Sniffle “It was another sketch that gave us pause,” noted PopEater in an article titled SNL’ Lampoons Alleged Violence in Tiger Woods’ Marriage, on Sunday. ‘We think, had the genders been reversed, SNL wouldn’t make light of the potentially violent situation.’” Whatever Poop Eater. It’s a stupid TV show. It’s not serious. Get over your... [More]

The Festooned Turd

Stupid Independents “I think the economy is at the base of the tension,” she said. “Quite frankly, we’ve got to do a better job of messaging. There’s a lot of work to be done to get independents more comfortable with what we’re doing.” It’s not a message problem. It’s a substance problem. No matter how much you try to polish the turd Obama and the Democrats are trying to leave ... [More]


Hey, remember that time during the campaign when Candidate Obama said he was going to cut taxes for middle class families across the country? Me too. That was awesome. This is not awesome: Gregory Mankiw “A family of four with an income, say, of $54,000 would pay $9,900 for health care. That covers only about half the actual cost. Uncle Sam would pick up the rest. Now suppose that the sam... [More]

Charles Robinson This just fires me up. First of all, I hate it when journalists create problems that would not otherwise exist and then pretend that they were just doing their job. Second, no organization owns its employees. Certainly the Steelers and the NFL have a right to protect their legal and public integrity but that does not trump a free individual’s decision to weigh his own hea... [More]


Embrace it! “The inclination by some Democrats seeking reelection next year might be to run away from Obama and chart an independent path believing that he was at least partially to blame for the defeats of Corzine and Deeds. But Democratic strategists and activists caution that this is the wrong decision to make. In order to win in 2010, these Democrats said candidates need to embrace the p... [More]

Good Riddance Corzine

by Admin | Tags:
Adios I can’t speak for Virginia but I lived under Jon Corzine and the miserable Democratic leadership in The People’s Republic of New Jersey long enough to say: good riddance. It’s about time New Jersey started taking out the trash. Who knows if these new Republicans will be any better but it’s hard to imagine it getting any worse – at least in New Jersey. Julius Blo...

You think I’m kidding about eating Thomas Friedman.  Think of the world’s problems that could be solved if we simply adopted the strategy of eating the old, the infirm, the incarcerated and the homeless: Social Security crisis:  solved Depletion of natural resources and food sources:  solved Global Warming:  solved Health Care crisis:  solved Prison overpopulation:  solved Earth overpo...

Eat The Rich. Literally.

The Sky is Falling “New York Times columnist Thomas Friedman, for example, has made no secret of his envy for China’s ability to Get Things Done. In 2005, he wrote: ’I cannot help but feel a tinge of jealousy at China’s ability to be serious about its problems and actually do things that are tough and require taking things away from people.’ Last month, he lamented that the GOP’s...

Hilarity Ensues…

Sure… “Democrats issued a statement saying their 1,990-page measure ‘lowers costs for every patient’ and would not add to federal deficits.” When was the last time 2,000 pages of Congressional legislation lowered the cost of anything? The last time Congress told us they were doing what was right and necessary despite strong public opposition, they passed TARP. That... [More]

Hey Barack!

Hyperbole “Going forward, Obama promised, people will be protected from violence based on ‘what they look like, who they love, how they pray or why they are.’” But not based on what foods they eat or what cars they drive? It’s OK to beat someone up for those reasons then? Here’s an idea: how about protecting people form violence period? Do we really need to ... [More]
