WTF Twitter?

31May12

Normally I don’t like complaining about stuff here, outside of politics, but I’m at a loss. My twitter account (@eyedesertblog) has been suspended. Honestly, I’m not sure why. Looking at my last tweets over the last few days, I see none that are “truly offensive.” The closest one I can think of is when I […]


This has to be one of the funniest and “in your face” interviews I’ve ever seen. I don’t care for “birthers,” but Donald Trump vs. CNN’s Wolf Blitzer was epic. Still, Donald, please stop going crazy over the birth certificate thing. Especially if you’re going to be one of Mitt Romney’s biggest supporters. But I […]

Did you really have to turn the “Did You Know” sections of the official White House biographies of Calvin Coolidge, Herbert Hoover, Harry S. Truman and Ronald Reagan into promotion pieces for the current President? Or Jimmy Carter, Richard Nixon and, shocker of all shocks, George W. Bush. I realize there are more important things […]
