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...]

What If You Threw a Secession Rally and No One Showed Up?


The Alabama Flaggers, a self-declared "group with the conviction to fight four our Southern heritage," tried to hold a rally at the Alabama state capitol on Saturday calling for that state to secede from the union because those evil Northerners don't like them flying the Confederate flag. Like so many previous right-wing rallies, it fizzled when only a handful of people showed up, baffling the organizers. … [Read more...]

That Time Kim Davis Issued a Marriage License to a Transgender Man


Oh sweet delicious irony. Rowan County, Kentucky Clerk Kim Davis, who continues to obstinately refuse to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples because she falsely believes this indicates her approval rather than her certification that they are legally entitled to marry, unwittingly issued a marriage license to a transgender man and his pansexual wife earlier this year. … [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...]

Please Pray for Glenn Beck


On Saturday, Glenn Beck held his "unity rally" in Birmingham, Alabama, drawing an estimated 20,000 people. It featured Rafael Cruz giving a prayer about how we need to overcome our differences, destroying irony meters everywhere coming from a man who savages those he disagrees with as Satan-controlled communists. It also featured Beck in a bulletproof vest, showing just how strong his faith is. But it seems to have tuckered poor Glenn out: … [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...]

Fiorina Fudges on Fossil Fuels and the Environment


Carly Fiorina did an interview with Katie Couric about her energy plan, which can be summed up in this statement: Meet the new fossil fuel regime, same as the old fossil fuel regime. It was just a rehash of dishonest talking points against wind and solar energy and nonsensical talk about "clean coal" (which simply does not exist; it is by far the worst polluting form of energy production). The Star-Ledger did some fact-checking: … [Read more...]

Worldnetdaily Columnist Destroys a Straw Feminist


Patrice Lewis is the author of an insipid piece of drivel at the Worldnetdaily entitled "Are Feminists Insane?" It's nothing more than the ritual disembowlment of one of the commonly invoked straw feminists, the Evil Feminist Who Hates Women Who Choose to Be Mothers. Unable to find any actual feminist who believes that, she quotes from an obscure Salon writer who says the opposite, that in at least one sense she actually envies stay-at-home moms. … [Read more...]

Palin Interviews Trump. Hilarity Ensues.


Sarah Palin interviewed Donald Trump on some previously unheard of news network called One America News on Friday and it was nothing more than an infomercial for the candidate. Palin gushes and gets all folksy and Joe Six-Packey with him. At one point she says, "I know that's where your heart is, in the working class." Oh yeah, if there's one thing Trump is known for, it's looking out for the working class (you know, like all those people whose homes he paid the government to seize to make way … [Read more...]

What Will Happen With the Oklahoma Ten Commandments Monument?

Church and State

The Oklahoma Supreme Court has ruled that the Ten Commandments monument placed on the state capitol grounds a few years ago is a violation of the state constitution and they've reaffirmed that ruling when the state filed a motion to reconsider. But it's still up because the governor and the legislature have been playing games with it. A district court has now scheduled a hearing to determine what will happen to it. … [Read more...]

Barber Babbles About Judicial Review


Matt Barber of Liberty Counsel and BarbWire has his weekly column at the Worldnetdaily and it's pretty much the usual diatribe about the evils of judicial review. He makes the argument that the Supreme Court's opinions are advisory only and that neither the president nor Congress is required to follow them. He does this by quoting newspapers reacting to the Dred Scott decision as though it had anything to do with anything. … [Read more...]
