Another huge lie and abuse of trust that will be called a faux scandal

The sad thing is that I am not surprised at all to find out that the DOJ and the FBI all told a coordinated lie, right before the 2012 election, to make the most incompetent and dirty administration of my lifetime look like less of the fucking evil idiots they are, and that is what I suspect will be the reaction of many others. At this point I would be willing to give someone … Read more

The Endorsements We Don’t Need

Thankfully, our long national nightmare is about to end. (And, two days later, another will likely begin). I won’t make predictions. I’ll just repeat what I said in the comments: if the polls are right, Obama will win. If they’re wrong, Romney will. Polls are interesting, but they are not reality. We know the shape of the wave function. But it won’t collaps until tomorrow.

I’ve made my choice clear and I think it’s pretty … Read more

Your Daily Threat-Down


Just a week after Westgate Resorts CEO David Siegel wrote a partially plagiarized letter threatening to fire employees if they voted for Obama, now comes news that Koch Industries is taking a similar approach by using its position as a major employer to influence elections. According to an In These Times report, the Koch-owned Georgia Pacific sent a packet to its 45,000 employees earlier his month. The packet included a cover letter from

The 47%

You’ve certainly heard about this by now:

During a private fundraiser earlier this year, Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney told a small group of wealthy contributors what he truly thinks of all the voters who support President Barack Obama. He dismissed these Americans as freeloaders who pay no taxes, who don’t assume responsibility for their lives, and who think government should take care of them. Fielding a question from a donor about how he could

Finally, A Dem I Can Get Behind

Today is definitely a day of firsts for me. Not only was I rooting for the Denver Broncos to win a game (them and the Cowboys could lose their next 50 games in a row for all I care) the Tebow critics get to eat shit for another week, but I found a Democrat that actually makes sense to me:

I don’t know what all the hub bub is about, an admitted fascist who admits … Read more

Uncle Paul

Jon Stewart has a point:

Ron Paul finished second in the Iowa straw pole, but you wouldn’t know it from the media coverage. This is hardly an isolated incident. As Tim Carney notes:

If Paul had garnered 153 more votes on Saturday, winning the straw poll, you can be sure that every wrap-up

One Up, One Down

Tim Pawlenty is dropping out after yesterday’s disappointing result in the Iowa straw poll, which was won by Bachmann. I’m surprised. Pawlenty wasn’t too far back in the non-crazy division of the GOP field. But it’s become clear that he’s not going to overtake Romney. I suspect there are structural problems within the campaign as well.

However, as the GOP field lost one governor, it gained another in Ricky Perry. Perry’s appeal is mostly due … Read more
