Contra Yeats; The Greek Center Held
Official results released by the interior ministry, with 97 percent of ballots counted, showed New Democracy taking 29.7 percent of the vote, with SYRIZA on 26.9. The PASOK Socialists were set to take 12.3 percent of the vote. Because of a 50-seat bonus given to the party which comes first, that would give New Democracy and PASOK 162 seats in the 300-seat parliament, in an | Read More »
Is David Brooks Comparing the Tea Party to Nazis?
“David Brooks, please look up Godwin’s Law.” David Brooks seems to forget it was the tea party movement that handed the Republicans control of the House in 2010. Today he laments the rise, again, of conservatives and views his ideological drift to the left as standing still with conservatism moving away from him. He really does lack serious self-awareness.

Tech at Night: The Return. Also, we still need to kill SOPA.

And by ‘be having difficulty | Read More »
Well That Didn’t Last Long
Not long at all. In an extraordinary outburst on the House floor, Rep. Steve Cohen (D-TN) invoked the Holocaust to attack Republicans on health care and compared rhetoric on the issue to the work of infamous Nazi propagandist Joseph Goebbels. “They say it’s a government takeover of health care, a big lie just like Goebbels,” Cohen said. “You say it enough, you repeat the lie, | Read More »
Barack Obama’s Organizing for America Goes With the Nazi Mustache Too
Earlier I showed you the video of Halvorson supporters in Illinois protesting Adam Kinzinger with posters of Adam that had Hitler mustaches on him (and Sarah Palin too). The Kinzinger campaign has emailed me and confirms the identity of some of the people, including the leader of the protest. Turns out the leader of the protest on September 15th is an employee of Organizing for | Read More »
