David Brooks Writes the Mother of All Nonsense

Noted ‘conservanerd‘ David Brooks has abandoned all pretense of conservatism in his latest New York Times column titled “The Mother of All No-Brainers.” It’s pretty clear that he believes that his readers are the brainless ones – rarely have so

The Light Bulb Goes On About the GOP Congressional Leadership

The idea behind asymmetrical warfare is not a bad one – it just has one fatal flaw. That thought was probably the second to last thing that went through Osama Bin Laden’s mind when the SEALs came calling. The last

Trig Slimer Jack Stuef: Take That, Disabled Child

I hate to point out that the photos of Wonkette’s Jack Stuef looks just like you would expect a guy who thinks it’s cool to trash a three-year old with Down ‘s syndrome because he disagrees with the child’s mother’s

Top 10 Great Movie Opening Sequences
