To me it seems like an attempt to show how ridiculous all the crypto-Muslim/anti-American whisper-campaigning has been, especially since the New Yorker has been more or less been banging the Obama drum for months (especially Hertzberg). I chuckled, remembering some of their other covers lampooning the ridiculous assertions being made in this campaign. And though Read More

Image from NY Mag. Fascinating piece in New York this week on Willie Kathryn Suggs, one of the people most responsible for Harlem’s new ‘renaissance’: the first broker in Harlem to sell a house for a half-million dollars, the first to hit $850k and the first to sell a house for $2 million. She’s also Read More

Crossposted from shanio over at the neo. Brother Charlie Rangel, bless him, is renting not one, not two, not three… but four rent-stabilized apartments in one uptown building, for a fraction of what they would normally cost on the market. According to the Times: Mr. Rangel, who was first elected to Congress in 1970 and Read More

[vodpod id=ExternalVideo.629893&w=425&h=350&fv=%26rel%3D0%26border%3D0%26] As usual with the Boondocks, the lampooning is so scattershot that it’s hard to figure out what they’re skewering.

(image from the Guardian) (Crossposted From Bitch, Ph.D) Remember the girls in Massachusetts who supposedly had a “pregnancy pact”? By now everyone’s probably heard that the scandal has turned out to be bullshit. Quel surprise.

In a somewhat histrionic column on The Root, Janelle Jolley praises some major advertisers (Proctor & Gamble, GM, and McDonald’s among them) for pulling ads from BET’s 106 & Park and Rap City: We’ve already suffered for years from this toxic material wreaking havoc in the core of our community and shaping the public’s perception Read More

from guest contributor hilzoy at Obsidian Wings. Crossposted with permission. I haven’t written anything about Jesse Helms’ death, since I don’t like speaking ill of the dead. However: every so often, conservatives wonder: why oh why do people think that the Republican party, and/or the conservative movement, is bigoted? I think that the conservative response Read More

Nothing too spoil-y here, but you might wanna refrain if you haven’t seen the movie.* *Um, why haven’t you seen this movie?

The Republican National Committee is flush with cash, but it isn’t allowed to coordinate with John McCain’s campaign.
