Sarah Palin Chose Poorly: Truedat

I think I was done with her when she quit as Governor. Yeah she had to deal with a lot of stupid BS that other politicians didn’t have to deal with that was affecting her family, but she could’ve also just sort of kept her head down and governed and it would’ve blown over. In […]

Reclaiming the Silly Season

No riots. No Norwegian mass murderers. No freak storms. No spying journalists or shuttered newspapers. No royals spending their honeymoon in hotels on opposite sides of South African coastal towns. Finally, it’s truly August, and the press can settle down to fixating on… The early stages of a Presidential Election. And oh my lord I’m […]

#birthcertificate

This story makes me laugh. I think he probably didn’t release it all this time just because it was too easy making stupid people fulminate about his origins, but I think it’s interesting that he released it now. Maybe Trump isn’t as much of a joke as I’ve thought. Meanwhile: Bedtime. Have I mentioned the […]

NSW Local Election Worker Brett McS Reporting

I was at the polls all day yesterday, handing out how-to-votes for the local Liberal (ie conservative) candidate in Charlestown for the NSW state election. I must have had an effect (am I too modest?), because this seat is (was) so strongly Labor that the Liberals had never bothered to even run a candidate before, […]

Let’s Be Honest: They’re Smarting Because of What Jon Stewart Said About Him

Kieth Olbermann gets suspended for donating money to three Democrats. In the wise words of one comedy twitterer: MSNBC suspends Keith Olbermann for donating money to 3 Democrats. That’s shocking: Olbermann gave money to only 3 Democrats? What’s really going on here is they want to get rid of him not because of all the […]

The Number One Man In America For Consistently Getting A Couple Hundred Votes Short of 50%

Dino Rossi just conceded his third squeaker of an election. Honestly.

Dino, Oh Dino

What must Dino Rossi be thinking today? I mean, this can’t be pure bad luck. Why is he the one who can’t win or lose an election three tries in a row? He can’t close the deal! In either direction! The Corner – WA SEN: Too Close To Call

The Boomers WILL Die Sometime

We just have to keep the hope… The Corner – What Happened in California? Why did the Republican wave stop at the California state line? There will be much speculation about problems with the Whitman and Fiorina campaigns, and some of it will be valid. Nevertheless, much of the answer lies in the makeup of […]

On House Signs, Dino, and Depressed Democrats

Everyone knows who Dino Rossi is, right? Ran for governor 6 years ago, won 2 counts, lost the third (that’s won 2 of 3) so lost the whole thing (in ever decreasing margins; just enough to be covered by ever increasing numbers of Seattle homeless political enthusiasts), then ran again 2 years ago and lost […]

I’m So Conflicted

On the one hand, I can vote for Meg Whitman for Governor of California, against the zombie-like Jerry Brown; I can vote for anyone but Gavin Newsom for Lt Governor; I can vote for Carly Fiorina for Senate against Barbara Boxer. These are all nationally recognized figures in our country. Or I can vote for […]

Overly Franchised Conundrum

I finally registered to vote in this stupid state back in August. My voter registration card came ‘n everything. But we’re leaving before the end of October. The election’s in November. And my California absentee ballot’s already come in the mail. Serious question: Which state should I vote in, and if you pick California, is […]
