I’ve Been Covering Politics for 16 Years. I’ve Never Seen Anything Like Trumpcare’s Collapse Last Night.

I’ve been covering politics for 16 years and obsessively tracking current events since my high school goth phase. And I’ve never seen anything like I did last night when the U.S. Senate’s version of Trumpcare spectacularly went down. You couldn’t script a more dramatic scenario, with U.S. Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), who survived five years in the Hanoi Hilton only […]

Republicans maintain a laser-like focus on Obamacare misinformation campaign

Republicans maintain a laser-like focus on Obamacare misinformation campaign

GOP Congressmen Walberg and Bentivolio are so busy trying to discredit the ACA, how can they have time for anything else? How many Obamacare “horror stories” have to be debunked for people to realize that the GOP spin machine is pedaling so hard it’s about ready to rotate off its axis? Better yet, let’s call it what it is: lying. […]

If your health insurance is being canceled, think twice about who to blame

If your health insurance is being canceled, think twice about who to blame

The claims that the Obama administration lied about people being able to keep their coverage are greatly exaggerated. The report by NBC News stating that the Obama administration knew that millions of Americans couldn’t keep their health insurance doesn’t tell the whole story. But it certainly gives the opposition fodder. In fact, the GOP is already gleefully rubbing their hands […]

Birth Control Extremism is a Gift to Women

Birth Control Extremism is a Gift to Women

If women needing birth control to treat endometriosis makes you think about sex, there are medications for that. There are still at it. They’re still implying Sandra Fluke is a slut. They’re still betraying they have no idea how birth control works. They still think getting a prescription to treat endometriosis is some luxury you’re being “given” at their expense. […]

How to Use Twitter

How to Use Twitter

Please RT! – @RobDelaney Apparently I’ve been waiting my whole life for Twitter. Allen Ginsberg had to roam to streets to see the best minds of his generation destroyed by madness. I do it through a retina display.And politics has been waiting for Twitter, too. Last year, Politico’s Ben Smith recognized last year that Twitter was draining the life from […]

The GOP Can’t Deny Its Extremism (Anymore)

The GOP Can’t Deny Its Extremism (Anymore)

America just isn’t that into the 1 percent We let the GOP pretend they’re for small government, even though they don’t believe in the separation of uterus and state. We let them say they’re conservative, when they want to pre-emptively start new wars. We let them say that they care about the American Dream, as they try to destroy the […]

GOP Birth Control Mania Peaks

GOP Birth Control Mania Peaks

The 2012 election exists to prove that the GOP can do worse than Sarah Palin. By the great @LizzWinstead. On MSNBC this afternoon, Rick Santorum’s mega-baker Foster Friess (delicious name) said, “Back in my day, they used Bayer Aspirin for contraceptives. The gals put it between their knees and it wasn’t that costly.” MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell, who was conducting the […]

GOP Talking Points Locked in Theater of the Absurd

GOP Talking Points Locked in Theater of the Absurd

Remember how the GOP got everyone all enraged at the deficits they created? Who did the GOP instantly blame for the costs of two wars, trillions in tax breaks, completely unfunded, wasteful expansions of Medicare plus an economic crash that suddenly dwarfed their own massive failures abroad? The man who inherited the costs. With a TV channel and apoplectic emails […]

How Rick Santorum Could Beat Mitt Romney in Michigan

Metaphorically Rick Santorum should believe in God. The fact that he’s still in this race is a tribute to some higher power or, more likely, the weakness of the GOP’s bench. It’s also a tribute to his appeal to the sort of Republican who hates both birth control and abortion—breeders, as @Azrielenish calls them. Now, I see that Santorum is […]
