Elizabeth Warren dare not show the box she checked

Posted by  ▪  October 10, 2012

If Warren released her employment records it likely would destroy her campaign

At the two prior debates, Scott Brown effectively used the line that Elizabeth Warren “checked the box.” As discussed with regard to yesterday’s polling, this is hurting Warren. But so far in the debates no one has mentioned what box Warren checked, and why she doesn’t want to release the records showing that…

If it motivates you, it can’t be that bad

Posted by  ▪  October 10, 2012
Some of us want Obama supporters to cry themselves to sleep on November 6, others just want to wipe the smug grins off their faces. I say, why not both? I don’t know what it is about the “It’s Working, You’re Welcome” sticker that gets under my skin more than most others but it has…

Posted by  ▪  October 9, 2012
High school teacher Debbie Polhemus took her own stand against free speech yesterday when she covered pro-Israel advertisements in a Washington, D.C, metro station with yellow sticky notes.

I really hope someone brings up Big Bird at the next debate

Posted by  ▪  October 9, 2012
It doesn’t particularly matter who does, just as long as he’s mentioned. Perhaps Joe Biden will think he can get a jab in at the Romney campaign for threatening to cut the funding to PBS. Or maybe Paul Ryan will choose to bring it up sua sponte. Either way, I hope it’s brought…

Where the Elite Meet to Swallow Bitter Pills

Posted by  ▪  October 9, 2012
Since the presidential debate last week I’ve been trying to remember where I saw this movie before, as it were—where a man considered a member of the elite, the cognoscenti, whose brilliance is considered by millions of admirers to be self evident and unimpeachable, got his clock thoroughly cleaned by someone…
