Hi people of Massachusetts! Did you enjoy your brief flirtation with having two Democratic senators like a goddamn blue state should? Welp, that’s over thanks to the Kenyan socialist pretender! After some incredibly boring speculation, it looks like hangdog-faced John Kerry will be your new Secretary of State, America!! GET EXCITED:

So whatever this “Twitter town hall” thing is that Obama is doing, we do not like it. We mostly blame CNN for this weird “ask the Internets” fad going around. Whatever, so here is Jonah Goldberg asking his important question to Obama, which is like most of the questions floating around on Twitter today with […]

First Read: Romney should be glad that Barbour made news yesterday, because his blunder — mistakenly saying that Obama has been engaged in “one of the biggest PEACETIME spending binges in American history” — was an unforced error for the one-term former governor.

The GOP has responded, since leaving power, by filibustering […]

Possibly former senator Norm Coleman has fought valiantly for nearly half a year to secure a return ticket to Washington, DC, where he sleeps in an airless subterranean closet known as “the gimp chamber.” But he has lost his latest legal effort, and the Democratic National Committee is just rubbing salt in the wound.
