What Do Modern Republicans Stand For? Heh.

We talk a lot of about Republicans and the right wing, but why? How many progressives truly understand what their ideology is about? I don’t mean reflexively being against them because you’re supposed to be. I’m talking about what the base of the Republican Party actually stands for. This is

Voter Suppression Can Only Work if…

Anyone who thinks the Republican “message” is why they keep beating us in elections is remarkably gullible. There I said it. Phew. Republicans win because of a two-pronged approach that we could counter easily, if PUBs and the professional left were just a bit smarter. Sorry guys, but this is

The Real Founders of ISIL

Donald Trump seems to be confused, but he’s not. When it comes to talking about ISIL/Daesh, Trump is doing what he’s done all along; his people are listening to and reading the professional right wing and he’s mimicking whatever they hear. This is because that is the only way he

About Cartoon Hillary…

If there is one thing that makes this election different than past elections, it is in the sheer volume of bullshit being flung about. There are times when I feel like I’m in the monkey cage at the zoo. Of course, I will get to Trump; he’s practically a steaming

Trump: Dead Man Walking? We Can’t Afford to Think So

I have been saying all along that Donald Trump is not running for president because he wants to be president. All of us thought he would have a snowball’s chance in hell because we figured the GOP and the RNC had the means to stop him. I am convinced that

GOP Right Boobs of the Week: RNC Post Mortem Edition

By @SueinRockville and Milt Shook Everyone predicted at the start of Monday’s GOP Convention a clusterfuck of epic proportions.  We knew it would be a 4 date hate-fest of lies about Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama & the dangerous Democrats. However, even the most jaded political operatives, many of them Republican,

GOP Right Boobs of the Week: Trump the Hump Edition

By @surinrockville and Milt Shook Another week, another column in which we are forced to ask the important question, “Where the hell do we start?” Well, as is usual these days, we start with Trump. He is, after all, the leader of the current Republican Party. This week even featured international stupidity,

Both Parties are NOT the Same: Gunloon Edition

It seems as if every day, some PUB (Progressive Unicorn Brigade) or a professional lefty (people who say what gullible progressives want to hear to get clicks) tries to convince me that the two major political parties are much the same. Mind you, they tell me this without any sort

GOP Right Boobs of the Week – Which One’s the Hole in the Ground? Edition

by @SueInRockville and Milt Shook This has been a banner week for the Trump-led Republican Party. The week started with a tragic loss, which created a virtual vortex in the Republican ideology because it forced them to confront three issues That they don’t exactly like to deal with, and not

GOP Right Boobs of the Week: Flip-Flop Edition

by @SueinRockville and @MiltShook For those who still aren’t convinced the GOP is brain-dead and on life support, you’re not paying close enough attention. The emergence of the 17-Klown Klown Kar at the end of last year was only the beginning. Now, they seem to have nominated Donald Trump as

Sending Messages and Holding “Them” Accountable

I’ve been around a long time. I’m not old, yet, but I’ve been around a while. No matter how long I’m around, however, I will never understand why PUBs (Progressive Unicorn Brigade, sometimes called “emo progs,” but I’m not a fan of that term.) and pundits on the professional left

Republican Right Boobs of the Week: Trump Clinches Edition

While my friend @sueinrockville spends some time with her family, I get to keep up our new tradition on my own this week. There is a lot of Trump news, as always. Republicans have to be crazy as loons to allow this idiot to be nominated, and this is why.

It’s Just Not That Simple

You know, one of the main problems with speaking about politics in platitudes is that no one else but you necessarily knows what you’re talking about. Likewise, if you’re a big fan of sound bites to the point that everything you say about any issue is designed to fit into

Republican Right Boobs of the Week – Perverted “Family Values” Edition

by @SueinRockville and Milt The week in GOP silliness is both enlightening and highly perverted. What is it about the obsession with anything sexual demonstrated by modern-day Republicans? As always, when you talk about Right Boobs, Donald Trump is at the top of the class. Of course, the highlight of

GOP Right Boobs of the Week: Gender Neutral Edition

Welcome to another week of GOP racism, bigotry, and overall stupidity! This week’s column specially written by “John Barron” (Secretly, we’re really @SueinRockville with an able assist by Milt Shook, but don’t tell anyone.) For most of the last year, the corporate media has been suffering from Donalditis, a fever

Nothing About the GOP is “Conservative”

One thing I’ve advocated for many years is that people stop using the word “conservative” to describe the right wing whack jobs who have taken over the Republican Party. I’ve had no luck, of course. I’m just me. But you’ll note that, in more than 1,000 posts on this blog,
