Remember, please, who REALLY won the House

Dems got more votes, Reps got more seats because of gerrymandering in states. Hopeless lush Boehner has no standing.

The Antidote to Limbaugh

That wold be Nor-MAN Gold-MAN, whose nationally syndicated radio show occasionally features yours truly as Senior Media Analyst. If you have a local progressive radio outlet, do check out Stormin’ Norman

The One Must-Read Gun Piece This Month

SF Gate’s Mark Morford pretty much says it all here — and says it well:

Back Again, as NRA Reloads

Guns are a national sickness, and Wayne LaPierre has blood on his hands. I hear the NRA is starting a new magazine soon, “Schoolyard Shooting Enthusiast.”  Good luck with that.

Watch this space.

A good nickname for Mitt’s campaign bus

Courtesy Lawrence O’Donnell:

We’re back!

You have to take a break from decent people — Canadians –once in awhile to cover the treasonous GOP slime balls, and I will. It’s weasel season once more!

On the Canada beat, eh?

We’re now doing a Canada blog at Dow Jones’ MarketWatch site. Please check it out.

Canadians are a lot more interesting — and a lot less infuriating — than the denizens of the D.C. swamp.

That’s what Washington has become, sadly.

Time to drain the swamp.

Roy Cohn would feel right at home in the GOP caucus.

Dionne: GOP Blatantly Lying About Reconciliation

Hard to believe these weasly little bastards are lying about Obama using reconcilitaion, isn’t it?

The Washington Post’s E.J. Dionne, like Rachel Maddow, minces no words: They’re outright liars.

Not to mention being scumbags as well.
