Mugsy’s predictions for 2012: “The apocalypse never comes when you want it” Edition (UPDATED)

Share
 

 Where to start? Every year since 2006 I’ve dug deep into my toy-chest, pulled out the turban from my “Ancient Secrets Magic Kit”, rubbed my lucky penny for good luck, and concocted my annual “Predictions for the coming year”. And by the end of that year, I always expect to find I did really poorly… but my […]

The List II: Santorum, Huntsman, and The Rest.

Share
 

 This week raps up our review of the remaining “also-rans” in the GOP primary… the candidates that have never polled out of the single digits and never will: former Senator Rick “Don’t Google My Name” Santorum of PA (Oops! Shortly after posting this op/ed, Santorum became the last “Not-Romney” standing to finally break out of the single-digits into the Top Tier […]

The List II: The Strange Case of Dr. Ron Paul.

Share
 

 It is extremely difficult to summarize the very complex platform of Texas Rep. Dr. Ron Paul without getting too deep into the weeds as to why he’s often a clueless… even dangerous… presidential candidate that no one should ever seriously consider voting for. The Texas Libertarian is extremely popular among young voters (mostly Conservative & […]

The List II: Michele Bachmann

Share
 

 Everybody knows someone like Michele Bachmann. The “Tall Tale” teller, the “Everyone’s out to get you” paranoid, or the Bible-thumper that throws a screaming hissy-fit if you dare challenge their beliefs. But how many of us know all-three rolled into one? Long-time readers know I can’t refer to Michele Bachmann without the obligatory “BSC*” suffix after […]

The List II: Newt Gingrich

Share
 

 This weeks “List” tackles former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich. I’ve made no secret of my distaste for the former Speaker over the years. In fact, among all the GOP candidates, I don’t think I have a more visceral dislike of anyone more than “Professor” Newt Gingrich. Even BSC* Michele Bachmann and Rick “Don’t Google My Name” Santorum, who […]

The Hypocrisy of Cain Playing The Race Card

Share
 

 Quick, somebody ask Bill Clinton, John Edwards, Anthony Weiner and Arnold Schwarzenegger if the Media’s obsession with political sex scandals are based on race. A third fourth fifth woman has now stepped forward to accuse Cain of sexual misconduct back when he ran the “National Restaurant Association” in the 1990’s (fun-fact: the case against Cain […]

The TRUE Legacy of 9/11 is the failure of Conservatism.

Share
 

 I must have mulled over a dozen different ways to commemorate the 10th Anniversary of 9/11 here on Mugsy’s Rap Sheet. Back on the first anniversary, I created a “Tribute video” that was mostly news clips from that day showing both towers being hit and smoking wreckage at the Pentagon & Shanksville. But I decided we’ve all […]

Paul-bearer. An eulogy for three ideologies.

Share
 

 Last week was a bad week for Republicans named “Paul”. The Libertarian Dynamic Duo of Rand & Ron Paul once again showed the world why the term “Libertarian” is just a convenient label for people that want to take already bad Conservative principles and push them to their most absurd extremes. And Republican wunderkind “Paul […]

The Sin of O’Mission

Share
 

 Let’s make one thing perfectly clear: I’m a supporter of President Obama. And if he is the DNC nominee in 2012, I will be voting for him… a tad reluctantly, I will admit. But he will have my vote. With that being said, few (real) Democrats have frustrated me the way President Obama has. During […]

Special Edition: A Tale of Two Fake Interviews: Walker vs. Schiller

Share
 

 Last month, Wisconsin governor Scott Walker got “punked” by a Buffalo, NY radio morning-show host pretending to be billionaire Conservative activist “David Koch”. And yesterday, Conservative slam-journalist and convicted felon James O’Keefe posted a hidden-camera video interview with National Public Radio’s Senior VP Ron Schiller and Senior Director of Giving Betsy Liley. The video, shot last […]

Don’t Be Surprised If Democrats Don’t Lose Big

Share
 

 Two wars that weren’t paid for. Huge tax cuts for the rich that weren’t paid for. TARP bailout that wasn’t paid for. Medicare Part-D that wasn’t paid for. Then they point and say, “Look at this huge deficit Obama created!” For months now, the “fact” that Democrats “will lose big” this election has been repeated […]

The “Proud to be an American” Test

Share
 

 How any times have you heard some lunatic on national television say something that made you roll your eyes and mutter out loud to no one in particular, “Makes you proud to be an American”? We all have at one time or another. And I had several such moments listening to all the feigned Right-wing […]
