The New Yorker’s Ronan Farrow reports that Democrats are investigating a story from one of Brett Kavanaugh’s freshman classmates at Yale classmate with sketchy memories of a sexually-charged party game.

Horrible GOP Candidates Show Party Is Dying

Filed in National by on September 23, 2018 6 Comments

Delaware Republicans have been shocked white — well, whiter — by the antics of their congressional nominee, but Scott Walker isn’t an isolated situation. All over the country, GOP candidates, most of them already officeholders, are being exposed as execrable human beings. I’m not talking about the garden-variety graft that goes on in both parties, […]

A first. This song will be reprised on my Fave Tunes Of The Month list.  But it fits the Ford/Kavanaugh controversy so perfectly, it would have been musical malpractice to exclude it:

It should tell you something about this country’s politics that the three most likely destinations for people with mental problems are the nuthouse, the big house and the statehouse. Russell “Scott” Walker is trying for the latter, but he’ll have to do it with no help from the state GOP, which took the unprecedented step […]

Filed in National by on September 22, 2018 1 Comment

When the Kav-n-paw allegations broke I knew, eventually, this was going to be a GOP line of defense: “Again, it was supposedly an attempt or something that never went anywhere. So you just have to wonder.” Is attempted rape even a crime for GOPer’s? Of course not. The answer is right there in the accusation.. […]

U.S. Sen. Tom Carper’s decades-old spousal abuse controversy was resurrected Thursday by President Donald Trump’s oldest son. “You admitted to hitting your wife so hard it gave her a black eye,” Donald Trump Jr. wrote in a tweet he later retweeted. Trump Jr. was referring to an incident in the early 1980s in which Carper […]

Filed in National by on September 22, 2018 0 Comments

Electronica usually isn’t my thing, but there are exceptions, especially if there are vocals to humanize the music. Especially female vocals. So I fell hard for Sylvan Esso the first time I ever heard their breakout song, “Coffee”, on WXPN when it came out in 2013. The song has an interesting official video, but the […]

Most of the richies Trump assembled into a cabinet either inherited their money, like DeVos, or stole it, like Wilbur Ross. (Those who had no money to start with, like […]

Sexual assault allegations about Brett Kavanaugh continue to reveal the uglier side of Republicans, who can’t seem to stop themselves from maligning the woman who raised them. Keep in mind, these people, just like the rest of us, cannot know what happened at a high school party 30-odd years ago. But none of them, from […]
