But in an era of ''low info" voters --- for the right and left and everything in between, this is easier said than done. For the moment, Darwinism is the central tenet of the super extreme right and will remain so for the foreseeable future.

Are There Bigger Skeletons in the Bachmann Closet?

Andy Ostroy | Posted 09.17.2011 | Politics

Michele Bachmann herself has refused to provide details about her foster children. But given her penchant for exaggeration, don't we have a right to know more about her foster parenting and just how many children this actually involved?

Daniels Out. Time for Scarborough?

The tepid support from the right to the current GOP pack should convince Joe Scarborough that the party faithful is waiting for a skilled politician with personality and name-recognition to enter the race.

The Voters Have Spoken...or Have They?

Andy Ostroy | Posted 05.25.2011 | Politics
Andy Ostroy

Republicans and Tea Party braggarts are beaming that voters have spoken. But have they? The truth is, I don't think they've said much of anything. Rather, what they did Tuesday instead was grunt and groan.

This is not the hope America voted for in the fall of 2008. Now another election is upon us. On Tuesday, voters can choose candidates capitalizing on bitterness, or they can return to hope and provide time for change to play out.

2010-10-21-fjeifniedv.jpgYes, I'm sick and tired of the sheer stupidity of this movement called the Tea Party.

Extreme Prejudice

Steven Weber | Posted 05.25.2011 | Politics
Steven Weber

What a time to be alive. Extremists: it's our time to shine! Like the tip of a cracked whip, extremists make the most noise and do the most damage. Oh, and get the most press.

The Midterms: It's the Stupidity, Stupid

Andy Ostroy | Posted 05.25.2011 | Politics
Andy Ostroy

What we're witnessing today is a monumental dumbing down of GOP politics. The lowering of the standards and qualifications bar so low that only candidates appealing to the lowest common denominators stand a chance.

Christine O'Palin's Great Disappearing Act

Christine O'Donnell's main strategy? Hope voters are just plain stupid and will vote for her in an unprecedented knowledge vacuum.

A Message to Republicans: Don't Go Measuring the Drapes Just Yet

Andy Ostroy | Posted 05.25.2011 | Politics
Andy Ostroy

The electorate is angry and disenchanted with politicians on both sides of the aisle. But the polls still show voters' preference for Democrats when the question is who can better handle the economy and the nation's main problems.

Democrats Just Love Those Ticket Splittin' Republicans!

Democrats are enjoying sitting back with their popcorn buckets as they watch the GOP Civil War get nastier by the minute, making it even more likely that the left will have another two years at the controls.

Why the Tea Party Candidates Are So Afraid of the Media

Andy Ostroy | Posted 05.25.2011 | Politics
Andy Ostroy

How can a politician be expected to go toe-to-toe with the likes of Ahmadinejad, Qaddafi, Kim Jong Ill and Putin when they're utterly terrified of facing David Gregory, Bob Schieffer and Wolf Blitzer?

Andy Ostroy

I don't expect to die anytime soon, yet I still have life insurance. So think of supporting the campaign of Coons as life insurance. We don't think we'll need it, but our loved ones be happy that we had it.

Sarah & the GOPettes: Assessing the O'Donnell Victory

Andy Ostroy | Posted 05.25.2011 | Politics
Andy Ostroy

With Christine O'Donnell's victory, Tea Baggers are sending the same kind of naive, misguided, anger-fueled message to the Republican Party that the Naderites sent to Democrats in the 2000 presidential election.

Tea Party Activists? They Actually Are Inactivists!

Lennard Davis | Posted 05.25.2011 | Politics
Lennard Davis

Since when did the media switch from calling Tea Party members "Tea Baggers" to "activists?" What is their noble activity? Dressing up in silly costumes and once a year attending rallies.

The rich have always manipulated the ignorant for political (in the service of financial) gain. And things have more or less worked out in the long run.

An Open Letter to Newt Gingrich

Just think Newt, after you and The Wasilla Wonder are nominated you can start thinking about your cabinet, and how you can stock it with brilliant 21st Century thinkers and bridge-builders like Rand Paul, Ken Buck and Sharron Angle.

So far, like her Tea Baggin' pals Michele Bachmann, Sharron Angle and Rand Paul, Palin offers nothing meaningful to the debate and excites no one beyond her narrow-minded, race-baiting base.
