If you built a ranking system for risible loudmouths, you’d have to rank Rep. Maxine Waters (D – Greed) somewhere in the top five, if not at the very top of the list. Whenever she speaks, the intelligence of the entire planet drops a solid ten points. She is to stupidity what the sun is […]

It’s Sunday and you know what that means. Yep, the Democrats ran to their bestest buddies in the MSM to preach the Gospel of Blame. The S&P downgrade wasn’t their fault, no way, no how. They are blameless, helpless victims, trod underfoot by a vicious minority called the Tea Parties. Such left-wing luminaries as David […]

I’m no professional poker player, but I’m pretty sure that if I saw someone throw a hissy fit that ends in “Don’t call my bluff” at a table, I’d know two things: He’s bluffing. He’s about to get his bluff called by everyone at the table. That’s where we sit right now with the debt […]

The story around Operation Fast and Furious has reached the stage where large chunks of it no longer fit neatly into a straight-line narrative. Let me see if I can bring you up to speed. First, the “simple” story. Arizona police arrested five people in April outside of Phoenix with at least 500 grams of […]

Debbie Wasserman-Schultz Doesn't Own This Economy, and We Shouldn't Let Her Claim It.

Conservatives have made a lot of hay this past week over DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman-Schultz’s contention that Democrats now “own the economy” and for good reason.

So Anthony Weiner took the long walk to the microphone today and resigned his position as member of the House of Representatives. If you haven’t been following the story, well, God bless you. You’ve missed a real mess — a tale of arrogance, sex, a porn actress, some young girls, lies, politics, more lies, and […]

In my last post, I committed an act of wanton and premeditated mathematics upon Debbie Wasserman-Schultz’ proud contention that Democrats have, with trillions of dollars of our money, created 2.1 million jobs in 2 1/2 years. Then I got to thinking a bit more about those numbers. Sure, it’s sheer lunacy to spend more than […]

I’m sure Debbie Wasserman-Schultz, Chair of the Democratic National Committee, thinks she’s super-clever, but I don’t think the “Be thankful we got that foul Bush economy turned around” strategy is going to be a big winner in 2012. What’s that? You think I’m wildly exaggerating? You don’t believe that she of the ego large enough […]
