Santorum “N” Words President Obama

Janesville, Wisconsin — “Ni…” may be a joke Mel Brooks pulls off in his movie, “Blazing Saddles,” seeming to catch himself mid-word referring to the new, black sheriff standing within earshot. “Nig…” is definitely not a joke when Rick Santorum uses the word to denegrate President Obama in a campaign speech on Tuesday in Wisconsin.

Santorum Believes He’s the Next Ronald Reagan

FAIRFIELD, Calif. — Showing off his foreign policy chops, Rick Santorum delivered what he promoted as his “first major foreign policy speech”… at One Jelly Belly Lane of all places, the Jelly Belly company where the much beloved Ronald Reagan got his stash of jelly beans.  To conservative Republicans, the site is now considered as […]

Santorum Gets Pissy: Says Vote for Obama, not Etch A Sketch Romney

SAN ANTONIO, TX – (Shifferbrains) – Rick Santorum, coming off a nasty drubbing by Romney in the Illinois primary, threw a hissy-fit in San Antonio, yesterday.

Goebbels most famously said and put into practice: “The bigger the lie, the more people will believe it.” Unfortunately, politicians of all stripes have been following Goebbels’ lead ever since, and none more […]

Three years later, in 1842, an […]

Palin Challenges Obama to a “Duel of Wits” Debate… with an Unloaded Weapon

The ever frisky Sarah Palin took issue with her images and words appearing  in an election ad for Obama, which effectively asks, “Are You Tired of Far Right Loonies, Tea Partiers, and Whack-Jobs?” Later, continuing in her unremitting battle with sadomasochism, Palin challenged President Obama to a one-on-one duel of wits in a debate. A […]

Vote for Rick “Savonarola” Santorum

I admit it. I am flat guilty of many of the sins Rick Santorum rattles on about while running for President. I am without defense. For starters, I am guilty of being: 1)      educated, having frittered away much time and money earning a  college degree and advanced education, 2)      reasonably intelligent (Santorum says Satan attacks […]
