Boycott this?

I’m not sure why people get so frothed about starting boycotts. Another one just popped up in my Facebook News Feed about getting advertisers to stop sponsoring Rush Limbaugh, and while I agree that Limbaugh is a waste of space, the boycott stuff seems a waste of time.

Andy Schmookler: What kind of Christianity is this?

In the past several decades, a major force has entered the American political arena under an explicitly Christian banner. I’m talking about the Christian Right, which has aligned itself with the Republican Party. Has this alliance advanced the values that Jesus taught?

Chris Graham: A third term?

Granted, it’s Neal Boortz, and a discredited self-styled financial guru. Oh, and Rush Limbaugh. All are musing aloud on the possibility – in their minds, certainty – that Barack Obama will figure out a way around the Constitution to seek a third term in the White House in 2016.

John P. Reisman: Free speech gone wild

Rush Limbaugh, in a grand gesture to challenge the edge of what can be considered wise, if not merely palatable in his extreme rhetoric, attacked Sandra Fluke calling here a “slut” and a “prostitute” for her position on contraception.

Valley Blue Dog | GOP Diversity: Can’t we all just get along?

Once upon a time, the GOP was monolithic with issues, so what’s up with the Republican Party of late? Over the past 30 years, the Grand Old Party has been reduced to mudslinging political infighting.  GOP Chairman Michael Steele calls this hot-butter popcorn. Popcorn? Not a chance. I believe it’s a case of true colors and say […]

A Rush to judgment

Stop the Presses column by Chris Graham It’s time that somebody says this – so here goes. Leave Rush Limbaugh alone. Got it? I know what the liberal media is trying to get you to believe, but … Good, we’re on the same page. The guy’s a blowhard, sure – I’ll concede that. He once […]
