And the Placating Continues

Remember high school?  Now that you are older, (I am assuming there are no high schoolers enjoying political satire websites, although I may be mistaken) can you recognize how many terrible decisions you made back then, trying to fit in?  I am sure one or two of you smoked to try and look cool or […]

Mel Succumbs to Mitt Romnarcolepsy

President Obama: The Buffett Rule Rundown

Lately, there has been much discussion regarding what is now known as the Buffett Rule (no not buffet, Buffett this has nothing to do with food…it is named after billionaire Warren Buffett).

Mitt Romney: GOP Political Race…And The Winner Is?

I Love You, Don Cheadle… Cheadle On!

But more importantly, Don Cheadle is a man of integrity, class, and patience considering he spent several hours tweeting with some Michelle Malkin Twitchers regarding the edited NBC Zimmerman 911 tape. It has since digressed into left vs. […]

Tennessee’s Life Defense Act of 2012 Eliminates Itself

Remember this little Amendment? “No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the […]

Things Heating Up in Illinois

No, not that kind of “heat”, not the kind that would imply anything even remotely interesting or exciting is happening in the Illinois primary. Romney will win and everyone on TV will argue about whether the win was by a large enough margin to put Santorum away. I’ll answer that now. No. No it isn’t. […]

The GOP Budget: For Confident Americans?
