Delusions of Gipperhood

When I finally stopped laughing, spraying booze all over, and dumbfoundedly slapping my forehead over Wisconsin Governor (!) Scott Walker’s fawning and delusional 20-minute kiss-up to an anonymous caller unconvincingly posing as uber-oligarch David Koch captured on tape, I got to thinking.  What, in heaven’s name, could make a person so gloriously, blindly lacking in [...]

Is Rand Paul Single?

I never was able to work up the sort of affection for Rand Paul that I felt for his irascible but endearing dad, who bravely and repeatedly bucked his lockstep authoritarian party during the Bush years, but today I might have changed my mind.  It seems that the curly-headed Medicare freeloader lately of Kentucky has [...]

I Married A Nixon

UPDATED WITH CORRECTION BELOW: In today’s LA Times, David Eisenhower typed up a little something that shows pretty starkly that if one wants to maintain one’s grasp on reality over time, then marrying into the Nixon family might be a mistake.  The piece (of what, I’ll let the reader decide), is a rather boring, phoned-in [...]

Don’t Let The Door Hit You, Holy Joe

To no one’s surprise, Holy Joe Lieberman’s “Joementum”  has turned out, once and for all, to be a wet firecracker; the universally despised “Independent” has, somewhat belatedly, decided to pull the curtain on his embarrassing “career,” by, naturally, leaking the news of his retirement while denying it.  Of course, few of his constituents will miss [...]

It’s My Party, And I’ll Cry If I Want To

Predictably, incoming Speaker of the House (!) John Boehner cried when handed the gavel by Nancy Pelosi, and as promised, he and his party are about to give America plenty to cry about.  Of course, several of the lies they told to get the House majority have already been exploded, most significantly the $100 billion [...]

Dick Cheney Channels Daisy Buchanan

One of the more despicable things about the Bush Administration, the most disastrous in modern history, is that they’re all still so proud of themselves, against all evidence.  While the two losing wars they’ve left behind continue to drag us into bankruptcy, impotence, and disrepute, count on ol’ Dick Cheney or one of his hell-spawn [...]

Hit the Road, Jack

As we approach another Thanksgiving here at CHNN, I was feeling pretty cheated on my list of things to be thankful for.  Both wars still rage, with more offered up every few months, Obama has continued to be a horrible disappointment on civil liberties, the economy, and on and on, and the Republican party has [...]

Dixie Chicks Smarter Than the Liberal Media, Again

It seems like such a long time ago, when Natalie Maines of the Dixie Chicks, performing in England, told an audience that she was “embarrassed that the President of the United States is from Texas.”  As an Oregonian I personally was less embarrassed, but I’d been routinely apologizing to foreign friends about Bush for years; [...]

Divided We Stand

The following towering pile of horseshit was written by Fox News Democrats Patrick Caddell and Douglas Schoen, and appeared in the WaPoo, under the Fair and Balanced headline, “Our Divisive President, Redux.” (h/t Media Matters.): President Obama’s post-partisan America has disappeared, replaced by the politics of polarization, resentment and division. Genius observation….  any clue as [...]

Daddy Warbuck’s Little Girl

I used to think time was on my side with ol’ Dick Cheney; that that ticker of his couldn’t possibly continue to propel his fetid corpus onto Meet the Press and whatnot, to croak dire threats of the danger of everyone not doing exactly whatever he said, for much longer.  That he was always later [...]
