GOP Rep. Thinks American Officials are From India

Rep. Curt Clawson, a Tea Party-backed Republican congressman from Florida, made a complete ass out of himself during a committee hearing by talking to two senior administration officials, both of apparent Indian descent, as though they represented the Indian government rather than ours.

Mainstreaming the Fringe Backfires on the GOP

I’ve been arguing for the last four years that the Republican party has created a major problem for itself by trying to ride the enthusiasm of the Tea Party movement to electoral success. It’s been a successful strategy, but it has brought the far-right fringe into the mainstream of the party and now the horse …

A Republican candidate for the Clark County Commission in Nevada named Cindy Lake, who has been endorsed by none other than Ron Paul, went off at a recent event about the evils of fluoride in the drinking water and expressed concern about the dangers of chemtrails.

Todd Akin: Totally Not Playing the Victim

Todd Akin’s comeback tour is inadvertently turning into a comedy show. On the Steve Deace show, Deace began the interview by declaring, “We’re conservatives here, so we’re not into victimology.” And literally one minute later Akin said, “There was an obvious intent on the part of left to victimize anybody which (sic) is Republican if …

Christian Right Suddenly Opposes Discrimination

Ladies and gentlemen, we have a new Christian martyr. His name is Bob Eschliman and he was recently fired as the editor of a small Iowa newspaper after writing on his personal blog about Satan being behind the “Gaystapo” that is going to destroy…well, everything. Todd Starnes immediately got an erection and ran to his …

Wingnut: Warren Presidency Would Be ‘Communist Coup’

Matt Barber’s site BarbWire published a column by someone named Luke Hamilton claiming that Obama is trying to get Elizabeth Warren elected president instead of Hillary (good luck with that one) to complete the “communist coup” he allegedly has begun. Because as we all know, the hallmark of every communist coup is a booming stark …

GOP Candidate Thinks People Can Own Missiles

Jody Hice, the preacher who won a Republican runoff and is almost certainly going to be elected to Congress from Georgia this year, has been trying to remove the archives of his radio show because he’s said some truly whacky things on there, like that the 2nd Amendment allows people to own missiles and fighter …

Rios: Beware of Transgender FBI Agents

Sandy Rios of the American Family Association, like the entire Christian right, is known to get a little hysterical when things don’t go her way. She’s awfully upset about President Obama’s executive order banning discrimination by federal contractors and this is her highly bizarre reaction:

Rush: Obama Behind the Downed Malaysian Airliner

Erik Rush has already told the world, with no evidence whatsoever, that the Malaysian airplane that disappeared over the Pacific Ocean was done by Obama. Now he says Obama is behind the one that was shot down over the Ukraine as well. And the irony just drips off the screen.

Beck’s Astounding Response to Defamation Suit

As I’ve noted before, Glenn Beck is being sued for defamation by a Saudi student he accused repeatedly of being the “money man” behind the Boston Marathon bombings, with not a shred of evidence. His response to that lawsuit is not surprising, but it’s pretty astonishing for its sheer chutzpah.

‘Dr’ Alex McFarland is a Genius

“Dr” Alex McFarland is the director of the Center for Christian Worldview and Apologetics at North Greenville University. He isn’t actually a doctor, though. In fact, he was awarded an honorary doctorate by the Southern Evangelical Seminary the same year he was named its president, which sounds totally legit. But you can’t put anything past …

Klingenschmitt Apparently Hasn’t Read the Bible

I’m beginning to suspect that Gordon Klingenschmitt may be an elaborate Poe. On his Pray in Jesus’ Name internet show this week he actually slammed Islam because they force women to marry their rapists, saying that this is proof that Islam is a demonic religion.

Another Fake Jefferson Quote From the Christian Right

There is a quote that is often attributed to Albert Einstein, which he probably did not say, to the effect that there are only two infinite things in existence: the universe and human stupidity. Let me suggest that there may be another — fake Jefferson quotes (and, ironically, fake Einstein quotes). Here’s yet another one, …

The Single Dumbest Thing I’ve Ever Read

Readers of this blog know that I document every day the staggeringly inane things said by the Christian right, so believe me when I say that I do not exaggerate when I say that this column at American Thinker is the single dumbest thing I have ever read. It’s so dumb that I suggest that …
