Ann Coulter is a moron


On Friday's episode of Real Time with Bill Maher, Coulter proudly stated that the United States "could run 37 Iraq Wars for what we spend in one year on Social Security."

Here's what we spend in one year on Social Security:

In 2010, total income was $781.1 billion and expenditures were $712.5 billion, which meant a total net increase in assets of $68.6 billion.

We couldn't run the air-conditioning for 37 Iraq Wars for that much.

As a topper, Coulter stuck around for Overtime, and claimed the United States was bombing Egypt.

A Headline In Search of a Story


The only things missing from this story about Obama doing what they call "opposition research", are the little details of journalism: who, where, what, when & why.

Obama digging up dirt on potential opponent Chris Christie
President Obama's re-election campaign is trying to dig up dirt in the Garden State.

Despite New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie's repeated pronouncements that he will not seek the GOP presidential nomination, Obama operatives are compiling a dossier of what they call "opposition research" -- material that could be used to damage Christie if he changes his mind, The Post has learned.

Not reviving the blog, basically just parking a picture here



An ongoing fight between between Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and supreme leader Ayatollah Khamenei has taken a turn for the weird, as several of the president's closest advisers have been arrested and charged with being "magicians" and invoking djinns, or spirits.

Pakistani ambassador rejected because his name is NSFW in Arabic
Posted By David Kenner Wednesday, February 3, 2010 - 4:48 PM Share

Despite having served for years as a distinguished Pakistani diplomat, Akbar Zeb reportedly cannot receive accreditation as Pakistan's ambassador to Saudi Arabia. The reason, apparently, has nothing to do with his credentials, and everything to do with his name -- which, in Arabic, translates to "biggest dick"

Happy Thanksgiving! Also.

Scary video, but very telling. They all identify with Palin, and it's easy to see why - when confronted with a question, they make up their own facts just like she does.

The beginning of the end of the Republican Party


NY-23 GOPer Scozzafava Suspends Campaign

In a huge development in the NY-23 special election, Republican candidate Dede Scozzafava has announced that she is suspending her campaign, citing an inability to win in light of recent polls and a lack of money -- leaving this race as a vote between Democrat Bill Owens and Conservative Party candidate Doug Hoffman, and a strong message that the Republican Party can no longer nominate moderate candidates, or else face a right-wing revolt.

It's between the Democrats and the Conservatives now! The Republican Party is going the way of the Whigs.

PS - Scozzafava = "the bean shuffles" according to

Patrick Swayze Dead at 57


Jim Carroll too. Give me a few minutes to tally the score.

People who pick up 33 points for picking Patrick Swayze:

Macacawitz - 73 (Michael Jackson, Patrick Swayze)

Terry C - 46 (Patrick Swayze, Ted Kennedy)
HoneyBearKelly - 33 (Patrick Swayze)
Dancinfool - 33 (Patrick Swayze)
Karin - 33 (Patrick Swayze)

Dunk the President, Win a Prize


Rep. Wilson Outburst Leads Senate Dems to Close Loophole in Health Reform Bill
In the Senate, Democrats in the so called "Gang of Six," began moving quickly to close the loophole Rep. Joe Wilson helped bring to light with his outburst during President Obama's address to a joint session of Congress on Wednesday night.

And there you have it. All you have to do to get the President to swing legislation your way is call him a liar during a joint session of congress. After the Van Jones debacle and the Yosi Sargant fiasco, it's apparent that Fearful Leader will bend over forewards to anyone that insults him. Maybe if I change my voter registration to Republican and spit in his face, I'll get a free car.

Pammie's hit the big time!


My neighbor Pamela "Atlas Shrugs" Geller has hit the wingnut bigtime:

I am happy to announce that I've joined the Newsmax family. I will be blogging for Newsmax, along with esteemed luminaries Christopher Ruddy, Dick Morris, Michael Reagan, David Limbaugh, Steve Emerson, Edward I. Koch, Ben Stein, Frank Gaffney, Dr. Laura, Herbert London, John Stossel, and Bernard Kerik, among others.

That's quite a lineup of felons, liars, nepotistic opportunists, nitwits, halfwits, dimwits, vipers, snipers, toe-suckers, Nixon speechwriters, and Methodists that she is joining. She'll fit right in.

Please get your shit together.

Latest single. Happy 4th of July!

Why is Sarah Palin resigning?


1. Willow is pregnant
2. "Crossed the line" with Governor Sanford
3. Devastating Vanity Fair article
4. Putting good of nation over her own petty ambitions
