The War on Festivus

On December 14, 2008 By

Hilarity in Washington State…

Someone made official request to put up a Festivus pole next to the more traditional Menorah and Nativity scene holiday decorations at the state Capitol’s rotunda.

Local religous nutjobs are pissed.

One Pastor got so mad at members of the anti-religion group that made the request he busted out the breakfast food/hell comparisons:

“Hey I believe in Jesus Christ and if you don’t, that’s alright cause you’re gonna fry like a Jimmy Dean pure pork sausage.”

I have already started researching how to make a similiar request in Ohio for next year.

This may actually be the quote of the year or maybe the decade! Without a doubt the quote of the week though.

But before I show you quote, you need a little background info.

1. The US Auto makers have been doing really poorly lately and are asking for a loan from the US government that must be approved by Congress.

2. David Vitter is a Senator from LA who admitted to having sex with prostitutes after his phone number was discovered on the client list of the ‘DC madame’ last year. He’s recently been seen on TV railing against […]

Bush Loves Bankers and Hates Kids?

On December 13, 2008 By

Reading Hanlon always gets me thinking.

This random thought really got me wondering…

How is it that President Bush pushed congress to approve one trillion dollars for a bail out of the financial services industry but he vetoed a bill to provide health care to 4 million American children that would cost only $7 billion a year over the next 5 years?

Bristol Palin Baby Watch

On December 12, 2008 By

I caught a lot of shit for suggesting that Sarah Palin faked her pregnancy to cover up her daughter’s pregnancy.

Though the Palins never admitted to that, they were forced to reveal that Bristol Palin was pregnant.

At the time they said the baby was due Dec. 18.

I figured they would come up with some excuse as the date approached, but so far nothing.

But you betcha I’m going to follow up on this.

One week to go.

Anyone want to guess the boy’s name?

Kilroy Wins!

On December 7, 2008 By

Congrats to our newest Congresswoman from Ohio, Mary Jo Kilroy. She won the 15th race – ironically by nearly as thin a margin as she lost by last time. She actually won by more than double Pryce’s tally in ’06, but still very thin at 2,311. Very nice. Joseph here will be especially happy. It’s his district.

Dancing With Dogs

On December 7, 2008 By

I saw this on Animal Planet last tonight and nearly spit out my drink I was laughing so hard.

I really tried to think of some way to relate it back to Ohio politics but it’s just so funny I decided to just post it anyway.

You can’t make up shit that hilarious.

Happy End of Prohibition Day!

On December 5, 2008 By

On this day in 1933 the 21st Amendment was ratified and Prohibition finally ended.

Prohibition, the failed experiment of a national ban on alcoholic beverage production and consumption, cost our nation billions of dollars in business and tax revenue and eliminated thousands of jobs. It also required tons of additional government spending to enforce the new laws and prosecute the law breakers.

Funny thing… Prohibition had little effect on alcohol consumption, except to drive it underground. This meant there was no control over quality of the product which could often make it dangerous and even deadly to drink.

Worst […]

Ken Blackwell for GOP Chairman

On December 5, 2008 By

Conservative extremist Ken Blackwell has officially entered the race for GOP chairman.

Rumors are already circulating about Michael Steele’s sexual-preferences and I’ve even heard something about NAMBLA supporting the other candidates.

Time to start circulating this video again…

p.s. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE let Ken Blackwell win. I could totally get used to this winning elections thing.

Prop 8 – The Musical

On December 3, 2008 By

Silly liberal actors…

Full Story...

Thanksgiving is over and I’ve been expecting the wingnuts to start whining about the war on Christmas again.

So far I haven’t heard or seen much of anything except this crappy commercial from the Ohio Christian University that just started running on CNN…

Wow! That was some seriously well spent tuition money.

Until I saw this commercial I never would have known that the Ohio CHRISTIAN University believes Christmas is about the little baby Jesus and everyone should say “Merry Christmas” instead of “Happy Holidays”.

This is going to be one seriously boring holiday season if crap like this […]

Last week I posted about Tom Blummer’s horrible economic predictions.

Last November he claimed the economy was actually quite strong and growing. He predicted we would avoid the coming recession and see strong job growth in 2008.

Funny thing…

A a new report says the US economy has been in a recession since last December. Right around the same time Tom was making his predictions.

And how does Tom Blummer respond to this report?

He denies it.

Instead of admitting he was wrong and moving on, he attacks the report and the people who produced it, […]
