McCain's Last Stand

(10) Comments | Posted October 4, 2008 | 1:40 PM

The Republicans are in full blown panic mode. Their candidate is a dud. Their VP candidate is brainless. The issues are against them. The polls have swung. All they have left is attack. And it's about to start. A barrage of personal attacks unlike anything we've ever seen is coming....

IDEAS FOR PALIN CAMPAIGN ADS

(10) Comments | Posted August 30, 2008 | 1:51 PM

Since we all saw the McCain ad after Obama announced Biden in which Biden was praising McCain, I say it's time to put up an ad on the Palin pick. Here's a quick suggestion:

Show a series of clips with McCain talking about what he's looking for in a VP....

Rounding Sad and Heading For Laughingstock

(3) Comments | Posted May 8, 2008 | 4:39 PM

For the longest time, I've tried to explain to my 8 year old son that the reason Hilary won't give up is that she's a fighter. That it isn't bad sportsmanship. That as long as she has a chance, she has the right. Now, just to be clear, I've known,...

Oh No, He Drank Orange Juice at the Bowling Alley!

(6) Comments | Posted April 14, 2008 | 1:06 PM

(WARNING: THIS POST MAY BE OFFENSIVE TO IDIOTS.)

In case you were wondering whether or not you're an idiot, wonder no more:

If you think it's important that a candidate is a bad bowler, or drinks orange juice instead of coffee, then you are an idiot!

If you think that...

"If one candidate is trying to scare you, and the other's trying to get you to think; if one is appealing to your fears, and the other is appealing to your hopes - it seems to me you ought to vote for the person who wants you to think and hope."

The Obama Mommas

(12) Comments | Posted February 25, 2008 | 11:53 PM

According to most polls white women are still supporting Hillary. Some in the media (no doubt spun by the Clinton campaign) are trying to claim that Barack will have a hard time swaying this important demographic group over to his side in the general. To this I say, keep dreaming....

Barack Should Tell Hillary To Go Fox Herself

(197) Comments | Posted February 5, 2008 | 3:52 PM

Today Hillary agreed to enrich Rupert Murdoch and Roger Ailes by going on their air and debating for the democratic nomination. Please, Barack, don't join her in the mud. It's a trick. You will come out looking so much better if you don't fall for it. They'll spin it,...

Please, Hillary, Fire Karl Rove!

(65) Comments | Posted January 16, 2008 | 4:06 PM

I know I sound like a conspiracy theorist here, but bare with me. I'm starting to think that Karl Rove is secretly on the Clinton payroll. How else do you explain the recent attempt to swiftboat Obama on Iraq? Rove's fingerprints are all over it. Take an opponent's greatest strength...

Time to Let Them Kill Each Other

(15) Comments | Posted May 22, 2007 | 6:58 PM

What I'm about to suggest here is repugnant, and beyond politically incorrect, but I'm going to suggest it anyway.

To all those republican pundits, and politicians who claim that if we leave Iraq it will become a bloodbath, I say this: If they want to kill each other... let...

Who's Your Daddy?

(12) Comments | Posted May 3, 2007 | 5:40 PM

Jenna and Barbara had it easy. Not because they were born into one of our royal families, but because they were allowed to do whatever the hell they wanted whenever the hell they wanted to. Does anyone honestly believe there were consequences for bad behavior in the Bush household? Lord...

The Crazy 33

(13) Comments | Posted April 26, 2007 | 2:18 PM

I have a confession to make. Every morning, as I procrastinate getting to work by reading the internets (mostly being preached to by people I agree with in lockstep), I wind down this time by dipping a toe into hostile waters. I read exactly one right wing blog. It's called...

A One Word Plan to End the War: Draft!

(25) Comments | Posted April 10, 2007 | 5:51 PM

Political suicide, you say? Maybe. But just maybe that's what it will take to finally and collectively wake us up. Because this war has been fought by such a small minority of our people, it feels to too many like it's happening to someone else. Too many of us are...

Friends Don't Let Presidents Drink and Drive!

(6) Comments | Posted January 3, 2007 | 8:41 PM

Memo to all Republicans:

Have you ever been out drinking with your friends, and watched as one of the group climbed behind the wheel after having one too many? Did you stop them? Did you want to? Surely you would have if you knew they'd be killed on their...

Double Down

(11) Comments | Posted December 14, 2006 | 8:28 AM

As we speak, the whale hunters in Las Vegas are salivating over the prospect of getting the gamblers in Bush's inner circle on a chartered jet to sin city. They seem obsessed with the notion of doubling down in Iraq. Well, guess what losers, you double down when the hand...
