Some Gentle Home Truths for Our British Friends

The British hate to be called on their faults. After all, they were our colonial masters who treated us like second-class citizens whilst taxing us like first class fools. They reserve the right to maintain the imperial high ground in passing judgement on the rest of the world, but try telling them about their shortcomings, […]

The British love to paint the Americans as sore losers and whingers, but BBC’s coverage of the 2012 London Olympics proves that their sports coverage is just as puerile, dire and unprofessional as any political cable news broadcast in the United States. In fact, some of the BBC’s commentators give Alex Wagner gravitas. Early last […]

Chris Matthews Needs to Teach His Son How Government Works

Amnesty International Protests U.S. Detentions At Guantanamo

Chris Matthews has interviewed Zack Galifianakis and Will Ferrell, who star in the up-coming film entitled The Campaign, which is, well, about a political campaign.

John Sununu’s Pot and Kettle Moment

Seems there’s yet another euphemism for the word “black” in American English: unAmerican. Because that’s really what Republicans mean when they say that about our current President.

Mrs Greenspan interviewed the less-than-illustrious Governor of my home state today. That would be the lying, overzealous, Carpetbagging misogynist named Bob McDonnell, he who speaks with a Philadelphia accent and pretends to know and speak for all Virginians. I still can’t figure out how he got elected. Well, yes, I can … he got elected […]
