I can’t believe I’m doing this, but I am going to defend Justin Bieber. The singer, who
for some reason is immensely popular right now with girls around the age Anne Frank was when she died (15), went to Amsterdam, and while there visited the Anne Frank museum.
Afterward he wrote in the guest book “Truly inspiring to be… Read the rest
This is an ad that was on page 5A of today’s paper. I wonder how much The Oklahoman charged and profited to print this piece of garbage. Yeah, I wonder that, but that’s not my question to them. My real question is, if some similar nutcase bigot who happened to have an ad to run that was equally anti-Christian or… Read the rest

The “journalists” on CNN’s Situation Room, after a summer of “birther” “deathers” and myriad other radical Right fringe lies about Obama and the Democratic health care reform efforts — each one uglier than the last — are absolutely apoplectic today over Alan Grayson’s dramatization… Read the rest
