Poll: 11% of tea partiers do their own dental work

The results of a new, exclusive HAB poll have been released including a shocking statistic: 11% of tea partiers do their own dental work. For an unknown reason, dentists - along with lawyers, public administrators, and psychologists - are among the tea partiers' least popular professions. And, the...

Why do we have a Christmas tree at the White House?

Lately, the rightwing noisemakers have been doing what they do best: making a fuss about a "Chairman Mao" ornament on the White House Christmas tree. Memo to the wingnuts: it's called artistic expression and irony. Don't expect those mouth-breathers to understand that. More importantly, lost in all...

About the Aspen Bear "cull"

[First of all, I'd like to apologize for what I said in an earlier version of this post. I've long been a fan of California's better Senator, Barbara Boxer. However, earlier today in this entry I posted her earthquake preparedness tips and mocked her concern for our well-being, going so far as to...

David Hasselhoff's "shaving accident"

It was no accident, and that should be obvious to everyone. What's not obvious is why. First, let's review. He was in a London gym bathroom when he hit his head on a chandelier, showering his arm with broken glass, his publicist, Judy Katz, said. Judy has done some work for me, and she's very good...

Republicans hate immigrants

"Why do Republicans hate Latinos?" Consuelo asked me that stunning question in such an innocent and noble fashion that I was momentarily speechless. For over two years Consuelo has been working for me and providing the hidden support that a site like Huff And Blow needs. While my tools are a...

Welcome to this week's wrap-up. In AU#12, George W. Bush rises seven more points from last month's record popularity of 72%.
