Mitt Romney - What a Party Pooper!

After South Carolina, it looked like there was going to be a real interesting race between Mitt and Newt, but then Mitt had to go and spoil the fun by being so d*ckish and by buying his way to a (likely) Florida win. Watch Jon Stewart as he so aptly annotates the latest play-by-play action in the GOP primary game--and Mitt's TKO of Newt (not for kids).

State of the Union

I just found out that the Obama2012 campaign is offering his (now famous) impromptu a cappella performance of Al Green's hit "Let's Stay Together" as a Smartphone/iPhone free ringtone! Cool!

Today also happens to be the evening of President Obama's State of the Union speech and I wanted to quote one very important statement he made: "We don't begrudge financial success in this country. We admire it. When Americans talk about folks like me paying my fair share of taxes, it's not because they envy the rich. It's because they understand that when I get tax breaks I don't need and the country can't afford, it either adds to the deficit, or somebody else has to make up the difference - like a senior on a fixed income; or a student trying to get through school; or a family trying to make ends meet. That's not right. Americans know it's not right."

So think about that next time Mitt Romney talks condescendingly to everyone about his wealth and/or the less than 14% tax rate he pays (as so aptly delineated by Jon Stewart)

What Will They Think of Next?!

We had to see this coming...Ron Paul Action Figures! Somebody is probably making a killing (while thanking the Supreme Court for their decision on Citizens United)!

The President is looking pretty jolly about the SC GOP Primary win by Newt Gingrich, wouldn't you say? :)

I did not create this image. I found it floating around the interspherical net-tubes. :)

Had to share it, though.

A Possible Debate Between President Obama and Newt?

This isn't necessarily laugh-out-loud hilarious (except maybe in the minds of REAL political junkies like me), but this article by Josh Marshall of TalkingPointsMemo summarizes the whole Newt-winning-SC situation so well that it actually made me a little giddy at the thought of such a debate. ;-)

Holy Guacamole! Newt Won South Carolina!

Just a few minutes after the South Carolina polls have closed, Newt Gingrich is the projected winner! You know what that means, right? LOTS & LOTS of great fun and humor in the days ahead for Jolly Politix!!! :-D

Need a Primer that Explains the Results of the Supreme Court's Ridiculous Citizens United Decision?

Let's Stay Together (I'm So In Love With You)

What a perfect way to launch this blog!  Thank you, President Obama, for the love.  :)

I'll be posting jolly political happenings that I think are fun-filled (or wickedly funny) that I want to share with everyone (although more often than not, it will include humor that's geared towards adults).

Lots of laughter in store, so check back often . . . or better yet, hit the 'follow' button.
