Wisconsin US Senate Seat Race 2012 – The Republicans

Wednesday, May 18th, 2011

Herb Kohl recently announced that he would not be seeking a fifth term as the senior Wisconsin US Senator. This scares us, but not in the way you’d think. We’re not worried about the upcoming election to fill his vacant Senate seat – we’re worried about the fact that for at least two years, Ron […]

Donald Trump Not Running For President is His Greatest Act of Cowardice

Tuesday, May 17th, 2011

We had announced on Facebook earlier that we would be doing a post today on Herb Kohl’s decision to retire and vacate his US Senate seat in 2012, but some breaking news happened that we predicted several times – real estate mogul Donald Trump had decided that he will not run for president in 2012. […]

Huckabee Not Running, Hands Nomination to Romney

Sunday, May 15th, 2011

Not too long ago, we predicted the race for the 2012 Republican nomination for President would be a close contest between Mitt Romney and Mike Huckabee. Yesterday, that race became a one man show. Mike Huckabee announced that he would not vie for the Republican’s bid to the 2012 Presidential election. Huckabee made the decision […]

Since When Did Politicans Become so Corrupt?

Saturday, May 14th, 2011

We got a lot of laughs when we talked to some of our friends about tonight’s topic. Some of our favorite answers were “Since the dawn of time,” “Since they came out of the womb,” and “Since when have they ever not been corrupt?” And yet, many people think of the good old days of […]

Since When Did We Become So Politically Polarized?

Thursday, May 12th, 2011

Quick – name a news talk show on any TV network. Chances are you came up with one of three answers – The O’Riley Factor, Countdown (aka the Keith Olbermann show, as he likes to call it), or Anderson Cooper 360 (Runners-up: Glenn Beck and Rachel Maddow). Kudos to you if you chose Cooper, but […]

Since When Did We Become So Mistrusting of the Government?

Tuesday, May 10th, 2011

“Suppose you were an idiot, and suppose you were a member of Congress; but I repeat myself.” – Sam Clemens (aka Mark Twain) Let’s be honest, politicians don’t exactly get the best rap for being the most honest and trustworthy people on the planet. In fact, while it’s big news if the president’s approval rating […]

Why Donald Trump Just Doesn’t Get It

Monday, May 9th, 2011

Everyone has a favorite TV show they love to watch. Most of us (our writer included) have several (and probably several more than they should). When it first came out, our writer really enjoyed watching The Apprentice. Maybe it was because he had several friends who were majoring in Business Administration or Marketing, but the […]

Michelle Obama – A Mother’s Day Profile

Monday, May 9th, 2011

Seeing as how today (actually yesterday at this point, but who’s really counting?) is a celebration of all the wonderful things mothers do for their families and their nation, we would be remiss if we didn’t do a post on America’s current most famous mother – the First Lady of the Unites States of America […]

Osama bin Laden’s Death Photo – Should it be Released?

Thursday, May 5th, 2011

A couple days ago, we made a joke about how some people didn’t believe Osama bin Laden (OBL) was dead because Obama hadn’t released a photograph of it yet. Apparently, those people didn’t laugh like they were supposed to. They’re officially called “Deathers”, an obvious transition from the “Birther” movement that was finally put to […]

Osama, Obama and Pakistan – What’s the US Response to Pakistan Post-OBL?

Thursday, May 5th, 2011

All this week (or at least for the foreseeable future) we’re going to be covering Osama bin Laden’s (OBL) death and what it means to Progressives, Americans and the rest of the world. As you all know by now, OBL was killed living in a fortified structure in Pakistan. Pakistan isn’t like Afghanistan was in […]
