McCain rediscovers his backbone: tells Fox News that GOP shutdown the government.

I don’t agree with McCain about how the White House has handled the shutdown.  I think the White House is doing precisely what it should be doing: refusing to reward the GOP for taking America’s economy hostage in order to undermine the democratic process.  However, I do like McCain reverting to the straight shooter (who [Read More...]

Jon Stewart: Republicans need to own shutdown.

Jon hits the GOP on trying to ditch the responsibility for the shutdown they orchestrated. Yup. [Read more...]

The GOP makes “a good faith effort” to save their image.

I loathe John Boehner. It’s a common tactic when negotiating the price of anything to lowball them.  Say a person wants $200 for a sofa and you only want to pay $150.  You don’t start by offering $150, you start by offering $100 and then let them negotiate you up to what you wanted to [Read More...]

Let the GOP re-write of shutdown history begin.

First thing: every time I read something that has leaked out of John Boehner’s brain a little more contempt is cultivated in my mind.  Yesterday was no exception: “It is our hope that this will be a constructive meeting and that the president finally recognizes Americans expect their leaders to be able to sit down [Read More...]

Republicans spent all spring avoiding negotiation, but now it’s all they want.

The key talking point right now for the GOP regarding the shutdown is that the Democrats won’t negotiate with them.  If only they would, the GOP wouldn’t have to put a gun to the head of our economy. Funny thing though, all spring the Dems tried to negotiate with the GOP, and they would have [Read More...]

Shutdown affecting hunting and fishing. Republicans won’t like that…

Most of the country is pissed at the Republicans over the shut down (and rightly so, since it’s their doing).  But there are still a cabal of Tea Partiers who, in the name of Jesus, would rather see our economy destroyed before they see the poor get healthcare (ironically, because of concern that the healthcare [Read More...]

Bachmann: we’re in the end times.

Back before the Tea Party became a thing we always knew there was a bubbling hotbed of insanity churning beneath the GOP, waiting to burst out into the public.  Sure we got bad policy and dumb decisions out of the Republicans, but we always knew that there was a contingent of much, much worse at [Read More...]

Boehner is not the best liar…

It’s obvious that the GOP is willing to hold a gun to Lady Liberty’s head in order to subvert the democratic process, but there was at least some question as to whether or not they’d actually be able to pull the trigger.  Now there is no doubt.  The GOP is willing to tank our economy [Read More...]

Russia attempting to keep gays from adopting children.

When Russia passed its law against educating young people about LGBT issues, the reasoning was: “I think this is kind of an invented problem,” he said. “We don’t have a law banning non-traditional sexual relations, we have a different law. “It is the informational protection of the young generation. We want to prevent the young [Read More...]
