Looking for a specific Rage Comic and/or Rant and can't find it?

jimmy duranteNo, this will not be the last Mitt Romney sports metaphor comic you'll see before the election is all said and done. As Da Schnozz used to say "I got a million of 'em!"

Too bad they all suck, though.


texas secessionI got to recollecting the other day about the "Texas secession" dust-up that gripped the Lone Star State not so long ago. In the view of most folks it was just the Texas Tea Party's intolerant over-reaction to a black president. But I think, more than anything, it was the Republicans looking into their crystal demographic balls and seeing Texas becoming a dependably blue state within this decade, some say as soon as 2016, and all due to the burgeoning hispanic population.

Such a thing would play havoc with future GOP chances for president as Texas has 38 electoral votes in play. That could be another reason we're hearing a smidgen of "Get rid of the Electoral College"


clapperSaturday morning I was out for a walk and passed by a local garage sale from which I bought a brand-new-and-in-the-box Clapper. ("Clap on! Clap off! The Clapper!") That evening I took it with me to Beloved Girlfriend's house and surreptitiously connected it to a lamp in the media room.

After dinner we retreated to watch a recent anime find and as we entered the media room I said "Let me get the light for you, honey" and clapped my hands twice.

The light came on.

Now, most people know about the Clapper but few suspect that an intimate acquaintance will sneak one into your house and connect it to your lamps. So the rapid succession of expressions that flashed across BG's face were worth every penny of the two bucks I spent on the thing. It went from "What the hell?" to "How did he do that?" to
"Oh, crap! It's a Clapper!"

Much laughter ensued.

We kept it connected all evening and found that it tended to react to quick bursts of laughter in the same way it reacts to hand claps. It also turns off when you toss a couple of anglo-saxonisms its way, too. That was the most fun of all.


are you registered to vote?Will you be voting absentee this November but don't know what to do about it?

Then check out the Long Distance Voter. Not only can you register to vote, and verify your registration, you can also request an absentee ballot.

Oh, That Mitt.

michelle obamaRomney blames Obama for his own outsourcing of jobs to China.


Mittens, in a clearly desperation move, suggests that Obama is planning to remove any mention of god from our money. Oh, if it were only true.

What about Paul "Marathon Man" Ryan? He's backpeddling frantically denying voting for something he voted for. In this case it's defense cuts.


As for Ann Romney, it seems she wasn't being entirely truthful at the RNC when she spoke about how tough she and Mitt had it as young married folk (No kidding!) . In her own words "Our struggles have not been financial."


And, finally, 11,000 show up to see Barack Obama in Florida, while only a few hundred show up to see Mr. Romney in Virginia.

Mitt Romney: "Before we begin the tipping-off you ungainly brutes should know that, some time ago, I invested heavily in your team and so was able to force management into signing too many big-name players. Your team is now bankrupt, you've all been sold to Oscar Mayer, and I've got your pensions. I win."
