Well this sounds like a regular gut-buster of comedic hilarity: Koch Industries, the legitimate business side of Charles and David Koch’s rightwing empire, is looking to put together an improv troupe, which ought to be just about the funniest development in comedy since the invention of the diesel powered whoopee cushion. New York magazine has […]

TRIGGER WARNING: It appears that several states are following the law as laid out in the new farm bill to… wait for it… help poor people eat!!!!1!1! Oh, the humanity! Are you outraged?

Now here’s some constituent service: in New York, Suffolk County Legislator Thomas Barraga got a letter from a 17-year-old whose mother was struck by a van while riding her bike. Matthew Cutrone wrote to Barraga to ask if the county could add bike lanes, or at least warning signs to improve bicycle safety in the […]

So here is a thing that happened: A New York man armed with a rifle, boxes of ammunition and a machete was arrested Friday after allegedly threatening to kill former President George W. Bush, according to a federal court complaint. Apparently, Benjamin Smith also thought that once he’d killed the former president, he would then […]

Rep. Michael Grimm was a Marine before he was an FBI agent before he was a congressman from New York known mostly for doing sex in toilets and getting investigated by the FBI. Also, he once said Tyrant Obama was FEMA Camping Congress with just one tiny $4 per year cell phone fee. That’s some […]

Dinesh D’Souza, the pseudointellectual troll who made a movie about the dishonesty and untrustworthiness of Barack Hussein Obama (do we even know who the man really is?) and the moral scold who had to resign a cushy job as president of a Christian college because he was boning a lady other than the one he […]

You guys! Peggy Noonan wrote a very, very persuasive column that plays a funny “trick” on the reader! See if you can guess where she is heading with this! Just guess! It is astonishing and cannot go unremarked that Mississippi’s Gov. Frank “Boo” Burnham, the conservative who won a 2011 landslide, gave an interview Friday […]

Sean Hannity has announced that he will be leaving his home state of New York forever because Gov. Andrew Cuomo said very mean things last week about how conservatives are simply not welcome in the state. Of course, Cuomo didn’t exactly say that, and Hannity will have to take a little time to pack, but […]

Just to prove that a gross story about a nasty human being can ALWAYS get grosser and nastier, we have this update to the story of former New York State Assemblyman Dennis Gabryszak, who resigned last weekend after multiple women accused him of sexual harassment. And although he resigned, he also claimed that he hadn’t […]

Tom Bauerle, an Amherst, New York, AM radio talker who has long opposed gun control, apparently became convinced that operatives from Gov. Andrew Cuomo were staking out his backyard, so he waved a loaded semiautomatic pistol at the nonexistent intruders. Police in the Buffalo suburb of Amherst took the gun away from him early last […]

Media, media, why hast thou forsaken us? It’s like you can’t pick up a trashy New York tabloid with wildly unfunny headlines and believe a thing they say anymore! It appears that the salacious NY Post story about Eliot ‘Client 9 Inches’ Spitzer sucking the toes of his topless girlfriend while on vacation in Jamaica […]

“I got a boner when I walked into the office today when I saw you,” New York Assemblyman Dennis Gabryszak, 62, (ALLEGEDLY) told his 28-year-old communications director. That is so sweet! What young lady doesn’t want to feel pretty and powerful, knowing she can make an admirer get blood in his peepee until it throbs […]

So we have all read the New York Times story about homelessness in New York, yes? And we have all cried for the smart, tough little girl named Dasani, who lives in a “520-square-foot room with her parents and seven siblings” in a most wretched shelter, where life is most wretched, and we have all […]

When we first learned that Gov. Chris Christie was being accused of ordering the closure of two of Fort Lee, New Jersey’s access lanes to the George Washington Bridge because the town’s Democratic mayor had refused to endorse his re-election, we were like “Eh, maybe, seems far-fetched.” But then we kept reading.

Breathe easy, white people! You are now safe from the terrible scourge that is black boys congregating on a sidewalk while waiting for their bus. It’s just too bad that this “coach” fellow didn’t get arrested too, and instead gave his student athletes an example of a calm, professional African American man giving a policeman […]
