It turns out that stripping workers’ rights, cutting the safety net, funneling money away from public schools, firing thousands of public workers, and doing the bidding of corporate donors doesn’t create a strong economy.

The self-titled full-length debut from Adam Green and Binki Shapiro

With deceptively pretty arrangements that echo filigreed late-sixties folk-pop and an easygoing rapport between singers, this duets collaboration between Adam Green and Binki Shapiro takes just one listen to enchant. Both artists are notable figures among indie-pop fans, cherished for their off-kilter sensibility (him) and elegantly quirky style (her). Green came onto the New York City “anti-folk” scene with his band The Moldy Peaches, enjoying belated mainstream success via their song on the Grammy-winning soundtrack to the hit film, Juno. Shapiro is recognized by her video collaborations with Beck, and her presence in Little Joy, a, breezy Brazilian-accented Los Angeles trio formed with Fabrizio Moretti of the Strokes and Rodrigo Amarante of Los Hermanos. Adam and Binki’s self-titled debut album features sweetly melancholic lyrics, candidly addressing betrayal and incipient heartbreak, yet encased in the most gentle and melodic of vocals.

Boehner’s 48 Hours of Pretending to Work with Obama Sets New Record | 
WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report)—House Speaker John Boehner today called for an extension of the Bush-era tax cuts for the rich, thus ending a streak of pretending to work with President Obama that lasted forty-eight hours.
“We knew he couldn’t hold out much longer,” said Carol Foyler of Guinness World Records.
“Still, John Boehner pretending to be bipartisan for forty-eight hours is pretty darn impressive,” she said, noting that his previous record stood at twenty minutes. “This is David Blaine territory for him.”
Speaking to reporters, Mr. Boehner downplayed the significance of his record-setting performance, saying merely, “It just feels good being a dick again.”

As a registered republican who admired Goldwater and Buckley and who pushes the writings of Adam Smith, I am deeply saddened to see the Republican Party fallen into its sorry state, unable to point to a single unalloyedly positive accomplishment in the last 25 years or to a “record” as their basis for demanding votes. Their campaign amounts to: “Please don’t ever ask us about our extensive record of governance over the United States, nor ask about our former president, the bills we passed or their outcomes! Instead, look here at these assertions, distractions and promises!” Given their war on science, their incompetent and horrifically costly fumblings at war, their economic voodoo, and their glaring propensity for cheating, I have to conclude that Pax Americana hasn’t faced a recent danger worse than these fools who most rabidly wave its flag.
