John McWeirdsmile. Still a Disingenuous Asshole.


DADT hearings today. Here’s something what happened. The Secretary of Defense, Robert Gates, who you might remember also held that post during the administration of Chimpy McCokespoon, came out (no pun intended) in support of ending DADT. He referenced the statement of the President of the United States during the SOTU, saying: The question before […]

Just as Dim as You Thought


A while ago, I wrote that, perhaps, a sitting senator ought to know the difference between the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence. Now, a 60 Minutes interview reveals that twice-failed presidential candidate John McWeirdsmile nearly brought into the White House a person who was even less informed a person than is John Boner. In […]

Keep Digging!


If Prudence Palin were smart (snort!), she’d stop talking in front of television cameras, return immediately to Anchorage, and go to work in a soup kitchen. The cameras would still be present, but she would come across as a person of substance rather than as the self-contradicting boob we continue to see today. Palin will […]

And I Believe That You Need To Stay The Hell In Alaska

Hank the Angry Presidential Candidate


There is an adage that has never made much sense to me, that one can “catch more bees with honey than with vinegar.” Why anyone would want to catch a bee is beyond me. Nonetheless, someone should utter this phrase, perhaps with the addendum “or with a machete” attached, to the political campaign of Hank […]

It's Not A Gaffe, and It's No Surprise


gaffe also gaff (gf) n. 1. A clumsy social error; a faux pas: “The excursion had in his eyes been a monstrous gaffe, a breach of sensibility and good taste” Mary McCarthy. 2. A blatant mistake or misjudgment. Words often become so misused and bent out of shape that they lose the originally intended meaning. […]

The Cornered Rabid Elephant


Here’s what I think, as I ponder the news of the last few days up until the very last few miliseconds, as I hear that John McWeirdsmile says he now does not want to debate on Friday due to the “economic” “crisis.” I think you are witnessing a political aparatus with its back to the […]
