Paul Ryan discovers Ayn Rand was an atheist .. Oh Noes!

Back in 2009, Paul Ryan, GOP reptilian baby eating loser who wants to end Medicare and send the surplus to his zillionaire cronies, loved himself some Ayn Rand.

obamabidenbumpersticker

It’s not easy for progressives to come up with a simplistic soundbyte bumper sticker. We tend to get too wonky, down in the weeds on details, plus these days we’re often hamstrung by accuracy — an obstacle the usual suspects routinely drive right around without a care in the world. But this isn’t bad!

Teacher fired by Catholic school for getting pregnant the ‘wrong way’

The Roman Catholic Church loves them some babies, babies from incest, babies from rape, babies from unmarried consenting adults, doesn’t matter. They’re all good. But their view on parents is whacked out. For example, when a teacher and her husband turned to in vitro fertilization, the church canned her despite exemplary performance. Not sure how …

This is what scares the hell out of me about Romney et al

Most of the time I’m just playing partisan when criticizing politicians. But these guys worry me and it’s not just Romney per see, it’s the entire GOP-conservative corporate nexus on healthcare that scares the shit out of me. Some reported details, if you can call them that, on Romney’s answer to Romneycare have been leaking out and if …

It’s not often we get a fortuitous example of how the UFO-conspiracy crowd manufactures their BS. … OK, maybe it happens all the time! But an absolutely must see time elapsed video put together by the Cassini-Equinox team provides just such an opportunity. Below is that same video together with some background, culminating in the UFO nonsense.

Romney agrees with Obama on student loans, gasp!

There’s been some speculation on Romney’s “angle” on agreeing with Obama on student loan rates. What could possibly explain agreeing with a Kenyan Muslim atheist socialist usurper?

Operation Golden Shower: I’m only half kidding

I proposed this as satire a few years ago for Iraq, might as well use it in Afghanistan. Because it’s cheaper, way less dangerous, and it would probably work as well as whatever we’re supposed to be doing there now.

Shorter wingnuttia: What war on women? Now, about that WAR on women

I sometimes dream that we progressives will enjoy the same fruits our opponents feast so gleefully on. See, for them, consistency and principle is not an issue; you can both declare there is no such thing as a war on women, and bemoan the war on women, with little fear of ”Republicans fractured and in disarray” …
