Republicans: The Party of Drug Addled Gas Bags? Works For Me…

The kerfuffle surrounding Rush Limbaugh (who tied with Ann Coulter with the most times as our Right Boob of the week) is absolutely priceless. It’s also proof that Barack Obama has political instincts that are absolutely unparalleled. If you’re paying attention, President Obama actually started this by suggesting to the …

Cutting the Crap! Republican Senator ONLY Skeptical of Bailing Out Americans

Don't let them fool you. Republicans sound like they're concerned about wasting money bailing out the US car industry. But this is not about giving money to the car companies, and a concern about getting it back. This is about killing the last major bastion of American manufacturing, and breaking …

Republicans; Shameless as they Drown, Politically

You really have to hand it to these assholes. They have balls, even if they don't have a brain in their heads. The Huffington Post is reporting that House Republicans are going back to their districts, and pretending they never voted against the damn thing. Here's what they report: GOP …

The Right Wing Republican Legacy: Kids being Jailed for Money

This is what happens when you implement the Republican ideal, wherein anything that makes someone money is okay, because wealth is king. If you want to know why this society is broken, here's a prime example, from Truthdig – Jailing Kids for Cash, by Amy Goodman". As many as 5,000 …

Republican Stupid Idea of the Day: Nationalize the Banks!

Was I dreaming? Didn't the Republican noise machine spend the last few months of the presidential campaign trying to portray Barack Obama as a socialist? So, what the hell is this? This is from Lindsay Graham yesterday, speaking on ABC's This Week: "I would not take off the idea of …

Boehner’s Lasted More Than Four Hours! Call Someone!

How far the neocons in the Republican Party have come, eh?  You have to love their leader in the House, don't you?   Their leader during the "revolution," way back in 1995, was Newt Gingrich. Say what you will about Newtie (and believe me, there is a lot to say, …

Republican Moron on Moron: Beck vs. Steele

I truly feel sorry for the right wing cognoscenti. Just think of the number of morons they rely on for information and leadership. How could anyone on the right feel hopeful with “leaders” like they have? This is a classic example of what I mean. Here is the Moronic Glenn …

Investigation and Due Process of the Bushies: Are we Americans or are We Mice?

I am excited at the prospects offered by the Obama Administration, and I am looking forward to a future that is much brighter than anything we've seen since we ceded the government to the neocons 28 years ago, culminating in the last eight years of pure hell on earth. The …

The Republicans Have Lost It — They Really Have…

They spent the last eight years screwing up everything they touched. Best case scenario, they stood back and did nothing, while the most incompetent administration in US History took apart the federal government and put the economy in the toilet. Now, it's time to fix things. Voters made themselves crystal …

Right Wingers on NRO: 50 De-Stimulating Myths Disguised as “Fact”

One of the worst aspects of the "debate" over the economic stimulus package has to be the sophistry exhibited by the far right when discussing  the issue. One of the purest examples of the bullshit coming from the far right was in The National Review Online this morning, in the …

Stimulate THIS, Republicans!

Look, Democratic Senators; it is this simple. The current incarnation of the Republican Party will only play ball when they lose enough fights, and realize they have no choice but to either help craft legislation, or get the hell out of the way while you do. The people want and …

Bipartisanship With Petulant Children; Is it Possible?

Look, I'm all for President Obama seeking support from Republicans.  After all, he is the president of all of the people, and Republicans are people, too. But for Chrissakes; at what point does he get that the leadership representing the Republican Party in Congress — especially the Senate — is …

House Republican Steele Says the GOP is Perfect As-Is… GOP is Toast!

So, just how did someone like Michael Steele, who has no successful political experience — he won one election as a governor's running mate, and has never won election on his own — get to lead a party that most agree is on it's way down? By being black, and …

Meet the House, er, Republican

Them there Republicans must be so proud. Just when you think they're done, and they're about to become inconsequential for a generation, they turn around and defy expectations and elect a chairman who is… um… well… a "keepsake," for the lack of a better term. You see, they've realized the …

Republicans — In the Car Seat, Driving Nothing

I know it's difficult, given what we've been through for the last 28 years, and especially the last 8, but can I please ask progressives and others to stop obsessing over whatever the Republicans do? To put it bluntly, who gives a shit? Barack Obama is a master politician. He's …

McCain and Chambliss: The Devil DID Go Down to Georgia!

You know, I have never cared for John McCain's politics, because he is an unabashed conservative, who would only rarely take a stand against his conservative brethren on anything important.  But I always respected him; even though I disagreed with him, he had principles, and stood by them most of …
