This story of naked racist white power should be from the 1870s. That it’s from the current governor of Georgia shows how sick today’s G.O.P. leadership (not you, dear moderate Republican reader) has become.
Executive summary, from Fair Fight:
The story of the Quitman 10+2 seems almost a caricature in revealing America’s […]
But first, updating Tuesday’s post, two powerful minutes on why Gloria should perhaps NOT boycott organic food. She could eliminate synthetic chemical pesticides from her system. (Not known, she would argue: the effect of natural chemical pesticides used to replace them.) [UPDATE: Turns out, Gloria’s right: It’s not so simple. The maker of that […]
Seven years ago, Toni Morrison — who died Monday night — sat on my couch.
Being incorrigible, I turned it into a fundraising email.
It’s interesting to see what’s changed since 2012 — and what hasn’t.
(The only thing I’ve changed are the links to our fund-raising page, in case you are of a mind […]
She’s against it:
Not to beat the issue to death, but here’s a Food Network program where they explored the issue of food waste — five 2- and 3-minute videos, all worth watching. [Don’t miss the first one: […]
Take six minutes to watch Friday’s “last word,” on the subject of presidential debates.
And perhaps consider setting up your DVR to record Lawrence O’Donnell every night (right after Rachel Maddow on MSNBC) or add The Last Word With Lawrence O’Donnell to your list of podcasts. (I often listen to him and/or Rachel […]
Days ago, the Republicans blocked bills requiring paper ballots (and FBI notification when a campaign is approached by a foreign entity) . . . despite proof the Russians hacked all 50 of our state election systems in 2016.
The 64,000 Ruble Question: Whom do YOU more trust to have your family’s well-being at heart:
Meanwhile, as you contemplate the health care debate, don’t miss the big picture: Fighting against universal health care is in the Republican DNA. Reagan led the charge; Republican governors — refusing to accept federal Medicaid expansion funds — carry it on to this day. We are the only […]
Stop the Knee-Jerk Liberalism, argues Nick Kristoff. He could not be more right.
Likewise, Thomas Friedman’s widely circulated column (well worth reading in full):
. . . Dear Democrats: This is not complicated! Just nominate a decent, sane person, one committed to reunifying the country and creating more good jobs, a person […]

Mitch McConnell is a Russian asset.
This doesn’t mean he’s a spy, but neither is it a flip accusation. Russia attacked our country in 2016. It is attacking us today. Its attacks will intensify in 2020. Yet each […]
Paul Abrams: “The British just made Boris Johnson Prime Minister. They have BoJo, we have Bozo, and Putin has them both.”
The American Century ended January 20, 2017, when judo-master Vladimir Putin installed an ignorant fascist sociopath to lead the free world. We’re fast losing our democracy. The habitability of the planet is […]
