It just gets worse and worse as November steadily approaches. And then I just saw some Hillary-Clinton-supports-gay-rights-and-isn't-she-wonderful-so-that-makes-it-all-okay poster and my stomach heaved.

I am gradually losing my will to live.

Nomad, I also.

Have you seen that poster (or maybe just a Facebook post) that says, "I love waking up and knowing that Barack Obama is president"? Talk about heaving.

I've been spared that one so far, thankfully. Madness! Madness!

Bruce has cashed out* anyway after winning that silly lawsuit against the SF News, why even pretend anymore?

Much of Bruce's "left wing" politics consists of irrational NIMBYism anyway

*The Guardian has been SOLD. To a BIG MEDIA company to boot!

I think much of the political output has come from (editor) Tim Redmond for years anyway, and he's the model of a captured liberal gatekeeper. The Guardian is a perfect example of form-over-substance, lip-service liberalism: they think they're edgy because they write about hip hop and act like graffiti is not just an art form but a sacrament, yet they line up behind corporate Democrats like clockwork.

Four years, they pass so quickly, it's back to the future.



I can see the fund raiser letter now:

My Dear Liberals,

With Obama’s 2008 election we overcame racism in America, but now we are having negative thoughts about Obama...OMG!...we are marching backwards. How...after four years of really kewl gadget buying, did we edge so close to becoming racist again? HOW DID THIS HAPPEN? We must once again overcome racism in America and vote for Obama! Let's show our friends that we aren’t racist!

Now I know some of you are having doubts, but you loved Obama unconditionally in 2008 didn't you? Sure, Obama's slapped you around a little since then with those repackaged Bush policies, but hey, you know...you wanted it that way! Besides,everybody deserves another chance don't they?

PS One term Presidents get lousy payouts after leaving office...Clinton is up to 80,000,000.00...love him or hate him, don't you want to see Obama get more than Clinton? Vote Obama in 2012 and be proud that it was your vote that helped him get into the .01%. Anything less is racist!

But that is recycled toilet paper after all. Ok then, carry on.

Roberto Unger, Obama's Former Harvard Law School Professor, Says that Obama must lose the election in order for "the voice of democratic prophecy to speak once again in American life." He acknowledged that if a Republican wins the presidency, "there will be a cost ... in judicial and administrative appointments." But he said that "the risk of military adventurism" would be no worse under a Republican than under Obama, and that "the Democratic Party proposes no new direction."


Interesting to read a random Leftist's website. I'm a Leftist too. Hope you post more regularly. Best wishes from London.

John Caruso...You have been downgraded to "random leftist". LOL!

I'm actually a pseudorandom leftist.

Hey! No personal slight intended! Meant more as a description of the pseudorandom nature of this Leftist's discovery. Likelihood is he's "more" than "just another" Leftist to have made it into that particular set of search results. If I'm honest, though, I don't really see the shame in being just another Leftist.

"Neo-classical economics: A trail of economic destruction since the 1970s"

Agreed that there's no shame, Drugs0r--I'm most definitely just another leftist too. And I appreciated the best wishes, by the way, and wish them right back across the ocean to you.
