They are among a population of roving turkeys that has become a mess-making, traffic-stopping scourge to some residents, an unexpected bit of makeshift nature to others and a fraught project for government officials. Since dozens of the turkeys were rounded up and killed this summer, the birds’ future has become as a topic as heated as a Thanksgiving meat thermometer. (AP Photo/Kathy Willens)

Obamacare: Inside Chucky Schumer

2:37 PM 11/25/2014

Now that Jonathan Gruber has removed all doubt among anybody with an IQ above room temperature, at least one of Obama's former comrades can point out the obvious: Obamacare stinks. Chuck Schumer is attacking King Barry from the left, of course, but at least for once he's half-right.

I Stand Corrected RE: Obama’s Executive Amnesty

1:38 PM 11/24/2014

Boy, is my face red. I was silly enough to think that when the president of the United States stood up in front of everybody and tore the Constitution into little tiny pieces, it was a bad thing. But actually it's a really good thing, you guys!

Obama: Laws, Schmaws

11:50 AM 11/21/2014

You'll read and hear a lot of words expended on Obama's executive amnesty, but here's what it boils down to: If he can get what he wants via legal or quasi-legal means, fine. He'll hammer a square peg into a round hole until it just about fits, and then he'll claim the hole was square all along.

House Of Cosbys

10:01 AM 11/21/2014

The following comes from Channel101.com, a comedy site created by Dan Harmon (Community, being even tougher to work with than Chevy Chase, etc.) and Rob Schrab. It's a very silly cartoon about a guy who figures out how to make clones of Bill Cosby, each with some particular trait. Basically, it was an excuse for a bunch of nerds to do their crappy Cosby impressions, build a goofy story around it, and animate it. It was a loving (if twisted) homage to a comedian they'd all grown up with.

From 1969: Bill Cosby On ‘Spanish Fly’

12:55 PM 11/19/2014

I am officially an agnostic regarding the rape allegations against Bill Cosby. It doesn't sound good, and it's getting worse by the day, but I still don't know what to believe. I don't blame anybody else for making up their minds, but I haven't yet.

Grubergate Explained

5:21 PM 11/18/2014

It's only been a week since Jonathan Gruber, Obamacare's one-man wrecking crew, started sweating his gonads off. Almost every day, somebody uncovers yet another Gruber soundbite about how lying in service of Obamacare is awesome, and if you believed any of it, you're dumb. For this service and his other forms of fraud, the feds and several states have thrown millions of dollars at Gruber.
