Rachel Maddow: Scott Brown parody commercial

Politicians are known to be willing to say and do anything to get elected.  In my opinion, the right has elevated this characteristic of public office to new heights.  No lie is absurd enough, no premise empty enough to resist … Continue reading

My wife teaches elementary school. Through the years, she’s regaled me with descriptions and anecdotes of 1st and 2nd graders, who tend to speak with few filters. Yesterday was no exception. Continue reading

GOP Health Care Plan: “Don’t Get Sick”

Friday Night Concert Clip: Blue Man Group/Tracy Bonham

If you’ve never seen the Blue Man Group live, you’ve missed one of the most entertaining nights of your life.

The King of Pop garnered round the clock coverage, shrines, platitudes, documentaries and live coverage. He was homilized and eulogized. The King of “Call Now?” Not so much…even though it would be fair to say that Michael Jackson’s negative publicity regarding pedophilia court proceedings aside, Billy Mays spent more time on TV than Jacko in the last decade, in death, he’s a mere dimple in Jacko’s chin.
