Don’t Tease Me–Appease Me!
On Thursday, President Bush made some comments about our foreign policy in a foreign nation. You’d think a folksy kinda guy like Bush would know that family don’t talk about family outside’a family. Anyway, the media is all in a tither because of something the president said. Here’s an excerpt: Some seem to believe that […]
I Hope the Voters Don’t Let Us Down
I’ve been trying to think of something intelligent or insightful to say about today’s primaries in NC and IN, but I got nothin’. I’m so sick of this stupid thing that I can’t even muster the energy to stump for Obama or snipe at Hillary. I was even going to make a joke about playing […]
We Chase Misprinted Lies / We Face The Path Of Time
It’s ten past eleven at night. I’m sitting in my recliner with the computer in my lap watching “Good Eats” (the Spinach Salad episode).

An “aide” inside his campaign claims that Edwards will not immediately back either Obama or Hillary. Another says that whatever he does he will not be supporting Hillary. Those […]

God Does Not Play Dice With The Universe; He Plays An Ineffable Game Of His Own Devising
I want to preface this post with a few things. Unlike many non-neocons, I do not find Ann Coulter offensive or revolting. I find her highly amusing, and if she had her own talk show, I’d tune in regularly just to watch her antics. I also find it highly entertaining that she reduces many liberals […]
Why Can’t We Just Whip These Motherfuckers With A Garden Hose?
I hope this is the kind of democracy we’re bringing to Iraq. No sense in bullshitting them about what they’ll eventually devolve into if they let freedom march on through their country.
