Edwards Slams Obama/Clinton

By D. E. Carson, published on Jan 24, 2008

If you saw last Saturday’s Myrtle Beach debate among the three Democratic contenders, you saw Shrillary Rotten Clownton and Barack Hussein Osama-bama fighting like two-year-olds. There was more “he said”, “she said” in that hour than in a month’s worth of daytime soaps! The best line of the evening was when John Edwards said that he was, “trying to remind everyone that there are three candidates” on that stage. Edwards reiterated his position as the most mature candidate of the Democrats last night on David Letterman’s Late Show when... (more)

Thompson Withdraws From Race

By D. E. Carson, published on Jan 23, 2008

In a very short but in his to-the-point manner, former senator Fred Thompson withdrew his candidacy from the race for the White House today.

“Today I have withdrawn my candidacy for President of the United States. I hope that my country and my party have benefited from our having made this effort. Jeri and I will always be grateful for the encouragement and friendship of so many wonderful people.” -- Official statement from Fred Thompson, from his website.

The loss of Fred Thompson in the Republican race means there is no decent choice for the... (more)

The Government Is Really Broken

By D. E. Carson, published on Jan 14, 2008

An interesting news item came across my desk the other day. It seems that the FBI, that top-notch, envy-of-the-world law-enforcement agency of the United States, can’t seem to even pay its phone bills. The Inspector General of the United States audited the Justice Department and discovered that the Friggin’ Band of Idiots can’t even manage its own money – losing $25,000 to an agent who siphoned money for her personal use and not bothering to pay some 990 past due telephone bills which resulted in many wire taps being lost as well as other means of communicating... (more)

Don't Discount Her Majesty's Chutzpah

By D. E. Carson, published on Jan 9, 2008

Yesterday, Democratic "Presidential Hopeful" Hillary Clinton almost broke down into tears while addressing supporters in a restaurant on the eve of the New Hampshire primary. Twenty-four hours later, she is standing strong, like a jellyfish in a storm saying, “We spoke from our hearts and I am so gratified that you responded.”

Sorry, ma’am, it takes more than a few tears to convince me that you have America’s best interests at heart. In fact, last night, was all show and your little act accomplished exactly what it intended. It got enough people in New Hampshire to feel sorry for you... (more)

One Dps Down...one To Go

By D. E. Carson, published on Jan 8, 2008

I was going to recite a list of Johnny Carson-esque jokes about Her Majesty Senator Clinton’s public display of emotion today, but as I began to write, I was suddenly knocked for a tangent. The DPS I (aka the 2008 Golden Globe Awards dinner sponsored by the Hollywood Foreign Press) has been cancelled due to the WGA strike. Looks like LA’s homeless won’t be dining at the Beverly Hilton Dumpster this year.

Nikki Blonski, who was nominated for her role in the movie Hairspray, was shown on Entertainment Tonight whining about how she’s not going to get to... (more)

Iowa Tough On Coronation

By D. E. Carson, published on Jan 6, 2008

It is no secret that Senator Hillary Clinton came into the 2008 presidential race believing that she would win every state – effectively establishing her coronation as the Democrat’s far and away choice for president.

Iowa saw things a little bit different.

In a state whose black population amounts to only about 2%, Senator Barack Obama took a very commanding lead of the Iowa caucus, with John Edwards holding on to the number two spot leaving Senator Clinton to lick her wounds and wonder what... (more)

No Trial For Brandy - Beware of Lawsuit

By D. E. Carson, published on Dec 29, 2007

In December 2006, Brandy Norwood, known to her fans as simply Brandy had her life turned almost upside down. While driving in Los Angeles freeway the Land Rover being driven by Brandy collided with another vehicle. The impact was enough that the driver of the other vehicle, Awatef Aboudihaj, 38, was killed. According to reports by members of the California Gestapo – er – Highway Patrol, the singer was at fault and deserved to be tried for misdemeanor vehicular manslaughter – a charge that could have landed the singer/actor in jail for several years. Today, however, the Los Angeles city... (more)

Ungrateful!

By D. E. Carson, published on Dec 28, 2007

I like to read Reader’s Digest. It’s a very informative magazine that gives me exactly what I want – the meat and potatoes of a book that I might not otherwise have time to pick up and read. Additionally, it gives me funny things at which to laugh. But the January 2008 issue gave me something else to think about. It gave me the opportunity to think about how flat rude some people can be. Author Mary Roach, who writes regularly for the Digest, told how a couple of strange envelopes appeared at her home. These innocuous-looking envelopes contained Christmas Cards which Mrs. Roach had... (more)

Newsome Dishes on Coke

By D. E. Carson, published on Dec 21, 2007

San Francisco Mayor, Gavin Newsome has been accurately described by Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly as the Pinhead of the Year. Mayor Newsome has actually proposed placing a tax on establishments that sell Coca-Cola, Pepsi and other popular soft drinks claiming that the high fructose corn syrup is responsible for obesity in San Francisco. Mayor Newsome believes that this tax will be useful in off-setting the rising health care costs of those who are obese. Mayor Newsome is about as big a moron as they come. Shepard Smith of the Fox Report interviewed Deborah King, a so-called social consciousness... (more)

You're Fired... Have a Nice Day

By D. E. Carson, published on Dec 2, 2007

Hollywood writers are on strike, and have been since Nov. 5. The general reaction should be, “yeah, so?” For the most part that seems to be the case. However, according to the Reuters News Service, Jay Leno all but promised his staff on The Tonight Show that they would not have to worry about their financial situation during the strike. Seems Leno forgot that he is just another employee of one of the largest companies in the world – General Electric, who owns NBC, and in turn owns The Tonight Show. NBC has sent letters to the non-writing staff of The Tonight Show and Late Night with... (more)
