Immigration: It’s Only Bad When Democrats Do It

The right wing is absolutely freaking out about Obama’s long-planned executive order that would defer deportation of some undocumented immigrants. They’re demanding that the Republicans shut down the government and impeach Obama over it, calling it treasonous and claiming that it will destroy America! But their own presidents have done identical things multiple times without a peep from Republicans.

Palin Babbles About Billy Graham

This video is both amusing and annoying. It’s a perfect example of why Tina Fey was able to do a spot-on impersonation of Sarah Palin without actually changing her words at all. She’s self-parodying. She’s talking about Billy Graham and just babbling incoherently and endlessly. I especially like when she said that Graham had a special anointment from God to “stay out of the politics of it all.” Seriously? This is a guy who sat in the oval office with Richard Nixon talking about how those evil Jews were out to get them.

Will Rand Paul Sue to Overturn Kentucky Law?

That Rand Paul plans to run for president in 2016 is as obvious as it could possibly be, but he has a problem. His Senate term is also up in 2016 and Kentucky law prevents him from running for two seats simultaneously. They hoped the Republicans would take control of the Kentucky legislature this year and change the law, but that didn’t happen. What to do? Sue to overturn the law.

Worldnetdaily Hearts Geocentrism

The Worldnetdaily is helping promote a new documentary that argues for a geocentric universe. Naturally, they assigned movie reviewer Drew Zahn, who knows less than nothing about science, to write the article and don’t even attempt to examine the actual science. But they do quote Rick DeLano, the producer of the film, saying all kinds of nonsensical things:

Wingnut: The Gay All About Population Control

Julio Severo is a Brazilian wingnut who is now writing for BarbWire, where he makes the incredibly absurd claim that the fight for LGBT equality is really all about reducing the population. Because, silly rabbit, causal connections are for intelligent people, none of which can be found here. Referring to a USAID conference on gay rights around the world last week, he writes:

King: Immigration Action Would Trigger Descent Into the Abyss

Rep. Steve King, whose entire political career is built on sowing unjustified fear through the use of hyperbole and demagoguery, told Rick Santorum, who was guest hosting for Steve Deace, that if Obama defers deportation for some immigrants America will be “descending abruptly into an abyss that we have never seen in the history of this country.”

Beck Slams ‘Lonely’ People who Question His ‘Illness’

Last week Glenn Beck announced that he had been diagnosed with “adrenal fatigue” by a “chiropractic neurologist” who cured him of a whole range of mysterious symptoms. Many doctors have stepped forward to call bullshit on his story, saying that the symptoms he said he had are not related to adrenal fatigue and that “chiropractic neurology” is pure quackery. On Facebook, he lashed out at those sad and lonely people who doubt his story:

WND Interviews Woman Who Crashed Muslim Prayer Meeting

The Worldnutdaily is absolutely giddy that a woman interrupted a Muslim prayer session at the National Cathedral and they managed to get an interview with her to explain why she did what she did. I’m sure it will come as a shock that her reasons were completely warped and that she thinks she was specifically called by God to do what she did.

Glenn Beck Explains Why Nicki Minaj Isn’t Kosher Enough

Glenn Beck says he’s now cured of that mysterious, non-existent illness that made him sound “crazy,” but that doesn’t keep him from still making long, rambling, bizarre diatribes like this one. He explains how a Nicki Minaj video isn’t kosher and we should all keep kosher (I haven’t seen the video and have no desire to do so; I couldn’t possibly give any less of a fuck about Nicki Minaj).
