The weird get weirder; all about rubbers; farewell to Mr. Burke

Republican theocrats
When you consider the Democrats' disunity, ineptitude, and near-complete inability to present voters with a coherent program, it would seem that the pundits who have been predicting a Republican tsunami have a strong argument. But wait! Just in time, the GOP comes to the rescue by putting up a whole slew of Christian fundamentalist candidates.

Golden memories of the diamond

Big baseball anniversaries; not-so-E-Z pass; remebering Jimbo
We know the vast majority of Cool, Cool World readers do not have a personal memory of life on the planet earth, circa 1960, as they were not yet born.

The Looey Guv lunacy; a few endorsements; notable quotes; fond farewells

Fodder by the ton
"You guys have the easiest job in the world," our fellow Vo Dilunders often tell Phillipe and Jorge. "There’s so much political fodder in this state you have enough material for a lifetime."

Post-primary punditry; war games; holy howlers; words worth reading

The most wonderful (not) time of year: P+J's endorsements

Plus, pushing for a free press at CCRI; remembering Nathan
Yes, it's election time and, sad to say, all those ridiculous television ads that are designed to capture the "moron vote" (by far, the largest sector of the voting public) are in heavy rotation.

Holy Everglades, Batman!

A 'gator in the biggest little; angry Americans are still angry; a few great women
What a shock to see the discovery of an alligator at Sissons Pond in Portsmouth! Based on the photographs, Phillipe and Jorge reckon it has to be the largest reptile ever seen in the Biggest Little outside of the State House.

The Rhode Show in outer space

Crooning with Chris Young; Nazi talk; Clemens v. congress; the lure of the bucket
Easily the most otherworldly, bizarre event in this year's busy campaign season was the August 23 appearance on Channel 12's The Rhode Show by Providence mayoral candidate Christopher Young, renowned for his multiple bids for office in the Biggest Little under the banner of the Monster Raving Loony Party.

Cafeteria Americans

The mosque malarkey; constitutional showdown in Cranston
Congratulations to the national Republican Party. Dismissive of the Constitution and thoroughly addicted to whipping up fear and ignorance, they've now managed to get a rise out of the "booboisie" — H.L. Mencken's term for the clueless public — with their demagoguery on the New York "mosque" non-controversy.

Just a little bit of consistency

The loosey-goosey Gov; slipping with Scalia; keeping  church and state separate
We frequently think that Governor Donald "Laughing Boy" Carcieri is an ideologue who uses data merely to confirm his already strongly held reactionary views. (Actually, when it comes to social issues, his wife's strongly held reactionary views.)

Cutting taxes (and throats)

The GOP only cares about winning; the rich get even richers; notes from the road
"If there was such a thing as Chapter 11 for politicians, the Republican push to extend the unaffordable Bush tax cuts would amount to a bankruptcy filing . . . It is . . . unseemly for the Senate minority leader, Mitch McConnell to insist that the nation's wealthiest taxpayers be spared even a three-percentage-point rate increase."

Looking for a better idea

Lauding Linc; Pining for Jersey Shore ; the new First Couple; fighting for students' rights
P+J aren’t sure how many Vo Dilunduhs caught Matt Bai’s story on Linc Chafee in last week’s New York Times , but BeloJo political columnist Edward Fitzpatrick certainly did and, in his Tuesday column, he decided to do a little follow-up with the other gubernatorial candidates.

The obituary mambo

Passings near and far; Huzzah for Harley; Farewell, World Cup
As some of you may know, on a biweekly basis your superior correspondents chat with former mayor and current local talk radio titan, Vincent A. "The Bud-I" Cianci.

The moron minority

A bad choice of words; World Cup trivia; Excess in the US; new pool rules
One may excuse idiot bimbo Sarah Palin's violent "lock and load" analogies, because she's the abstinence professor who was so persuasive within her own household that her daughter got knocked up by some hirsute dogsledder whose fake vows of marriage were so transparent as to be ludicrous.

Grilling sessions

The senator is a supreme putz; General discontent; in praise of Byrd

Blowin’ up good!

Going ballistic on the fireworks bill; Baccari is at it again; more electioneering
Pretty shrewd. In a state that suffered through a horrific nightclub fire in 2003 that killed 100 people, the General Assembly pushed through legislation that some thought would permit people to buy the type of fireworks (called “gerbs,” which means they must resemble disgraced former Governor Ed “Gerber Baby” DiPrete) that led to the disaster inside the Station.

Knowing no shame

The disgraceful General Assembly; hail, do-gooders; and a plea for ProHo
The recent rush to adjourn the 2010 General Assembly session on the arbitrary date of June 10 was an affront to the Rhode Island citizenry and a low mark for the state’s politicians.

Pointing fingers in the Gulf

The disaster was waiting to happen; kudos for Grover; and gangsta talk
Now that we have enlisted the aid of James Cameron, Kevin Costner, Betty White, and the Olneyville New York System Oil, Olestra, and Anal Leakage Institute to help plug the BP underwater gusher in the Gulf of Mexico, let’s take a look at what is really behind this debacle.

Messi situations

A giant tampon for BP; plus, the World Cup, and a big bash in Pawtuxet
Can’t you just imagine the high-level meetings taking place daily in the British Petroleum war room these days, full of top execs and engineers, neither of whom speak the others’ language, or have even close to the same concerns?

Hire us now, Ms. Gist!

Will tap dance for free!
Wow! Bow-wow! How do we get a job to write a speech for state education commissioner Deborah Gist for a cool $10,000?
