Glimpsing the Future

Thursday, December 4th, 2008

Found this sad bit of clairvoyance in my inbox today: I think this cartoon is spot on. We have an epidemic of apathy and buck passing summed up in the recent trampling death at WalMart in New York. A corporation shrugging off any culpability for creating an environment through its marketing to ...

Chimpy McStumblebum Has Some Regrets

Wednesday, November 12th, 2008

So now he has regrets. In a new interview, Chimpy McStumblebum reveals that - EGADS! - he has some regrets. This seems logical given the carnage he's wrought over the last 8 years. A truly reflective man would look back at Katrina and say, "What the hell was I thinking! I ...

More Empty Rhetoric

Tuesday, October 28th, 2008

She hasn’t learned her job description, she has a multitude of positions on every issue, and she’s a profligate spender of taxpayer money on nights spent in her own ...

America Is Finally Exercising Good Judgment

Wednesday, October 22nd, 2008

The McCain campaign began with a strategy - to the extent they have a strategy - of painting Barack Obama as an untested, inexperienced candidate. Proving their flair for anti-creativity, they caged this stance from Hilary Clinton and her 3 am phone call ads. While they stayed on this message ...

Palin: So.Not.Hired

Tuesday, October 21st, 2008

In the real world, if you show up for a job interview unprepared, you don't get the job. If you have no understanding of what the job actually is that you are applying for, you won't even get the first interview. I want to drive a garbage truck because I've always ...
