70 Percent Newt

Newt started his talk with this question: who wouldn’t take 70% of the vote in any election? Obviously, for a room full of donors and long shot challengers (2 of 16 of us would prevail), the answer was an unsurprising no one.

Notes and Asides

There are few people who we can kill on sight in history, and this was one of them. That the president felt the need to hide from the fact that he ordered just that is puzzling; after all, if polled, the only people who would have said “bring him here alive” would be the far left, who are going to vote for him anyway. As for the other 80-90% of us, our only regret is we don’t know where to send the beer for the guys who did it.

A Sudden Burst of Marcellus Reality

A Sudden Burst of Marcellus Reality

Scarnati, has heard the screams and noted the reverberations of polls taken from a jaded public. How can Governor Corbett, with a straight face, tell Pennsylvanians they must share the burden of balancing Pennsylvania’s $4 to $5 billion dollar budget deficit, but the gas industry is free to make as many millions as they want — knowing, laughing, that the Governor has no interest in taxing the riches drillers are sucking out of the state.

Why on God’s green Earth do I care whom George the Third’s progeny is marrying – and why is ANYTHING about it on ESPN?

Hacks

every time I think the American people have had enough, some how we tolerate the nonsense and we sink a little deeper in the ooze. We sit back and let entertainers get rich off of dividing us, and we let politicians gain and hold power by scaring us into inaction. No side is blameless,
