I so badly wanted to use the word “corpuscular” to describe Chris Christie, but the dictionary says it means, “Any cell or similar minute body that is suspended in a fluid.” And while BridgeGate does have Christie suspended in very deep doodoo of his very own making , he’s no minute body, and that wasn’t really what…

Dear Fred Thompson, I’ve been so excited ever since you announced your bid for the throne GOP nomination for 2008, but today you left me confused. Did you not get the memo? I know Karl Rove is busy these days, what with his crumbling empire and dissent in the ranks, but I’d have thought he…

We all so love this shot of Der Popenfuhrer… such compassion he shows as he reaches out to remove the soul of recently deceased children or whatever the hell it is he does for a living when he’s not busy sharpening his teeth. But then, today, this shot ran on the internets of our favorite…

Katherine Harris (R-Disneyland, retired) was spotted at the SOTU handing out business cards to her former colleagues. You can’t help but wonder what services she would be offering. She doesn’t know shit about politics, she’s an incompetent fundraiser and a known liar — well, okay, that last one may actually be marketable among Republicans, but…

It was great to see AP vindicated in their recent epic battle against teh stupid, aka Michelle Malkin and her army of brain donors. All the same, AP still largely sucks at reporting without bias.

We rightly criticize that in most Islamic states, the role of religion for society and the character of the rule of law are not clearly separated […] but we fail to recognize that in the USA, the Christian fundamentalists and their interpretation of the Bible have similar tendencies. Former German chancellor Gerhard Schroeder in his…

“We live in a global world.” Thank you, President George W. Bush, for those words of wisdom. It’s so nice to have a Preznit who can edumacate us on the complexities of modern life. When he’s not busy telling fart jokes to his staff, of course. The profound insight was shared during a talk Thursday…

I’ve harped on this issue before — I guess you could call it an obsession of mine. So here I go again: I can’t stand the notion of people hurting kids in any way for whatever reason; moreover, callous indifference towards the suffering or death of kids is guaranteed to get me really riled up.…

It’s a match made — literally — in heaven. Just reading up on the latest GOP nonsense. Apparently our corrupt, incompetent Speaker of the House who is about to resign because of his total failure to do anything other than cover up for his friends in the massive GOP pedophile scandal,  Dennis Hastert (R –…

“Allright, boys and girls, you open your books to page 93 while I cover you…” Wisconsin State Representative Frank Lasee (R – duh!) wants to make it legal for teachers and other staff to carry guns. Not sure how he sees such a step as minimizing the damage guns are already causing in our schools; …
