I'm starting a new category dedicated to the insane ramblings of the right wing punditry class that is so embedded in our national media. Hugh, congratulations on your victory. You've won the first "Hughie Award," for this statement of the ridiculous:

It doesn't advance the idea of civil debate to continually blast your opponents as somehow different from your allies. We have Rush; they have the Jon Stewart. We have Ann Coulter and Michael Savage. They have Keith Olbermann and Chris Matthews.

Yes, Hugh---this truly is worthy of the first--ever---Hughie award---so my hat is off to you!

Can you help us out?

For 17 years we have been exposing Washington lies and untangling media deceit, but now Facebook is drowning us in an ocean of right wing lies. Please give a one-time or recurring donation, or buy a year's subscription for an ad-free experience. Thank you.
