NC’s GOP-Led Ruin: Working hard not to create jobs, but to go after gays, Latinos…and enter wombs, bedrooms

By: Saturday March 30, 2013 5:20 pm

It was all too predictable. I wish that I could kick the @sses of the “reasonable but disengaged” NC voters — and there are way too many of them — who were too lazy/apathetic to cast a ballot to avoid the calamity we are witnessing now. That and the wreck of a state Dem party.


The Tea Party Nation’s Answer to Newtown Massacre: Put Armed George Zimmermans in the Classroom

Dirty Pool

As dispiriting as it is to be a Democrat these days, what with the equivocating and serial cave-ins to the opposition, at least it isn’t downright embarrassing. All but the most craven of Democrats at least vaguely attempt to run on a platform of some sort, and have the decency to make at least desultory attempts to implement it if elected. More importantly, they generally make a pretense of playing by the rules in elections.

Not so Republicans.

Late Night FDL: Rounding Errors

By: Thursday April 5, 2012 8:00 pm

Back during the Wisconsin protests, Governor Scott Walker lamented the extensive damage protesters caused to the state capitol and grounds, and in a transparent bid for manufactured outrage, “estimated” the damage at a whopping $7.5 million. The figure was widely reported, but outside of Fox News, was just as widely disbelieved, and for good reason. The actual cost? About $200,000.

Tennessee Tea Party: Downplay Slavery in History Books – It Tarnishes Rep of Founding Fathers

By: Monday January 23, 2012 3:30 pm

The uncomfortable truth that some of our founding fathers owned human beings to work their fields, clean and cook in their homes, and serve as forced concubines has upset the Tennessee Tea Party. So the Tea Party wants the textbooks to have a new way of portraying the ”Minority Experience In History.”

Disgraced Former Speaker and Long-Time Washington Insider Now Leading Presidential Candidate of the Tea Party

By: Friday November 11, 2011 10:30 am

That’s right, a guy who pocketed $300,000 to shill for Freddie & Fannie, ran up a six-figure tab at Tiffany, and who’s been part of the Washington establishment for 32 years — this is the guy Teabaggers want to put in the White House.

Attention Conservatives Trying to Play Guilt-by-Association with Occupy Wall Street: Bring It On

By: Sunday October 16, 2011 12:15 pm

I see the wingnuts are running around trying to tie the Occupy Wall Street movement with Nazis and Communists. Oh, this is going to be fun.

Republicans Scramble to Side with Wall Street over Main Street

By: Sunday October 9, 2011 1:05 pm

One of the best byproducts of the Occupy Wall Street protests is that they’ve made Republicans show their true colors. America is watching as they cast off the faux right-wing populism of the Teabaggers — which was always a pose — and unabashedly embrace the monied oligarchy.

Texas Tea Party to Attack Rick Perry on Immigration

By: Wednesday September 28, 2011 10:30 am

Immigration will doom the Secessionist’s campaign. Willard is already running attack ads against him on the issue, and now, Texas Teabaggers — who never liked the Secessionist — are piling on, too.

Jim DeMint Staffer Mocks Flash Flood Warnings

By: Sunday August 28, 2011 11:30 am

Like a bunch of happy pigs rolling around in the mud, conservatives are really reveling in their anti-government fanaticism this week. After Marco Rubio (R-FL) explained how the Great Society and New Deal made the United States a nation of weaklings, Ron Paul (R-TX) declared that we don’t need FEMA and that things were like, way better in 1900. But amidst all this crazy, one particularly wingnutty remark stands out.
