Hillary Clinton Came Off as Presidential, Unrepentant and Cheap at Last Night’s Democratic Presidential Debate

Skewed News — Yesterday I tweeted that last night’s Democratic debate — inexplicably held on a Saturday when few Americans could be expected to watch it — would be a “do or die” moment for Bernie Sanders. Bernie did. But he couldn’t have done it without a major assist by former Maryland Martin O’Malley, aka That Other Guy. Bernie, who […]

Letter to Right-Wingers: Why No One on the Left Cares About Benghazi

Letter to Right-Wingers: Why No One on the Left Cares About Benghazi

Skewed News — Today is day one of the House Select Committee on Benghazi’s questioning of Hillary Rodham Clinton. I have news for my Republican friends: nothing that happens today or later this week will change the fact that no one on the left cares about Benghazi. 35% of Americans don’t even know what Benghazi is. Liberal disinterest in assigning […]

Corrupted by Obama, Joe Biden Drops Out Before Running

Corrupted by Obama, Joe Biden Drops Out Before Running

Skewed News — Biden isn’t running. Good. Not that he couldn’t have made a good president. The vice president certainly would have been better than Obama, on every front: more legislative experience, a big vision for policy, a natural, undeniable warmth, a love of people you just don’t see in Obama (nicknamed Spock by New York Times columnist-snarkmaster Maureen Dowd). […]

Democratic Debate Postmortem: Hillary Attacks, Bernie Surprised

Skewed News — She came to destroy Bernie. Hillary Clinton’s polls have been sliding for months — ground she has lost mostly to the Vermont Senator’s populist attacks on “the billionaire class” he points out has scooped up most of the income resulting from productivity gains over the last 40 years. At last night’s first Democratic presidential debate, it quickly […]

It Depends on the Meaning of “Disinvited”: Debbie Wasserman Schultz Backstabs DNC Deputy for Demanding More Democracy, Resorts to Orwellian Attack on English Language

It Depends on the Meaning of “Disinvited”: Debbie Wasserman Schultz Backstabs DNC Deputy for Demanding More Democracy, Resorts to Orwellian Attack on English Language

Skewed News —  Remember when words meant what they mean? Yeah, me neither. Still, it’d be nice to live in such a country. Leading today’s political news is a story that would define the word “banal” (if it meant banal) if not for its role in further unmasking the thoroughly undemocratic Democratic Party in our undemocratic system. The vice chairman […]

Hillary Was Against TPP Trade Agreement Before She Was (Just Now) Against It

Skewed News — “Looking forward, it seems far better to co-opt the spirit of Bernie’s message than to attack him,” David Axelrod, Obama’s old political strategist, counseled Hillary Clinton recently. “Better to be a champion for fairness and opportunity, and tackle the issue of how to raise wages in a country where they have effectively flatlined for decades, than to […]

Old Candidate Takes Heat for Old Essay in Old Media

Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders, 73, is being grilled over a controversial essay he wrote for an alternative weekly newspaper called the Vermont Freeman back in 1972: 43 years ago. If they’re going to drag stuff out of politicians’ pasts, why not focus on what’s important?
