We give much love to Old Handsome Joe “Now You’re Jack Kennedy!” Biden because he is excellent and pretty much the perfect wacky, free-wheeling, avuncular Vice Presidential complement to Barry’s somnolent rationality. But we also have integrity, so we are gonna call Joe Biden out: New York’s fine LaGuardia airport is not like “a third […]

Oh no she di’int! But wait! She dih’! Hillary Clinton tweetered out this amusing comment on the Sportsball Extravaganza Sunday, and while most people with normal reading comprehension read it as a comment on the coverage she’s received on the Rupert Murdoch Rage Network, as compared to the humiliating pounding of the Denver sportsball fellows, […]

Happy Super Sportsball Sunday! Go read the Times’s one million pages of regular sports coverage AND thinkpieces about the Super Bowl! Or don’t. Go read about Chris Christie! Or just read what we wrote about Christie already. Definitely read the Dylan Farrow letter from yesterday and then promptly go fight with everyone on the internet […]

We usually don’t get around to praising Laura Bush much in these parts. Our feelings on her tend to run the gamut from “meh” to “oh, do shut up.” But we are pretty into her latest interview, where she says that she would be totally down with scrutinizing a future First Gentleman the way we […]

So here’s a bit of video editing that’s not going to go on anyone’s resume: In a story on Hillary Clinton being interviewed at the National Auto Dealers Association, because of course that’s a natural venue for former secretaries of state, some genius at CNN edited two parts of the video together with a 14-nanosecond […]

In case you missed it because you were sleeping off your Saturday hangover, or had something better to do like watching paint dry, Sen. Rand “Aqua Buddha” Paul mansplained, as only a Republican can, how there isn’t really a war on women, except there is, but Democrats started it. (Also, he’s rubber, you’re glue, and […]

Oh hello there. Happy Sunday! Were you just chillin’ out maxin’ and relaxin’ or were you thinking “gosh, I would really like to read eleventy million words about Rand Paul”? If the latter, the Sunday New York Times has got your back, Jack. Did we read the complete history of Rand, son of Ron? Oh, […]

Did you wake up this morning, grab yourself a double-shot of artisan organic free-trade liberal latte, and wonder what news stories out there should be filed under what-the-ever-lovin’-fuck? Good news, because the New York Times Magazine is ON IT. Not to be outdone by Time’s stock photo image of a pants-suit-wearing lady misandrying a tiny […]

It has been a rough week for non-thugs in America, as blackity-black people are flaunting their sportsball prowess all over the place. Why, even Michelle Obama used the precious sacred White House space to FLOTUS like a butterfly, sting like a bee, and dunk on the Miami Heat. That’s some straight up hooliganism there. Barbara […]

It would be so exciting to live in a country where “Obamacare Medical Codes Confirm: Execution by Beheading To Be Implemented in America”, but PolitiFact says no, we cannot live there because there is a fire on its pants. Why is PolitiFact so mean to our childlike sense of wonder and our precious need to […]

Today, a special treat! For a certain value of “treat,” at least. Instead of buttheaded remarks from our comments queue, we have a special sampling from some email correspondence sent to Yr Editrix, from a gentleman named Stephen Hitchcock (we are using his name, because… well, because he’s a monumental dick). The first missive was […]

Sisters and brothers, This is the time of year when many of us celebrate holidays! I hope you are enjoying the one or ones you celebrate with any persons you hold dear. I know I am, with Bill and Chelsea and her husband Marc Mezvinsky. I’ll tell you — you haven’t played Scattegories until you’ve […]

Never mind that he’s six years older than Ronald Reagan was when he was sworn in; Jerry Brown has some enthusiastic support for a presidential run. And, in the language of political vagueness, he hasn’t absolutely ruled out the possibility of running, although spokesman Jim Evans quoted a May answer that Brown gave to a […]

Hey, remember that fat white guy who lost weight and now wants to put the ‘white’ back in White House? No, not the one what closes bridges because of petty political bickering — the other GOP white guy, the one who rocks out on gee-tar. Yeah, Mike Huckabee. He is back in the news because […]

The Ready for Hillary Super PAC, the premier “Draft Hillary” organization, held its DC launch party on Thursday at Look Lounge, a club on 19th and K. Tickets went for $20.16 and the invitation touted an appearance by Tim Ryan, a Democratic congressman from the 13th District of Ohio. The potential candidate appeared poised, but […]
