WaPo report: razor-thin Clinton “edge” even in 50-state hand-picked poll






WaPo headline reverses the story My morning paper on September 7 had an unusual feature. The 9-16ths-inch headline on The Washington Post’s front page trumpeted, “Clinton has edge in 50-state poll.” Inside, a special pull-out section on “CAMPAIGN 2016” seemed to expand the story. Actually, it contradicted the headline. Let’s start with the easy part–pictures. This parti-colored Read More

Hillary Clinton about 2008: “Eventually I just decided I had to withdraw”

Defeat amnesia: More on Hillary Clinton comments in 2008






More on Hillary Clinton in 2008– The previous blog (Friday, April 15) was a reminder of Senator Hillary Clinton’s 2008 comments on assassination. Specifically, she instanced as the reason for her staying in the 2008 race the assassination of Robert F. Kennedy in June 1968. As a parallel to the effect of that tragic event Read More

Dewey Beats Truman, again –Wrong predictions on health care






DEWEY BEATS TRUMAN, AGAIN! 2012 wrong predictions on health care “Surely, as there are mountebanks for the natural body, so are there mountebanks for the politic body; men that undertake great cures, and perhaps have been lucky, in two or three experiments, but want the grounds of science, and therefore cannot hold out. . . So Read More

The more things don’t change: Prufrockian candidates for a played-out Wall Street-owned GOP






The more things don’t change Recycling old political talent is the special province of Wall Street defenders and apologists, and we’ve been seeing a lot of it since November 2008.

“An avowed Muslim . . . get him out of our government”






More lying in Republican circles in Florida, and some of it probably naive. Woman in Rick Santorum’s audience just said the president is “an avowed Muslim.” Her question: “why isn’t anything being done to get him out of our government?” N.b. the MSNBC caption missed/omitted the “our” part. Santorum, a senator, did not correct her. Read More
