Those Who Would Nazi

Back in 2004, a blog commenter at Daily Kos made a video that compared Bush to Hitler, and there was a immediate run on smelling salts that lasted for weeks.  At the time I was working for a couple who were regular Fox News watchers, and they were naturally horrified.  “Really?” I responded.  “Aggressive wars, [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

Chris Wallace, Hippie

I’m sure that once Rupert Murdoch and Roger Ailes see this video, they’re both going to have stool in their blood.  You see, right-wing automatons like this numbskull from Alaska only go on Fox to be worshipped, never questioned, and when a normally housebroken Republican poodle like Chris Wallace accidentally commits a wee bit of [...]

What’s That You’re Waving?

Newt Gingrich took to the airwaves today to announce what all of the beltway elite have been talking about with dreary repetitiveness for months….  2010 is going to be a “wave” election that sweeps Republicans back into power, whereupon the regrettable accident of Democratic government will be well and truly set aside for good. Michele [...]

Positive Ape Factor

About 200 years ago, give or take a zero, I managed the sales division of a theatrical lighting company.  Most of us, including myself, had earned our chops climbing around in flylofts, swinging from light to light on the old, wooden, and impossibly high ladders large auditoriums use, and feats of skill and daring were [...]

Freaky Friday

I was initially too lazy to post today, but then I started trolling the intertubes, and danged if I just couldn’t help myself.  The stupid is really burning today. For example:  Rand Paul Now lil’ Rand is considerably more attractive than his Papa, which couldn’t hurt (except for that unfortunate white-fro on the top of [...]
