From VANITY FAIR:
The race for the absolute top-spot in Republican fundraising is heating up this week, as contenders for the Republican National Committee chairmanship seem more eager than ever to oust the organization’s current head, Michael Steele. Yesterday, at a debate organized by a Tea Party group, four likely contenders for the chair denounced Steele’s spotty record of fiscal and fundraising mismanagement. While it remains to be seen whether Steele will seek a second term, many of his presumptive adversaries have already formally declared their intentions to depose him.
I don’t know about you, kids, but I think Michael Phathead Steele should run again and should be reelected. Why? Glad you asked. For one thing, nobody can rock a Carmen Miranda hat like Phathead…
The Rethuglicans are always trying to reach out to the Hispanic population, and how could they not love that?

Hey, kids, Chanukah starts tonight, and the War on Christmas is just around the corner, so those of you who still have jobs, can afford to buy some presents, and have a few Rethuglican kids on your gift list, you might want to start thinking about what kind of toys you might want to purchase. Well, you know that I’m always here to help! This afternoon, I visited a store with lots of different toys to choose from…
How much more American can you get than fast food? Just don’t have to get all bent out of shape over condiments like Laura Ingraham, Sean Hannity, and Mark Steyn do…

I’m watching the Food Channel at the moment, so I thought we’d continue on with our exploration of Rethuglican cuisine. I thought we could take a look at cereal. After all, everyone loves cereal, just ask Mikey!
I bet it tastes even better when topped with Chuckleberries.

I just got home, and I have nothing prepared, so I’m dusting off another American Street oldie goldie. Since Captain Underpants is being a total dick about DADT, I picked out a post about him. It was originally posted on March 19, 2008.
Hey kids! Anyone else watch Dancing With the Stars? Yeah, I admit it, I have watched every season. I am just getting over the nightmares I had last season after seeing the flesh on Wayne Newton’s face stretched so tight that, every time he raised his eyebrows, his manboobs jiggled. So anyway, I tune in to watch this season, and there’s Priscilla Presley with so much botox and collagen in her face that she has to wear this around her neck! Seriously, these people are so friggin’ rich, and they still can’t afford a plastic surgeon who doesn’t make people look like The Joker from Batman? She couldn’t even smile!!! I’m not kidding! I bet she has to eat through a straw, because I don’t think her jaw can move enough to chew! Seriously, you have to watch just to see her face!
But I digress. This isn’t about Dancing With the Stars, Mr. Danke Schoen, or Elvis’s ex. So what is this about? Damned if I remember. Hold on, I think I wrote it down somewhere……Oh, yeah!! It’s about
Captain Underpants John McCain! Dancing John McCain!
It all started back in April of 2007. I reported on
Captain Underpants’s John McCain’s trip to Baghdad. That’s when I first spotted his propensity for dancing.
(You can find a larger version and the song he was dancing to here
. Go ahead, sing along. I’ll wait for you.)
Trip the light fantastic with me, and I will show you more of
Captain Underpants’s John McCain’s twinkletoes, as well as some advice I have for him.

In this last post about this round of the 1st Semi-Regular Macaca Awards, let’s remember what the award is all about. Once again, I will borrow the words of my handsome and talented collaborator, Tengrain, of Mock, Paper, Scissors:
It seems so long ago that George Allen uttered the words that moved a generation (and sank his political career), and forever seared the word Macaca into our collective brain.
And so we honor all that is appalling in American Politics with the First Semi-Regular Macaca Awards.

Welcome our special presenters who will be handing out the awards.
