Yes, Virginia. Stupid People Vote.

I saw a post on Facebook today that was simply breathtaking in its stupidity. Apparently it’s very popular with the wingnut crowd, because it’s been making the rounds since at least July of 2008. What surprised me was that the person who posted it was not a stupid person by any stretch of the imagination. […]

Mitt Romney - I'm Speaking

Disrespecting An American President

When President Barack Obama took the stage at The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, the first thing that struck me was the fact that Mr. Stewart would not be seated before the President. He just wouldn’t sit down until President Obama had seated himself. It was a genuine gesture. Not one of fealty to a […]

Obama’s Dijon Mustard Scandal

When I first came across President Obama’s thorny Dijon mustard “scandal”, I thought it was a joke. I figured it had to be one of those fake articles from The Onion, or at least a premise for a Terry Pratchett novel. But no, my friends. There is a calamity befalling us. Americans are faced with […]

Fox Refuses To Air Obama Press Conference

Is anyone really surprised that the Fox network has stated that it will not air President Obama’s press conference on Wednesday 29th, but will air an episode of Lie To Me instead? There’s an irony-tinged joke in there somewhere, but I’m too polite to go for it. Write your own jokes. Fox makes it easy. […]
