Rush Limbaugh plays race card on Powell’s Obama endorsement

October 19th, 2008 · 1 Comment

Politico’s Jonathan Martin reports on Limbaugh’s latest display of bigotry: Rush Limbaugh said Colin Powell’s decision to get behind Barack Obama appeared to be very much tied to Obama’s status as the first African-American with a chance to become president. “Secretary Powell says his endorsement is not about race,” Limbaugh wrote in an e-mail. “OK, fine. I am now researching [...]

Sarah Palin not greeted as liberator at hockey game in Philly

October 13th, 2008 · 1 Comment

Whichever McCain staffer thought up the idea of sending Sarah Palin to a hockey game in Philly to drop the puck should be fired. No questions asked, no excuses. This might have been the easiest call in sports/politics history. I mean, in the middle of a heated campaign, you’re sending a Republican with sky-high negatives, [...]

April 9th, 2008 · No Comments

Why Mitt Romney will never be president (Super Bowl edition)

February 4th, 2008 · 1 Comment

Focus on the hat.  This guy was the governor of Massachusetts for four years and doesn’t have the balls to wear a Patriots hat during the Super Bowl?  How big a panderer do you have to be to wear that lame, generic Super Bowl merchandise?  Worst of all, it’s not like he even has a chance to win in [...]

Judgment and vision

February 4th, 2008 · No Comments

I missed the score, but got the margin of victory exactly right: I do know that for all 18 games this season, anyone who picked against the Patriots was wrong.  But I also know that my mother told me, “Cheaters never win.”  So considering the fact that the Giants matchup as well as anyone with the [...]

Super Bowl XLII predictions

February 1st, 2008 · No Comments

The only guarantee I can confidently make for this Sunday is that Joe Buck’s man-crush on Tom Brady will force me to mute the volume midway through the first quarter.  After that, all I have is guesses.  I do know that for all 18 games this season, anyone who picked against the Patriots was wrong.  [...]
