(385) Comments | Posted May 1, 2006 | 2:27 PM

Huffington Post colleagues Peter Daou and Chris Durang are frustrated and incensed at the media for ignoring Stephen Colbert's ascerbic routine at the White House Correspondents' Dinner.

They chalk it up to the (in their view) compliant MSM and its preference for buying into the preferred conservative view...

Forever Young: From "Ohio" To Iraq

(21) Comments | Posted April 28, 2006 | 11:26 PM

(Crossposted, with minor changes, from Ragged Thots)

I'm not really much of a fan of '60s "protest" or hippie music. However, there are notable exceptions.

Crosby, Stills and Nash were never musically interesting until Neil Young hooked up with them (after having worked with Stephen Stills previously in...

Bush's Black Poll Day

(27) Comments | Posted October 14, 2005 | 1:56 AM

Actually, "non-black" poll day might be more accurate.

It seems like, when Steve Gilliard and I were doing our blog version of "playing the dozens" a few weeks back (here, here, here and here), evidently, we were wasting our time.

Why? Because George W. Bush has...

Now that Judith Miller has been sprung – and reportedly about to cash in big time for her difficult time in jail, let's revisit those "Two Tense Weeks in July." When I posted this extended timeline a few weeks ago, it produced some perplexity. So, open up the...

Bin There, Not Done That

(5) Comments | Posted June 30, 2005 | 5:34 AM

From a rhetorical standpoint, President Bush's address Tuesday was well-written and presented and may provide a momentary boost in support for his position of completing -- to use a word he uttered nine times -- "the mission."

Rare Judicial Honesty

(0) Comments | Posted May 18, 2005 | 5:54 AM

Lampley-York Smackdown!

(0) Comments | Posted May 11, 2005 | 1:27 AM

Well, thank goodness that didn't take long. One of the early criticisms of this effort is that there are all these nice opinions offered by many opinionated folks but it seems a little, oh, what's the word, boring? Indeed, as Farhad Manjoo points out in Salon: "[I]t would be...

Thanks to Arianna for giving me a little space in this little venture. My bio nearby tells you a little bit about me. It also informs you where else you can find me in the "real world" as well as other parts of blogdom. Since I...
