The New York Times Can Suck It

Here at the Dose, we love harping on national shout-outs to lil’ Rhody.  For example, Ari went buckwild when Wonkette told our dear state to “suck it” during primary season.  Well, The New York Times hollered our way this weekend, taking a shot at our

“Hit a Jew” Day

When I was in middle school, class leaders would plan certain “Spirit Days,” aimed at infusing the usually-monotonous school week with something incredibly awesome, like “80s Day” or “Ghetto Day” (SO OFFENSIVE, DUH!) or “Island Day.”  Well, some middle school students in Missouri must have

Race-baiting McCain Volunteer Gets Her Comeuppance

When news broke last night that a McCain volunteer, Ashley Todd, had been mugged and assaulted by an angry 6’4” black man, an Obama supporter, I raised one eyebrow but hesitated to comment, fearful that Willie Horton was making a comeback in the American political

Justice For All

On my way to work each morning, I walk past the Attorney General’s office on South Main Street, and I never tire of giggling at the building’s inscription: With great power comes great responsibility. — Stan Lee Yesterday, it seems, this motto received more than

Reefer Madness

No wonder the General Assembly tabled progress on and the Governor vetoed dialogue about medical marijuana compassion centers… just look at what’s happened in California! In this week’s New Yorker, David Samuels offers an insanely long insider’s look at the cannabis culture of California post-Proposition

The People’s Convention

The Obama team stunned us all with their decision to move his nomination acceptance speech from the 19,000–seat Pepsi Center to the 76,000–seat Invesco Field, home of the Denver Broncos. Today, the Dems’ Convention Committee announced another exciting twist, in the form of three special
