China says No Reincarnation Without Permission

Yes, the following is an absurd example, but this type of thing is why we should keep church and state absolutely separate. This is extreme, but how is it different in principle from making everyone say "under God" in the pledge of allegiance, or by doing what the fundies want …

Karl Rove — Now That He’s Leaving the White House, Let’s Find Him an Orange Jumpsuit

I’ve never understood why anyone would consider Karl Rove a "genius." He’s a bully and a sneak and an asshole, but there’s no way he’s a "genius." George W. Bush has never actually won a presidential election, not even as an incumbent running for reelection. I’m not just talking about …

GOP Candidates Foot-in-Mouth Disease

The Republican presidential field is so incredibly weak, it’s remarkable that the party doesn’t just pack it in and call it an election. Seriously, when Fred Thompson and Ridy Giuliani are among your "bright spots," it’s pretty much time to "turn out the lights." Witness the sheer volume of faux …

Bush to Lose his “Brain” at the End of the Month

It seems that Bush’s erstwhile "brain," Karl Rove, is going to leave at the end of the month, to go back to Texas and plot his next government takeover, or perhaps to begin to pen his memoir, in which he apologizes for foisting Bush, Jr. on the world. Of course, …

Those Gullible Wingnuts!

You know, it’s really hard to believe that some of the wingnuts actually believe much of the crap they themselves spew, you know?   Take Dennis Miller. No, seriously; take him. Please. There was a time when I found the man funny, but something happened after the 9/11 terrorist attacks …

Compassionate Conservatism Writ Large!

This is a short speech given by George W Bush yesterday. It was his first mention of the tragedy in Minneapolis the evening before. How inappropriate is this? Good morning. I just finished a Cabinet meeting. One of the things we discussed was the terrible situation there in Minneapolis. We …

Weiner Savage: Did Democrats Cause Roberts’ Seizure?

Shouldn’t We Fine the FCC for “Indecency”?

Want proof that the FCC is completely inept? For years, we’ve been treated to the spectacle of grown Republicans pretending to be offended by a one-second flash Janet Jackson’s right breast at the Super Bowl, and the "f-word" anywhere, to the point that the wingnuts have hijacked the FCC and …
