Tortured Response

Andrew Sullivan has a must read rant on Obama’s foot dragging on the Senate Intelligence Committee report on torture. As some of you know, Sullivan is a conservative, but he is gay and also likes Obama. But he has had enough. Basically, his point is that the well documented use of torture by the US […]

Jon Stewart on the Shutdown

Awesome quote: In response to the new Republican talking point that “the President will negotiate with the Iranians, but not with Republicans”. Jon responds “If it turns out that president Barack Obama can make a deal with the most intransigent, hard-line, unreasonable, totalitarian Mullahs in the world, but not with Republicans, maybe he’s not the […]

Romnesia

© Ruben Bolling My favorite is “Diarrhyan”, but mostly because I had to say it out loud before I got the joke. After that, I got “HemorRoves” much more quickly.

Turn to the Right?

© Tom Toles Did the first presidential debate really change things that dramatically? Or is the media jumping on this in order to keep the horse race close and attract election-weary viewers? Did Joe Biden’s debate performance stop the Democratic freak out? Or at least slow it down?

International Talk Like a Pirate Day

As I’m sure all of my readers are aware, today is International Talk Like a Pirate Day. How is this political? Because the Obama campaign just tweeted “Arrr you in?” with this photo:

Secretary of Explaining Stuff?

While out campaigning this week, Obama made repeated references to the outstanding speech given by Bill Clinton at the Democratic convention. My favorite thing Obama said about Clinton: Somebody e-mailed me after his speech — they said, you need to appoint him secretary of explaining stuff … That was pretty good. I like that … […]

It Could Have Been Worse!

Larry David argues that even if you aren’t better off than you were four years ago, at least you weren’t hit by an asteroid! It is interesting to see how people react to this video. Is Stewart trying to be balanced? Is he making fun of people’s attitudes toward Obama? Are people afraid of criticism […]

I fully admit that this is blatantly political, but he is just so darned cute:

It’s All Obama’s Fault

© Nick Anderson This would be even funnier if it weren’t so true. I’ve been reading a few conservative blogs lately, and they are literally unbelievable.

The Bane of Barackman

© Ruben Bolling The funny thing is that everyone pretty much knows what the Republicans are trying to do, but for some reason they keep voting for them. Is money really that powerful that it can convince people to vote not only against their own interests, but against the interests of their own country?

Will the Real Karl Rove Please Shut Up?

Today on Fox News, Karl Rove complained about Obama’s use of executive privilege over a set of Department of Justice internal documents, calling it an “overreach” and saying “I’m not certain that that’s what the Founders thought about when they talked about executive privilege.” Rove conveniently forgot that the very first time Bush invoked executive […]

You Can’t Touch That!

© Jim Morin The actual quote was from Laura Ingraham’s radio show. She asked Romney if Obama’s claim that the economy is getting better is true. Romney replied: Well of course it’s getting better. The economy always gets better after the recession. There’s always a recovery. There’s never been a time anywhere in the world […]

Showdown

It looks like we will have a showdown in the near future. The White House has stated, as clear as they can, that Obama will not support an extension of the Bush Era tax cuts for Americans making more than $250,000 a year. Period. And Republicans have sworn to not “raise” taxes, even if it […]
