Witchy Woman gets a book deal…
If we’re over Christine O’Donnell now – and oh yes, I think we are -- what makes St. Martin’s Press think we’re going to be lined up to buy her book in August 2011?
The press release states it will offer her take on the campaign and her “frustrations” with the political process – presumably with a forward by Sharon Angle, Meg Whitman and Carly Fiorini.
When did we become a nation obsessed with losers?
“Re-taste your youth at 40 proof…”
Now these folks -- along with the couple that invented last week’s caffeinated popcorn -- are the kind that I’d enjoy reading a book about.
Speaking of reading…
A judge has dismissed a petition for a ban on WikiLeaks, saying that nothing is greater than the truth and citizens have a right to be informed on the actions of their government. Let’s hear it for our strong First Amendment. Wait – you say this didn’t occur in the U.S.?
Yep. This strike for liberty came from a judge in Pakistan, of all places, while officials here in the U.S. of Hypocrisy continue to persecute the messenger and try to silence the truth because God forbid our citizenry should actually know the kind of atrocious shit our government is up to around the world in the name of “freedom.”
Am I the only one who finds it ironic that there are now more countries hunting WikiLeaks’ founder, Julian Assange, than ever gave a crap about looking for Osama Bin Ladin?
Here’s my take on the “embarrassment” diplomats complain these leaked cables have caused. If you would just behave ethically in the first place, you wouldn’t have anything to be embarrassed about. Hopefully, that will be the lesson our government takes away from this situation.
I could use a whole lot of Adult Chocolate Milk after this…
On Wednesday, House Democrats voted to permanently extend tax cuts for the middle class – that would be you and me.
Then on Saturday Senate Republicans killed it – actually voting against tax relief for the middle class -- because it didn’t include their much-sought-after tax cuts for the rich – and remember that 44% of Congress are millionaires. These are the same fine folks arguing that we can’t afford to help out needy, jobless families because we don’t want to add to the deficit, but apparently adding $700 billion to the deficit over the next 10 years to pay for a tax cut for the richest 1% among us – all cool.
So I’m thinking of retiring the Steaming Pile of Shit Award. There just don't seem to be enough nominees that can compete with the GOP.
And now, for no other reason than we could all use a good laugh, I present…
The Pattycake Pussies…
Imagine one named Obama and the other Mitch McConnell just for the hell of it.
May your day be merry and bright…
