Sunday With Newt Gingrich

I am hard pressed to come up with anyone in American History (or World History for that matter) who has a bigger head than Newt Gingrich. Subjectively all one has to do is listen to him pontificate upon himself for 30 seconds, while objectively remembering that his high school football coach could not find a helmet…

Bush and Cheney – Impeachment or Execution?

People have a bad taste in their mouth about impeachment these days. In our lifetime we have had two. The first concerned covering up a bungled little burglary and the President resigned before the impeachment began, and the other for lying about a BJ. In comparison, our present President and Vice President have told thousands…

War on Xmas!

The big issue this week from the Right-wing media is the removal of nine Christmas trees from the Seattle airport. Just like the evil little penguins the week before, they were successful in getting the mainstream media to pick it up with videos of the actual dismantling and flashes of the evil Rabbi who instigated…

God is Dead

“God is dead.” That was Bubba’s eulogy when we had him over for dinner the other night. After his third wife left him, he hasn’t been eating well and Flower has been having him over often. “You mean Freidman, Bubba?” “Of course, the God of Economics. What a sad day, we will never be the…

Kill The Penguins

I wonder if this brouhaha is a sample of where conservative talk is going since the election. Into Telly Tubby mode. Gee, I hope so. I noticed a few telling tales in all this. First the list of the conservative propagandists in moving their crap into mainstream attention has grown. It is not just Limbaugh…

Milton Friedman – Good and Dead

If anyone could be said to be the father of the Libertarian Party, it would be Milton Friedman. Many men have had many bad ideas, but few have had the opportunity of putting them to such universal use. Father of supply side economics, Friedman is responsible for each of us paying 20% of our federal…

Constantinople

Not long ago one sniper in a Falluja building pinned down 150 Marines for a day. The Marines called in two air strikes, 35 rounds of 155mm artillery and pumped hundreds of rockets and 30,000 rounds of automatic rounds from helicopters and ground troops into the small building. A short time later the sniper killed…

Net Neutrality Made Simple

There is confusion on this issue which I will try to make short and simple. Think in terms of the "equal protection clause" of the 14th Amendment. A cabal of internet providers, namely the cable, satellite and phone companies, along with most of corporate America, want to charge what they will to whom they please…

Rush Limbaugh – A Pig is a Pig of Pork of Pork

     Rush Limbaugh is angry that Michael J. Fox is campaigning for stem cell research in Rush’s home state of Missouri. So angry in fact, that on his show the other day he had this to say about Parkinson’s sufferer Fox.  "He is either off his medication or acting. Shameless!"  Making fun of people…

One Fine Day After Election 2006

The real enjoyment of the election was that disgusting mouthy right-wing pig of propaganda, Rush Limbaugh is personally responsible for the GOP losing Missouri by mocking Michael J Fox. It was Limbaugh who gave the Democrats the Senate. His hat in hand concession speech the following day was fun. For someone whose constant refrain for…

Denial in the Rose Garden

Me! Me! Memememe! Ok Rack, this is your shot. Mr. President, you dumped Rumsfeld three years late, or three weeks late depending upon one’s party affiliation. After you and your party got your long overdue comeuppance, you blamed it upon good campaigning by the Democrats and bad election laws regarding write-in ballots. In fact four…

Rick Santorum – Top Talibanie Goes Down

The third ranked Republican and top ranked American Talibanie in the Senate lost in Pennsylvania. The 18 point spread was so large that both God and the Gop are now thinking twice about putting him on their short list for President in 2008 – though at his concession speech screams of SANTORUM 2008 dominated the…

JD Haywood Out On His Ass

A picture is worth a thousand words. A picture of what? Not quite sure. Most likely squeezing the phis out of a pinko liberal doll? A bloody fetus? God knows, but it was in the same time period he was submitting bills to silence the NY Times. Perhaps Hillary Clinton’s appendix which he had recently…
