Tea Party

Sarah Palin should be very grateful to Michelle Bachman. In fact, if I were Palin, I’d be sending the Republican presidential hopeful bouquets of roses. Because if anyone can take the heat off Palin, it has to be this numbskull. Earlier this week, during an appearance on the Today Show, Bachman claimed that the Gardasil […]

The gun smoke had hardly begun to fade away from the terrible massacre in Tucson, Arizona before politicians, reporters, and television talking heads were pointing fingers and looking for somebody to blame. Police say that they believe that Jared Loughner acted alone in the shooting that killed six people and wounded fourteen more, including Democratic […]

Last week the NAACP created a media firestorm when it accused some supporters of the Tea Party of “explicit racist behavior” and accused the Tea Party of a “drive to push our country back to the pre-civil rights era.” While I am not a member of the Tea Party, and while some of its most […]

Disjointed thoughts on the oil spill. Every time BP representatives open their mounts about the oil spill, they do as much polluting with bulls$@& as their oil is polluting the waters of the Gulf of Mexico. It seems that BP pretty much equals BS. I couldn’t believe it, but my wife sat right beside me […]
