I think I might have found a way to help the Republicans stop the shutdown over Obamacare. How about if President Obama gave away a free gun and NRA membership with every Obamacare policy sold?


How about this: The Democrats will not require the implementation of the metric system for another century in exchange for ending the shutdown.


If the Republicans spent like drunken sailors for eight years, I wish President Obama and the Democrats would do the same. Drunken sailors spend their own money.


Obama is using his bully pulpit to destroy the Republican Party. Then he and his right-hand man, Harry Reid, will have everything to themselves. Long live the king – and the court jester.


House Speaker John Boehner: Stop monkeying around. Simply vote on the bill and argue afterward. When you kidnap somebody, people want the person first. Then you get the money. We are in debt because we are at war forever.


How is it that Obama can believe that we can continue to borrow all we want? If I did that, the banks would laugh in my face. Spending must stop.


When Obama promised to “transform America,” little did we know what he meant was the intentional destruction of the country. From the economy to the out-of-control debt to health care to his disastrous foreign policy, he is accomplishing his goal in record time. This isn’t merely the governance of fools. It is the progressive agenda.


Republicans saying they don’t want to shut down the government is like the domestic abuser saying he doesn’t want to hit his wife. “She made me do it.”


I’m confused. Is it the United States or Failed States?


The best way to break the deadlock in Washington is simply a combination of common sense, research and the upcoming election.


Obama apologized to the American people Tuesday for the fiscal face-off, and I apologize to the American people for voting for him.


Proof you live in Kansas: Greenwich is pronounced “green-witch.” El Dorado is pronounced “El-door-ay-do.” Roof is pronounced “ruff.” Hail is pronounced “hell.” And, last but not least, Cheney is pronounced “Cheeney.”


I’m not fat. I’m just experiencing thermal expansion due to global warming.


Gee, the arena can’t keep the state from moving out of the Finney State Office Building downtown? Well, there goes that theory about how an arena will draw business to the city’s core. Too bad we spent more than $200 million to learn that.


Kris Kardashian and Bruce Jenner have announced their separation. I don’t know if I will be able to sleep tonight. Please hand me a towel to wipe up my sarcasm.
