Guiliani Thinking Is "Outside The Box"

By The Reverend Published: October 31, 2007

The stupid saying "thinking outside the box" has been with us for a bit now and has been used in a variety of ways for a variety of reasons. Thinking unconventionally, I believe, is the original intended meaning. Rudy Guiliani, for example, thought "thinking outside the box" meant he should remain as New York's mayor even after his term ran out. No question, that was unconventional thinking.

If A War Protest Falls In The Woods And No One Hears It....

By The Reverend Published: October 29, 2007

Anti-war protesting is just so boring. That must be why the Knee Pad U.S. MSM didn't much cover this weekend's protests. If an anti-war protest isn't heard or seen, did it really happen at all?

A Tale Of Two Disasters

By The Reverend Published: October 28, 2007

It's really something to behold. America's president commenting on Southern California fires the other day. Contrary to popular opinion that started sometime in 1999 or 2000, no one I know would like to sit down and have a beer with this president. Why? Basically because he's an immature pr*ck.

King George Junior

By The Reverend Published: October 26, 2007

When Alberto Gonzales stepped down as Attorney General I fully expected King George Junior to nominate a wingnut of significant proportion to fill Alberto's shoes. Instead, the King nominated Michael Mukasey, who, at first glance, didn't seem like your average neo-conservative attorney.

Rudy's Foreign Policy & The "Values Voters"

By The Reverend Published: October 25, 2007

Rudy Guiliani has a foreign policy advisory group...umm...advising him on which middle eastern country he should attack should he (god forbid) be elected president....or in the remote chance that the Supreme Court selects him. You know, you can't rule that out.

Male Penis Now WMD According To New Bush Appointee

By The Reverend Published: October 18, 2007

When a lame ducker president is at 24% approval rating the upside, for him, is that there are fewer and fewer supporters he needs to target. The president's cluster-lame-duckness messaging can be tailored exclusively for the tiny "culture of life" nut-group. Think: Terry Schiavo freak-show.

Was It Really 9-11 That Changed Everything?

By The Reverend Published: October 12, 2007

The primary reason given by this White House and it's defenders for spying on Americans without warrants has been....nine-eleven. We were told, and still are, that "everything has changed" since 9-11. If the president needed to set aside the Constitution a bit and violate some laws concerning FISA and the 4th amendment....it was because of 9-11.

Pre-emptive Pardoning

Bill Is Only A Plus To Hillary's Presidency

By The Reverend Published: October 11, 2007

It has been interesting to me to observe how the media mob, for the most part, has tried their best to portray Bill Clinton's role in his wife's campaign to be president, as a negative issue. Night after night, I have listened to the usual Knee Pad suspects go on and on about how Bill's presence in the White House with a Hillary presidency would be a bad thing that Americans just couldn't suffer.

The Reverend Gives The GOP Some Advice

By The Reverend Published: October 8, 2007

You know how Republicans always run on tax cuts? And you know how Republicans always SAY that their tax cuts will help average American workers even though they never do? And then, of course, you know how many relatively unsophisticated voters will actually believe the lies of those tax cutting Republicans and, like, go ahead and vote for them anyway...even though doing so goes against their own interests?

Update On The Decider's Illegal Spying On Americans
