Archbishop Demands Censorship of Satanists

A group of Satanists is planning to enact a “black mass” at the civic center in Oklahoma City next month and Catholic Archbishop Paul Coakley is demanding that the city prevent them from doing so because it’s offensive to him. And he seems to be baffled as to why the city has not done so. Here’s a letter he released:

Risen Calls Obama Enemy of a Free Press

President Obama may have condemned the arrest of journalists by the police in Ferguson, Missouri, but James Risen, a reporter facing prison for refusing to name a CIA source, says that in reality he is the “greatest enemy to press freedom in a generation.” Risen has been harassed by the federal government for nearly a decade now because he has broken so many stories that have made it look bad.

Goldberg: Obama Would Appoint ‘Lesbian Transgender Poet’

Jonah Goldberg, only the second most pathetic editor at the National Review (Rich Lowry seeing starbursts when Sarah Palin winked at him means he’ll never relinquish that title as long as he lives), went on Fox News and reacted to President Obama urging people to keep the Senate in Democratic hands for potential Supreme Court appointments. Here’s what Obama said:

Land and Mills Lie Through Their Teeth

Worldnetdaily Still Beating Birther Drum

You almost have to admire the birthers for one thing: They sure don’t give up easily. They continue their impersonation of the black knight from Monty Python and the Holy Grail — “It’s just a flesh wound!” — with yet another attempt to get the Supreme Court to hear a case they’ve turned down many times before. “Obama Eligibility Case lives!” declares the headline.

How Women Get Trivialized

The execrable Dr. Keith Ablow, Fox News’ resident asshole psychologist, recently declared that Michelle Obama needs to “drop a few pounds.” He’s hardly alone. From the day her husband was elected, the right wing media has attacked her for the way she looks, ubiquitously referring to her as “Moochelle” and trivializing her solely because of the way she looks. Here are a bunch of clips of them doing so:
