Romney Plays Games With Taxes

The Romney campaign released Mitt’s 2011 taxes Friday afternoon in an attempt to put the whole tax issue behind them, but they’ve only raised more questions. As many people quickly pointed out, he actually overpaid his taxes to make sure that his rate stayed above that 13% he said was the bare minimum he’d paid. …

Court Issues TRO Allowing Football Bible Banners

In that battle over the use of Bible verses on banners held by cheerleaders for the team to run through at football games and Kountze, Texas, the district court has issued a temporary restraining order preventing the school from prohibiting such banners. The text of the order contains no explanation for that ruling. The suit …

Farah: Give Money to Bachmann

Worldnutdaily poobah Joseph Farah has an “urgent plea” to that site’s readers to send money to help the campaign of Michele Bachmann, who is facing a tough reelection challenge from Democrat Jim Graves. As usual, his grasp of the facts is not exactly firm:

Ellis Washington: We’re All Under Sharia Law Now

Yes, that’s what Ellis Washington actually declares in his latest column for the Worldnutdaily, that we are all living under Sharia law now. Of course, the fact that he is free to publish such tripe, and to publish at all as a Christian, kind of disproves that hyperbolic nonsense — but he never was known …

WND Peddles More Pseudo-Archaeology

The Worldnutdaily has another adverticle to sell a DVD that claims the Ark of the Covenant is buried beneath the Temple Mount in Jerusalem. And it’s got plenty of golly gee whiz technological nonsense in it, evidently. Like did you know they had hydraulic elevators 3000 years ago?

Greta on ‘Ceremonial Deism’

Our own Greta Christina has an article at AlterNet about the concept of “ceremonial deism,” which is the rather absurd term of art used by the Supreme Court to justify a whole range of public displays of religious piety, from “in God we trust” on the money to “under God” in the pledge of allegiance.

Paul Ryan Meets the AARP

In the most amusing political event since Mitt Romney went to speak to an NAACP convention, his vice presidential nominee, Paul Ryan, had the chutzpah to speak to the AARP. He was greeted with a chorus of boos repeatedly. Maybe he should have just shown them his abs.

One Woman’s Experience With the Drug War

My friend Juliet has finally written up a very long story of a situation that has been going on for a few months now. It involves many of the things I’ve long been writing about — the abuses of the war on drugs, the use of SWAT teams for no good reason, our dehumanizing criminal …

I Really Despise SE Cupp

I mean really, really, really despise her. She’s like nails on a chalkboard to me. Charles Pierce highlights this clip from The Cycle, where she throws out every right-wing myth about Obama — the out of context “you didn’t build this” quote, the “collectivist” nonsense. Steve Kornacki is trying his best to be polite rather …

Corsi Reveals Secret Obama Plan to Lose Election

You almost have to admire Jerome Corsi’s seemingly limitless ability to invent crazy theories. Fresh off his “discovery” that President Obama was married to a man in college (based on someone who went to school with them saying that he always suspected they were a couple, so it’s proven true) and the identity of Obama’s …

Rand Paul: Romney Has It In the Bag

Rand Paul appeared on Hugh Hewitt’s radio show and demonstrated his near-total disconnection with reality, declaring that despite all evidence to the contrary Mitt Romney already has the election in the bag and Obama might as well call the movers to the White House.

ZOMG! Obama’s Going to Release a Terrorist!

The latest ridiculous rumor making its way around the right wing media and blogosphere — and even Congress — is that the Obama administration is negotiating with Egypt to release Sheikh Omar Abdel Rahman, the blind imam responsible for the first bombing at the World Trade Center in 1993.

Alabama GOP Chairman Promotes Wingnut Movie

Right Wing Watch reports that Bill Armistead, the chairman of the Alabama Republican Party, told an audience of Republican women that they should see the “documentary” Dreams of My Real Father, which claims that Obama’s real father is Frank Marshall Davis, who is supposedly a communist. And they point out how this movie has caused …

Lipkin Continues to Drive the Crazy Train

Of all the right wing cranks out there pumping out loony Obama conspiracy theories, Avi Lipkin may be my favorite. He has the craziest theory of all — that Obama is going to move 50-100 million Muslims to America to take over the country. And the wingnuts are eating it up, putting him on radio …
