After the Fall

After watching that blubbering drunkard, soon-to-be Speaker Boehner, confidently if unsteadily declare that the Republicans had received a sweeping mandate, I had to ask, “for what?”  Across the country, all Republican candidates nattered on about the Constitution, smaller government, lower taxes, bigger military, less social services, etc., arguments they have long since won, even among [...]

The Silly Season Ends

Given that I started this blog in January 2009, I never thought much about how I would handle elections; I hate projections unless they’re mine and they’re right, or they’re someone icky and they’re wrong.  Understandable, if not particularly lofty, and a good way to keep the tarnish off the CHNN brand.  Nevertheless, Retzilian successfully [...]

Thus Spake The Pantload

Jonah Goldberg, author of “Liberal Fascism,” has some “helpful” advice to offer his favorite political punching bags, who all are admittedly much smarter and more qualified than he is, to do things the way he imagines people like that do things, since he clearly doesn’t know any better.  A classic piece of duplicitous, lazy concern-trolling, [...]

Jowling At The Moon

There are many non-Republicans in congress who are, by any measure, slimy, loathsome, corrupt, and duplicitous, but they need only be mentioned in the same sentence as Joe Lieberman and they suddenly look like honorable statesmen of the first order.  Who can forget, back in 1998, when ol’ Holy Joe emerged from well-deserved obscurity to [...]

Another Temper Tantrum

Probably the dumbest act in American political history was Al Gore’s choosing Holy Joe Lieberman as his running mate in 2000.  If I were Tipper, I would still be withholding sex for that one.  Why, pray tell, would anyone choose a corrupt, midget slimeball for a running mate whose sole qualification was his prim, Defense [...]

it must be our freedoms

Emboldened by how well the fear-mongering campaign against closing Guantanamo has been succeeding amongst dumber Americans like Glenn Beck and Harry Reid, the Pentagon went ahead and does what it does best: release a completely fabricated report to “bolster” it.  And it’s a thing to behold.  With a military budget like ours, can’t we afford [...]
