I remember hearing George Carlin once refer to the news media as a bulletin board of the powerful. I can’t help but think of that when I read over the tenor of this “Joseph Biden — Don’t run for President” story in the New York Times. Try this one for a second. Those supporters, in […]
Getting the right Greece allusions… go to Byzantium, not Antiquity. Dennis Rodman supports Donald Trump. The Socialists argue about Bernie Sanders Why don’t Women like Rand Paul? Ted Cruz watches porn with Conan O’brien ripping off some guy’s twitter feed? The Onion explains Putin’s Russia 25 Y
Ralph Nader complains about the coverage of Donald Trump, and suggests Kasich should be in any Republican debate. Does well to complain that the Huffington Post is here in the “entertainment” business. Kavitches about poor showing of his various presidential bids — though I will argue with him on something
Good thing it wasn’t Ant-man. Because then we’d have a pattern with Superhero movies to work with and speculate widely about…
Lincoln Chafee has an inside source… Or just speculates furiously, because what else has he got? BIDEN TO MAKE A BID!!! Though… Chafee said that he would put “two dollars” on a Biden bid, going on later to say “I think he’s going to get in.” Two dollars? More like… TWO DOLL HAIRS!!! Gotta make
This week’s Willamette Week cover story answers a few questions about the Gresham Cake Controversy that had puzzled me… which, admittedly, if I were more curious I could easily look closer into at any point in the last couple years in court dispositions, etc. The hinge for me is the difference between “cre
Disappointing to reference a “neo-nazi cult” in the headline. Sure, I know… “Borman’s Ghost”, “The Underground Reich” — see the Dave Emory program for the latter and a blog post series for the former, but — precision is off. And here we go... But a British inques
Hey! Jim Gilmore is running for President. Because… why not? He briefly ran for president in the 2008 cycle — announcing his candidacy in December 2006 before withdrawing in July 2007, citing the difficulty of raising money. He went on to run for the U.S. Senate in his native Virginia that year for retiring GOP

EJ Dione asks for someone to step up to save the Republican Party and the nation for each other. Jeb Bush. Because, um… Bush saves?
“This is an interesting book. Elephantman. It’s about Human Animal Hybrids., You know, like George W Bush.” Er. Funny that Bush-comment, but it’s 20 freaking 14 now. Jeb is next in line. Also, does this mean Spiderman a comic book about Human Insect Hybrids?
The Elusive State of Jefferson, Peter Laufer While the “Proclamation of Independence” was being posted around Jefferson and handed out at the armed roadblocks, something called the Northern Counties Anti-Jefferson Committee reacted with their own handbills and press releases, distributed anonymously in Yrkea fro

“This election is not only a repudiation of Obama, but also the Clintons, and what the people are seeing is there is no difference between the Clinton Democrats and the Obama Democrats.” So goes Rand Paul (paraphrasing here) upon the victory of Mitch McConnell in particular, and Republicans in general, posturing
On the eve of a Senate Majority Leader Mitch Mcconell. There’s much debate on what that means… one minority report shrugging “gridlock is gridlock whether the two houses in Congress are united or not”, the two sides of the equation in party terms musing about this tidbit and that tidbit. Or, gridlo
Without suggesting the validity of the causes either way, the cause of labeling genetically modified foods has, roughly the same hurdle to cross as the cause against fluoridation — to convince the broad public of its mainstream validity as not some posturing from crunchy granola types — the added burden is that
Monica Wehby shows us the the standard black and white image of the grainy, unflattering Jeff Merkley. The voice snarls. “Senator Jeff Merkley is a bad man.” Fade to black. Next shot. Color, brightly lit. Monica Wehby is walking down a hospital hallway, smiling and nodding with clipboard in hand at p
As New Hampshire Sen. Jeanne Shaheen accused former Sen. Scott Brown of “fear-mongering” on Ebola, Democrats strongly agreed, Republicans completely disagreed, and independent voters stayed neutral. Interesting question. Scott Brown rode his pick-up truck into a Senate seat in Massachusetts, now trying to take
Scottish Independence Bid failed. 1980. Reagan versus Carter and Extraterrestrials. The Midterm Election problem for Democrats and Republicans. Bobby Jindal versus Ebola.

So. Nikki Mattson. Apparently still running. Board of Regents. University of Michigan. Under the Natural Law Party. One of six candidates. Since the stats page show interest, I’ll be sure to try to profile them all before November… or… somewhat.
A lecture on video game culture was canceled at Utah State University this week after the school received threats of a mass shooting.

By most accounts, the Democratic Party is going to get some kind of thumping the first Tuesday of November, and lose the Senate. … because, … erm… Ebola Sealed it. Which is why it is weird that some weird race popped out of nowhere in South Dakota. All good and well, and it is clever [...]
Moving through the Oregon Voters Pamphlet… The Constitution Party candidate for Governor, Alan Auer, make the point that… We are all created in the Creator’s image; therefore, the unalienable rights of the unborn is the first duty of civil government. Human life is sacred. Male and female created He them.
The cover should be funny, as it is clearly an allusion to … er… this… The comic book series where Archie gang the gang face the Zombie Apocalypse, as headed by none other than Zombie Jughead. The first case of a comic book released by Archie Comics that would not pass the dictates [...]

“I saw Joseph Biden.” “Joseph Biden?” “Joseph Biden.” Apparently, he did. Eating ice cream. To, you know, have to choke back that type of “gaffe” where he accidentally says something truthful but inconvenient. … Blah blah blah… Did you hear that one about Sau
