Tweet Follow me The good news as Wall Street gives a thumbs-down to the “No taxes, No jobs” deficit-ceiling-deal (with its built-in automatic spending cuts virtually certain to kick in amid more Congressional gridlock) is that U.S. crude oil futures ended Thursday at $86.63 a barrel in New York — down $5.30! The bad news is that...

Tweet Follow me Not in 2012. The debate last night showed there’s still room for national-caliber candidates, which is probably why Ambassador Huntsman is set to jump in. While Huntsman comes as no surprise to pundits, he needs the national exposure now if he’s to have name recognition to run for 2016. And that’s what last night...

Tweet Follow me The GOP majority in the MN state legislature invited controversial “Reverend” Bradlee Dean, who advocates the killing and or incarceration of gays, to make the opening “prayer” for today’s session. Dressed in a track-suit, Dean used the time to question the religious affiliation of U.S. President Barack...

Tweet Follow me The activist Professor Cornel West has goals and agendas that are, at best, only partially apparent to the rest of us despite his academic prominence and countless interviews; it’s reasonable to assume that his priorities and tactics fluctuate dynamically.   Editor, journalist, entrepreneur, political consultant, photographer,...

Tweet Follow me Editor, journalist, political consultant, and former Congressional Campaign Manager Thomas Hayes According to Reuters, the Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives, John Behner, is becoming a target for Tea Partiers who may resort to “primary” challenges for Republicans who have failed to adhere to absolute ideals...

Tweet Follow me Did you know Dick Armey makes $500,000 per year to lead the allegedly leaderless, so-called grassroots Tea Party? Add this to the Koch Brothers insinuating themselves into control of faculty appointments at colleges and universities in the United States and you have to wonder just what’s up on the extreme fringes of the right. The...

Tweet Follow me I think it’s safe to assume that there will remain a certain non-trivial segment of the electorate that isn’t so much “for” anything as they are, to put it in plain words, “against President Obama.” Their numbers will fluctuate some, and their fervor (which is to say, willingness to make noise)...

Tweet Follow me Following wildly enthusiastic reviews for the World Premiere at the Full Frame Film Fest last weekend, “The Loving Story” has made the Daily Beast’s list of Hottest Films of Tribeca 2011 in New York City this week… check out their entire list! Tribeca features awards for independent films in six (6) categories: World...

Tweet Follow me The extraction, transport, processing, and combustion of coal, the predominant fuel on the planet for electricity generation including roughly 50% of the electricity in the U.S., also creates multiple hazards for human and environmental health — external costs downplayed by the champions of coal. According to a study published...

Tweet Follow me April 15th marks the world premiere of a moving documentary of the famous case of Mildred and Richard Loving a landmark civil rights struggle resolved in 1967 by the United States Supreme Court declaring Virginia’s anti-miscegenation statute – which had been used to arrest the Lovings – unconstitutional. The Elisabeth...

Tweet Follow me The President made a compelling case for his vision of the future of the United States, putting the GOP on notice that he is committed to the quality of life for every citizen. The debate over deficits and the federal budget, he said, is about more than just cutting and spending, characterizing the conversation as about the kind of...

Tweet Follow me Democrats took a shellacking, and it’s partly my fault — not because I took time away from journalism to help manage a Congressional Campaign against an incumbent Republican in Minnesota’s Second Congressional District, rather because I failed to engage more people in the process. Look, both major parties have a collection...

Tweet Follow me According to the campaign spokesman of former MN State Representative Shelley Madore, currently running for Congress in Minnesota’s Second District, they received a formal response Monday from GOP incumbent Congressman John Kline (R-MN) rejecting an opportunity to debate her in front of a live audience in the Second Congressional...

Tweet Follow me As Steve Krakauer of Mediaite explains, Keith Olberman caught Glenn Beck’s “white lie” told to the crowd at the August 28th rally: …he didn’t actually hold George Washington’s first inaugural address. He just had it held in front of him. Beck’s discussion on his show, admitting the lie, seeks to make...

Tweet Follow me Congressman John Kline (R-MN) was conspicuously absent from the Goodhue County United Veterans Organizations “Candidate’s Forum” in his district last night. The forum was not far from where Kline has made his home since relocating from Texas. Do you suppose he didn’t want to have to explain the disconnect between...

Tweet Follow me Republican incumbent John Kline’s getting worried in Minnesota’s Second District, because with all eyes on the Bachmann race, a pro-business Democrat, former MN State Representative Shelley Madore, has a message that resonates with fiscally conservative voters. Madore, recently endorsed by Clean Water Action, ascribes...

Tweet Follow me Many of the pundits and commentators have been speculating, uttering for public consumption variations on a disingenuous theme: the Tea Party threatens to undermine the grand old Republican party. Are you falling for it? Nothing could lead you further from the truth. Ask what motivates those who echo this “conventional wisdom” In...

Tweet Follow me You’ve probably seen recent stories that over 40% of Republicans — or an even higher fraction of Tea Partiers — think the current President wasn’t born in this country. You may also have heard Rush Limbaugh talking about what the people surveyed think in dramatic (or even bombastic) terms. It’s spin. Here’s...

Tweet Follow me Former U.S. Representative David Stockman (R-MI), who served as Ronald Reagan’s first director of the Office of Management and Budget, used the forum of the Sunday New York Times to unmask and rebuke Republican members of Congress and their elite messaging strategists who cling to claims to be fiscal conservatives. “Mr....

Tweet Follow me A topless First Lady? While it’s arguably inappropriate, sexist objectification of his spouse to bolster his career when lame-duck MN Governor Pawlenty describes her as his “red-hot smoking wife,” I disagree with Wonkette’s characterization that it’s “two years early.” If Obama hadn’t started early he might...
