Rubbernecking the disaster of the 2008 election: the best of Train Wreck Politics

January 21st, 2009 · 3 Comments

So in case it isn’t obvious by the two-month hiatus, Train Wreck Politics has pulled into the station.  Watching the inauguration yesterday (from the comfort of my couch) was surreal.  If a single day could speak to how great a country America really is, there’s June 6, 1944, there’s September 11, 2001, and now we have [...]

I’m not dead

September 10th, 2008 · No Comments

Andrew Sullivan’s blog goes offline for one day, and he gets inundated with messages of concern.  My blog goes offline for four months and I have yet to receive a single e-mail.  Though a friend did ask me a few weeks ago, “Hey, what happened to your blog?”  So that made me feel special. Anyway, [...]

So I guess they kicked me off of Digg

February 26th, 2008 · 1 Comment

Yesterday, I noticed I was having trouble with my Digg account, which is where I usually go to submit stories and see what’s hot in the blogosphere.  The site would let me log in, but then whenever I tried to click another link, it would automatically log me out.  It kept doing this over and over, and I [...]

Unintended consequences

February 10th, 2008 · No Comments

Commenter Tinu notices some unintended blowback from yesterday’s Ann Coulter offensive. I agree with your article, but what’s weird is that it turned your Google AdSense block into an Ann Coulter commercial. Which is why even the slightest mention of She We Do Not Speak Of is too much.  Just by telling HuffPo to stop giving her free advertising, I wound up giving her [...]

Off the tracks: Stevie Wonder tumbles, Clinton coughing fit

February 5th, 2008 · No Comments

Less than an hour to go before the polls close and the tension is palpable. But while you wait, here’s two videos of moments this week where the Obama and Clinton campaigns both went a little off the tracks.  Neither is particularly funny, but both fit our trainwreck theme.  You can’t not watch. Stevie Wonder tumbles at Obama [...]

Comment of the day

February 5th, 2008 · No Comments

Commenter Republican Soldier In Iraq thought I was a bit too hard yesterday on Mitt Romney and his generic Super Bowl hat: Wow. This website often has very humorous articles about the political realm, but I feel that anyone who is remotely aware of how difficult it is for a politician to gain support, would [...]

Correction, “Republican Debate Rankings, 1/30″

February 1st, 2008 · No Comments

Commenter Mike– who gets the distinguished honor of being the first person to leave a non-spam comment here at TWP– caught a mistake in my Republican Debate Rankings.  I stated: Mike Huckabee – Scored points for honesty by being the only candidate to note that Americans are worse off now than they were eight years ago [...]

TrainWreck Politics goes online

January 29th, 2008 · No Comments

Oh, God, another political blog?  What’s the point? Because as disappointed as I am with the mainstream media, I’m also disappointed at the way certain things slip through the cracks of the blogosphere as well.  I’ve gritted my teeth and tolerated it for almost a year now (yeah, “gritted” is a word– I checked), but the whirlwind of events over [...]
