The reason that TV producers return to the well every time she comes out with a new book: they're betting that viewers won't be able to resist rubber-necking at this particular train wreck.

Larry Gellman

For eight years, our president, his team, and his vocal fan club on Fox and the radio have been singing the same sick and dissonant song. They tried to divide the country by spreading fear.

It's a peculiar feeling being swept up, however briefly, in the right-wing message machine. But if I thought I could walk away unscathed, I was fooling myself.

"The last I heard, the National Guard was moving in to crush some kind of uprising that torched the Rockefeller Center tree and destroyed all the Christmas windows at Saks."

Stampedes, Shootings and Bargains

This morning the news features stories of a stressed economy, but that takes second place to the smashing in of a Wal-Mart door by gluttonous Americans seeking deals on X-Box toys.

Hannity will now host the program by himself. And really, that's for the best. Both he and Colmes were together for twelve long years, and Sean needs some time for Sean.

Glenn Beck Is Now A Made Man

Matthew Filipowicz | Posted 05.25.2011 | Media

Glenn Beck has served the Republicans well, and so now, he gets his own show on the network that respects "fair and balanced" reporting the same way the actual Mafia respects the "law".

Liveblogging The Republican Convention - Day Four

If an undecided voter responded strongly to the yelling from Mitt, Rudy and Palin, and then watched McCain, they were probably disappointed and let-down by McCain.

Liveblogging The Republican Convention - Day Three

Bob Cesca | Posted 05.25.2011 | Politics
Bob Cesca

What I still want to know is why Governor Palin is more qualified than Olympia Snowe or Christine Todd Whitman or Kay Bailey Hutchison. The McCain campaign hasn't answered that question.

Liveblogging The Republican Convention - Day Two

Bob Cesca | Posted 05.25.2011 | Politics
Bob Cesca

Newt Gingrich on MSNBC just referred to Palin as McCain's "soulmate." I really don't think the Republicans understand what that word means. And now he just said that Obama was never the commander of the Alaska National Guard. Neither was Palin.

Dick's Grudge

Dick Morris inevitably had something rotten to say about Clinton. Why all the hostility? What could she have done to him to create this negativity? Then it hit me like a frying pan in a slapstick movie.
