Chris Matthews Weakly Acknowledges Glaring Bush Funeral Screw-Up 8.12.2018 Crooks Liars
Many of us were rage-tweeting and writing (present company included) about Chris Matthews' unfair and inaccurate characterization of Hillary Clinton's and Jimmy Carter's alleged stand-offishness with one another at George H.W. Bush's funeral service. Most of us saw it as a continuation of Matthews' palpable derision and dislike for Hillary Clinton - looking for any way possible to get in a dig at the former Democratic Presidential Nominee, Secretary of State, Senator from New York, and First Lady. Astute Tweeter @MikeMitchellNYC called his bullsh!t with visual evidence, and you know the rest. Last night, on his "Let Me Finish" segment, he corrected himself. Sort of. (Can we discuss how he has a segment entitled "Let Me Finish," when his signature journalistic move is to talk over/interrupt people — especially women? Okay, another time.) Anyway, my Spidey Sense tells me Matthews knew he totally stepped in it again, and had some cleaning up to do. So, in this closing segment last night, he discussed the ...

Women Bolster the Democrats’ Midwestern Prospects 31.10.2018 American Prospect
Meet Nicole Breadon. She’s 46, a lifelong resident of Clarkston, a town of fewer than 1,000 that’s become one of Detroit’s distant exurbs. Her husband Todd grew up in Clarkston, too. Breadon, a sous chef, left her job six years ago to spend more time with her two sons, both special needs children. She’s also an archetype of lasting change in Michigan Democratic politics. “I wasn’t politically active before Trump’s election, but afterwards I felt I had to fight,” Breadon says. “I was concerned that because of him—and especially Betsy DeVos—my children and other kids in the special education system wouldn’t receive the services they need.”  Paying careful attention to Trump’s post-election pronouncements and appointments, in mid-January, 2017 Breadon joined the North Oakland County Democratic Club.  Then, only a few days later, came an event that left a lasting impression on Breadon: the January 21 Women’s March. She took part in the March on the Michigan Capitol in Lansing, one of the many local offshoots ...

Hell Freezes Over As Fox Forced To Air Clip Of Hillary Clinton Without Attacking Her 24.10.2018 Crooks Liars
Fox "news" was forced to take a pause from their constant fearmongering over the caravan of Honduran migrants to cover the slew of bombs delivered to Democrats across the country today, and they also did the unthinkable and aired a clip of Hillary Clinton's response without attacking her, for once. Here are some of Clinton's remarks as reported by Business Insider: Hillary Clinton addresses attempted attack, says 'as an American I am worried' : Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on Wednesday said that "as an American" she is "worried" after an explosive device was sent to her New York home. Speaking at a fundraiser in Florida, Clinton expressed gratitude to the US Secret Service. "We are fine thanks to the men and women of the Secret Service who intercepted the package addressed to us long before it made its way to our home," Clinton said. "Everyday we are grateful for their service and commitment and obviously, never more than today." The former Democratic presidential nominee added, "But it is a ...
