Before the Election: Some Questions From a Liberal Former Liberal

Posted by
11/4/2012 at 8:30am
I am and always have been a liberal. I was raised to revere the Democratic party and feel contempt for the party of Richard Nixon (as well as the man himself). Democrats, everyone agreed, were freer spirits.  Uptight Republicans, everyone agreed, lighted cigars with hundred-dollar bills they’d stolen from poor people. And…

Tonight hopefully is the last Saturday Night Card Game in the age of Obama. The series started just over three years ago, and has generated almost 150 posts. I look back on this time period with great sadness as to how everything has been turned on its head. Those who now claim the…

As longtime readers know, I was greatly influenced by Abbie Hoffman’s Steal This Book. One of the ways to cheat the Post Office in the book was to address an envelope to yourself, and use the return address for the person you wanted to send it to, without any postage.  That way,…

Posted by

Does it never end? Elizabeth Warren is sticking by her claim that she is Native American despite the mountain of proof otherwise and the near-complete debunking of her family lore.. In this recent interview with a Local ABC affiliate at her home, Warren was asked about whether there was anything reflecting her Native American heritage: I asked Warren…

You’d think that after four years of looking forward to Tuesday, I’d have a master plan for the blog for the day. You’d be wrong. I’m still thinking through what to do, but here’s the current thinking — During the day, have a general “Open” thread, with separate posts as needed.  Not going to use…

I know, I know, Elizabeth Warren supporters don’t care about the truth.  But the truth still matters, and will be preserved at The Elizabeth Warren File regardless of the election result.

It’s nice that in his closing argument Obama has articulated more perfectly than ever before his political philosophy of revenge. While various people are reacting as if Obama has gone off the rails, revenge is Obama’s rail. Dividing Americans into groups and playing each against the other has been Obama’s modus operandi since…

From Jeff: Love your bumper sticker posts, and when I saw this, I knew I had to send it to you. Observed this in traffic in Norfolk, VA; one of the areas that will “decide the election” according to the Examiner (http://washingtonexaminer.com/columbus-des-moines-hampton-roads-will-determine-election/article/2506515#.UEOOi5ZP9GM).
