Ann Coulter’s Legacy

We are tempted to say that Ann Coulter‘s legacy is her unflinching support of bigotry.

After Ms. Coulter tweeted that President Obama is a “retard,” Barbara decided to draw a Coulter cartoon and asked our facebook friends for a suggestion. One of them, to whom this Art-itorial is dedicated, replied, “You could draw a [steaming] pile of crap and put long blonde hair on it,” and the result is what you see above.… [Read more]

Avenue of the Plutocrats

In case you didn’t know, Plutocracy is a word coined in the seventeenth century to describe oligarchic rule by the wealthy and is a combination of the Greek words “ploutos” (πλοῦτος), meaning “wealth” and “kratos” (κράτος), meaning “domination”.… [Read more]

Tagg Romney — Bloodthirsty.

We’ve all read that Taggart Romney, whilst being interviewed on the radio, quipped that he’d like to take a swing at President Obama for claiming that his father, Mitt, lied when he, um, lied.

And we all know that Tagg will probably never get the chance, what with the Secret Service and all. But there is something he can do to throw a figurative punch — he could simply buy an electronic voting machine company and rig the vote in his father’s favor.… [Read more]

Get There Early!

What’s this? Big Bird is on a bread line? We all know that Mitt Romney, during the first Presidential debate of this campaign season, promised to cut all funding for Public Broadcasting, which only amounts to a drop in the bucket — and that he would greatly increase defense spending, which is not only not a drop in the bucket, but comprises the majority of the bucket’s contents.… [Read more]

Joe Biden — Dazzling!

Hey, Joe!  Your smile is so dazzling that the right wing is picking on you for it.

But we think it’s great. There are many, many ways to react outwardly to intentional lying. You could have rolled your eyes, looked to the sky or frowned with anger. But you smiled, which looks a whole lot better, and unless the person you’re smiling at is feeling terribly guilty, it shouldn’t be read as an insult.… [Read more]

Time to Hang it Up.

The great and venerable Jim Lehrer has already declared that he’s hanging-up his gloves and will moderate no more Presidential debates after this year. Of course, some blame for the unruly fiasco that was this year’s first Presidential debate can be shared with President Obama. 

We all saw Mitt Romney ride roughshod over not only the well-specified rules of this particular debate, but over the truth as well.… [Read more]

Fight Back!

Popular opinion is that President Obama lost the first presidential debate to Mitt Romney. Not his finest 90 minutes. The fact checkers know that Mitt switched many of his prior positions (OK, he lied) — so that was even more reason that the President could have delivered a few blows. The truth would have hurt.

The art editorial below is from the archives; it was drawn when the GOP took over Congress during the midterm elections.… [Read more]

Count Me In.

How dare you threaten PBS, Mitt Romney?!

Onion Soup and Ahmadinejad

I don’t think that even the newshounds among us would remember how to pronounce this man’s name had it not been for Katie Couric’s invention of the mnemonic, “I’m a Dinner Jacket” when she was at CBS.

No one who hears this will ever forget how to pronounce his name, but for those of us who have forgotten, Ahmadinejad, the world’s most infamous Holocaust denier, has been the President of Iran since 2005 and, if he has his way, it will be an office for life as he seems to be able to get himself re-elected without sufficient votes.… [Read more]

Be Prepared.

For a few weeks now, we’ve been reading that influential right-wing pundits and leaders are mumbling about armed rebellion assuming when President Obama is re-elected.

There’s also some speculation that gun sales will skyrocket for, despite a lack of emphasis on the issue of gun ownership on the part of the Obama administration, the National Rifle Association has been trying to convince the American people that President Obama will shortly be confiscating their guns.… [Read more]
