Mitt Romney is a disciplined and prolific liar, but today in Cincinnati he slipped up and uttered a truth that politicians always vehemently deny. As Romney was trashing President Obama and the teacher's union he tacitly revealed that he is beholden to the wishes of his largest donors.
days of disingenuously mocking President Obama for his "you didn't
build that" remark, Mitt Romney told a group of billionaires that
the people of Israel didn't build it either.
From Raw Story:
Specifically Romney said, “And as I come here and I look out over this city and consider… Read full post »
Human weather vane Mitt Romney had a well-planned and wildly successful reverse "Sister Souljah" moment today at the NAACP Convention in Houston. His promise to repeal "Obamacare" drew the desired amount of ire from the mostly African American crowd but Romney loved the hostile reaction because… Read full post »
Mitt Romney actually has a compelling personal story that on the surface seems tailor-made for the standoffish, dickish presidential candidate, especially considering that his resume is very thin when it comes to warm, fuzzy, endearing, non-dickish stories.
Unfortunately for Romney this eve… Read full post »
Quick question (no Googling): What comes after "trillion?"
Okay, I had to use Google to get the answer. I thought it would be “gazillion," or perhaps "bazillion," or maybe even "shit-ton." I was wrong.
The answer: Quadrillion.
Yes, quadrillion is an actual number.&n… Read full post »
Glenn Beck's website, "The Blaze," featured an article titled "Can You Pick Out the Flag Gaffe on Obama's New 'Julia Site?' We Did."
The article points out that the proper way to display the American Flag when it flanks a podium is for it to be on the… Read full post »
Mitt Romney is loath to discuss his Mormon faith for one very simple reason: He knows that the more people learn about his secretive and mysterious religion, the less inclined they’ll be to entrust him with the security, safety, and well-being of America and Americans.

Dick Clark, the iconic host of American Bandstand died today at age 82. As people rightfully applaud him for his huge contribution to American pop culture, it should also be noted that Dick Clark was a first-class prick to do business with. How do I know this? He stiffed me for… Read full post »
Today was a banner day for Mitt Romney's presidential hopes as he won the highly coveted endorsement of mediocre rocker Ted Nugent. Romney jumped on the Nugent bandwagon after he was bitterly disappointed when devoted Libertarian Charles Manson bailed on him and went with Ron Paul.
After countless examples of being out-hardballed by the GOP, the Democrats haven't learned a thing.
What's become known mostly as "the Blunt Amendment," a bill that would allow employers to opt out of any medical procedure that they personally object to on moral or religious grounds, went down to def… Read full post »
Up until very recently Gene Sykes, one of Goldman Sachs' top mergers and acquisitions bankers, was living the good life. Imagine the American Dream buzzed on a cocktail of Almus Beluga cavair, 1865 Chateau Lafite and Primobolan and you have Gene Sykes' life.

To say that Mitt Romney is a flip-flopper is a little like saying that Charlize Theron is a reasonably attractive woman.
Most of Romney's "flipiousity" has been focused on health care, abortion rights, tax increases and whether or not he had a man-crush on Ronald Reagan. Very little atte… Read full post »
Newt Gingrich is under a barrage of attacks from conservative leaders who crap their pants at the thought of the narcissistic former Speaker becoming the 45th President of the United States.

Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) refused to submit to a TSA full-body pat-down after setting off an alarm at Nashville Airport security. Senator Paul's unwillingness to be touched "down there" by another man can only mean one of two things.
1) The diminutive Rand Paul has a small d… Read full post »
In a 1994 Senate debate with Ted Kennedy, Mitt Romney strongly touted his credentials as a man dedicated to helping women and minorities shatter the glass ceiling. But, as is often the case with Mr. Romney, the rhetoric doesn't match the results.
First he gives thanks that he wasn't born in Kenya and then, with more than a hint of desperation in his voice,… Read full post »
If Callista Gingrich ever has health problems that are more serious than the occasional dose of the clap that she gets from her philandering husband Newt, she’d better visit both a doctor and a divorce lawyer.

Newt Gingrich does not want to be the 45th President of the United States.
He wants to raise his profile, sell more books, add to his already substantial client base, and make piles of money. But he does not want to be the leader of the free world. Why? Because he's… Read full post »
Are all people that smoke cigarettes dumb? No. Are all non-smokers smart? No. But is smoking a dumb habit? Yes. Unless you think that a habit that costs $2,500 a year and shortens your life by ten to fifteen years is a good thing, I think we can all agree that… Read full post »

When I listen to the parade of right wing pundits and politicians refer, in lockstep, to President Obama's proposed tax increase as "class warfare," I'm left with one thought: Go fuck yourself.
