Hunter S. Thompson used to say that elections are the Super Bowl for political junkies.

Many have asked what I think will happen to Michael Richards after the Laugh Factory incident last Fri. night… This is America, he’ll make an excellent Minority Whip…
Tom Delay announced that he will not seek re-election. I worked as an interpreter for the Deaf. I will now use those skills for a comedic premise. Tom Delay said: “I refuse to allow liberal Democrats an opportunity to steal this seat with a negative, personal campaign.” Meaning: “I’ve been indicted.” Tom Delay said: “I… Continue reading
Desperation: Not just for housewives anymore… It’s Saddam’s fault there is sectarian violence today in Iraq. He used violence to exacerbate sectarian divisions. Yes. That’s right.
