Big Meanie Obama Gets Bristol Palin All Upset


Palin the Lesser, aka Bristol Palin, the whiny little hypocrite who makes nearly $300,000 advocating for abstinence until marriage but managed to get pregnant twice without being married, is really upset you guys. President Obama made a trip to Alaska and Bristol is balling up her little fists and stomping her feet so hard that she -- or someone in her employ -- penned an amusing little hissy fit about it. … [Read more...]

Republicans Headed for Another Shutdown Showdown They Can’t Win

It appears that the Republicans in Congress are headed for another budget fight that may result in a government shutdown, this time over their desire to tie defunding Planned Parenthood to important spending bills needed to keep the government funded before the end of the fiscal year (the end of this month). But even Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell admits that they simply don't have the votes to win: … [Read more...]

Coulter’s Male Alter Ego Loses Law License


If you've never heard of Todd Kincannon, do a Google search on him and you'll quickly come to the conclusion that he's the male version of Ann Coulter, a troll who just continually tries to top himself in making the most appalling and outrageous statements to get attention. But now the former head of the South Carolina Republican Party has lost his law license, for so-far unspecified reasons. … [Read more...]

Perry Calls the Christian Troops to War


Rick Perry joined Ted Cruz at that ridiculous I Stand With God rally at the South Carolina state capitol and tried his hardest to inject some energy into his floundering presidential campaign by comparing himself to Jesus and asking the people there to join him in storming Washington, DC and throwing the moneychangers out of the temple. He even referenced the hymn Onward Christian Soldiers to reinforce the military metaphor. … [Read more...]

How Janet Porter Gave Us the 2nd Bush Presidency


I'm always highly amused when I hear Christians talk about how their prayers changed things and got them what they want. Never mind that in many circumstances, there were people praying for the opposite result as well and one group or the other was bound to have their prayers "answered." Janet Porter, for instance, says that it was her prayers that ensured a victory in Florida for George W. Bush. … [Read more...]

Cruz’ Demagoguery on Display at ‘I Stand With God’ Rally


There are few cheaper and easier ways for a politician to pander to ignorant rubes than by declaring themselves to be on the side of God. Ted Cruz held an entire rally just for that purpose at the South Carolina state capitol, appropriately called the I Stand With God rally. And he put his full powers of demagoguery on display, telling the gathered throng that Christians will soon be thrown in prison in this country like they are in Iran. … [Read more...]

Trump: Women Can’t Be Trusted With Secrets


Having already infuriated women everywhere with his blatant misogyny, Donald Trump just keeps on upping the ante and digging the hole deeper. He just gets to talking and stupid shit comes out of his mouth, like in a recent speech when he started attacking Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin and ended up saying that women who love their husbands can't be trusted with secrets because they'll tell them all about it. … [Read more...]

Staver and Barber: Ben Carson Just Like Nazi Doctors


After it came out that Ben Carson did medical research using aborted fetuses, he came out with a totally incoherent but kinda sorta defense of fetal tissue research, which has been very important in a great many medical advances. That's enough to make him public enemy #1 to Mat Staver, the dumbest lawyer in America not named Larry Klayman, and Matt Barber, who have decided that this makes him just like Dr. Mengele. … [Read more...]

Ann Coulter Says Namaste to Donald Trump


Professional right-wing troll Ann Coulter has become Donald Trump's most prominent supporter, even introducing him at a campaign event in Iowa and showering him with praise. She's too old to become Mrs. Donald Trump #4, so she isn't gonna get her hands on any of his money, so what explains her loud advocacy for his candidacy? I think I can tell you exactly what it is. … [Read more...]

Liz and Dick Cheney’s Fantasy Echo Chamber


Dick Cheney and his daughter Liz seem to live in a different world than the rest of us do. In the world they live in, Dick Cheney is "courageous and dedicated and honorable” and the American people show tremendous "gratitude" to him. In the real world, Cheney was the astonishingly dishonest advocate of a war that killed hundreds of thousands of people and he's only slightly more popular than Lyme disease. … [Read more...]

Won’t the Real Dim Shady Please Stand Up


I thought Mitt Romney was the most incoherent politician I'd ever seen, having taken pretty much every possible side on every possible issue at some point, but Donald Trump may actually have him beaten in that respect. Some conservative news outlets, like the Daily Caller, are seeing beyond the fact that he pisses liberals off and pointing out that it's nearly impossible to figure out what he actually believes about anything. … [Read more...]

Hulk Hogan Wants to Be Trump’s Running Mate


Hulk Hogan says he wants to be Donald Trump's vice presidential running mate, which I think would bring exactly the appropriate atmosphere to the campaign. Donald Trump is essentially the pro wrestler of politics at this point and Hulk Hogan would at least fit in with his blatant racism, so it seems to me like a match made in heaven. … [Read more...]
