But, like a mortally wounded […]

‘Why Do Younger Men Shorten Women’s Lifespans?’

by Smitty Roxanne de Luca poses the subject question. First off, I think that the Progressive notion that women=men is as much garbage as global warming. Neither gender is superior, in my estimation. I will note in Genesis 3, when the politics hit the fan, that a man is more immediately culpable. Cutting right to […]

Global Warming Is Dead. Will ManBearPig Campaign For ‘Gentleman’ Jim Moran Again In 2012?

by Smitty Red Alexandria trots out the tiny violins for global warming, and showed what a tool VA State Senator Adam Ebbin is. Ebbin, however, is but a jeweler’s screwdriver compared to the breaker bar that is ‘Gentleman’ Jim; but neither can hold an incandescent bulb to the uber-tool that is ManBearPig, seen here campaigning […]

by Smitty Breitbart.tv has said “NEWT DENIED ADVOCATING INDIVIDUAL MANDATE DURING THURSDAY’S DEBATE, 2009 AUDIO PROVES HE DID” At Legal Insurrection: This is wrong.

Aw, C’mon, Dan: How About A Little Real World View? UPDATE: Meet. . .
Willard Fabio

by Smitty It may be the case that Stacy made an accidental left turn on Kübler-Ross Drive while in Florida. However, noticing the fact that Bruce CampbellMitt Romney looks nearly Clooney-esque in his chiseled, masculine perfection, in contrast to the former Speaker-as-big-as-the-House, is just blatantly obvious. Should the election be solely about ideas and policy? […]
