Did somebody here order a bomb?

How little changes in 20 years.

Thank you, MIRT.

They're getting more desperate.


Another account of Romney driving away a GOP voter!

I was at rehearsal last night for "The Importance of Being Earnest" at Cumberland Players. I'm directing the show and my Production Manager is a woman I've known for 20 years. She was my partner Bryan's best friend in college.

We tend not to discuss politics past the local level because she's a lifelong Republican from a Republican family and I've been a confirmed Democrat since working the Mondale campaign in 1984 at the age of 15. We discuss local politics because she and I are the designated shit-stirrers in our respective parties, trying to keep the others honest and true.

During a break in the action last night, I was shocked when she brought up the Presidential race. I tried to steer the conversation back onto safer ground when she said something I never would have expected....

"How can Romney be so stupid?!"

I gaped for a moment and she continued. "How the hell do you expect to win when you go telling 47% of voters that you don't give a shit about them? What kind of an idiot does something like that?"

I made a gentle joke that touched very tangentially on the subject, again trying to steer away from politics but she pressed on.

"That's when I realized that Romney doesn't stand for anything, doesn't mean anything, and is only in this for himself. He's nothing but a self-serving empty suit."

So I guess Gary Johnson won over another vote in New Jersey this week. (I doubt she'd ever vote for Obama.) One more lifelong Republican abandoning the nominee.

It isn't often that you get to see the turning point of an election happen right before your eyes.

Please stop referring to Romney as "Mittfalca." It's very insulting

to that poor horse.

Four years ago today....


...John McCain was ahead of Barack Obama in the Presidential race.



...it's quite a different story.

And today the Senate polls, even those including Rasmussen, show us holding on to a 52-46-2 majority in the Senate. Even if Angus King aligns with the Republicans, we would still have a majority.

Get out there and fight. We need coattails. We need to hold that Senate and take back the House.


Mr. President, the GayTM is no longer in service.

For allowing Cardinal Dolan a bully pulpit (and I mean "bully" in its literal sense) last night to spew his hatred of gays, I am done with your campaign.

I will not be making a donation or campaigning for you until and unless you apologize to us. This GayTM is out of cash.

I will vote for you solely because I do not have a choice, but I'm done funding Conservative "Third-Way" Democrats from now on. I am done funding those who insult us. No more hippie-punching or queer-baiting from our candidates will be tolerated.

More increditble Paul Ryan facts

Of course, in this case "incredible" means "unbelievable."

Anyone have any others?
