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

It Really Is the Economy, Stupid — This Time, Let’s REALLY Change It!

You know, one of the greatest frustrations in being somewhat liberal is the tendency for others of my ideological ilk to demonize individuals, and to focus on specific people as "the problem." Our economy is damn close to a total meltdown, and we’re closer to being a Third World country
