Still Calling

Texas Trumpies to lose their land, are very sad.

I realize it’s not nice to point and laugh, but here’s a video I did for Raw Story about the very sad and silly Texas Trumpies who learned Dear Leader was serious about the wall, and that it’s getting built on land that Trump intends to take from them via eminent domain. Also, too: I’m…

“Corn. Miles and miles of corn.”

During my misspent youth in Rhode Island, my buddies and I had this ongoing joke about the midwest. “Why, I’m from Indiana,” one of us would say. “And ya know what we got there?” “Corn. Miles and miles of corn,” the rest of us would chime in. So when I saw the news that our…

The Congressional Review Act

Wondering how the Republicans are able to so quickly and efficiently destroy Obama’s legacy and cut funding for Planned Parenthood? It’s all about the Congressional Review Act, which I explain in this little animation I made for Raw Story.

Shit Floats

Liquid Divorce

I’ve been a home brewer since at least 1996, so it was pretty much guaranteed that any woman I spent any length of time with was going to get sucked into my hobby. My ex was no exception, and we merrily progressed from taste-alike beers made from kits to all-grain concoctions that were SO much…

Nobody Knows You When You’re Down and Out

Guys, shed a tear for Pat McCrory. Shed a single, crystal tear with a unicorn on a rainbow reflected in it. Former Gov. Pat McCrory says the backlash against House Bill 2 is making some employers reluctant to hire him but he’s currently doing consulting and advisory board work. McCrory has been appearing frequently in…
