Correction: The story of the video from 2010 (from Robertson's appearance at a church in PA) was in the Saturday edition of the NY Daily News, not the Post.

If things don't change dramatically in Washington we're about to see one of the most idiotic political moves in a generation play out on the Hill.
Unless something very significant changes in Washington in the next 12 hours or so the US government is going to start shutting down in in the early hours of Tuesday morning in a last-ditch attempt to keep from defaulting on ...

This should be fun to watch....
It is rare that this blog, leftist as it is, agrees with much of anything that Karl Rove has to say but before being Leftist I strive to be a Pragmatist and in this I have to give Karl a tip of the hat.  His editorial in the ...

There is something profoundly unsettling about the raft of political pundits and play-callers who seem absolutely sure of themselves as to what the Obama administration and the US Government more broadly should do about Syria...

My bet is on Rubio for the GOP nomination in 2016
Apparently it's never too early to start running for President because Rasmussen has an interesting poll out detailing who Republicans most and least want to see as their party's nominee for the 2016 Presidential race. For a ...

Wait, are you screwing with the saruration and light balance or did they actually get temporary red and green hair dye?! Given how WELL the hues blend with the background I'm kinda guessing PS but... It is wacky Wednesday...

The hits just keep on coming from the Republican Party, both in Washington DC and, apparently, in Richmond.  Virginia plays host to the only competitive Governor's race this year and as things heat up national attention is fo...

I can't decide if this country's complete failure to maintain an even moderately informed discussion on chemical weapons leaves me angry or just disappointed.  
This post on PolicyMic is the dumbest thing I've ever seen.  There are many, many good reasons for the United States to avoid involvement in the Syria situation, not the least of which is that the people we would be aiding - ...

Warning: rage triggers for Latinos, parents of little girls, and people with a sense of right and wrong.
I post this video both infuriated and frustrated.  The fury I feel is for the brave little girl who stood up and asked a difficult and personally painful question in a public form.  She deserved empathy and understanding form...

The best Italian buffet in the area but that's really the strong-suit. Avoid ordering off the menu if you can; the service is pretty slow. Gluten free pizza is available for a rather reasonable price.

Very friendly and informal service plus some of the best southern soul food you'll ever have make this my favorite BBQ place for hundreds of miles. Make sure you get some pie to go with your meal; I recommend the pecan.

Stromboli. Oh God, the stromboli. How they break even, much less turn a profit on this stuff is beyond me. The place is a complete dive and FAR from the Vegas Strip but WELL worth your time.

We went for a quick brunch and very much enjoyed it. Everything was fresh and clearly from scratch and the staff was very accommodating of young children, even in the midst of what was clearly their morning rush. Try the Crab Cake Eggs Benedict. Very nice.
