Vegas employer fires 22 because Obama won election

Remember how we posted a few weeks about about the letter Westgate Resorts’ David Siegel sent to his employees filled with thinly veiled threats to fire people if Obama was re-elected? Well, this Las Vegas businessman who called into his local radio station claims to have one-upped Siegel. Like Siegel, he also told his...

Binders Full of Burgers

Just when we were starting to find the last days winding down to Election Day completely unappealing and unappetizing, we found this website, Binders Full of Burgers. It measures the U.S. presidential campaigns in infographics illustrated in ketchup, mustard, burgers, hot dogs and fries. Suddenly, the fact that Obama spent $457 million in advertising...

Free shots and more at Tears & Cheers: Orlando Weekly’s Election Party

Whether you’re buying the tense-faced Everyman-isms and vagaries of Republican Mitt Romney (Red Rumble Romney shots for you!) or the professorial deconstructions and juiced-up practicalities of Democrat Barack Obama (Obama Mama shots for you!), you’d be wise to join us for the point when they all blur together at Bullitt Bar.

Let me tell you how it will be… Scott Randolph replaces deceased Earl K. Wood for Democratic TAXMAN

Updated below with response from the Jim Huckeba campaign. For all of the bizarro grave-dancing that did and didn’t occur when 96-year-old Earl K. Wood passed away early Monday – thereby becoming unlikely to fulfill his duties as Orange County Tax Collector should he have won in November – there was an equal amount...

47 percent income tax map

By now you’ve heard that Mother Jones magazine outed Romney for his rather callous and off-the-mark comments about the 47 percent of Americans who allegedly pay no income tax.

Romney’s Bain problem may run through Central Florida in a pretty gruesome way

OK, so yesterday we were all atwitter about the Obama For America press call we were on in which Obama’s deputy campaign manager Stephanie Cutter dropped the “felony” bomb with regard to Mitt Romney’s now questionable involvement with outsource kings Bain Capital. That bit of campaign red meat came via an explosive piece of...
