Predictably, there were errors, omissions, and outright ...

Obama’s Hypocrisy Exposed (Again)

This excellent video points out two cases of delicious irony in one fell swoop.  Our president has recently called Sandra Fluke to let her know that he doesn’t approve of meanies like Rush Limbaugh calling her a “slut” while simultaneously taking $1 million (via super pac) from Bill Maher.  (who “unapologetically” calls Sarah Palin a C_NT)   The Irony Police are ...

Snippets From The SOTU: Obama Asks For More Power

Now I may be reading this wrong, but the last few sentences of this quote make it sound like our president is asking for Congress to grant the Executive branch (even) more powers.  (wording in bold is my emphasis) “Some of what’s broken has to do with the way Congress does its business these days.
