Bless Her Heart

29-Feb-08

What Else, Robin? If you’re in the mood for a light, stupid movie this weekend and you’ve yet to see Mike Judge’s Idiocracy, then go get it. It’s utterly dumb, but it’s very funny, and it’s also an effective satiric commentary on the wicked spectre of unchecked corporatism. Brawndow’s got electrolytes. It’s got what plants […]

Get Ready For The RNC To Use 'Hussein' in Obama's Name a LOT

28-Feb-08

RNC denounces use of ‘Hussein’ in Obama’s name (CNN) – Republican National Committee Chairman Mike Duncan formally denounced Thursday the Tennessee Republican Party’s use of Barack Obama’s full name in a recent press release questioning the Illinois senator’s commitment to Israel. “The RNC rejects these kinds of campaign tactics,” RNC Chairman Mike Duncan said in […]

Perhaps Not So Zany.

From this morning’s edition of The Washington Post. For Katrina Evacuees, A Chance to Be Heard Their Votes May Be Pivotal in Texas HOUSTON — In a cramped guard booth on the edge of a community of luxury townhouses, the sense of helplessness that has become so familiar to Gregory Sam since Hurricane Katrina uprooted […]

Here's What Happens

24-Feb-08

On March 4, Barack Obama will win the Republic of Tejas with double digit margins. Unfortunately, Hillary Clinton will win Ohio by 5 or 6 points. Since she, not Obama, is actually the candidate “using tactics that are right out of Karl Rove’s playbook,” Hillary Clinton will follow this meek win with a barnburner of […]

How Hillary Clinton Could Decimate Obama In Tejas.

22-Feb-08

It is my zany notion that Hillary Clinton could really bring it to Barack and could redirect the national spotlight to a place that really could use it right about now all in one shot. Bear in mind, the idea comes from left field. But I think it could save her candidacy. Mrs. Clinton should […]

A Tin Foil Beanie Perspective On The McCain Story

21-Feb-08

Let’s pretend that I’m a Republigoat strategist of some kind, a real movement conservative, maybe a Huckaboo fan, maybe even somewhat of an Arthur Dimmesdale “more weight” kind of guy. And I am very concerned that there’s not enough talk going on in this campaign about a certain bereted cheeky brunette and her kneepads, because […]

You’d have thought I was rooting for a football team last night when NBC reported the Obama win in sunny Wisconsin. Going in, I thought it’d be a squeaker, but 58 to 47 percent, that isn’t a squeaker. Hawaii was just cake on the icing. So then out comes Hillary Clinton in sunny Youngstown, pulling […]

Let's Do A Do-Over, At Least in Florida

18-Feb-08

As you know: The Florida State Legislature at some point voted to move the Florida primary to Jan. 29, and the Democratic Party told Florida to Sit On It. The Democrats tried to go back to the State Legislature to get it changed BACK, and, guess what? Florida Republigoats pointed at them and laughed. As […]

Based on a True Story

14-Feb-08

The Republigoat Congressman left the hall after having called a procedural vote during a memorial for the late Rep. Tom Lantos. The man approached him with his box. “Here,” said the man. “Poop in this.” “What?” asked the Congressman. “Why would I poop into that?” “Because this box is magic. Because if you poop into […]
