Bill Clinton of the McCain Campaign


As noted at the KIAV earlier this week: When on Earth are the Clintons going to stop endorsing John McWeirdsmile from the stump? In Lewistown, Pa., Clinton is paraphrased as saying Clinton is a “moderate” who “has given about all you can give for this country without dyin’ for it.” Good, Bill. Play up the […]

God Bless America


Those still upset with the cherry-picked rhetoric of Rev. Jeremiah Wright should revisit for a moment the night of Sept. 18, 2007, a YouTube of which is embedded above. This was the night of the “Values Voter Debate,” which was introduced with a choral rendition of a revamped “God Bless America,” “Why Should God Bless […]

Thank You, Pat Buchanan


For awhile, several group house incarnations back, I had my Tivo upstairs (I refuse to capitalize the “v” on sheer principal). I thought I could share the glory of the thing with the group of the group house, you know? So it was an odd comment by that then sort of dumb housemate, who chided […]

It Frustrates You and Annoys the Pig


I do wish that people would stop with the inept political analogies. I don’t think it is off the mark to suggest that Godwin’s Law—the first person in an argument to analogize in some fashion to Hitler loses the argument—can extend to other attempted historical analogies.

Thanks to the protesters for getting it right on the nose… In the heady rush of the ongoing presidential campaign, I cannot help but wonder where these Untied States of America would be on today’s tragic anniversary of the invasion […]

They're Just Words


Are You Experienced?


We here at Crack Whores for Good Government hate to keep revisiting this goddamned ‘experience’ issue. But the fact is that there are so many ways that this charge against the senator from Illinois crumbles that it’s hard not to continue writing about it. You see, on March 1, 2008, the Virginia Supreme Court issued […]

Bob Graham is Smart


“I don’t believe there is a school you can go to, to train to be commander-in-chief. I think the qualities you are looking for would include judgment, the willingness to surround yourself with strong people, listening to a diversity of ideas, and then forming a conclusion. I think curiosity is important. If there had been […]



In light of a survey showing that the American public isn’t generally aware of the casualty count in Iraq, we here at Crack Whores for Good Government have decided that the most important link that can be placed is the new button at the upper right-hand of this fine Weblog, the Iraq Coalition Casualty Count.
