What America Needs Right Now

Today is Election Day in the land of the free and home of the brave.  Yesterday, you read my endorsement of Mitt Romney, but some of my friends told me that the post seemed out of place.  I figured it was just because Barack the Maleficent Magnificent has plenty of support in this corner of Al Gore’s Interwebs, but they made it clear that it was the tone and not the content.  Therefore, let me be the lone voice of reason funded by private equity earnings, not redistributed soshulist wages like the librul gents behind this blog.

Enter The Lovely Miss XXX

Hi guys & galz,

I’m XXX, a long time reader of this tacky sleaze but a first time contributor, so please be gentle!

I wonder about that sometimes, like basically the entire ~4 months that the state legislature is in session.

Why are you associating with these characters?
Because I’ve seen people reading it and heard people talking about it. I hadn’t really thought of contributing, but I genuinely believe that some of their recent stuff would (with some editing, LOL) be worthy of some of the better comedy blogs/websites in Amerika.
