Asshole of the Month: Bill Cosby

The rise, fall and now supposed redemption of Bill Cosby—he was released from prison in late June after serving three years for sexual assault—is a complex story about the evolving emancipation of two defining identities in American culture: race and gender. For unfamiliar Millennials and the generations beyond, and boomers with bad memories…Bill Cosby was...

Is Garland up to the Task?

Biden’s attorney general must step up to save Democracy and detour Trump’s “Road to Tyranny.” Nothing is gonna be easy for the new U.S. attorney general. Writing in Washington Monthly, law professor Jennifer Taub quipped, “This is Merrick Garland’s Tylenol moment, and by which I mean he has more than a headache, but a poisoning...

Asshole of the Month: Ron DeSantis

Leave it to Florida—home of the “Florida Man” meme and just about every freakish perversion known to humankind—to elect a governor truly representative of the state: the wild, woolly-brained wingnut Ron DeSantis. You would expect a man who graduated from both Yale and Harvard Law School to be more reasonable and better informed than the...

No Cops for Traffic Stops!

People of color are getting killed in the USA for expired license plates or broken taillights. While driving home from a grocery store with his girlfriend and her four-year-old daughter in 2016, Philando Castile was pulled over in a St. Paul, Minnesota, suburb for a broken taillight. Due to the driver’s “wide-set nose,” the responding...

Pretending to Protect Democracy

Hundreds of major corporations demand voting rights for all! (No, not really.) The banner for the two-page advertisement in The New York Times and The Washington Post was striking: “WE STAND FOR DEMOCRACY.” Below it the body copy declared, “We all should feel a responsibility to defend the right to vote and to oppose any...

Asshole of the Month: Elise Stefanik

Now that we’ve been spared Donald Trump’s daily dose of illiterate bullshit for months—Twitter and Facebook have continued his suspension indefinitely—a lot of people think the nightmare is fully over. Not quite so fast. Like a resurrecting monster in a horror movie, Trump is clawing out of his electoral grave and terrorizing the nation with...

Asshole of the Month: Matt Gaetz

The state of Florida is famous for many things, but perhaps none so much as the “Florida man” meme: a chronic freak show of bizarre behavior unrivaled by any other place in the U.S. or even the world. It seems every week Florida headlines report insane news: a homeless man attacked by a face-eating cannibal;...

Forget Trump—Reagan’s Era Is Ending

President Biden and reinvigorated Democrats step up to prove that, yes, government can be the solution. In the dark days of the 2008 financial crisis, The Daily Show With Jon Stewart featured politico guests working to staunch the bleeding at the time. Why, Stewart repeatedly asked, were hundreds of billions in emergency relief being gifted...

Asshole of the Month: Josh Hawley

Some people born with all the stars aligned for a successful life nevertheless manage to fuck things up with a few horrible decisions; they bet the whole farm on the wrong horse or hitch their wagon to a leader who turns out to be a false prophet. Then their soaring ambition flames out like a...

Never Forget Your First

Larry Flynt may be gone, but his indelible legacy as a free speech champion must live on. There’s been a lot of free speech about free speech lately. Much of it—particularly from those defending Donald Trump—is bullshit. But the First Amendment protects free speech that is bullshit. You have the right to be wrong. You...

Asshole of the Month: Marjorie Taylor Greene

Over the years, Asshole of the Month has featured a bounteous parade of blithering idiots, con men, habitual liars and hypocrites, the vast majority of them either Republican politicians or right-wing pundits and players. So we’ve grown a little complacent, thinking we’ve pretty much seen it all—and then along comes a new Asshole so outrageously...

Truth and Consequences

After helping to heal broken nations overseas, an accomplished diplomat warns America, “The only real path to peace involves accountability.” Make no mistake. There can be no peace, no reconciliation, without truth, without consequences, without accountability. “There’s a reason you don’t have a lot of candidates out there and politicians saying they want to be...

Asshole of the Month: Lin Wood

Many people assume that highly educated professionals—medical doctors, lawyers, professors, scientists—are a sane, rational lot, untroubled by the crackpot ideas that afflict more ignorant folk. They couldn’t have plowed through all those difficult lessons and lectures in college with a screw loose, right? That’s way wrong. We’ve got mad scientists, quack doctors and lawyers who’d...

Let the Accountability Begin!

To restore the nation, we must restore justice…and disbar Trump’s lawyers. “The first thing we do, let’s kill all the lawyers,” says Dick the Butcher in Shakespeare’s Henry VI, Part 2. That’s way over the top, but disbarring Donald Trump’s lawyers wouldn’t hurt. In fact, with nothing less than the survival of our democracy at...

Asshole of the Month: Steven Crowder

As we enter the third decade of the 21st century, we can celebrate a lot of progress over bad old habits of the past: It wasn’t so long ago that men were free to sexually harass women in the workplace and get away with it scot-free (Harvey Weinstein). Gay marriage is now widely acceptable, and...

The Coup Klutz Clan and Me

How Team Trump coopted years of my reporting to try to steal the election from Joe Biden. Soon after the November 2020 Presidential election, traffic to my website, BradBlog.com, began spiking. As I tried to figure out the cause, I noticed that a number of my exclusive stories from 2010 were getting a lot of...

Asshole of the Month: Sidney Powell

As Trump hunkered down in his bunker weeks after the November 3 election—as delusional as Adolf in his bunker, moving shadow Nazi armies around on a spittle-flecked map—the President relied on a few legal henchmen to rescue him from certain defeat. Many Republican leaders had already informed him it was over and advised him to...

Nice Guys Finish First

At least Joe Biden did in 2020. During the dark days of the George W. Bush Presidency—before the who-knew-it-could-get-so-much-darker days of Donald Trump—pollsters and pundits had an explanation for why voters chose the bumbling Bush over the competent Al Gore (in 2000) and John Kerry (in 2004). Setting aside the debatable issue as to whether...

Fake News at 11

The FCC is allowing your favorite local TV station to become Fox “News,” and you probably haven’t even noticed. “Our government rests in public opinion,” Abraham Lincoln once observed. “Whoever can change public opinion can change the government.” The point made by this nation’s first Republican President is one that today’s GOP has taken to...

Asshole of the Month: Robert Jeffress

Psychologists and mental health professionals have long recognized the role of friends, spouses and relatives in enabling people troubled by alcohol and drug addiction, domestic violence and other bad behavior—they’re called codependents. After four years of Donald Trump, the most incompetent, dishonest buffoon to ever occupy the White House, we have to recognize a new...
