    Here’s a bit of good news: California’s economy is improving! Of course it is not true and this pronouncement comes from a liberal think tank, but hey it sounds so good doesn’t it? What’s laughable is that The Rockefeller Foundation and Yale professor Jacob Hacker claim this “improvement” is proven by the fact that the percentage of California’s families reporting a major economic loss last year dropped by 1.4% which is a whole .10% better than the national average. The fact that California is so economically distressed and has been for so long that there are few families left to...

    Icon. Maverick. Liberal. Career politician. U.S. Sen. Russ Feingold has been called many things during his time in the spotlight. But after nearly 30 years in politics, the junior senator from Wisconsin is coming home a private citizen. When the final gavel falls on the 111th Congress, Feingold will be unemployed — the victim of an angry electorate bent on change in Washington, D.C.

    Reuters newswire service recently published a story reporting that accused swindler Allen Stanford has been moved to a federal lockup facility in downtown Houston in order "to be closer to his attorneys." In fact in a fairly long story as wire copy goes, Reuters reports all sorts of details of Stanford's alleged financial crimes and current status. There is only one little detail that Reuters seems to have forgotten to report. Allen Stanford was a major fundraiser and lobbyists for some of the biggest Democrats in the country. There isn't a single mention, for instance, that Stanford lobbied Congress for...
  • Editorial: ACORN harvests its bad seeds [so many nuts, so little time] [Rats running scared]

    The increasingly ironically named Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now, better known as ACORN, might as well take down its shingle. Turns out ACORN itself is in dire need of reforming. Now, however, the organization's reputation is so shot that only those who think their particular political side can do absolutely no wrong are blinded enough to support the organization, whose claims that ACORN's troubles are all due to a few misguided employees and a concerted attack by the far right sound increasingly hollow and desperate. The left-leaning group came under fire last year in the presidential campaign when...
  • Sen. Harry Reid is GOP target in 2010 election ["one of Capitol Hill's wiliest politicians"]

    BY ERICA WERNER and KATHLEEN HENNESSEY WASHINGTON (AP) — Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is among Republicans' biggest targets in 2010, but a GOP takedown is hardly a guarantee. As Reid, 69, prepares to seek a fifth term, analysts say the Senate's leading Democratic voice has turned off some voters in libertarian-leaning Nevada and undercut his slogan from campaigns past: "Harry Reid, Independent like Nevada." Last week, the National Republican Senatorial Committee began airing its first critical ad against Reid, lambasting him as a "super-spending partisan." Committee spokesman Brian Walsh promised that Reid would have "a very competitive race on...

    The decision on granting a hearing challenging President-elect Barack Obama's U.S. citizenship is still pending. The "Washington Times" reports that the U.S. Supreme Court held a private conference Friday morning to discuss whether to take up a lawsuit but it was not on the list of court orders for the day. According to the "Times" a Supreme Court spokesman said the decision to hear the case will most likely be announced next week.
  • ZOT! - An Open Letter from Donald to Saddam

    Dear Saddam, Remember when we first met on that magic night in Baghdad in 1983? You were gassing those wacky Iranians with chemical weapons and having a grand old time, but Ronnie and I just said hey, 'dictators will be dictators' - know what I mean?!! Hahaha. It's a good thing we sold you all those weapons and military equipment that you used in crushing your own people. Lord knows what might have happened if we hadn't stepped in to help you out. What a time it was too! We sold you all kinds of fun things - anthrax, VX...
