Code Red

We are out of time to act on our climate emergency. Action is needed right now… or humanity is cooked. Congratulations! If you were alive this past July—and if you’re reading this, there is a better than zero chance you were—you made history! You survived the hottest month ever recorded on planet Earth. Well done!...

Right-Wing Radicals in Robes

Activist GOP Justices on the Supreme Court are ignoring the constitution and demolishing American democracy. Look. This is simple. The 15th Amendment, ensuring former slaves the right to vote following the Civil War, is only two sentences long. “Section 1: The right of citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or...

Asshole of The Month: Greg Abbott

Republican governors now control a majority of U.S. states, 27, meaning there is stiff competition for most backward Asshole governor in the nation. Leading the pack, along with Ron DeSantis of Florida and a few others, is the cretinous caudillo of our most populous red state, Greg Abbott of Texas, who proves the old adage...

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...
