Learn to debate: the power of tie-downs and how they could be used to make a corrupt mayor squirm.

One of my favorite tools in debates is the tie-down.  Here’s the deal: most of the objections you get in debates (especially about god’s existence, etc.) aren’t legit objections, they’re just rationalizations.  For instance, in my debate with Aaron Brummitt (which was over the question “Does God Exist?”) he railed against evolution non-stop.  Now, do [Read More...]

Here’s this week’s entry on “bills that will never get passed”: A bipartisan group of Congressmen introduced a bill Monday that would stop costly first-class flights by lawmakers at taxpayer expense and force representatives and senators to fly coach. “As representatives of the American people, we in Congress have a responsibility to wisely use the [Read More...]

Louie Gohmert compares LGBT equality advocates to Nazis.

You want to see an entire universe of unhinged rambling?  Here it is, direct from a member of the House of Representatives: We only want marriage for select individuals and people are calling us intolerant!  Waaaaaaaaaaah! So much wrong here.  Gohmert starts by saying he loves gay people, yet he wants them to have fewer [Read More...]

Orly Taitz running for CA Attorney General, would prosecute Obama for lack of birth certificate if elected.

If Orly Taitz were in Texas, I’d cry into my pillow every night for fear she’d be elected to some position of power.  But since she’s in California I can just giggle at how flamboyantly ridiculous she is.  Every time she squeals that President Obama isn’t a real American I can chuckle and move on.

Huckabee also calls for impeachment of judge who struck down Arkansas gay marriage ban.

Fucker shouldn’t be allowed to run for garbageman because he doesn’t understand how constitutional protections work: Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee says lawmakers in his home state should impeach a judge who struck down the state’s gay marriage ban, saying the judge ignored the will of voters. In a blog post on his political action committee website, Huckabee on Sunday criticized [Read More...]

Some GOP lawmakers in Arkansas want to impeach Judge who struck down the gay marriage ban.

This is silly, but not wholly unexpected: At least one member of the Arkansas House of Representatives has confirmed that he is pursuing impeachment against Pulaski County Circuit Judge Chris Piazza following his ruling Friday (May 9) that overturned the state’s ban on gay marriage. But the speaker of the Arkansas House has vowed to block any [Read More...]

Candidate for Texas Lt. Governor: Planned Parenthood does nothing for women’s health.

Dan Patrick is running for Lt. Governor in Texas.  During a debate the other day with the current Lt. Governor, Patrick decided to honor Texas’ rich history of electing the person who says the stupidest things: “This is a myth that Planned Parenthood has anything to do with women’s health,” he opined. “Why are they [Read More...]

Politician running for the job of detecting and punishing fraud charged with six counts of…just guess.

Kathleen Cox is running for the position of auditor in Alameda County.  Her website claims “as the county’s auditor, I will fight waste and fraud.”  So you’ll never guess why she’ll be in court soon…unless you said on six counts of fraud.  Then you’d be right. A politician running for Alameda County auditor has been [Read More...]

TN state senator who compared the ACA to the Holocaust is sorry you took it that way.

Monday Sen. Stacey Campfield (R) of Tennessee compared people signing up for the Affordable Care Act to Jews slaughtered in the Holocaust.  Not joking.  Not exaggerating.  Click the link and see for yourself. Understandably everybody, including people in his own party, thought that was a really shitty thing to do.  So today he has released some [Read More...]

TN state senator compares the Affordable Care Act to the Holocaust.

I’ve grown cynical in my time as a blogger.  A lot of times when I see a headline like “Tennessee State Senator Compares Obamacare To The Holocaust” I’ll read the article and realize the comparison was tenuous at best.  That is honestly what I expected when I saw that headline. Then I read the article. [Read More...]
