The “Fundamentals” Of A McBush Presidency

Monday, September 22nd, 2008

Every now and then, one encounters words of utter clarity. Such is the case with Paul Krugman's observations in the aftermath of John McCain's infamous statement, "The fundamentals of our economy are strong". From The New York Times: Aha.

Thursday, September 18th, 2008

On the lighter side, a friend sent me this link from an RCP story - the clip is a spoof of an interview with an Australian official about an oil tanker wreck that really happened last year.

Saturday, September 13th, 2008

Sometimes the only respite from the partisan protestations and fabrications is humor...and today felt like one of those days, Yes, I realize humor can also be misconstrued through the prism of petty partisanship...which is why I intend to preface this posting with a clear and concise caveat.

Quote of the Day 8/6/08

Wednesday, August 6th, 2008

There are no physicists in the hottest parts of hell, because the existence of a 'hottest part' implies a temperature difference, and any marginally competent physicist would immediately use this to run a heat engine and make some other part of hell comfortably cool.  This is obviously impossible.  - Richard ...

John “Chuckles” McCain: Politician, Panderer, Or Humorist?

Tuesday, August 5th, 2008

The McCain campaign wants us to believe that their recent attack ads are simply an attempt to inject a little humor into the 2008 election.
