I just love when the cable TV bobbleheads hear something other than bullshit talking points. Go, Bernie! To prepare Americans for middle class jobs, Sanders said that he had “introduced legislation that would make public college tuition free.” “Where’s the money going to come from?” Blitzer wondered. “A tax on Wall Street speculation, and that’s […]

Yes, the man who was trying to hit on an employee was full of self-righteous wrath when his then-wife wanted a divorce. It’s all so very predictable and sad: Fox News anchor Bill O’Reilly, known for his hardline stance on family values and violence in the home, allegedly assaulted his ex-wife, dragging her down the […]
