A Trimphus For The Conquering Hero

Inaugural Parade.JPEG-0e5aa

Here we are, back at the beginning. Four years ago I wrote an article, Panem Et Circenses On The Potomac, chronicling the epic overindulgence of the raucous coronation of our Lord and Savior King Barack Obama. The 2008 Obama inauguration was such a spectacle of waste and excess that this comparison is not difficult to [...]

This has been a major final quarter of the year for sanity. First President Barack Obama soundly trounced his backwards, flip-flopping corporate raider opponent Mitt Romney, and has taken this mandate to the next level by refusing to extend tax cuts to the wealthiest Americans at the cost of the 99%. Then, in a move [...]

Pat Robertson, the grand poobah of all things wacko-nutso in “mainstream” fundamentalist Christianity, made a scandalous revelation last week. The man who blamed 9/11 on gay people, Hurricane Katrina on American abortion laws and Port-au-Prince’s killer earthquake on an ages-old pact between the Haitians and Satan, was recently confronted with a serious question from (what [...]

Jesse’s Dereliction Of Duty

Jesse Jackson Jr., absentee congressman that won his spot in the U.S. House of Representatives back without even campaigning for it, has resigned his seat, thus ending another chapter in the Chicago Machine’s greedy, back-stabbing, money-grubbing story of political domination. This caps (for now) a political career that can only be considered remarkable because of [...]

Sandy And The Politics of Presidential Leadership

Along with the devastation caused by Hurricane and Superstorm Sandy, the nation is being availed of the opportunity to see an American president acting presidential. Barack Obama took time off of the campaign trail to play the part of president that he sought with rare perseverance during his 2008 iteration. It is striking, to see [...]

Obama’s Unbecoming Presidential Campaign

Who knew the fate of the presidential election would tip on the number of women voting as if their lady parts depend on it? Early on in the presidential race, Barrack Obama’s campaign made the calculation to use young, unmarried, female voters, a group that leans heavily Democratic as a punch card for a second [...]

Jihadists and Fuhrers and Premieres, Oh My!

A New York Times story that the United States and Iran had finally come to an agreement to engage in bilateral talks concerning Iran’s uranium enrichment program has been the talk of the town. Both sides immediately disavowed any knowledge of this clandestine arrangement, of course, and the Times has not given up their source, [...]

Republicans Hope For A Rainy Day

Many months have passed since Mitt Romney became the presumptive Republican Party nominee for president of the United States. Far before that, President Barack Obama and his surrogates were at work defining Romney and the choice that voters will face on Election Day. Yet polls consistently find between five and ten percent of the electorate [...]

The Systematic Federal FOIA Failure

As if we needed another reason to turn the president out of office, Bloomberg News recently released an internal analysis of the Obama administration’s criminally (both in the figurative and literal sense) deficient adherence to federal law. In the wake of endless federal spending scandals and government investment snafus plaguing these last few years, one [...]

Political Contributions by Media Fail Americans

With six weeks until the presidential election, Mitt Romney is fighting an uphill battle against two opponents. Barack Obama is the main opponent, whom by all economic and foreign policy circumstances, should be a paper tiger on Election Day. His second opponent, which for the remainder of the race is increasingly asserting itself as his [...]
