It’s also time to wonder why the Washington Nationals’ GM is tooling around spring training on a Segway, looking like the world’s biggest baseball dork (and […]

If you’re CNN, it just wouldn’t do to give the straight dope about the thousands upon thousands of people Fidel Castro has killed in his lifetime or the hundreds of people he’s throw in prison for nothing more than speaking their minds.

This sentence, from Michelle Obama, strikes me as a sad, sorry thing to say. For the first time in my adult lifetime, I am really proud of my country… What made her proud is her husband’s campaign. That’s the first thing she’s seen that makes her proud of her country. I’m sure that she’s about […]

I think that Aquaman is going to be sorely disappointed when he hears about this. Team Clinton has renamed superdelegates, telling reporters this morning they should really be called “automatic” delegates. ” ‘Super’ has some sort of sense that they are going to descend on us from Mars,” said Clinton supporter Harold Ickes, a DNC […]
