Friday Talking Points -- Every Sulfurous Belch 29.8.2015 Politics on HuffingtonPost.com
OK, I fully admit I stole that title. Well, maybe not "stole," since I'm about to give it proper credit, but it certainly wasn't my own original idea. The line comes from George Will, and (of course) refers to Donald Trump. Part of the fun for Democrats this summer has been watching the angst of serious-minded conservative columnists as they realize how large a portion of the Republican base doesn't really care what serious-minded conservatives inside the Beltway think about much of anything. Will was the best (but by no means only) example of this last week, as he started his column off with a real humdinger of an opening paragraph: Every sulfurous belch from the molten interior of the volcanic Trump phenomenon injures the chances of a Republican presidency. After Donald Trump finishes plastering a snarling face on conservatism, any Republican nominee will face a dauntingly steep climb to reach even the paltry numbers that doomed Mitt Romney. Ah, c'mon George... tell us how you really feel about Trump! ...

Hottest...July...Evah! 28.8.2015 Green on HuffingtonPost.com
July was hot. It was the hottest July on record, but more than this: it was the warmest month ever recorded on Earth. Let that sink in a moment. The first seven months of 2015 were all record breakers, and 2015 is on track to take the record for warmest recorded year. As Paris Hilton likes to say, "That's hot." Data show that the global average surface temperature in July was 61.86oF, breaking the 1998 record by 0.14 degrees.   Nineteen ninety-eight was the year of the last huge El Niño event, and most forecasts predict a similarly large event this year. El Niños tend to raise worldwide temperatures, and also to create mischief in places like California, parts of which haven't received rain in a very long time. El Niño rains in California often double the normal annual rainfall -- all falling in a few weeks, with storm after soupy storm drenching the state. This deluge leads to landslides. The gigantic Mission Peak Landslide above Fremont initiated after the 1998 El Niño rains, and the slide has been ...

The Definitive History Of 'George Bush Doesn't Care About Black People' 28.8.2015 Politics on HuffingtonPost.com
In the moments before he took the stage at NBCUniversal's " A Concert for Hurricane Relief " on Sept. 2, 2005, Kanye West looked calm.  Up to that point, the charity telethon for Hurricane Katrina's victims had gone as well as could have been expected, considering that it had been slapped together in a matter of days. That it happened at all was a credit to executive producer Rick Kaplan's team. Kaplan and his crew had worked hard to make sure things would go smoothly on the set, and celebrities, including  Leonardo DiCaprio, Harry Connick Jr. and Lindsay Lohan , had agreed to say whatever needed to be said and play whatever needed to be played. "All the stars we contacted -- Aaron Neville, Tim McGraw, Faith Hill -- I mean, everyone came in and was willing to do whatever they could do," Kaplan remembers now. "Everyone was totally cooperative." West was cooperating, too. The hip-hop sensation's second studio album, "Late Registration," had come out that week. West, who was scheduled to appear on stage ...
