Chicago Dems support GOP candidate for governor because their guy made such a mess


A familiar face in Chicago Democratic politics is throwing his support behind a GOP challenger for Illinois governor rather than the Democratic incumbent — and he’s taking a lot of others with him. Obama supporter Manny Sanchez, who led a Latino outreach in the city of Chicago for the Democratic Party, is now throwing his […]

‘Dumb racist moron': War erupts between Trump, MSNBC’s Touré

Donald Trump

New-age race hustler Touré managed to provoke Donald Trump into a Twitter battle Monday that turned into a real donnybrook. The MSNBC co-host began poking at Trump with a series of tweets focusing on the business magnate‘s finances, and he eventually took the bait. And it got personal real quick with Trump calling Touré everything […]

Mitt Romney’s shenanigans, Santorum ad, and Donald Trump


In my last joke post, I made fun of Ron Paul and Newt Gingrich. This week, it’s Mitt Romney’s and Rick Santorum’s turn. Throw in a laugh at Donald Trump, a shot at Obama and a few other assorted attempts at humor, and my work here is done.   I’m spending a lot of time […]

Newt Gingrich on Romney and Ron Paul’s Florida campaign

It’s not really Newt’s new Florida ad, but it almost could be. I’m in Orlando for the quarterly Republican Party of Florida meeting, so I didn’t have time to do all the jokes and write an introduction truly worthy of a BizPac Review Weekender column. Paulians, please lighten up. It’s just a joke. Live long […]

Debbie Wasserman-Schultz’s new hairstyle

Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s hairstyle may not be the most important topic being discussed in the country right now, but many think it’s a conversation worth having. Even Democrats I know have snickered to me, “When is she going to do something with that hair?” On Twitter, one can follow the snarky remarks made by DWSHair, […]

Herman Cain back at work and Newt Gingrich’s lottery win

The humor section of my brain is probably one of the very few bipartisan areas of my body. I like Herman Cain. I defended him on this site. But in the end, I can’t help the way my mind works and what I find funny. Life is too serious and over too quickly not to […]

Christmas in Japan and Occupy this

My editor is always telling me I should write a short introduction for my weekend joke posts but I never know what to say. I’m just sharing a bunch of stuff I find funny. So here, edited for language, is my intro: “You mean, let me understand this cause, ya know maybe it’s me, maybe, […]

Democrat Ted Deutch can’t get into Century Village

  Just another day with Jess Santamaria at the Palm Beach County Commission.  Nick Loeb was amazed anyone actually thought he would run.   The water in West Palm Beach tastes worse than Obi-Wan Kenobi’s foot bath. This stuff will kill you if you’re not careful!   Turn the page already!  

How old is Burt Aaronson, really?


I remember years ago, when the phrase “aging communist leader” was used all the time. Since communist leaders in China and the Soviet Union only left office when they died, there was a time in the 1960s and 1970s when the age of these nations’ leaders was a running political gag. Here in Palm Beach […]
