Farah’s YEC Irrationality

In the wake of Sen. Marco Rubio’s politically convenient but highly ignorant answer to a question about the age of the earth, Joseph Farah comes riding in on his hobby horse to defend young earth creationism.

Ann Coulter: Voice of Reason?

Every once in a while, something happens that is so shocking, so completely in opposition to everything you know about the world, that it’s quite unsettling.

Rep. Scott DesJarlais, the “pro-family” and “pro-life” congressman from Tennessee who supported his wife’s two abortions and encouraged one of his many mistresses to have one as well, says it’s totally unfair of you to think he’s a hypocrite. Because his views have “evolved” on that issue.

Obama Confesses to Voter Fraud!

The Worldnutdaily is once again breathlessly reporting the bizarre ideas of Andrew Hodges, the “forensic profiler” who claims to be able to read Obama’s mind by looking “between the lines” of what he says.

This time it’s a suit against the owner of the Park 51 Islamic Center, the infamous and misnamed Ground Zero Mosque, for “public and private nuisance, intentional and negligent infliction of emotional distress, and assault.” You can …

Behold, the Awesome Power of The Gay

We’re all accustomed to hearing wingnut preachers blame every natural disaster on gay people, but here’s a new one. There was recently a massive solar flare, called a coronal mass ejection, that was captured by NASA and the images widely viewed. And that, of course, is also the fault of The Gay:
