Two Man Crew

scratch your headIn case this whole "Citizens United" thing leaves you scratching your little punkin' head in confusion, here's an example of why it's such an onerous Supreme Court decision.

A group called "Concerned Taxpayers of America" has been running attack ads against Democrats in both Oregon and Maryland. Records show they have $500,000 in the campaign kitty.

The entire half-million came from exactly two people. Daniel G. Schuster Inc., an Owings Mills, Md., concrete firm, gave two donations to the group totaling $300,000 and New York hedge fund executive Robert Mercer gave the group $200,000.

Now, how much money do you have to spend on campaign ads?

This sort of thing was illegal until this year. And if the Democrats don't gain control of the Senate then the buying of elections by the rich is the new norm.


Just for grins I ran Fox News' slogan "Fair and Balanced" through an anagram maker. Here are the most entertaining results:

A Rand fiend cabal.

Banal, candid fear.

I love technology.



Rally To Restore Sanity Comes Home!

Rally your ass off!

wanted, fervently, to attend the Rally to Restore Sanity rally this coming 30th of October, but three days, minimum, away from the office wasn't in the cards for me.

So I was elated to hear that the rally has metastacized, in a good way, and is now in almost every state in the union. In addition, several foreign sites are hosting their own rally, too.

The nearest rally to me is in Austin, Texas and currently there are about 3500 RSVPs. (Rumors that a Dallas rally is in the offing, too) But the word is spreading and the numbers are growing. Share this info with a friend or two, won't you?

To find the rally location nearest you go to

This is good news to a lot of people but, seriously, if you can make the Washington, D.C. event then please, by all means, go. Tell 'em Lefty sent ya.

Wife: "
Your constant whining about Citizens United is driving me crazy. When will you get it through your thick head that there are some things money just can't...

TV: "Won't you please? Won't you please? Please won't you be... my neighbor? Except minorities, gays, Muslims and poor people."

Wife: "All righty then. If you need me I'll be curled in a fetal for, ohhh, the next fifty years or so."
