On the Enablement of Mitt Romney’s Mendacity

There’s a reason the Richmond Times-Dispatch is referred to lovingly as the “Times-Disgrace.” And it’s on full display here. As reported by Think Progress, after parroting Romney’s talking points on welfare, the Times-Disgrace is cited in Romney’s latest ad on welfare, only now the Times-Disgrace doesn’t stand behind their earlier parroting of Romney’s talking points … Continue reading On the Enablement of Mitt Romney’s Mendacity

On the Danger of the Romney/Ryan Ticket

A few weeks ago, I floated a crazy idea — Mitt Romney should pick Ken Cuccinelli, Virginia’s Attorney General, for his running mate. Basically, I saw Cuccinelli as a pick to placate the Republican base, giving Romney to freedom to tack to center in the general election.

Arizonans need to know that there’s not a unicorn on the ballot this November.

I’m not sure if I’ve ever seen anything quite like this, before, though. The Concord Monitor, in Concord, New Hampshire, ran an … Continue reading On Mitt Romney’s Anti-Endorsement
