    Country singer George Jones, who to my ears had the greatest voice ever recorded, died on Friday. A genius of phrasing and nuance, Jones had a stratospheric voice that captured human heartbreak with bottomless poignancy. I once read that when he was a kid, Jones’s father would wake him up in the middle of the night and threaten to beat him if he didn’t sing for him. Whether or not that’s true, his voice conveyed a tortured soul that was unmistakably human. Standing outside an Atlanta club on Friday night where I’d performed an amped-up version of “White Lightning” in...

    Wasserman Schultz: Republicans tried to ‘rig’ the electionBy John Rossomando /// November 4, 2012 Republicans tried to “rig” the outcome of the election by limiting early voting opportunities and by limiting who shows up at the polls, Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.) said this morning during an appearance on C-Span. “We have run circles around them because of our very strong and effective ground game,” Wasserman Schultz said regarding early voter turnout. “Just yesterday, we had major records in terms of Democrats going in to vote in counties around the state of Florida. “The same is...

    The Grio at NBC News ^ | October 25, 2012 | David A. Love
    Looking at the polls, this presidential election season is poised to give birth to the most racially polarized electorate in U.S. history. Whites are backing Mitt Romney in historic numbers, while Obama is garnering historic levels of support among blacks, Latinos and Asians. While the latest NBC/Wall Street Journal poll has the president in a dead heat with his GOP opponent, recent surveys show wide swings in support based on race. In other words, it looks like white voters versus everyone else. Looking at a composite of polls, Obama’s white support averages 37.9 percent, ranging from 35 percent to 41...

    Racial attitudes have not improved in the four years since the United States elected its first black president, an Associated Press poll finds, as a slight majority of Americans now express prejudice toward blacks whether they recognize those feelings or not. Those views could cost President Barack Obama votes as he tries for re-election, the survey found, though the effects are mitigated by some Americans' more favorable views of blacks. Racial prejudice has increased slightly since 2008 whether those feelings were measured using questions that explicitly asked respondents about racist attitudes, or through an experimental test that measured implicit views...

It's clear that Biden, at least, appears to be faring well with senior ladies. Biden walked in for the surprise visit carrying a stack of large pizzas for the 80 or so volunteers – mostly women over 50 – who were gathered there, phone banking. The shrieks began within seconds: “Oh Jesus!” “Joe Biden’s here?” “Oh...

    National Review Online ^ | October 17, 2012 | Stanley Kurtz
    Liberalism isn’t doing so well lately. In fact I’d go so far as to say that liberalism is becoming downright pathological. The disease is progressive (in more ways than one). Precursors were visible as far back as 1964, and again in the 1980s. Yet this latest uspsurege has been building since 2000, and has never yet spread so widely or threateningly across the body politic. The chief symptom of liberal distress is an intense form of denial. Liberals now actually deny that conservatives exist. There are, of course, strange, cartoon-like images that liberals call conservative, yet these bear little resemblence...

Then this bright red little car comes up to the ATM with a light-complected black woman driving.

Jackson has been hospitalized at the Rochester, Minn., center and absent from Congress since June 10.

  • Lesbian college student 'faked anti-gay notes' that sparked rally against hate crimes

    A lesbian student has been kicked out of college and arrested after it emerged she was behind a string of anti-gay messages slipped under her dorm room door, police said. After the notes were found in Alexandra Pennell's room at Central Connecticut State University in March, hundreds came out in support of the student at a campus rally against hate crimes. But when police hid a camera along the hallway outside her room, they allegedly caught her leaving the notes herself - and she admitted she had written them to get the attention of her roommate.

When asked, the couple told officers they believed that the hateful acts were retaliation from their neighbors and the homeowner’s association, who were allegedly upset that the couple did not pick up after their dogs. ~snip~ Perhaps the women didn’t anticipate how seriously the issue would be treated, because nearly eight months later, with the full force of the FBI involved, authorities are saying the women...

Ms. Dowd assails the Supreme Court in the most personal and vitriolic terms for their...

More specifically, if you were to write an opinion piece on the subject for a major newspaper, what would you most want to communicate?One would think that anyone who had lost a loved one on 9/11 would write about bin Laden's guilt, about evil and about experiencing some degree of moral and emotional satisfaction that the loved one's murderer had been killed by American forces.But not Robert Klitzman, a professor of psychiatry at Columbia...

