MythBusting #11 – Benghazi

MythBusting #11 – Benghazi

Disclaimer: There’s still a lot we don’t know about the events in Libya that led to the deaths of four US citizens. As such, I expect to be revising this piece as more complete and detailed information comes in. This piece came about at the request of one of our …Wait! Don’t stop there!

Myth Busting #10 – Obama Hasn’t Submitted A Budget!

Myth Busting #10 – Obama Hasn’t Submitted A Budget!

This is a great, commonly spouted talking point from the right, that supposedly demonstrates Obama’s criminal negligence when it comes to performing his duties. The problem, of course, is that like most things conservatives say, it’s not true, and PROVED not true with the most minimal of fact checking. Here …Wait! Don’t stop there!

Another example of “fact” vs. FACT

Another example of “fact” vs. FACT

So I was lurking in one of my regular news listening posts to take the Conservative Temperature, and apparently the latest thing from the conservative spin cycle revolves around this page, by politifact. You see!? The scream triumphantly. ‘The One,’ has only kept a paltry 37% of his promises! He’s …Wait! Don’t stop there!

Why Conservatives Claim to Hate Government

Why Conservatives Claim to Hate Government

I chose the words in my title carefully, because clearly…obviously, conservatives do not hate government. At least not the ones that get elected to office. Oh sure, they hate taxes, and gleefully get behind Grover Norquist to sign his pledge, and you hear rumblings from “The Base” on the right …Wait! Don’t stop there!

The Democrats Formally Support Gay Marriage

The Democrats Formally Support Gay Marriage

Wow…so there’s been a lot of activity swirling around while I’ve been away! Sorry for that, by the way…working for myself sometimes takes me off in different directions, and over the past week, I’ve been doing work for a large client that pulled me away from here. Back now, and …Wait! Don’t stop there!

Well…Is He?

Well…Is He?

Newsweek is running a “Romney-as-Wimp” cover and lead story in their magazine this week, and it’s causing quite a stir. The article, found here, is by Michael Tomasky. Over the next four pages, Tomasky succeeds fairly well in painting Mitt Romney in a bad light. He is less successful at …Wait! Don’t stop there!

Move Along…Nothing To See Here…

Move Along…Nothing To See Here…

Had a hectic few days doing client work that pulled me away from blogging. Back now though, and ready to continue! One of the more popular refrains from the right these days is that when Democrats (or liberals, or progressives–remember, all of these are synonyms in the language of the …Wait! Don’t stop there!

Myth Busting #8 – D-PIM (Death Panels & the Individual Mandate)

Myth Busting #8 – D-PIM (Death Panels & the Individual Mandate)

Since it’s not possible to prove a negative, I am unable to “prove” that death panels don’t exist, except to point out that having read the entire law (a process that took about two weeks, and is highly recommended if you suffer from insomnia), I find no references to Death …Wait!

Myth Busting #7 – Republicans Are Better for The Economy!

Myth Busting #7 – Republicans Are Better for The Economy!

Mirror, Mirror, On the Wall, Which Party is the Best Job Creator Of Them All? Recently, folks on the left have been posting an impressive statistic re: job creation numbers by administration, showing the Democrats as clearly superior in this regard to Republican administrations. The republicans (rightly) point out that …Wait! Don’t stop there!

Stupid Is As Stupid Does

Stupid Is As Stupid Does

Yeeeehaw! The video clip below is simply too good to pass on. It underscores just how deep the ignorance runs on the right. Yes, it’s partisan. Yes, it’s biased (for every ignorant hick like this you find in Mississippi, Louisiana, or South Carolina, you’re apt to find a well spoken …Wait! Don’t stop there!
