Boebert’s lead could be torpedoed by signature cures

CNN reported Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) led by 1,122 votes on Friday afternoon, November 11, 2022, and the Associated Press said 99% of the ballots have been counted, which appeared to put an upset by Democratic challenger Adam Frisch out of reach. On Monday, November 14, Newsweek reported (here) th[...]

What a stupid idea!

Publishing — whether print or pixels — is a business, and needs readers, so they create crime waves, do stories on politicians (the more obnoxious, the better), and run pieces by pundits (the more idiotic, the better). I do it, too, by leaving up Steve’s utterly ridiculous satirica[...]

Dead legislator re-elected by a landslide

Don’t believe rumors that dead Democratic voters elected a dead Democratic candidate. Only half of that story is true. The voters were alive. Tony DeLuca, 85, a longtime Pennsylvania legislator who died a month before the election, won 86% of the vote against a Green Party candidate. It’[...]

“Wall Street should not be any family’s landlord”

Wall Street profiteers crashed the housing market with subprime snake oil, then scooped up vast numbers of single-family homes (SFRs) at foreclosure prices, and now they’re gouging tenants with exorbitant rents. High shelter costs are a major component of the inflation now ravaging ordinary wo[...]

Poll shows Americans frustrated with both parties

A Pew Research poll conducted just before the 2022 midterm elections shows both political parties are unpopular. The GOP is viewed unfavorably by 61% of U.S. adults, the Democrats by 57%, with 25% rejecting both parties, up from 6% in 1994. And over half want to see a new party formed. These results[...]

Did this Democratic candidate lie about his biography?

The Everett Herald reversed its endorsement of a Democratic legislative candidate less than a week before the 2022 elections “after the paper said it found ‘serious misrepresentations’ in the candidate’s work history,” Seattle TV station KING 5 reported on Wednesday, Novemb[...]

Surveillance video explodes rightwing Pelosi lie

The lie goes like this: “Paul Pelosi and the man who attacked him were gay lovers who had gotten into a fight.” Republicans parted company with truth long ago and no sensible person believes them anymore. I’ll debunk this conspiracy theory anyway, not least because Trump embraced it (pun i[...]

Can “leftists” be Christians?

Depends on what is meant by “leftists.” Derrick Van Orden, 53, a former Navy SEAL, likely will be elected to Congress from Wisconsin this fall. He’s running for an open seat that leans Republican in current polls; the incumbent, Ron Kind (D-WI), is retiring. Van Orden stirred contr[...]

What should voters deem disqualifying?

To be clear, I’m not talking about constitutional or legal disqualification, but rather suggesting that voters shouldn’t vote for candidates with certain characteristics, which I’ll get to, regardless of their party or policy positions. Criminals, for one. A record of dishonesty an[...]
