Graham and the Republicans are busily twisting Murkowski's arm, desperately courting her vote. The common wisdom appears to be that if Murkowski votes for Graham-Cassidy, so will Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz. But the desperation to pass something, irrespective of whether it's a workable piece of legislation (and it's not), has apparently forced Graham to make one of the most imbecilic deals in the history of Congress.

It's one thing to suffer a momentary lack of self-control after losing a simple game...
But it's another thing entirely to engage in this kind of silly, irrational behavior as a business owner, politician or political pundit in reaction to the results of an election. It's no surprise the Republicans are doing exactly that.

Throughout his gripping new book, Philadelphia Daily News reporter and blogger Will Bunch augments the notion that Glenn Beck is playing a fictional character named "Glenn Beck." A faker.

Glenn Beck is engaged in a carefully orchestrated performance that, if taken to its logical end, can only end up in tragedy -- a tragedy, not in the name of some great political or social or religious cause, as too many of his viewers might believe, but rather in the name of pure careerism and greed.

Racist hate groups are at record levels -- rising from 926 in 2008 to 932 in 2009, according to the Southern Poverty Law Center. The Teabaggers & hate mongers who turn up regularly on right wing radio & increasingly in the New York Times seem to be OK with looting the treasury & illegal wars as long as a black guy isn't in charge.

Ethically inert Republicans are convinced deluded, embittered Americans will respond to their reflexive hatefulness. If Democrats fail to present an immediate, decisive alternative, it could lead to disaster in November.

I'm not so thrilled to announce that there's a new kind of "porn" in town. What we've been witnessing during this health care reform process can easily be defined as "bipartisanship porn." It's a display of bipartisanship so obscene and excessive that it borders on perverse.

What the far-right appears to suggest is that ideas that are supported by 82% of Americans are criminal acts of tyranny, and an eventual tax increase of pennies on the dollar for the wealthiest 2% is worthy of opposition by revolutionary means.

We have grown accustomed to nonsensical rantings from the right wing sound machine in this country, but a recent frothy mouthed incantation by Sean Hannity takes this phenomenon to a new level of the absurd.
