Being Liberal and a Progressive in a RED STATE is not an easy thing these days. I started this blog to vent my frustrations on our lives being taken over by right wing conservatives with their propaganda machines. I have also learned an important lesson in the last year, it is that reading is the only way to get real information, you cannot depend on the news you see on TV.

The 1/2 Hour News Hour ~~ God was that awful!

I just finished watching the new Fox News answer to Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert, the 1/2 Hour News Hour and it was about the worst, poorest written, hateful, racist thing I've ever seen in a long, long while.

BO magazine for "Barack Obama" (please, BO -- body odor?) -- a subliminal message that Obama like the old racist hate speech that blacks have BO. Also showing the crowds that came out to adore him are all black, taking clips from his visit to Africa, rather that the mixed US crowds that come to see and hear him in America.

Unfunny, boring and sick just like the right wing nutcakes like Rush Limbaugh and Ann Coulter who had small appearances in the show.

Really sad!!!

Yep, you're right. I had to replay the Tivo'd show to believe it.

That was clearly meant to race bait... and they will get away with it too.

How about those peals of laughter at, ".... he (Mao Tse-tung) actually killed 40 million people."

And why so much hate for Ed Begley?

Because he's environmentaly conscious?

Reich-wingnuts are just plain fucking creepy.

Did you see Slate's take? They ran a clip of it, and had some staffers give their impressions. When that shot of the black crowd came on, one of the Slaters sarcastically said something like, "Uh-oh! A crowd of excited black people. We can't have that in America." Dead on.

Liberals playing the race typical! You guys confirm the stereotype of liberals always branding their opponents as racists and bigots. Let's see..the only former Klansman in the senate is Byrd, a Democrat, and who was it, yes it was Sen. Joe Biden (D) who insulted Obama and said he's the first articulate African American to run for office. Okay, you can start justifying those positions and making excuses starting now!
