Charlie I love your stuff 99% of the time but you need to break up with Matt Lewis. He's wrong more often than he's right and is one of the world's leading purveyors of bothsidesism. His contention Dems get favorable media treatment is laughable. Anyone who watched CNN, The New York Times, Washington Post, and even MSNBC cover the Afghanistan withdrawal could explain to Matt how dumb his take is.

Filled with Christian (or Mormon) charity, ain't they?

As a Pennsylvanian who has voted for quite a few GOP candidates for the US Senate, though registered as a Democrat, I would like to point out that it may make sense to vote for an intelligent, experienced public servant over a snake oil salesman. And I trust that if Fetterman feels when he gets to D.C. that he cannot do the job that he will resign for the sake of the people of PA thus allowing another Democrat to serve out his term. Leaving the race now would give it to Oz & be damaging to our fragile democracy.

Lara Logan's "libs kill children to drink their blood" is dangerously close to the blood libel of Jews, that eternal lie that accuses Jews of killing Christian children to use their blood to bake Passover matzoh. I wonder if that was deliberate on her part, or just part of her increasing insanity?

I know it’s not even marginally important to the discussion, and pretty damn juvenile, but click the Twitter link on the Lara Logan video, and read the comments. There is one that is GOLD. Seriously, this is why I can’t quit Twitter

How on earth can you agree with a straight face Fetterman has ‘compliant media’? Have you seen Phillip Bump’s WaPo article on mentions of crime in the news? And how Fox News drove that coverage into the ‘liberal MS, compliant’ media…

The forced birth GQP has a propaganda organ converting reality for half the country. How many Fox News hosts challenged Herschel Walker’s capabilities? Or intelligence? Or morality? The answer is none. Hannity is providing hours of free air time.

@Charlie may have walked away from talk radio but I’m afraid he can’t quit it…

Last I saw, this was Donald Trump's reaction to the violent attack on Nancy Pelosi's husband, in its entirety:

" "

Quite the profile in courage and demonstration of mature adult leadership. But you know that.

Good riddance to twitter. It emphasizes short, click bait "thoughts". It is an unedited and unverified source of news, and somehow remains the source of "information" for too many people.

Legitimate news outlets have failed to realize that when they link to tweets, they are granting legitimacy to a competitor in the news delivery business.

I asked my kindergarten er if it was ok to make fun of old people or sick people. She said "no". I guess we are raising a Democrat?

Now we know why Charlie looks so young!

I think (and hope) that Fetterman could get more sympathy than the pundits expected, but maybe I only think that because everything else is so through the looking glass these days.

Evidently, Tahrir Square altered Ms Logan's perceptions a bit more than anyone realized. She's getting a bit Rose McGowan nowadays...so not a cute look...

considering the recent action on Pelosi family home..and the toxicity of this election and unreality of the far right...I really hope the members of the Bulwark have taken somesort of security preparation for themselfs and their own...this new election circle is taking a violent turn as reality meets unreality.....to the members of the Bulwark , keep safe, and be a little more vigilant for the next few weeks....this whole election looks to be moving to a whole new level of "anger" and "fear" direction ...God help us all [sighs and shakes head] :(

putin “talks about "conservative" values? His only values are those of a criminal thug and serial liar.”

whether it’s true or not, i think most americans expect that all modern conservative american politicians will (must) tolerate and promote those values, while jabbering ceaselessly about morality and jesus, and stolen elections. Embrace those “values.” in fact, live by those values, because it is a winning strategy and the most important point is that jesus must prevail by any means, method or value necessary.
