Despite the bailout, the European and Asian markets are in what the Financial Times describes as a "global sell-off" but which less conservative media are describing as a "bailout panic."

If we are not seeing through the Republican spin this time around, then we will have to take full responsibility for the results of a McCain-Palin administration.

Why I love Sarah Palin

The McCain camp has been harshly criticizing the media for its coverage of Palin, signaling that the curmudgeonly nominee's love fest with the press has finally ended, as it should.

This ticket is coming apart at the seams. It was McCain's birthday last week, but he gave the Democrats one giant gift in Palin.

Palin will now be vetted by the national press and the blogosphere and it won't be pretty. She's got six short weeks to learn foreign and economic policy. The honeymoon is over.

Oh-Bama!

Call me Michelle Obama, but I feel damned proud of my country right now. Though he still has a major hurdle to climb in actually winning the presidency, our nation has truly entered a new era.

We are a nation at war -- why are two neophytes on the world stage, Bayh and Kaine, at the top of the list when Obama himself has zero foreign policy or national security chops?

The Right Wing's Racist Attacks on Michelle Obama

The right wing attack dogs have one goal, and that's to scare the crap of America. It's 2004 all over again. But instead of gay marriage, it's angry black folk.

Who's Your Baby Daddy? Plastic Ken's Denial Part II

Andy Ostroy | Posted 05.25.2011 | Politics

Edwards, who chalks up his sexual indiscretions to unbridled narcissism, flatly denies he's the father of Hunter's six month old baby. So let's get this straight: he's unequivocally denying something else?

The Right Wing Attack Machine and the Race Card

The race card's being played alright, but not by Obama. Let's not confuse playing the race card with pointing out the playing of a race card.

David Brooks is Dead Wrong About Barack Obama

Brooks summarily tears apart Obama's entire career as if it's truly meaningless. Give us a break-- your shameless partisanship precedes you. You're a Rove in sheep's clothing.

McCain: "It's My Surge, Dammit! I Was Right. Why Won't Anyone Show Me Some Respect?"

Andy Ostroy | Posted 05.25.2011 | Politics

McCain's unconscionable accusation that Obama would "rather lose a war in order to win a political campaign" demonstrates just how low McCain will stoop. So much for the "respectful" campaign he promised.

The New Yorker gambled big with this cover. If it's intention was to be controversial and dominate the news, it succeeded. But if it's goal was to present a compelling message, it failed miserably.

The Wesley Clark "Scandal:" Democrats Get Sucked Into the Same Old Republican Trap

In the past couple of weeks Obama has reversed course on a number of issues in a centrist ploy to out-McCain McCain. Be careful, Barack, that and a few more episodes in the wuss-suitand you'll be waking up empty-handed November 5th.

Hoppin' the Hillary Bandwagon

All this fawning, hypocrisy and phoniness over Hillary is making me want to puke. What is it about Democrats and bandwagons? This one is so full it's about to tip.
