Betcha By Golly Wow!

By now, surely you’ve heard the awesome news that Sarah Palin launched her own subscription-based online network — The Sarah Palin Channel — where everyone’s favorite half-wit can reach her huddled masses directly and bypass those pesky “politically correct” media filters. And it’s only $9.95 a month! When we heard the news about PalinTV we … Continue reading

Let the Evolution Begin

AN ANNUAL TRADITION “There is no confusion like the confusion of a simple mind.” ~The Great Gatsby The American Revolutionary War began today in 1775. And just like Christmas isn’t Christmas until you’ve pulled the plastic tree out of the box in the attic, April 19th doesn’t feel right without letting Sarah Palin explain the … Continue reading

This Is Why We Can’t Have Nice Things

Obama’s State of the Union address gave conservatives a lot of opportunities to run their crazy flags up the proverbial vaginal probe this week. Faced with a Congress in serious need of maximum strength ex-lax®, Obama laid out a plan for legislating by Executive Order — raising the minimum wage for federal contractors, for one, … Continue reading

Yak to Basics

The GOP has been squirming more than usual this week, now that their darling rising star, New Jersey governor Chris Christie, has been “embarrassed and humiliated” on a national stage because of a breathtakingly mean and misguided act of revenge. Some pundits say Christie’s bridge scandal has seriously weakened his chances of securing the presidential … Continue reading

Everything Must Go!

This Week’s Poll! History, it is said, is written by the victors. In North Carolina, apparently, that history will be written by Sharia-fearin’, teacher-salary slashin’ white people totin’ guns into their favorite playgrounds and bars. Why do we say this? Well, because there’s no question who the victors are in North Carolina, at least not … Continue reading

Rush’s Revisionist Reading Rainbow

This Week’s Poll! Paul Revere sure gets around! No more is he merely riding around at midnight “ringing those bells” and sending “warning shots” to tell the British that they can’t take away our guns. Nope. Turns out Paul Revere can be anywhere he wants to be — now that he has a time-traveling horse! … Continue reading

The Week in Politics

The Week in Politics The highlight of politics this week is not what happened, but what didn’t happen. We all remember this famous photograph from last year when Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer (R-Psychoville) took time away from counting headless bodies in the Arizona desert to tell President Obama that she’s a very unhappy person: But … Continue reading

This Week’s Poll! Unless you live on a distant planet – like the 6th district of Minnesota – you’ve already heard the shocking thing Michele Bachmann said this week. Yes, we know that she’s shocked you before – calling for a new McCarthyism, telling mothers that vaccines cause retardation, claiming that scrapping the minimum wage … Continue reading

Michele’s Too Sexy for Her Skirt

This Week’s Poll! Has it ever occurred to you that Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann — the woman who thinks God sends earthquakes to shrink the government, who thinks it’s an “interesting coincidence” when flu outbreaks happen under Democratic presidents — has it ever occurred to you that Bachmann may have a void inside her? Well, … Continue reading

John McCain is Sick and Tired of His Outrage!

This Week’s Poll! Wow. Everything, it seems, is outrageous these days. All of it! Not a mouth in D.C. can open up without the sound of outrage spewing. And it’s not just the GOP that’s up in arms, this time. Not since New Coke have we as a nation seen a disaster that both sides … Continue reading
