Drop It Like It’s Hot

By Jesse Taylor

Hillary Clinton is dropping out while she’s on top. Unfortunately, these things always come in trilogies, so I just hope that the next dropout happens against a highly efficient Japanese team of candidates.

No Hamas! No Hamas!

By Jesse Taylor

Hamas unendorses Obama. One day as the nominee, and he’s already alienating supporters. We’re in trouble.…


Cranky Wants Your Vote

By Jesse Taylor

After having (mostly) navigated through the sociopolitical minefield that was Obama vs. Clinton in terms of race and sex, we now get another area to broach: John McCain is old.
