Democrats’ Faustian Bargain

In their mad race for money, the front-running Democratic presidential candidates might be selling themselves to the devil.  That is, in words more familiar to political debate, they might be delivering themselves into the hands of rich and powerful opponents of progressive policies.

Shades of White

The satirist pokes fun at the Republican candidates who are competing for that often-neglected voting bloc—the white male.

How Low Can Gonzales Go?

We already knew Alberto Gonzales was happy to bend the law to suit the bidding of the president, but accosting a sick man in his hospital room? The more one learns about him, the more unbelievable it is that this man is still our attorney general.

Watergate Without the Break-In

It is time to stop referring to the “fired U.S attorneys scandal” by that misnomer, and call it what it is: a White House-coordinated effort to use the vast powers of the Justice Department to swing elections to Republicans.

Iran Calls Bush’s Bluff

Relations between the U.S. and Iran are shifting as U.N. inspectors discover that Iran’s uranium enrichment program appears to be further along than previously believed.  These new developments only underscore the increasing volatility in the very region the American invasion of Iraq was supposed to secure, and they put the Bush administration in a codependent relationship with Iran’s ruling regime.
