Here are some quotes from this TPM story: “He’s ignoring the Constitution, trying to become a dictator and make us dependent on the government,” he said. “I don’t think a good portion of America realizes what he’s doing — if they did he’d lose in a landslide.” He’s black. Just look, black! “This is really [...]

Fox sux

Mike Huckabee just told me on my TV that we should postpone the election by 4 or 5 days, to give McCain a chance to catch up. Or at least, have the Democrats vote then. Of course, Newt Gingrich had just worked a loonie-left jab into a somber declaration of respect for Obama’s grandma.

Mitt, you shit

If America really wants to change, it’s time to look for the sun in the west, because it’s about to rise and shine from Arizona and Alaska. Ha ha ha, nice Reagan dogwhistle, Mitt. Hey, what’s wester than Arizona and just about as westy as Alaska? That’s right; Hawaii, birthplace of presidential candidate Barack Obama. [...]

What has happened to the meaning of cynical? I’ve always understood it to mean that someone distrusts the apparently pure motives of others. And the definitions I can find agree. But lately, more and more, I’ve seen it used to describe people who truly operate under those motives that real cynics ascribe to them. That’s [...]
