McCain is a guy up for endless war,
Huckabee's radical religious rightwingery
Romney's an empty suit created by consultants,
War? Religious right? Corporate cronies?
Straight talk? Folksiness? An MBA?
Welcome to the Bush League :
It makes George W. Bush all the more impressive
But give them time to grow...
Toast to contentious conservative candidates

As if we don't already know, today is Trent Lott Appreciation Day. While this is a great step forward for mankind, Lott, featured above rocking his signature hip hop dance move, deserves so much more than one day of Appreciation. Because Lott is so much more than a mere mortal and senator. Did you know he was also
Which is way I anoint today, not only Trent Lott Appreciation Day, but Trent Lott Community Service Day. Because we must, and can help Trent. Which is why I'm starting the Trent Lott Porch Reconstruction Fund. Together, we will rebuild that porch, stone by stone, brick by brick. And we won't stop until that wrap around Victorian porch is standing once again. Because a man's second home's porch is his castle.
Most of all, I look forward to a day when we won't even need to have a "Trent Lott Appreciation Day." Because everyday, should, and will, be "Trent Lott Appreciation Day."

Liberal Drinkers, whomever you are for, go vote in the Primaries!
Then, tonight, revel as the results are revealed while downing a drink to democracy at a Super Fat Tuesday party.
Today is Election Day + Mardi Gras = SUPER FAT TUESDAY, a national night of gatherings.
From New York City to Colorado Springs, Nebraska to New Jersey, dozens of events will bring people together to treat election day as it should be treated -- as a holiday.
In New York, we'll be celebrating with comedians, special guests and Eating Liberally treats at The Tank. Each event is different -- though our Super Fat Tuesday site has offered bingo cards, drinking games and betting pools.
So get-out-the-vote, then celebrate the vote -- happy Super Fat Tuesday.

McCain and Romney were in Florida, going on the pilgrimage to the sacred site where Bush stole the election in 2000. (All Republicans must make this visit at least once during their lives.)While in Florida, Romney and McCain also participated in a Republican debate and their own debate over who was a better conservative, as each one tried to prove that the other one was more "liberal," a better person and had functioning heart.

I, for one, am THRILLED to learn that though the invasion of Iraq has been a humanitarian, geo-political, economic, death and ethnic cleansing-triggering disaster, these sacrifices were not in vain. Because, although we were not greeted with roses as liberators, at least we can rest assured that the people who started the war got something out of it. No, I'm not referring to no bid contracts for Halliburton and Chevron, silly. That's hardly breaking news! I'm talking about something even better! TOTALLY AWESOME SOUVENIRS for Bush and Cheney. These are the types of souvenirs that literally have Bush and Cheney's names on them. If I didn't know better I'd think they were custom made! It turns out The moribund Vice- President keeps a piece of the house where Abu Musab al Zarqawi died on display in his house. I can only assume this piece complements Cheney's already lovely collection of architectural details of the dead, which Lyn proudly displays on the family mantle. And our cow-boots wearing, tough talking* Commander in Chief has his own "wish you were here" souvenir: a pistol U.S.soldiers pulled out of Saddam Hussein's hands, when he was liberated from his spider hole, a perfect addition to Bush's growing cowboy dress-up collection, which no longer fits in the Lincoln Bedroom.

The President delivered a State of the Union
A candidate ran on nothing
A party doesn't stand for anything
But Obama & Clinton -- who'd both been criticized
And Edwards, in dropping out, made one last case
A reminder to all: stand for what you believe in,
And a warning: if a politician gives a speech
Ask 9iu11iani...he's now got the time to answer.
Raise a glass to the ideas Edwards raised

Given the events in Florida, the city that gave Rudy to the world, is elated to welcome him home...because at least it means he won't be going to DC.
THE RUDY RETIREMENT PARTY
Share the sweet taste of hubris-laid-low
Rudy has climaxed his political power play

The State of the Union is that peculiar time of year when President Bush's advisors get "creative": Mars! Human-animal hybrids! Hydrogen-powered cars! And could forget the classic uranium-from-Niger?
What will Bush's contribution be this year? A distraction or a deception? A lie or a laugh? While we can't know everything he'll say, we know some of it: which is what allows our friends to create the ever-dependable "State of the Union Drinking Game."
Whether you're sipping at "Freedom," taking a shot at references to Middle East peace, or gulping when the camera shows Ted Kennedy, drinking is just about the only way to watch Bush's Last Dance.
And if you want to watch with friends, check out whether your local Drinking Liberally chapters is hosting a watch party (in New York, we'll be at DCTV in Chinatown).
Make your predictions in the comments, download the game, and get good and liquored up for an evening that recognizes all good things come to an end...and so will the Bush Administration.
