Conservatives are angry about something, so The Enquirer told one of its few remaining staffers to spend a couple hours searching for quotes on conservative blogs. Maybe it's because reporter Carl Weiser included in his preview of Jerry Springer coming to town a list of Springer's upcoming show topics, as if they have any relevance to voter suppression and GOP election laws.

Nov. 17-23: Worst Week Ever!

0 Comments · Wednesday, November 24, 2010
If you were to judge what marriage is like by depictions in beer commercials, you'd likely believe that most of them are pretty terrible and most husbands are real dicks who prefer doing idiotic things with their friends than spending time with their wives. In fact, a new study by the Pew Research Center found that 39 percent of Americans believe marriage is becoming obsolete. Jerry Seinfeld's hilarious TV single life apparently has spoiled it for everyone.  

Bill Maher Doesn't Care for Tea, Thank You

If you've ever been on the receiving end of one of his acerbic barbs, you might be inclined to call Bill Maher a witch. Or worse. "No, I'm you," he snarkily replies during a recent telephone interview, when asked if he'd ever been referred to as a Wiccan. Maher brings his politically-informed stand-up comedy to the Aronoff Center for the Arts on Saturday.  

Born in Anger, Tea Party Starts Turning on Itself

3 Comments · Wednesday, July 21, 2010
Less than 18 months into its existence, the Tea Party movement is in the throes of an identity crisis. It began when the NAACP announced it would consider a resolution at its annual meeting that asked the Tea Party to condemn and expel its racist elements, calling them "a threat to democracy." That was enough to get the temperatures rising of some Tea Party leaders, who certainly are all too willing to dish out criticism but never seem able to take it. But what happened next really lit their fuse.  

Obama v. Gaga, Name Changer and Rock Beards

The first African-American President of the United States of America is cyber-facing off with the first extraterrestrial Pop diva (Lady Gaga) in a race to see who can be the first living person to break 10 million friends on Facebook. President Obama immediately stopped work on the BP oil spill, economic rebuilding and fighting two wars and hired Ashton Kutcher as his Facebook czar.  

June 23-28: Worst Week Ever!

The Enquirer today performed its daily newspaper version of multimedia progress, sending a reporter out with a hand-held thermometer on a 90-degree day to measure the heat. Prefacing his discoveries with the acknowledgment that only a fraction of people in Cincinnati didn't already know it was hot as hell outside, this intrepid layoff-dodger recorded such fascinating discoveries as a 113-degree metal picnic table and 133-degree asphalt.  

Social Security, Medicare Faced Same Arguments

Don't listen to what the squeaky wheels on the far right are yelling this week: Most Americans will support the health care reform bill passed by the House once they see what's included in it. In fact, the first major poll taken after the March 21 vote suggests a much different picture than what's being touted by the Tea Party and GOP "leaders."  

A View from Abroad

BBC reporter Katty Kay’s take on U.S. politics

3 Comments · Tuesday, March 16, 2010
Katty Kay is a worldly Brit who's covered our nation for more than a decade, though a "strange duality" continues to puzzle her: The more highly respected an American politician is abroad (such as President Obama), the more suspect he is at home; and Americans want some kind of health care reform but refuse to learn anything from "socialistic" Europeans who enjoy cheaper, broader health care with equal or better outcomes. She explored these contradictions at the national speakers forum of the Cincinnati Woman's City Club on March 11.  

Jan. 20-26: Worst Week Ever!

It's bad enough to get a text message from your girlfriend when you know she's driving a car, but when your dad hits you with an ROFL while he's on the road driving a big rig, you know several things are wrong (ROFL). That's why the U.S. government today formally banned truckers and bus drivers from texting while behind the wheel.
