promoting my Occupy book on the WRKO morning show with Tom and Todd
earlier today, taking calls and talking trash, when suddenly Todd
welcomes big time conservative cheese Andrew Breitbart on the line. I
don't think those guys were blindsiding me – I've always had
totally amicable chats with the crew over there – but I was
nonetheless taken aback.
The Boston Phoenix's PETER KADZIS made his weekly appearance on FOX25's "Heavy Hitters" segment this morning, going mano a mano with Cosmo Macero on Newt Gingrich's shocking poll numbers in Florida and Bruins crybaby Tim Thomas's Obama allergy. Click below to watch the video:

Look, he's not releasing his taxes. OK? We all know that's just a Democratic ploy to make us hate rich people. Well, on second thought: maybe. HARHARHAR. No, really, sorry, South Carolina: he'll release them right away, sirs. Some of them. He thinks. OK: just last year's. But that's it, Florida! Unless you choose Newt! In which case: whothefuckknows!
Follow along as David Bernstein @dbernstein and Chris Faraone @fara1 follow the #FITN primary results live.
Everyone's favorite Sunday-morning NBC debate zinger got its own website -- albeit a Z-grade, 12-year-old-with-a-geocities-account type website. But there's plenty to love about StopRomeysPiousBaloney.com -- for one thing, the Baloney-meter. For another, idiot-proof social-media buttons to share on Facebook and Twitter.
This weekend, while the entire Granite State was gripped with #FITN fever, our operatives leapt into the fray -- even infiltrating the Newt Gingrich phone bank -- to bring you only the finest in Robitussin-splashed gonzo campaign-trail journalism. No Vermin Supreme antic has gone unnoticed, no Santorum joke unmade.
best way to comprehend the nuts and bolts of the American political
machine is to work for it. And so I did. For Newt Gingrich.
in downtown Manch next to a cigar shop, the office broadcasts the
message that Newt wants you to know that the good people of New
Hampshire like him. Really like him.
About half our crew is still staggering around New Hampshire with those maniacs from the GOP, who continue to embarass themselves and their party. That goes double for the frontrunner, our old friend Mittens, who will probably lock up the nomination tomorrow -- much to the delight of progressives, whose job is right now being done for them by Newt Gingrich and his merry band of political suicide bombers.
only way to really dive into an early morning presidential debate is with a
little cough syrup. Or actually a lot of cough syrup. And so I swallowed a
gallon and went to check the happenings in Concord. This is not a metaphor.
The Occupy posse
was there. In full effect. And so were Ron Paul's homeys.
Oh, Rick Santorum. We're so going to enjoy your all-too-brief sojourn as a serious presidential candidate.
RICK SANTORUM: I DIDN'T SAY BLACK PEOPLE, I SAID BLAH PEOPLE. Did Santorum really equate black folks with welfare recipients? No, no no no. You must have misunderstood. Rick Santorum would never do that. Certainly not in front of a bunch of cameras during a town hall full of white folks in Iowa, a state where less than 10 percent of welfare recipients are black.
