Hilarious Jay Carney Photoshop Fail

Unbelievable. A puff piece on White House Press Secretary Jay Carney and his wife, ABC News reporter Claire Shipman in the decadent DC social rag Washingtonian contains a Photoshop disaster so bad it could have been done by the Iranian military. Ironically, one of the questions published in the article asks Shipman to name the […]

CNN & NBC’s Close Ties to Obama, Anita Dunn, Bob Bauer and IRS Intimidation

The ongoing revelations of the intimidation of conservatives executed by Obama’s IRS and FEC agencies are still coming to light but an interesting wrinkle to the story is the close relationship between CNN and NBC/MSNBC and those inside the administration perpetrating that intimidation. NBC/MSNBC had recently hired former White House Communications Director Anita Dunn as […]

Another reason to love the store progressives love to hate

The ever-so-wise Washington DC city council apparently decided to pass what essentially amounted to an economic bill of attainder against Wal-Mart mandating that retailers of a certain size pay $12.50 per hour minimum wage vs. the city’s existing $8.25 per hour minimum wage. Wal-Mart is currently building three and planning three more stores in economically […]

Sen. Orrin Hatch: Obama Fiscal Proposal ‘Classic Bait and Switch’

Senator Orrin Hatch (R, Utah) delivered the GOP weekly address and it was a damn good one. He pulled no punches and laid it out straight that Obama lied when he ran for re-election and perpetrated a “classic bait and switch” maneuver. What ever you think of Mr. Hatch or the GOP, he spoke truth […]

Metro DC now America’s richest neighborhood

Yep – richer than NYC’s elite suburbs or Silicon Valley.  Is anyone really surprised? Federal employees whose compensation averages more than $126,000 and the nation’s greatest concentration of lawyers helped Washington edge out San Jose as the wealthiest U.S. metropolitan area, government data show. The U.S. capital has swapped top spots with Silicon Valley, according […]

“We have a divided government because we have a divided country”

Charlie’s doing us all a favor and explaining simply what’s happening in DC: As clearly as any issue you could name, the debate over the US debt ceiling exposes the radically different governing philosophies held by Democrats and Republicans.

“There must be more money!”

I’m dusting off this old chestnut again because it’s the kind of obscure cultural reference that gets me off and just so illustrative of our current financial state.  I hate to just throw up a big block quote instead of my usual insightful, all-original content but the allegory is strong in this one.

The Forty Percent Solution

What would Obama do?  He’d latch on to some focus-group-tested, easily demonized entity d’two minute hate du jour then repeat it time and again until you’re pretty freaking sure he’s either retarded or gone daffy.  It’s really all he’s got.  Repeating the same tired platitude over and over.  During the campaign it was some variation […]
