Political pundits often make political predictions and are never held accountable for them. My predictions are often no better than anyone else’s predictions and they’re often made tongue-in-cheek. However, every year I review the previous year’s predictions because physical self-mortification in public is frowned upon while in it’s written form it is considered entertainment. At […]

As I was polishing the family heirloom martini shaker, a genie appeared. “Master of the Martini, listen to me. You have freed me from the curse that trapped me in here lo these many millennia.” To which I replied, “I didn’t think they had stainless steel thousands of years ago.” “SILENCE!

Dan Bice, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel’s political gossip columnist, reported tonight on nearly $60,000 in campaign contributions received by Senate candidate Congressman Tammy Baldwin from a pro-Iranian group.

My predictions, 29 for 2009, are below, and the results are in italics. 1. Beer and alcohol prices will increase substantially […]

You don’t want to miss Christopher Hitchens today. He connects the dots between the treatment of prisoners at Guantanamo to Obama’s speech at Cairo and finds where Western assumptions are only helping the enemy: Yet if we think it probable or possible that a man would only mutate into such a monster after undergoing the […]

Pundit Nation already has the You Tube video political leftists will cling to – McCain did not shake Obama’s hand, but had his wife greet him instead. Look, if McCain really wanted to be a snot, he would have steered his wife away from Obama, not towards him. Of course, I would have to steer […]
