Drinking Liberally : Liveblogging The Debates!

(5) Comments | Posted October 7, 2008 | 8:18 PM

The last question was the best. Here's what I don't know. I don't know why they even bothered with this Town Hall format. Why did they edited questions and cut the mic off afterwards? I don't know why we anoint people like Tom Brokaw to be the gatekeeper of open...

Side Stepping Statement? Take Drink. Depressed About Country? Take Drink. Blog!

END. FINAL. OVERRRR. Well, this debate was a pretty grueling exercise in tedium but I think I'm going to call it for Barack. He needed to come off presidential and he did. He showed up memorized, fact driven, and steady. McCain came off as agitated and fussy. Obama gave off...

Imagine showing up to a high-stakes boxing match with your gloves only to find your opponent has brought a knife. You look to the ref and see that his milky eyes won't focus because he's in fact blind. When you go to reason with the ref, he fumbles around you...

(16) Comments | Posted September 1, 2008 | 5:08 AM

If you asked Don Draper who he was pulling for in the election he would most likely say:
I'm a white male, elections don't affect me. But that's no fun. Here's what I imagine a commercial pitch might look like at the Sterling Cooper offices.

"Rock The Vote" Inspires No One To Change Their Facebook Status Or Voting Habits

Is it ever a good idea when Hollywood and DC promiscuously mingle?

A betting man would say: fuck no.

He'd say "Surely, you jest! Do you think today's youth, which revels in the way celebrities embarrass themselves on reality TV shows, allow their vaginas to fall out of their skirts,...

The Tyra Factor ( Or The Five People More Damaging To Obama Than McCain Is)

(32) Comments | Posted August 6, 2008 | 12:21 PM

Unless there's some terrorist attack or legions of the undead rise from their graves, I seriously doubt John McCain is going to win the election. He's such a pathetically weak candidate with such an abysmal campaign, Obama feels like a sure shot.

HOWEVER. He won't be if these assholes don't...

Five Staffers McCain Should Fire

Sloppy. Desperate. Indecent.

Senator McCain, that is how your campaign has been described. It's time to attack. Allow me, in my infinite charm, to get your blood up.

Goddamnit solider!

I expect these type of undisciplined campaign shenanigans by some pudgy, no neck, shit-eating...

Logo War: McCain Makes Me Feel Like A Schoolgirl In All The Wrong Ways

(10) Comments | Posted July 8, 2008 | 10:55 PM

Anyone who grew up in public school should immediately shudder at the sight of the McCain logo. It's an uncanny rip off of the old Thomson-Peterson's textbook logo.

Typical: old dogs, new tricks.

Consider this post the rolled up newspaper that's used to swat a dog across its snout after the pooch takes a shit in the middle of the kitchen floor. This time the kitchen floor is the interweb....

Barackalypse Now!: Boomers Hope That 'Bama Will Bring The Death Of Bling. Bitch, PLEASE!

(5) Comments | Posted June 23, 2008 | 2:53 AM

Last week another Huffpo blogger levied a verbal assault on a cornerstone of my generation: bling. The cyber siege made the dubious connection between the only two things that get my blood up these days: bling and Barack Obama:

Lately I've been wondering what an Obama White House...
