The Race Card

So Whoopi Goldberg decided she’d play the race card (again).  Well, Whoopti-Doo!  Whoopi, honey, it’s been over-played.  By you, by Janeane Garafolo, by Chris “Tingles” Matthews and by every other liberal that can’t defend the President’s actions and policies with facts or logic. Stop calling me racist.  It’s old, and it’s trite.  Stop trying to [...]

The tea party….hangover, or still rolling along?

Country Singer On Hiatus

Hello Military Pundits readers! I just wanted to pop in to let everyone know that I will resume contributing when I return from somewhere in the Middle East.

Better than a Pinewood Derby

Hero or Troll? Olbermann loves this guy, and that says a lot *UPDATED*

Keith Olbermann has provided us with a new folk hero to compete with Joe the Plumber.
