Eating Worms

Nobody likes me; everybody hates me. I think I’ll go out and eat some worms. That little childhood ditty rings in my ears as I read about how Republicans are fighting the apocalyptic battle they have set up this fall’s elections to be; through whining, cheating, and dirty tricks, and doing other disgusting things that [...]

None of Your Business

It was a telling moment when Mitt Romney said that niggling little things like the massive income inequality that’s turned out so phenomenally well, for him anyway, ought only be discussed in “Quiet rooms,” where, presumably, the servants couldn’t hear.   It seems that after the recent unpleasantness, the rich are hurriedly drawing the portieres [...]

Whine and Roses

When all else fails…

Not since he was angling for deferment number five has Dick Cheney’s daughter Liz turned out to be so handy, and like any canny, legally compromised parent would, he has sent her forth, this time in ambulatory form, to get Papa out of some trouble, once again.  Since she can talk now, she was fully [...]
