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…

We have featured The Iveys before to a very good reader reaction. The band members are the cousins of LI reader, photographer (also, here, here) and West Texas correspondent Danelle, who also happens to be one of the first to email me whenever I get a national media reference, usually in real time.

I know a woman who immediately covers her ears when the topic gets to Obama and what he’s done wrong and what he hasn’t done right.  She doesn’t believe any of the things she accidentally overhears and accuses me of making it up.  “Where do you get your news from?” I…

No wonder Obama supporters upset at Jim Lehrer

Posted by
10/8/2012 at 1:58pm
Jim Lehrer has come under fire after his perhaps overly relaxed approach to moderating during last week’s presidential debate. It turns out that Lehrer has been advocating the “slow listening” interview technique for some time, and in this case it worked just as planned, permitting the candidates to rise (Romney) or fall…

I posted yesterday about the race between David Cicilline (D RI-01) and Republican Brendan Doherty. Cicilline has managed to pull into a small lead because of an over-the-top Mediscare campaign and faded memories of Cicilline’s cover-up of Providence’s financial disaster. The Doherty campaign has just launched a new commercial reminding the public of…
