National Review Writer: Repeal Women’s Suffrage

Joining Vox Day and Jesse Lee Patterson, Michael Walsh at the National Review Online thinks we should take the right to vote away from women. Mario Loyola wrote a column calling that referred to alcohol prohibition, but mistakenly said that was the 19th amendment (it was the 18th, repealed by the 21st). But Walsh says we should repeal the 19th, which gave women the right to vote, as well: … [Read more...]

Wingnuts: Obama Building Black Army

The far right has always been strongly correlated with racism and sometimes that spills over into the public statements of wingnuts, especially when they're talking to each other. Larry Pratt of Gun Owners of America (a group that thinks the NRA is a bunch of weak-kneed liberals) went on a radio show with Greg Howard and they surmised that Obama is building a black army to fight the white insurgents who will fight the impending attempt to seize their guns. … [Read more...]

Dumbass Quote of the Day

An Indiana Senate committee last week passed a bill that would require trans-vaginal ultrasounds for women seeking abortions -- not one, but two of them. Indiana Right to Life legislative director Sue Swayze sees no problem with this. After all, those women got pregnant through their vaginas so what could be wrong about putting something else up there? … [Read more...]

Bradlee Dean: Civics Educator

Reading the latest Bradlee Dean column at the Worldnutdaily made me laugh out loud when I came across this line:After performing constitutional lyceums in 341 high schools across America, I have seen firsthand the indoctrination being imposed on the future generations of this great country – which, for the most part, they are rejecting.Constitutional lyceums? That's freaking hilarious. He gives assemblies where he preaches an idiotic sermon to the kids. His revival meetings are a " … [Read more...]

Rush Limbaugh Hates America!

Rush Limbaugh, showing all of the moral myopia that afflicts not just the right wing but most Americans, says that the sequestration deal has, for the first time, made him ashamed of his country. Because of all the things our government has done, budget negotiations are the one thing that can cause him shame. … [Read more...]

DOJ Gives Gift to Blackwater

Remember when Blackwater was charged with 15 counts of illegal weapons possession and trafficking, falsifying documents, lying to the government and bribing foreign officials? The Department of Justice just let them off with less than a slap on the wrist after two executives pleaded guilty to much lesser charges. … [Read more...]

Greenwald Blasts NBC for Hiring Obama Advisers

Glenn Greenwald has an absolutely scathing column about NBC hiring former Obama advisers David Axelrod and Robert Gibbs as contributors and what this says about the sad state of our sycophantic media. While noting that there are exceptions -- Chris Hayes and Rachel Maddow are sometimes highly critical of the Obama administration -- he points out just how bad things have gotten on MSNBC in particular: … [Read more...]

Paul Ryan: For the Sequester Before It Was Obama’s Fault

I'm sure it will come as a huge shock to you all to find out that Paul Ryan was a big fan of the sequester before he suddenly decided it was a terrible and it was all Obama's fault. Not only did he vote for it, he argued for it over and over again on TV and on the House floor. … [Read more...]

AFA Blocks the Curse Words

Apparently they've had this out for a long time, but I never noticed it until now. The American Family Association markets a product called TVGuardian, which filters out any naughty words that might otherwise fall on your precious child's virgin ears. And boy does it work! … [Read more...]

Farris: Obama May Ban Homeschooling!

With no examples of actual persecution of Christians in this country, the Christian right is always on the lookout for opportunities to invent wildly ridiculous predictions of the persecution to come. Michael Farris says that Obama may issue an executive order banning homeschooling. Talking about a case where a German family is seeking asylum because that country won't let them homeschool their kids: … [Read more...]

Klayman Trying to Stop Arpaio Recall

Larry Klayman, the dumbest lawyer in America not named Mat Staver or Orly Taitz, is now representing a Tea Party group that is trying to prevent a petition drive to recall fascist Sheriff Joe Arpaio from office. Funny, doesn't Klayman claim to be all about bringing accountability to power? I guess that only applies to non-wingnuts in power. … [Read more...]

Gohmert: Guns Needed to Stop Sharia Takeover

Rep. Louis Gohmert, who really must be the dumbest man in Congress (sorry, Steve King; keep trying), went on a right wing talk show and offered up a novel argument against gun control -- it's needed to stop the impending Sharia takeover of the country. … [Read more...]
