The Washington Post | Dana Milbank | Posted 09.12.2014 | Politics

Friday Talking Points -- Republicans' Foot-Shooting Party

Even when Republicans weren't shooting at their own feet this week, it appears they were conducting a circular firing squad instead. The 2014 campaign, in other words, is off to a raucous start... and it's only February.

Post Columnist Is Big Offender on CBO Obamacare Report

Sandy Goodman | Posted 04.09.2014 | Media
Sandy Goodman

The worst offender I saw in the press was Dana Milbank. I found him terribly hypocritical because he offered two almost completely contrasting takes on the CBO report on successive days, without ever admitting he'd done so.

In fact, it was even a big week just for political anniversaries. Fifty years ago this week, an event of no little importance happened. I speak, of course, tomorrow's 50th anniversary of the first broadcast of Doctor Who by the BBC.

2011-11-29-20111107bothsidesnow.jpgWhat a week for Republicans! It started with Obama fighting off simultaneous scandals and 24 coming back this Fall. But as Spitzer and Reagan discuss, by Friday the Scandals Scorecard revealed more smoke than fire. Who'll tell FOX?

Anti-gay Organizations Exploit and Fundraise in Wake of Attack

The shooting that took place at the Washington, D.C. headquarters of the Family Research Council last week was a tragedy. The security guard who apprehended the shooter is a hero. The actions of anti-gay groups in the aftermath have been nothing short of reprehensible.

Friday Talking Points -- Milbank's Unfunny Puns

The line between certain types of comedy and the political/media world should be brighter than ever. This is a lesson Dana Milbank of the Washington Post apparently has yet to learn.

Gingrich Loses the Media Primary

The rough media consensus today is that the Republican contest is, in fact, over. Gingrich is described not so much as a serious contender for the Republican nomination as he is an impediment to Romney's need to unify the party and focus on Barack Obama.

Obama Finally Gets Tough

President Obama came out swinging on Monday, heeding the advice of his critics in taking a firm stand on his positions for fixing the economy and reducing unemployment in the face of intense, unyielding opposition from Republicans.

Obama was a follower in leader's clothing from the beginning -- or, as Winston Churchill said about Clement Atlee, "a sheep in sheep's clothing."

Mitt Romney's Dunder Mifflin Infinity | Jason Linkins | Posted 08.15.2011 | Politics

This week, the Mitt Romney campaign earned itself some plaudits after releasing a rather evocative new advertisement, called "Bump In The Road." The spot is a brutal attack ad that hits right at the heart of the nation's ongoing unemployment crisis.

Washington Post Columnist: It's Ridiculous That Lawmakers Would Advocate For The Middle Class | Jason Linkins | Posted 06.15.2011 | Politics

It seems like just a little while ago that the Washington Post's Dana Milbank was rightfully complaining about the rogering he was getting at the hands of Citibank. One might have imagined that Milbank's trials and tribulations then would have given him some insight into the reality that income disparity exists and that ordinary people are bearing the brunt of the bad economy. Only, now that a bunch of Democratic lawmakers have set out to try to ameliorate these problems, Milbank has reverted back to a position of hyena-bray ridicule.

Jay Carney's Hidden Wild Side | Jason Linkins | Posted 05.25.2011 | Politics

The New York Times has a quasi-profile of new White House Press Secretary Jay Carney out, and the big takeaway is basically... I don't know, exactly! Jay Carney is kind of dull, maybe? Or he wasn't all that forthcoming with reporter Jeremy Peters?

There is simply no understanding the prevalence of gun violence in America without discussing the nefarious role played by the NRA. Any public conversation regarding restricting access to guns has been considered verboten.
