Wingnuts: Feminists Are ‘Selfish, Narcissistic, Family-Destroying Whores’

Kevin Swanson and Dave Buehner of Generations Radio spend pretty much their entire show every day saying things that are abysmally inane. But this exchange is over the top, even for them. They think Sarah Palin is a feminist, but only a mildly bad one. The really bad ones…well, just watch. Right Wing Watch has the transcript.

NBA Star Talks About His Two Mothers

Kenny Faried is one of my favorite players in the NBA. He’s this generation’s Ben Wallace, came out of a small school and just plays with a ferocity and relentlessness that is great to watch. And guess what? He has two lesbian mothers. And he made a video with them in support of marriage equality in Colorado (he plays for the Denver Nuggets).

Dean Goes Full Godwin

Bradlee Dean isn’t just tipping his toe in the water of Lake Godwin, he’s doing a cannonball off the dock while yelling “the Nazis are coming, the Nazis are coming!” In his latest insipid Worldnutdaily column, he compares America to Germany in the 1930s, failing to stop President Obama’s headlong rush to fascism. “Are we as asleep as the Germans of the ’30s,” he asks.

NM Legislator Tries to Ban Abortion to ‘Preserve Evidence’

I should probably have reached the point where I can’t be shocked anymore by what any Republican politician does by now, but I apparently haven’t. You’d think the GOP would be staying a million miles away from any issue to do with abortion and rape, but one New Mexico legislator has submitted an appalling bill:

Reid Screwed Up Online Poker Legalization

Politico reports that Sen. Harry Reid screwed up a chance to legalize online poker, though I’m not really crazy about the way it was going to be done. He did manage to get some Republicans on board but then apparently bungled the opportunity to get the package through the Senate (whether it would have passed the House is another question).
