What Bill Maher Said

By Miryam Ehrlich Williamson Photo: Fox News I may have my head handed to me for this one, but this quote from Bill Maher’s June 19 monologue, “New Rules,” on HBO is something I wish I’d written. [... E]very time Obama tries to take on a progressive cause, there’s a major political party standing in [...]

Baracknophobia

J. Marcus When a campaign takes a kitchen sink approach, there needs to be some time spent afterwards to de-rile the masses.

Outrageous Outrage

J. Marcus I have never before been as shocked and awed as when I heard Barack Obama use the phrase “Lipstick on a pig”. Despite the context of the quote I have chosen to believe that Obama was talking exclusively about Sarah Palin’s physique, and there’s no transcript, audio file, video, or smoke signal you [...]

Don’t bother looking for it in stores, McCainopoly isn’t for sale. This game can only be passed down to you from [...]

There’s No Place Like Home

By Tracy Russo In John McCain’s case – there are at least 7 places that are like home.

A Snow Job Trumps A Flood

Happy birthday, little guy!You may have remembered from the picture that it’s also the day that Katrina hit New Orleans and devastated one of the largest cities in the United States. Normally, John would’ve been mad [...]
