Personally, I think if we vote the same people back into office

we'll get better results than we got before.

No, really

Good night.

The Hard Left simply doesn't realize how damned difficult it is

to carry two cell phones.

Let's get real for a moment: because the Hard Left doesn't know enough to do pragmatic favors for Jamie, Lloyd, and the other shrewd businessmen who love their country, they're usually broke and could never afford two cell phones.

Well, as a person who can afford two cell phones, let me tell you: carrying two cell phones is damned difficult work. (No, having your assistant carry them doesn't make it any easier, nice try.)

So, Moonbats, until you've walked a mile in another woman's (beautifully-crafted!) shoes, stop being Republicans. Just pipe down and let the pros handle this.

Tehran Tom's political career is over

Remember when Republicans shut down the government last year, and it was an utter fiasco for them? Most Americans were furious at that stunt, and Republicans ended up totally capitulating?

Well, I haven't been watching the news for some months, but I'm guessing that Republicans must have paid dearly at the ballot box last November. And the lunatic ringleader of that collosal @#$& up, a Canadian-born fellow IIRC, has probably never been heard from again. LOL, people once spoke of him as a Presidential contender.

I damned well AM ...

I am a Liberal, and am damned proud to be labeled as such.

By all means, bludgeon me with it; it hurts so good!


First-Way Manny,
Liberal, Liberal, Liberal.
Flaming, screaming, confessed Liberal.
Damn! You bet!

This won't end pretty

47 Senators telling the world that our President is irrelevant.

Either the President steps in with both fists balled and a ready knee, or it will be even far worse.

There will be a big @#$%in' fight (and there will be drama), there's no avoiding it. The only question is how big. If our side doesn't choose the ground and the time, the other side will, and that will suck that much worse.

Good luck to all of us.

Why do Third Wayers hate being called Third Wayers?

I keep reading complaints, by people who seem to basically embrace the Third Way's positions, claiming that they've been deeply wounded by being called Third-Wayers.


Since I'm not the brightest bulb in the chandelier; perhaps someone can explain what's up? And if you've been called a Third Wayer and are offended, can you help us to understand why you're upset by it? Or is it that your opinions substantially diverge from theirs?

I never, ever thought I'd see the day

when people who call themselves progressive Democrats excuse a vote to wage war in Iraq.


Sorry, I don't see this as a gray area. It was nothing but staggering stupidity or staggering malevolence, and neither is acceptable to me, nor should it be acceptable to you.

I find it very hard to believe

that many people could defend Hillary Clinton's email shenanigans.

Something doesn't compute.

I find it to be both bizarre and disturbing.

Ask Third-Way Manny!, Inaugural Edition

(The first, and hopefully the last, in a series.)

Dear Third-Way Manny:

I'm the CEO of an enormous American company. I recently hired someone, let's call her him Bartleby, to run the critical group which is responsible for our partnership agreements with other huge companies. He came highly recommended, although I couldn't actually figure out what he'd done to earn such impressive accolades. But he seemed to be a fighter and a winner, so I hired him.

A most unusual thing occurred his first day on the job! During training on how to use our email system, Bartleby simply declined to use our email system, saying plainly "I would prefer not to." Instead, Bartleby announced that he'd use only his personal email address (bartleby@ifwecandoitformarcrichwecandoitforyou.com) for all corporate correspondence, and further - are you sitting down? - that his personal email would be hosted from a computer in his basement!

This seemed a little unusual, and perhaps risky. For example, we have a policy of retaining company email to ensure that we comply with audit laws, but Bartleby would not hear of it. "I would prefer not to. Instead, I'll sort through my personal emails after I am no longer in your employ, and send to you those I deem to be yours."

Certainly, from time to time some of our employees use personal email for business, say, when they need something to get through our highly-secure networks that sometimes prevent attachments from going in or out. But to totally refuse to use our email system? As the kids say these days, WTF?

Third-Way Manny, as the CEO of an enormous corporation, I'm certainly not one of the Lumpenproletariat that are normally becalmed by your concise and mellifluous explanations using only small words. But still, I admire your incredible wisdom, insight, and lightning disco-moves; and today I seek your good counsel: What am I to do about Bartleby and his unusual demands around using email?


Dear Reader,

There's nothing wrong, or even suspicious, about what Bartleby wants to do -frankly, only a Lumpenprole would use a business email address for business email. The real question is why are you totally obsessed with hating on Bartleby over something that happens all the time? A hatred so unwarranted, so desperate, and so intense, it can only stem from something to do with private parts.
