Because Mitt Is Just Too Cool

by Smitty Why is the low pressure of the Romney vacuum continuing to bolster Santorum? Romney, for reasons that continue to remain a mystery to me, appears to be following a strategy of actively avoiding the Tea Party movement. To my knowledge, he has never addressed an actual tea party rally or local tea party […]

Is Dr. Melissa Going Just A Little Easy On The GOP?

by Smitty I submit that Dr. Melissa Clouthier is going a tad too easy on the GOP here: . . .I never see the GOP pondering their really bad choices in politicians that had money but had little charisma, political deftness or policy intelligence.

Insulted Again

By Dan Riehl this time, seconding Melissa Clouthier’s “wild animal” characterization of journalists as inherently untrustworthy. At least he links me. Love me, hate me, as long as you link me.

“I don’t look at what I do as being angry and mean, and if it comes off like that, then I think maybe some people who are being criticized, maybe I’m hittin’ a nerve with ’em.” — Will Folks, Republican douchebag And I mean “douchebag” in the most respectful and affectionate way. What’s weird is […]
