Yeah, Newt Gingrich, we’ll be busy scrubbing the toilets of your…

December 14, 2011


Let’s talk about Newt Gingrich. Or, as I like to call him….the Pillsbury Doughboy. That’s mean, you say? Well maybe Newt shouldn’t tell “poor kids” to scrub toilets. Because that’s a heck of a lot meaner if you ask me… If you missed it, take a listen: Gingrich ‘Poor Kids To Work As Janitors’ PigMine3 […]

Recent Iraq War developments deserved more attention

November 17, 2011


Beginning in 2003, coverage of the war in Iraq dominated the news media. One could not open up a newspaper or watch the nightly news without being updated on developments concerning Iraq.

That’s what I get for not reading emails… Anyway, when I heard that she visited UConn, I rolled my eyes. She’s probably such a daddy’s girl, I thought to myself. […]

That’s more Weiner than we can handle

October 12, 2011


Over the summer, we all got a healthy (unhealthy?) dose of Weiner in the news. In case it wasn’t enough to satisfy your desires though, you can get even more Weiner by reading a book coming out this week that’s written by Traci Nobles, the cheerleading coach who exchanged explicit text messages with the former […]

September 22, 2011


Does that possibility upset you? Scare you? Anger you? It should. And if it doesn’t, then you are lacking a key element of being human, and that is a conscience. Let’s go over the facts of the Troy Davis case: As you can see from this time-line, there was significant doubt over Davis’ guilt. I’ll […]
