Phil Donahue Was Fired For Threatening Tweetie's Manliness?

I think he saw me as a threat to his supremacy,” Donahue told HuffPost Live’s Marc Lamont Hill. “He wanted to be the face of MSNBC and here comes this talk show host. I had the benefit of recognition … I think I was a threat to his goal of being the man at MSNBC. He was quite emotional. He was emotionally upset.”

He said that he had not been prepared for “the fear of the suits at MSNBC” about his show, adding that he was forced to put two conservative guests on for every liberal.

Donahue said he thought corporate pressure had played a key role in his show’s demise.

"Reagani Lincolnus"

10 Years Later: Where Are They Now?

Gingrich & Santorum tried to form anti-Romney unity ticket, but couldn’t decide who’d get to be prez

Gingrich and Santorum tried to form an anti-Romney unity ticket, but couldn’t decide who’d get to be prez.

Newt Gingrich and Rick Santorum were close to forming a "unity ticket" to challenge Mitt Romney during the Republican presidential primaries, Bloomberg Businessweek's Joshua Green reported Friday. But ultimately the two men couldn't agree on who would be president if they won.

“In the end, it was just too hard to negotiate," Gingrich said in the report.

“I was disappointed when Speaker Gingrich ultimately decided against this idea, because it could have changed the outcome of the primary,” Santorum told Businessweek. “And more importantly, it could have changed the outcome of the general election.”

"I'm not (black). So I'm not going to marry one"



I imagine 50 years ago

We could easily mildly edit conservative Georgian Saxby Chambliss' position opposing gay marriage as it would have appeared then.

"I'm not (black). So I'm not going to marry one"

Or the classics in a language he'd find comforting:


Ich bin kein Jude. Also werde ich nicht man eine heiraten

Yoko Ono's Plea For Gun Control Expressed In One Image: John Lennon's Blood-Splattered Glasses



On the 44th anniversary (March 20) of her marriage to John Lennon, Yoko Ono tweeted this powerful photo of her late husband’s blood-splattered glasses, the ones he wore the night he was murdered

31,537 people are killed by guns in the USA every year. We are turning this beautiful country into a war zone.

Together, let’s bring back America, the green land of peace.

The death of a loved one is a hollowing experience. After 33 years our son Sean and I still miss him.” Yoko Ono Lennon


In my world, I’m still giving peace a chance and Yoko Ono will always be a hero to me. Love is all you need…and a fearless commitment to confront and defuse the powers that be.

Obama Caught on Open Mic Disparaging Congress

Obama Caught on Open Mic Disparaging Congress

When Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu asked if President Obama was counting on some rest and relaxation during his trip to Israel, the president quickly said, "It's good to get away from Congress."

David Hawkings: "The jape was caught on an open mic and appeared in no official transcripts, underscroring the perception that Obama is never more candid than when he's lamenting his troubles back home in conversations abroad -- and doing so with a foreign leader on the curious assumption that no one's listening in."

Wars Are Bad

Wars Are Bad.

And if for some reason the people who run the United States feel the need to start one, it means they've failed. It means they should all resign in shame and let someone else clean up their mess. This country has immense power - military, economic, political - and if you can't use the latter two, along with the implicit threat of the first one, to make war unnecessary then you've fucked up and it's time to go home.
