MS-NBC’s resident Bush Hater, Keith Olbermann, recently described Iraq as the “most disastrous geopolitical tactic since Austro-Hungary attacked Serbia in 1914 and destroyed itself in the process.” The only problem with Olbermann tossing out a Dennis Miller-like reference is that he has to then back it up with Dennis Miller-like intelligence. God bless him, he [...]
One of the funniest things I’ve ever heard on radio is the now-famous blooper reel where Orson Welles berates his producer, the script, the writers, and the world in general while recording a commercial for peas. Once upon a time, it was revived in Animaniacs form, with Pinky and The Brain taking the places of [...]
Shamus Young is recovering from gall bladder surgery/scratch pad testing dummy practice. Go on over and wish him a speedy recovery and, while you’re there, read a few of his very funny “DM of the Rings” comics. We’re nearing the end of the trilogy campaign and that’ll be the end of a lot of funny. [...]

Isn’t it customary that you accomplish a few great things before you write your memoirs? Though I do admit, being one of the two people at the helm as Congress sinks to an approval level never before seen in American history counts as at least a major accomplishment. Somehow I don’t think that For My [...]
If your favorite leftist seems unusually jump right about now, there’s a good reason for it. As Fezzik would have put it, all their worst nightmares are about to come true. CAMP DAVID, Md. — President Bush transferred the powers of the presidency to Vice President Dick Cheney on Saturday just before being sedated for [...]
I do not understand this even a little bit. Republicans in Congress wanted to pass an amendment that would let you report suspicious activity to the authorities without having to worry about getting sued. Normally you wouldn’t have to worry about it, except that a bunch of Imams decided to sue the passengers of a [...]
