Jollyroger admits that he did work his way through stripper school as a lawyer, but since graduating he has rehabilitated himself, and profits no longer from the misfortune of his brothers, but from the lust of his sisters instead. He is currently on the 60 day DL (too fat); Until he is called back up to the show, he is temping as an inventor.

We are left with only a few hours within which to exercise unrestrained speculation as to "the (tax) horror which dare not speak its name".
Level of income, of course, has been bruited as cause for embarassment.
Obvious high roller lifestyle deductions will cause the odd blush.
Might the annual act of self-denial represented by parting with many millions of dollars be regarded as so extreme as to make you potentially seen to be a cult-addled and superstition-ridden nutjob?
Newt Gingrich, like Tide and Coke is new and improved.
We learn, inter alia, from this evening's debate that he has raised his performance as a health care policy analyst.
When jacked up by Santorum over his decade of support for an individual mandate to buy insurance, Newt credited (and tacitly solicited credit for) the onset of new wisdom. [Read more]
By now you will have heard that included in the tumble of new disclosures (I pay close to (how close? Are you missing above or below?) 15%) from Romney's cabinet of plutocrat horrors, is the tidbit that his tax planning relies heavily on Cayman Island accounts.
(I fear being tarred forensically with those enemies of freedom who hector those who complain about warrantless surveillance, but, here goes). I ask Romney (as will we all with one voice),

We are a country that cheerfully permits over one million of its children to experience in any year the terror, the existential fear, the insecurity, the permanent scars that must of necessity flow from forced eviction from their homes.
Given our collective assent to the nightmare into which these, our children, are plunged, it should, perhaps, not surprize that when we also, as a society, declare it our firm and considered intention to intervene with a housing program so that the childrens' time of shelter living will be kept to a minimum, we run the program as if it were designed by Franz Kafka. [Read more]
Talk bout hoist on his own petard!
So vain is Newt about his intellectual aspirations, he actually committed a moment of intellectual honesty.
Once the logjam was broken by his consideration that perhaps 90 instead of 180 million skimmed off the bust out would have been "enough", Newt has gone full tilt Socialist, talking about "common" goals, and "common" good.
Two words that have been banished from American political discourse for decades are "enough" and "common". [Read more]
Romney takes umbrage at the idea that under him Bain Capital took the money and ran, so to speak.
His pearl-clutching conveniently ellides the many ways in which leveraged buy outs and mob bust outs are similar business models.
Take, for instance, Ampad, where by borrowing against the assets of a to be acquired property (herein the "leverege" part of a levereged buyout), Bain took 100 million in fees and equity out of a company while restructuring and taking it public. [Read more]
As the runaway train that is the Republican primary lurches south out of New Hampshire, let us review the likely field of play:
Mitt's win (
36 38%) is insufficiently assertive to make a dent in SC where he leads Gingrich only 27-23.
Ron Paul (
24 23%) is easily in til' Tampa and maybe beyond.
Santorum can go into haberdashery full time and his SC voters (18% will scatter to Gingrich and Huntsman) [Read more]
Dispatch from the siege and fall of the Patriarchy
Ever since human females, alone among mammals, evolved the ability to hide from their reproductive partners the onset of estrus, human males have responded with varying levels of paternity insecurity syndrome.
