In the Transparent Age American’s are quickly finding out that Mark’s Twain’s adage that Congress is the only distinct criminal class in this country is as true now as it was in Samuel Clemens’ Gilded Age.

Don’t come at me with your faux OWS outrage about greedy bankers. Your guys- the Soroses, the Buffetts, the Franks, the Corzines, the UAW’s Kings- are the problem with Wall Street not the solution.

That liberals decided of their own accord that they would crown April Fools' Day--forever after-- as Obamacare Day, is again another irony that seems to be lost on people who believe that a variety selection of chilled cheeses is much more important than having a variety selection of competent doctors.

This is a country noticeably lacking in dangerous men right now. And women. And blacks. And Hispanics. And the unemployed. And that lack of danger is a danger in itself.

Fortunately, Democrats have got the great constitutional lawgiver, the greatest president in the history of the Milky Way and former Accidental College two-time student of the week winner to help us overturn 238 years of history and common sense.

It always pains me when I have to point out to good, faithful conservatives that they didn’t invent the Constitution even if some of them just discovered it six years ago.

If it weren’t for the "selfie" Obama would have no presidency at all.

My suspicions are always heightened when someone from a benighted and enlightened Entitlement class suddenly discovers the “workingman.”

Yes… I attend all Illuminati meetings when they are held in my district. We meet in a private room in Applebees, with Ricky Bobby, Oliver Stone and occasionally the disembodied voice of JFK chairing the event.

The good news is that if you’re independently wealthy and just want a job to keep you busy, Obama’s economy is for you. Which, by the way, is an apt description of President Obama’s own job situation.

With an administration like this we ought change their slogan to: “Working so hard, so you don’t have to... because getting you jobs would be kind of hard.”

After all the snafus and mistakes and bad intentions on healthcare reform from this administration, I'm waiting for a plague of frogs and locusts-- with water running red out of the jugs-- to be discovered in a hidden codicil of Obamacare.

It's an indictment not just to tax hikes, but to Illinois, Chicago, Rahm Emanuel, Jesse Jacksons-- senior and junior-- anyone named Daley, practically any Illinois governor not indicted in my life time—we’ll call them unindicted co-conspirators-- and our current president of the United States (Present!)

Electric cars aren't new. They've been around for 100 years, just like socialist governments. Only the Democrats would insist on taking two things that have failed so miserably for four or five generations and call them new ideas.

While the doomsday date for the final destruction of mankind due to global warming gets pushed back farther and farther, I’m wondering if any of these WeatherNazis actually understand human history.

At what point do liberals get tired of defending bad policy, poor implementation and sloppy intellectualism when the only weapon, it seems, that their Democrat leaders have is buffoonery?
