over-the-top rants where she serves up gobs of fresh red meat for her largely hard right wing audience. While it's not unusual for her to be a little fast and loose with the facts, she has been known to occasionally return from the break with a correction from her producers. Last night, however, there was no such correction to an outright lie she told on the show, and the matter being discussed should have (at the very least) contained a disclaimer from the host. I would cut her some slack, but as a former prosecutor and judge, she should be well aware of what proper protocol should have been here.

  • Wake The Hell Up, GOP!

    Wake The Hell Up, GOP!

    It's not cute anymore, Republicans. The President of the United States is completely detached from reality, and you can't fix that. You can't cover it up, you can't explain it away, and let me make this as clear as I possibly can for you. You cannot possibly undo the damage you are doing to the party brand by trying to pretend this man is anything other than completely unhinged. I'm watching Sean Hannity borrow guests from the Alex Jones show in an attempt to bolster Trump's conspiratorial claims. I'm seeing relatively mainstream conservatives make themselves look like the crazed fringes of the paranoid right wing. Don't believe me? Look at this.
