Dear America, Please Don't Fall for This Shit Again

(2819) Comments | Posted November 5, 2012 | 9:34 PM

This election season there's a billowing cloud of misinformation being sprayed into the American psyche like a burping tail pipe on a primered Vega.

And its smoke is thicker and blacker than ever before thanks to the Citizen's United Supreme Court decision.

Billions have been spent for one purpose...

The F Word

(658) Comments | Posted June 20, 2012 | 9:31 AM

You know how in every heist movie they get past the security cameras that show the hallway leading to the diamonds by jamming the screens with a fake signal of everything looking safe and quiet? Usually a guard coughs so they don't notice the blip from switching to the bogus...

The 6 Dumbest Protests Ever

(368) Comments | Posted November 10, 2011 | 9:36 PM

With Penn State students protesting and rioting over the firing of football coach Joe Paterno, who participated in the cover-up of a serial child molester who happened to be his defensive coordinator, many have wondered what those students could possibly be thinking. With that in mind, we here at Funny...

Why Won't Hawaii Produce Documents Proving It's a State?

(299) Comments | Posted April 27, 2011 | 1:00 PM

Finally the president has responded to Republican pressure and produced irrefutable evidence that he was born in the "state" of Hawaii. But now it's time Hawaii answer doubters and produce documents proving that it is a state. What are they hiding? And why haven't we seen these documents?

Public Domain Protest Song!

(230) Comments | Posted April 19, 2011 | 9:37 AM

Music is an entertainment slash art form that doesn't suffer B.S. well. Sure you can sing songs about benign subjects like having a crush or wanting a Benz but try and sing a song about how the Koch Brothers need more tax breaks or how teacher's unions are overpaid and...

Send a Thank You From China to Our Leaders: A Call to Action

(263) Comments | Posted December 9, 2010 | 12:16 AM

The extension of the Bush tax cuts for people making over $250,000 a year is madness in the face of a crumbling economy and an outsourced-to-death job market (remember factories and union jobs anyone?). I'm mad as hell to see my country become a dysfunctional 3rd world banana republic because...

Don't Do It, California

(463) Comments | Posted October 4, 2010 | 11:16 PM

Please California, don't elect Meg Whitman as our Governor.

For real. Don't do it.

I have children that live here in this state and I don't think we can stand another "tough yet fair" Republican corporatist who could give a shit about the bottom 90 percent.

An Open Letter to the State of Alabama

(185) Comments | Posted March 10, 2010 | 6:28 PM

Hey Alabama, first off, congrats on the stellar season the Crimson Tide had. Wow. That defense is nasty. I spent some time in Alabama when we shot Talladega Nights. We stayed in Birmingham. I had what may have been the best ribs ever and also found a great restaurant...

Citizens United: A Week Later

(561) Comments | Posted January 25, 2010 | 6:33 PM

I had planned to write a piece for HuffPost about having serious hang time with all the corporations now that thanks to the Supreme Court they've achieved the full Pinocchio-like state of (cue magical gliss) "person-hood." I was going to treat the Corps like "bros" I was picking up for...

What the Hell is Going On?

(296) Comments | Posted May 12, 2009 | 10:53 AM

"What the Hell's Going On?" It's a simple yet completely fair question given all that's happened over the last nine years. But still, there is almost no unified consensus to this question in the U.S. Try asking friends and family. Feel free to present it as a party game....

(46) Comments | Posted October 24, 2008 | 5:20 PM


Presidential candidate John McCain and running mate Sarah Palin attempted to manage the surprise endorsement of Barack Obama by Senator John McCain this past Thursday. McCain was dismissive of his 100% endorsement and even took a few shots at himself after the announcement.

"When all is said and...

Am I Crazy or was that an Ass Whuppin'?

At last, a Democratic candidate I actually want to have a beer with. I know this idiotic standard is more marketing ad agency speak than actual criteria for elected office but it is a pleasant surprise from the usually tone deaf to the real world Dems. Not only do I...

Obama Didn't Give Secret Code to Terrorists; Wins Debate

(127) Comments | Posted September 27, 2008 | 1:58 AM

Tonight was an easy game plan for Obama; don't accidentally say the "C" word and don't grow a beard at the last second and talk about banning kite flying. Because of a slew of frankly insane emails that have circled this country for the past few months claiming that...

Debate time is approaching and it's gonna be juicy. When was the last presidential debate where there were concerns about one of the candidates even showing up? I wouldn't be surprised if Obama was stood up and then they cut to a feed of McCain being interviewed by Katie Couric....

Vetting the Candidates: An American Tradition

(114) Comments | Posted April 25, 2008 | 11:40 AM

America is a country that prides itself on being able to identify a "straight shooter" or "the genuine article" when it comes to our leaders. As a nation we can "feel it in our gut" when someone is giving us a bum steer. We have a free press ("Free press"...
