Republic Whacks Ban Centaurs!!!

An interesting  little blurb in this morning's Politico, by Glenn Thrush gives us some insight into just how bull goose looney the far right has become. It seems that Sam Brownback, one of the nuttiest wingnuts of all wingnuttery, has taken his obscenely extreme "anti-choice" rhetoric to new heights. It

Open Appeal to Caribou Barbie: Please Go Away!

Seriously; when does Caribou Barbie actually go away? Is there any way to speed up the process?   I get the media's fascination with her; I really do.She's comedic gold. I know, every time I see her, the one-liners flow like the oxycontin dispenser at Limbaugh's house. In my experience,

DC Teabaggers Make the Founding Fathers Laugh From Their Graves

Apparently, the teabagging isn’t going so well, at least in DC. Fox News’ Publicity Department should be ashamed… First off, some genius thought the initial idea, to dump 1 million teabags in the Potomac River, was a good idea on some level. Now, anyone with a pulse would have to

Teabagging for Profit Once Made a Person a… Never Mind…

You know, when you look at the right wing “teabagging” episodes happening all over the country today, you really can't do anything but laugh. Here, we have a bunch of extremely rich, authoritarian morons asking middle- and working-class people to protest in mass numbers against a tax increase on the

We Reveal Our Right Boob Once Again…

This has been coming for quite some time… You knew it was just a matter of time… The Republican Party leadership is absolutely morally and ethically bankrupt these days. I actually feel sorry for Republicans, by and large, because their leaders are absolutely worthless. They have become the "Party of

Barney Frank Calls Scalia a “Homophobe”– Frank’s Right As Usual!

Seriously… you have to love Barney Frank. He seems to be one of the few Congressional Democrats who just says what he thinks, without running it through a "political expediency" filter. In a recent interview with the gay news Web site, Frank called Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia (why

Because There Just Isn’t Enough Right Wing Radio Already…

Apparently, The owners of the Washington Right Wing Moonie Times want to do for radio what Fox News has done for television news. This is from this morning's Washington Right Wing Moonie Times: The Washington Times will launch a syndicated radio show later this spring, dedicated to the newsroom's investigative

Great Series on the 20th Anniversary of the Exxon Valdez Oil Spill

Our buddies at BuzzFlash have begun a great series on what happened when the Exxon Valdez created one of the worst non-natural environmental disasters in history. Hard to believe it's been 20 years since I willingly bought gas from Exxon. I think I've stopped at Exxon about a half dozen

Right Wing Idiot of the Day for March 19, 2009

Normally this will be a contest between two or three people, but today’s idiot is so clear cut, there isn’t room for a runner up. I mean, Eric Cantor's a moron Today, it’s not even a contest… Today’s Right Wing Idiot of the Day is…

Right Wing Loons Rail Against Judge Hamilton

It seems the far right is having a conniption over President Obama’s first judicial nomination, as they have already started their full-court press against the guy. Obama’s first nominee is US District Court Judge David F. Hamilton, who will be elevated to the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals. Hamilton has

Don’t Let ‘Em Fool Ya! The Neocons Screwed Our Economy

One of the more fascinating arguments used by right wingers to justify their continued belief in the ridiculous concept of supply-side economics, or "trickle-down" as they like to call it, is the truly hilarious argument that "private investment in markets created your job." Yeah, I know. The concept is pretty
