Nuking Politics is currently accepting questions for an interview with darkhorse presidential candidate Stav Blackmane.
Blackmane’s only request along those lines is that we “not throw him softballs, unless they’re funny”. I’m guessing “briefs or boxers” would be out of bounds (I don’t know, and I really don’t want to know, well I kinda do), but a good setup line would probably be OK. However, I would prefer the questions be serious and difficult.
If you want your questions to actually be considered for submission, leave them in the comments to this post at Nuking Politics. If you leave them in the comments here at IMAO, they’ll probably get ignored.

America’s wealth is not an inventory of goods; it is an organic entity, a fragile pulsing fabric of ideas, expectations, loyalties, moral commitments, visions. To vivisect it for redistribution is to kill it…. [G]overnment managers of complex systems of wealth soon find that they are administering an industrial corpse, a socialized Solyndra…. The belief that wealth consists not chiefly in ideas, attitudes, moral codes, and mental disciplines but definable static things that can be seized and redistributed — that is the materialist superstition.
Keln of Nuking Politics picked his favorite punchlines to “To celebrate its 1 year anniversary, Occupy Wall Street…“.

If you did, you should probably email him about becoming a guest blogger there.
If you didn’t, he’s got another straight line for you to practice on.
Keep trying. No one likes a quitter.

And now, a moment with Joe Biden…
BIDEN: …There was a man named Levon Gray that came up to me earlier today. What a great guy. And he told me how, under Barack Obama, he was able to secure a grant to start his own company. True story. He had lost his job and had been out of work for quite some time, but with the help of a government grant he started his very own business, just last year. He told me, “Some people say that the economy isn’t growing, but Joe, I’m here to tell ya, it is.” He told me how he developed a product using a few simple chemicals, and was able to launch this small company out of his little two-car garage, and that his product helps literally thousands of people. He employs local men and women who have been unable to find work… some of them had been out of work for months, some for years. And he provides opportunities for young people looking to earn some money, for some of them it’s their first job. He sends them out into his community and the surrounding area to sell his product. He says he’s named his product “Crystal,” and he tells me that Crystal provides an alternative to cigarette smoking for thousands of mainly low-income Americans. So, here he’s providing jobs for people who are, in turn, helping their neighbors to quit such an awful habit. And, that’s beautiful, man. That’s what it’s all about. That’s Barack Obama’s America… people helping people…
This has been a moment with Joe Biden.
So I didn’t think it was that bad me being gone for like three weeks. Harvey, Basil, Keln, and Mr. Right seemed to have done a great job keeping the blog lively while I only stopped in from time to time to plug my book (BTW, buy my book). So what did you think? Please tell me in the comments. I’ll make it multiple choice to make it simpler.
A) I missed Frank so much, I stopped reading all those week.
B) Frank was gone?
C) I liked it better when Frank was gone. In fact, I might stop reading IMAO now that he’s back.
D) Because of my sever abandonment issues, I don’t think I’ll ever be right again even though Frank is back.
E) I thought that Harvey was Frank.
F) I just came here to buy some handles. Am I at the wrong site?
G) I don’t even know why Harvey let’s Frank blog anymore.
H) I missed the question, but I just want to say how great Frank’s new book is and that everyone should buy it.
Thanks for your feedback!
Works like this: I feed you Moon Nukers a straight line, and you hit me with a punch line in the comments.
When asked about rising gas prices, Obama…
So the left is freaking out over Romney’s 47% statement, and they’re convinced since they’re freaking out, other people than left-wing weirdos must care. This is pretty unlikely. So far, they’ve called a number of things Romney has said “gaffes” but they haven’t moved the polls any. So what could Romney say that would actually sink his campaign? Here’s some examples I thought of:
GAFFES THAT WOULD SINK THE ROMNEY CAMPAIGN
“It shouldn’t be a crime for me to murder people with less money than me. Especially if they’re gay.”
“I sure love saying the n-word.”
“Let’s not be so hasty as to throw out all of Hitler’s ideas.”
“From now on, Ann Romney will wear a burka so that maybe the Middle East will like us.”
“How do you like my new mustache? It’s awesome; I think it makes me look like Stalin.”
“If elected president, I will lead the country in whatever direction the sacred leader of Mormonism, Mormonthor, tells me to.”
“Let me take back my statements supporting Israel; I didn’t realize that country was so full of Jews.”
“I’ve decided for campaign music we’ll be using nothing but Nickelback.”
“I’m just going to go ahead and say what Todd Akin never had the guts to: Women love rape.”
“Back in 2008, I voted for Obama.”
So basically we’ve returned to a pre-9/11, mentality but kept the much more annoying air travel security?
So Obama is running on his four year record of uniting the country?
So Obama is discussing the murdered ambassador with Letterman?
Watching Revolution pilot. If all the electricity disappeared, I’d regale kids with tales of video games I played.
And if there were no electricity, we’d have to send tweets by ravens like in times of old. Dark wings, dark words comparing you to Hitler.

From this post:
Excerpt from: “Dreams of My Father’s Relatives” by E. Warren
…and I vividly remember the time he threw me astride that magnificent painted pony that stood outside the trading post named Woolworth’s. I gripped the mane of that stallion like Mikey Moore holding onto a Big Mac. My dyed bonde hair almost moved in the calm air and I just knew all the other little bigoted white children were insanely jealous of this Cherokee maiden. I gave out a war whoop so loud people coming out of the store stopped and stared. I could literally see their racist thoughts in balloons above their heads. Then one of them said in a nasty, condescending tone “Hey lady, those coin-operated ponies are just for the kids”…
