Things To Come?

2012 is going to be a messy election, there’s no doubt. The Light Worker Ogabe has a sterling record of unbroken miserable failures, unless you’re not the charitable type who gives him the benefit of the doubt that he actually has our Republic’s best interests at heart. If you’re a little more *ahem* cynical and

Interesting Choice of Words

The actor who played the role of young Ralphie in the classic movie “A Christmas Story” found the dead body of a successful singer/songwriter in a Chicago hotel room over the weekend. Peter Billingsley-Michaelsen, who has gone on to a highly successful career as a Hollywood producer, found the body of John O’Brien, 42, on

Great Books that Aren’t All that Farkin’ Great

Except, of course, for the quite great number of times that we’re told that they’re great. Maetenloch, as part of his indispensable overnight threads, discusses books that are supposed to be masterpieces but are really… not. We can’t say that we agree with his judgment of the works of Melville and Stranger in a Strange

And the Earth Opened Up and Swallowed Them

Except it didn’t, unfortunately. Upon hearing the news of the earthquake up near DC we immediately had two thoughts. “We pray that no actual human beings were harmed as a result and may G-d help those who were” and “pity that Congress wasn’t in session and it wasn’t a giant hole opening in the ground

Our most precious blood

It is with deep regret and sorrow that I announce the death of another Australian soldier in Afghanistan. His name and details have not yet been released. He was killed by an IED roadside bomb, less than a few months after arriving. He is the 29th to die in this conflict, where we have fought,

Somebody Let Joe Choo-Choo Biden Speak in Public Again

OK, now we know that president Stuttering Clusterfuck of a Miserable Failure is concerned about his future prospects. What other explanation can you find for him letting his demented VP, Joe “Retard” Biden, get out of his mental institution and speak out in public like this? Clearly he’s distracted. In explaining the demographic concerns of

Operation “Blame It On Somebody Else” Continues Apace

It’s getting to be downright hilarious. Now President Stuttering Clusterfuck of a Miserable Failure is blaming Congress for his abysmal approval ratings. What they’re frustrated right now is they want me to be able to wrangle Congress and get them moving. And you know, we’ve got this thing, separation of powers, and we don’t have

Youngsters Hit Hardest By Ogabe’s Funemployment?

The Hell you say! Would those be the same idiot lemmings who, unencumbered by cerebral activity, stampeded to the polls in ’08 to elect resident Hope’n’Change, currently enjoying misery and privations in the New Utopia they asked for? Hey… *Tap, tap tap!” Why the fuck is our Give-A-Fuck-O-Meter not showing any reading at all? Did

Operation Enduring Clusterfuck About to End?

We’ve been informed from our usual sources that the Stuttering Clusterfuck of a Miserable Failure‘s illegal war against Libya may be reaching an unsuccessful conclusion, just as every one of his other ill-begotten, disastrous adventures. The news about ol’ Moammar Khagoatshit’s ultimate end are, as usual, full of “he’s running, no he’s dead, no he’s

OK, Enough With the Speculation Already

Listen, I know that there have been some alleged “sightings” on the Intertubes about what’s really going on with our ITW here, and I know better than most how it’s almost impossible to resist the urge to speculate and debate such things, particularly when you don’t know what the real story is. I get that.

New, Brilliant Approach from Ear Leader: Blame Somebody Else!

What’s that you say? That’s not actually new? Oh well, what do you expect from a Stuttering Clusterfuck of a Miserable Failure? Anyway, it seems that the SCOAMF’s advisors are getting nervous about their Ear Leader being perceived as a SCOAMF. The White House, burned by failed efforts to work with Republicans and dismayed by

Liberal Idiots Bewitched, Bothered and Bewildered by Obvious Historical Reference

Which is what happens, we suppose, when you concentrate the entirety of your scholastic pursuits on such subjects as gender studies, basket weaving, social justice and comparative folk dancing. Congressman and possible senator Allen West lives in his own serene and strange reality where, no doubt, his recent response to a local Islamic group makes

Former EPA Employee Upset that GOP Doesn’t Love Him

Because, well, the EPA are the legislative, executive and judiciary branch all rolled into one, according to one Richard Poeton, certified cretin. I worked for the Environmental Protection Agency for 20 years and am not surprised that the Republican Party is bashing the agency again. Nor is anybody else who’s been keeping up with what

That’s Exactly It, Ace

Ace has quite a few thoughts about our role in wars and the cleanups afterwards, now that the word is out that Moo-amma Khadaffi might be running for the Tunisian hills (not a good choice, you ignorant twit. Tunisia is where Carthage used to be), and it’s all quite good. But our favorite line is

The Summer of Our Discontent

Mheh. No, seriously. Guess what just died? The A/C, that’s what. At this point, I can’t think of anything else to do other than laugh. Seriously. It may be warm here, but it’s a heck of a lot hotter in Kandahar, or so we’re told. Anyway, from doing a preliminary check, it appears that it’s
