John McCain, it’s time for your Geritol and your nap

June 21, 2011


Does anyone really need any more evidence that John McCain is certifiably senile? McCain says the rampant wildfires in all over Arizona that have already devastated more than a million acres and are still burning were started by illegal aliens crossing into the United States in northern Arizona. He’s got absolutely no evidence, mind you, […]

Gingrich: A fork-tongued clown of a higher caliber

May 13, 2011


This is almost too easy.  You almost have to admire Newt Gingrich for his brazen, almost shameless lack of concern over what comes out the mouth on either side of his face. I mean, seriously, what kind of idiot announces that he’s running for president during the most devastating economy in almost a century – […]

Remember a couple of weeks ago when Speaker-of-the-House-to-be John Boehner made that noble announcement that – in order to help reduce spending and “help the American people” – he was going to reduce his entire staff’s payroll by five percent?  What a guy, huh? Well, while the gesture seems magnanimous on the surface, it becomes […]

Far be it from me to say “I told you so”

December 7, 2010


Here’s a little tidbit that I’m pretty sure you won’t find in any Fox News broadcast. Remember earlier this summer and fall when all you hard from the various TEA Party candidates – of all degrees of intelligence and credibility – was that they were, collectively and individually, all about cutting government spending, and that […]
