We haven’t whipped out a Morning Boehner in a while, but there was a big one waiting for us today. Speaker Boehner yesterday led his crazy caucus on a Quixotic mission to sue the president to “to seek appropriate relief” for Obama’s failure to enforce a provision of the Affordable Care Act that would penalize businesses that […]

On November 4, Florida may become the 24th state to legalize medical marijuana. I certainly never think of FloriDUH as a trend leader and, in this case, we’d be in the middle of the pack. But that’s certainly better than dead last or bringing up the rear as is usually the case. On the ballot […]

Today, we inaugurated a new segment on the show – The Gliberal Goddesses! It’s GottaLaff, Amy Simon and myself talking about things that women talk about, the way women talk about them. Today we discussed the Ray Rice domestic violence case and the NFL’s sad response to it. So great to hear from Keith Olbermann […]

Sometimes it feels as if we’re taking on the whole world. That’s because caring, responsible people just can’t sit idly by while the world is crumbling around us. It’s why we fight back against the immoral assholes who scream “Get out” to refugee children whose parents risked their lives on the remote hope they’ll find […]

What a week this has been! I can’t say I’m sorry to see it end. This morning on the show, we flashed back to last week and to February 2000. Last week was easy. I flew to Detroit for Netroots Nations following a few days in Los Angeles for the American Federation of Teachers convention. […]

If only the so-called leaders could be taken out of the equation, the people of the world might actually have a shot at world peace! But only a shot because there are still citizens throughout the world who insist on placing all of the blame for this mess on one side or the other. As […]

As if things weren’t bad enough before I left for 10 days… As Jon Stewart asked upon his return, “What could happen in two weeks?” Famous last words.. Well, Jon Stewart attempted to cover the Israel-Gaza story with objectivity and, for his troubles, he got attacked – from both sides! I hearken back to those […]

  I’m home after 10 days on the road to cover the American Federation of Teachers convention in Los Angeles and Netroots Nation ’14 in Detroit. It was actually anything but a vacation, but I do thrive on the action, and there was plenty of that. To recap the trip, all you need do is […]

Yes! I got to interview the founder of Moral Mondays, Rev. Dr. William Barber last night. It was a very long day, but I would have waited all night to speak with the man who is inspiring people to come together in a Moral Fusion Movement around the subjects of  voting rights, women’s rights, immigrants […]
