About Richard Nixon...

It was written by Conrad Black, who himself knows a thing or two about being railroaded by his enemies, especially the political kind.

I found this article interesting because Black uses the phrase "criminalization of policy and partisan differences", and means that to say that both ends of the political spectrum routinely accuse the other of being the absolute worst people born since Hitler and Genghis Khan had identical triplets. According to this sort of mindset, anything the other side has to say on any subject is reflexively responded to by it's counterpart as the grossest crime, or the most egregious abuse of human rights, and probably an indication that one side or the other would like to run a conveyor belt full of kittens through industrial wood chippers and sell the resulting mess as luncheon meat in your kid's school cafeteria.

No one gets the benefit of the doubt, anymore, no serious question ever gets the fair hearing it deserves.

For The Sake of My Fat Ass...

Okay, so it's been a week since I've gotten out of the hospital, and one of the things I seriously need to start doing is taking off some of this excess blubber I'm carrying around. Truth to tell, I was absolutely flabbergasted when I stepped on that scale in the ER and the little LED display read...well, those numbers.

See, this Lunatic needs to lose approximately *cough-cough* pounds, which is an awful lot. Believe me, you never knew *cough-cough* could be such a terrible number until someone or something has pointed out to you that *cough-cough* would be impressive....if you were a fucking walrus. Thank you, smart-ass nurse!

Professor Hanson: The Liberal Super Nova...

The Prof explains, and then destroys, the Liberal mindset with such great authority and eloquence that it almost brought a tear to my eye.

This man is a national treasure, and he should be heeded because he's one of the few pundits we have these days who talks some plain old common sense.

"There Are Vicious People Working for the President..."

So says Lanny Davis, ex-Clinton lapdog and all-around self-serving douchebag.

This sort of reinforces the idea that I've had -- expressed many times on this very page -- that Barack Obama doesn't really run anything. he simply leaves things to his subordinates, and then goes on vacation or attends another tony fundraiser. For him, being President of the United States is just one, great big ego trip, and the heavy lifting -- the real work associated with it -- is for someone else to do.

If this is a truly accurate description of the people this President has surrounded himself with, the Valerie Jarrets, the David Axelrods, the sort of petty little dictators who never forget a slight (real or imagined), and who are willing to use their positions and access to the Commander-in-Chump to settle old scores, then it's no wonder that the Obama Tidy Bowl Presidency has gone the way it has.

Big Changes Are Coming...

We here at the Asylum (that would be Me, Mr. Chap, and the Asylum Elves -- Lefty, Swifty, Butch and Stig) are pleased to announce that you can now follow this exquisite mental constipation on Facebook.

Very soon, you will also be able to use this new-fangled Twitter contraption the kids all have their panties in a bunch over to...Tweet, is it?...this nonsense to your family, friends, and all the people you really fucking hate. As long as you're going to waste your time reading this pablum you might as well avail yourself of the opportunity to annoy everyone you know with it.

Also coming soon, you'll be able to show your deepest gratitude and appreciation for all the effort, hard work and days of missing my meds that go into crafting only the finest of offensive missives by clicking on some goddamned ads, and getting me paid. And soon after that, there will be a Tip Jar added, because this Lunatic likes New York Strip and Marlboros -- and they don't grown on friggin' trees you know.

Any donation at all will be greatly appreciated, and also save you the trauma and trouble of an unannounced, midnight visit from Mr. Twinkie, our resident Ninja Elf, who still believes he's out in the bush fighting Charlie.

We'd like to thank the literally thousands of you who stop by here each and every month for your continued support of the Lunatic's Asylum, and ask you to continue patronizing us for all of your mentally diseased commentary needs.

Thanks much!
