Feingold goes down in last stand

Tea Party candidate Ron Johnson has defeated incumbent Democrat Russ Feingold to become the next senator of Wisconsin.

Feingold was considered one of the most bi-partisan guys in the Senate, teaming up with the likes of John McCain to author campaign finance reform, the McCain-Feingold Act.

But it was his unwavering support for President Obama on issues such as healthcare that ultimately led to his defeat.

Taking over is Johnson, a political novice and successful businessman.

Alas, we’ll miss Christine O’Donnell

The magic of Tea Party Express candidate Christine O’Donnell was not enough to overcome Democratic challenger Chris Coons.

Coons easily trounced O’Donnell to become the next senator for Delaware.

It’s too bad, because O’Donnell provided more comedic fodder than her boring political opponent.

The Democrats, however, must be happy. They were expecting to run a competitive race against Republican establishment candidate Mike Castle, until he lost to everyone’s favorite anti-masturbation candidate.

Sigh, we’ll miss O’Donnell.

Wall Street gorges on record bonuses

Guest starring David Abitbol as Bank Worker.

America is still reeling from the Great Recession, but the people responsible for this mess have opted to give themselves a record-high $144 billion or more in compensation and benefits for 2010.

To put that figure in perspective, that’s the amount President Bush asked Congress to spend on a stimulus package in 2008.

To be fair, Wall Street revenue is expected to rise slightly, and most of the big banks have paid the US government back the money it used to bail them out of the financial crisis. But they’re also benefiting from the low interest rates the Federal Reserve is using to stimulate the economy, which they wrecked. And now they’ve brought us “Foreclosure-gate.”

So why do these people need to have their tax breaks extended?

Write-in campaign results in Alaskan nail-biter

Alaskans are in for a long wait for a final result after write in ballots topped the list in the Senate race between the Tea Party’s Joe Miller and Lisa Murkowski.

Murkowski waged a write-in campaign after losing to Tea Party candidate Joe Miller in the primary. This meant she had to teach everyone how to spell her name in addition to filling in an oval thingy on the ballot.

Write-in votes exceed total votes gathered by either Miller or the guy who ran on the Democratic ticket. So now comes the long count, but by the time the result is known no one outside of Alaska will likely care.

A special look at the 10 US midterms

The year, the Donkey got stomped by the Elephant. As the polls predicted, there was a bumper crop of GOP victories. The Republicans regained control of the House, while the Democrats managed to hang onto the Senate.

In Nevada, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid eventually won out over Tea Party challenger Sharron Angle.

In Washington’s senate race, the race is still too close to call between incumbent Democrat Patty Murray and Republican challenger Dino Rossi.

Republican Rand Paul took the Senate seat in Kentucky, beating Democratic opponent Jack Conway.

In Alaska, write-in ballots could put Lisa Murkowski on top.

In California, Meg Whitman’s money wasn’t enough to buy her the California governorship. Likewise, fellow Silicon Valley alum Carly Fiorina failed to win her senate race.

In Delaware, Tea Partier Christine O’Donnell was trounced by Democrat Chris Coons. In New York, Tea Partier Carl Paladino lost by a wide margin to Democrat Andrew Cuomo.

Chinese Professor (Animated Parody)

Citizens Against Government Waste have released one of the finest pieces of ‘yellow peril’ propaganda since Sax Rohmer began publishing Fu Manchu novels.

Wow! They really nailed us! Yes, we’ll laugh at your demise … we’ll chortle and cluck with glee when it comes time to work off your slave debt.

That’s why, like the CAGW’s “Chinese Professor” ad, all of our content at Next Media Animation is in Mandarin. When we crack the whip over your heads and yell “你回去工作!,” we want you to understand what we’re saying, see?

We are so delighted that you are so confident in China’s ascendancy. Lack of democracy or human rights … A creaking financial system … riots and social instability … We’re sure all those problems will be worked out by 2030 when it’s time to assume the leasehold on America!!

But until then, all you really need to know about the US-China relationship can be understood in our evil, Fu Manchu ‘stache-twisting laugh.
