Selling guns to Mexican drug gangs is so funny, man

Politico’s Chief Political Columnist Roger Simon shrugs off and laughs at Fast and Furious.

I don’t find the U.S. government selling guns to Mexican drug gangs (yes, really!) as hilarious, in my latest post for WNYC’s It’s a Free Country.

You know who definitely can’t “have it all”? Men.

My latest in the New York Post.

Beer me.

My piece in the NY Post today demands (asks nicely) that NY’ers be allowed to drink in parks and festivals.

They really are

I just left this comment on a NY Times piece titled “Liberals Are Ruining America. I Know Because I Am One” (he doesn’t actually think he’s ruining the world. He thinks conservatives are ruining the world and make him a worse person). I don’t know if it makes it through their monitoring process since all the comments under the piece are positive so figured I’d post it here:

You seem to believe your article is some sort of rallying cry for liberals and conservatives to get along. In fact, you insult conservatives and Republicans all the way through the piece and then imagine we’ll, what, work with you for *your* idea of a better world? The one TV news station that isn’t openly and entirely liberal is a “reliable conduit by which paranoid hogwash infects our mainstream media.” The GOP is “cynicial”, conservatives are “wack jobs” and “wing nuts.” The policies we support are “cruel and self-defeating.” You’re the one “amplifying conflict” in your article but can’t manage to see it, even in a piece about minimizing conflict. Pretty funny. – @karolnyc

Not voting for Obama? Racist!

The meme lately has been on polls “proving” that those who oppose interracial marriage aren’t voting for Obama (but, presumably, would have voted for a white Democrat).

My latest piece for WNYC’s A Free Country blog shows why that’s a lazy, sloppy explanation not supported by the numbers.
