The Lying Nun

Have you ever secretly wanted to be a fly on the wall at a GOP fundraiser? No? Why not? Liberal infiltration at private events is what got us Mitt Romney’s infamous comments about the “47%” and, more recently, Republican Congresswoman Renee Ellmers’ comments that Republicans can reach those elusive lady voters as soon as they … Continue reading

Lester & Charlie’s Annual Prediction Poll!

Say what you want about 2013. But before you dismiss it, cranky style, for being as lousy as any other year you didn’t get everything you wanted from Santa, try to remember the few good things that happened in the last twelve months.

Sanford & Scum

This Week’s Poll!

I Am… I Said

This Week’s Poll! Republicans give themselves more reasons to exercise their God-given spin control muscles than Democrats do.

The Party’s Over

This Week’s Poll! Many viewers were thrown by how surprisingly nice they thought Mitt Romney’s concession speech was last Tuesday. “Short but gracious,” said the “Today” show. “Statesmanlike,” wrote BuzzFeed. Some pundits went so far as to speculate that we were at long last seeing “the real Mitt” and, if only he had campaigned as … Continue reading

Romney to the Rescue?

This Week’s Poll! Here at the Lester & Charlie Institute of Forward Thinking, we love to track current events! Though sometimes things get in the way.
