This Week’s GOP Primary Voters Think Obama’s Muslim

By: Monday March 12, 2012 6:30 pm

Most of you know I could give two hoots about anybody’s religion, including the lack of my own. Whatever belief system you choose, I’m cool — as long as your belief system impinges not one iota on me.

Like, ever.

So a diary from me about religion might seem out of context, except this isn’t really about religion. It’s about ignorance. America the Stupid. People who just won’t pay attention to the facts. People whose votes are soon to be billed as Very Important.


Late Night FDL: The Nitty Gritty

By: Friday March 9, 2012 8:00 pm

When Lou Reed wrote “Things go from bad to weird” 30 years ago, he might well have been thinking of this week in politics. Amazingly, it’s only been in the space of a few days that news junkies’ attention has been drawn from the ongoing clusterf**k of the Republican presidential campaign to advertisers pouring fuel on Rush Limbaugh’s self-immolation, and then to whatever you call this zombie-Breitbart manufactured controversy.

Late Night FDL: Absence Makes the Heart Grow Fonder

By: Saturday February 11, 2012 8:00 pm

How must it feel to be Mitt Romney right now, seeing Rick Santorum bubbling up to the top in the latest national polls? Is he starting to get the hint yet that — presumptive front-runner or not — the Republican base just doesn’t want him to be their nominee for the White House?

Late Night FDL: What Do They Want?

By: Friday January 20, 2012 8:00 pm

Like a lot of folks, I’ve been having a grand time poking fun at the Republican 2012 presidential nomination contest for several months now.  But at this point, it’s almost gotten too surreal for even a cynic like me. As of a week ago, most of the drama (or comedy) seemed to be over, as [...]

Rick Santorum’s “I didn’t say THAT” Tour

By: Saturday January 7, 2012 1:00 pm

Faced with long-standing agreement about what he said about same-sex unions being like “man-on-dog” as well as clear video evidence that he said he didn’t want to give “black people” more government money, Rick Santorum has taken the best GOP refuge: he’s denying that’s what he said. It’s the best refuge because it’s worked for others in his party.

Late Night FDL: Mourning Newt

By: Friday January 6, 2012 8:00 pm

If you begin to feel like your sense of the seasons is out of whack, it’s not just the mild winter weather across the country right now.  The frightening upshot of Mitt Romney’s clear path to the Republican nomination for the White House is that it might as well be the fall of 2012 right [...]

How Many Times Can Herman Cain Jump the Shark; Plus Perry’s Major Malfunction

By: Thursday November 10, 2011 7:06 am

I don’t know what it will take for Herman Cain to realize that his ride in the 2012 GOP Clown Car is over, but I’m guessing that the numerous accusations from women that he sexually harassed/assaulted aren’t doing the trick. After a bold, insane statement like this, I’m sure of it (via TPM): “Herman Cain: For Every Person Who Says I Harassed Them, There Are ‘Thousands’ Who Say I Didn’t.”
