Not often that I praise Jane Hamsher, but she is right that S&P improperly has injected itself into the political process:

Standard and Poors is evidently meeting with high-stakes gamblers and letting them know where to place their bets as they manipulate the global economy.

But they are also playing a much more...

Yesterday I posted on Jane Hamsher’s appearance on Fox News to demand defeat of the Senate bill.

Today, Hamsher and Grover Norquist, who runs the conservative Americans for Tax Reform, have issued a joint letter demanding the resignation of Rahm Emanuel, and an investigation into Emanuel’s activities at Freddie Mac before the...
