As for the subject line which is a rephrasing of one of Bill Clinton’s presidential campaigns, Republicans, please feel free to substitute the “N” word of your choice, you know, that one you use while you’re talking among your friends once you’ve made sure that there are no recording devices around.
For the rest of those of you in America that might think all of the political bullshit going on has anything to do with the economy, like Obamacare, government spending, taxes, etc…., well, read the subject line and think again.
Think instead of Mitch McConnell (R-Ky-Jelly), that paragon of “right” thinking who made it his stated goal to make Barack Obama a one term president.
O.k, so it was an epic fail on that one.
However, the rest of the party of regression, including the Tea Party part that travels to Congress on a short yellow bus, never got the word and have taken up McConnell’s jihad in their attempt to not allow anything Obama does to go unchallenged.
Think about all of that as our country circles the bowl, and remember who to thank in the 2014 elections….

After dealing with a range of unhappy Los Angeles area traffic situations lately, I have to wonder which came first, the asshole or the pickup truck.
What I’m actually asking is, are people who are natural born assholes (by easy and clear definition) predisposed to buy pickup trucks, or does the act of buying a pickup truck convert an otherwise normal person into a raging asshole?
And just to ramp up the discussion, I myself have experiential experience * that indicates to me that the incidence level of asshole created traffic danger events is (at least) multiplied by a factor of 10 when the observed pickup truck is red. Moreover, for some reason you can double that when it’s also one of the dual rear wheel variety.
* Your milage may vary

The Al-Jazeera News network has replaced Current TV with 24 hours of news each day, news they claim will not have a pro Arab world agenda. To prove that this is true they’ve hired a few Jewish newscasters to work on staff, these will be reporters who should be easy to spot because they’ll each be wearing a bright yellow arm band and have a banner superimposed over their desk that says “Arbeit Macht Frei”.
Funeral plans for the former “Doors” keyboardist Ray Manzarek have been delayed until his friends and family can decide if they should respect those years of his not so subtle message to “Light My Fire” and go the cremation route, or just bury him.
And lest we forget…….
Leonard Marsh, the man who was one of the creators of the drink “Snapple” has died. At his funeral, many of his family and friends quietly waited in line to stand by his body one last time and pay their last respects, but some just wanted to read the funny stuff that was printed on the inside of his coffin lid.
Honestly now, what’s with the big deal about same sex marriage?
I’ve been married for over ten years and for most of that time, once a week as sure as the sun rises in the East it’s always the same sex.
Now for something completely different, once again…..
As I always do this time of year when my birthday nears, I’ve been doing an assessment on the status of my corporeal being, sadly it’s not all good news.
In the previous year I’ve gained about three pounds (this would also describe my bank account if I was in England, and as most people in the world, I’d be ignoring the Euro).
For my age I still have a lot of hair on my head, but sadly it seems to have migrated to the inside of my ears and nose.
The great but for the most part unpopulated state of North Dakota has banned abortions as soon as a heart beat can be detected.
Progressives, meaning those of us who choose to live in the 21st Century, may launch a counter measure, one that would require abortions when no brain wave activity can be detected.
This idea is causing concern among republicans since it could allow certain of their congress members to be subject to late term abortions.
You know, “Very Late Term” abortions might even be an appropriate description for some in office who are near to the age of collecting retirement benefits.
People who were worried about the effort to be the next pope by former Los Angeles Archbishop Roger Mahony will now have less to worry about. Vatican security guards have reported that they’ve taken his campaign manager Karl Rove into custody and freed dozens of altar boys who were being held captive in his hotel room.
In a related story, Mahony has suggested a new way for priests to be more closely connected with those altar boys who sometimes, literally, must give their all to their superiors. Starting next Easter, the boys will play “Hide the host”, putting it somewhere in their robes, and then a blindfolded priest will be given 24 hours to find it.
And this just in, what was thought to be the results of a first vote by the cardinals to pick a new pope turned out to be just a non-connected huge puff of smoke. The source became clear when a tour bus owned by Willy Nelson and one that belonged to Snoop Dogg were found parked side by side in the Vatican’s parking lot. So, it might be taken by some as sort of a signal from a much higher source.
