So You Know Exactly How God Did It, Then?

You know, sometimes it seems like USA has come to stand for “United States of Appalling Ignorance.”  A lot of people in this country need to read an improving book.  And I’m not talking about the Bible.  That one only seems to improve people’s ability to be smug about their appalling ignorance.MTHellfire found this bit …

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 …

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 …

Reading Comprehension FAIL and Other “Cons Desperate for an Obama Scandal” Stories

The Cons and their slobbering media lapdogs are absolutely, bowel-clenchingly, pants-pissingly terrified of Barack Obama. A bold claim, you say? Evidence to back it up, you ask? Why, certainly, on both counts. If they weren’t terrified of the man, they wouldn’t have to work so damned hard to destroy him. They know he’s a force …

Way to Support the Troops

Faux News favorite Ralph Peters, showing just how much the right loves the troops: Pfc. Bowe Bergdahl, the U.S. soldier who has been captured by the Taliban and appears in a video released this weekend by his captors, “went missing from his base in eastern Afghanistan on June 30.” The circumstances of his capture are …

Walter Cronkite was So Right

Walter Cronkite was one of the last of a dying breed – a teevee journalist who was a journalist in truth rather than just name: Americans of all ages and the journalist community are remembering the life and career of Walter Cronkite, famously revered as “the most trusted man in America.” Salon’s Glenn Greenwald notes …

Faux News Host Thinks Americans Marry “Other Species”

You know, the Con’s ignorance about basic science is just getting abjectly pathetic: “Fox & Friends” host Brian Kilmeade probably isn’t quite sharp enough to realize why his comments this morning were a little crazy even for Fox News. It’s a shame, because if he thought about it, he might be embarrassed. Kilmeade was reflecting …

Erick Erickson Loses the Last of His Marbles

And I know he’s lost them, because only a mableless man would compare Rush Limbaugh to Jesus. That’s right. Jesus. Christ. Peter, under pressure and fear, denied Christ not just once, but three times. Peter, though, feared death. The strain on Peter was great. The rest of us, though, typically fear the opinions of others. …

Hannity, the Defiant Coward

Are you fucking kidding me? I’m getting rather ambivalent about having celebrities get waterboarded, even when it changes their opinion like Erich “Mancow” Mueller. It’s torture, now he knows it. But the more it is done the more it becomes a parlor trick in too many eyes. It’s torture, it’s a crime not a game …

Kristol Ball Breaking

Note to Bill Kristol: don’t start a second career as a psychic anytime soon. Today, President Obama picked Judge Sonia Sotomayor as his Supreme Court nominee. On Fox News Sunday this past week, right-wing pundit Bill Kristol (ie “Kristol Ball”) confidently predicted that Michigan Gov. Jennifer Granholm (D) would be the next Supreme Court nominee: …
