We could use another Herbert Hoover like we could use a habanero juice enema.


Oooooh, he has a masters degree from the Robertson School of Business at Regent University. No doubt he made an A in Fleecing the Flock 101.

Give Nathan Tabor credit….his very name is a nutty wingnut policy scheme. That shows real dedication to the cause!

I don’t see any Democrats named Delores Schip, Julian Hipaa, or Alfonso Fmla.


The reason to hold fast to free market principles is simple: no other institution can so effectively meet the wants and needs of American‘s richest citizens.

I think that helps.

…and wasn’t Delores Schip one of the women in that ‘Raining McCain’ video?


Everybody’s over-weight
In a wingnut welfare state
If you’re in, it works just great
These are the daaaaaaaays!


Wasn’t that text supposed to go into a fourth-grade home-school economic text? Where’s the column for adults?


I can’t be bothered to look it up. Isn’t Nathan Tabor the one who tried to run for poliitcal office at the age off 19 or something? And his family has some kind of business selling vitaminds or herbalife or something?


How bizarre – I had the theme song from “All in the Family” stuck in my head last night for no real reason. I must have seen this one coming somehow.

Thanks for the alternate lyrics, Me – perfect.


Alfonso Fmla.



The thing is, I kind of agree with that title. And I say that as a red-dyed Bevanite Socialist.


After seven years of President Smug Useless Asshole, I think most Americans would jump at the chance to have Herbert Hoover back in power.

(Oh, there I go again. I forgot to be politically correct and now I risk offending those poor, feeble-minded conservatives who wander onto this site and are SHOCKED to find people making fun of their big hero. Really, though. It’s hardly MY fault that these yo-yos have chosen to worship mediocrities (I’m being nice) like Ronald Reagan and George W. Bush.)


*takes deep breath*
“THE Sun’ll come out tomorrow…”


Alfonso Fmla?

I thought that was the first line of the French national anthem.


ifthethunderdontgetya: Great video. Should be enough to end speculation about who he will choose as a running mate.


Hell, I’d bring back Nero. At least fiddling is entertaining.

Typical Republican Pedant

Nero didn’t play the fiddle as it hadn’t been invented yet.

He played the lyre.

Liberals. Hmf.


Hey, Herbert Hoover may have sucked as a President, but he was a competent engineer, and medievalists still consider his translation of De Re Metallica (On Metals) from Latin to English to be definitive.

That’s at least a hundred more accomplishments right there than Drunky McStagger has ever managed.

Hoover ’08 — He’s rested, he’s ready, he’s dead!


Nathan Tabor is a conservative political activist based in Kernersville, North Carolina, where he owns a successful small business and was recently a candidate for Congress. He has his Master’s Degree in Public Policy from the Robertson School of Government at Regent University

Wow! A Regent University Graduate! I wonder if he’s a close personal friend of Monica Goodling? Gee, and a Master in Public Policy? I wonder if their public policy classes include tossing the moneychangers from the Temple and other Biblical Public Policy.

I wonder when he’s heading to Mess O’Potamia? Oh, that’s right, he’s with Jason Mattera in the Chickenhawk battle of ideas.

Where as Bush played a Liar as America went down the shitter.

That was sheer brilliance. I was still wavering between troll and parody troll until the woman splashed some fresh McCain on her face. Well done, ladies. Well done.


The “It’s rainin’ McCain” trio took a few years off my life. Especially that snarly-faced lead singer.


Hoover also helped the Belgians, which was 100000eleventymillion% more than anything Chimpy McStagger has ever done for anyone.


He has his …

{hu … hheee}

… Master’s Degree …

{ho … hoooo}

in Public Policy

{ooohhhh ….. wait for it….}

… from the …

{aahhhh… haaa….}

Robertson School of Government


… at Regent University


“(T)he feminist agenda is not about equal rights for women. It is about a socialist, anti-family political movement that encourages women to leave their husbands, kill their children, practice witchcraft, destroy capitalism and become lesbians.”

“I’d like to say to the good citizens of Dover: If there is a disaster in your area, don’t turn to God, you just rejected him from your city. And don’t wonder why he hasn’t helped you when problems begin, if they begin. I’m not saying they will, but if they do, just remember, you just voted God out of your city. And if that’s the case, don’t ask for his help because he might not be there.” –Pat Robertson, after the city of Dover, Pennsylvania voted to boot the current school board, which instituted an intelligent design policy that led to a federal trial

“God considers this land to be his. You read the Bible and he says ‘This is my land,’ and for any prime minister of Israel who decides he is going to carve it up and give it away, God says, ‘No, this is mine.’ … He was dividing God’s land. And I would say, ‘Woe unto any prime minister of Israel who takes a similar course to appease the E.U., the United Nations, or the United States of America.’ God says, ‘This land belongs to me. You better leave it alone.'” –Pat Robertson, on why Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon suffered a massive stroke

Yes, Pat Robertson, finely nuanced political theorist and historian that he is, gets a SCHOOL OF GOVERNMENT dedicated to him.

If this wasn’t so fucking funny it would be entirely infuriating.

Come to think of it … it’s both.


Nick, that’s no fair. I wanted to the first to comment on the top ranked public policy department at Regent University. I can’t even come up with a witty one-liner about the teaching of “loyalty oaths.”

This blog never fails to make me laugh hysterically. I love the “shorter” items. So funny.
