http://youtu.be/Ljcc-ymvHog From the tipline, here is a gentleman doing a bit of 300 cosplay whilst muttering something about the need to impeach Obama. He is “Leonidas, from the past,” and he explains that he did not die, but is old. Not sure the gym shorts are historically accurate. Mostly, we feel sorry for his poor horse. Also, […]
(via Wonkette) Well, kids, since it has been about five whole seconds since some Republican said President Obama should be impeached, it’s about that time again. Who is impeachsplaining at us today? Why, it’s Oklahoma Sen. Tom Coburn (no, not that spackle-brained dick weasel Oklahoma senator, but the other one). And why are we IMPEACH!ing the president today? Is it for presidenting while black? Or IRSgate? Or that new puppy? No! It is because of a new standard Sen. Coburn just discovered (read: invented) that did not exist in the era of George W. Bush but it is now a high crime and misdemeanor. […]
A couple of weeks ago, had the House not kicked the fiscal can just a little bit further down the road to May, the country would have once again been embroiled in an artificially created crisis over the debt ceiling. The House Republican caucus is demanding that… […]
As Senator Edward Kennedy’s voice reverberates through the hall, I feel a curious quickening. I lift my eyes to the mega screen suspended from the ceiling of the Arena. There is Teddy, larger than life, in perfect cadence, speaking to us from beyond the grave, uplifting us, exhorting us to live up to our better […]

Like most of the 13,000 or so people who requested a ticket to see Obama speak, I didn’t get in. So I chose to take some pictures outside.
The curious thing about Iowans — they’re polite! The Anti- and Pro-Healthcare Reform protesters were standing shoulder to shoulder. Not only that, unlike what we’ve seen […]

One day before President Barack Obama’s visit to Iowa City, “Stand Up for Freedom” organized a Pentracrest protest in opposition to the recently passed health care reform bill. (Photos and Video)
Obama will arrive in Iowa City this afternoon to discuss the health care reform legislation at the Field House. 750 tickets were distributed to the public earlier this week, although there were several thousand requests.
Obama keeps sending me emails. It’s been two months since the campaign breakup, and while I appreciate that he still relies on me, talks to me, thanks me — it’s just time for me to move on. He’s getting desperate, I know — even getting his Davids to approach me (the Plouffe, the Axe), asking […]
