The Caribou Barbie is an Idiot Chronicles: The Oil Spill

This blog has been remiss, and I apologize. You see, I often dismiss Caribou Barbie (Sarah Palin) as a crank and an idiot, which is just too easy at times. I sometimes forget that a significant portion of the population actually believes what they think she said (most of it

How to Argue With a Right Winger

Okay, in the interest of the relative sanity of the populous, I should probably start by advising you to never argue with a right winger in a one-on-one, face-to-face situation.  It's better to preserve the brain cells, and just shake your head and walk away muttering.  (But make sure you

Me vs. Coulter — Kicking the Ultimate RW Liar’s ASS on Health Insurance Parts 3 & 4

Okay, I've been neglecting my Coulter-thrashing duties, so I'm forced to combine two of her crap-laced columns into one. Sue me. Better yet, I almost wish she would.   As a nasty liar, this woman(?) is world-class. She has made a really good living telling the wingnuts what they want

Jon Stewart Fries Paid Health Care Liar Betsy McCaughey

I told you all about lying sack, Betsy McCaughey a while ago on this very blog, and in my first appearance on the Nicole Sandler Show. But what I want to know is, where is our press on this? Reporters should be chomping at the bit to expose these people.

Me vs. Coulter — Kicking the Ultimate RW Liar’s ASS on Health Insurance

I got this in my email yesterday, and had to laugh my ass off. You'll see why when you look at the title.   I'm not even going to lead into this one; I'll just say it's typical Coulter; red meat and pure BS for the droolers who will believe

Pseudo-Christians Using Jesus’ Name to Lie About Health Care Reform

(The original deconstruction of the right wing lies about the health care system is still here. You just have to click on the link at the top right… or you can click here… ) I received this in my e-mail Sunday (of all days). I'm having problems with formatting, so

Cutting More “Objectively Standard” Lies About the Health Care Bill

(Note: The original "Deconstruction" is still here…) Apparently, they haven't figured out we're onto them.   What follows is from an e-mail sent by a reader. The original comes from a blog entitled "The Objective Standard." It's an Ayn Randian type blog that simply has a problem with the government

Even Newer! Deconstructing the Right Wing Lies on Health Care Bill – Part III

(I have compiled everything into one page for easier consumption. Click the link at the top right of this blog and you'll be taken to it…) (For those of you who missed me on the radio last night, you can GO HERE and listen to me take apart the Right

NEW! Deconstructing the Right Wing Lies on the Health Insurance Bill — Pages 500-730

(This is an all-new round of BS, mostly covering the pages after 500. Please feel free to check out the original post right here, as well… These lawyers are so long-winded, there will be a Part III… Stay tuned…) (I was on the Nicole Sanders Show Wednesday night to discuss

Still Birthers After All These Years

How comfortable can we possibly be when we realize that, as we walk down the street today, nearly one out of every 12 people you encounter are actually stupid enough to think it’s possible that President Obama wasn’t born here, and therefore shouldn’t be president of the United States?  

Cutting the Health Care Crap: Betsy McCaughey

There is a name you will keep hearing throughout the health insurance reform debate; Betsy McCaughey (It's pronounced "McCoy," for those who only hear the name and wonder who's lying to them). You will hear from her and see her ad nauseum, because the right wing, especially the whacks at

Deconstructing the Right Wing Lies on the Health Insurance Bill — Pages 1-500

(Thanks to a reader, I found another source of right wing crap on the health care bill, so there is now a part II to this post. As you may have noted, the right wingers who came up with this piece crapped out at page 500; their ADD must have

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

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

Cutting the RW Crap: PDFs and Oxycontin: a Potent Mix!

There is no end to the excuses the right wingers are trying to use to tar and feather Democrats when it comes to the stimulus. The latest load of crap that has been going around the right wing crap machine is the notion that President Obama and the Democrats have

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

Cutting the Crap: “Redistribution of Wealth” as a Neocon Talking Point

I know the neocons hate the word “redistribution,” because they claim it sounds “communist,” but here’s a stone cold fact; their baby, supply-side economics, is all about redistribution of wealth. These assholes have been taking from the average person for years. Look at your 401(k) for a clue. Twice in

Cutting the Right Wing Crap Chart

Sometimes, it's fun to get e-mail from right wing clowns, especially lately, when it's pretty obvious Barack Obama will be our next president. They are apoplectic. My favorite of these last few weeks has to be a chart, which is designed to make it "easy" to know who to vote

Why McCain Was Always Going to Lose: Bye Bye Right Wing!

The Republican Party is truly screwed, and I think they’re just beginning to realize it.   See, the one basic truism of politics is that every election cycle is different. It’s really not possible to compare 2008 with 2006, or 2004 to 2000, etc. I know, the pundits try, but
