Rick Santorum’s Clueless Message Stomps Mitt Romney’s Electability

Santorum surges in GOP races. My local newspaper headline pretty much captured the flavor of yesterday’s round of two Republican Presidential caucuses and one non-binding primary.

It was definitely the flaming heterosexual’s day in the sun, though in the future there will be many more of those hotter than normal sunny days in all sections of the U.S. with our escalating warming of the planet. Santorum is, of course, a vehement climate denier. Speaking in tongues that only the evangelical crowd could understand, he told a Colorado audience the day before the vote that global warming was part of a scientific plot to….”even more greatly control your life.” An estimated 10-15% of the scientific community agrees with him.

Johnson, Jr., graduate of Columbia College and Columbia University's School of Law and has served them as a legal propagandist since 1997.

The Faux Hotties of FOX News

A Christian watchdog group complained in 2007 that they "see shorter skirts on the women of Fox News than...on the prostitutes being arrested on cop shows." The thighs and breasts remain. The Family Values network? No, more of a fund-raising network now - and sex sells.

Palin Drama: Live Mic Left On, Reporters Call Palin “Dumb”

Sarah Palin CSU speech prior to live mic debacle

OK, people. I tweeted Palin's CSU Stanislaus speech tonight so you wouldn't have to listen.

Obama Shines While Jabbing Birthers and Palin at WH Correspondents Dinner

President Barack Obama outdid Leno tonight at the 2010 White House Correspondents Dinner, aka #Nerdprom. There were lots of jokes about his approval ratings, Joe Biden, Mitt Romney and Rahm Emanuel.
