GOP Vote On Stimulus Was the Very Definition Of Partisan

GOP Vote On Stimulus Was the Very Definition Of Partisan

I’m not even saying it’s a bad thing, but let’s tell it like it is: The Republicans’ votes on the stimulus package, both in the House and the Senate, were intensely partisan. If deluded conservative bloggers are that anxious to get a bipartisan gold star, if they think that mark is important, hey, shine it up, but they’re just wrong.

Top 5 Candidates for Secretary of Commerce

In light of Judd Gregg’s withdrawal as the 2nd nominee for Secretary of Commerce, I thought it would be helpful to the President if I put together a list of potential replacements.

I think the process so far has really pointed up what is truly important in a nominee. Bill Richardson was eminently qualified, but had to bow out due to a “distracting” grand jury investigation. Judd Gregg was a good bipartisan choice, but turned out to be more unipartisan than he’d thought.

It seems clear that this next pick needs to accomplish something other than those two goals. Here are my choices:

5 – Shelley Hack: Drop-dead beautiful, famous for awesome “Charlie” commercials, and the 6th (and in my expert opinion, best) Charlie’s Angel, picking Hack would show the American people that the search has ended. Obama could issue policy guidance over an old-fashioned speaker phone.Continue Reading Top 5 Candidates for Secretary of Commerce

Michael Moore’s Next Film to Target Wall Street

Michael Moore’s Next Film to Target Wall Street

Oscar Award-winning documentarian Michael Moore has posted a call to arms for help on his next movie. The director of Sicko wants whistle-blowers now:

I am in the middle of shooting my next movie and I am looking for a few brave people who work on Wall Street or in the financial industry to come forward and share with me what they know. Based on those who have already contacted me, I believe there are a number of you who know “the real deal” about the abuses that have been happening. You have information that the American people need to hear. I am humbly asking you for a moment of courage, to be a hero and help me expose the biggest swindle in American history.

“Based on those who have already contacted me…”

Did somebody just say “Uh-oh?”

His last film, Sicko, was a huge, critically acclaimed success that helped to change the terms of the debate on universal healthcare, even getting John McCain to try to co-opt the term. He also toned down his own presence in the film, a stylistic choice that made it more accessible to many people.

Moore has famously taken on big targets in the past, which has, in turn, made him a big target for the right. While many would like to silence him, he always has a response for his critics: the facts. Look out, Wall Street.