    A prominent Florida atheist activist has been charged with verbally simulating sex in the presence of a 10-year-old neighbor. Ellen Beth Wachs, 48, was charged with lewd and lascivious behavior.

An arrest affidavit said she was arrested following a Saturday morning dispute with a neighbor. According to the affidavit, the 10-year-old boy was playing basketball when Wachs yelled through her open bedroom window for him to stop. The boy was joined outside by...

    A compact fluorescent light (CFL) on the ceiling burst and started a fire in a home in Hornell, N.Y. December 23, 2010. "Those are the lights everybody's been telling us to use," said Joe Gerych, Steuben County Fire Inspector. "It blew up like a bomb. It spattered all over." Fire Chief Mike Robbins said the blaze destroyed the room where the fire started and everything in it, and the rest of the house suffered smoke and water damage. The Arkport Village Fire Department as well as the North Hornell Fire Department required about 15 minutes to put out the fire....

    One day short of the three-week anniversary of their departure, Senate Minority Leader Mark Miller said it's time for Dems to come home and take the fight over collective bargaining rights to the ballot box. Miller, D-Monona, said it was "stunning" that Senate Republicans took less than 30 minutes to vote to end collective bargaining rights for public employees that have existed in Wisconsin for more than 50 years. He called it a disrespect to the people of Wisconsin that will not be forgotten, promising there will be political consequences. "It’s time for us to join the fight back in...

    My firtle mind | 2/28/2011 | Bill Ingram - AKA "JonGaltSr"
    What makes the liberal mind? It has bothered me for many years that there are some people which we refer to as Liberals, Leftist, and Communist, that don’t behave as individuals but can only exist as a group. The obvious fact that brings this to a place of importance is that this group just can not tolerate my way of life and that of most of society. I just can’t perceive why they think like they do? It just isn’t normal. Why is their worldview so contrary to everything most of us have learne? What is different in their views...

    Conservatives have long told anecdotes about the outrageous behavior of some liberal university professors, but now there is video to prove it. After getting a tip from a Louisiana State University student, a web-based organization called Campus Reform sent a cameraman into Professor Bradley E. Schaefer's freshman Astronomy 1101 class. The course description says the class is about "fundamental principles of the solar system," but on this particular day the topic was U.S. policy on global warming. Students were asked to sit in sections according to what they think the U.S. should do about global warming, with choices including do...

    (In 2008, Dominic Cinelli told the Massachusetts Parole Board that he was “deeply sorry’’ and a “new and different’’ man.) Dominic Cinelli sat before the Massachusetts Parole Board in November 2008 and insisted that he was no longer the heroin addict who shot a security guard during an armed robbery to feed his drug habit. “I’m new and different,’’ he said in a soft voice. “But I realize that deep inside me there is still that ugliness, and I know that I have to deal with that and control that, and I’m doing a real good job of it.’’ Four...

    NPR: Obama's Fat Lip Could Improve Image With Jong Il, Ahmadinejad and Putin By Noel Sheppard | November 27, 2010 | 17:14 Noel Sheppard's picture It appears that at NPR, even a fat lip for the President is to be heralded as a crowning achievement furthering his prestige and street cred when dealing with despots like Kim Jong Il and Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. According to Scott Simon, a president with a "gnarly, vivid scar" might even be able to intimidate China's rulers into halting their currency manipulation (audio follows with partial transcript and commentary): SCOTT SIMON, NPR: Just three weeks after...

    CNN released this statement today: “Rick Sanchez is no longer with the company. We thank Rick for his years of service and we wish him well.“ They will broadcast CNN Newsroom from 3-5pm for the foreseeable future. Here’s more from the story earlier today: CNN’s Rick Sanchez is not happy with being made fun of constantly on The Daily Show and Colbert Report. It is from this jumping off point that he absolutely unleashed on Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert, and at times his own network, on Pete Dominick’s satellite radio show yesterday. The big takeaway – Sanchez calls Stewart...

    On Wednesday, upon hearing news that TV stunt comedian Stephen Colbert was to testify before a House panel on immigration, I wrote a blog post called “Scenes from a Political Meltdown” in which I predicted it would not happen, because someone would intervene to prevent the Democratic majority in Congress from making a suicidal error in turning over discussion of an important issue to a master mocker. Well, I was wrong. It happened this morning. Colbert, playing his blowhard-conservative-pseudo-O’Reilly character, was screamingly funny (you can watch him here). Among other things, he attempted to introduce the results of his colonoscopy...
