You’ve probably heard the House Republicans are planning another useless vote to repeal ObamaCare. This 30-somethingth display of their impotence is the kind of sabre-rattling that appeals to GOP primary voters — the only voters they care about — while wasting our precious time and money as millions of Americans struggle to find work. Imagine if House Republicans had voted […]Read more ›
Former Tucson, Arizona mayoral candidate raising money to give away free shotguns in high-crime areas
Oh, for the love of Goddess…
If you don’t believe the headline of this post, I really don’t blame you. I myself was skeptical until I clicked the link to the Arizona Daily Star article and was forced to confront the unfortunate fact that there are actually people this stupid, this unbelievably moronic roaming the earth.
But there it was, in black and white: “Ex-Tucson mayoral hopeful McClusky plans free shotguns for high-crime areas”.

Paul Ryan: “We’re not going to give up on destroying the health care system for the American people”
Honesty comes out in the funniest ways sometimes
Paul Ryan explains the goal of the GOP’s
new rehashed plan to cure the nation’s fiscal woes earlier today:
“This to us is something that we’re not going to give up on, because we’re not going to give up on destroying the health care system for the American people.”
It’s not that this comes as a surprise or anything, we just never thought you’d be so brazen about it, Mr. Ryan.
To quote a former candidate for president: “Oops”.

Remind me when letting the states decide civil rights issues has ever worked out, again. When I tell my friends that I support letting the states decide if Republicans can marry, they often ask me to leave their sauna, unfriend them on Facebook and return all of their lent toiletries. In these instances, I’m reminded that the tradition of marriage […]Read more ›
That’s quite a working class neighborhood you have there, Senator
During his rebuttal to the State of the Union address the other night, in addition to responding to a different SOTU address than the rest of us watched and having the Most Awkward Drink of Water Ever Ever, Marco Rubio talked about living “in the same working class neighborhood” he grew up in.
Our friends at Estately.com who are, apparently, Eclectablog & LOLGOP fans, sent along a link to Senator Rubio’s real estate posting on their site for the house he lives in. His house is for sale and the sales price is a whopping $675,000. It’s a nice house with a swimming pool and everything. But, at a sales price of over two-thirds of a million dollars, it’s clear that Rubio’s neighborhood is hardly “working class”, at least not any longer.

The current meltdown reminds us that 2010 was a massive fluke that we must avenge In the summer of 2012, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi pushed a plan that would extend the Bush tax breaks for all income under $1,000,000. She did this for one reason: To prove the House GOP would never vote for a tax increase ever, despite […]Read more ›
How the GOP’s rebranding became even less popular than the GOP If you’re ever feeling masochistic, take a look into the comments of a post on Breitbart.com. You’ll see gems like this one from “Patriot”: We have quit. Mitt won hands down & we did nothing. Whats left to do? Become a terrorest against our own country? ( “terrorest” must […]Read more ›
Aye, aye, aye…
Former Clinton advisor-turned-tea party freak, Dick Morris has a new book out called Here Come the Black Helicopters: UN Global Governance and the Loss of Freedom. In it, he postulates, among other things, that if President Obama is reelected to a second term, he will allow the United Nations to tax Americans so that they can redistribute the money to less fortunate countries.
You think I’m kidding but I’m not. He put it out there in an “opinion” piece (i.e., book advertisement) at Fox News, reposted from his own website.
