As it happens I think both Sarah Palin and Tom Brokaw have a point about how glittery, celebrity-obsessed and overly-cozy the annual White House Correspondents Association dinner has become.
Nonetheless President Obama did his annual shtick at the event last night.
The bit toward the end about the new Spielberg film “Obama” starring Daniel Day-Lewis is pretty [...]
Alex Jones of Info Wars is struggling to develop a vaguely plausible conspiracy theory for the Boston Marathon bombings says Alex Seitz-Wald:
The basic outline is the same as all of his projects: A globalist cabal working through the U.S. government staged a “false flag” operation that will be blamed on terrorists as pretext to take [...]
Something a bit lighter, a Loose Change parody.

As you watch this informative colloquy on “gun rights” between CNN’s Piers Morgan and professional wingnut Alex Jones, keep in mind that Jones once got George Galloway to agree that a “false flag” terror attack by the “military-industrial complex,” to be blamed on Iran, was a “very real danger,” and that Jones’s loony website Infowars [...]
For the record, it’s not just the Jew-hating Iranian regime that is propagating bizarre theories about who was really behind the Newtown school massacre.

Martin Sheen, Woody Harrelson and Ed Asner are slated to star in a movie called September Morn.
Styling itself as a drama in the tradition of Twelve Angry Men, the film’s advance publicity note hints at a cover-up, saying: “We the people demand that the government revisit and initiates a thorough and independent investigation to the [...]
We’ve already heard about Kamal Saleem here. He’s the one who claims to be an ex-jihadist and whose terrible revelations of what Islam has in store for the US are lapped up by some on the right in much the same way as Atzmon’s assertions about Israel and ‘Jewish politics’ are by antisemites anti-zionists* on [...]
Charlie Fuqua, Republican candidate for the Arkansas House of Representatives, has some unusual policy suggestions. Particularly bizarre is his apparent support for the idea that rebellious children might, parents willing, be subjected to the death penalty:
Even though this procedure would rarely be used, if it were the law of land, it would give parents authority. [...]
Now that Mitt “No Apology” Romney has conceded President Obama’s and Secretary of State Clinton’s point– that it is possible to be outraged by the violent attacks against US embassies in the Middle East and North Africa while at the same time denouncing the stupid anti-Islamic film that allegedly triggered those attacks– perhaps we can [...]
