America is rife with politicians who like to screw around

America is rife with politicians who like to screw around

Let’s face it. Politics in America is stupidity on parade and randy political stupidity as well. At the National Rifle Association convention in Houston last week, one of high profile speakers was Sarah Palin, the failed 2008 Republican Vice Presidential candidate, failed former Alaska governor and certified flake. In spite of all her failures, Palin […]

Republicans: A party where failure is the only option

Republicans: A party where failure is the only option

After failing, once again, to capture the Presidency last fall, a number of Republicans sat down and wondered aloud what — if anything — could be done to reverse the party’s failed fortunes in the future. That gathering was followed by a series of meetings among party leaders, elected officials and consultants to find an […]

Failed governor and candidate Sarah Palin calls Obama a failure

Failed governor and candidate Sarah Palin calls Obama a failure

Failed Alaska Governor and equally-failed 2008 Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin took the stage of the annual gathering of right-wing failures — the Conservative Police Action Conference — over the weekend to call President Barack Obama a lair and delivered a tired speech of one-liners to a group that hoops and hollers a lot […]

‘Shuck and jive?’ Shucks, that just typical Sarah Palin

‘Shuck and jive?’  Shucks, that just typical Sarah Palin

Sarah Palin, the poster girl for the shallowness of American politics, keeps her foot in her mouth so much that she probably needs athlete’s foot powder for mouthwash. Her latest slip of the lip came in a Facebook posting that said: Why the lies? Why the cover up? Why the dissembling about the cause of […]

Is it up to Joe Biden to save Barack Obama’s butt?

Is it up to Joe Biden to save Barack Obama’s butt?

In a normal Presidential election year, the one vice presidential debate is usually an exercise in political vanity but Campaign 2012 is anything but normal. After President Barack Obama’s dismal debate performance last week put challenger Mitt Romney back into the race, the watchers and clockers will keep an eye on tonight’s veep talkfest between […]

Politicians and their parties are not the answer

Politicians and their parties are not the answer

It’s no secret that we at Capitol Hill Blue hold politicians, political parties and partisans in low esteem. Actually, that’s an understatement.  We think politicians, political parties are scum of the earth and those who buy into their fantasies are delusional at best. America doesn’t need another politician at the helm. We don’t need a […]

Romney ignored warnings about Ryan’s history of lies, exaggerations

Romney ignored warnings about Ryan’s history of lies, exaggerations

Campaign professionals vetting Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan as a potential Republican vice presidential candidate warned Mitt Romney‘s strategists that the Congressman had a “history of exaggeration and prevarication”  that could become a campaign issue and distraction but the GOP presidential nominee’s team ignored the warnings. Romney campaign insiders tell Capitol Hill Blue that an intense internal battle […]

Ryan gives Romney campaign much-needed boost in polls, fundraising

Ryan gives Romney campaign much-needed boost in polls, fundraising

As John McCain needed in 2008, presumptive GOP nominee Mitt Romney needed something — anything — to reinvigorate his moribund campaign for President. Tapping Sarah Palin as a vice presidential nominee gave McCain a jump in polls, fundraising and attention. Is Paul Ryan Romney’s Sarah Palin?  The candidate’s staff thinks so. In a memo released […]

Biden may be a screwup but he’s Obama’s boy

Biden may be a screwup but he’s Obama’s boy

Vice President Joe Biden‘s diarrhea of the mouth may keep him in hot water but President Barack Obama is sticking with his perennial screw-up and no plans to throw him out with the trash. Responding Thursday to a question on whether or not Obama might dump his veep from the tickets after another ground of […]
