NRCC Puts Its Money Where The Insanity Is

I think this means they’re desperate: The National Republican Congressional Committee, which runs the GOP effort to recapture the House, has now expanded its list of vulnerable Republican incumbents the NRCC is committed to protecting, and one new name jumped out at me: Rep. Bill Posey of Florida. Rep. Posey, as it happens, is the …

Happy Hour Discurso

Today’s opining on the public discourse. Another day, another round of Con and Blue Dog dumbfuckery on health care reform. Sigh. The big news, of course, is that Energy and Commerce Committee Chairman Henry Waxman stepped hard on the Blue Dogs’ tails: A good health care bill has already passed the House Ways and Means …

Mah Excuses

If we’re very fortunate, this week’s Sunday Sensational Science will be all about botany. It was supposed to be about the geology of the Wupatki region, but, well, you see, the cat got involved… It’s a large book with glossy pages, and she thinks I purchased it for her comfort rather than our edification. All …

Yet More Birther Bullshit

Credit where it’s due: Rep. Dave Reichert has to do a tapdance for the crazies in his base, but at least he admits the President is a natural-born citizen and wishes him success: Meanwhile, G. Gordon Liddy’s on Hardball bleating insanity: G. Gordon Liddy, the man behind the first Watergate break-in and founding father of …

Happy Hour Discurso

Today’s opining on the public discourse. If any of you were in any doubts as to what the Cons think of health care reform, let Sen.

Lying for Jesus: Proclamation Edition

Doesn’t this come under the heading of “Bearing false witness“? The circus sideshow led by Sally Kern in Oklahoma gets more ridiculous by the day. Now a Baptist publication was caught red handed printing a copy of Kern’s morality proclamation along with faked signatures from other government officials as though they were endorsing that proclamation. …

McCain’s Verbal Acrobatics

McCain does his best to make two mutually exclusive claims at once, leading to hilarity: John McCain with a bit of verbal acrobatics on CNN’s American Morning, trying to say the stimulus package was a failure while decrying the “politics” being played when Ray LaHood told his Governor they were free to follow McCain and …

Happy Hour Discurso

Today’s opining on the public discourse. Con Party Motto: “If you can’t beat ‘em, try to terrify ‘em into submission.” Last week, ThinkProgress noted that the right-wing had escalated its fearmongering rhetoric on health care, with multiple Republican members of Congress saying that Americans would die if health reform passed. “Absolutely,” replied Sen. Tom Coburn …

We Need Birther Control

We’ve got a population explosion of Birthers. The stupidity’s multiplying exponentially, much like Tribbles. I think an air drop of condoms is in order. The first person who needs one snapped right over his ejaculations is Lou Dobbs: Today, Political Wire posted a clip of an episode of Lou Dobbs’ radio show in which he …
