" I was actually black before the election."

Yeah, whatever Barack. I was truly honored to be invited to appear with Laura Flanders on GRITtv as part of the Media Roundtable. I opined on Obama's and others' inanity in the week's news reporting. See the video here.

GRITtv: Who Are the Censors in Mid-East Coverage in the US?

How did I do? Yours truly was on GRITtv. Was my make up OK? Allergies and nerves gave me a scratchy voice, but all in all I think my debut went OK. This is just a snippet. I'll post more later.

H1N1 Rap by Dr. Clarke

It is nice to post something fun for a change.

Why I Threw the Shoe

"As soon as I finished my professional duties in reporting the daily tragedies, while I washed away the remains of the debris of the ruined Iraqi houses, or the blood that stained my clothes, I would clench my teeth and make a pledge to our victims, a pledge of vengeance.
The opportunity came, and I took it.

I took it out of loyalty to every drop of innocent blood that has been shed through the occupation or because of it, every scream of a bereaved mother, every moan of an orphan, the sorrow of a rape victim, the teardrop of an orphan."

Muntazer al-Zaidi

God bless Muntazer al-Zaidi. He sent a shot heard round the world when he hurled a verbal insult and his shoes at George W. Bush's head. Of course he received a hero's welcome when he was released from prison today. Party on Iraq!

Under the Greyhound Again

What is the best way to get access to the Obama administration? Simple, oppose Obama. Glenn Beck decides who will work in the white house and anti-abortion republicans get meetings with advisers.

Don't believe me? Read all about it here. A former Mike Huckabee supporter wants an ironclad assurance that health care "reform" will not include federal funding for abortion. As you should recall, public option advocates were treated as if they had cooties and literally could not get arrested by the administration. Pro public option house members were threatened by Rahm Emanuel if they pushed too hard for the right thing.

So, just switch sides. Maybe then you can get a hearing from Obamaland.

Obama's Pants on Fire

He said he wanted single payer health care but that it all hinged on winning back the presidency and both houses of congress. Didn't that happen last November?

Let's face it, Obama never wanted single payer health care. He just said he did so that simple minded fauxgressives would support him. He was right. He can lie like a dirty rug and still get unconditional love.

Obama's Junk Insurance for All

Just listen to Dennis Kucinich. He tells us why so called health reform is nothing but a windfall for insurance companies.
