Turkeys, Turkeys and More Turkeys

In a recent article, I wrote about a rogue turkey named Tom who had terrified the liberals on Martha’s Vineyard in much the same fashion as outlaw motorcycle gangs were often depicted terrorizing towns and vacationing families in a spate of lousy movies during the 50s and 60s. In the aftermath, I heard from a…

Jesse Jackson is Not Smart


Every time Jesse Jackson speaks, it sounds like he’s auditioning for a bad off Broadway play called An Escape from Reason. Jackson is a stammering mess; fundamentally unintelligent and rapidly losing the ability to draw upon the powers of smart improvisation that served him so well in the old days. He is more of a magic tonic salesman…

Racist Elements


Typically, when a politician or media personality starts receiving heat for publicly stating that the Tea Party is a racist movement, they fall back to a common argument.
