Why Won’t Mitt Romney Root For His Wife’s Dumb Horse?

Mitt Romney has taken a look at how they do things over there in old England-Land, and has quickly come to the well-justified conclusion that their Olympics are just a hot metric tonne of garbage compared to the awesome USA American Olympics he ran in Salt Lake City. But you’d think that he’d at least take some time out of hating the 2012 Olympics in general to show a little love for America’s greatest Olympian! We’re of course talking about Rafalca, the dressage horse partly owned by Mitt’s wife Ann. Why is he pretending that he hasn’t spent long evenings out in the stables, feeding Rafalca carrots and pouring out his soul? Read more on Why Won’t Mitt Romney Root For His Wife’s Dumb Horse?…

Voter Turnout High, White At RNC Secret Ballot Election

The 168 members of the Republican National Committee will cast their secret ballots today to decide who gets to be the next RNC Chair, and exit polls already suggest that Michael Steele lost by a million secret racial slurs. Will the white lady from Missouri win? Or maybe the white guy with the funny name? It’s difficult to say, since all of the candidates who are not Michael Steele are white and love Ronald Reagan and machine gun deregulation. It’s a win-win-win-win-Michael Steele loses! You can probably follow Michael Steele’s Adventures in Unemployment at streetguy.blogspot.com.

America’s Saddest Birthday Ever

By the Comics Curmudgeon Birthdays are always a riot when you’re young, right? The cake … the presents … the party … it’s your day, and your parents are the ones who organize the whole thing. But as you grow older, your birthday becomes more melancholy, eventually representing both an occasion where you have to make merry even if your heart isn’t it and a reminder of your encroaching decrepitude. So too is this true for America! Our nation’s bickering gay dads, Thomas Jefferson and John Adams, died on the country’s 50th birthday, and it’s been all downhill ever since. After jump, find out how our country is trying to cheer itself up for the Big Two-Three-Four. Read more on America’s Saddest Birthday Ever…

The Opposite Of Progress

By the Comics CurmudgeonHey, kids, remember your civics class, where you learned that there are other parts of the government that aren’t currently controlled by Muslims? There’s the so-called “Supreme Court,” which everyone ignores most of the time right up until they legalize gayness; but then there’s this other thing, whaddya call it, Congress, and there’s like dozens and dozens of those jackholes, so even though they aren’t “worse” than President Antichrist on an individual level, there are more of them, so it kind of balances out! Anyway, one half of Congress just passed some crazy-ass law last week. How did they manage to do this? Simple: DEVIL MAGIC. Read more on The Opposite Of Progress…

Tim Kaine Talks To Reporters At Creepy Horse-Drowning Festival

Imaginary Democratic vice presidential frontrunner Gov. Tim Kaine is now being harassed by the press all over his weird state of Virginia. He told reporters this morning that he doesn’t “have any idea about where the process is” and he hasn’t talked to Obama “for a number of weeks, since before his trip.” He is already the Vice President of Lies, it seems. But where did he tell reporters these terrible lies? “Kaine, widely rumored to be at the top of Obama’s veep short list, attended the annual Chincoteague Pony Swim this morning with his 13-year old daughter.” Oh, how predictable: our would-be second black vice president is a deranged horse-drowning fetishist.

Somebody Get L. Ron Romney a Prop Horse!

If We Did Not Have a Katherine Harris It Would Be Necessary to Invent Her

Above, George Allen, who is still under the mistaken impression that Virginia is in the West. Or that he is from Virginia. Or something. The picture is from Bristol’s 150th Anniversary parade. Convertibles, while suitable transportation for the other politicians and public figures, were deemed “not obnoxious enough” by Mr. Allen, who, shortly after the parade ended, trampled his sister.

To Do: Bourbon and Bull Balls

Hayden (rather than the uber-hot Fran Townsend). But here are a few things that you can do on this glorious spring weekend: Read more on To Do: Bourbon and Bull Balls…
