Newt Thanks Supporters as He Exits GOP Clown Car

By: Wednesday May 2, 2012 9:30 am

We pause a moment to commemorate Newt Gingrich suspending his book tour — uh, his campaign to become President. To a discerning public, he revealed the nature of Mitt Romney’s vulture capitalism, exposed its racism and anti-immigrant hatreds, and personified everything that went wrong with his party. We are grateful for such comings and goings.


Santorum: Leading the GOP’s Transformation into the Fundamentalist Crazy Train

By: Wednesday February 22, 2012 12:25 pm

I am used to reading completely crazy, sex-obsessed things from Peter LaBarbera, or junk science from hate group leader Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council. But in 2012, Clown Car candidate Rick Santorum has ushered in an impressive and visible new era of religious right/junk science/insane statements that suggests the Republican Party either cannot or will not deal with the basic political realities going on in this nation.

By: Saturday February 11, 2012 5:00 pm

No two major media outlets agree on GOP delegate counts, although almost all have the ranking the same: Rmoney, Santorum, Gingrich, and Paul. The exception being the most trusted name in news: CNN ranks the contenders Rmoney, Gingrich, Santorum, Paul.

Santorum Questions Women in Frontline Military Roles Because ‘Other Types of Emotions Are Involved’

By: Friday February 10, 2012 6:08 am

Please tell me that I didn’t just step out of a time machine. I guess I probably didn’t travel too far back in time, given we’re talking about Republicans in the 2012 GOP Clown Car cycle, because this is what Rick Santorum said just yesterday in an interview with CNN’s John King about the Pentagon considering relaxing rules regarding women and frontline roles in combat.

Vice Media Gals Ask Callista and Newt if They’re in an Open Marriage (VIDEO)

By: Thursday February 2, 2012 3:21 pm

Someone actually asked the question that has been on a lot of people’s minds since Newt Gingrich’s second wife, Marianne, spilled the beans that Newt actually asked her about having an open marriage (after boinking his mistress and future wife Callista for years). Marianne didn’t agree, so Newt, who had dogged Bill Clinton about WH blow jobs during the same period the former House Speaker was also receiving extramarital servicing, asked for a divorce.

Is Newt swinging with wife #3?

Mittens’ Money Fuels Anti-gay Organizations Including His Church that Led the Charge for Prop 8

By: Tuesday January 24, 2012 2:15 pm

So we have learned that Mittens will pay about 15% taxes on his millions for 2011, and that while he was telling voters he was “unemployed,” he was underwriting anti-gay activity — including the Mormon church, which bankrolled the ant-gay Proposition 8 campaign in California.

An Open Letter to Newt Gingrich From the Pastors of Poor Children

By: Monday January 23, 2012 7:03 am

Newt Gingrich has repeatedly made comment that denigrate poor people but are little more than racist and classist stereotypes and dog whistles. This open letter by Joi Ruth Orr, Director of Organizing, Faith Leaders for Community Change, calling for an apology from Mr. Gingrich, needs to be spread far and wide.

In the ‘What Were They Thinking’ Dept: Rick Santorum Launches C.U.M.

By: Sunday January 22, 2012 7:20 pm

This comes from the land of “you can’t make this sh*t up.” GOP Clown Car occupant, ace homophobe and bearer of a redefined surname that has become a giant political problem for him on Google, Rick Santorum is not doing himself any more favors by launching the Conservatives United Moneybomb, or C.U.M. for short.

Mittens and His Craptastic Debate Performance: Dodging Tax Questions, Claims He Lived on ‘Real Streets’ of America

By: Friday January 20, 2012 6:55 am

Yeah, we can talk about how Newt went ballistic and blamed the media for asking about his wandering pee-pee and alleged open marriage request of wife #2, or how Rick Santorum finally located his #clownballs and pummeled Romney and Newt mercilessly in a desperate attempt to remain relevant, but it was Mittens, poor little Mittens, who stunk up the joint at the CNN Debate held in Charleston, SC Thursday night.

Newt Wife #2: He Asked Me for an Open Marriage so He Could Continue Boinking Callista

By: Thursday January 19, 2012 9:35 am

I wonder what Calista thinks about this? And Newt wants to ensure gays and lesbians don’t have access to civil marriage. The hypocrisy meter just shattered.
