Republicans Confuse Reality and Fiction With 24

While David Brooks takes on Kos, Maureen Dowd had a bigger target, Michael Chertoff, who attended a panel entitled ” ’24’ and America’s Image in Fighting Terrorism: Fact, Fiction or Does It Matter?” These guys were so lame they asked an informant for boots, radios, binoculars, uniforms and cash, believing he was Al Qaeda — […]

David Brooks on Kos the Keyboard Kingpin

Martin Peretz doesn’t make the mistake of some earlier TNR posts in overstating Kos’s […]

“The most important work”

TownOnline reports on one of John Kerry’s activities on Monday, giving us another glimpse of the chasm between republican so-called “values” and true Christian values expressed by caring for one’s community and helping the disadvantaged. Kerry points to “The most important work” By Patrick Brodrick/ Staff Writer Thursday, June 22, 2006 CLINTON – It has […]
