Former NYC 9/11 Mayor 9/11 Rudy 9/11 Giuliani is defending his old pal Chris Christie, saying that the New Jersey governor and future former Republican front-runner is definitely not a bully, and that the closure of lanes on the George Washington Bridge last September was merely a “stupid political prank that backfired.” Stuff happens, and […]

And now, for something completely different: Our first story this morning looked at a rightwing website’s million-word “investigation” of the time a guy who photographs naked ladies also took some pictures of Barack Obama. By way of contrast, let’s see what some actual old-fashioned investigative journalism can accomplish: with any luck, it might make a […]

Mindy Meyer, the 22-year-old supervixen running for New York State Senate, is the subject of this nice video from the Jewish Forward.

Here is a story with so many lovely layers of gooey rich ironies — like a trifle, or a Spotted Dick! First, Mitt Romney is in New York City today, cold hangin’ out at firehouses with Rudy 9u11iani while near-simultaneously criticizing Barack Obama for “politicizing” the death of Osama Bin Laden. Second, did you know […]

Disillusioned American voters have so far spent most of this election season moping pathetically to pollsters about how badly they want to elect “any Republican” over their ex-boyfriend Barack Obama despite consistently choosing Obama as their date to the school dance over every single one of the loser Republican candidates in head-to-head matchups. Today’s new […]

The victims of 9/11, man, they are the ones who always get their names on the plaques and monuments and things remembering 9/11. How is that fair? There are some other people too, you know, some politician people, who are doing the important work of building 9/11 monuments. Maybe a 9/11 monument could share some […]

Back when rat-faced 9/11 pornographer Rudy Giuliani was just another cross-dressing sleazebag New York politician kicked out of his house for banging his mistress, the only two people who would take him in were two kindly homosexual gentlemen. And so, for months, Rudy Giuliani was the third leg of this curious tripod: a supposedly straight, […]

Poor Mittens. Rudy Giuliani is edging him out in a new CNN/Opinion Research poll, and Giuliani isn’t even running! GOP voters sure are fickle. You’d think they could at least reward Romney just for politely telling everyone that he actually wants to be president. The Mayor of 9/11 hasn’t declared his candidacy and hasn’t hired […]

The problem with the Republican race for president, so far, is that there’s just not enough of the “craven opportunist stunt candidate on the make who also has a dreadful personal life.” Newt Gingrich just can’t handle all of this by himself! And Donald Trump never needed the money. Is there somebody else kind of […]

A man who famously lived in New York City when 9/11 happened and then made a living off the fact that he got to touch the 9/11 death heap, Rudy Giuliani, is said to be considering running for president, just like everyone else. This is of course a bad idea if he actually wants to […]

There is some sort of election thing happening today, but that’s pretty boring because it’s not a presidential election and it doesn’t involve Sarah Palin. So today is really as good a day as any for the National Review to begin picking Discovery Channel teevee host Sarah Palin’s presidential cabinet, because her election to that […]

It turns out that people who worked on Christine O’Donnell’s campaigns think she is dumb and makes terrible decisions. Somebody call Glenn Greenwald! You’re not allowed to make fun of people for being stupid unless they come from one of those dynastic political families he resents! So what has come out so far today in […]

9/11'S ROBIN  2:01 pm February 18, 2010

KERIK GETS FOUR YEARS, FOR SAVING AMERICA: It’s our “real” Homeland Security secretary, this two-bit thug ( = Greatest American since Nixon!): “WHITE PLAINS — Bernard B. Kerik, a former New York police commissioner who rose to national prominence, was sentenced to four years in prison on Thursday after pleading guilty to eight felony charges, […]

New York Governor David Paterson was spotted over the weekend having lunch at a New Jersey restaurant with some non-wife woman, which is, if not downright illegal, then certainly in poor taste! Where does this man get off, having lunches in New Jersey all the time?

Rudy Giuliani could have made a decent living as a Bette Midler impersonator, but instead he selflessly pursued a career as a ferret-faced political hack and failed presidential candidate. Today on Good Morning America he made the very trenchant observation that George W. Bush did not allow any domestic terrorist attacks during his presidency. This […]
