Fearless prediction: In the coming months, the president, his cronies, and his servile press will blame everything from meteors to male pattern baldness on the “Sequester.”  Frankly, I welcome the change.  Blaming Bush and Global Warming used to be funny, but after four years of it, that’s just tiresome.  With the Sequester, I look forward […]

Since November 7th past, there has been no end of analysis, criticism and navel-gazing by everyone on the right as to how & why we lost to the worst president in a century, perhaps ever.  Beating a shallow, utterly narcissistic, blatantly dishonest president during the worst economy in 70 years seemed like a slam-dunk.  There […]
