Comment on: 'Elizabeth Warren acknowledges telling Harvard, Penn of Native American status'
Posted 05/31/2012 09:49:08 EDT
This is the equivalent to the Obama birther issue. The Right is trying so hard to de-legitimize Elizabeth Warren. They're also trying to energize the anti-affirmative action folks. Note to the editor: more »

Posted 04/28/2012 05:46:27 EDT
Women would not be a bad thing in the secret service, but this whole scandal has been blown way out of proportion. While showing a moral lapse by our standards, they did not endanger the President, no more »

Comment on: Rep. Weiner and the Media - Culture Club blog - Boston.com
Posted 06/07/2011 11:28:12 EDT
Thanks Kara. It's amazing that we're wasting so much ink on someone's fantasy. Even though it's a little bazaar that a rep is sending "inappropriate" photos of himself to strangers, there was no physi more »

Comment on: 'GOP says it'll block bills until tax cuts extended'
Posted 12/01/2010 03:55:01 EST
It's incredible how the conservatives have managed to deceptively frame this argument. If we let the "tax cuts" expire on those making over $250k, what it actually means is increasing the tax rate by more »

Posted 12/01/2010 01:40:01 EST
Unfortunately, the bigots, I mean main principals of the Westboro "Church" are the Phelps family. They're a bunch of lawyers who goat organizations to try to block their hate speech, then sue them for more »

Posted 11/12/2010 02:19:43 EST
President Obama is making sure that all the "i"s are dotted and "t"s are crossed so the rabid right won't make an issue of "activist judges." Most of us see descrimination against military staff with more »

Posted 10/21/2010 04:17:44 EDT

Comment on: 'Source: Judge Sidney Thomas on Supreme Court list'
Posted 04/12/2010 12:02:14 EDT
Hillary would be great. I'd prefer a sharp, young progressive that will be in the seat for the next 4 decades, defending liberal values. We need a progressive at least as skewed to the left as Roberts more »
