Magliocchetti Family Connections to the United States Congress

Federal investigations into the financial activities of Paul Magliocchetti, his family, and his PMA Group lobbying firm are proceeding apace, chugging onward with the slow velocity but strong momentum of a freight train toward the destination of prosecution. The allegations are considerable: that the lobbyist Magliocchetti used his employees and his family as puppet contributors [...]

Obama Birth Certificate Shows He Was Never Born!

This news means that Barack Obama is not eligible to serve as President, or to drink beer. You know what they say – if you don’t want to sit down and have a beer with a guy, he definitely isn’t qualified to be President. [...]

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 [...]

The Ballad of Rod Blagojevich (Music Video Minute)

To the tune of “They’re Always in the Way” (aka “Father’s Whiskers”):

My name is Rodney Blago I head up Illinois I don’t mind all the power But the laws get me annoyed

Oh, they’re always in the way And only chumps obey Those laws I skirt They really hurt They’re always in the [...]

Sarah Palin and the Thomas Muthee Witch Hunt

Thomas Muthee accused Mama Jane of being a sorceress – a witch who was engaging in spiritual warfare to curse to town of Kiambu. Muthee’s proof of Mama Jane’s witchcraft? There had been three car accidents in the neighborhood of the clinic where Mama Jane worked. [...]

Sex, Drugs and Bribery in Oil Drilling Leases Should Stop Congress

It would be foolish for Congress to pass legislation authorizing expanded drilling before the bribery and other crimes are fully investigated… Foolish, or simply corrupt. [...]

Why Does Sarah Palin Insist On Controlling Investigation Of Her?

Whatever actually happened between Palin, Wooten and Monegan, the fact that Sarah Palin is attempting to use her power as Governor to crush an independent investigation of the matter is troubling in itself. [...]

Sarah Palin Sexual Affair Is Irrelevant

Sarah Palin is a bad vice presidential candidate because she is inexperienced, poorly educated, inconsistent, unethical, disrespectful of the Constitution, politically extremist and mentally unstable. We don’t need a Palin sex scandal to conclude that Sarah Palin should never be given a job in the White House. [...]

Obama Aide Showed Funny YouTube Video Once! Outrage!

There have been a lot of people who have worried that if Barack Obama becomes the Democratic presidential nominee, the Republican Party would come out with devastating attacks that Obama could never survive. But, all we get is this sort of stuff – a technology advisor once showed a 30-second movie that was made by somebody else that a few humorless twits regard as blasphemous. All the Republicans have been able to muster is to spray Obama with a special brew of right wing silly juice. [...]

Dumb Idea of 2008: Mix Religion With Presidential Campaigns

The conspicuous use of religion by the presidential campaigns hasn’t helped the candidates who have done it. It’s hurt them. Please, in 2012, let’s not repeat this tawdry little faith-based experiment. Let’s return to talking about presidential candidates’ policies instead of their prayers. [...]

Unity08 Gave Money to Draft Bloomberg Committee

Happy April 15! This isn’t just the day you need to file your tax return. It’s also the day that political organizations not regulated by the FEC are required to file their 1st Quarter disclosures of political contributions with the Internal Revenue Service.

Well, looky looky. I see the Draft Bloomberg Committee has indeed filed [...]
