This blog was started in May 2008 but didn't feature politics on it for about five months. By the end of October of that year with the election heating up we put up articles pushing hard against the Obama campaign. However, our efforts were futile in the face of all of the stupid people who voted for him.
We feature straight-up politics, investigative reporting, local Upstate NY coverage, interviews, reporting on Senatorial and Congressional races, the occasional satire, and up-to-date stories on Joe C.
