Amnesty Amnesia is a prerequisite to entry into the New Cult of Reagan

Hat tip to Tedski for posting GOP legislative rankings from the Pachyderm Coalition.    They evaluated lawmakers using a formula that calculated each one’s relative adherence to the canons of St. Ronald of Reagan via a weighting system:  Summary of criteria used to weight bills: 1) Supports US Constitution 2) Supports Republican Party Platform 3) Supports individual / private […]

I have a better idea for those AIG execs.

Senator Charles Grassley (R-Horse’s Ass) got himself in some hot water for his suggestion that AIG bonus-grubbers “resign” or “go commit suicide” Japanese-style.   Aside from evoking suicide, way to diss the Land of the Rising Sun!  Stereotype much, Chuck?   Other members of Congress, though not as bloodthirsty as Grassley, are weighing the idea of taxing the bonuses at confiscatory rates.   This […]

But […]

As usual, Joe Arpaio demonstrates that no one gets between him and the camera.

There really oughtta be a picture of him aside the word ‘narcissist’ in every dictionary.   MSNBC did a report on Charles Barkley’s 3 day stint in Tent City, and sure enough, in the footage of the tracksuit clad former basketball star lumbering about the yard of the facility, there did appear the combover’d pate of Maricopa County’s attention-hungry strutting […]
