Air America Radio: Gnow What?


The news was mixed to good to what the hell for those of us who plug in daily to the Air America Radio network, good because the troubled little network has a backer, mixed because Al Franken is hanging up his microphone—perhaps to chase bigger and better things—and to what the hell because Franken’s departure […]

It’s ‘Democratic’


I have established a small Web site called, meant to address the issue of the Republigoats’ insistence on dropping the “ic,” as did the current president during the State of the Union. I posted the verbiage over at Smirking Chimp, and then someone at Crooks and Liars linked it. Nice.

And You Thought Dick Sr. Was Scary


Liz Cheney’s opinion piece ran in yesterday’s Washington Post, but it is worth reexamining today. I am not certain that one central idea therin has sufficiently terrified the lot of us. Here is what the daughter of the current vice president wrote: “America faces an existential threat. This is not, as Speaker Nancy Pelosi has […]



The 60 Minutes interview of the current president certainly was useless, wasn’t it? Did we learn anything new? The current president believes in what he’s doing despite the facts, and also, that there is something horribly wrong with is brain. You’ve known a guy like this, haven’t you? A guy whose mannerisims seem somehow childlike, […]

A Peace Proposal


By Shel Silverstein Said General Clay to General Gore “Really must we fight this sill war To kill and die is such a bore” “I quite agree,” said General Gore Said General Gore to General Clay, “We could go to the beach today And have some ice cream on the way”. “A grand idea”, said […]

The War Is Stupid

…hanging from a telephone wire…


I think that if you’re a protestor type, and you intend to disrupt an ongoing public hearing, the least you can do is approach it with a sense of humor. Like, instead of standing up in the middle of Condie Rice’s testimony and barking LIAR LIAR LIAR LIAR or whatever that fella did this morning, […]

What I’m Hearing As I Listen To The Current President Speak On Television


Blah, blah, blah, I’m a lying douchebag. Blah, blah, blah, douchebag. Lie, lie, lie. Incompetence. Douchebag. Blah, blah, blah.

Geraldo Rivera Reveals He’s A Cannibal


Via Crooks and Liars: Apparently Geraldo was visiting with 104.1 FM’s Monsters just before Christmas, when they asked him about the time he made international headline for disclosing too much information about troops in Iraq. Geraldo claimed the incident was blown out of proportion, largely by NBC — and specifically Olbermann. Geraldo then began mumbling […]

Rolling Up Their Sleeves


I have just figured out why Republigoats are so eager to establish a “guest worker” program in the United States of America. It is because they believe that money grows on trees, and they are concerned that they will need someone to harvest it for them. I tuned in to C-Span Radio on the internets yesterday. I […]
