Gone Fishin'

rush limbaughPresident Obama is taking some time off for a well-deserved vacation at Martha's Vineyard and the way the bellowing baboons in the right-wing media are reacting you'd think they'd caught him skeet-shooting pandas in the cement pond out back of th' White House.

Let me take a moment to put this into perspective...

So far Mr. Obama has taken just 70 vacation days. By this point in George W. Bush's first term in office the little quisling had taken 225 vacation days. All while America was under attack, in dire financial straits, one war was under way, and another was being planned.

So, seriously, right-wing assholes, shut the hell up! We'll ask you if we need anything from you... which we don't.


the goddessRachel Maddow and Keith Olbermann are my fave TV news analysts, but my cherished, can't-miss-a-show radio personality and political debunker is Randi Rhodes.

I've said it before and I'll say it again, this is the brightest human I've ever encountered. She is always WAY ahead of the curve when it comes to the body politic.

Unlike most right-wing call-in shows she does not screen her calls so everybody is welcome to join the conversation, but heaven help the fool for she does not suffer them gladly.

If you really want to know more about what's going on in this country, listen to Randi. She's live and streamable Monday-Friday from 2-5 PM CST.


While writing jokes for this past Wednesday's Raging Pencils comic, which apparently no one liked except little old me, I ended up with a boat-load of similar gags that ridiculed the same deeply held belief. So rather than unload one more crummy joke on you, my beloved readers, I thought I'd scattershot the whole wad of them at once and hope something sticks.

And it's B&W because I don't have a free week to color it, so use your fevered little imaginations.



Republican Job Creation Update

john boehner"We're going to have a relentless focus on creating jobs." - John Boehner, February 10, 2011.

The following is #68 in a list of Republican job creation activities since they gained control of the House in 2011. None, sad to say, have yet to result in one, single new job.

(68) 8-19-2011: Hey, look! Good old Darrell Issa, Republican, has hired a guy named Peter Haller to help effect new regulations for banks like Goldman Sachs. Unfortunately, Mr. Heller used to be called Peter Simonyi when he was a vice president for (wait for it) Goldman Sachs. Oh, you can bet you boots there's nothing underhanded about hiding behind another name. Not a thing. Nada. Zip. Zero.

Uh boy.


Dump Fox News

Fox News Lies!And what manner of lie is Fox News spewing today? They're blaming Mr. Obama for a child-poverty report that spanned George Bush's term in office.
