Dear Wimp, uh, I mean Representative: Attorney General Eric Holder refused to turn over to the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee documents it requested, after saying he had already provided thousands of pages relating to the fiasco known as “Fast and Furious” during which one of our brave U.S. Border Patrol Agents, Brian Terry,…

Liberals Make Me Laugh

I’m not saying that all liberals are funny. For instance, I don’t think Bill Maher, Jon Stewart or David Letterman, is the least bit amusing.

You remember the movie Sleepless in Seattle with Meg Ryan in the female lead. Well, now there’s a new one out in the same genre. This one is called Clueless in San Francisco, currently playing in Washington D.C, and starring Nancy Pelosi. How clueless is Ms. Pelosi? Well, look at it this way: In the…

When I finally turned off the tv last night, it was 12:30 in the morning here in Washington state and, despite percentage signs and other stats flashing in red and blue inside my brain, I miraculously fell asleep.  Three Senatorial races were still undecided when I finally went to bed, Washington, Colorado and Alaska, and…
