Liveblogging Benedict Arnold

May 3, 2009

While the above “documentary” on Benedict Arnold is quite hysterical, for great insight into his life, watch parts 1 and 2 of the A & E biography.

10:15 AM:  Welcome to the Liveblog of Benedict Arnold: a/k/a Arlen Specter.  I’m sure David Gregory will ask him tough questions — like “how hard was it to beat cancer?”  The cancer question is a toughie.

10:20 AM:  Specter wants a minority to add diversity to the Court.   He does not want a politician to be appointed.  An academic.  A woman.  An African-American.  An Hispanic.  Good thing Specter left the G.O.P.  What an asshole.

10:22 AM:  “Empathy.”  Trying to muster some up for Republicans.  Nope.  Ain’t happening here.

Republicans Whig Out!

April 28, 2009

From The Whig Party: Cineribus Nascitur:


Take that Republican Party!  The vestiges of The Whig Party, now that they’ve gotten all techy up in our grill, are predicting (albeit with cheap screen caps) The G.O.P’s demise.  Much like Van Gogh, The Whig Party paints the death of The Republican Party in somber colors — a 1970’sish car careening off a cliff into a fiery pit of Hell.  Or something like that.

Yet, it’s The Republican Party who seems to like hacking off body parts.

Does Arlen Specter’s defection from the Getting Old Party spell doom for our Rabid Republican Rivals?  Will the G.O.P’s recent slide down the scientific polls of Americana cause a rebirth for a party that can not even properly spell a homophone for a hairpiece?  Their primary constituency?  Do you like bizarre allusions to Batman?  Tune in next week.  Same Rat-Time.  Same Rat-Channel.


60! Gay Rights Activists Up In Arms About Specter’s Reasons For Switching Teams

April 28, 2009


In a stunning blow to gay rights activists, Senator Arlen Specter has been converted and switched teams according to CNNDeveloping…

Pennsylvania Senator Arlen Specter, facing a brutal primary fight for the Republican nomination, announced today that he is switching parties and would run for re-election in 2010 as a Democrat.

“I am unwilling to have my twenty-nine year Senate record judged by the Pennsylvania Republican primary electorate. I have not represented the Republican Party. I have represented the people of Pennsylvania,” Specter said in a statement. “I am ready, willing and anxious to take on all comers and have my candidacy for re-election determined in a general election.”

Go For It Rock!
