Pelosi Puts Fingers In Ears, Yodels Loudly
Or, in which Pelosi tells the White House to get off her lawn… So a big story (at least in our circles) from Sunday was the belated admission from White House Press Tool — ahem, Secretary — Robert Gibbs that, like we’ve been saying for months, there’s actually a chance that the Democrat House Caucus will lose their majority in November. First, welcome back to | Read More »
Specter to Bachmann: Make Me A Sammich, Woman!
Y’know, for a guy who constantly gets hung up on “civility,” this party-hopping pissant sure can sling the insults. The exchange, broadcast on 1210 AM’s Dom Giordano Show [but not archived on the station's site], began when Specter challenged Bachmann to articulate what, exactly, she stands for, according to a readout on the clash published by the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette’s lively Early Returns blog. Bachmann first | Read More »
Chris Matthews is a Moron Wrapped in an Idiot
He’s ticked me off big-time, this time. In a discussion on tonight’s episode of Hardball of what the Democrats’ options would be in the event of a Scott Brown victory, Chris Matthews said this: You have GOT. To be kidding me. Audie Murphy served twenty-seven months in the European Theater of World War II. At least a year of that time, it appears he was | Read More »

Video of Erick, Colbert-and-MoJo Style
Okay, I’ve waited all day for Erick to be a self-promoting blowhard, and it seems that he’s not gonna do it. So darnitall, I’m gonna do it for him. Here is our lovable fuzzball himself on Colbert: And here, in a longer segment, is the same fuzzball making an appearance on this morning’s edition of Morning Joe: Awriiiiiiight.
And The Only National Republican Helping in Massachusetts is:
Mitt Romney. Please pardon my snickering. You see, I’ve been seeing Ed Morrissey and other bloggers pound the table (don’t misunderstand me, I want them to do so) about how the RNC gave Scozzy Bear a million bucks to lose a primary — and then endorse the Democrat. But I digress. The RNC was there for The Scozz, and now they’re not there for Scott | Read More »
Newt Gives A Heckuva Speech.
I know, I know, Newt is on the outs with the conservative movement ever since NY-23. And quite honestly, he deserves it. But in the category of “broken clocks are right twice a day,” Newt really hits the ball out of the park in this speech. He’s aging into RINOhood, but this is excellent. More on why, after you watch the video. Toward the end | Read More »
What’s A Fella Gotta Do…
…for the nutroots to notice his existence? In my daily exercise of trawling the interwebs for something that makes me laugh, I was skimming through the Daily Kos; and I found a headline that caught my eye: Why there will never be a right-wing dKos: and why they can’t find more/better Republicans. Now I’m always interested in the mental contortions of the opposition grassroots — | Read More »
In Which I Finally Nuke The Fridge
Oh yes, I’ve done it this time. In case you’ve not seen the horrifically bad Indiana-Jones-Meets-X-Files movie, the title refers to the updated version of The Fonz jumping the shark; at one point during this movie, Indiana Jones climbs inside an old refrigerator to survive a nuclear detonation. It works. Later in the movie, we are expected to fear for his safety when he engages | Read More »
The lame-duck British Government can’t get crushed out of existence fast enough. Israeli officials reacted angrily Thursday night to a British decision to advise retailers and importers to use labels to distinguish between West Bank produce being grown in the settlements or by Palestinians. One official charged that Britain was singling out Israel and encouraging a boycott. According to a statement released by the British | Read More »
