Awesome

We were worried that wingnuts were going to challenge the legitimacy of Obama’s presidency. That he won in a blowout (at least by modern standards) dampened that concern a bit. But don’t get too relaxed, folks. Some newspaper readers in Sapulpa are upset by what wasn’t in the paper. The…

I Enjoyed The Obama Impeachment

Oh, my! Barack Obama is a one-termer! I’m going to go invest the dividends from my future Palin Prosperity Fund right now! But don’t you take credit for that, Mr. Socialist Obama Man, oh no – I know how you people are. By “you people” I meant “actual Presidents of…

A skeleton of the Veteran’s Day post I meant to write

Something kept getting in my eye. Smile, Smile, Smile Head to limp head, the sunk-eyed wounded scanned Yesterday’s Mail; the casualties (typed small) And (large) Vast Booty from our Latest Haul. Also, they read of Cheap Homes, not yet planned; For, said the paper, “When this war is done The…

The future of the Republican party?

This guy and the McCain/Palin rally mobs are all that will be left of the GOP if they don’t remake their party ASAP. Back in October Michigan Messenger uncovered the fact that at least two Republican precinct delegates were tied to white supremists. One of them was Randy Gray of…

The aftermath of September 11th saw the fully-fledged legitimization of what was affectionately referred to as “even-the” liberalism. Inspired by Mickey Kaus’…

The N-bomb is dropped on black passersby at Prop 8 protests

UPDATE: the openly gay president of People for the American Way, Kathryn Kolbert, has released a statement. It’s below the fold. You could see this coming, and this is what I’m talking about when you ignore the elephant in the room. Rod McCullom of Rod 2.0 blogs reports on the…

Decidedly Racial Obama Goes Racial

Barack Obama just called himself a “mutt” during his press conference. I’m going to love the shit out of the next eight years.…

Republicans meet to perform autopsy on its rotting corpse

Republicans heavy-hitters across the party’s currently tiny political spectrum are going to go into retreat to do an autopsy on this election and their branding. Do they really have to think all that hard about what went wrong? The meeting in Shenandoah Valley is the first of scores of inquests…

Jennifer Rubin has thirty reasons (thirty!) that McCain didn’t win, which can be boiled down to one: despite his constant flirtation with the idea, he never pulled a full wingnut. Let’s start with error number one that McCain made: Not pursuing the Reverend Wright connection, as an issue of judgment…
