1 of 4 Dictators Likes Hillary for Pres

As of today we can move Fidel Castro into the I heart Hillary column for the Presidential race. That's a ringing endorsement from a man who has ordered the deaths of countless Cubans and nearly started an all out nuclear war between the U.S. and the old Soviet Union.

Is the Capitol Covered in Lead Paint?

When it rains it pours and I don't think we can blame it on global warming. Today Alberto Gonzales was either fired or resigned. I really don't care at this point because his effectiveness at being anything was over months ago.

After returning home not more than 10 minutes into Hardball, yeah I watch Hardball, they broke the story of Sen. Larry Craig (yes he's Republican) was apparently busted in a men's bathroom doing something I really don't want know the details in any form.

Lets add Craig to the growing list of GOP idiots (see Roger Stone), Perverts (see Foley) and utter morons (see Gonzales or Brown) of people that need to be found out and run out of the Republican party and not asked to return.

Really, what could be the next GOP scandal? Could it be that a GOP politician will get busted on Dateline's "To Catch a Predator" show or could it be a congressman running a international drug ring out of his office?

These sleazy and just plain stupid politicians have to go before they all but destroy the party's already slim chances for a victory next year.

Note to World Leaders: Keep Your Shirts On

Whilst cruising the net I thought I had stumbled onto a web page of ill repute.

Now I am savvy enough that there is a severe difference between and, but I was confused on what I thought should have been a news site (Click Here) and (Here).

Apparently this must be a new fad with leaders around the world. Go out to some nature preserve, take off your shirt and do something manly like fishing, boating or lumberjacking.

Now maybe these guys were taking a cue from Obama (Click Here) or they were just exercising their inner metro for a day. Whatever the reason I wish it would stop. Pasty white and generally squishy politicians do not make good runway models. I don't need or want to see the likes of Stephen Harper, Tony Blair, or Kim Jun Il prancing around in Speedos.

So I plead to the leaders of world. Please stop blinding us and keep your shirts on!

How Stupid Can You Be?

If you think that you can call an 83 year old man and leave a venomous voicemail recording regarding his son (who happens to be a Governor) you are Stupid with a capital "S".

Roger Stone, a highly placed and prominent GOP affiliated consultant (you can roll your eyes at this point.) Did just that with the father of New York Gov. Elliot Spitzer.

Click Here for the recording.

Apparently Mr. Stone must have played with lead painted toys in the past to actually think this was a good idea. What is worse is that Stone said someone must have broken in to his home and made the call to frame him.

As much as I like to use democrats for verbal punching bags, I can't ignore the rabid stupidity of what this guy did.

Here are a few hints for all of you wana be political wonks out there:

  1. Tape recorders and politics do not mix!
  2. Don't talk trash to someone's parents.
  3. Don't say, "I was framed!" when you get caught for being stupid.

If you follow these few rules and don't do anything else that can be construed as remarkably stupid, you can play in the political sandbox.

Why the Hiatus?

If the 3 to 5 people that read this blog are wondering why I have not posted anything in the last month well here is the reason.

A couple of months ago I found out that I will be having my first child and I have been busy rearranging our condo to accommodate the arrival of the little one. On top of that I have been taking summer classes at the local CC (that is community college for those of you in the Ivy league.)

Don't fret I will be mashing out some blogs shortly.
