Rep. Allyson Schwartz Joins Me Tomorrow on Air America Radio.


Gov. Mario Cuomo Joins Me on Air America at 1:05 p.m. e.t. Today.

Gov. Mario Cuomo joins me today on Air America Radio and airamerica.com at 1:05 p.m. e.s.t. today.   I still remember reading an article he wrote about the importance of speaking.  At the time, there weren't very many, politiians included, who seemed to understand it.  There was one newly elected Senator from Illinois who did - Barack Obama.

This promises to be quite a conversation.  Hope you can join me. 


Rush a Closeted Liberal Lackey! 

Yesterday, Rush Limbaugh claimed that the swastika painted on a Democratic Congressman's sign in Georgia was painted by "some democratic lackey."  Well, it got me thinking. 

If the purpose was to raise anger and passion in other democrats, then doesn't it make sense that Rush is actually the biggest liberal lackey of all? I mean, down deep, do you think this is what he really is trying to accomplish?  He is just putting on the airs to drive progressives.  Imagine the insanity this would cause in the lunatic, wingnut world of Fix News.

Maybe that hillbilly heroin is necessary to help numb him from all of the hate he is required to spew on a daily basis.  Just maybe . . .

On This Day, President Obama Was Born in . . . 

What an extraordinary story. And I love the conspiracy possibilities. Now let me gets this right. On this day in 1961, a boy was secretly born in a hospital in Kenya.  The boy's mother then snuck him into the U.S. not because she wanted him to be an American citizen, his mom was so he would be, but rather because the master plan for him to be President required his being born on U.S. soil.  While this would ni itself be an extraordinary fete, it would sadly not be enough to pull off the conspiracy. More was needed. But she was ready!

So, dear old mom had to convince not one but two newspapers in Honolulu to announce the birth of Barack Hussein Obama in Honolulu.  Again, this was necessary in order to provide an additional paper trail. After all, when this kid from Kenya with no connections or pedigree would become President, she knew questions would be asked and she had to be ready. Right?

After that .. . nothing.  Just sit back.  Relax.  And wait.  And let the plan take its course.

By the way, according to a study released by Research 2000, 28% of GOP thinks this was the case and another 30% aren't sure. Beautiful.

Yeah. Fantastic. Let the Tin Hat Brigade battle on. Go Birthers Go!  Go GOP!  Quite the Grand Old Party!

So, this is for you GOP!  Heri ya Siku kuu, Mr. President.   Ahhh.  That feels good!


Jack Scheduled to Appear on MSNBC.

Hope you have a chance to watch.
