Rising in the charts

I have had a few days off due to some family commitments so things have been quiet in the world of Malpoetry, but there is cause for small celebration today. Our ranking among Wikio political blogs has risen from a position in the 400′s to numb...

Buffoon of the Week: Nancy Pelosi

Democrats can be summed up in one word: D-E-L-U-S-I-O-N-A-L. The queen of the deluded? Minority Leader and fired House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, of course.

We Are All In the Matrix
