Romney Video Points to Heart of GOP Disdain

Recently, the left-leaning news outlet, Mother Jones, reported a story about Mitt Romney that included several video clips taken of him (unknown to him) at a fundraiser. Most of the clips are fairly benign, with him hitting many of the fiscally conservative talking points. But in one clip in particular, he gets pretty personal and [Read More...]

Identity Theft: When Politicians Hijack Jesus’ Name

Denver-20120907-00267

Gotta say I’m a big fan of this church sign at my father-in-law’s church: It’s time to STOP: Using faith, Jesus and the Bible as a political platform; Cherry-picking from the Gospel based on what polls well; Claiming Jesus would be so myopic to identify with either of our major political parties; Calling yourself a [Read More...]

Dear Ann Coulter: Stop Making Sense

ann-coulter

I’m telling you, these ultra-conservative spokespeople are gonna ruin my reputation if they keep putting stuff out there I agree with. First, Pat Robertson and I see eye-to-eye on the decriminalization of marijuana. Then doomsday prophet Harold Camping concedes that his predictions for the end of the world not only were off the mark, but [Read More...]

Anger, Fear and the GOP Implosion

It seems lately that the Republican party is painting itself into an angry corner that it can’t find its way out of. Rush Limbaugh’s recent loose-lipped “slut” comment is a clarion call to his significant conservative base to forge ahead in a direction that leads nowhere good. Basically, he cast negative, sexually charged aspersions at [Read More...]

Ron Paul: A Bad Lip Reading Tribute

So I got a little bit of heat for the last one of these I posted, but this is definitely one of my favorites. I just can’t help myself!!! Something about Ron Paul telling himself “I’m pretty, I’m pretty, I’m pretty,” over and over again kills me every time. [Read more...]

GOP Nostalgia is a Symptom of Privilege

There’s an awful lot of talk in the political forum lately about restoring America to some nostalgic state of yesteryear, when supposedly everything was better. If we could only get back there, everything would be all right again. I guess that depends on who you ask, doesn’t it? Author Melissa Harris-Perry recently appeared on “The [Read More...]

Mitt Romney’s Bad Lip Reading Send-up

In honor of the South Carolina primaries, I thought I’d post another “Bad Lip Reading” video, this time of front-runner Mitt Romney. This one may be even funnier than the Herman Cain video. And for those who don’t seem to click with these, no, they are not real. Someone watches these clips and makes up [Read More...]

None is Saved While One Still Suffers

For some, the central message of Christianity is about personal salvation. What it is exactly that we need saving from is debatable, depending on who you ask: from the fires of hell; from ourselves, from an apocalyptic end to the world as we know it. But I’ve been thinking about this quite a lot lately [Read More...]
