Good news, everyone! The Vice President says that the millions of people drawing unemployment checks since the Stimulus Bill passed is proof positive that the administration’s plans are working. I guess by that measure we should be commissioning new versions of “Happy Days Are Here Again” because, according to the chart Duane Lester found, we’re […]

So, The Lizard Guy is a Good Guy or What?

What happens when you take The Dark Crystal, Star Wars, The Phantom Zone from Superman II, the post-apocalyptic world from Thundarr the Barbarian, and Crow T Robot’s older bartender brother, put them all in a blender, then spill them out over an 80′s dance pop number? You get this. Answers to questions I know you […]

Someone Get Out the Wetnaps, Van Jones Has Resigned

Someone Get Out the Wetnaps, Van Jones Has Resigned

| September 6, 2009 | 8 Replies

I’m guessing by now you already know that Van Jones, President Obama’s “Green Jobs Czar” tendered his resignation in the middle of the night last night and slunk back to the fevered swamps from whence he slithered. His resignation letter is a masterpiece of petulance and dishonesty, anchored by this sentence: On the eve of […]

So far, in the past ten months, we’ve bailed out several large financial companies, a few thousand banks, two of the three big automakers, dozens of state governments (thanks to Stimulus Bill make work programs), and nearly every progressive pet project under the sun. So, what’s left to bail out? Well, how about all those […]

In the Game of Photo, Video, Text…

Video beats photo, every time. Especially when the video features a smarky-smart, attractive woman. Jillian Bandes is all of those things and her video of the Steny Hoyer townhall is fun to watch. From the looks of the footage, she did most of her outdoor filming before I got there. Related: There are two men […]

Maybe We’d Believe Him if He’d Uncross His Fingers When He Denies Being a Truther

Maybe We’d Believe Him if He’d Uncross His Fingers When He Denies Being a Truther

So Van Jones, President Obama’s chosen “Green Czar” has come out with a non-apology apology (you know, one of those “Sorry I ticked you off” things) and, more importantly has denied agreeing with any part of a 9/11 Truther petition on which his name appeared. That might — might — be believable if he hadn’t […]

The Honduran People Will Pay for Our Shameful Behavior

The Honduran People Will Pay for Our Shameful Behavior

| September 3, 2009 | 8 Replies

I am truly ashamed of the way my government is treating the people of Honduras. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton terminated a large part of U.S. assistance to Honduras Thursday over the ouster of President Manuel Zelaya and said that Washington would not recognize the results of elections scheduled for November. The State Department […]

According to Ted Kennedy’s biography (not titled “Swimming to Hyannisport”), Ronald Reagan just wasn’t all that bright. The senator said it had been difficult to get Reagan to focus on policy matters. He described a meeting with him that he and other senators had sought to press for shoe and textile import limits. The senators […]

It’s not enough that the President’s hand-picked “Green Czar” Van Jones is a self-described recent convert to communism nor that he believes opposing the President makes you an a**hole. Oh, no. If he were only those things he’d be strikingly normal for an Obama administration czar. But Van Jones is no normal opposition-hating Commie. Van […]

Remember when the President accused doctors of performing bazillions of unnecessary tonsillectomies just to get a few extra bucks? Well, Britain’s not having any of that! The tonsils of the youth of England may find a repreieve from the scalpel, mostly because the country’s government-run health care system — you know, the one like the […]
