I Now Pronounce You Wusband and Hife


What does it mean to be a husband? Newlywed Carrie Sloan isn’t exactly sure, but it’s got something to do with leaving dirty socks on the floor, bat-out-of-hell driving habits, and a man-sized butt print on a La-Z-Boy recliner.
Not that she buys into gender stereotypes or anything.
And what about being a wife?  Sloan, the [...]

Nope, Still Not Seeing Much of a Change From Bush to Obama


David Forsmark replied to my post about the George W. Obama Administration here, titled “Yes, Ryan, There IS a Difference Between the 2 Parties on National Security.” Just a little clarification: I was comparing the Obama and Bush Administrations, not necessarily both parties, and I didn’t say there was no difference at all, just nothing [...]

Donny Deutsch to Hispanics: Get Back on the Liberal Plantation


Donny Deutsch utters an ethnic slur to stigmatize conservative Hispanics and no one in the Big Media seems to care or notice.

So Now We’re Dictators, Too?


The Daily Beast just can’t get enough of the “extremist!” meme.  Today they have not one, but two articles proclaiming that this week’s suicide/plane attack on a Texas office building is a sign of growing far-right mania.  Reading Joe Stack’s own manifesto and Michelle Horstman’s reaction to it should provide an antidote for that smear, [...]

JD Hayworth: McCain’s Worst Nightmare?


The replacement of “Maverick” Republican John McCain with an authentic conservative is a longtime fantasy held by many of us on the Right.  But could it actually happen?  Former Congressman and Arizona talk radio host JD Hayworth thinks so, and while the polls show he’s got an uphill battle, an upset isn’t impossible.  The Daily [...]

Maher Not Dismayed Over Bayh Bow-out. Moderates Are “Corporatists,” Anyway


Following Evan Bayh’s (D-IN) abrupt retirement, comedian Bill Maher appeared on Anderson Cooper 360° to discuss Congressional inertia.  His first response to the moderate Democrat’s departure?
He wasn’t working. He’s the problem with Congress.
Maher immediately admonished Cooper for referring to Bayh as a “centrist” when, in fact, there’s a perfectly good ad hominem to hurl. “He’s [...]

OMG: Beck Calls Meghan McCain a “Useful Idiot”


Like, whatever.
It’s hard to think of the utterly unaccomplished blogger Meghan McCain, who blathers on about things she knows little about in her Valley Girl voice, as an intelligent, well informed person. Glenn Beck went even further on his TV show Friday, calling the self-described progressive Republican a “useful idiot.”
Beck spent time mocking McCain, daughter of fair weather conservative [...]

Bada Bing, NJ Governor Christie: Fiscally Responsible AND a Backbone!


Lori Ziganto’s latest article at Right Wing News
I was born and raised in New Jersey; moved down to South Carolina 5 years ago. Prior to that, I lived in New Jersey my entire life. I left because it became impossible to make ends meet there, primarily due to [...]

Will Michelle Obama’s “Let’s Move” Campaign Work?


I admit it sounds good. Who doesn’t want to put an end to childhood obesity? We all have a stake in this fight. Obesity rates tripled in the past 30 years, and as a result American children may face a shorter expected lifespan than their parents. So what is the answer?
Michelle Obama’s answer includes a [...]
