ACU: Conservatism Bought Off By Corporations, Literally

The American Conservative Union is one of the oldest, most stolid conservative political organizations in the United States. Its annual rankings of members of Congress are widely anticipated and reported by mainstream political journalists, and its conferences and meetings receive significant, often live, coverage by TV news networks. ACU staffers write columns setting the political [...]

I gave Governor Blagojevich a bribe, and all I got was this lousy t-shirt! (Get it Ethically Here)

One of the interesting things about designing t-shirts is trying to figure out which ones will be popular and which won’t. Nope, I’m still not good those predictions. I was pretty sure my Man Plus Woman Equals Thingy would be a wildly popular t-shirt zinging the fundamentalists for their marriage equation, but nope, I haven’t [...]

No More For Big Oil Until Stevens Corruption Trial

It strikes me as extremely unseemly for the Senate to vote on any bill to benefit oil companies, with Ted Stevens remaining as a voting member of Senate, until the Stevens trial is completed. Knowing that Ted Stevens appears to have been bribed by oil companies, and rushing oil drilling legislation through in a time frame that will allow Senator Stevens to vote on the legislation would be profoundly unscrupulous.

Obama Promises Corrupt Religious Kickback Scheme

These religious programs are corrupt. They corrupt the government by setting government policy with the purpose of political allegiance. They corrupt churches by encouraging church leaders to campaign for the candidate who promises to write the biggest government handout check back to the church after Inauguration Day. [...]
