What's for Dinner?

Friday, November 19, 2010

Did you hear? I fixed the budget crisis. I know, I know, I'm amazing. It was actually really easy. I cut foreign aid in half, cut salaries for our returning troops and raised the retirement age to 70. I can't imagine this will bother or offend anybody.

Olbermann Should Go

Monday, November 08, 2010

Keith Olbermann is a partisan Democrat? Well, my word! Get the couches out because people are fainting from surprise. Not bigger than the surprise that anyone would consider Olbermann a "reporter", of course, but that kind of shocking information is hard to top.

A reporter though he may not be, Keith Olbermann needs to go.

Are You Better Off Than You Were Two Years Ago?

Monday, November 01, 2010

Barack Obama loves blaming the state of our economy on George W. Bush. After all, he's only been in office for half his term. The funny thing about blaming Bush is that Obama has chosen to continue the failed policies of his supposed saboteur's administration, like propping up dying companies, issuing obscene bailouts using money we don't have, and launching entitlement programs we simply can't afford.

Sarah Palin: Is There Anything She Can't Do?

Friday, October 29, 2010

Writing in the Daily Caller yesterday, Dorian Davis blames Sarah Palin for Republicans likely not capturing the Senate on Tuesday. This is amazing for several reasons. For one thing, it hasn't happened yet: this might be the first time Sarah Palin is blamed for something that only may happen.

Health Care Politicking Coming Back to Bite Dems

Thursday, October 28, 2010

In a surprise to only the most die-hard Obama fans, the politicians who supported the disastrous healthcare bill boondoggle are the most likely to lose their jobs come Tuesday's election.

You're so stupid, vote for me

Monday, October 25, 2010

The GOP is currently favored to win 50 House seats. Why are Americans leaning Republican so heavily in this election? It couldn't be because their president rammed through an unpopular and costly health-care bill. It's not possible it's because the unemployment rate keeps rising despite the government pouring money we don't have into "saving or creating" jobs. Surely it's not because their president keeps insulting them and letting them know that if you don't support the Obama agenda, you're just not thinking clearly you gun-clinging rubes!

The Loneliness of the Good Candidate

Friday, October 22, 2010

In a year when so many "safe" seats seem to be in play, it figures that this is the state of the Republican party in New York: The guy who sends around bestiality cartoons and says gay people don't have a valid life? That guy everyone knows. The two men with credentials, strong positions on the issues, clean campaigns and just the one family each? They barely get mentioned.

Clowns to the Left of Me, Jokers to the Right

Tuesday, October 19, 2010

Twitter lit up last night with people all across the country tuning into the New York gubernatorial debate. We New Yorkers, of course, had to hide our faces in shame.

Take The Hint

Friday, October 15, 2010

Dick Morris likes to say that if you're a candidate running for office and you're pro-choice, but don't want to make abortion an issue in your election, just say you're pro-environment. People will make the connection on their own. In other words, there are issues in politics which are predictors of other issues.

For me, that issue was always guns. I'm a life-long New Yorker, so I have no hope of ever owning a gun. In fact, I’ve never even shot one, yet I consider gun rights to be in my top 5 issues. I'm pro-gun and a staunch defender of the Second Amendment, because I believe in the concept that more (legal) guns equals less crime.

The Trouble with Carl

Tuesday, October 12, 2010

How did Carl Paladino become the Republican candidate for Governor of New York? Guess #1 is that it's an anti-incumbent year and, as people had heard of Rick Lazio, he took on the incumbent stench. Guess #2? There is no guess #2 — just the lingering question and answer: could Republicans possibly have picked a more inept candidate? No. No, we could not.

It's the Economy, Genius

Friday, October 08, 2010

Intellectualism in public office gets us phrases like "jobs created or saved" as a benchmark for measuring economic success. Any uneducated person, with a little bit of street smarts, knows there's no way to measure that we spent X amount of money to "save" Y amount of jobs.

If You Don't Have Anything Nice to Say, Say it About Sarah Palin

Thursday, October 07, 2010

Meghan McCain is not the first person to become famous because of her name. Paris Hilton isn't exactly a fair comparison, blond and vacant though they both may be. At least Paris became famous in her own way, through sex tapes and reality shows, and not by becoming a faux expert on hotels, writing a nonsensical book about that time in the boardroom where like, omg, someone said something mean to her and she like, totally flipped out.
