Have just screamed at my television; disingenuous Orrin Hatch, again arguing that, had Ted Kennedy been well during the whole health care debate, the Republigoats would have joined hands with the Dems and sang kumbaya and all. What a disingenuous bastard. If Republigoats were capable of meeting at the center, they would have done so. […]
Media Matters is worked up today because Lush Rimjob and the boys are treating Ted Kennedy badly. I think this comes under the What the Hell Did You Expect Department. Kennedy was a leading liberal and their sworn enemy. We should be surprised if they did not attack him. The more important question to ask […]
New York Governor David Paterson just signed into law a bill that bans texting while driving. Really. What’s next, a law that mandates common sense? This is not untypical of the way they make law in New York. Something bad happens and it gets a lot of publicity… in this case a car load of […]

Were Rep. Barney Frank allowed to use such language in public, he might have used my personal favorite curse in the world, “May your shit come to life and kiss you.” Because it is so special, it is a curse I reserve for very special occassions only. I think he would have been justified in […]
There will be many nice things said about Scowling Poo Robert Novak, who died today. Here is how I like to remember him: Now they’ll tell you that Novak was a tenacious, dogged reporter and a wonderful American who loved his country and was healthfully skeptical of government. There is, though, only one thing actually […]
