Keeping the Obama Energy Going

During the week after the election, I attended a number of “victory parties” to celebrate our achievement. Mostly they were organized by people we had spent the previous three months campaigning with. Something about canvassing and phone banking and watch debates together really bonded us and we wanted to get together and have some fun that didn’t involve work! My […]

Oh So [UN]Classy

Oh So [UN]Classy

Bitter much? [Marilyn] Musgrave, a Republican who’s been representing Colorado’s 4th District since 2002, became part of the Republican Casualty List when she lost in a landslide, even after the National Republican Congressional Committee doled out almost a million bucks (reportedly $900,000) for her campaign. Two weeks after the brutal loss, Musgrave still hasn’t called her opponent to concede or […]

Ted Stevens: You’re FIRED!!!

Ted Stevens: You’re FIRED!!!

Convicted felon, Senator Ted Stevens (Douchebag-AK) has been defeated in his bid to retain his seat in Congress. He was the longest serving felon Senator in the Senate and the longest serving Republican Senator ever. His seat will be filled by Anchorage mayor, Mark Begich, a noted non-felon. And for that, the world rejoiced. Good-bye Senator Douchebag. Enjoy your time […]

Bailing Out the Auto Companies

I am so ambivalent about the entire discussion surrounding the Big Three auto companies asking for a $25 billion bailout. Truly ambivalent. First of all, I have been a loud and frequent critic of these dinosaurs of the business world. They have relentlessly pumped out gas-guzzling Humscalade after oil-gulping SubdivisionBlazer with absolutely no regard for either the environmental destruction they […]

The Bush Pillage Continues

It is sooooo good to be the king[‘s bankers]. For example, you can get a handout from the tax-payers of America to the tune of $154 BILLION and turn around and give your execs $504 MILLION in bonuses. Now that is sweet, you have to admit. That’s what you can do if you’re AIG, for example. And why can you […]

David Byrne on the Obama Victory + More

I am a fairly frequent reader of David Byrne’s journal/blog. He’s been pretty excited and upbeat and heartened by Barack Obama’s victory in the presidential election. As someone who travels the whole world over, I think his perspectives on the impact of this election on both the United States of America and on the world as a whole are worth […]

Speaking of Making Us All Dumber

Funniest damn thing on the innernets right now, no kidding: Joe the Plumber – SecureOurDream.com I’m pretty sure he bought his webpage at Wallmart. Just so we’re all straight: His name isn’t Joe. He’s not a licensed plumber. And he doesn’t always pay his taxes. Is he an “average Joe”? Maybe. Should you pay to read his blog or buy […]

Future of the Republican Party, My Ass

I just get the biggest laugh out of all this ridiculous talk about “Palin 2012” like she’s got some kind of serious shot at being on the top of the GOP ticket in 2012. Gimme a break. The woman can barely string together a coherent sentence without written remarks in front of her. She’s given one (ONE!) press conference since […]

Hey, I Admit It. I’m a Junkie.

Hey, I Admit It. I’m a Junkie.

Political junkie, that is. I never claimed otherwise. I’ve even infected my wife. You should have seen us during the last weeks of the election, sitting in the living room with our laptops blazing, checking out polls at Pollster, Gallup, 538.com, & Electoral-Vote.com, and reading and writing for the Huffington Post and the Daily Kos and Bob Cesca’s Goddam Awesome […]

Pajama Blogging

Home sick from work today having finally succumbed to a nasty cold. So here I am, in my jammies, checking the innernets for schtuff, and I find that Sarah Palin thinks that most of the unflattering things that were said about her came from bloggers “sitting in their parents’ basement, wearing their pajamas”. Then I watched this little tidbit that […]

We Can’t Believe It. We Just Can NOT Believe It.

Failure to Blow Election Stuns Democrats Just minutes after their party’s longstanding losing tradition lay in tatters on the ground, millions of shell-shocked Democrats stared at their television screens in disbelief, asking themselves what went right. For Democrats, who have become accustomed to their party blowing an election even when it seemed like a sure thing, Tuesday night’s results were […]
