Easter, the Day When We Celebrate…the Something…Blargle…of Jesus

Easter, the Day When We Celebrate…the Something…Blargle…of Jesus

This is the final paragraph and correction end-note of an article published about Pope Francis by the New York Times. I am not making it up. Easter is the celebration of Jesus’s resurrection from the dead, three days after he was crucified, the premise for the Christian belief in an everlasting life. In urging peace, […]

Before I hit the meat of my post, let me lay a couple things out there. First, I think we’d be incredibly foolish to tinker with the definition of marriage any more than we have. A few decades of well-intentioned meddling ought to have taught us we absolutely suck at predicting unintended consequences. If we […]

If you’re a conservative, and haven’t been living in a dank cave far from a WiFi signal, you know that the Conservative Political Action Conference, also known as CPAC, is the biggest and baddest gathering of political conservatives in the country. CPAC 2011 set a record with over 11,000 attendees and, though I’ve not been […]

Hey Republican Drama Queens, Put a Sock in It

Here I am on a chilly but pretty Saturday morning, catching up on the morning news and minding my own business, when some state Republican official, of whom I’ve never heard, said something unbelievably stupid about rape. Another day, another Republican making an ill-advised comment about rape. Celeste Greig, the head of the largest GOP […]

I swear there are days when I don’t understand Republicans, usually days that end in “y”. Yesterday, the Senate confirmed Jack Lew as Secretary of the Treasury. Lew is, from my view in the cheap seats, not at all suitable for the office. As President Obama’s director of the Office of Budget and Management and […]

Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer kicked up a ruckus when she ordered her employees to come into the office every day instead of working one or more days from home or a remote office.

Happy Thanksgiving! The last two shows were pretty heavy, so we were due for something more light and enjoyable in Episode 174. Honestly, I don’t know how in the world anyone brings the weighty politics on a Thanksgiving show. Fie on anyone who does, I say. I have a lot for which to be thankful, […]

The post-election malaise set in during Episode 173, but not in the way you might expect. It didn’t last long, though, so if you want to skip over that bit, you won’t miss much of the show. On the other hand, you may want to hang in there to catch the beginning of a theme […]
