GOP Kisses 2014 Dreams Goodbye.

I have no idea what the Republican satraps really thought they could achieve with their latest gambit. In the end, all they proved is that Obama (the Magnificent) can judge a bluff when he sees one.

Gravity has gravity or, if you insist, gravitas.

Just saw Gravity. If you haven't already seen it, I strongly encourage you to see it 3D while it's still in theaters. It's visually amazing and emotionally powerful. Not only is it a well-written script brought to life by excellent acting, the film runs counter to the trends of movies [...]

Petaluma: No Leadership Required.

Gee it's tough being a Petaluma City Councilperson, so many activists to placate, constituents to coddle and issues to straddle.

Putin Swindles Obama (the Magnificent)…Again.

Yet again, Obama (the Magnificent) proves that he can't be trusted in the company of despots and dictators. Yet, the media will hail him as a peace-maker and, if he hadn't already received one Nobel Prize (presumably for being an African-American elected President since he hadn't done anything else), the [...]

Disney-Pixar’s Planes Fails to Take Off.

If you merely listen to the soundtrack of Disney-Pixar’s Planes you could be forgiven for thinking that it was a bad parody of Cars. The jokes are lame and the puns are flat. The people behind this pallid sequel should get out of their echo chamber. That said, the movie [...]
