UPDATE! Now with video stolen from Mediaite! CNN, after spending almost an hour getting more and more frenzied while trumpeting its scoop that law enforcement had identified a suspect and had either arrested that suspect or were on the verge of arresting that suspect, just had the terrible misfortune of having to retract its entire […]

Good news, liberal-arts majors with Internet connections! Now even though you don’t have a “real job” but are making a livable amount of money by cobbling together three blogging gigs and so don’t have health insurance, starting in 2014 you will be able to (and also required) to stone-cold buy health insurance from whoever you […]

The eight-year period of 2000-2008 was the best, wasn’t it? First everyone freaked out about Y2K which ended up not really being very exciting, then the movie Chicken Run came out, but then wasn’t there something kind of bad that happened in 2001? Like maybe some bad El Niño weather or the end of a […]

We are not exactly sure what all of this means, except that America is almost officially bankrupt instead of “bankrupt but in name only.” (Reuters) – The United States probably wouldn’t be able to maintain its prized AAA sovereign ratings status if it suffered even a “technical” default on its debt, Fitch Ratings said on […]

So much for that new civility. [Daily Intel] UPDATE: The correction, which is somehow even worse:

Oh look, Twitter, Sarah Palin is here to tell us that the media is being silly about her pal @beck’s rally. What’s that silly media?

Carly Fiorina is already abusing her lifelong “you can’t make fun of my hair because I had cancer” privileges by savagely mocking the hair of actual senator Barbara Boxer. What’s Carly’s excuse? Oh gosh, she didn’t know those broadcast microphones and video cameras pointed at her were turned on. Watch the shameful video.

Ha ha, just in case you took that whole “Obama will drill the seashores” thing seriously, the U.S. Military is preparing for surplus oil to be gone by 2012 and irreversible global shortages to begin by 2015. That is very soon!

C’mon now, libtards. Ad dollars are running thin these days. Some schlock wants to buy an “assassinate the President” ad? Well, if he’s paying cash… “Warren Times Observer Publisher John Elchert says the ad appeared Thursday. It read, ‘May Obama follow in the steps of Lincoln, Garfield, McKinley and Kennedy!’ The four presidents were all […]

Lawrence Eagleburger served as Secretary of State under George H.W. Bush and is a serious, well-regarded Republican statesman — so it should come as no surprise that he is secretly in the tank for Barack Obama. Eagleburger endorsed John McCain for president, as McCain fondly recalled in a meandering interview with Walter Cronkite this past […]

Ha ha John McCain’s new boyfriend is a terrible media whore! Joe the Plumber has successfully converted his 15 milliseconds of fame into a COUNTRY MUSIC RECORDING CONTRACT and a live televised shotgun wedding on November 4th to Sarah Palin’s sixth baby, “Trotsky,” on top of a melting ice floe.
