Bring Out The Gimp!
Nobody in their right mind would vote for (fill in the blank). Gray Davis, Patrick Leahy, or Claire McCaskill pretty much fit that description. All three are (or were) useless intestinal parasites on the bowels of state. But what if they ran for re-election against The Gimp? Or at least an opponent who held held delusional beliefs in something called a “legitimate rape.” This is | Read More »
Mitt Had Better Worry About The Poor

My Endorsement This Year: Rick Santorum 2012
If you watch politics long enough, you’ll see a moment where the tragedy of a losing campaign gets so bad that you actually stop and laugh. It was the “Taliban Dan” ad back in 2010 that convinced me that Alan Grayson was off to his next stop on his professional career. Examples of this have abounded in the 2012 Republican Presidential Primary. Who can forget | Read More »

“Progress” Vs Thinking

He wrote an excellent diary that laid out the choices us as a nation face in 2012. He describes this as Obama’s Economy vs. the Path to Prosperity. The Obama Economy could also | Read More »
Mitt Romney and John F. Kerry – Parallel Lives?

Truth, BS, SS And Ponzi Schemes
“It is a Ponzi scheme for these young people. The idea that they’re working and paying into Social Security today, that the current program is going to be there for them, is a lie,” Perry said. “It is a monstrous lie on this generation, and we can’t do that to them.” (HT: Houston Chronicle) Governor Rick Perry has been known to unleash some fairly flamboyant | Read More »
What role did Palin play in the primaries? And why is the Left talking about her boobs?
There’s been a lot of talk about what yesterday meant for the Tea Party movement and specifically, how much Sarah Palin’s endorsements – which she handed out like candy – had to do with the wins and losses. How much of it was anti-incumbent rage? Anti-establishment rage? Anti-big government rage? Melissa Clouthier at Liberty Pundits writes: I don’t buy the whole anti-incumbent thing. I think | Read More »
