The Same Person (via The Intersection of Social Work, Education & Technology)

Are you telling me that this doesn’t explain some things?  Like creating the monstrosity of Palin and his insistence that DADT is wrong?  When Gaston Leroux wrote the novel in 1910, the character of Erik (The Phantom) was 50-60 years old, making him at least 150 years old in 2010 so McCain is the right […]

Cheese-eating VAT-payers | Paul Krugman NY Times

Paul Krugman is hilarious when he points out the strange debate in this country about taxes.

This article illustrates the danger in pandering to the extreme right. McCain was a proponent of a common sense approach to immigration reform but he knew that in order to secure the 2008 nomination, he had to become a follower as opposed to a leader. Sad. Since losing to Barack Obama, however, he’s turned into the kind of party hack he used to live to mess with.

Can He Look Any More Strange?

Besides looking like Lon Chaney as Phantom of the Opera, poor John McCain looks like he’s in a perpetual state of constipation.

Recently however, he has started to remind me of the lady from Terry Gilliam’s Brazil. I’m telling you…. you can’t looks at this shit too long.
