Here's a newsflash for Tea Partiers: You've been played like a fiddle by your so-called friends in the Republican Party. And don't start scoffing, progressives. Your chosen presidential candidate who now sits in the Oval Office has reneged on yet another of the few rock-solid pledges he made during his campaign two years ago.  

In Defense of Julian Assange and WikiLeaks

2 Comments · Wednesday, December 1, 2010
WikiLeaks recently obtained more than 251,000 secret diplomatic messages from U.S. embassies worldwide. In what's been dubbed "the Sept. 11 of world diplomacy," the latest leaked documents show the candid, private and unflattering assessments of world leaders by U.S. officials and the pressure tactics they use behind-the-scenes to achieve their goals. Tea Party queen Sarah Palin says WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange should be "pursued with the same urgency we pursue Al-Qaeda and Taliban leaders" and detained or assassinated.

It's 9 p.m. on Sunday, Nov. 28: Do you know where your rifle is? If you don't then it's time to mount up because Ohio's nine-day deer hunting season runs Monday through Saturday and after that you only have two more days this year to shoot one of those bastards.

The latest findings of the U.S. Census show the gap between the richest and poorest Americans is at its widest since records tracking household income have been kept, and is the highest among all industrialized Western nations. As reported by the Associated Press and others, the top 20 percent of Americans (those earning above $100,000 annually) received almost 50 percent of total income.  

Pillich Defends Military Service Against Smear Tactic

A favorite political tactic of some Republicans is to try to paint Democrats as weak on national security issues. The ploy mostly has gained popularity since the national Democratic Party publicly tore itself apart in spectacular fashion over disagreements about the Vietnam War in 1968. To counter the strategy, Democrats like to endorse candidates with military experience when they can, and finding such a candidate usually scares the crap out of Republicans.

TV writer John Kiesewetter has just what you need: a place to complain about Fox 19's coverage of Sunday night's fireworks. Among Kiesewetter's complained about not being able to see the tops of the fireworks. And said his biggest problem was the wide-angle shot of the circles with a star inside because the reflection looked like a pentagram and it scared him.  

God, Geese and the Rodeo Clown Save the Nation

What a monumental letdown. For a person who once described himself as a “rodeo clown” and regularly provides the type of high drama on his nightly TV show that would make the unhinged Howard Beale proud, Glenn Beck's much-hyped “divinely inspired message” to the American people landed with a thud this past weekend.

We Americans are proud of the idealized version of youth that most of us at least partially experienced as children: little Billy tossing ball with dad; Sally spending time with mom learning to repair dad and Billy's jeans. The Columbus Dispatch today reported that the contemporary version is just as good, as long as Billy enjoys traveling the country reliving dad's glory days and Sally doesn't mind either being left behind or winning at all costs.

There are some things that even the dumbest kid doesn't need his mom to tell him more than once: The stove is hot, scary movies aren't real and eating at Taco Bell will make you poop your pants. A new study hopes to put another surprisingly debatable issue to rest: whether hanging out in a room full of cigarette smoke is bad for the people who aren't even smoking.

President-elect Barack Obama has already saved one American industry from recession: gun sellers.
