MARS, BITCHES!

29%

A new low.

And in the right-leaning WSJ.

Nixonian.

10 AM is too early to open the bubbly, so I'll chill it for later tonight.

  1. A tyrant must put on the appearance of uncommon devotion to religion.
    Subjects are less apprehensive of illegal treatment from a ruler whom they
    consider god-fearing and pious. On the other hand, they do less easily move
    against him, believing that he has the gods on his side. -Aristotle,
    philosopher (384-322 BCE)

  2. BTW, why are you posting so often. Shouldn't you be enjoying the Med or something?

  3. You are not allowed to label the WSJ as right leaning until you shed your ridiculous contention that the NYT is not liberal. As I've said 100 times, it doesn't make them bad, but it's just a truth you need to recognize.

  4. This is one of the maddening things about being a liberal today. The right-wing media outlets (most egregiously the Wash Times and Fox) are WAY out there, and even the more center-right ones like the WSJ are pretty open about their agenda.

    the NYT, WP, and well, most of the rest of the MSM, might have a slight liberal preference, but they are so thoroughly cowed by the last 30 years of the right complaining about the bias, that they bend over backwardsw to avoid any appearance of bias, to the point that the play right into the hands of the right wing propaganda machine.

    so sure, the NYT editorial board may always endorse the democrat, but they'll aid and abet the president on his tax cuts that don't add up, a run-up to an unjustified war, a medicare debacle, and more. With "friends" like that . . .
