Jeb Bush Kills His Campaign Before It Starts

Jeb Bush apparently decided to destroy his chances of winning the Republican presidential nomination before he’d even decided whether to run when he made an entirely reasonable statement about why people often immigrate in order to help their families. Reasonable statements like this one do not help one in a Republican primary:

Miller: Right Wing Watch is Of the Devil

Gina Miller, one of the columnists for Matt Barber’s new right wing clown car BarbWire, isn’t too happy that Right Wing Watch has been quoting some of the bizarre, extremist rhetoric she spews in her columns. Which means they work for Satan, of course. Don’t we all?

Klingenschmitt: Life Begins Before Conception

Leave it to Gordon Klingenschmitt to inform us all that life doesn’t begin at the point of viability or when a heartbeat can be detected or even at conception. No, life begins before conception “in the mind and heart of God.” So if you use birth control, you’re thwarting God’s will and you’re going to burn in hell. You have been warned.

Steve Deace Lies and Exaggerates

Wingnut radio show Steve Deace is so far to the right that he makes Michael Savage look like Noam Chomsky. He’s also highly dishonest and not very bright, which is why he says really stupid things like claiming in a column in the Moonie Times that ending sodomy laws led to fascism in America.

Ladies and Gentlemen, Jim DeMint

From the moment Jim DeMint first ran for the Senate on a platform of banning teachers who are gay or pregnant, I knew he would be one to watch. He may even be the wingnut equivalent of the Chosen One, the one who is foretold in ancient tales who would say things so breathtakingly stupid that it would cause a black hole to open up and swallow the earth. Enjoy this idiotic diatribe from an interview he did with Jerry Newcombe:

AHA Files Suit to Allow Humanist Groups in Prison

Many religious organizations are very active in prison and inmates are allowed to form prayer groups, Bible and Quran studies and the like, but humanism is not recognized for those purposes in federal prisons. The American Humanist Association has filed a lawsuit to change that.

Kissing Congressman to Run for Reelection

When the video of Rep. Vance McAllister making out with one of his staffers (both of them married to other people, unsurprisingly) surfaced, my response was “meh.” Ho hum, another Christian right, family values Republican caught cheating on his wife. Been there, seen that, pretty much on a monthly basis for years. But his handling of it afterward is pretty funny to me.

Liberty U. Hires Gay Choreographer

When they’re not ranting about how gay people are trying to destroy America, God and civilization itself, Liberty University takes a timeout from their bigotry to hire gay people as long as they have a skill that they can’t find among the righteous. You know, like choreography.

Starnes Bleats About Marriage

Todd Starnes of Fox News can almost always be counted on to offer the most hysterical and overblown perspective on any issue. In a column at Charisma News he makes some terrible arguments and unsupported claims about same-sex marriage, but he starts by displaying his inability to distinguish between TV and reality.

White Man’s March Protest Signs

After that ridiculous White Man’s March a few weeks ago, people began posting about potential protesting signs on Twitter using the hashtag #WhiteManMarchProtestSigns and the results are absolutely hilarious. A few of my favorites below the fold.

Lopez Makes Worst Anti-Equality Argument Ever

Even among the anti-gay right, Robert Oscar Lopez is a particularly bizarre voice. The only person who makes arguments that are on the same level of idiocy as him is Scott Lively. On Sandy Rios’ show this week he declared that allowing gay people to have children violates the 13th Amendment. Look at this argument:

Eric Holder Just Became My Hero

I’m not a big fan of Attorney General Eric Holder but he just became my hero. Remember a while back when Louis Gohmert, the dumbest man in Congress, accused Holder of “casting aspersions on my asparagus”? Here’s the video if you don’t remember it:

Root Claims Massive Voter Fraud

Wayne Allen Root, a birther and major conspiracy monger who was once the vice presidential candidate for the Libertarian Party, put out a video commentary a few weeks ago claiming that Obama only won in 2012 because “Democratic voters across this country are voting four times, five times, 10 times each for the Democrats.” His only support for this is the ridiculous myth about voting in Philadelphia, which has been debunked even by True the Vote, the anti-voter fraud group.

Herman Cain Lies About MLK

Herman Cain has joined with the hordes of other conservatives who are flat out lying about Martin Luther King and trying to turn him into one of them. While trying to respond to Rep. Keith Ellison’s proposed financial transaction tax, Cain said that King wasn’t into “class warfare.”

Fischer: Christianity Now Illegal in America!

This week the Supreme Court denied cert in the case involving a photography business in New Mexico that refused to do a lesbian wedding, leading Bryan Fischer to fire up the exaggeration machine and declare that it’s now a crime to be a Christian in the United States.
