Because of a benign-sounding charter amendment offered by right wing zealots, candidates are not known by their political affiliations. That removes the shorthand that busy people use to vote.

The real problem for Democrats is that by choosing Creigh Deeds they've diluted the Democratic brand as far as it can go. Let's face it, Deeds is no Jim Webb.

The right-wing radicals, unanimous in their agreement that KSM should not be tried in the U.S. courts, aren't just crazy, they're un-American. We don't take people out and shoot them without trials.

Michael Wolff | Posted 05.25.2011 | Politics
Michael Wolff

The soda tax is being tried out as a potential wedge issue, a populist theme. Super groovy cool self-satisfied yuppie people don't drink soda. But gross fat compulsive lacking-all-self-control normal Americans do.

The Venezuelan president believes that what the right fears most about Obama is his attempt to rehabilitate the idea that "public policy" can solve social problems, as opposed to the market.

We don't have all the facts regarding Bill Sparkman's death. Yet the fact that, upon hearing of this incident, politically minded people wonder whether the death was a result of right wing invective is telling.

Does This Misspelled Tea Party Sign Make My Butt Look Big?
