Rudy Can Fail

Why is Rudy Giuliani such an asshole? He actually said this a couple days ago: “This is the world we live in. It’s not this happy, romantic-like world where we’ll negotiate with this one, or we’ll negotiate with that one and there will be no preconditions, and we’ll invite (Iranian President Mahmoud) Ahmadinejad to the White House, we’ll invite Osama (bin Laden) to the White House,” Giuliani said. “Hillary and Obama are kind of debating whether to invite them to…

Rice – I – Rony

During her Friday visit to Moscow and after meeting with Vladimir Putin, a critical Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice stated, “In any country, if you don’t have countervailing institutions, the power of any one president is problematic for democratic development.”  Rice went on to criticize Putin for usurping so much power from Russia’s judiciary, legislature and media. Her concern is well placed but many of us wish that she would shout the same warning in the White House.  Now that…

O’Reilly Bribed Springsteen

O’Reilly Bribed Springsteen

Bruce Springsteen appeared on 60 Minutes last Sunday night, and during the segment he expressed some of his political views, including: “We’ve see things that have happened over the past six years that I did not think anybody ever thought they’d ever see in the United States. When people think of the American identity, they don’t think of torture. They don’t think of illegal wiretapping. They don’t think of voter suppression. They don’t think of no habeas corpus, no right…
