The plan to turn Rhode Island red

GOP strategist Ken McKay is quietly plotting a data-driven explosion of the state’s one-party rule

Give Malalai Joya a visa

Gitmo state of mind
Last week, Defense Secretary Robert Gates told Congress that keeping President Obama's promise to close the notorious military prison for suspected terrorists at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, would be difficult because of opposition from members of Congress. Maine 1st District Representative Chellie Pingree, however, is among those who support closing the base.

Election whoas

Diverse-city
Never before have a I seen such a classist, racist, lock-step-thinking set of election results in my time living here, and I — OK, kidding; kidding. Just wanted to get a rise out of the people who still think I'm all "Maine is a mess" and "White people suck."

The view from the throne

Toilet humor; They do? They don't?; The GOP is ont he clock; Dubya returns
We think we're turning Japanese, we think we're turning Japanese, we really think so. The Japanese have a tremendous obsession with toilets.

Review: South of the Border

Oliver Stone's look at Hugo Chavéz, among others
Oliver Stone may have been easy on W. in his bio-pic, but he chops the dummy's head off in this revealing documentary about the social-welfare-minded neo-liberal leaders running South America, and the liars in the Bush administration who compared them to Hitler and bin Laden.

Just a reprieve? Unless Republican leaders learn from the past, another Iraq is in our future

In terms of foreign policy, the Republican Party remains unapologetically committed to Bush/Cheneyism
In his address to the nation Tuesday evening, discussing the end of American combat operations in Iraq, Barack Obama took great pains to be apolitical, nonjudgmental, and even gracious toward his predecessor.

Cafeteria Americans

The mosque malarkey; constitutional showdown in Cranston
Congratulations to the national Republican Party. Dismissive of the Constitution and thoroughly addicted to whipping up fear and ignorance, they've now managed to get a rise out of the "booboisie" — H.L. Mencken's term for the clueless public — with their demagoguery on the New York "mosque" non-controversy.

Federal trans-formation

Frustrating on high-profile LGBT issues, Barack Obama has moved quickly, with little fanfare, on gender-identity issues.
The LGBT community has had its complaints about Barack Obama and his administration, particularly concerning the pace of eliminating the military's Don't Ask Don't Tell policy, and passing the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA).

How an unholy alliance of Catholics, Mormons, and evangelicals seeks to control our lives
And so it came to pass, Roman Catholics, Mormons, and evangelical Protestants have banded together to battle, well, the rest of us — the heathens, the godless liberals, the Hitchens-reading progressives.

High-octane coverage

The Huffington Post owns Gulf coverage; plus, that Hitchens memoir
