Global Warming Propaganda Video

Conservative ideologues have apparently abandoned the ridiculous claim that the jury’s still out on global warming. The new talking points, as outlined in this Heritage Foundation video, are as follows: Global warming has happened before, it won’t be catastrophic and it’s not worth endangering the global economy.

TIMZ

Iraqi-American Rap on the War

Iraqi-American rapper TIMZ responds to the war with this video, titled simply “Iraq.” The first verse is meant to be from the perspective of an Iraqi, the second from an American. Both have the intensity that has made the genre such an effective avenue for political and social commentary.

Truthdig Podcast: The Consistent Christian

Former Truthdigger of the Week Dr. Joel Hunter, author of “Right Wing, Wrong Bird,” joins the podcast this week to explain why things didn’t work out with the Christian Coalition and why global warming and poverty bother him as much as gay marriage and abortion.

Bill Maher Accuses Bush of Treason

On Friday’s “Real Time,” Bill Maher eviscerated the Bush administration for outing Valerie Plame. There are no revelations here, but Maher’s hard-hitting analysis of the scandal will satisfy even the most Plame-exhausted viewer. Warning: HBO language.

Truthdig Slide Show: Four Years of War

Last week the Iraq war entered its fifth year. We mark the occasion by revisiting striking moments from March 19, 2003, onward.

Still, these images remind us that little has changed in the years since George Bush stood before a banner reading “Mission Accomplished.”

Leahy

Senate Scoffs at Bush Offer

The Senate told Bush to shove his “take it or leave it” offer and ordered subpoenas for key figures in the U.S. attorney scandal. Sen. Pat Leahy had this to say about the president’s above-the-law attitude: “A system of justice does not serve at the pleasure of any person in this country.”

Bush Scandals: The Movie

Conan O’Brien casts his picks for the Hollywood version of Plame-U.S. Attorneys-Iraq-gate. With news that Warner Bros. plans to make the Valerie Plame Wilson story, this comedy routine feels somewhat prescient, although we seriously doubt Jabba the Hutt would agree to play Karl Rove.

Campaign Vigilantes Go Viral

Someone apparently unrelatedrelated to the Barack Obama campaign created a parody of Ridley Scott’s classic “1984” Apple commercial, with Hillary Clinton in the role of Big Brother. In true Youtube fashion, it was quickly followed by a video response with Obama as the bad guy.
Update: Original video creator’s identity exposed!

Baghdad

Hometown Baghdad

These are stories from Iraq, told by people who live there. It’s easy to forget that amid the carnage and chaos we read about, regular people are simply trying to live out their lives in peace.

Bush and Olmert

But Is It Good for the Jews?

J.J. Goldberg, editor in chief of the venerable progressive Jewish daily the Forward, joins the podcast this week to talk about the complexity of Zionism, the misguided intentions of neoconservatism and why AIPAC isn’t quite as sinister as you might think.  Above, Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert with President Bush.
