Abbott & Costello on Unemployment
And now for something completely different… I got the following in email of what Abbott and Costello would say if they tried to understand how Obama measures today’s joblessness. There’s enough truth in it to be amusing. ================= COSTELLO: I want to talk about the unemployment rate in America. ABBOTT: Good subject. Terrible times. It’s about 9%. COSTELLO: That many people are out of work? | Read More »
Why Mitt Romney was embraced by some in 2008, who’ve since let go.
It always surprises me when Republicans I know and respect — smart people, I tell you — ask, “If Mitt Romney was acceptable in 2008, then why isn’t he tolerable to those same people now?” The short answer is: we’re not in 2008 anymore, Toto. Next in Line It’s axiomatic that Republicans nominate whomever is “next in line.” Meaning, if someone fails in one election | Read More »

Birth control is NOT how we beat Obama. It’s the economy, stupid!
Imagine: you’ve been dealt 4-of-a-kind in your weekly poker tournament (never actually betting on it, since that would be illegal). You’ve got four jacks, and are feeling pretty good. Even better, you find out your opponent, by reading his ‘tell,’ has a busted hand, and is desperate. Now, with this scenario, do you: a) lure him in with a long, steady series of betting rounds | Read More »
Let’s Elect Newt the Unelectable Debater!
So, Newt won South Carolina! By a ton! Newt is da bomb! Actually, instead of a ticking time bomb, I envision Newt as more of a airship. Better yet, a dirigible, only because no one uses the word “dirigible” anymore. Sure, we see them on Fringe in the other universe, but does Olivia ever *say* to Peter, “where am I? oh look, a dirigible!” No. | Read More »
A recent satirical post wrote the GOP should vet Mitt Romney’s past dealings with Bain. Romney’s opponents shouldn’t do this because they hate capitalism (does anyone really believe that they do?). No, his foes should do it because if there are skeletons in that closet, we need to know about it now, before Mitt’s sealed the nomination. Was the Occupy Wall Street movement just a | Read More »
Let Obama Vet Mitt on Bain!
[The following is satire, written in the ironic tone. All candidates should be vetted on all issues before the general election. We apologize for any confusion. --The Mgmt] Why is everyone criticizing Mitt Romney all of a sudden? Even worse: Mitt Romney is being attacked for being a capitalist. And worst of all: by fellow Republicans! Leave Mitt alone! Clearly, this issue should not be | Read More »
Support the Troops with a Parade
For years during the long Iraq war, we heard from liberals that they support the troops. It was just the war they didn’t support. But darn it, don’t you even think about questioning their patriotism. Finally, after nine years of deployment, the last of our troops finally left Iraq last week. Yet, the Obama administration had planned no parade to welcome home our brave soldiers, | Read More »
