Now in his sixth decade as the world’s preeminent expert on U.S. foreign policy, retired Cuban president Fidel Castro writes in his newspaper column (in Cuba) that the Obama Administration is about to attack … Iran. One more war against one more Muslim country can’t make things worse, right? Right? Oh, Iran maybe has nuclear [...]
Remember when Barack Obama was all, “And I will stop having all these wars everywhere”? No? Lately, people have been telling us that he never said anything of the sort, which is kind of funny, haha, because we all believed that was his intention, right? We don’t have five whole minutes to go read Wikipedia [...]
Libya, wherever that is, is costing America $1.1 Billion, just for the summer. At least $716 Million has already been thrown at Libya in the form of bombs. Somewhere, we’ve also got this figure that shows the Obama Administration has spent $2 Billion of the nearly $50 Billion budgeted and set aside to help people [...]
Anything good on the news innerwebs tonight? No? Not at all?
Hey look, the White House’s story changed again! (By next week, we will finally find out bin Laden had become an emo and slit his wrists two days before we got there.) Administration officials said the official account of events has changed over the course of the week because it has taken time to get [...]
First Read: Romney should be glad that Barbour made news yesterday, because his blunder — mistakenly saying that Obama has been engaged in “one of the biggest PEACETIME spending binges in American history” — was an unforced error for the one-term former governor. A Romney spokeswoman later told First Read, “He meant to say since [...]
Hey, Hosni Mubarak is “back” — from Comaland? — and has been detained for questioning by the new and terrible Egyptian military regime (which loves murdering demonstrators and throwing helpless bloggers in jail). And now Mubarak will be forced to answer allegations of widespread corruption, abuse of authority and the killing of protesters during his [...]
Here are just a few reasons why you should move to the Moon as soon as possible: Predictable asshole Scott Walker has threatened to fire public employees if his famous union-busting bill remains tied up in court. Meanwhile, Barack Obama is frantically Zeppelin-bombing brown people all over the world, for Freedom — and our trillion-dollar [...]
We’re drowning in contradictory Twitters and Blogs and Wire Bulletins, so why not just cook up a Friday Night Fights liveblog and see what happens during the super-sexy Washington wrestling match featuring Old Bigot Toady on one side and Ineffective Milquetoast Punching Bag on the other. Hooray for the World of Sport! UPDATE: Reid and [...]
Donald Trump has certainly given a very interesting interview to the Today show, considering he’s going to be our next president of the United States and all! “Let me just say something. There’s nobody more militaristic than me.” Cool! It’s about time we had a president with no experience in politics who is upfront about [...]
Apparently last year’s Koran-burn-threatening pastor Terry Jones decided he wasn’t getting enough attention, so last week he actually did go through with burning itself. Normally a pastor saying hateful things who only has a half dozen or so followers would be ignored, but because we’ve been graced with a thing called the modern news media, [...]
Sometime in the last century, countries that were at least somewhat capable of taking on the United States in war gave up trying. “We’re good. If those guys want to price everyone out of war, let them go ahead. We have other hobbies than making war,” they said. “Like backgammon, or funding terrorists.” So this [...]
Even as President Obama on Monday described a narrower role for the United States in a NATO-led operation in Libya, the American military has been carrying out an expansive and increasingly potent air campaign to compel the Libyan Army to turn against Col. Muammar el-Qaddafi. When the mission was launched, it was largely seen as [...]
He should have stopped at the “uhhhhh.” So Newt was in favor of intervening in Libya, He couldn’t possibly comically completely switch his position once Obama takes his advice, right?
