Last week I wrote about how the campaign of notorious homophobe and anti-worker Republican Gary Glenn had exploited an elderly Korean War vet in an effort to smear Glenn’s Democratic opponent Geoff Malicoat. An “open letter” was sent to multiple media outlets suggesting that horrific anti-veteran comments made on an online forum in 2006 were penned by Malicoat. The letter […]Read more ›

Yesterday, I wrote about a diatribe posted to Facebook by tea partier Todd Courser where he referred to subsidized daycare as “gubmint child’s care centers” & “government re-engineering centers”. In that same bizarre screed, he also said this: It takes you…Calling all true pro-lifers! Lots of reasons to vote against this coming budget, it cuts road funding (you heard me […]Read more ›

Ultra far right wing conservatives Todd Courser and Gary Glenn took steps this week that show beyond a shadow of a doubt that their views on education have more to do with people in the 18th Century than they do with any modern views on education today. In a Facebook post this week that he has since deleted, Courser describes […]Read more ›

It wouldn’t be January in Michigan without a new outrage from our state’s most nauseating bigot Dave Agema.

Dude, really? Just admit it: homophobes dying off like dinosaurs. I was listening to a really terrific radio documentary by Michigan Public Radio’s Lester Graham the other day when I heard something right at the very end that made me about pee in my pants because it was so hilariously delusional. It was a statement from noted homophobic bigot Gary […]Read more ›
Evolve already The American Family Association is publicly declaring their head-in-the-sand view that public opinion on marriage equality is experiencing a sea change. In a piece in the Detroit Free Press about the potential for a statewide vote on repealing Michigan’s same-sex marriage ban in 2016, Gary Glenn of the AFA makes their position very clear: “We simply don’t believe […]Read more ›
Bring the popcorn!
While Pete Hoekstra’s Senate campaign staggers around from self-inflicted gunshot wounds to the feet, his primary contenders aren’t holding back on him, either.
One of them, Gary Glenn, tea partier extraordinaire, is accusing Hoekstra of having hired a convicted felon to collect signatures to put him on the ballot.
More entertainment after the jump.Read more ›
Here’s a good one. Who said this? “The purpose of the First Amendment is to protect the free exercise of the Christian religion.” Answer after the jump. The answer is Bryan Fischer, an official at the American Family Association (AFA), a virulently anti-gay and anti-Mormon organization. We have the “pleasure” of having and AFA moron running for Senate in Michigan […]Read more ›
