Death and The Anti-Vaxxer

Death and The Anti-Vaxxer This is one blog post I've held off writing because it angers me beyond bearing, and scares me to death. 15 years ago, Andrew Wakefield, then a doctor, presented a paper to the famous medical journal The Lancet. In it he claimed there was a link between autism...

Saturday Jam: Keith Jarrett Trio, 'Solar and Extension'

YouTube I used to have the VHS tape of this concert back during another lifetime, and was really glad to find this performance of the classic Miles Davis tune "Solar" by the greatest jazz trio that ever played together; it's sheer telepathy. The audio track is a bit on the quiet...

Dallas Morning News Editorial: Anti-Muslim Yokels Brought Shame on Texas

A Dallas Morning News editorial on that absolutely disgraceful display of anti-Muslim hatred at the Texas Capitol pulls no punches: Editorial: Capitol Spectacle Brings Shame on Texas.

Wingnuts Convinced They've "Debunked" Charles Blow's Story About His Son & Campus Cop

On January 26th, New York Times columnist Charles Blow posted an op-ed entitled Library Visit, Then Held at Gunpoint, where he wrote about his son being detained at gunpoint by a Yale University police officer. Right wing bloggers are certain they have "debunked" this story because Blow did not...

Mitt Romney Not Running

It's official: Mitt Romney is bailing out, following the defection of one of his top advisers to Jeb Bush. "You can't imagine how hard it is for Ann and me to step aside, especially knowing of your support and the support of so many people across the country," Romney said...

Bill Would Allow Texas Teachers to Use Deadly Force Against Students

AUSTIN - Teachers would be able to use deadly force against students, and would be safe from prosecution, under legislation filed last week in the state House. The Teacher's Protection Act by Rep. Dan Flynn, R-Van, would allow educators to use force or deadly force if they feel they...

Just Another Outburst of Anti-Muslim Hatred in Texas

YouTube Right wing loons are always demanding that Muslims renounce terrorism and show their loyalty to the United States. And this is what happens when they do. Texas Muslim Capitol Day, which began in 2003, is organized by the Texas chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations and brings members of Muslim...

NPR: The Mormon Church Wants a Free Pass for Bigotry

MP3 Audio The Mormon church has apparently learned a lesson from the Catholics and Protestants who've been redefining "religious freedom" as a free pass for bigotry, because they announced this week that they'll support LGBT anti-discrimination laws -- with one catch. They want to be immune from criticism when they continue...

Justice Department Report: Sharyl Attkisson's "Hacked Computer" Was a Complete Fantasy

You may recall former CBS News reporter Sharyl Attkisson's absurd stories about her computer being hacked by the Post Office. I had some comments about her laughable claims last November. Well, today the Justice Department's Inspector General released a report on their investigation, and imagine my surprise: Justice Department's IG Report...

AFA "Repudiates" Chief Spokesman's Racist and Anti-Gay Statements Before Hosting Israel Trip for RNC

In a followup to the American Family Association's "repudiation" of raving hate-monger Bryan Fischer, the Southern Poverty Law Center reports that they received a letter from the AFA trying to distance themselves from Fischer's racist and anti-gay statements. The SPLC isn't buying it, and neither should anyone else. The AFA is...

Rachel Maddow on Loretta Lynch's Record, and Her Confirmation Hearing

This is long (more than 18 minutes), but it's very good. But the upshot is that Loretta Lynch will be a very good attorney general, and Republicans will eventually concede that. But not before using these hearings to whine about a man they arguably love to hate, perhaps even more...

Hate-Monger Bryan Fischer Fired by the American Family Association

Rachel Maddow just reported this amazing story. Tonight Bryan Fischer will have horrible nightmares about being mauled by bears. -- Charles Johnson (@Green_Footballs) January 29, 2015

Alex Jones Says Rand Paul Is Lying About Moderating His Extreme Positions

YouTube Sen. Rand Paul has been a frequent guest on the absolutely insane Alex Jones conspiracy show (and it continually amazes me that he apparently suffers no political consequences for it), and Jones is reciprocating by telling his viewers that Paul is just playing politics and lying about his so-called "moderation." And...

Andrew Sullivan Says He's Quitting Blogging

Andrew Sullivan says he's going to quit blogging: A Note to My Readers. I don't have much to say about this, because to be honest I was not a fan of Mr. Sullivan and I haven't paid much attention to his writing for years. I didn't like his apologia for the...

We Got Some Seriously Deranged Mail

You'll have to click to see this amazingly crazy email I received tonight from someone in Monterey, because it's pretty damned disturbing, not to mention racist and antisemitic. Holocaust Remembrance Day always excites the lunatics. Don't say I didn't warn you. Bring on the crazy.
