Kinder, Gentler Neotribalism

Unicorns, not wives, rule. The 19th amendment puzzles pollsters because wives follow husbands.  Hillary did (to Arkansas).  Wives don’t lead husbands, supposedly. And there is no city of women in New Hampshire or California. But not anymore, as the GOP is going … Continue reading

Gun-Toting Rivals + Is HC a Feminist but Not an Intersectionalist? Or is HC Not Really Human?

Take a look at Renee Ellmers’s opposition. Kay Ryon Daly is running against the Honorable Renee Ellmers in North Carolina’s 2nd congressional district. Not only is she pro-gun (obviously, and undoubtedly not an issue that divides their two candidacies), but … Continue reading

Can Jon be Replaced?

Dunno.  Even though Jon Stewart is leaving the Daily Show because, as he explains it, he is “slightly restless” — this does not resonate in any authentic way with me. And even if it is true (or should I say also … Continue reading

POOR LITTLE RICH COUNTRIES – OBAMA’S LEGACY IN CHINA

  Nothing better than international political/economic intrigue triangulations composed by David E. Sanger to get one’s imagination going. The U.S., Germany, and Israel competing with and for China! I visualize Brad Pitt as one of the protagonists.   Nothing worse … Continue reading

Can Rubio Land a Punch that Harms Obama?

Will Florida senator Marco Rubio land a punch on Obama that hurts? It’s true: African-Americans cannot get angry. And if they do, they’d better apologize lickety-split. Rubio is sure trying to pick a fight with Obama . . . Continue reading Continue reading

Obama’s Ping-Pong Paddle Presidency of Executive Action

Whack, whack, whack. Hear the sound of Obama’s textbook executive actions paddling all the politicians who are sabotaging his administration. Now, Obama was unable to use the threat of executive action very effectively, so he’s not practicing the ping-pong paddle justice that my mother wielded more effectively (i.e. the threat, not the use, of this power). . . .
