According to Fox News, Bush captures bin Laden

As most Americans celebrated the death of Osama bin Laden today I wondered how the good folks at Fox & Friends would handle this latest news bombshell. After all now that Public Enemy #1 (Osama) had been vanquished, but by their Public Enemy #2 (Obama), would they be able to rejoice? I’m pleased to report that … Continue reading

Of course Egypt is Obama’s fault, isn’t everything?

As the events unfolded on the streets of Cairo this weekend I tried to predict how the Right would blame this one on Obama. I assumed (yeah, yeah, I know what happens when you assume) they would point to Obama’s June, 2009 speech in Cairo. You remember that one don’t you? It was the one … Continue reading

However Nixon was an underachiever compared to George … Continue reading

The second coming of Mitt Romney: The Anti-Monarchist

At the recent Conservative Political Action Committee (CPAC) meeting Mitt Romney spoke of Democrats as being Neo-Monarchists. I guess with the good names already taken by other speakers– Marxists, Leninists, Nazis, America haters, Trotskyites (!), Queers, Jihadists, etc.–Mitt had to settle on the quaint but archaic neo-Monarchists. Say what?I had to double-check my calendar. Yup it’s 2010.            For … Continue reading
