Fox News is home to more anger and indignation than one yellow couch can contain, especially for a news channel. And with its early efforts at promoting the Tea Party, including the organization and promotion of several “FNC Tax Day Tea Parties” back in 2009, it’s clearly designed to help you get angry, too.
We guess it makes sense that CPAC, the annual Conservative Political Action Conference, would exclude gay conservative groups like the Log Cabin Republicans and GOProud. It’s easier outlaw or limit homosexual rights based on a child-like understanding of marriage and sex when said people aren’t around to refute it.
If you’re not rooting against Romania in the Winter Olympics already, you will be now. [Note to SeriouslyIntern: Check whether Romania is even competing in the Olympics so we don't look stupid.]
Romanian politician Remus Cernea is drumming up support for giving human rights to dolphins, which are not, in fact, humans. He apparently doesn’t care about being seen as a species traitor and has introduced a bill that would grant the enemy the same rights as we humans, just because they are allegedly intelligent.
Luckily, Cernea hasn’t found much support at tall. [Note to SeriouslyIntern: Come up with funny line tying this all back to vampires.]
Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe may have won in the narrowest, most inauspicious (as evidenced by the number of noses held when casting ballots) gubernatorial election in recent state history. But, damn if he doesn’t have a plan to improve bipartisanship in the state government.
And that plan? The Reagan-O’Neill Strategem: hate each others guts until 5, then come over to the governor’s mansion for some top shelf booze.
“To the discount hooch and Bud Light normally on tap at the mansion, the governor has added top-shelf liquor and microbrews at his own expense,” so that’s an improvement over his predecessor in two ways.
Gov. McAuliffe has dubbed the charm offense “Sixty parties in 60 days!” — the length of Virginia’s legislative session. The governor could not, however, rule out extending the session to include a late night trip to IHOP on Day 61.
Also, while we’re no James Carvilles, I’m pretty sure that mixing your metaphors isn’t for the best:
‘It’s was a play on words,’ Mozena explains.’We are accountable to the government in so many ways, whether it’s the IRS, and now with our healthcare. I’m just asking them to bend over now and show us their finances.’
No one wants to see any council person’s finances. Or their tuchus.
The drink in your hand says a lot about you, provided it’s not beer. According to a new study, the type of liquor or wine you drink may not only tell about your political leanings, but how likely you are to vote.
National Media Planning and Placement released a chart of based on consumer data that connects how likely a drinker of a certain brand of wine or liquor is to vote, and how likely that drinker is to vote Democratic or Republican. Who’s ready for some fun observations about this fun, but mostly useless data?
Captain Morgan (spiced) is the drink of the moderate but unenthused, while Barardi drinkers are just as moderate, but more likely to stagger over to the polls.
People who are likely to vote seem to agree that wine is for them, but only freedom-hating left-wingers drink Smoking Loon, while conservatives sip Robert Mondavi as they reload their guns.
Conservative voters like whiskey, bourbon and scotch, while liberals like vodka and gin.
If you drink tequila, whether Democrat or Republican, your inability to stand makes it unlikely that you’re going to vote.
It was only a matter of time before Snapchat, the Internet’s number one site for exchanging pervy pictures would join forces with the U.S. Congress, the number one user of those services over the age of 18.
In the wake of a high-profile hacking that revealed personal data from users, the tech company has hired some hotshot lobbyists, including Heather Podesta*, to help promote Web security policies that would prevent such leaks in the future. Also, to probably explain to some of the older members on the Hill (heh) how hacking Snapchat could put a real wrinkle in their careers.
And by “their careers,” we mean their ball sacks. Wrinkles are still wrinkles.
*You can learn more about Heather “‘It Girl’ of Washington” Podesta at her Wikipedia page that she almost certainly did not write herself.
After receiving threats of a peaceful counter-protest, the Young Conservatives of Texas, a conservative student group at the University of Texas, has cancelled their “Catch an Illegal Immigrant Game.”
The plan was to send out members wearing a sign that identified them as an “illegal immigrant” and give a $25 gift certificate — but totally not a bounty — to any student who turned them in to their table. The objective was to … teach college students to turn DREAM Act students in to other students? That illegal immigrants something something …
You know what? If you want to exercise your right to free speech to be a dick, at least have the balls to follow through on it, no matter how irrational.
John Rosentangle was 63 when he “died” in August. That didn’t keep him from winning 71% of the vote for King County Water District 54 last week. Meanwhile, in the city of Aberdeen, John Erak, 81, was running for city council when he died of an illness. However, after death, he still campaigned well enough to get 53% of the vote.
After winning the Boston mayoral election, Marty Walsh received two calls: one from the President’s calling service and the next from Vice President Joe Biden himself. The only problem was that both called the wrong Marty Walsh in Boston.
Both had called Marty Walsh, a consultant who managed Ted Kennedy’s 2006 senate reelection campaign, not Marty Walsh, the guy Boston just elected.
We guess it makes sense that the White House is the last office on Earth that still uses the White Pages.
