I Baptize Thee: "Slick Rick SATANorum"

Dear All,

Please note, I have renamed my previous post from this week and ask that you also please read and share when you get the chance. It's now entitled:

"SATANorum's 'Sly Lies' & Sociopathic Political Theology." 

As many of you know, I am a Jesuit trained Catholic… Read full post »

As a Jesuit trained Catholic, I'm appalled at the willingness of Rick SATANorum to convert the sin, "THOU SHALL NOT BEAR FALSE WITNESS" into a virtue when it comes to lying about Obama and portraying him in a false and negative light.

But then again, this type of sociopathic… Read full post »

I'm one of "those people" Herman Cain and some well known Conservatives have maligned as not "really" being Black. In other words, my mother's White and my father's Black. But my dad, who's 83 years old, was also born and raised in Lynchburg Va. during the height of segregation. And the… Read full post »

As I said recently on the Huffington Post, I admit to being sickened by seeing so many of the same people commenting on HP who now support Herman Cain also say some of the most racist and hateful things about Black people and Obama. The hypocrisy couldn't… Read full post »

This is a great piece by the political consultant, Bob Shrum. To be honest, I never knew he had it in him. But this is the best analysis I've yet heard from him (or most others in mainstream politics) as it pertains to political  and electoral power, and the self-sabotaging actions… Read full post »

I'd like to propose a little "contest" on OS for coming up with some catchy nicknames for Rick Perry, as well as Texas, and some slogans that capture what he and the far right stand for. Please feel free to leave them here and ideas for how we can best vote… Read full post »

In case you haven't heard, Gov. "Slick Rick" Perry served in the Air force for 5 years in the 1970s and retired a Captain. He dishonored that privilege both during his speech announcing his candidacy and last night on a soapbox in Iowa, alleging the military doesn't respect Obama… Read full post »
