Karma, thy name is Bitch

Barack Obama lost the election yesterday. He sowed the seeds of his destruction himself many months ago, when he decided to exploit sexism and misogyny in his quest to defeat Hillary. Now John McCain will reap the harvest. Back in June, BDBlue at Corrente wrote: I have long believed the most dangerous thing about this […]

The New Democratic Party (NDP) is forming

This is a ground-shifting, earth-quaking year in American politics, though not in the way any of us expected. I don’t know what will come of the various initiatives popping up here and there, but I know that nothing will ever be the same again. Just got this in the mail from Murphy of PumaPAC; I […]

I knew it! I knew it! I knew it!

I’ve been telling my mother for a month that McCain would pick a woman. “Governor Palin of Alaska. I’ll just bet you.” Every time I would say that my mother would just roll her eyes. I knew it. I knew he would pick Palin. Goddamn, that old buzzard McCain is not so dumb after all. […]

Because, you know, it’s not Obama. And if you don’t have time to slog through the 500-page Caucus Analysis website, here’s another link to that 98-page book version. It’s horrifying stuff. As you listen to Opossum’s speech tonight, just think of all those busloads of people from Illinois arriving to pose as Iowa voters in […]

Kangaroo Convention

I’m not watching the convention. I can’t stand it. It’s embarrassing. It makes the Politburo under Brezhnev look like a beacon of democracy. It makes China’s National Party Congress look like an anarchists’ convention. They’re laughing at us in Europe; you realize that. Here’s the Grundian: Obama wins make-believe Democratic party vote designed to be […]

Comment of the Day

From Ciccina: My jaw dropped when I read that Obama’s text message announcement went out at 3am – 3am being the name of the Clinton ad that apparently really got under the Possum-in-Chief’s skin. Here he’s supposed to be riding the unity pony into Denver, and what does he do? Flips the bird to 18 […]

Who are the PUMAs?

Hint: we’re not who Bonnie Erbe thinks we are: I’ve been so busy being a PUMA that I’ve had little time to read about PUMAs. Or I should say, read about myself, since in America it’s the media that tells us who and what we are. It’s like Patsy said on the radio the other […]

Jesus and Judas

That’s what popped into my head when I heard tonight’s rumor that Richardson will be Obama’s VP pick. Clearly I’m evil.

Caucus Fraud

If Obama is such a great candidate, why did he have to cheat to win? P.S. If you don’t have time to read the whole website (which is humongous), here’s a handy a 98-page report that summarizes the key findings and includes a few eyewitness stories from each state. Suitable for printing out and taking […]

Tonight on No Quarter Radio: Our View with Patsy and Sugar

Hey, everybody. It’s me, your long-lost host and ghost. I am and have been extremely busy doing extremely secret and important things connected to the convention in Denver. No, really. I have a whole double life thing going here that none of you know about. But there’s one thing I’ve been working on that isn’t […]
