META-INFOGRAPHIC on INFOGRAPHICS

By mw | Related entries in Media, Partisan Nonsense, Satire, WTF?

What better way to learn about infographics than an infographic about infographics? Most infographics are focused on the use of infographics in business to promote an product or service you might not know you need or want. What is needed is an infographic focused on the use of infographics in politics to promote an idea that you might otherwise consider laughable, nonsensical and unsupportable.

Racism increases 67% since January

By mw | Related entries in Barack, Health Care, Partisan Hacks, Partisan Nonsense, Race, Satire

Here are the facts. Racism has been rising steadily over the last few months. In recent polls, President Obama’s job approval number has dropped from 70% to 50%. This means the percentage of racists in this country has risen from 30% to 50% – a 67% increase in only eight months! Even more alarming, close to one out of two Americans are now racist. We have reached a tipping point. If this trend continues, the racists will soon be in a majority. Now, more than ever, we need the pundits and sages of the mainstream media to speak out.

Whichever one of the Ten Commandments tells us not to bow down to idols, that’s the one we’ve been breaking with all the Abraham Lincoln worship lately. There’s no way he was even half as popular amongst Northerners back in the 1860s (I still bump into Civil War kooks down South who HATE Lincoln more […]

Ban This Cover!

More from ABC: In the Entertainment Weekly cover story, Stewart says the power of Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin’s entry into the race is evidenced in the ability it had to sideline every other character in the election. Stewart calls the press covering it “six-year-olds playing soccer.” “It has cast the first African-American presidential nominee, the […]

A Reader Responds To New Yorker Cover Posts

By Justin Gardner | Related entries in Barack, Media, Satire

Via email, Eugene McCain (no relation) has this to say in response to posts by Alan and mw… I understand your position that this was satire and that Obama should have acknowledged that. In hindsight maybe that would have been best for his campaign. But…… 1. The Truth is that a large number (10%, 20%, […]

Yesterday, Chuck Norris appeared with Mike Huckabee at Clemson University. It reminded me why YOU DONT F*CK WITH CHUCK! Obama has Oprah, Edwards has Tim Robbins, Fred Thompson has The National Right To Life Committee… but Huckabee has Chuck Norris. God help us all. Tweet

George W Bush determined to unite us.

By mw | Related entries in Polls, Satire

Some might think that 65% of country joined shoulder to shoulder, arms locked in solidarity disapproving of how the president is doing his job qualifies as uniting the country. While this may be close enough for some, it is not enough for this President.

End Of The Affair.

By sideways | Related entries in Comedy, News, Partisan Hacks, Satire

Things are getting bad for President Bush. Even Peggy Noonan seems to be having her doubts. For the uninitiated, Peggy Noonan’s spent the last six years responding to every Bush appearance by rolling over, waving her paws in the air and wetting herself in an orgy of submissiveness. He is talking a lot lately, out […]

The Hatfield’s & McCoys: Lieberman v. Lamont

By Daniel DiRito | Related entries in Bad Decisions, General Politics, Satire

I think it’s time for a little perspective and a reality check. Perhaps the most important midterm election in modern history is little more than three months away and as I watch the Lieberman vs. Lamont race, I have to shake my head at the energy being invested by Democrats to defeat another Democrat. With […]
