Make-believe Maverick, John McCain

Wow. I always thought he was better than this, but clearly John McCain is a different person altogether – a flip-flopper, a mysogenistic, womanising opportunist who will say whatever he thinks will push his cause (himself) forward the farthest. The article has many quotes from people who worked with him, trained with him, flew with […]

Sebastian Bourdais robbed by disgusting Ferrari Stewards idiocy

You have to be sorry for Frenchman Sebastian Bourdais, four-times winner of the US Champ Car series and latest victim of the flatulent FIA Stewards’ Ferrari favouritism at Japan’s marvellous Fujiyama circuit.

Maybe Congressmen are so rich they don’t need a rescue package

A friend of mine who is into these things spent some time researching the wealth of America’s national politicians. The poorest was a multi-millionaire. We all know that John McCain is so rich that he owns so many houses he actually didn’t know how many he had when asked. And these aren’t small houses either […]
