Sunday, December 30th, 2007

Courtesy of Factcheck.or g. They don’t play favorites either: The year 2007 wasn’t a good one for political honesty.

We can usually depend on an orderly transfer of our ever-lengthe ning national to-do list from one nitwit to another every few years without bloodshed. But as Benazir Bhutto’s ...

Swiftboat Veterans Against Jesus

Friday, December 28th, 2007

It looks like the rift is growing between Big Business and the Rapture crowd. This has to be one of the wackiest most twisted political coalitions in history — money-grubbi ng CEOs and Bible-totin tent revivalists.
