Did Bazillionaire Bruce Rauner Bully A Reporter Out Of His Job? Yes. Yes, He Did.

He's just a regular super rich guy who's a total dick
Bruce Rauner, the Republican candidate for Illinois governor, is just a regular guy with a van. Oh, and a $100,000 wine club membership. And some Cayman Islands cash. And a charming disposition, by which we mean he allegedly said of a former employee who was suing him that he’d bury her, and hurt her and her family, and make her “radioactive.” Nice guy! (That is sarcasm.) And also, it seems, he is a first-rate bully. And we don’t mean the kind who steals your lunch money. The now-former Chicago Sun-Times reporter David McKinney posted his resignation letter online, in which he describes the consequences he faced after reporting on the lawsuit we just mentioned. The one over which Rauner allegedly made those nice-guy threats. It’s pretty un-freaking-believable: Read more on Did Bazillionaire Bruce Rauner Bully A Reporter Out Of His Job? Yes. Yes, He Did….

Latest Wasilla Success Story: Mercede Johnston Posing For Playboy

According to the world’s most trusted news source, some celebrity website we’ve never heard of, Levi Johnston’s sister Mercede is going to pose nude for Playboy. Why? And why now? Well, America collectively said, “Who? What? Sure,” when they were asked if they wanted to see Levi Johnston’s gonads in Playgirl, and it turns out other people tangentially related to Sarah Palin have naked bodies too. Oh, and Mercede is 18 now. So congratulations to Mercede, we guess. We always liked her because she was literate enough to write a blog, which is pretty impressive for Alaska and that town in particular. She is now a shining example of the great American entrepreneurial tradition of capitalizing on one’s relationship to the Palin family. This is her Sputnik moment. We are seeing Big Things.

Tony Hayward Being Shipped Off To Siberia

BP’s sacrificial Scottish piñata, Tony Hayward, is not exactly getting his life back. BP is reportedly sending him to Siberia, to run some operation there. Haha, isn’t that where the Soviets/Putin send traitors? And didn’t Washington just trade the Sexy Spy and her yuppie buddies for some Russian scientist who had been held in a Russian Prison Camp? And didn’t Vladimir Putin just spend a chill weekend with the deported Russian spies, just cold singing karaoke and keeping it real about the spy business? And didn’t the reported new BP CEO barely escape from Russia with his life? Read more on Tony Hayward Being Shipped Off To Siberia…

Hot Older Ladies More Attractive During Recessions

According to Experts, the recently minted members of America’s middle class — the ones who got ARMs on their three-bedroom ranches in the exurbs and took out $600 a month car loans on their Ford Explorers and used credit cards to pay for their Starbucks Gargantua-chinos every morning — will now be sad hobos along with the rest of us. They will be the “former middle class.” But one traditionally neglected and sorely undervalued population should do quite well in the tough times ahead: sexy ladies of a certain age.

GOP Voters Having More Sex … But Sex With What?

A shocking new study proves that Republican voters are having more sex than their Democratic counterparts, but Democrats are having less sex with more people, and everybody is basically watching pornography day and night, and both the right and left would happily let themselves be sodomized by the new president, in the White House, as long as that president is “attractive” to the kind of people who vote.

America Still Wants to Fuck Bill

Playboy polled its readers as to which of two potential first ladies is sexier. And apparently it’s Bill Clinton over Ann “Mitt’s First and Only Wife” Romney. Because Playboy “readers” are all finally coming to grips with their homoerotic impulses, or something. Also because Ann looks like a middle-aged woman whose had like 500 identical sons, and Bill looks like an old horn-dog. They really shoulda done this with the trophy wives, though. We’d have our own “Mrs. Fred Thompson vs Mrs. Hottie Kucinich” poll but we have to live with ourselves. Battle of the Sexiest [Playboy] Read more on America Still Wants to Fuck Bill…
