Your Saturday Reading List

The People’s View has a great post up about “The Base” of the Democratic Party and it ain’t that place that is on fire, has a dog and lives on a lake.

The People’s View also has a new post from Tien about the split on the left. It speaks to the disaffected Obama supporters and how to bring them back into the fold. I don’t think it applies to the people trying to inflame that group. I was going to do an entire post about that, so please go read it instead.

Allan at Angry Black Lady Chronicles lays out why Republican game playing with the debt ceiling is the height of hypocrisy, I know, say it ain’t so…Republican’s being hypocritical.

I hope the President goes all 14th amendment on the Republican’s who are trying to destroy our economy for their political gains. Check this out and follow some of the links, I knew the president had a way to protect us from those un-American asshole Republican’s.

The Only Adult In The Room has this take on Mark Halperin’s comment and subsequent suspension from MSNBC and it’s a good one. And it led to the next link below.

Tom Joyner, who I respect a lot because he was awesome enough to do a piece on my documentary last summer, which crashed our website because of traffic, a good problem to have. We had to triple our bandwidth to accommodate. :) A big thanks to Roland Martin as well, it was his segment. Joyner has this great piece that uses Halperin as a  jumping off point to Tavis and Cornel. Go read it!

Smartypants has a great summary of the week in debt ceiling fun and how the Democrats have a few tools in their box.

Joy Reid at The Reid Report has a great piece on the DSK developments. Rich guys get to rape and assault women, didn’t you know that?

  1. No it turns out that the woman DSK assaulted has conflicting stories and has been changing at the spurn of the moment. Two thoughts she either got paid off or she was lying from the get go.

  2. Thanks for all the great links, EL. I especially like The Only Adult In The Room because I haven’t vented all my disgust at Mark Halperin yet.. calling then Senator Obama a “pussy” in 2008 and now cowardly thinking it would be deleted and calling the POTUS “a dick” on Morning Assholes.

    And, thank you for the links the other day to Time and MSNBC to register our reaction and our ACTION.

  3. For 10 hours today, Fox News Twitter account had reported that President Obama had been shot in Iowa and bled to death! (wishful thinking???). Fox says their Twitter account with 36,000 followers had been hacked.

    Six messages were removed online around noon on Monday, about 10 hours after they were first posted, but not before attracting a flurry of attention overnight and in the morning.

  4. The Dominque Strass-Kahn “rape” case has stirred up those old “hate France” feelings among many Americans just getting used to calling “Freedom Fries…French Fries again. Now, it appears that the media circus and rush to judgment in the U.S. is arousing anti-American feelings among the French.

    In France there is “a sense that it was not just Mr. Strauss-Kahn who was being so jauntily humiliated, but France itself.”

    Dominique Moïsi, a longtime analyst of French-American relations writes, “The case does damage to the image of America and recreates negative stereotypes that existed before.” “There is a sense in Europe that you can’t be fully civilized with the death penalty,” he said. “Now this feeling is reinforced — that the United States is not a fully civilized country with a police that behaves like that, that wants to humiliate,” he continued. “There is a sense that it’s a dangerous country.”
