Better than the Zombie Liar

Better than the Zombie Liar

Marty’s photo of the day #2352: I was going through my photos, trying to come up with something scary to post today, but now that we have a Zombie Liar in the White House, it’s hard to come up with anything creepier. Eventually I came across this leaf mimic katydid from the Amazon Rainforest. It’s […]

Baby Howler Monkey

Marty’s photo of the day #2282: Alas, it’s another Monday and we still have an incompetent white supremacist in the White House. I know. It’s depressing. So here’s a baby howler monkey to brighten your day.

The Republican Thought Police Have Arrived

The Republican Thought Police Have Arrived

Madonna (Women’s March 1/21/17): “Yes, I’m angry. Yes, I am outraged. Yes, I have thought an awful lot of blowing up the White House, but I know that this won’t change anything. We cannot fall into despair. As the poet, W.H. Auden once wrote on the eve of World War II: We must love one […]

President Obama: Savoring his last six months in office

Marty’s photo of the day #1862: As I watched President Obama’s speech last night, I couldn’t help thinking: “He’s the Democrat’s Reagan.” The big difference, of course, is that the Republican version of Ronald Reagan’s history is, shall we say, mostly fiction. In fact, we are still dealing with the severe damage done to our […]

The best candidate “debate” format ever!

The best candidate “debate” format ever!

Last night’s Democratic Presidential Forum on MSNBC was a gem. Of all the “debate” formats, I liked this one the best. Instead of candidates talking over one another, Rachel Maddow’s sit-downs with each candidate made it easier for voters to get to know each one. Usually about this time in an election cycle, I have […]
