The Other McCain

"One should either write ruthlessly what one believes to be the truth, or else shut up." — Arthur Koestler


The family gathered around the Christmas tree for a traditional holiday song, with a traditional greeting at the end: It was a most excellent Christmas: We went out caroling and giving gifts to neighbors on Christmas Eve, then got in the car and drove around looking at Christmas lights. The kids woke up at 7 a.m. to […]


I’m not sure which is more profoundly offensive: The song itself, or Richard McEnroe posting it under the title, “A Ron Paul Christmas”: There are so many layers of sick humor atrociously bad taste hate crime involved, I’m not sure where to begin: Orthodox Jews will be horrified by this shiksa‘s expression of carnal lust for Jew-flesh; […]

Yeah, That Was Pretty Quoteworthy

“Ye thought evil against me; but God meant it unto good.” — Genesis 50:20 (KJV) It’s strange sometimes how you find stuff to blog about.

They Don’t Pay Extra for Tears

My 12-year-old son Jefferson with Herman Cain, July 17, 2011. Journalism is a cynical racket and if you can’t dismiss tragedy and suffering with a sarcastic joke, you don’t belong in a newsroom. Famine and wars, airplane crashes, disease, murder — horrible stuff happens to people every day, and your job is to turn it […]

In Case You Missed It: Merry Revolutionary Christmas From CPUSA!

Season’s Greetings from the godless Bolshevik scum: Christmas time can be so depressing. It brings out some of the worst features of capitalism and rubs them in our faces. . . . Advertisements spur on feelings of guilt if you don’t buy enough of the right kinds of consumer products for people you love. Creative […]

‘Good Tidings of Great Joy’

And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid. And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I […]
