Michael Moore, Triumphant?In a new memoir, the controversial filmmaker opens up about his life. He talks about the vitriol he faced after 9/11, and why he thinks the last decade has proved him right.

Why Do Conservatives Get a Pass?Perry’s views are getting denounced by all the usual lefty suspects but not much by anyone else. And the reason for this is something very odd: In modern America, conservatives are largely given a pass for saying crazy things. They’re just not taken seriously, in a boys-will-be-boys kind of way.

Goodbye to All That: Reflections of a GOP Operative Who Left the CultI left because I was appalled at the headlong rush of Republicans, like Gadarene swine, to embrace policies that are deeply damaging to this country’s future; and contemptuous of the feckless, craven incompetence of Democrats in their half-hearted attempts to stop them. Long, but definitely worth the read. Especially if you’re a conservative. (Thanks to [info]goulo.)

The link to the essay by the GOP operative was fascinating. Of course, it's filled with facts and verifiable evidence so the slackjawed fuckwits on the Right won't bother to read it.
