Mitch McConnell urges Obama to move to the left?!?

You’ve probably seen one of the many, many articles which list ways in which President Obama has governed to the right of President Reagan. This point of view is a little skewed in that what qualifies as the center in American politics has moved so far to the right over the last 30 years that […]

Obligatory “Spider Jerusalem on Voting” post

(note: If you haven’t read Warren Ellis and Darrick Robertson’s Transmetropolitan, please do so) I’m sure  you’ve all see that one before, but it’s a gift that keeps on giving, isn’t it?
