NO DEATH PENALTY IN MAINE MADAM CASE; HYPOCRISY ALIVE AND WELL

Prostitution in the old Massachusetts Bay Colony (1628-92), which then ran north into southern Maine and included the seaside town of Kennebunk (“So Close, Yet Worlds Away”), was a hanging offense. Times have changed however.  And so on Friday a state judge in Portland accepted a plea deal from alleged Zumba dance madam Alexis Wright [...]

‘Tis Pity She’s a Whore

Ah, once there was a time when this flower of entitled Bush-era youth was fleecing the taxpayers at $300 million a pop. Now he’s selling his ass for $399.99.  Fitting, no pun intended: (h/t naplesnews.com) A Miami-Dade County man once accused of selling old ammunition to the U.S. government was arrested Thursday in Immokalee on [...]

The Oldest Profession

This tart briefly removed Gen. Petraeus’ penis from her mouth to do this interview, and it certainly shows. (h/t to my man Glenn Greenwald, formerly of Salon but now at the Guardian, for spotting this little treasure):

The Stale, Pale, Males

  Mike Papantonio, who’s been subbing a lot for Thom Hartmann and Ed Schultz lately on their radio shows, calls today’s Republicans (among other things), “the stale, pale, males.”  This admittedly juvenile moniker, unfortunately, gets more accurate each day.  If anything, it’s a bit of an understatement.  Yesterday we were treated to yet another Republican [...]

Cardboard Cutouts

  Ever since Reagan, Republicans have chosen Presidential candidates the same way an ad agency might cast a beer commercial.  Literally.  Remember all the talk about who voters would want to “have a beer with” when attempting to sell a slow-witted, overprivileged ne’er-do-well who didn’t even drink, back in 2000?  They never bother to find [...]

Down Below

Well, work and my hooker business on the side have been more than usually taxing here lately, and since I have to write something worthwhile at FDL tomorrow, it seemed highly unlikely that I would do much typing, much less the pesky thinking that goes with it, before then. To make up for my lassitude, [...]

One Boy?

Now, I ordinarily do my level best to ignore Sarah Palin so long after her sell date, but sometimes Caribou Barbie still manages to say something so eye-poppingly dense, and more importantly, funny, that I simply let her inimitable charms get the best of me.  Fortunately or not, today turned out to be one of [...]

Party Like It’s 1984

One thing you can say about the “conservative” majority on the Supreme Court: their definition of “freedom” is decidedly not the one you’d find in Webster’s.  Last week, “freedom” meant the God-given right to die in the gutter of preventable illness; this week it means the “freedom” to have cops look under your balls, literally, [...]

Digging Deeper

I was all set to write a mocking post about Mitt Romney’s new house with the car elevator, and I’ll get to that in a minute, but then along comes this: (CNN) – Russian President Dmitry Medvedev tweaked Mitt Romney for his characterization of Russia as the “No. 1 geopolitical foe” of the United States, [...]

Think of the Children

I think I just figured out why Rick Santorum is so obsessed with nudity in other, more attractive people; whenever he tries it, he invariably looks like chopped liver.  Actually, chopped liver is way too kind; he more closely resembles a half-melted pate’ sculpture of Jabba the Hut.   Given his undoubtedly teeny and uncooperative [...]
